Not a big fan of guilt trip "holidays" , so here's an outfit post!!
I took this after work, as I've been having a hard time getting the light in the house right. It's been either to dark, to bright or just plain hot mess. A coat from the 80's.
It wraps across the front, has a snap at the shoulder pad, then the other side hooks at the other shoulder. It does not have a lining. I love the color.
It was made in France. MTW found it at Buffalo Exchange in San Francisco about 15 years ago and gave it to me as a gift. It reminded her of me.
It was a 2 sweater day, so I'm wearing a purple funnel neck Anne Klein sweater bought at Dillard's (on sale) and a funky cardigan I knitted.
Here's a better look at the sweaters. Yes, that's a cheap plastic swizzle stick holding the sweater closed.
Token shot of the living room. Because I'm nosy and so are you. Both the living room and dining room have strange walls. The wall where the table is sitting is on the diagonal , the wall behind the blue chair goes north and south, the wall behind the wooden chair goes east and west. The dining room does the same thing on the other side of the house. I've never seen that before.
The wooden arm chair was found at a church sale in the mid-80's, I think it cost $4. It has ugly yellow vinyl on the 2 cushions, which I've recovered with scrape fabric. The 2 green pillows are thrifted. The gold table was from a yard sale, it wasn't gold when I got it. Underneath is a basket turned cat bed, also from a yard sale. The blue chair was free from a friend, and has been in need of recovering for years, It's (badly) covered with throws after being used as a giant cat scratch post. The rug's from ebay. The lamp and curtains were bought new.
The year has been a bit of a whirlwind. The forth show that I've worked on opens next Thursday. And I promise to post about how to turn a modern suit into a Regency costume. I think we've done that to 4-5 suits. It should be interesting, so stay tuned.
