Thanks for the comments and the good wishes. One foot in front of the other.
Tanya, I like your “playful” descriptor for the jacket much better than my son’s. As he took those pix, he told me I looked like a duck. That’s why I’m quacking up.
Robin, if you didn’t realize it was a slip, that’s perfect. Thanks for commenting.
Rachylou, so many kinds of punk! What makes this outfit punk instead of hipster, if I might ask? The lingerie and boots?
Carol and Brooklyn, good points about the length and curve of the slip.
CarolS, the close matches really seem to be taking off. Lucky me that I just built up a berry (including these cranberries) capsule a couple years ago.
Thanks Bijou. Bright colors and enjoying my city are indeed balms. Sometimes when you can’t do anything, the best thing to do is stop looking.
Sally, I’m not sure if balancing on the back of a bench counts as sporty, but I did it in a skirt. I wish you a good week too.
Thanks Kate. Who would’ve thought an orangey yellow jacket was what I needed? I guess it plays well with all the rest of my colors, and I do like the energy of a good contrast. The leopard gloves don’t quite match the cognac shoes, but they’re close enough for me to call them a complement.
Star, looking forward to your plaid & checks combo. Glad the slip didn’t jump out at you as out of place.
Brooklyn, ok, you can have the shirt back as soon as I wash it—but you have to post your outfit. You’re the queen of pattern mixes and metallics, so I’m looking forward to what you do with it next.
Thank you all for the positive comments and support. I saw no mention of wear on the red puffer; I think it’s in good shape, but sometimes I miss stuff so I wanted to check. I almost didn’t post the black outfit, because it’s kinda “putting clothes on my body” rather than “getting dressed”. The muted response confirms that overall black, even with some white near my face, is not my thing. I wish you all a bright and happy week.
