I have been hunting for flat boots to wear with my skinny jeans and newer leggings, the heavier knit ones in black.
I am happy to say that I found them!
and new to me I am taking a risk and shopping online
not something that I normally do.
I like to try things on, look them over, and check the craftmanship...
well these were given 5 stars by customers and they are leather so...
I have ordered them
fingers crossed they will not disappoint.
They are on their way...
I'll let you know what the verdict is when I put them on.
Mother, my sister and I went for lunch this week
something that we are doing more often
it's such a lovely relaxed way to get to visit mother.
We choose somewhere quiet
with a view.
The resaturant had an ocean view
and we managed to sit at a window
we watched the boats at moorage
and people dock walking.
I ate the most delightful portobello mushroom stuffed with artichoke and crab and served with a tossed green salad and a light vinagrette.
After lunch my sister wanted to check out a new store and we ended up shopping!
We three are drawn to shopping when we are together...
Mother encourages us to buy a treat whenever she is around.
I think it harkens back to the days when she chose our clothes
she still gives us the nod if she likes how we look when we emerge from the fitting room.
I have been a rebel on occasion and bought something on which she gave the thumbs down
but usually she is right.
She knows fashion
has a keen eye
and dresses herself in classic clothing always with a current edge.
She never fails to charm the salesclerks and holds court in the shop!
This tunic top got the the nod
and a smile.
Camel coloured knit top which I plan to wear with my leggings and skinny jeans
It is a great weight skims the body and is cozy and warm.
they are a newer line
being carried by the boutique
priced at under $100
which I quite like!
I've seen a lot of zippers on LBD's
and tops this season
sewn on the outside
My home ec teacher would not have tolerated this back in the late 60's!
I do not sew clothing
I can do curtains, pillows and duvet covers...
all straight lines.
I had to rip out so many of my projects in school
zips that were askew
Mother was a fabulous seamstress
she made my sister and I matching dresses
with the remnants from the dresses that she created for herself
I remember one year she made a long velvet skirt
and purchased a silver sequinned sleeveless shell
to wear with it for the Christmas holidays
such "Glam" our family had never seen!
I recall thinking how fabulous she looked
well I am delighted to say
I give her the nod
she still looks great!
