Take Me To The Ball

Hi Ladies

Rain, rain today but it is ok after so many sunny days it perfectly acceptable.
I will be checking all your fabulous blogs today, i am sorry, these days i do not always the energy  to  do so.
This girl is home resting and watching 40's movies today on TV - The ladies were so refined in their dressing in those days, ultra feminine, gorgeous hair, the men were virile when you think about it, you can say it is a bit corny but i confess i like watching those movies.

I changed my hair color -  it is bourgogne - or reddish purple - it makes a statement, it is bold, it is ME - I love it! 

Nothing spectacular happening around here, as you know i am on sick leave and the days are pretty quiet.

I spend my day reading, taking pictures when i am inspired by something in my closet or purchased at the thrift store. I talk to friends, take my medication, pet my cat  this one will be missing me when i go back to work!

In this post i am wearing a spectacular orange skirt that i found at Value Village for $3.99 and a faux fur vest that i purchased at Renaissance, i paid a little bit more since it is well known brand and finally the vintage blouse was also purchased at Renaissance.

I was waiting for the rain to stop to shoot the pics - I knew a would have the light needed to do my dramatic effects!

Enjoy Ladies - Love you all xxxx

I love your new hair color and that orange skirt is super spectacular!!! I love watching classic/vintage films. The costumes and seamstresses during that time were impeccable! Loved it! :D

Patti @ NotDeadYet Style said...

I watch movies from the 40's just for the fashion sometimes -- the women and men always look so polished and refined. I absolutely love your new hair!!

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

Wow I wish I could pull off your hair colour- it looks great! Plus you're a gal after my own heart- I love colourful clothes-the brighter the better!

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

Oh you darling woman!!! I too find solace in 1940s movies and I'm sure they have special healing powers, especially when watched with a purring pussy cat! I love the rain too, for me it's a form of respite from the glaring Queensland sunshine, drenching the thirsty ground and washing out my dusty brain:)). I am completely and utterly in love with every single piece of this ensemble. If I saw you in the street, I would have to stop and say hello - I adore the new hair colour so much!!! xoxoxoxoxo

Anne said...

Je ne sais quoi said...

Great mix, i like it.

Emmett Katherine said...

That skirt is just so fun and cheerful! Love the colour & texture.

I like watching old movies too (mainly from the 60s & 70s) people seemed more polished and put together and almost carried themselves differently.

Vix said...

I love the new hair colour, Ariane, such a brilliant contrast to the colours in your outfit.
That skirt is a dream and worn so fabulously with the fur gillet and retro blouse, I love it!
1960s and 70's Bollywood movies always cheer me up, the glamour, the cheesy script and the daft dances never fail to rouse me from the gloom!
Have the best weekend, my beautiful friend. xxx

Hey Arianne
Hope you are in full throttle soon !
I think you got a an amazing deal on this skirt - the color is marvelous and I can picture you wearing this with a crisp white button down shirt and a wide fabric belt - very Carolina Herrera.

Swooning over the skirt. I'm so jealous, I go bonkers over anything that's orange. One day I must make a trip to value village, until I do please continue to post your lovely finds.
