Ladylike lace

I enjoyed this look today.  I first wore this skirt just after I purchased it while it was still 'winter', the jacket has made it onto my blog at least twice or maybe three times before and it's another item I don't wear that often, yet I'm usually complimented when I wear blue.  I don't seem to gravitate easily towards blue as a colour choice for myself which may be the reason why it's not a staple item in my closet for me.  Overall, I was fairly pleased with the look.  I took my photos just before bedtime and G-man still commented on getting a lipstick kiss ... lol ... although the lipstick is barely visible.

Skirt : Exact
Tank : Essense at Truworths
Jacket : Fashion Express
Shoes : Legend at Makro
Necklace : Miladys  (Did you know that Miladys is part of the Mr Price Group?)
Belt : Meltz

Did you notice, for the first time in ages my toenails are even painted.  I love them painted, but I so don't enjoy painting them myself.  Ms T used to do that for me often while she was still home.  I have tried to convince G-man and Courts to paint them for me, but to date have been totally unsuccessful.  What would a beautician charge to paint them?

Tonight we had our monthly 'sisters' dinner.  It started off grand.  The food was looking grand, until I got a third of the way into my 'chicken pocket' and found it was totally uncooked ... and then Noleen found the middle of her potate was all brown.  She about tossed her meal when she saw my raw chicken.  It's sitting in the back of my throat right now and my stomach does a little lurch every time I think of the food.  So disappointing ... at least the focaccia as a starter was really good.

Well folks, that's all from me for today ... I think I need some Eno's right about now.

'Til next time ... be Fabulous.


  1. Love the look... Arghhhh I think the pot pie would have come back up to say if I had eaten it!!! Hope you didn't pay for it!!! Look at me all American :)

    I will paint your toes when I see you again... P.S I hate painting my own toes, so the favour may have to be returned!HEHEHE...

  2. I also love to have painted toenails but HATE to do it myself. I cannot wait until I have time to have a good pedicure so that I can wear sandals.

  3. Sorry 'bout the bad meal.

    If you'll pay my airfare, I'd be happy to paint your toesies!

  4. I hope you sent back that awful meal!

    You look gorgeous. Blue is my favorite color so it doesn't matter what you wear...if it is blue you will get compliments from me. That skirt is also beautiful...I love me some lace.

    Maybe you should consider having your toenail gelled...that way they stay pretty for much longer.

  5. Great look! And yes, I knew that Miladys is part of Mr P - I deal with retailers daily in my job and you would be amazed who is connected to whom if you are not "in" in that world.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love hearing others feelings and appreciate your time. Please be honest - BUT kind.

Have a fabulous day now and I'll be coming round to visit you as soon as I can.

Thanks again, Wendy
