Spoons and snoods.


I got to wear my kitty sweater for the first time today, which just happened to match these 20s style shoes I bought at work weeks ago. I also picked up a 40s snood from a collection my boss Chris got the other day. I had never worn one before although always wanted to, even if they do remind most people of lunch ladies. I now know that slick strait hair does not get along well with le snood, so next time I'll wear it on a second day of rag curls.

It was a really beautiful day, blue skies and warm(er) weather. Maybe tomorrow will be just as nice.
On the way to work, as always, I went to the Discovery thrift shop. I refrained from buying a 40s tablecloth (I don't have a table) as pretty as it was, and spent 40 cents on some kitchen utensils instead. I've decided I'm going to collect silverware with initials or hotel names on them for married life, they seem to be the only kind I like. Sam will like them too, I'm just sure of it :)

A very cool monogramed Pedleton at work, if you haven't learned how to monogram yet, what are you waiting for? Instructions here

Haha, You best get over there and get one. She's holding them in the back, along with a pile of those deadstock bras. So odd, there's sizes like, 30 FF and 28 D. Who the heck has that size? I guess thats why they're still new.

Thanks :) You do too, I'm sure of it.

I love the sweater & skirt! I've always thought that length and cut on skirts is the most flattering.
