Back to work today after five whole days off (including my pre-planned stay-cation in there), and wow, was my office dead. For a few hours, there were only 4 of us there, on 3 floors.
- Dress - Essentiel Antwerp, consignment; last worn here (3rd outfit) in December 2019 with trout shoes
- Shoes - Enneagram Individualist, Fluevog; last seen here in February for my last haircut (it's going to be a while before I get another one!)
- Coat (below) - Vassali, consignment; last worn here a week ago
I had a reader/commenter request for PANK, so PANK ye shall have!
It's a lovely loose swing dress.
It has pockets! Yes!
Outerwear - it was chilly in the morning (and oh, did it ever feel early!).
If stores ever reopen, if the world ever returns to semi-normal, I'll look for a new long black coat.
I first wore it here in December 2012, and bought it here in November 2012 for $72.00. I've probably worn it at least 5-10 times per year in just over 9 years, so I'm definitely under $2.00 per wear and probably closer to $1.00 per wear. I'm completely good with that.
- Gloves - consignment
- Necklace - thrifted
- Earrings - Kate Spade, consignment; purchased here for $13.50
- Lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
I totally forgot to take a "bling" picture. D'oh! My brain was all scrambled from the stress of restocking "someone's" kitty treats after work. Mental note: go to stores mid-day!
|"But did you get me more treats, Woman??"|
I had to wait outside Bosley's Pet Food, distanced 6' apart from the other shoppers, as they were only letting in 2 people at a time. The wonderful staff got what I needed, and then I paid for it...except that all the debit machines were down!
|"Answer the question, Woman! This is important business!"|
I did, little loaf-cat. After running to the drug store to see if their ATM was working (no), or to ask if I could buy some cash (no, they said it was nation-wide, that the system was overwhelmed), I ran back to town and took some cash out at the bank (that worked). Phew! I feel frazzled!
It's a frazzly time, isn't it? I also realized that I forgot to include this close-up of me and Vizzini in my Vampire Anniversary post.
|"Woman, you need some serious purr-therapy."|
I really do! And I'll have lots of time for it, since my boss told me to stay home tomorrow and Thursday - I'll be back at work on Friday to check in on the office (I had 75 emails today to slog through).
A quick thank you to all of you who are out there reading and commenting! I really appreciate it. Stay safe, my friends.
