I just wrapped up another Styling Sunday question and answer day, so if you have one, I think the box will be up until about 3am est.

Today’s questions made me realize that I am really craving a fashion style that is super dramatic and decadent to come back in style. I talked about bringing back Rococo. Not the skirts obviously, but the flounce, ribbons, flowers, embroiderery.

Those lush fabrics and jacquard. Like the balance of a crazy dramatic, and romantic top paired with some well worn jeans as a juxtaposition.

I also want to bring back the Opera Coat a la Paul Poiret.

I find myself looking for vintage/antique opera coats on a weekly basis now. But I just don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on one.

That being said, we all need an Opera Coat in our wardrobe.

What a glorious way to dress up an outfit. This is one of my favourite ones that I have seen.

Tomorrow is flu shot day, and now I am regretting making the appointment on a Monday. Not a good way to start the week, but it is too late to reschedule.

Let’s just hope it doesn’t make us feel sick. I think we were fine last year, just a sore arm.

Tom’s birthday is next weekend, and I hope his gift arrives on time. I didn’t get him anything fancy, just a sweater. A pretty ugly one at that, but one that he really likes so that is all that matters.

His bigger present is for Christmas (it comes in the original yellow Good Guys Doll store box).

That’s the shitty thing about having his, and both girls birthdays so close to Christmas is that it is super expensive and hard to divide what gifts are for birthdays and which ones are for Christmas.

It also feels like when we turned the clocks back last week it also decided to become extremely overcast, so now the lighting in my apartment is shit even though we have a wall of windows in the living room.

I hate this part of the season and miss the bright light in here. I think it is time to invest in a lamp for the corner.

My feet are also perpetually cold now, even with slippers.

  1. ugh, hope the flu shot appointment went well! i had mine on a friday, so i know what you mean about scheduling it on a particular day and how that affects the rest of your week/the start of your weekend. funny you mention lamps, i’ve been contemplating a floor lamp on amazon for an embarrassingly long amount of time. i feel like i’ve been overthinking every potential purchase lately, not sure if that’s a good or bad thing! especially with the black friday/cyber monday sales starting early this year (i feel like the holiday season has been pushed so far forward!), i don’t know if i’ll be able to actually focus on anything.

    • Thankfully none of us had side effects from the needle. The pharmacist was really good at giving them so we didn’t even have sore arms. It was so quick and efficient that my needle anxiety teen didn’t even get the chance to panic or shed a tear.

      I’ve been receiving so many Black Friday ads that I thought you guys bumped up the date of thanksgiving 😂 I have a few things that I hope to find on sale so I’m actually glad there are so many early discounts. I like to spread out the cost of this holiday when possible and I’m already really far behind. It’s kind of freaking me out. We put up the tree last night though. I was hoping to get to it earlier but every time I thought of going down to the storage room I changed my mind. It’s scary down there.
