Hello everyone! How are we holding up out there? I hope you’re finding interesting things to do with your time at home. I’ve been starting to switch out the winter wardrobe but slowly. Nebraska weather is notoriously fickle and though we are expecting 78 degrees F tomorrow, I don’t dare put away my cardigans and coats. This 70s ruffled blouse was something I bought years ago but don’t think I have shown on the blog. I’m wearing it with a side- snap vintage Sassoon skirt. My boobs definitely don’t need ruffles on them, but somehow this blouse managed to be wearable without being absurd.
I’ve discovered scunchies. It only took 30 years! That’s all this hairdo is- pulled up in elastic. There’s something to be said for ten second hairstyles! It isn’t like I have all the time in the world...well, yeah whatever 😆
Here’s the full length view of this 70s dress. It is dreadfully uncomfortable as it presses my ribcage, so once life returns to normal it will get listed for sale. It is a beautiful dress but not on me.
This dress will also be for sale eventually as it is far to large on top and I don’t have the patience to take it in. The print is very close to another in my collection so I feel less bad about letting it go.
But would you look at that beast of a bakelite bangle I’m wearing?! It is so heavy I fear injury to my wrist wearing it for too long.
I do love green for spring!
Speaking of spring🌸
This dress doesn’t get nearly enough wear, and I have no idea why. It is an 80s dress but could easily pass for 50s.
This reverse carved pendant had a first wear. I absolutely adore it.
Can’t visit Spain? Wear a stained glass window instead! I rarely wear tee shirts but this was irresistible.
Bit of vintage lingerie anyone? There are matching pajama bottoms but it is far too hot for them. The tap pants are from the 90s but look much older.
I really adore this piece.
Both the sweater and skirt are 80s. The matching necklace and earrings are Trifari I am finally getting around to wearing things I never seem to have time to put together. I suppose that’s good but I do wish it could have been better circumstances.
I won’t bang on about how the country is being run by idiots ( it is, but you already know that) but I still feel confident that we are in good hands locally. No idea how long that will last but for now I’m not panicking. I haven’t started drinking with any serious determination so I guess all is well. I’ve been living on tea and jam sandwiches because in a crisis my palette reverts to being six years old, but that’s my only obvious stress induced behaviour. I guess it could be worse.
Anyway, that’s about it for clothes last week. I did wear shorts for the first time this season today, which was exciting but probably short lived.
I hope you are managing ok where you are and can stay put as we get through this. Hang in there 💕
