I just adore the sheer sleeves on the blouse. That's a style I'd be happy to see return. The way people run air conditioners, a little something light on the arms would be welcome on summer clothes. After trying out some different styles of late, I'm happy to be back in my polyester 70's skirts and blouses. I know what works for me. I don't mind experimenting, but in the end, the clothes I turn to when I don't want to spend too much time fiddling with, "Making it work" tend to be from the mid-late 70's, and more often than not, of are made of synthetic fibres. I have enough to do without ironing. If I have to pull out the iron, it had better be something really spectacular to be worth the effort.

1970's cloisonne clamper bracelet-Goodwill

No fragrance as I was headed to an, "Owl Thing" and didn't want the pheremones/civet/whatever, to case some flapping, screaming, shitting thing with claws to decide it likes me or something.
Speaking of insects-I haven't seen or heard any cicadas yet. We're expecting the emergence of the 17 year ones, and I was looking forward to it (because clearly, my life lacks excitement) but thus far, not a sign of them in the city. I might need to take a drive in the country to find any.
Finally, I'll share a photo of this pretty purple ring I bought at K Mart.
I hope all is well in your part of the world.
