Someday, I will wear the dress and coat together as the Hong Kong dressmaker intended. It is a lovely set, I'm sure the woman it was made for looked elegant in it. I'll go out on a limb, and guess she didn't wear it to play pinball.
That was Sunday, come Monday it was back to homeschooling chic, that is-skirt, blouse and cardigan.
By the time we got home, Danny was burning up with fever and had a cough. I swear, he was fine one moment, and then...not. He's had fluids, and rest but I guess what he really needs is time to recuperate. I'm lucky he isn't difficult when he's poorly-some children can really run their parents ragged. I think I was a terrible pain in the behind when I was his age. Probably caught something from the pinball game.
"Some tacky Americana for you Ma'am?"
Why yes, please!
I don't know why I like this sort of thing as much as I do, but there you have it. I'm still not likely to deck myself out in a star-spangled nationalistic display, but I do like Bald Eagles, and colonial period symbols. If I could find a purse emblazoned with the Liberty Bell, I'd probably buy it.
This bag, and the tapestry one just like it hardly get used outside the house as they hold my rolled-up tights. As great as they are for storage, sometimes an outfit demands their use, and then I have to scramble finding a place for my tights. I hate that. Anyone have a genius storage idea for tights? I'd love to hear it.
And then of course, the boots. My favourite knee socks made an appearance as well.
1980's silk blouse-Goodwill
Vintage Designer Originals (when they were still made in NH) cardigan-had it for ages
Red skirt-Thrift World
190's tooled leather belt-Goodwill reserve (everything .99 cents)
Nine West knee socks-bought in the 90's
1970's Americana bucket bag-Hand-Me-Ups
Fragrance-Jean Nate splash and body lotion (I feel so...invigourated! and I smell just like lemon curd on a scone. I don't remember it smelling this sweet, and I wouldn't buy it again, but damn it makes me want to go to the track...)
