Wearable Wednesday Avtandil

Ok, who pissed off Ellen Burstyn?


Remember that scene in Pretty in Pink where Andi makes her prom dress out of 3 old horse blankets?


I get the matching your belt and bag, but I didn’t know about the eyeshadow and shoe lace connection. OOOOH! I can see their man berries!!


Honestly, I’m just happy to know opaque fabric still exists?!


She was a woman of many facets….none of them tasteful.


Weirdest pregnancy announcement ever.


No. This is not the droid I was looking for.

Wearable Wednesday Ria Keburia

Psst- Krissy- the tank top goes under the alpaca midi to avoid chafing!!

I miss Helena, but I’m glad Tim Burton is dating again.

Don’t feed your chia pet after midnight!

Saddest nesting doll ever!

Please explain….no. Just don’t. Just give her a spin.

Is that a tattoo of a skull wearing a butterfly mask? No fair- I’ll bet the models would have loved masks!

Is that the guy from Human League??

Simplicity 1884 goes to a book sale!

This is a ‘big fish’ story. You know the ones? The most amazing thing happened! I caught a giant mermaid and let it go- honestly- it happened- Bill Murray helped me haul it into the boat- we’re buds! I swear!

Last week was the giant amazing fabulous used book sale in Greenville and I’ve been preparing for months! Auditioning tote bags, making lists, clearing shelf space. Preparing the husband with author flash cards so he can dive when he sees a particular book.

Elizabeth George: Inspector Thomas Lynley!

It’s a book sale not for the faint of heart.

My Outfit- after much consideration, I went sleeveless. Simplicity 1884:

I’ve made this one before- its comfortable and quick- I love a pattern that has minimal front and back seams so my gaudy fabrics aren’t too diced up. I skip the bow and added a wise owl- for my smarty-pants book sale theme.

Another plus- no dangling sleeves to create drag while book shopping. I need full arm extension and rabbit punch moves!  No excess fabric for other shoppers to grab at and haul you away from the prize tomes. 3/4 tunic length so no time waisted hauling  it down over my hips after I body slam and use an old lady as a pommel horse to get to a pristine Deanna Raybourn!

Book shoppers at this sale are not those sweet sleepy book club ladies that just want to talk about Edward and Bella. These chicks are hardcore!

Hell hath no fury like a spinster with a wheelie cart defending her Janet Oake books from attack. It’s not for sissies, folks. Elbows are sharp and flying at the large print Nicholas Sparks table.
So why is this a fish story? I forgot the bleeding camera!? So only a few phone shots are available- nothing of little me looking lovely.

So you must listen to me  tell you of my battle scars- the way I hyper-extended my arm like Mrs incredible to reach the only copy of a Gore Vidal I didn’t have. The way I vaulted across the table and dive caught a Michael Connelly just as the guy with his t-shirt tucked into his sweatpants dropped it.

Well, the siege lasted 2 hours- from the time the volunteer greeted us  (in my mind he really said,’At my signal, unleash hell’) to our exit- bloodied and with spoils  rivaled only by a Mongol raiding party! This is from my phone:

Here’s Bruder- he is pretending he is me at the noir table:

He gets me. He does.

The to-read shelf is most happy now.

Wearable Wednesday Steinrohner

Ramona was a mood dresser- today was prickly.

Ellen’s aversion to plastic made her the designers least favorite model.

When it’s cold out, but still want everyone to know you’re available-

Yay! The Project Runway industrial tarp challenge!

This gives me a tropical depression.

Turn the music up, Dave- these outfits are squeaky!

Ok, so we don’t need to teach lining OR hemming anymore. Nice.

Oh, Wanda. This is not a valid statement about safe sex.

Wearable Wednesday Fendi

Be your own picnic!

The bridesmaids at the gingerbread mans wedding:

We have not been praying hard enough if this waistband is coming back. Who dropped the ball??

Mrs Patmore- the gamine years:

I want a tribble sensory trench!

Honoria does an awkward walk of shame in the Steinmarts Christmas tree skirt display area-

Well, we know what Kanya is wearing to the grocery this weekend…

Wearable Wednesday Rachel Comey

George- you and Eric start bussing tables- I’m getting threatening looks from the ladies waiting for a table-

Leather culottes sounds like a really bad euphemism to me.

I want this coat!!
Eton rethinks relaxing the dress code.

No, I forbid this to become a thing. Save this look for coffins and curtains, please.

Coming this fall- widowed sister wives move to Boca in a Golden Girls reboot you won’t want to miss!

I wish this jacket was more cropped- but it already reminds me of the bathroom signs at our local Mexican restaurant…’Gauchos’ & ‘Boleros’…..

Ok, pretend you are a melancholy charm bracelet!
