I was excited to get this fit & flare as I loved wearing a similar dress last summer...paired with purple, as well as yellow. But I did not fall for it madly like I suspected I would...& I can't exactly pinpoint a reason. I liked the cap sleeves...despite having !shoulder pads! Hello, 1983. The eyelet fabric is charming, lovely shade of red, good length...but it was just an odd fit on my body. I enjoyed wearing it twice...then sending it back to GB. 
Booty...looking at it from this angle...there really wasn't enough shape to it...
Garage sale scores... 10 records! I looked through over 1,000 records in the garage...& there were more in the basement, but I didn't go down there because I was overwhelmed. Why didn't I go down there?! I just realized one is missing here...Ike Cole (brother of Nat King Cole)...I pulled it to bring to a wedding. The couple who were having this sale were in their 60s & so nice...she told me at one time her husband had over 10,000 records...but he lets more go each year. 
Car shopping...David had been looking for a car for me for a few months. We were seriously considering several cars from 1970 (the year I was born)...but I decided to be practical...& safer. We test drove this Volvo & Lexus...& after consulting Facebook & our trusty mechanics...decided on the Lexus. I would have preferred the Volvo...only because I don't think of myself as the type of woman who drives a Lexus...50s, upper middle class, gold & diamond tennis bracelet, frosted hair, bitchy. But it is SO comfortable & luxurious. David has named her Joan (from Mad Men). 
My poor Audi was beginning to have some exhaust issues that would have cost $4-5,000 to fix. My last 3 cars have been wagons, so I will definitely miss all that room to throw things in back...but, she had to go.
Bye, Violet...I'll miss you.
My make-up with this outfit included...NYX eyeliner in Deep Purple; Urban Decay eyeshadow in Hoodoo, Freakshow, & Laced; Sugarpill eyeshadow in Love+; NXY lipstick in Russian Roulette; UD lipstick in F-Bomb; & Peel Me a Gobi Grape nail polish from OPI.

  1. That eyelet fabric is beautiful and I love the colour too. Shoulder pads? Awesome! I actually miss them sometimes. Have a great weekend.
