On a Whim

This 100 things in 1001 days may actually turn out to be the cat's meow.
I mentioned to my hubs and began listing some of my items.
We are now going to take care of a few this week end.

On a Whim - Cold Weekend Travel

We leave Friday at noon and back Monday at noon.
I'll tell you about it when I get back.

My Reed Krakoff is finally making it's debut.  It was pissed it didn't go to NYC.
It also doesn't want to wait for Vegas.  It is so needy.
So off to Chicago we go.

I'll Take Two - J Crew Review Collection Silk Lace Front Tee

Show of hands.

Who has ordered an item, item on back order, forgot about said item, ordered it again?
Well I'll be damned.  I got the same shirt, in the same size, on the same day.  Oops.

J Crew Collection Silk Lace Front Tee, size 10, dark navy green

On Model:

Collection silk lace-front tee

Come closer

I do believe it fits true to size to just a tad big.
 I know, I know, thing costs a small fortune.  I am trying to be more selective and aware of my purchases.  Hence ordering the damn thing twice.  I'll blame it on….

Look closer…

Yep, there's the silk.  It has silk arms.

Yep, there's the viscose. It's in the back.

It's in the front under the "lace".  I don't know, maybe my definition of lace is off.  I was thinking light weight.  This is a bit heavy.

Look, there it is at the neckline.  Button closure at the back.  They do give you an extra.  Good thing since I just slide this right over my head.  I can not seem to acquire the skill to button behind me.  And yes, I struggle with wiping my ass too.

Sure is purty though.  Color is spot on.  

I do really like it but am disappointed that the only silk is right where my toxic arm pits are.

Off topic…

Merry Wife of Windemere had inspired me to do 101 Things in 1001 Days.  I can only come up with fifty.  Need to dig deeper or just do surface shit like brush the dogs (trust me, this needs to be done).  Once I get my completed list (oooh, item #51…complete list) I will post.  In the mean time I will keep you informed as to when Merry Wife completes the Push Up challenge.  This I tried.  Made it to 35 then pussied out.  I did not have my Nazi daughter to crack the whip and "help" me complete.  So good luck Merry…I'm watching you.

On a Daily Basis

Although it is fun to ooh and aah over fashion magazines, catalogs, Pinterest, Polyvore, blogs, most ensembles I see and love simply do not fit in my life.

I do follow Cynthia 355 on Polyvore.  She does, for the most part, simple everyday outfits with a lot of flats...give me an hallelujah.

A Bigger Closet finally has made her point with me...Shop Your Closet!  And so I have.  This is what I have come up with in reference to Cynthia's...

Everyday Fall

Guess what?  I own everything but the middle J Crew scarf.  The jean jacket I have had for years and hardly ever wear.  The Frye mules, ditto (they are heavy for my itty bitty legs but I'm trying them again).  And purses, just too damn lazy to keep switching them out.  I know, simple but so me.
