Lost and Found

IMG_6809 cropped
jacket- vintage Christian Lacroix
jumpsuit- DVF via Loehmann's
boots- Fiorentini and Baker

these were taken a couple weeks ago and i while i don't normally get dressed up for the dog park, we had a birthday party to go to right after so dressed up it had to be.  we just started taking the dogs to this little playground  up the street from my parents house that's all fenced in, so its perfect for them to run around in without the possibility of them running off, which they would totally do because they're both ADD.  the only problem with this park is that you have to hop a fence to get in because they keep it locked up on the weekends.  i've been awfully accident prone lately, so i should have known better, but anyway,  i managed to knock the stone off my cocktail ring as i was fumbling my way over the fence on the way out.  i heard it bounce off the fence and  into the tanbark somewhere, impossible to find. oh well, the upshot is that i still have the gold setting so it'll be fun choosing a new stone to set one of these days.   

p.s. i love that last pciture of roscoe.  it sums up his personality perfectly.  he looks like a wolverine cub in attack mode, don't you think?

A Lesson Learned

   wool trench- Laundry by Shelli Segal
sheath dress- 1960s Lanz Original
turtleneck- Autumn Cashmere, via Loehmann's
tights- Hue
shoes- vintage Ferrragamo
bag- Bryna Nicole, via T.J. Maxx
bird pin- vintage

i learned a painful lesson this weekend--always back up your photos!  yesterday after taking these pics i inadvertently ended up erasing all the photos on my 8 gb sd card by pressing the 'format card' button on my camera.  doh!  all my photos from the last 9 months, gone with the click of a button.  luckily a kind stranger overheard me re-hashing the story and she gave me the tip that most anything could be recoverd with the downloading of a simple online program.  who knew? 
at any rate, $40 later i got most of them back, with the exception of the best ones from this photo session (of course!) but i'm sure i'll be doing this jumper dress over sweater/tights combo again very soon-- it's been seriously cold lately.  anyway, here's here's to the kindness of eavesdropping strangers! :)
