Hello, my friends, we are nearly at the weekend! I'm hungry and eager to get some couch time with Vizzini, so let's get this going.
- Sweater - Dalkeith, vintage 60s, thrifted; last seen here going to the dentist in January
- Skirt - Ted Baker, consignment (new with tags), Vancouver; purchased here for $47.99
- Shoes - Gentle Souls; last worn here in September 2018 with two now-gone items (I have a black skirt problem!)
- Raincoat (below) - Avoca; purchased here for $39.99
I had many compliments on the sweater - it's a gorgeous vintage piece (older than I am!) made in England (100% wool, but so soft), that fits me perfectly. It is starting to get worn out a bit, and I'll be sad when it goes to Vintage Heaven.
I loved wearing this skirt today, but one thing really annoyed me, and pencil skirts in the 1980s got this right on this length of skirt: make the slit at the back higher. It should go to about mid-thigh.
|"I'm just going to sit here and stare at the hallway door. I should go out there."|
As you can see, my regular stride is causing the skirt to pull and bunch up. As I walked to work in my Docs, it ended up at well above my knees. It was also slightly hard to do stairs and climb ladders at work. A higher slit allows you do all those things comfortably, but still keeps that nice pencil shape. Mr. Baker, you should put one of your skirts on and walk around in it - you would make a higher slit if you did!
I love the extra-long pencil shape on this, however, and overall, thumbs up.
|"You can't just going to ignore me, Woman!"|
I had to pose around Vizzini for the above two pictures. He was very grumpy with me and dashed out into the hallway when I did my stair picture.
Cuddling did not help.
|"I need to bite this immediately!"|
He also tries to bite my earrings off. He's a devil!
Outerwear - rain calls for my new raincoat! I'm all covered in pansies!
It's definitely a spring warm weather coat - it's lined in very soft cotton t-shirt fabric, which was a bit clingy on my sweater.
- Brooch - vintage fair
- Necklace/earrings - Sherman, vintage 60s, vintage fair
- Bracelet - Coro, vintage 60s, Mom's
And now, my friends, I am off to enjoy my weekend - I'll be back on Sunday with tales of adventure!
