I'm sick. Had the fever, the chills, now the coughing and the hacking and the blah. As I said to people at work today, "I'm 99% sunshine, 1% cranky." Yeah, I went to work today. I shouldn't have, but I did - too much to do!
I managed to last 3 hours yesterday, and thought I'd be okay until suddenly it felt like a truck hit me.
I had to wear the Smoking Lily cape as a skirt again (here it is last time), this time with the point at the back, so it's like a fish tail wiggling when I walk. So fun!
I like the way the purple suede vest (last seen here) plays off the pink and brown of the plaid, accentuated by the matching (matchy! whee!) tights. And of course, the cape/skirt is lined with dark purple satin!
here, as were the lavender booties.

After sleeping all day yesterday, I figuratively girded my loins, took some cold medication (ooh, the velvet tunnel) and went to work today. And went to my WW meeting tonight - it was predictably entertaining. I lost my train of thought several times - but my group knows me pretty well, and they get my whackadoodleness (that should totally be a word).
here), another excellent layering piece. It was also an extra layer of warmth under the skirt.
The ribbon skirt is such a marvel, isn't it? I have only worn it the one time previously this month (here, with lots of olive), but it's a keeper.
here when I foolishly exposed my bare arms in winter.

Holy smokes, you guys, can you believe I only have 2 more days left in this challenge? That's crazy! What the heck am I going to wear on Friday?
Special shout-outs to Marianne, who wrote about me here (thank you!) and to Patti, for missing "Visible Monday" at Not Dead Yet Style (but I'm sneaking in at the end, heh heh). You guys rock!
