Gaultier Glamour

I'm not usually a big fan of Jean Paul Gaultier--he's a little outre` for my taste--but I love the hats in his 2010 haute couture collection.

I know, I know.

Galliano isn't breaking any new ground here, and Edith Head is probably spinning like a top, but I still love the luscious elegance that is Dior.

That purple gown just sends me.

I do love mermaids.

Which is why I bought this pin on Etsy:

If it's as pretty in person as in the photo, I may go back and buy this one, too:


Static cling is the bane of my existence. I am never, ever, ever buying polyester or acrylic winter pants again, no matter how washable they are.

My Easter shoes...

...around which I will build my Easter ensemble.

Late 80's vintage, never worn. I couldn't believe it when I found them on Etsy for a steal.

I came down with bronchitis right after Christmas.

So my week and a half off wasn't the productive event that I had planned. OTOH, I did lose 7-8 pounds while I was sick, and now, building on my post-holiday momentum, I have lost 10 pounds total. It is my goal to lose 30 pounds by Easter. I already have my Easter suit and my Easter shoes (a pair of vintage red/white spectators pumps). The suit has been hanging in my closet for the last three years. I'm really hopeful that I can finally wear it this year, because it's an incredibly hot little suit that I got at Janice Ann's, and red is a good color for me.

I will just need to find a fabulous hat to go with it.
