Well, it's Monday and it's nearly over. I feel like the countdown to Time Off is on, don't you?
- Cardigan - Sparkle & Fade, swap from Sarah; last seen here with dragonscale in November
- Dress - no label, consignment; last worn here (2nd outfit) in December 2017 for some shopping
- Shoes - Mini QTees, consignment, Fluevog; last seen here in October with the teddy top
- Coat (below) - Hilary Radley, thrifted; last worn here a week ago
First the tights, then the dress (yup, haven't worn this one yet this season), then the shoes, then the cardigan.
I've worn it five times including today, and first purchased it here in April 2015 for $12.00. I'm good with that - that's a great cost-per wear!
Outerwear - again, in hindsight, I should have worn a hat as it rained on the way to work. I also had to run out and get some keys cut (the things I do!) and by the end of the day, my hair was a mess.
- Fur scarf - Danier Leather, thrifted
- Gloves - Cejon, thrifted
- Cuffs - Jezebel Charms, gifts from L
- Feather ring - Fossil, thrifted
- Wood/acrylic ring - consignment
- Earrings - c. 1994, LA Express
And here we go - the photobooth pictures are up!
We're looking at YOU!
I'm all chill...lah-di-dah...
Fun photobooth pics. Hope you enjoy the holiday season and get the chance to relax.ReplyDelete
I love a photobooth at a party - they feel like good value-added. Thank you, hon - all the best to you too!Delete
Loving the photobooth pics!ReplyDelete
Today's outfit has such a great '20s vibe going on. What a nightmare those tights must be but such a shame as they're gorgeous.
I don't do rain well either - I'm fine if it's raining when I leave the house but a drowned rat if it sneaks on me unexpectedly which, after living in the UK for 52 years, I should be used to it! xxx
Thanks, Vix, me too.Delete
Aw, thank you - the tights are not that bad, but they have ruined a couple of items when I thoughtlessly washed them.
Yes! After living on the We(s)t coast for 51 years, I should know better...
mwhaha, loving your photobooth pics!. You totally Rock!ReplyDelete
And love your shoes and the burgundy tights (sorry that they're such a problematic ítem) and the fab color combo with the cardigan and coat!. Totally agree with Vix, great 20's vibe going on!
Your shoes are magnificent!
Thank you, Monica! I love funky tights!Delete
The photobooth photos are so fun and I really like your outfit, even if you aren't keeping the dress! You did get a good cost per wear on it! :)ReplyDelete
I liked the outfit too, but the dress just doesn't get worn enough to take up a hanger.Delete
You shoe collection rocks my world. And I love those pictures of you two, tell L I love those glasses!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Krysten! I will tell L!Delete
I love the tights even though they're bleedy. Great photo-booth pics!!ReplyDelete
Your hub's full beard makes him look a bit like Jeff Daniels!ReplyDelete
Love the tights.
Ha, he will love that! He's been getting a lot of "Rick Grimes" (character from Walking Dead). Thanks, Ann!Delete
Those tights! Those shoes! Absolutely divine they are. But I'm hearing you on the tights giving off colour. In my experience, this often happens with red or burgundy tights. I'm washing mine separately by hand, just in case! Your photobooth photos are superb! You're such a handsome couple! xxxReplyDelete
They weren't cheap either - I hate when fabrics bleed. Thanks so much, my dear!Delete
LOL -- I looked at that photo and thought, "Fabulous, darlings" BEFORE I saw your caption. You and L do look fabulous :)ReplyDelete
Ha, great minds, Cynthia! Thank you so much!Delete
You both look so stunning in the photo booth shots! I've heard that a rinse in white vinegar is supposed to set dye (and strip out extra soap so clothes aren't so dingy). I haven't tried it, so I can't speak from experience but it might be worth an experiment...ReplyDelete
Thank you, danae! Eh, I can't be bothered to rinse my tights - I have heard that vinegar tip works, though.Delete
Haha, lovely! And how fabulous the two of you look! BTW, I love black and rust together, very good combination! Pitty about the dress, it s a beauty!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Nancy! Eh, it's just a black dress - it's not like there's a paucity of them out there.Delete
Love the fluffy leopard coat and photo booth pics! XReplyDelete
The booth photos are darling and aren't both adorable in matching shades of silver and grey. I wish my hubbie would dress up for events. We have our annual staff party coming up this weekend and he doesn't want to go, never mind be smart. Working too hard without a break has turned him very Bah Humbug. I'll have to choose his outfit myself I think ...ReplyDelete
We never plan to match, but somehow we always do, Anna. Aw, Steve doesn't get the dress-up? Bummer.I like putting together outfits for L, but he's gotten the bug too - he's good at styling!Delete
Love the "chill" pics, actually they are all fun, what a great couple.ReplyDelete
And yes as much as I love the black dress i can relate to just being done with it even though there is nothing wrong with it.
Thanks, Lorena! Yup, it's good, but not great - it's not an inspiring piece. I know one of my friends will love it.Delete
