Black and Red Mod Girl, Plus Vizzini's Lovey Face

Ah, Monday. Today was actually not too bad - I had a couple of "must do" items. 
Shockingly, I got them done! Hurrah!


  • Cardigan - Jacob, thrifted; purchased here yesterday for $9.95
  • Sweater - August Silk, consignment; last seen here in April under pink suede
  • Skirt - Current, thrifted; last worn here in May with more black
  • Shoes - Liz Claiborne, vintage store; last seen here in June with black leather

I loved this soft cardi - happy with my purchase! It's nice to wear sweaters - even thin ones - again, without sweating like crazy. It's still warm and sunny during the day, but much cooler in the mornings. I actually wore my red leather coat today!
Probably the last wearing of this mod skirt for the season - it's unlined (I'm wearing a half-slip under it today). I might keep it out, just because mod is so trendy right now, but it's a pain to have to deal with straight cotton when you have tights, boots and slips going on. I hate when clothes become high-maintenance.

The stuff:
The shoes will definitely be packed away in a couple of weeks. This is my second summer with them, and although I don't wear them a ton, I love the vintage look of them (they're modern, despite the fact that I bought them in an antique store - it's an odd store).

Shiny silver bling:
Cold weather season = tons of rings for me.

  • Cuff/earrings - Fossil, gifts from L
  • Circle ring - Nine West
  • Red coral ring - gift from Cindy
  • Pinky ring - Bauxo


I was writing yesterday's big weekend wrap-up post, when Vizzini decided to jump up on my lap. He doesn't do this very much, but it was close to his dinner-time.
"Here's the deal. Lovey eyes from me, food from you."
He's in full-on purr mode.
"I will love you even more if you feed me."
Aw, look at that face! Hee, he is down to two eyebrows on one side.

  1. Love that mod skirt - I may have had similar in my youth. And what a face - that face! I want to smooch him. xo

  2. Love the mod print on the skirt! I even love the word Mod - it definitely deserves a comeback. And your shoes are an excellent complement to the skirt.

    Vizzini's eyebrows are intriguing. Does he pluck? Is it a fashion statement? Mmmmm, maybe I'll do just one eyebrow.

  3. I know what you mean on the skirt, but i think its totally worth the hassle - it would create a marvellous fall look.

  5. Very, very lovely! You're sporting what I call my winter uniform palette - red, black and grey (sometimes with white). I literally have to remind myself to wear other hues during the coldest months of the year. It just feels natural to me for winter.

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

  6. Poor Vizzini - down to only two eyebrows, and on one side too! My eyebrows are disappearing at an alarming rate so he has my sympathy.

    I adore the pattern on that skirt - I would love to have a coat with that pattern.
