Gah, I am severely cranky and tired. I worked an 11-hour day today, my head is pounding and the computer is acting up. So forgive me for my terseness (should it apply), and also for cramming my weekend outfits into my Monday post.
Saturday, pre-Ulty outfit.
The dress is a favourite from a couple of years ago, last seen here with a black leather obi in April.
here to the vintage fair the weekend before last.
Dress (Smoking Lily), boots (1883 Lucchesse, consignment).
On Sunday, this is what I wore to get groceries. It was overcast but warm. Time for...
I like this loose blouse-y top. I last wore it here in May with long black leather.
here to September 2013 for Monochromania Week for the last time they were worn.
here for $38.98. No rubbing and quite comfortable for the walk to town and back.
Please note that my bigass gold hoops (that's real gold, thankyouverymuch) are again in style - Wendy Brandes says so, so it must be true! These were a 5th anniversary gift from L in 2002.
Blouse (Hale Bob, thrifted), pants (Contrast, thrifted), shoes (Born, consignment), hoop earrings (gift from L).
Vizzini is disgusted by the weather. He keeps flopping about and looking at us piteously, like we somehow caused the heat (as it's gotten hotter).

Today was a crazy day. I worked late on the newsletter.
I love this blouse. It's got it all: paisley, bigass cuffs and ruffles, it's sheer. I last wore it here in April with aqua (and I ended up getting rid of that suit, due to moth damage. Sad).
here...wow, in February. That's been way too long.
Blouse (CAbi, consignment), skirt (Andre Courreges, vintage 80s, thrifted), shoes (Navid O'Nadia, thrifted), earrings (local), ring (Wendy Brandes).
Eleven-hour day, working late on a newsletter... Vizinni is merely trying to teach you a lesson by example, like Master Po to Grasshopper. "Relaaaax." Ha, easy for him to say. Where are our treats?ReplyDelete
But you do have some awesome clothing here. Dress, boots, ruffly paisley, skirts. The quality and your style leap off the page.
Oh, those cowboy boots, yes!! I also love your other two outfits, overheating and unloved shoes and all. Fingers crossed for some shorter days, my cool cats!ReplyDelete
We can learn from the Cat: when in doubt, lie down. Love these looks, esp the thick "feel me" skirt. Hope today is easier!ReplyDelete
You look good in pants. You've got the figure for them. I don't remember ever seeing you in pants before. And big hoop earrings always look good on gals with short hair. Hope your headache goes away.ReplyDelete
I love all the outfits, but I'm seriously laughing at the Vizzini picture after you woke him up - if looks could kill!!! Always good to see him though, love your kitty!!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous blue wool skirt!! I am a bit allergic to wool, but I find it so absolutely lovely!!ReplyDelete
Love that green dress, and the ruffled blouse with the blue skirt is classically gorgeous! xxxReplyDelete
You look so pretty in green, that is one fab dress. Your blog rocks my world.ReplyDelete
I get exhausted just reading about everything you do! I love that green dress with a whole bunch of love. I just might have now decided that rich blues and greens are your best colours! I laughed when I read about you making people feel the blouse because I do that too with some of my clothing. And yes, we did call them clam diggers. I had a pair that were very similar to those you are wearing and I remember very excitedly ordering them out of the Sears catalog. They were also sometimes called pedal pushers, though I think that is for slightly longer ones.ReplyDelete
That last look is my favourite, it looks like an outfit I would see them wonderful women of Mad Men wear… wow.ReplyDelete
LOL! I got a good giggle out of that last photo. Flop cats are a side effect of summer.ReplyDelete
