I'm excited to share today's outfit with you - I loved it, and got tons of positive comments on it today.
- Blouse - Topshop, thrifted; last seen here in November 2018 with brown suede and my snake belt
- Skirt - Banana Republic, consignment; purchased here (with original tags still on!) for $40.00
- Boots - Matisse, consignment; last worn here in January while cocooned in blue
- Coat (below) - Zara, gift from Dominique; last seen here in January
Although I could have gone with a white, cream or black top or sweater to pop this new-to-me sequinned miniskirt (and will probably do all of those at some point), while I was holding it up to things in my closet, I saw this green snake blouse and it clicked.
Note that the beaded snake on the blouse goes all the way over to the back. I also enjoy the full sleeves, and long, buttoned cuffs. Drama!
I noticed a nice quality detail in the skirt too: the lining is quite generous - it's cut fuller and roomier than the sequinned outer part. This lets me sit, climb stepladders, and go up and down stairs without straining the outer part. It means my skirt will last longer.
It is, however, a rather SHORT skirt. I get a kick out of this old post here from October 2010 (nine years ago!) from when I got my first ever pair of over-the-knee boots and was feeling a little "Oooh, am I too old to wear this? Is this age-appropriate" about them with a mini.
Outerwear - still chilly out there, but I did not want to sweat in that blouse, so I went with a lighter coat.
- Scarf - Dolce & Gabbana, thrifted
- Gloves - Danier Leather
- Bracelet - Whiting & Davis, vintage fair
- Amber ring - c. 1996
- Crystal/silver ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop, Florence, Italy
- Earrings - vintage fair
I always check the house in the morning for Vizzini, so that he doesn't accidentally get trapped in a closet. Today, I found him up on top of his post.
|"It would be nice if the deck door was open."|
It is too cold for that right now, bud, sorry. All I can give you is the view.
|"Oh, we're going to do this now, are we?"|
He's so cute, though! I have to pet him.
|"Well, I am rather dashing, it's true."|
He does actually like the attention.
|"Mmm...yes. You should stay home and we will have cuddles."|
Very tempting, but I had to go to work. He had to settle for scritches behind the ear.
|"I'll accept that. This time."|
My friends, I am off now to enjoy my weekend, and I'll be back with tales of adventure on Sunday. Peace!
