Hello! My apologies for the unexpected absence - I was feeling unwell after Book Club, which escalated into very much unwell overnight, and I called in sick at work on Thursday and Friday. Things have mostly settled down to normal, although I am exhausted. More naps.

I did a bit more work on Cat's fan, but it is hot here again and I couldn't handle all the sun.

No stuff for you!
I had to pop into the WIN Boutique for a quick look around. I loved this chain necklace.
I'll replace today's red blouse with this deep orange one by Max Studio.
I was excited to luck out on two pairs of shoes. These are Ralph Lauren and were $29.50.
I was really taken with these Tod's shoes. They were $29.50 and are clearly noted as "Replicas" on the stickers.
They are all leather and suede, including all the trim and ankle straps, and the stitching around the edges of the back ankle piece is also in leather. The logo is nice and clear, and the embossed rubber logo on the sole is very crisp. The size is inside the shoe, and they're clearly marked Made in Italy.
this post (picture link) with a picture of these shoes - and there isn't a stamp on the buckle.
Best of all, they are deliciously comfortable! I can't wait to wear them. They're very "Agent Carter"!
Well, here's to a better week, health-wise. I'm going to be slammed at work tomorrow - eee, I don't even want to think about all the crap that piled up from the last 2 days...
So sorry you've been sick. Those Tod's are certainly a nice cheery-upper. Like most of us bloggers, I appear more extroverted than I actually am, so I have some anxiety too. We'll all be OK after a refreshing Mojito and shopping. I cannot wait to meet you. xoxReplyDelete
Get some rest and feel better, pal. Big weekend coming up!ReplyDelete
Oh I hope you feel better soon! At least you managed to enjoy a little bit of your weekend, that will have helped your recovery I'm sure, and prepared you a bit for the huge workload on Monday!ReplyDelete
Feel better hon! Major score on the shoes. It's always hard to authenticate things these days, but I think either way, it looks like you got a solid pair of well made shoes for a score.ReplyDelete
Love the sleepy Viz. I got my sleep bum next to me. The heat really melts the cats, huh?
Sorry for the sickness. Wishing you a quick recovery.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear that you are sick. It sucks, especially if there is nausea. I hope you feel better and have a good week until your meetup. I wanted to come, but we are having a birthday party for 2 grandsons next weekend. There's always next time (I hope)..ReplyDelete
I'm sorry you've been feeling unwell! You do the best job of looking well when you feel unwell of anyone I know. Parasols are my favourite overlooked accessory. GREAT finds. See you soon. hugs.ReplyDelete
Hope you're back on your feet again !ReplyDelete
specially after seeing your new fabulous kick ass shoes! I love them both.
Sorry to hear you were under the weather. I have had a reoccurring intestinal infection for about 10 days, so I've been feeling off myself. You look very cool and comfortable in the maxi dress, and short leopard print one.ReplyDelete
You'll have fun at the meetup but I understand the trepidation at meeting all those people at once - I'm much better one on one or in a small group.
