Photo heavy post. FYI.
I hope everyone had a nice week. Mine was busy, and generally uninteresting, but I'm at the age where boring is just fine. We're still getting freeze warnings so I haven't finished planting out the garden but hopefully the next couple weeks will warm up. The state arboretum plant sale is coming up in two weeks-a sure sign of spring around here. Meanwhile, I've been harvesting pea shoots and spinach like mad.

Crewel work tote bag-New Life Thrift
Liz Claiborne belt-Goodwill
Fragrance-Eau de Gaga #1 (much nicer than you'd expect. Lots of lime and violet)
I don't know why they call this a handicapped space-there's nowhere to park myself except next to a row of carriages/carts/trolleys/baskets (or whatever the hell they call them where you live). Someone thoughtfully placed a construction cone on the sidewalk for leaning against, so that's what I did. When you snap silly photos outside a liquor store on a buyt Saturday afternoon you get some laughs. It didn't help that the boys were jumping around with their hands in the air making monster noises.
Have I got a match? Sure.
Those lavender tights weren't going to wear themselves and it was breaking my heart seeing then sitting neglected rolled up in a ball. That scooter dress? Going away. By the end of the day I was exhausted from unzipping and taking the whole thing off just to pee. Some clothes are worth a struggle (like a great jumpsuit) but this dress, cute as it is has worn out the welcome in my wardrobe.
Vintage 60's scooter dress-Thrift World
1980's Purple Marty Gutmacher jacket (part of a suit)-Goodwill
Long white necklaces-mum's

I enjoyed that purple. Know what? It's a beautiful day, Let's Play Two!
1980's cotton shirt dress-Goodwill
Handbag with matching change purse-New Life Thrift
Vintage Naturalizer shoes-Sequels
Flower-Tiff and Tam
Early 80's Dior necklace and earrings set-Marshall Field's (It was an impulse buy, but I still have it so I guess maybe it was kind of worth the too-much money I spent on it)
Fragrance-vintage Coty L'Origan (You thought I'd go for Guerlain Purple Fasntasy, didn't you... but I hated that one so much I gave it away. Could have done Bvlgari Omnia Amethyst, I suppose).
I'm keeping the words short and sweet tonight as all I hear in my brain is, "Blah blah blah gin blah blah, gin blah blah weekend lie down blah blah gin blah blah." Or something like that.
Do you wear purple? Any favourite colour combinations you'd like to share?
