He doesn't fool me - look at those ears. He's totally focused on what I'm doing. Someone needs attention!
|"Unhand me, Woman!"|
I have been wanting to wear this fabulous suit again for months, but it's been too warm out.
He's not really as mortified as he looks. He's purring. Really!
Ahem! This is a fashion blog, let's get to the outfit, shall we?
This suit was part of one of the last outfits I wore with a full office, a few days before we all went into lock-down, and I bought it during one of our last true Bigass Long Weekends. So it has a few memories attached to it. Remember people?
I went with a light leopard mask today, as it toned well overall. Mom, I need a pink mask!
- Belt - Banana Republic, thrifted
- Necklace - Givenchy, vintage 80s, vintage fair
- Chain bracelet - thrifted
- Mesh/plate cuff - vintage 70s, Mom's
- Gold earrings - gift from Mom
That necklace is real Givenchy! Classy! Did you know it's pronounced zhee-VON-she? (I love Vogue's pronunciation guide, here, link 'cause I love). Only the fakes are call giv-EN-chee! Hee!
Weatherwise, we are getting smoke again from the California fires far, far to the south, but the air quality is much better this time (the smoke at higher elevations) and we've had sunny, warm days all week, and continuing into the weekend.
Our neighbourhood trees are starting to get orange on the leaves - it's not just from the sun.
Flashback: Arnold Churgin Pink Pumps
These are pretty much the Perfect Pink Pump: a great colour, they're patent leather, leather-lined, a low heel, a non-slippy sole, and I got them in at Flavour Upstairs practically brand new for $22.99 here in July 2019, so just over a year ago.
I'm showing you the back (don't worry, you'll see the dress again in a second) to demonstrate that nice low 1.5" heel. This was in August 2019.
I wore them with last year's birthday outfit in October 2019. This looked SO much better in person.
Here's this gorgeous floral dress again - it's embroidered on black lace, and is incredible in person.
An outfit that made me grumpy - also from November 2019.
I had to sneak in a wearing of this new-to-me very summery vintage top in December 2019, just after I bought it.
I wore my pretty pink shoes to Ronnie's birthday party in February.
The vintage blouse got another wearing for a Zoom call with our friends in April.
And here's the last time I wore them, also in April, to work in my empty office.
Mathy stuff: I have already worn these shoes 10 times, including the current outfit, and I've only had them just over a year. I expect this cost-per-wear to go way down, but we're at $2.30 per wear already.
And now, I will leave you with Vizzini, who hid under the duvet while the cleaners were here yesterday morning.
|"Oh, good, you found me."|
I walked to town, did my grocery shop and then walked 8 km - I was gone for nearly 2 hours. When I returned home...
|"What? I'm cosy and warm here. Go away, Woman."|
He slept there for another four hours! Oh, to be a cat!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends! I'll be back on Sunday with tales of adventure. Thank you so much for stopping by.
