Superhero Women's Day!

Today is International Women's Day! Happy IWD to all the intelligent, fierce and strong women in my life! Fresh off watching "Wonder Woman" again last night, I was inspired to get my inner superhero out there today. 
 Cape top! Space Pants! Blue suede shoes!

  • Top - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; purchased here for $10.00
  • Leather pants - Free People, Portland, OR; last seen here
  • Shoes - Feet First; last worn here
  • Coat (below) - Borgeoiis, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here

This outfit wowed the crowd today - both works loved it. I felt awesome and powerful in it.
Which was good, as I spent another full day with no phone and no computer, and I chipped my front tooth (it has been chipped and repaired before, in April 2009). I've made an appointment to get it fixed, sigh.

However, being off the computer actually allowed me to slow down a bit - have your read Anna's recent piece on mindfulness here? You should. I'll wait...go ahead. I'll just chill here in my cape and my leather Space Pants.
 It's good, isn't it? So, I'm much like Anna, and I need to slow myself down a bit, find out what's really a priority and what's not. My priority should be me.
And I should always feel as good about myself as I do today.

So, a Happy Superhero Women's Day to all of us!
 Flex your muscle, wear your Space Pants, trust your cape.

Outerwear - I had just taken a zoomed in picture of Vizzini, and didn't realize the camera was still in zoom for the timer.
Sorry. Enjoy my dim hallway.

  • Blue fedora (not seen)  - vintage, thrifted
  • Olive velvet scarf (not seen) - Dolce & Gabbana, vintage 90s, thrifted
  • Studded leather gloves - Danier Leather

The stuff:
 These shoes are close to 10 years old and I still love them. They are the perfect blue pump.

POLY bling:
 My POLY collection! It was the perfect accent to this outfit - I had many compliments and admirers of it.

  • Earrings - Lazy Suzan's
  • Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop
The rest - POLY, all found at different times/places.
  • Ring - vintage fair
  • Cuffs - both thrifted; first wear for the left one
  • Necklace - thrifted

Here's the close-up of the cat, looking balefully at me.
"We were having such nice cuddles. Come back."
 He quite liked the cape top, and kept creeping underneath it.

I realized I totally missed one of the photos from yesterday, so Extra-Bonus cat picture.
"All my best to my fans."
Aw, cuddle-meister!

  3. Oh I love the cape and gold pants together! Such good advice in your post too. Almost makes me miss my gold jeans, but then I remember I only ever wore them recently as I felt like I should and they deserved to go somewhere they are treasured instead!
