Salutations, my friends! Another day of drama is upon us!
|Can you see my necklace up under the collar?|
I love the current trend of wearing a top under a party dress or summer dress to carry it into fall/winter. However, I'm not so excited about turtlenecks suddenly being popular again (I loathe the feeling of them choking me!) but you can do it with a blouse buttoned to the top too.
- Dress - Junior Vogue, vintage 60s, thrifted; last layered under a red cardi here in February for Valentine's Day
- Blouse - CAbi, consignment; last seen here layered under my yellow dress in September
- Shoes - Darjeeling Teapot, Fluevog, Fluemarket; last seen here with grass-green suede in September
I felt like half a million bucks in this. Why only half? This little squirmy ball of Evil might have had something to do with it.
|"Evil? Let me go, woman! I'll get right on the case!"|
They don't look like that any more. This is the third pair of shoes Vizzini has destroyed; the second pair of Fluevogs.
This morning, I discovered I'd left my closet door open and...he had eaten three loops and a good chunk of the laces. Nothing left on the whole side of one of the shoes. They aren't repairable (the entire shoe would have to be remade), so I cut all the laces and loops off.
My heart was heavy. I felt a little sick. I ranted about my Evil Cat at work. Then the shoes started feeling too big, and one developed a squeak.
Sadly, they have lost the one thing that made them really unique to me: the laces. I don't really like plain shoes, not even with the funky Teapot heel. So...I'm letting it, and them, go. I'm not mad at Vizzini (well...), and this just makes room for more shoes in my closet, right?
Oh, and Vizzini's tummy is totally fine. The laces were leather, so at least they are biodegradable!

My dad bought those earrings from Birk's on behalf of my brother and I, to give to my mom for Christmas, some time around 1974.
