Tangerine with a Spot of Leopard

Finished a pair of re-modeled capris just in time for my birthday brunch.  Yesterday my true love and I walked to the nearby m. henrietta's for a scrumptious brunch in Chicago's record-setting 100+ degree weather.

I thought I was very cool in my outfit, but actually withered completely by the time we walked home again in all that heat.  It took just hours in our single room air conditioning to recover.

Later that night was the Sewing Rebellion

where I offered to bring ice cold margaritas to participants as an incentive to get on out and over for some happy hour mending/ sewing.  A good time was had by all, needless to say.  More, later in another post.  You can see my birthday outfit on the clothes collage page, "Tangerine Dream."


  1. Happy Birthday! What a fabulous outfit you created for the occasion. Tangerine and leopard couldn't be more celebratory!

    1. Thank you! I'm looking forward to many more, especially now that I've been touched by the grace, style and inspiration you, and all the other advanced style woman, have bestowed upon us. Yes, Cheers to the Crone Years!!
