    Sorry I can't stick with three! I'm too high-
    maintenance for that.

    Breton tops
    Slim black jeans
    Short, black boots with a small heel
    Long, cardigans
    Pencil skirts
    Immaculate hair and nails ( not always achievable!)
    Subtle, carefully-applied make-up.
    Matching underwear (in case I end up in A and E, as my dear Mum
    would say!!)
    A wonderful perfume

    I think I'll bring some variety to this thread.
    As for today:
    * Messy hair, totally wash&go style; at least I keep them clean
    * Slightly chipped nail polish; at least it matches my hair colour
    * All those festival bracelets that live on my wrist for years and years and years; at least they smell like spices and not like unwashed cloth (I wash them when I shower and they tend to soak in some of my SOTD)
    * Only mascara for make up; there could be some eyeliner or even some nude eyeshadow were I not in a hurry, but not today. Lipsticks and powder are for big occasions only.

    I am a trash queen.
    Courtney Love would be proud of me.
    Now you know.

    Were I in a better mood, I'd say something about my shiny boots of leather, plaid scarfs, leather jackets or perfectly fitting jeans, or my brass artisanal jewelry, or just anything else to redeem myself a bit, but today I just wanted to make you feel better about yourselves

    Three things

    1- Always have at least the looks,dress code and good manners of Sergei Shoigu’s daughter
    2- The ability to have in depth conversation with Oleg Desprinka/Socrates Kokkalis
    3- Remember where you came from and keep in mind the poise, intelligence and taste of Marie Vergottis

    No pics, but sticking to my earlier theme: Today it is a green Donegal tweed jacket by McGee in Ireland, Robert Talbot pocket square (paisley pattern of green, gold, rust and navy) and Bentley fragrance. Oh, and--as it is waistcoat Wednesday and bloody cold in So Cal (for us)--a navy blue wool serge waistcoat. Love the extra pockets. Jeans and Chelsea boots. Tomorrow a full blown suit and tie.....

    Frequently,

    Always,

    a Courierware messenger bag, one of three (I bike/bus most everywhere)

    sleek Euro eyewear—bifocals these days—a pair by Etnia for desk work and a pair from Prodesign with Transitions™ lenses for out-and-about.

    And, of course, a killer SoTD!

    Those shoes look great. I have a pair of Naot Mary Janes as well, different model, and Naot sandals. They are all great walking shoes.

    I used to smoke from an extra-long cigarette holder back in the day......

    Sight: My long, auburn-dyed hair. Sound: My clinking-clanking jewelry. Smell: My scent. My vibe is my mood. I can project it well.

    It can be said that my best accessory is my sweet lil’ doggy.
