I have been feeling unreasonably cranky all day. Dumb things happened, people were stoopid, you know, the usual. But I feel like a seething ball of rage!
- Sweater - Tatyana, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) with the picador skirt
- Dress - Diane von Furstenberg, thrifted; first worn here in September over a white shirt
- Shoes - Miista; last seen here (5th outfit) early this month with culottes
- Coat (below) - Danier, thrifted; last worn here last week
And I will not put up with a renegade piece of clothing like that. Gone.
It's still clear and crisp as a fresh apple out there - we've been so lucky!
- Scarf - Metrowear, San Francisco, 2006
- Gloves - Danier Leather
- Locket - DEFY, gift from L
- Cuff - vintage 60s, Mom's
- Earrings - thrifted
- Spinner ring - Twang & Pearl
- Feather ring - Fossil
It's been a while since I showed you my heart locket. Here it is open.
And inside, L placed two very special pictures.
Okay, I need to go cheer up and work on my Hallowe'en costume! Are you dressing up?
loved your outfit and the cut of the dress is really nice. Great color. If you loved the fabric more, I'd have suggested adding little straps or even a "clear" yoke like they do with skating dresses to hold it in place. Or there's always Mel's trick of artfully arranged suspenders clipped to hold fabric where she wants it. Still, no sense trying to make something work that really doesn't. Anyway, I think you look faaabulous, darling!ReplyDelete
I don't love the fabric that much, and I really loathe having to do extra to make an item work. I'll certainly suggest those ideas to its next owner! Thank you!Delete
It's a shame you aren't keeping this dress as it is beautiful, but I'm with you. I have no time for fussy clothing!ReplyDelete
I just picked up a strapless dress in the opshop last weekend too - you can see where the fabric has been pulled and stretched out from someone constantly readjusting it, ha! I'm having it turned into a maxi skirt as it's such a lovely print!
I hate fussy things, and this was the worst! That's a good idea! I'm not doing that with this thing, though - I'm done with it.Delete
sorry that this dress is not comfortable, because its color is such a beauty! what about suspenders, or uni-suspender as Melanie uses to wear?ReplyDelete
Lovely golden shoes, comfy&cool!, and your heart locket is absolutely fabulous and I love it!!!
There's not a tradition of costumes in Halloween here, but many children dress up actually. However, some traditional sweets (made of chestnuts or almonds) are going to be consumed! (not pumpkins everywhere, sorry!)
Maybe for the next wearer, my dear, but not for me. Thank you! Mmm...your sweets sound good!Delete
Great locket!!!!!!! I keep meaning to put my children's pics in my locket, but now I', like, I should put some hotties in there instead!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I've been a bit ragey myself----I feel it's justifiable tho lolol!!!
I'm mad at that dress, too!! Get rid of it immediately----I'm the same with stuff---I can't even look at it anymore when I'm over it!
Exactly! Why would I want family in there? Okay, maybe Vizzini, lol. I think the rage is just all pent up from me being too nice all the time. I gotta get it out! Yes, thank you for getting it: that dress must be GONE.Delete
Regardless of how it felt, the orange dress looked fabulous layered ! SO it was a good finale for it :)ReplyDelete
That dress is a gorgeous color! I have one like that, and the top is stretchy enough that I can actually wear it as a skirt with the bodice as a high waist. Would that work here?ReplyDelete
Be gone you evil orange dress! When you have such an extensive wardrobe, why would you hold onto something that enrages you like this? I too, love orange but not enough to spend all day fidgeting like that. I think if you need a splash of orange you maybe have a darling orange leather skirt to wear instead.ReplyDelete
I definitely have an orange leather jacket, but not a skirt (an egregious oversight!). Yes, I just can't handle fussy clothes - begone!Delete
