* A quick update on Danny. We had some good news on the nut allergy front. Although his scratch tests were positive, his blood workup came back negative-completely negative. That can happen where people get false-positives to scratch tests but turn out to be non allergic. We scheduled a food challenge for next week where they feed you small bits of nut butter to see if there is a reaction. We've had to take Danny off his antihistamines for a few weeks for all these tests and predictably, he's had a bout of allergy induced asthma. Our crazy warm weather isn't helping with all the moulds floating about. I'll call the allergist tomorrow to see if we should forge ahead, or put him back on the meds and hope for freezing cold and snow to try again later. Still, having the negative bloodwork is very good news. It isn't so much a matter of being able to eat nuts, but rather knowing he won't die if he gets one accidentally. Thank you all for your well wishes, and I'll keep you posted if and when we finally find out.
I'm back with more vintage velvet.
Vintage Act III velvet jacket and skirt-Goodwill (I think)
80's satin and lace blouse-Goodwill
Vintage hat by Patrice NY-Hand-Me-Ups
Boots- K Mart
Vintage silk skirt-Hand-Me-Ups
Vintage Cambridge Dry Goods jacket-Goodwill
Vintage hat-Thrift World
Polo neck- K Mart
Fragrance-L 'Heure Attendue, Patou
The jacket is white and silver sequins from god-knows-when (80's? 70's? ) and also very difficult to wear. Still, when the thrifting gods give you sequins, you're obligated to at least try. But not too hard, because that's not cool.
By the weekend though, the glamour was replaced with what I like to call the "Three hours of sleep look."
And that was my vintage week. The Pistols shirt is vintage early 80's (maybe '80 or '81 I can't remember) and has miraculously survived all this time. I have a few other treasured tees I'll dig out and share on the blog eventually. The skirt is polyester 70's Donkenny. The flannel shirt was purchased at Shop Ko when I was pregnant . The problem with flannel shirts is of course they only get comfortable when they are old and tattered.
I wouldn't let him send it😉
Hope you had a great weekend.
