Another sentence....

Just to prove it wasn't a fluke, I made another tee shirt outfit.
Since it's cold and I didn't want to cover the design, I donned my cashmere fingerless gloves. It was actually WAY cold but I am practicing for Spring...

My new Dino bone cuff from Noir was actually the reason for the's sooo good. It's inspired by Disney's Fantasia. I think it could double as a weapon if someone tried to steal my Louis bag as well, so double duty!

The Slimane 68 shirt is the genius of Les Plus Dores, who makes shirts with the designer's birth year as the "team" number. SO clever. I shall wear it to a Super Bowl party, if I go to one...

My Louis speedy bag is a vintage find scored from Ebay long ago. It was my first great win, as I pounced on it at the last minute with my two-screen, it's not patented, but YES it works! It's made in France, not US, which for LV is rad. I buy American.....except for my designer goodies.

The heart necklace is made of marble & super heavy. I can't even remember who made it, but it came from Tuni, so it's gotta be good!

And the best long skirt ever, Comme des Garcons taffeta tulip. It fits almost like trousers....divine.

Life is dangerous, that is why there is a machine gun down my leg

Actually no, I just saw these and loved them. I have no idea why I am drawn to guns and knives and bones and dead animals. I am a happy normal person. But I love this imagery.
Go figure. I got a lot of stares today in the Met, and the guard thought it was a tattoo.
I told him, no, that would be my sister.

Something borrowed & blue! No, thank God I'm not getting married again, it's just I borrowed a blue jacket from my hairdresser, and it came out.

Tights from China (where else?)

Great tee, but use it in an Outfit....

I remember in English class being given a word and told to "Use it in a sentence."
This gave it meaning and context.
My goal with my new collection of graphic tees (found thanks to Mitch's online diligence) is to use them in a sentence ie: an outfit, to give them meaning.
Throwing a fab tee on with jeans is fine, but I really want to work them in with my designer pieces to give an outfit a little more "thrown together" look.
Of course in winter, my go-to is brightly colored tights to give a pop to the drabness around me.

Match made in heaven....

I saw this Moncler jacket on the street.
