In the cage again

Are you lookin' at me? Are you LOOKIN' AT ME?!


For Patti's Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style, and for Bella's Shoe Shine at The Citizen Rosebud and Jane's Shiny T Tuesday at Flight-Platform Living when they go live tomorrow. 
  • black velvet midi opera coat, thrifted
  • Simpsons-Sears '60s dress, thrifted
  • tights and tights and socks, retail
  • boots, old as the hills, retails
  • black dickie, also old as the hills, forget where I got it, retail
  • belt, thrifted
  • magic loupe, from O
In that last photo, I had to boost the light to show those boots, but the coat is midnight velvet with a satiny black lining. Swish.

  5. What a gorgeous coat! I love the patterned tights too. I really need to get some but I haven't even branched out into colour yet. Maybe I could just draw on my bare legs with my sharpies.
