What to wear for yoga and shopping

THIS is what you should wear to yoga: a third eye timepiece, assorted starched jeans on your head, braids, three heads on your torso and hands for feet because in yoga they like all that contortion-y stuff.


I've been doing collages and farking around with them with pencil crayons. Feels so good. But below is one thing I wore this week, a brand-spanking-new-to-me kimono-style robe, courtesy of Suzanne. Are we allowed to say spanking? Yer darn-tootin'! You have to check out Suzanne's Etsy shop, VintageBySuzanne, if you haven't already. She is sooo good.

Note the expert squinching.


And those paisley-ish pants are cotton, thrifted of course, plus D&G velveteen-rabbit shoes, and my farked T-shirt saying Middle-aged Kitteh. Meow. Grrr.

I drew this Turnip Head a while ago, but Kitty seems to be wearing a robe similar to my new one so I wanted to share. The sleeves on mine are just like that. Kitty says, "Sweets for everyone!" Yes, I NEED SWEETS.


And another montage farkorama below for good measure, since I'm friggin' late for everything online this week and the booze at Patti's Visible Monday is gone. Pfff. As it is, I'm just scraping the barrel with Catherine at Not Dressed as Lamb, #iwillwearwhatilike

[Edit: I also posted this on Catherine's #SaturdayShareLinkUp. Kitty wanted to join. Heh. It's nice sometimes to be able to link up a non-outfit post.]

This sketch shows you what to wear for shopping. NO, in fact, it's just what it is. Nothing to do with clothes WHATSOEVER. Maybe sunglasses though. 


I like the "pet." It's a cross between a Tribble from Star Trek and Thing from The Addam's Family. Importantly, it is wearing shoes. And I like the woman's handbag, and Kitty's Secret Knock club.

So it's a short post this week. Seriously, here I am wearing THIS and here I am wearing THAT, I needed a break. Me me me do ray la ti dah. It's a song.

I hope you are all well, surviving your weather and evading hideousness in all its forms, unless it's the good kind of hideousness. 

See you again soon!!

  5. You might be fed up with outfit photos, but we aren't! You are so dufferent and creative, every outfit is a (pleasant) surprise. Like the one in this post. I am sure these 4 things you are wearing do not go together. Yet, when you present it, squint your eyes, put your hair up high, you own it. If you are not confident then you do a pretty good job faking it. So I see you in your outfit and I like it. The kimono robe is of course a splendid item. I am very much into kimonos. Love them.
    As for your art: keep it coming. I have to examine the drawings/collages in detail otherwise I miss things like a shop with the name Most Expensive haha.

    1. I love the Most Expensive shop. I can't afford anything there, but the window shopping is divine. I'll take you next time. And then we'll nip into Kitty's Secret Knock club. Heh. xox

  7. LOVE your collages! These look like so much fun to create!

    The pet is the best. I want one. Zoë would have a fit. Then she would want her own shoes.

    I think I went into that Most Expensive shop when Robert was here and we visited the Distillery District.

    The robe looks wonderful. I just knew you'd do amazing things in it. No one rocks a kimono better than you.

    bisous

    1. I love making those collages, but what a mess they make, bits of magazine ALL OVER. Did you buy something at Most Expensive?! And this robe, you know me SO WELL! It's the best. XOXO

  9. Oh clever and glorious creature!
    This outfit is heavenly and eclectic and has no shades of anything hideous, anywhere!
    Perfectly rendered, as well a your drawings and collages... I love, too, to play with editing... but am not proficient enough to do these cut and paste thingys yet.
    Your drawing is very adept, clever and fun.
    Of course you can draw. I imagine you paint too?

    High paise and sunny thoughts , you very talented lady !
    Yes, Suzanne is fabulous!
    Xx, Elle

    1. I love mucking about with scissors, glue, pencil crayons, and paint. I used to paint really big, 5' by 12', but I need a new space to work in to do that again. I make what I can, where I can. Thanks for your compliments. And yes, Suzanne is so good! xox

  10. I think the fabric of your new kimono is quite gorgeous and paisley in all of its iterations has always been a favorite pattern.
    These farking collages look fun to create, i was assigned to do one once as a therapeutic sort of tool. I was to create my childhood legacy or message. Well, who doesn't have a bit of farkle in their childhood? It was a good time and only recently thrown away.
    You rest Melanie dear. We can pick up the slackle for awhile without you. :-)Jude

    1. Hi Jude, the making process is the best bit about the collage, although it's quite messy. Did you take a photo of your collage or was it only a fleeting message?

      The robe billows fabulously as I stride down the sidewalk.

      I've got in some rest since I posted this. I feel much more refreshed. Thanks for your great comment, as always. xox

  11. YAY to the return of Turnip Head; I've missed her! The collages are just another aspect of your farking fabulousness. I love the robe, especially the kimono sleeves. I love wearing things that billow behind you as you walk.

    1. I've worn that awesome robe you gave me too, but I haven't had my camera ready for shots. Turnip Head is happy to be out again. I've been creating new adventures. The collages are a bit freaky but sometimes I like that. Heh.

  12. I love your collages - I'm almost tempted to buy a glossy fashion magazine so I can butcher it and make my own.
    The robe is splendid on you but of course, everything always is. xxx

    1. There's nothing better than butchering a fine fashion magazine. The mess is spectacular too!

  13. You are so creative! WHilst collages involving eyes and lips freak me out, I can appreciate the artistry!

    1. Yes, I admit that they are a bit freaky. O doesn't like them. I am fascinated by them. Turnip Head remains my favourite though.
