We’re currently in Norfolk, Virginia, where my friends Lauren and John live. Even though I should be sleeping, I decided to take advantage of the hotel’s free wifi and update my blog, while watching I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched. I have my priorities in order, obviously. Miku keeps looking at me with this sleepy gaze, visually pleading with me to go to sleep. She’s a little dependent.
Bobby surprised me with these lovely shoes that I was eyeing. I was waiting for them to go on sale, and when they did, he ordered them for me! I later found out that he and Kim had a wee scuffle, because she wanted to get them for me. I’m a lucky gal! They’re surprisingly comfortable…although I ended up changing into boots later in the day, for running errands. Since I only brought three pairs of shoes with me, I’ll probably be wearing them quite a bit on this trip.
vintage beret – thrifted
vintage, double-breasted sweater coat – thrifted and altered to fit (washed to shrink the wool and took the sleeves and body in)
bow blouse – thrifted and altered (took up the shoulder seam/removed shoulder pads, made short sleeves)
plaid skirt – thrifted and altered to fit/shortened
grey tights – h&m
grey heels – jeffrey campbell; a gift from Bobby!
vintage purse – gift from my little sister, Tessa
Speaking of Bewitched, I really resent the Darrin replacement. When I was younger, I had a weird crush on Darrin number one (Dick York) and never got over them replacing him with the other Dick, even if it did happen before I was born (don’t ever look up the reason for his replacement; it’s depressing). I was an odd kid. I also loved the professor on Gilligan’s Island and Tony Nelson on I Dream of Jeannie. I watched a lot of Nick at Nite. Did you have any weird crushes, when you were younger?
