Ha, Aliona! That would be fun. But I have the camera set up on a tripod now. It's more reliable and doesn't put his creaky knees to risk.
Karie, I, too, remember the days of fielding high-schoolers' opinions. My DD is the one who now pronounces on my outfits...often with a raised eyebrow. I like that you have two different avenues for experimentation.
Elly, you're right about the jewellery. Mr. Suz gave me a necklace for our anniversary, and I am wearing more anyway because I'm not wearing specs.
Loving the image of you dressing up for gallery openings. It's going to be a whole new world of fun for you after the move!
I know what you are saying about cooking. We usually share it, and then I will whip upstairs and change at the last minute. Mr. Suz is also a grill master but he wears an apron to do it. In answer to Janet, he sometimes dresses up and sometimes doesn't. His usual outfit is a bit dressier than some anyway -- he never wears jeans and almost always has on a button front shirt and in winter a nice sweater.
Janet, thank you. What a sweet thing to say. I definitely feel more secure in my style than I did a few years ago!
Thank you, smittie. I wish I were closer to 7 feet tall. Alas...
Anna, donnat -- I know, eh? It's a great dress.
Unfrumped, I really like the plaid dress, too. I might have to check it out! You enabler, you....
Lisa, you are so right about the Aritzia top. It only got two outings this summer. Here's why. I wore it on an unseasonably warm May afternoon (this pic). Then, the button fell off. I had to repair it (and kept forgetting) But meanwhile, temps dropped, and it wasn't warm enough to wear it on at least two planned occasions. Then I was away, and then there was the summer of all hell breaking loose (and I was away again, and again) -- and now it is too darn hot!! But I will probably wear it again in the next few weeks.
So much for my intended statement item this summer -- I sure didn't get much use of it. But it will have some staying power and will still work next year.
Thank you, Angie -- and have fun with little Sam!!
