Here's To You, Mrs. Havisham

 Cardigan, J.Crew. Shorts & blouse, Banana Republic. Beret, Joe Fresh. Gloves, vintage macrame by one of my aunts. Tights, Hue. Flats, Geox.

Even when wilted, these blue mop-head hydrangeas adorn the outside of my apartment building with just a soupcon of blue! And so I paired them with these (also decaying) macrame gloves that my aunt made before I was born. Much too old-fashioned (and rust-stained : what up with that?), they are also one of a kind and always attract the right sort of attention. You know the sort - when your look generates compliments from women as opposed to leers from men. Success!

Your comment today made me giggle...I agree...Say no to Camel Toe!

This whole fabulous outfit is a tremendous success. And I love the blue hydrangeas...not only were they my wedding flowers, I also have a bush of them outside my back door.
