I decided to take Friday off blogging, just to relax and centre myself a bit. L was out, I'd had a stressful week at work, and I had my final tattoo work on Saturday.

I had a few minutes before my appointment, so I popped into Footloose to see what caught my eye.
here in June.
While the black ones reminded me of hooves and looked very chunky and blocky on my feet, I feel like the acid yellow will go better with my skin tone and be a fun shoe in the summer.
It's like people don't like wedge-heeled acid yellow sneakers!
Okay, okay, here you go - here's my completed tattoo.
I LOVE the red rose.
This afternoon, Mom and I are going to see "I Think I'm Fallin'" at the Belfry Theatre, a musical play around the songs of Joni Mitchell (link). It's had good reviews (local review here), and should be a good one. We're out for dinner post-play, then home to chill with L and Vizzini after.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
I love the finished tattoo, Sheila--wonderful! Somehow the red side has a much more old-school/traditional look. It's very clean and eye-catching. The script is gorgeous, too. Kudos to Mason!ReplyDelete
Happy healing. I am pretty sore myself. I got my black shading + three red peonies and a single green leaf, just to say we did.
Thank you! I think I prefer the red side, but I like that they don't match. I'm sore today - it's quite swollen. Yowtch, yours sounds wonderful...but painful! Happy healing!Delete
Beautiful art on your arm! I love the long red? orange? dress -- looks great with that blouse. The two necklines are very flattering together.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Cynthia! The dress is a very orangey-red.Delete
Your finished tattoo looks wonderful! :)ReplyDelete
I really like your play outfit too. I have a couple of similar dresses and I'm eager to wear them again with printed shirts like you have here. When it's cooler and I'm back in the office :)
Thank you, Mica! I love layering dresses.Delete
Beautiful tattoo work! Absolutely gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Also I like wedge sneakers
Thank you, my dear! I like them too. Black was not right, so I have high hopes for the yellow.Delete
Oh my goodness - how brave are you? I don't do tattoos but what a lot of work and it does look rather lovely.ReplyDelete
Lovely outfits; I like the first one particularly, I would wear that.
As for the blue dress with a cowl; I nearly bought something similar last week but it was made of wool which was a bit hairy and it would have made itch. I was sad to leave it behind, though. Your dress looked lovely on you.
I also like the long red coloured dress with a shirt underneath - very cool. I absolutely love your new earrings!
Have a good week, Sheila.
Eh, it's just pain, Veronica - it goes away. Thank you so much! I always like when someone says they'd wear it. That dress sounds itchy - mine is a soft bamboo cotton. Happy week to you too!Delete
OMG 14 hours !!!! I would have probably fainted.ReplyDelete
That's spaced over 4 months, hon - it's only about 3+ hours per session. :)Delete
Congrats on the final flourish of the tattoo. It does look beautiful, even though it's not something I could bear myself. And I have to say that I really love the replacement wedge trainers - the colour makes all the difference this time, in fact, yes I would wear these ones too! And the other "I would wear piece" has to be that fantastic fringed jacket. Oh how I adore that blue baby! Gimme, gimme, gimme, whenever you're ready honey xReplyDelete
Thank you, Anna! I hope you like the look I did with the shoes (I'm wearing them today, couldn't wait). Ha, how did I know you would love this jacket??Delete
Beautiful tattoo and I love those lines of the poem. Have missed the other arm. Will search through your posts.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Greetje! I see you found it. :)Delete
