Elementary my dear Watson...


Today I guess I'm channeling Sherlock Holmes. I feel the look is not quite complete without a pipe though...

This morning I headed over to Twila Jean's for a great day of cookie making and laughing at things children say. The weather was so nice we even got to walk to the grocery market :)

In the evening Sam swept me away to Portland, where we window shopped at Pioneer Place (J. Crew had an AMAZING pair of navy, side zip, cigarette pants, so perfect). For dinner we ate at our favorite restaurant Henrey's Tavern built in the old Weinhard brewery.
After, we stopped by Powell's Books to get the second book in a series I'm reading The Mysterious Benedict Society. Can't wait to get started on it!

Incase you're wondering that neon light picture is me standing in front of the crazy awesome Louis Vuitton window display.

Last but not least we went to the photobooth at the Ace Hotel where I made sure Sam did not make the same face as last time.

Your outfit is darling! I love that coat

Tante Patent said...

Great look, I love Sherlock
Holmes!(and the fabulous actor Jeremy Brett portraying him) Holmes never said 'elementary my dear Watson' though...

Forget dear old Holmes....THIS is how Irene Adler would dress! LOVE it!

Tante Patent said...

You're wrong there FrivolousFlapper! Irene and Holmes lived in the late Victorian era. Here she is:

I love Sherlock Holmes! I own all the literature, great reading for lazy, cold evenings. And I have to agree with everyone that your trench is beautiful!

Tante Patent, he did in a very old film, which popularized the phrase in the U.S.

Mel said...

Haha love your Sherlock Holmes look!

Courtney said...

Wow. Great outfit, as always.

Awww, he looks so cute with glasses. I'm sure he doesn't want to hear that though. lol

On a seperate note, I can't wait to see the Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey, Jr.! Yum.

I love your blog. I check it regularly but have never commented before. I wish I could pull off vintage clothes the way you do. I am trying to wear more high waist-ed clothes but it takes some getting used to.

Anyway, thanks for making a great blog. Keep up to good (great) work.

You found that fabulously gorgeous coat at a garage sale?!?! You lucky, lucky thing, I am jealous. I never find anything vintage at garage sales that doesn't have ginormous 80s shoulder pads of doom.

sarah said...

You look so nice in tartan! What a fantastic outfit, right down to those boots. I just love Sherlock Holmes - I'm know I'm such a nerd, but I never miss it when the Jeremy Brett version is on PBS!

Amanda said...

Love the outfit - you look like you should be out on the English moors! And, you and Sam look fantastic in the photo booth pictures. If someone found those in an old shoebox that'd for sure think that it was from the 40s. What a cute couple.

You are too cute! (And by the way, I also loved "The Mysterious Benedict Society").
