Okay, I'm getting my mojo back slowly, but today felt...pretty good.
- Sweater - Lord & Taylor, consignment; last seen here (2nd outfit) in April as a Rock Princess
- Pants - Tara Jarmon, consignment; last worn here in May while being Indolent
- Shoes - Joe Fresh, thrifted; purchased here on Sunday with Jodi for $8.50
|Showing a bit of my ink|
This sweater is cut like a t-shirt, and if you checked the previous wearing of it, you can see that I tucked it in then. This is actually a very thin cashmere, and I have a vintage camisole on underneath it to keep it from being see-through
Polka dots with jungle print is a YES in my book. And it follows the number one rule of pattern-mixing: one geometric pattern (polka dots) + one organic pattern (jungle) + at least one colour in common that's a neutral (white and red). I won't be keeping either the pants or the shoes out in my fall/winter wardrobe (changeover in two weekends, eeee!).
- Glass bangle - thrifted
- Glass bead necklace - vintage 60s, Mom's
- Earrings - Stella & Dot, consignment
- Turquoise/silver ring - Glee
I also felt like all that pattern business going on in the bottom half of the outfit left the top half a bit lacking, so I pulled together another colour from one of the patterns - green, also found in the jungle print of the shoes - that is also a complementary colour of the main bulk of the outfit (green is opposite of red/coral on the colour wheel).
And so I feel pretty good. It helps that I got some good ol' fashioned kitty therapy.
Vizzini roams around the house in the morning, poking his head in the bathroom and visiting me on the computer while I'm getting ready in the morning. Whenever he comes to find me, I'll always give him attention. So today, when he didn't visit me, I went looking for him.
|"What is it, I am busy!"|
He came to visit me later and we sat on the cuddle benches.
|"Mmmmm....you're not taking my picture now, are you?"|
|"No one's going to see this, right?"|
He sat on the bench watching me leave.
|"But I'm not done with our cuddling!"|
