Date Day Downtown

Vintage pink fur felt hat with pearls, vintage black cropped jacket, vintage white lace blouse, vintage pink leather gloves, vintage black suede clutch and vintage pearls-estate sales, vintage black suede with leather trim Andrea Carrano heeled ankle boots-consignment shop, long blue/grey Matsuda skirt with attached wide black waistband-consignment shop.

The Style Crone loves the concrete of the city as much as she enjoys the flowering trees of the parks and neighborhoods. The buildings and the trees both stretch and reach for the same sky, providing life enhancing variety, contrast, and diversity.  So downtown to Dixons on a Friday afternoon for lunch, laughter, and conversation with a friend who we met along the way.  A magical afternoon with Nelson by my side, taking photos on the street with the city bus reflected in the window of the restaurant that we have frequented over the years, bringing back memories of hat wearing days past.  With the April chill in the air there is no need to take off my gloves or my felt hats until the weather warms and the seasonal transition is complete.

    Sounds like a wonderful afternoon. This pink hat is most excellent and it was wonderful to see you on HuffPost yesterday…in leopard.

    You couldn’t look more beautiful in the vintage blouse with the pink hat and vintage pearls. You were on the HuffPost? Could you give us a link to that?

    Glad you were able to get out and about. The outfit is charming and the boots give it that extra sizzle…love a stiletto heel and pointed toe! The hat and gloves put it magically over the top. Lovely.

    Your words and your outfit are pure poetry, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
    I am so glad that you hit the town and had a superb time.
    Much love to both of you.

    I am like you….I love both the city and the country. Country brings peace & serenity. City brings life & vibrancy. You look vibrant!!! I love the pink and I love living your stories along with you! You really must write a novel or a movie script!!

    That hat is so charming! Loved your HuffPo leopard too.

    I agree, there’s something very energizing about cities.

    I admire you so much. You have such style and a beautiful way with words. I wish I could be like you. I live in a small town with no resources for finding anything…and I’m a plus size to boot. I’ll never have the style you do but I really enjoy your posts and wish you all the best.

    I would never have thought of combining these colors. But they are so perfect together. Yet another elegant Style Crone outfit.
