Hello Blogland!! How’s everyone doing?? We are anticipating a HEATWAVE here in Western Maryland this weekend. It’s projected to get up to a balmy 55 degrees–only maybe 10-15 lower than NORMAL!!! Woo-hoo break out the sandals!!
The always fabulous Vix at Vintage Vixen is challenging those of us still stuck in WINTER to put on something summery and floaty and impractical and take a pix!! Here I am in my Vintage Floral Caftan of Awesomesness. Please ignore the goosebumps and slight blue tinge to my skin!! The Diva was shivering and grumbling so once the photo’s were done off went her frock and back on with a sweater!
Today’s Easter cards are from the 60’s and 70’s!! Notice how the images are getting more “Op-art” and colorful–they’re cute but not as “twee” as in earlier eras.
And now for the Leopard portion of our program!!! I thrifted this skirt for $2 last week. I just love the colors and LEOPARD!! I was planning on wearing it with an orange top and teal cardigan. When I was matching the skirt to a teal cardigan (I have 3 in different shades!!) I spotted the leopard cardigan and it just went perfectly with the skirt–same color family in the leopard and all. So I changed up and wore a dusty teal LandsEnd top instead!! I received a lot of compliments on the outfit!! The whole outfit is thrifted and cost about $15 total!!
Since the leopard was busy enough I went with simpler blingage in a vintage brooch and old gold hoops:
You may have noticed how “shaggy” my hair has been getting. I’ve been growing it out to its natural (silvery) color. Tomorrow I’m going to get it cut in my usual Jamie Lee Curtis pixie. My hairdresser and I think that there will be little if any “dye” hair left!! YAY!!!!
Tonite my hunka-hunka burnin’ Aussie love Keith Urban will be performing on Idol!!! He can play a mean guitar–aside from bringing the pretty!!
Everyone have a wonderful weekend and I’ll be back around Sunday!!!
