Time to break out some boots!
- Wool jacket - Gap, consignment, Vancouver; last worn here in July over a blue jammy dress
- Top - INC, thrifted; last seen here in August under my optic cardigan
- Skirt - All Saints, pass-along from Dominique; last worn here in September 2020 (Flashback there too)
- Boots - BCBG Max Azria; last seen here (2nd outfit) for brunch in June
I have never worn this moto jacket with it - that feels like an oversight.
Isn't the jacket a glorious colour?
We drove out to Floyd's Diner for brunch, for a little nostalgia (yum, the 420 Benny is my fave), and to let Vlad the Jag enjoy the highway.
Zipped up - this jacket has always been a titch snug (it's an XS), but I don't mind.
- Purse - Danier Leather, thrifted; purchased here for $24.95
The bag was excellent.
- Mask - by Mom
- Umbrella - Cheeky
- Belt - gift from Ruth
- Brooch - thrifted
- Silver/onyx ring - Toccara, vintage fair
- Silver/crystal ring - Soul Flower
- Silver earrings - Israel, consignment
After brunch, I sat on the deck as the rain pattered down on the glass roof, with music playing and L reading/being a nap station for Vizzini, and started a new section on my Snake Jacket Art Project (I finished the back section here last weekend, if you missed it).
Snake Jacket Art Project: Sleeves, Part I
I followed the same process as I did with the back panel - once you have a routine that works, stick to it! I have my inspiration picture ready, and started with the left sleeve, since the sideways skull is facing towards the front of the jacket. I will have to flip that picture and reprint it for the other sleeve.
I did very thin lines for the basic skull shapes, leaving some lines open, then erased the sketchy grey outlines with a damp paper towel.
Filling in more lines - you can see on the upper right forehead of the top skull that I made it too big and bulgy, so I just drew the rose over that line.
This is a much smaller area than the back, so after about four hours, I've gotten all the lines in and done the shading on the skulls.
And finally, I added dark lines for shading, firmed up the outlines of the skulls, and added the pointy edges to the leaves.
L and I played boardgames on Saturday night while Vizzini kept us company.
"Hmm? I'm just sleeping off a catnip bender, Woman."
He was all wired up, attacking his mousie. And then he went floppy.
I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend full of good times, my friends!
