Wearable Wednesday Whyred


My Mother always hated when I’d dress up but wear my ratty casual coat with it. I believe I made this face at her when she’d mention it:

This is how I’d like a Miss Jane Marple reboot to look:

w2

Well, for all of you that wondered if you could pleat fruit leather. You can. But don’t.

w5

 

What is this? Leather? Godiva truffle liner? Does it affect her cell phone reception? Can I have a truffle?

w3

I’m worried that 45 other people came out in this outfit and it turned into a depressing flashmob.

You know you can’t say Whyred without saying ‘WHY???’

The Rescue Post!! UPDATE!!!!


monkey

Readers, I have great news. For all of you who have been clutching your pearls and hankies- wondering about the LOST JUNGLE CRUISE- I have word of their successful discovery and rescue. When  word of a stray  cruise vehicle was reported to me, I immediately sought the most well-trained jungle search party with the best knees and dispatched them forthwith!

It was a long and tense week at the Grievous Outpost, but my intrepid rescue party has returned and all cruisers are healthy and well!Here are reports from  the front line:

Resting in the infirmary and sipping a pink squirrel- if the lovely and sarcastic, Splinters & Stitches! Lekala patterns are newer to me and I know I need this one now. The crossover is quite prec’.

sarcastic

Losing Maria in the jungle would have been a major tragedy- but I hear she carried several of the party to safety and looked amazing doing it! Go see Velosewer- she made 3 trips to the jungle- I’m counting this weeks snakey Wanda, too!

grr-front-arms-up

Gabrielle definited looked tempting to the rescuers in her wrap dress- I need this pattern too.

Miushka spent her time well, reading Proust to the locals and showing off her mules- tassels! Be still my heart!!!

Cari has a peak at her SWAP swag and a daisy of a dress to show everyone once you have all met your medical clearance and returned home.

THIS JUST IN:

A canoe has been spotted by my search flamingoes and Aida and Marianne are here safe!

These two were so busy enjoying the foliage and the legendary storytelling of the local zebras that we almost left them- can you imagine??

I am here to hottly deny the rumours that I  was after Marianne stash- resting unguarded here at home. But could you blame me???? Honestly, hand on a copy of Pride and Prejudice- I’m after BOTH OF THEIR FABRIC COLLECTIONS!!

Seymour the moderate to severe plaque psoriasis skunk was only used as a spokesperson briefly. Consumers found the concept too flaky.
