Hi Happy -Thursday friends! Yes, it is a RULE- one must always be happy on this day, as Friday follows close on it's (stiletto?) heels! Today I am feeling the bite of October, and am rushing to get to a restaurant to meet a friend for an early dinner. "Taxi!," I implore, as the yellow cars swish on by, with passengers smugly looking out the window peering pitifully ( or do I imagine?) at my plaid- clad self. So what does any rushed, self- respecting girl do when faced with a deadline? I go running down the street, all clippity- clop in my heeled brogues, my plaid skater skirt jostling about my smokey legs, that are very much in high gear. No photos of this moment, I will spare you that, but here I am, just before that comic moment:
The photos of the taxis hails from policker.com and shows the abundance of taxis, somewhere-- always somewhere ELSE- ready to wisk one off to one's desination. Inset is of me, in my heeled brogues from Jeffrey Campbell, and my plaid skater skirt from the children's department of Bonne Nuit in East Hampton. The manufacturer is Lily Goufrette and it is made in France with a luscious, rich plaid that a girl ( of any age) would treasure. Two close-ups: I hope that between the two you can visualize the details. My graphic cardi tee is from eBayFrance, and is made by a label poplular there called Cop Copine. Layered on top is a rich rayon velvet blazer by Tahari, and was purchased years ago at TJMaxx! The darling little top stitched bag is a thrift store find and I shelled out three little dollars for it. Brava! I am also wearing a large resin ring with an animal print handpainted beneath it from STA, Second Time Around, a group of high end Re-Sale shops in Manhattan.
Here I am sitting on a bench, glad to be resting after a hectic day of dueling tasks: currently I am Wife- Mommy of Adult children, but Still a Mommy, - Blogger -Medical consultant, Chief purchasing agent for aforementioned domicile, and Chief poop-cleaner upper ( I have a Shih-tzu).. On a more somber note I am also Nurse to my ailing father... but lets not go there today! Back to trivial adornments and fripperies of all varieties...
Around my neck I am wearing costume cross from the wholesale jewelry district downtown, and just to add some hi-low irony, I am also wearing a necklace that I designed and made which is comprised of some hefty rubies, luminous south sea pearls, saphhires, and rare green garnets. Jumbled together with this costume piece, no one would looks twice at this necklace.. Just the way I like it! Another close-up:
I hope you are currently planning a wonderful weekend. I, myself, am planning for two Thanksgiving dinners this weekend! Yes, TWO, and THIS weekend! Another story for another time? Maybe... Wishing you wellness, happiness, and perfect "closet kharma" my blogging friends! ( Don't think that new little phrase wont be used again, as I wrote it, I immediately saw it's post potential!)
