Wearable Wednesday Krizia


8th grader rant ahead:

Ugh. I always hated those girls who half wore sweaters and jackets like they were so tiny and elfin- you suck Deborah Hagopian and Denise Mizerik! Get some shoulders-and invite me to your parties!

Giraffe crotch is my new secret insult.

Nope! My new favorite secret insult is Crusted Dickey!What exactly are we seeing? A shirt? A coat? A shirt coat? A coated shirt? An old A-Ha video shoot??I’m having some deep feelings toward this coat tho. So if she twists the knit tubetop just right- do the cheetahs connect and open a mystical bellybutton portal? I just know Rhianna is going to wear this duster to dinner with nothing else on at some point!?

‘Welcome to Dynergy! A synergistic encounter forum! Who’s ready to feel the power of retail???’

I want 5 yards of this Immediately.

I’ll just go and strain something.

I dreamed I was serving kibble in my Vogue 9293


calgonVogue 9293- a very jaunty summer pattern that screams McCall’s to me. It went together so well- so easy that it’s a darned shame that we aren’t getting along. I think it’s the vacillating front tie. Over the paunch? Under the paunch? Straddle the paunch? Look, little tie- you decide. I’ve got other fish to fry. Whats that Flawless Wanda, you don’t have a paunch? Well, Vogue says you’re easy- so take that!

9293

This is a mix of 2 fabrics that leapt at me from the closet- they may have just needed air, but I put them together anyway. A pintucked coton in a green that my liver avoids, but I just love. A striped motif challis. Lord I love challis- oh, its like my 8th grade crush- I never get over the butterflies when I see a challis sale!

2 So I’d hoped for some lovely outdoor pics and a little sun and summer atmosphere, but for some reason the dogs freaked out on eachother during supper time and I ended up feeding one on the bed- because his sisters ganged up on him while he was eating. So pictures before the evening thunderstorm are in my boudoir with me giving the stink eye to my rowdy german hounds.

Pattern thoughts:

No zipper needed for this sexy pyramid- after numerous basted try-ons, I just skipped it. I love the column feel to this, but  I can’t  help feeling like:

21836840124452p

Also, has anyone mentioned that it feels like it’s drifting backward? I have slopy shoulders, so I’m not used to that! 3

These dogs- I swear- I cannot find my inner Goddess muse with them fighting and throwing toys?! 4

Wearable Wednesday Nili Lotan


Meh. Tut, tut. Don’t try to run away- if we have to look, so do you!

Meh 2- the return of the Boots. Were these shots just for set up? Surely the real collection is on its way, right?The Big4 won’t be rushing to put a similar blouse pattern into production. It’s already been done…Point to ponder- fringe: to tuck or not to tuck-sigh- right now I’m more interested in knowing what’s in that blue bag.Will someone please take the boots away??

I wish there was something of interest in this- like a camel- yay!Meh 3- Revenge of the Bland!is is really design when it just inspires you to dig thru your closet for similar? Photo credits: Vogue.com

Wearable Wednesday Rosetta Getty


Greta subtly showed her supervisor she was WOKE by wearing her Handsmaid Tale bonnet to the staff meeting.

Allison never quite got ‘hide and seek’

‘So I had that dream again where I’m on the moors and the broccoli is telling me I have crows feet…..’ok, I kind of like this- it’s sort of post-revolution produce worker-Does anyone else remember tv fuzz? I think our regular viewing day has ended. ‘I am the ghost of decorative gravel! Do not track me onto the patio!!’ Willow was the saddest clown ever. Gees Edna- you can’t dry sheets until the fog lifts- they’ll just mildew!?I can totally see the Bingham-Carter riding a bicycle in this coat.Look, I’m all for repurposing, but a fruit roll up raincoat seems like a disaster waiting to happen. credits: Vogue.
