Last Lemon, Stripes and Speckles, and Cat vs. Spider

The last day of summer! 
Appropriately yellow, yes?

  • Dress - Calvin Klein, consignment; first worn here in April for the Battle of Yellow Dresses (guess which won?)
  • Shoes - Chie Mihara; last seen here in August with full cashmere

I felt like a Disney princess in this dress, swooshing about here and there. Where are the cartoon birds?

Edit: Thank you, Lorena! Here they are:

My arms were cold all day, but I had to get another wear in of this lovely lemon yellow dress before I pack it away.

The stuff:
I'll be packing these shoes away as well. The colour is not quite right for winter - I can't picture them with dark(er) tights - so think how excited I'll be at the end of March when I remember I own these!

Silver bling:
I don't wear my obis as much as I used to, but I do still love them. It's not like they take up a lot of room either!

  • Cage cuff - Bauxo
  • Cuff - thrifted
  • Earrings - Joyce's
  • Obi - Smoking Lily

This morning I heard a noise out on the deck.
"A spider is in my territory!"
It's getting pretty chilly in the mornings now. Soon, we'll have to close off the deck - sorry, Vizzini!

He was very agitated at the spider that was just above his reach. The Gary oak trees are full of spiders (*shudder*) and they all seem to be trying to get inside. One had a web stretched across the hallway this morning!
"You should let me in the hall to investigate!"
I waved at Vizzini from the street (right where that red car is), but he was too preoccupied with the spider to notice me.


  1. What a pretty dress. I was looking for the bluebirds helping you put it on. :-)

    Your spider-story reminds me of a news account I read this week. A man was driving and got so spooked by a spider in his car, he crashed. Ouch.

  2. oooh, goodbye lovely summer - but I can't wait to see your Fall stuff. Fabulous shoes and a magnificent cat - those eyes! xox

  3. Love the yellow dress, so pretty. I'd wear those shoes all year round if I could (but they're too high for me!) Wouldn't they look good with black patterned/spotted tights? xxx

  4. Oh how pretty. Those shoes are insane. Spider season is upon us!

  5. Splendidly pretty outfit! I just love the gentle shade of lemonade-esque yellow on you, dear lady.

    Big hugs & the very happiest start of fall wishes!

  6. That dress is just so pretty - definitely a keeper! We are still having summer-like weather here this week so I'm going to give my fave summer clothing a last Hurrah before washing and packing away.

    You need to get Vizzini a little business card that says "Vizzini Pest Control"

  7. I could not agree more, you do look like a Disney Princes… check your inbox for the colourful birds..
