Today's outfit was very popular at work - everyone loves blue!
- Blouse - Bird by Juicy Couture, thrifted; purchased here for $22.99
- Culottes - Michal Negrin, thrifted; last worn here in July 2018 with Victoria ruffles
- Shoes - Zara, consignment, Vancouver; last seen here in June with a denim top
They all work together in harmony - they "go" rather than match. I have nothing against matchy - bring it on!
These culottes are so fun - they are embellished with Swarovski crystals (really!) all along the bottom of the legs.
But they have pockets!
My beautiful Sherman set and a bigass ring.
- Necklace/earrings - vintage 60s, Sherman, thrifted
- Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
While I was cleaning up the office at the end of the day, one of my earrings popped off and made a run for it. Phew, I was glad I noticed! I have lost many clip-ons over the years - they just pop off.
Here are some detail pictures of the culottes. Michal Negrin's clothes (link here 'cause I love - enjoy if you like elaborate clothes) are beautiful and WAY out of my price range (she has a store here in Victoria).
This is the bottom of one of the legs. The design is lined up along the legs, matching perfectly.
As I was taking pictures of the culottes, I noticed that...I'd lost a button. Aw! Dang! I'll check around the office tomorrow - maybe it will turn up. Gee, after Monday's clothing ruination, I'm feeling like my clothes hate me!
Besides, I had this random crystal clip-on earring - its mate was lost at this event (here, in November 2013). It's one of those earrings that got away.
And it fit perfectly in the buttonhole. There's always a bright side.
So, L and I are getting new countertops and sink/faucet in our little galley kitchen this weekend, so for once, I am including a full shot of what I see when I leave most mornings:
|"Look how forlorn I am!"|
Those malachite green counters are so 2005, and the sink is probably original to the 1970s. Can't wait to see them gone!
This morning, I couldn't resist little Vizzini's woebegone face.
|"I'll just sit here, no cuddles for me."|
So I joined him, and he flopped right down, happily pawing at me and purring away.
|"You just stay home with me, okay?"|
A good tummy rub was had...until he noticed the camera.
|"My reputation is ruined!"|
Proof that my cat does love me!
