Did everyone have fun on Halloween? Here in Grundy, we postponed Halloween for weather issues. There was a tornado watch, torrential downpours, and a 40-degree temperature drop. Wimps, back in my day, we would have walked 4 miles in the snow to go trick or treating. LOL!!! Just kidding, I was thrilled that they postponed everything until Saturday night. It is supposed to be sunny and cold, but that is better than rain and tornados.
I don’t get many trick or treaters, but I am thinking about dressing up just in case we get a few. There are some new kids in the neighborhood, so I am going to go and buy treat bags for all of them and see if they come to the house. I remember when I was a child, we used to get caramel apples, popcorn balls, and all kinds of homemade cookies for Halloween. Now, unless you know the person, there is no way that you would let your child eat anything like that. It is such a shame because that is some of my favorite memories from Halloween. Does anyone still hand out homemade treats?
I hate that I didn’t get any great shots of this tweed jacket for you gurls. It is beautiful and sophisticated looking, and I love that all of the colors are neutral, you can wear this jacket with a lot of different colors. It has a zip-up front and pockets that zip also. I do like that it is machine washable, but I haven’t tried that, yet, so I don’t know how well it would work. I purchased this from Chico’s, and here is the link. BTW, I ordered a size 1 for reference, and the jacket is also on sale.
I know that the vintage fashion show is over, but I thought that you might like to see at least one more necklace and bracelet. I don’t have any idea what material the carved ovals are made from, but I am guessing wood. They are strung on the thinnest chain, so overall, this is a very lightweight necklace. The bracelet is brass and mother of pearl. I bet a lot of you have seen this type of bracelet before; they are relatively plentiful in the vintage fashion world.
The Talbot sailor jeans that I am wearing have a bootcut hem. I call them my dress jeans because they are a dark color and look nicer than my normal jeans. This pair is one that I bought in the summer, but the sailor style is not available any longer. They still have jeans that look very similar, just no buttons up the sides. I am impressed with Talbot’s clothing, they hold up great, so you get lots of wear for your money.
I haven’t done a giveaway in a long time. So, I was thinking that it is time, but I can’t think of something and I need your help. Comment something below like gift certificate, or jewelry, or R+F, etc. This could be fun, so let’s hear what you all want.
