And...deep breath. I know many of you are from the USA, and are rolling into your Thanksgiving holiday - and I'm totally in! Yes, I'm Canadian through and through, but L and I are hosting a US Thanksgiving day of football, and I made a swack of chili. I'm taking two days off work (WW too!). Good times await!
I really need a break. I can just feel all the tension waiting to melt away. I basically wore an "armour outfit" and worked solid all day, just to clear the decks.
- Top - Edit by Jeanne Bekker, consignment; last seen here (3rd outfit) in January with leopard pants
- Skirt - Kay Unger, thrifted; last worn here in November 2016 with spectacular legs
- Boots - Mini Babycakes, Fleuvog; last seen here in March with double leopard and sequins
- Jacket (below) - Precis Petite; last worn here in November 2016 with olive trousers
I managed to take a ghostly close-up of my hip and arm while trying to take my stair-shot this morning.
I hold absolutely still for about 5-6 seconds while I wait for the camera timer - when it's dark in the morning, I sometimes "ghost".
The reason my camera was on zoom was that I tried to take a picture of the Castle this morning from the stairs.
|I don't see no stinkin' Castle.|
Nope, me neither! Too foggy! The fog lasted most of the day, barely burning off in the afternoon before it started getting dark again.
But to the clothes. Armour! I have many items that could be literally armour. I'm wearing pieces that are leather, one pleather/PVC, silk and wool tweed, silk and faux fur - I'm practically a walking "Game of Thrones"!
The skirt came next. Looking back at how I last wore it, I wish I'd worn those burgundy and gold tights again - I couldn't remember how high up the pattern went and wasn't sure if it would show with these boots. Of course, now I can see that they would have been...spectacular. Next time!
And here's our original inspiration, the tweed jacket (worn with the detachable faux fur collar on). It was so warm today, it worked as my outerwear!
here, but get some Kleenex first).
I wore it done up with my scarf and gloves on the way to work this morning:
Too hot! Too hot! I carried the scarf and gloves home in my bag.
- Scarf/gloves - Parkhurst
The stuff:Steampunk Expo in 2012, and first wore them in this extravagant outfit here. I like that I still have older items in my closet - although I do cycle through my clothes, the good stuff stays. There's no expiration date on style!
The scarf was the last piece of the outfit - the golds, wine and dark green helped tie the green, wine and brown of the clothes/boots together. Bonus! It's a Pierre Balmain - super klassy!
- Scarf - Pierre Balmain, thrifted
- Bracelet - Lia Sophia, thrifted
- Bangle - thrifted
- Earrings - thrifted
Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends, and a happy break to me. I will be back on Sunday with tales of adventure, including a new tattoo!
