Happy Birthday to my dear blog little sis, Megan of MMD! We've been blog-friends for over 2 years (that's about 10 years in real time), and I wish you a very happy day and lots of presents. I barely managed to get a dress on for your celebration - I've been so busy lately...but that's no excuse! Pictures of my party attire are at the end of today's entry...it ain't pretty...you know every party has one of "those" people there! Hee hee!
First, the outfit:here (way down at the bottom). It was $34.00 and it's locally made and ethically-produced. I love supporting my local designers!
I wasn't 100% sold on it, but I got a lot of compliments from women at my work about it. It did keep me nice and snuggly warm all day - I can see it being a good layering piece over a solid like a dress (I'll have to try that). I was also able to loop it twice around my neck instead of wearing a scarf with my outerwear today. Versatile!
The sweater underneath is my cream cowl-necked one, last seen here, layered under my leather dress. It's a good layering piece, but I don't love it. It's also a bit see-through, which necessitated wearing a slip underneath my outfit (you can see a bit of the white peeking out in the first picture of this post).
The skirt is the blue knit one I last wore with my butterfly-sleeved blouse (here) and the same tights. I'm going to be very sad when these tights blow a hole! I've had them for a few years!
The booties were last worn here, with my maxi skirt and floofy florals. They were much more comfortable this time (they rubbed a bit on one ankle last time).
The stuff - on a shelf!
Capelet (Floating Gold Iceberg), sweater (Club Monaco, consignment), skirt (Belamie), shoes (Feud), necklace (I made it; the purple beads are my great-grandmother's), earrings (Plum), bracelet (Club Monaco).
Vizzini was making a nuisance of himself last night while I was outfit-planning, so I hoisted him up onto the shelf where my stuff is in the above picture:
|"I'm a cat on a mo-fo shelf!"|
|"I go up there and bite all the things!"|
|"I bite the camera string!"|
Now, here we go: MEGAN'S BIRTHDAY PARTY!
Woo woo! I gots my martini, and I put on my purty dress!
|"Whassat? The dress is by Desigual and the shoes are Vivienne Westwood - only the best for my Megan-sis!"|
An' look, here's a pretty little kitty...
Happy Birthday, Megan! I promise no lampshades, balloons or martini glasses were harmed during these photos!
