In typical Wild as a Mink fashion....
my weekend involved friends, beers, and being lazy.
Saturday, October 17th:
Attempting to "Raise the Roof" @ my ill-fated dance party...
*Black velvet vintage jacket-Sassoon (bought at a vintage store in Kalamazoo, MI)
*Black chiffon beaded necklace-Forever 21
*Black floral print mini dress-H&M
*Black opaque tights-HUE
*Black peep-toe booties-Steve Madden
*Black vintage patent leather purse-Thrift Store
-Wow, Black, Black, Black.....black, black, black! There seems to be a lack of color in this outfit above. But honestly, the floral print adds a pop of color without disturbing the integrity of my fondness for Black.
Side Note: I've worn this dress before in a very similar fashion--only then, it was summer so I went sans tights.
This is what was playing on the 7-8 televisions.
Even with GNR, the Boss, Waylon Jennings, and me dancing around--it was hard to compete.
Side Note: Go Yankees--they ended up winning. Tomorrow is game 3 vs. the Angels--DIE ANGELS DIE!
The boys had already mentally checked out of the dance party--
not sure they were ever really there to begin with.
(duuuhhhhh-uhhhhhh BASEBALL! MUST WATCH BASEBALL!)
At least I had Mel,
although, she spent a good portion of the evening chattin' up her BF.
That's OK. I had a fine time going Billy Idol style and "Dancin w/Myself"
When going from normal girl, to train-wreck w/smeary make-up--
There's nothing better than the diner at this point.
Oh and look, a gulp of coffee and I'm back to my bright-eyed, bushy tailed self...
Not so much the case with BF...
Ok, so that was that....
And the "CUTE ACCESSORY OF THE DAY" award goes to:
She got this little eyeglass thingy at Michael's craft store;
and she transformed it into a nice use of the spectacles!
Yes, so it was COLD! And I could not wear this, nor should I wear this when needing to walk about 15 min just to reach said library.
But after showering, dressing, throwing together something I might not normally find myself wearing on a Sunday, I had to grin and bear the chill to get my outfit shot...
*Black bomber jacket-H&M
*Green vintage turtleneck-Thrift Store
*Blue jean shorts, DIY cut-offs-UNIQLO
*Black opaque tights-HUE (PS-I do own other tights besides just BLACK, I promise!)
*Black peep-toe booties-Steve Madden
*Black butterfly vintage belt-Thrift Store
I have to admit, I have an extreme fondness to these shoes-when paired w/black tights they make me look the tallest I could ever possibly look. I even get to be taller than BF in these, and my legs look LONG-what's not to like?
Side Note: BF says the shoes are GOTH! Ummmmm, no, I'm not in Cleveland dancing at the Chamber anymore--and even so, I wasn't even goth then, and I am not now. What is he talking about???
So back inside I came to spend the rest of my Sunday.
(No library for me, add another $0.25 to my late fee please.)
To which I stayed fully dressed just to order these fun little guys:
(is BF going to tell me these are Goth too?)
And don't judge my self-discipline either, please--
I've been talking about "Wallet-Lockdown", buying too many material possessions, etc.
Just so you know, I had one of those credit card gift cards--
so these are a bit of a birthday present.
Side Note: I've been trolling around for a pair of Docs for sometime now. I just couldn't decide what I wanted, or if I was too old to resort back to my high school wishlist. But I'm really down with this pair I found. I like the eyelet detail-it brings them one notch up from the regular Doc Martens, while still keeping them somewhat sensible (unlike, say, the bright pink patent-leather ones I also contemplated).
We'll see when they arrive--I can always return them if they aren't for me. But I'm thinking w/an outfit like I wore today...ummmmm PERFECT!
Then, it was dinnertime. BF and I decided on Sundays, we're going to try to make real meals. No more chicken fingers and tater tots--we're entering the grown up world finally.
I helped him make this delicious number:
*Broiled salmon w/breadcrumbs
*Spinach w/Parmesan Cheese
*Garlic Mashed Potatoes
(Cooking with Cocktails, I hope you're proud)
And my "CUTE ACCESSORY OF THE DAY":
The vintage butterfly belt.
(And I'm no Mariah Carey--I actually despise butterflies on grown women, but this one's ok)
Now it's time to go call pops-it was his birthday on Friday; but he must've been out on the town w/my mom. They were not home....I'll give them a ring and talk some Yankees jive and my dad will be a happy man.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
