Prior to the holidays, I had hit a bit of a dry spell on the thrift store front (a whole lot of frogs and no princes). Nothing was right. Things that fit were boring. Things with pretty fabric were cut all wrong for me. Or I loved the print but hated the fabric (polyester is not my friend.) Finally, just before leaving for California I found this great Eileen Fisher dress. It's cotton knit, has a flattering cut with a surplice bodice and the curved hemline, and is one of my favorite colors. It's still not a print but at least it's something I can pair with strong colors and shiny bakelite bangles.
It's a gloriously sunny day here which always a nice treat in January in the Pacific Northwest.
Maybe a little too sunny for good photos!
My favorite part of this outfit has got to be the mustard yellow tights and the new to me Fluevog boots. I bought them secondhand off the Fluemarket from a woman in Vancouver (WA) who was willing to meet me halfway so I didn't have to pay for shipping.
I won't be resting for long. Assuming all continues to go well with Steve's recovery, I'll be on a plane headed to Boston Monday night for a just me trip to see my family. Steve and Sam will be bachin' it here. More about that soon!
