Allo Ladies!
I have been blessed with the mighty cold this weekend
But i feel amazingly better today!
It could  have been what i took for it, suggested by my pharmacist
Cold FX - Apparently it boosts your immune system so you feel better faster -
Original Post - Modified --- I realized that Cold FX altered my mind

I don't know what the hell you are writing but you sure look good after taking the stuff!

  This stuff works!
 Make up- Vintage frock and Cold FX  - A winning combo!

I love San Francisco, I was born there. Even thought I live across the country, when I go out for a visit I always try to spot at a Thrift Town. There's a huge one on Mission St.

Hello Ariane,
I hope you will fell much better soon.
This lovely dress is actually a great finding. What a cute pattern and it goes perfectly together with your teal leather jacket.
It's a great idea to celebrate your birthday in California, maybe looking forward to holidays makes you radiant. You look fantastic.
Take care of you!

Ah, sorry to hear you have a cold. Cold FX is usually very helpful...even Don Cherry thinks so. And if there is an upside to having a virus now, is that you are getting it over with before your birthday celebration in San Francisco. What a blast you will have!

Thanks for your kind words on my blog Ariane.

Patti @ NotDeadYet Style said...

Sorry you've been sick, Ariane. But your trip to SF will be fabulous, I think! Love your thrifted vintage dress here, with your very cool blue jacket. And thanks for linking up!

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

Oh honey ... I gotta get me some 'o that Cold FX just for everyday if it'll make me look like a movie star as you do here!!! Sending you a lovely warm breeze from Queensland to help you get better in time for your trip:). So you're a fishy sign? Same as my hubby - I have such a terrible soft spot for water signs, they can wrapped me around their little fingers with their charms:)) God I love your AMAZING frock so, so, so much and the blue leather jacket - EGAD!! Gorgeous!! You and Shelley are rocking the blue leather this week:) xoxo

Claire said...

Such a cool dress! It's so cute, and the fact that you got it for $5 makes it even better! I hope you enter in my giveaway to win a bubble necklace!:)


Val Sparkle said...

I think you're lucky if you've only had a cold. Lots of people in my office have had much worse, and I am hoping I don't catch anything.

Your dress is wonderful, but especially with that red necklace. They really make a fun, and graceful outfit. And I also like the addition of the jacket. You really have a flair!

That swap sounds like fun, and so does a trip to San Francisco!

Joni said...

Fantastic jacket!
My daughter turned 29 this weekend and my 53rd birthday is in April. I'm right there beside you Ariane!

Have a blast in San Fransisco. So much to do and see there.

So glad you're feeling better, my dear! You certainly look gloriously fit and fabulous in that stunning printed shift and that killer jacket! Love the creepers, too.
I have a very similar Hand Of Fatima a man gave me in Morocco many years ago, love the red beads on yours.
