I actually ventured out the the door twice on Friday AND I managed to take some photos of both my outfits. Sadly I am still lacking a full length mirror so you get cut off legs...
The first outfit is one I love! The black velvet dress is a wardrobe staple that you have seen before in a couple of outfits. The golden/amber skirt was too small for a friend so she gave it to me. It is a balloon type piece, but not very fluffy. It is longer in the back than in the front and is rather ridiculously tiny in the waist. I must have gotten slightly thinner though, I remember it being a bit too tight on me. I haven't worn it much as I have found it difficult to match it with other things in my wardrobe (and a bit too tight). But now that I have found this combination I love it! It matches my amber colored key rosary necklace perfectly! :D
I wore this outfit for a trip to the library. I met the librarian (or rather library assistant) whose place I am going to take when she goes on maternity leave in about a month and we talked a bit about that. I'm going to actually have a real job in a month, a job that will be almost full time and that will last for more than a few months. This has never happened to me before. It seems the local library has decided that they like me and hopefully they will continue to supply me with part time and short term jobs until they can finally give me a permanent position.
I also borrowed some books about preserves and some other recipe books, two with cookie and cake recipes and one with soups! Then I bought beer and, finally, beer glasses! Now I have two pretty tulip shaped glasses to drink my awesome beers from! I had to try out a glass of course and the glass was good but the beer I tried was kind of "meh". It was Achel 8 Blond. Really pretty color and pretty lacy foam though! I checked ratings and reviews of it online and it is apparently a well liked and reputable beer. And I can't really find anything to complain strongly about. I just found it a bit watery, not as full-bodied as I would have liked, and I like my beers a bit sweeter and spicier than this... Aaand that concludes the beer review part of this blog post. ;)
My second outfit of the day was this one. All itmes here, except for the shirt, are wardrobe staples that I think you have seen before. The shirt is my most recent clothing find. Sometimes I find goodies where I would least expect it. This time at Gina Tricot. But I do really like the color and shape of this shirt. I always have my eyes open for clothing with a color somewhere between brown/red/pink. This one is a brownish pink that can't really be called pink... A truely indefinable color! It makes me think of blush... I was afraid that the shirt would be too ordinary, but a top hat, some forged iron jewelry and pleather pants works wonders!
Oh, and the perfume of the day was Slumberhouse Sova. I LOVE Sova!! It is my new favorite! Hay, hops, immortelle, all good and sweet without being foody! Smells a bit like a non foody curry in a decidedly good way! Talk about a full bodied and sweet scent! I think my taste in beer echoes my taste in perfume... My favorite beer (De Molen Bommen & Granaten) kind of reminds me of Sova! ;)
In conclusion, I lived through another Friday the 13th without any bad luck at all!
