In the meantime, I apparently got rid of ALL my tights in The Great Purge of 2011. This burgundy pair is the only pair I have. The fleece-lined tights are black, so those will come in handy, but I would love to get some more colors.
And yes, I know. I've worn this jacket in 3 of the last 4 outfits I've posted. But I can't help it. I like it that much. This is also another one of those outfits where maybe purple, turquoise & burgundy don't REALLY go together, but they sort of look all right together, so I wear them together.
Also, I stole this skirt from my friend V. It was in her discard pile and it is so quintessentially V that I had to rescue it, if only in case she ever wants it back. I actually have photos of her in this skirt from college.

And finally. I always seem to pose in EXACTLY the same way, every post. This morning I was trying to make things more interesting, and this skirt is so great for twirling, so I started spinning around. The only problem is that my kitchen is kind of narrow. And there's not a lot of room for spinning. Which led to the following:
Yep. I have a lovely little bruise on my hip from ramming myself into the counter. Please note that Stella looks only mildly concerned. I'm grateful I didn't make a video of this because it involved some language I'd rather my mother not think about me using. But the last time I twirled, I did get a pretty good shot.
