OOTD :: of starry night and stripes





Oh, ’tis a luvverly outfit today, my friends!

The happiness factor is through the roof with this one!

Because stripes on stripes. And a Starry Night tie. And a perfectly tied Windsor knot. And monochromatic blues all over the place. And a fab blazer/overcoat/trench reminiscent of 10!

Oh, and I did a passable job with painting my own nails. Which are also blue.

Yeah. I’m happy. And really, sometimes, that’s all that needs to be said.

Link up if you’re happy today too!

    Oh I DO love this!!!! So much goodness! That tie! And the 10 Trench coat!!! You look super- a cool Vincent inspired 10! I’m very annoyed with myself for recently chucking out an excellent red paisley vintage tie that I could wear for Doctor 7!!! So annoyed I did it without thinking because it had got all mangled!x

      Re your comment- well that would be an honour but I am a bit clueless over how the Blogging besties thingie works so how would it work with TT? I’m a bit technodumb but I’d be totally up for cohosting if you really wanted me to and I were able to?! What would I have to do? Would I post ideas for each Doctor or something?!x

        Well, the Blogging Besties works where the first gal wears an outfit, breaks it down into its separate components, then tasks her buddy (and the readers) to take at least one of the components into incorporate n their own outfit the following Friday. I just thought of it because you broke down the 6th Doctor’s outfit so thoroughly.

        We’d have to determine how we’d do it – would we break down each other’s outfits that were inspired by Who, or would we break down actual Who characters’ ensembles – but if you truly are interested, we can brainstorm that.

        As far as cohosting, all you’d have to do is copy/paste the linkie code I’d send you. And since you’re on Blogger, your linkup will actually post on your own page rather than forcing participants to go elsewhere, the way WordPress forces my readers, so it’ll make it more accessible?

        Anyhoo, lemme know. Shoot me an email and we can chat more. 😀

      Well, if it got mangled, then perhaps it was it’s time to go…/pets gently

  5. Aww! I’m so happy that you are happy! You pull-off a tie better than anyone else I know, seriously!

    Two links this week! It feels like the old days! 😉
    You look smashing.

      Well, when the prompt calls for easy pickings from my closet, I do try to make it a week of 52 Pick-me-ups. ;p

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
