Friday Things….

Cesena Made a quick trip into Dallas today to re-stock my favorite of all t-shirts. 

The Sexuali-Tee from American Apparel.   Has anyone else tried these?  I hate the name, but the shirts are great.  They are made of viscose so they're really swingy and drapey.  They are also quite large, if you were petite, they could be worn as a dress.  I love them!  The price is great too at $34.00.  


I also picked up these cute cropped jeans at Madewell.  They are in the current Bazaar.
Cute outfit!  They are listed at $98.50, but they are on promotion right now for $69.00.  Great deal!
Also…tomorrow is my Birthday!  I don't even like to think about birthday's anymore, but what a great excuse to indulge myself.  (I'll take any excuse)  I went on E-bay this morning and purchased these incredible Martin Margiela vampire airbrushed sandals….

Happy Birthday to me!!!  Can't wait. These are so me…I had to have them.  Can anyone tell me what season these are from?
 Carol and I have been watching old episodes of the X-files, and I was definitely inspired to purchase these because of the episode where Mulder falls for the fragile vampire, not to mention the Christopher Kane Planet of the Apes printed pieces.  I love all these harsh graphic images…
Finally…my sconces are up and functional.  I had the wires run through the wall and put on a switch.  I'm really liking these.  They were perfect for my entryway.

A really tight close up…

A few other things…

The Stephen Sprouse jacket is on it's way to Ohio to an expert re-weaver to see what can be done.  I should get a verdict shortly.  I'll let you all know.

The store will be updated Sunday–so have a look.

Someone commented about men's clothes.  I wish I could, I would need a pair of male eyes to go with me on buying trips, but definitely something to think about.

And lastly–I was asked about the painting in my dining room a while back.  It's actually not a painting, but an old chalkboard from a defunct machine shop.
Sorry it took so long to reply.  I hope you all have a great weekend planned…judy

    I have the Sexuali-Tank in black and the Sexuali-Tee in white and I love them too! They drape so well and they feel nice too. Only thing was I wasn’t careful washing the tank and now there is a hole in it πŸ™
    I’ve seen those MMM shoes on Ebay and they are insane! I can’t wait to see you wear them!
    Oh and I love what you did with the sconces πŸ™‚

    love the t-shirt and pants and the shoes are fabulous….Plus… Happy B’day on sat…age is such a state of mind…look at Carine Roitfeld…considered by many to be one of the most stylist women in the world…and she is in her 50’s…the best thing to do is what you are already doing by example…aging with cool style and with a sense of fun..

    I have those same tees/tanks too. So soft and even great to sleep in. I’m a lucky girl as my husband is a t-shirt buyer & he can get them at cost.
    Happy early Birthday to you! I am a March bday too. Those MMM shoes are a great present to yourself. Looking forward to see what you pair them with.
    I absolutely love your sconces, they look fantastic! What a beautiful thing to see when you walk into someone’s home. I am also curious as too who designed your dining room chandelier? I have always admired it.

    Hi There,
    Could you tell me the name of your re-weaver. I have an AMAZING Trigere dress with a moth hole right in the front and I am too timid to take it anywhere that may make the situation worse!!
    PS – Happy Birthday.

    The Margielas are soo cool! I’d love to get a hold of the wolf shoes myself… Also those Christopher Kane dresses are very cool as well. It’s funny, because before the collection came out I thought it’d be really cool to have a shirt exactly like that but of a tarantula (because I’m scared to death of them) and other animals people are scared of to scare people with lol, and the gorilla one came out and it’s made me want a shirt like that even more. But I digress, happy early birthday! πŸ˜‰
