Church and craft fair

Yesterday I went to church, out to lunch with the fam, and then to a quilt show and arts and craft fair. There's so much gorgeous jewelry and hair accesories at the local craft fair that I always like to dress with those pieces in mind so I won't be tempted to buy too much more! This was the first time I'd worn this fascinator - I bought the supplies with this dress in mind! The dress is a twenty-one thrifted piece, and I really like it. I also love that in cold weather I have a reason to wear my nude fishnets more often - seriously, they are a million times more comfortable and stylish than pantyhose! The necklace is a tiger's eye strand doubled and twisted, and I added my faux suede purse and platforms to complete the outfit. (I will admit I took lower heels for walking through the fair.)

casual day

Usually when I go out I'm kind of dressy, either for work or for church... but yesterday my son was home from school sick and then I had to take my daughter to her violin lesson so I ended up out and about in jeans, a t-shirt, and my retro glasses - I got these frames from Zenni Optical and I love them - zoom in on the picture to see a closer view, I added the crystals myself. This retro-styled t-shirt was from a thrift store, and the jeans are the Faded Glory jeans I nearly overlooked in my snobbish search for jeans a couple weeks ago. Looking at this picture, I think I have an hourglass figure that won't stop! Seriously, jeans and a tee end up looking pretty va-va-voom on me when I'm curvier like I am now!
