Hello Blogland!!! How is everyone doing out there??? This has been a sucky week in so many ways–the bombing in Boston, the horrific explosion in Texas, and of course the passing of the Diva. I wanted to find something that would lighten things up a bit. I think I’ve found it! Behold:
I was a teenager in the 70’s (class of 1977!!) and I still love 70’s fashion. Except maybe THIS:
The dress isn’t so bad but WOW that suit is craptastically fabulous!! Polyester certainly is made for PLAID!! Dig that bow-tie!
I’m finally getting my living room back together after taking half of the furniture downstairs to paint. Hopefully there will be pix this weekend! Now I’m eyeing up some of the dining room furniture. First I need to freshen up the porch furniture with a fresh coat of paint as it will be going out next week. I’m ready for warmer weather and gardening!
This will be an outfits of the week post. Here’s Tuesday’s outfit:
The shoes are black/white python and came from a company called Amerimark. (I link because I love) It was recommended by a vintage blogger as a source for vintage style shoes. They are reasonably priced, and everything comes in wide widths. Plus almost all are flat or very low heels. I brought 5 pair of cute sandals with my birthday money this year!! I’ve got my eye on several pairs of adorable maryjanes for next winter. The clothing is …gag…Alfred Dunner little old lady crap but if you wear wide widths and need flat cute shoes at a great price I can highly recommend them!!
I was going all tropical on Wednesday!! I made the skirt from a bit of remnant fabric. I realized after I took the pix that I needed to take it up in the waist a bit as it was drooping in the front!!
Here’s a close-up with a really cute accessory!!! MrBill has a look that says “Please tell me this picture taking will not involve dressing ME up!!!!”
Today I decided to dress easy with a dress. I really need more non-maxi dresses in my wardrobe!!
You’ve probably noticed you weren’t blinded by the glow of my lily-white legs. I am sporting some Hanes nude sheer hose. I won’t go bare-leg until it’s warmer and I’m wearing sandals. Bella at Citizen Rosebud recently posted a great article about wearing nude hose HERE!!
I took MrBill a little walk around the block earlier. We are on a weight loss program-he needs to lose 2-3 lbs. It was SLOW going. He needed to sniff and pee on everything vertical. I’m surprised he’s not dehydrated!! It pooped him out–he’s laying under the sewing table sound asleep snoring away!!!
I’m glad this is my 3 day weekend!!! I have so much to do–get the living room back in order, paint the porch furniture, do some transplanting, go to the thrift stores in town!!!
I’ll be back on Sunday!!1 Everyone have a fabulous weekend!! And if you have them-hug your pets really hard!!
