What I wore today: Date night edition

So, yes, this is what I wore on Friday — not what I’m wearing right now.  Matt works four tens and since I have access to the computer all week I cede it to him when he gets home.  But sometimes he parks in front of it and stays there all weekend.  (Like I don’t do that during the week.)  So this is my first time back to the blog since Thursday.  (I need to use the post scheduler more often.)

Every Friday night is “date night”.  We don’t usually go anywhere fancy.  Sometimes — like when there’s snow — we don’t leave the house at all.  But whatever we do I like to dress up a little so it feels like an occasion.  (Even Denny’s can feel fancy when you’re wearing velvet or heels or a petticoat.)

Shirt: Banana Republic (thrifted)
Skirt: Merona (thrifted)
Tights: Legale (Fred Meyer)
Boots: Mudd (Famous Footwear years ago)
Jewelry: thrifted (see this post)
Jacket: Abercrombie & Fitch (thrifted)
Gloves: ? (antique mall)

I bought the gloves the same day because we worked our way through town on our way to dinner, doing errands and bullshitting with Frank at the gun store.  He sent us to check out a new second hand store that had some Army surplus stuff and while we were there I insisted we nip into the antique mall next door.  The gloves are in great condition and the sides are ruched above the slit.  No tag.

What I wore today

Sorry about the snooty look — I was trying to look at the camera but also tilt my head to show the doodad on the side of the hat.

Actually, this is what I wore on Friday, for “date night”.  There was also a long black Mossimo coat, but I could hear Matt putting on his boots in the other room and making loud hints about how hungry he was, so I was trying to be quick and I didn’t get a shot of that.

Vintage hat: ? (antique store)
Jewelry: ? (thrifted and restyled)
Skirt: H&M (H&M)
Cardigan: Charter Club (thrifted)
Tights: Legale (Fred Meyer)
Boots: My beloved Dr. Martens

I love that silly-ass hat.

What I wore today

Home.
Away.

I look like I should be flying out on Serenity, don’t you think?  Sort of a half Zoe, half Kaylee kind of thing.  Well, maybe 70% Kaylee 30% Zoe.

Jacket: Abercrombie & Fitch (thrift store)
Cardigan: ? (thrift store — no label)
Shirt: Staff Woman (Lahinch, Ireland)
Skirt: Kathy Ireland (Kmart, ages ago)
Belt: Linea Pelle (thrift store)
Tights: Xhilaration (Target)
Boots: Mudd (Famous Footwear, ages ago)
Leather Gloves: Anne Klein (thrift store)

Today’s pictures were taken by balancing the camera on the edge of a dresser drawer.  Better, but still not quite right.  I’ll keep trying, because for some sick reason I’m enjoying these posts, but I don’t know if they’ll become a permanent part of the “new” blog.

What I wore today: Halloween edition

I can’t see anything without my glasses and I don’t have any contacts so I’m going to tell people at the party that they are safety glasses.

Real lab coat: Fashion Seal (eBay)
Prime Cuts of Unicorn babydoll tee: ThinkGeek (gift from my brother Ryan)
Plaid mini skirt: Rampage (thrift store)
Fishnet tights and fingerless mitts: Alter Ego (thrift store)
Rings, studded bracelet, and studded collar: ? (Party City)
Boots: My beloved Dr Martens
Caf-Pow: Color print of a fanart mockup found online taped to a Burger King cup

Happy Halloween!

What I wore today

I think I need to take these pictures somewhere else.  There’s a weird (kind of suspicious, really) hump at the foot of the bed so with the camera on the footlocker I appear to be leaning back when it feels like I’m totally perpendicular.  And these stodgy poses . . . why do I look breezy in the full-length mirror on the back of the bathroom door and so awkward in front of the camera?

OK, now that that’s out of my system:

Cardigan/jacket thing: J. Crew (thrifted)
Shirt: G.H. Bass (thrifted)
Skirt: Old Navy (thrifted)
Tights: Legale (Fred Meyer)
Boots: Mudd (Famous Footwear 5 years ago)

What I wore today

Have pity on me.  I don’t mean my fashion sense — I’m pretty secure about that these days — but my photography skills.  Would you believe that this is only the second time in my life I’ve taken a selfie?  I’m sure I’ll figure it out.  (And if I don’t then you’re spared “WIWT” posts!)

Necklace: Laguna costume jewelry (inherited)
Shirt: Sonoma (Kohl’s)
Pants: Land’s End (thrifted)
Boots: My beloved Docs (Dr Martens)
Jacket: Mossimo (thrifted)
