Space Flowers

It's getting so close! Three more days and I am on vacation!
More shine today! Note the bizarre pink light in my outdoor stair shot. These are my new grey floral tights - the pattern is not printed on them, but actually woven into them.

This super-shiny jacket always elicits comments. I may have made the "live long and prosper" Spock sign at a few people. I last wore it in August here - I think I will have to call it my "beam me up" jacket.
I like to contrast the space-age-y-ness of the jacket - today's outfit features ruffles and flowers to counteract the shine and angular cut of the jacket. I'm wearing a fuscia pink satin blouse (last seen here in July with my ginormous plaid skirt) under it that has ruffles down the front.
My skirt is like, totally tubular (only people who remember "Valley Girl" will get that). I haven't worn it since I got my last tattoo back here in November. It's very comfy.

By the way, this is the reason for the pink light on me on the stairs this morning.
 So completely gorgeous - but "red at morning, sailors' warning"! It is indeed now raining. Blergh.

The stuff:
My shoes aren't really the right pinky-red for the rest of the pinky tones in my outfit, but I don't care. I love them and hug them and call them George, anyway. I bought them on the weekend, here. They were lovely and comfortable (a small bit of a rub above my ankle that will loosen up as the leather softens). And I'm off to wear them to my WW meeting - last one of the year!

Futuristic floral bling.

  4. Like, totally tubular, yah? I can't believe you found those shoes. They are my kind of George. I like how you cinched the jacket too. I have Trouble with white jackets but find myself drawn to them. It's the best time having holidays so within reach.

  10. oops I meant to comment on this post - I looked at the other pics with this jacket and I like the shiny jacket worn with the lapels showing since it looks more like a moto jacket. You would look very much on-trend wearing it with skinny jeans and silver shoes for a trendy evening outfit or even a polished semi-casual look.

  11. I would hug those shoes too. Whoever saw you in these pinky tones was a lucky person!

  12. Gorgeous pinky and spacey outfit. Where does the 'love them and hug them and call them George' comment come from? I used to say that when I was little, but have no idea where it came from... xx

    1. It's from a cartoon! This one with Daffy Duck (youtube): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEB2CXw-k5I.

      However, the cartoon is actually referencing a scene from "Of Mice and Men" when Lenny accidentally kills a bunny (I think). Check it out here (Wiki): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Of_Mice_and_Men_in_popular_culture
