And here we are: Friday, my sweet friend. I've had a couple of pints of cider to send off a now-former coworker (hi, Jessica!), and I'm feeling the happy buzz of the weekend.
We wrap up this week's fun theme, "Shoes My Husband Hates" and hasn't it been a blast?"Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat" soundtrack featuring Donny Osmond - I saw him live with my mom! - until I am old and decrepit!). Check him out here!
Ahem. To the outfit! This is my "fruital" (as opposed to floral) blouse, which had the appropriate boho vibe to go with the shoes. I last wore it here in April under a blue dress.

here in June with orange and purple. What does L have to say about them?
Well, first of all, those shoes were red, not pink, and secondly, that was an old picture I sent him - I'm not wearing a dress today - and finally, thirdly, he's totally right. I actually don't wear these shoes very much, and I have so many other pairs of shoes that I love more that would look great with this outfit. So I'm giving them up. Into the donate pile.“A return to form to round out the week, with a pair of shoes I seriously don’t like. These have the full cork heels I disliked on Thursday’s pair, minus the attractive pink colour. Instead we are treated to Saddle Bag Brown (this is an actual paint colour I use to paint saddle bags on miniatures). The fringe is particularly…ugh. I just don’t think footwear should remind you of the flap on a leather case where you keep your extra six-gun ammo and chaw. Love the dress though, as well as the woman wearing it.”
And there was much celebrating! Thank you, L, for being a good sport and for writing such funny review of the shoes you love to hate. You rock, love.
Those feather earring always cause a stir - they match my hair really well (heh, right down to my newly-exposed white temples!). They are also much desired by Vizzini. He would like to hug them and love them and call them George, and of course that would include eating them. He tried to climb me this morning to get to them.
