Oh, we are in the home stretch! I can feel my days off creeping up!
I'm breaking out all the gewgaws and bling and stuff this month. All aboard for ruffles!here with my schoolmarm look. I pinned the neck at the top with my sparkly starburst brooch instead of a necklace.
My strapless dress comes out to play again - I last wore it here with the same boots, my glorious (and ruffled) Velazquez Baroques by Fluevog.
The sparkly thing about my middle is this incredible hand-beaded belt.
here) for $20.00. I think it's from the 80s - Birks doesn't do any clothing items, but they did some beaded bags back then. Anyway, it's so beautiful, but I don't wear it too often, as it does up in the back with velcro and can fall off (it fell off once today).

It's been a while since I put up some pictures of Vizzini.
But then he's all full of love when I get home.
Striped tights, strapless dress, and fabulous gewgaws, hooray!ReplyDelete
Lol, Vizzini - I know that "wasting away ... feeling faint ... starving" pantomime! Food is love, you know.
Look at those 2 cute little white toenails, or I guess they're claws on cats.ReplyDelete
You've got some great boots on here Sheila. Happy Holidays to you!
Adore the blouse. Looks like something from my dreams. Your outfits are always such fun.ReplyDelete
Glorious belt! I remember a totally amazing beaded belt my mom wore for (LARP) costumes throughout the 90s. I wonder if she still has it.ReplyDelete
I don't know if you've noticed, but since you've gotten Vizzini, his pupils are more 'round'. I don't know if it has to do with lighting or what, but he looks more cute-cat and lovey. Maybe it's just a food begging mechasnism. Spike does the big-cute eyes when he wants food.
Annabelle, my little feral girl, doesn't have any manners, and has more "cat" pupils.
This might be my favourite outfit of yours ever! I love the lace blouse under the strapless dress, and those boots are amazing!ReplyDelete
You have me wanting to hunt out strapless dresses and blouses now.
I really love how you put that strapless dress over that shirt. What a great idea!ReplyDelete
Oh I love the beaded belt, it's beautiful!ReplyDelete
Hello sweet Vizzini! He is so handsome! I can't get over how much he looks like my Pippin sometimes!
Never go up against a grumpy cat when food is on the line!ReplyDelete
I love the strapless dress/blouse look. You really rock it! And those booooooots. Gorgeous.
The belt is STUNNING!! I love the strapless dress over the lacy blouse-and those BOOTS!!ReplyDelete
But as usual for me you are again upstaged by the cuteness of Vizzini!! How can you compete with such a handsome fellow??
You are the master of re-mixing strapless dresses. Love this look and that incredible beaded belt. Maybe it would be worth it to have a tailor put a more secure fastener on it?ReplyDelete
Vizzini looks like King of the World on his perch. The Absent Minded Professor's cat from before our marriage has discovered Sasha Jane's kitten food. I think he wanted her gone because she hasn't given up trying to make him play with her, but now he's all, "You can stay because you get the good stuff."
Sheila, that dress is great! And what a fabulous idea for wearing the strapless dress over the blouse. Oh my! You have opened up a world of ideas here! Love, love those boots!!ReplyDelete
Aww Vizzini is so cute! :) Really like the blouse worn with the strapless dress, and that belt is beautiful! Such lovely detail :)ReplyDelete
