Summertime Flowers

Vinca Dress - All Saints, ebay
Army Flats - Trippen

Well the black and white week idea failed out on day one because I wanted to wear a plaid dress. I love my cotton All Saints dresses because they're so easy and cool. I took everyone's advice for today and wore a dress with basic accessories. I don't do jewelry much at all because the humidity makes it stick to my skin. Yuck. So I took the opportunity to wear something I made!


These are two of my new v*gan buttonflowers inspired by Sage. They're made of a cotton/linen blend with recovered metal buttons as an alternative to my silk tie flowers. I now have a 'line' of non-silk buttonflowers for sale if you want/prefer that optionLynne has really utilized her purchases. She DIY'd a shirt that was in her donation pile with her buttonflowers.

Reasons I can't get over Bruce? He's so fancy. He has learned his Uncle Spike's behavior of "covering" his food dish when he's finished eating. "Dear waiter, please taketh my dish away now." It always makes me laugh so hard. He's not a black cat, but dark brown (like my shoes!), and he has black stripes. I like sleeping kittens, especially when they look like they're grinning. 

He even sleeps with a fancy paw curled

  5. Such a cute kitty. He looks so happy and relaxed in your lap. My Jetta was very dark brown too. I called her my chocolate kitty.

    That dress looks so fabulous with those shoes and the button flowers are adorable!

  7. Oh, the Trippens are awesome. I love the plaid with the flower-buttons.

    That kitten on the lap is about likely to kill me with cute. He is irresistible.

  8. At first I thought you were wearing brooches, and then I see that you are wearing your own amazing button flowers. They are awesome accessories. I should know, having worn them every day, for, like, six days straight.

    Inspired by your beautiful All Saints dresses, I did an eBay search. WOW. I'm putting thrifting one on my Bucket List. But I still have to be able to buy groceries after I pay for it...

    I love kitty pics. That Bruce is gonna break some hearts when he grows up :)
