Let's see where wishful thinking gets me!

Photobucket

Winter is dragging on and I've got the worst cold... I'm really glad it's not flu which has been going around, but I'm still frigging miserable, and I had to miss a visit to Rosine, Kentucky last night, which from descriptions from my friends, seems to be a town completely devoted to playing bluegrass music in barns on Friday nights. At least it's a weekly thing and we can go again...

I winterized one of my spring dresses as a way of forcing myself to think positively. The Art Nouveau details make me smile. Oh, and notice that I have a reusable shopping bag in the background! I'm definitely planning on using it as soon as I have some money to buy groceries, but to top it all off at the moment I kind of don't, so it is full of books about Mary Queen of Scots right now.


Oh yeah, and I saw Once the other night and the clothes totally inspired me. The music is so good but too sad for me to listen to by myself...



Oh, and I've got to ask all you regular Wardrobe Remixers: what is the deal with non-WR guys "favoriting" my pictures and can it be prevented?

Aww hopefully you feel better soon and ahh the songs are incredibly sad, especially "falling slowly"-the song they play in the music shop when she's lugging around her vacuum cleaner lol

You did a really good job with that dress. I like the boots a lot. That would have been perfect for a trip to Kentucky. Get well soon!

The Clothes Horse said...

I love Art Nouveau details--the most beautiful movement in art!

sariti said...

"once" is one of my favourite movie... :.)

Have you read Margaret George's book about Mary Queen of Scots?
It's fiction but well researched and interesting....

Ninja said...

Hope you're feeling better soon, at least you're looking great despite the weather ans everything.

Mary Queen of Scots is one of my favourite historical characters....

Stararah said...

I wear a lot of my spring dresses in the winter. It makes me hopeful.

I've had a bunch of random non-wr guys favoriting me, too. Hmm..

copperoranges said...

keep your chin up, darlin! colds suck. your outfit is super cute though.

so i was reading through some of your old entries and saw a bellarmine shirt on a young boy .. do you go to bellarmine? i almost went there. and damn if louisville doesnt have the best tap water!

Wendy said...

Aw cute dress, the detail is fabulous! Thankfully, winter is coming to an end and all the summery happiness can soon be released!

Yes, you can block the pervs from "favoriting" your Flickr photos. Sadly, I've had to do it a couple of times. Just go to their page by clicking on their name or photo. Go to their buddy icon and click the scroll down menu. At the bottom there is an option to "block". They can no longer contact you or favorite any of your photos. Convenient, no?

Heather said...

Sally Jane, you are a lifesaver!

cotton candy said...

ooh la la, those boots are an awesome pair!

Mash said...

Miss Woo said...

I love the art nouveu detail too, so pretty (and arty, haha)

In Yr Fshn said...

Oh no! Once is too fun to sing along with when you are by yourself. You pretend to be Her and He is your guy!
Love the details!

ambika said...

Very nice winterizing. It looks super appropriate for cold weather. I need to be better at doing this with my summery clothes.

And yes, I've had to use the block function--twice today actually. The shoe fetish people are the worst.

ive never heard of once? im sure its great :)

Lynn said...

Once is suchhh a great movie. :] I love the song he makes up on the bus about being a broken-hearted Hoover-fixer sucker guy.

jayne said...

ooo you saw once! good job!

Secretista said...

AWW! You look AWESOME!

Feel better!! I just got over my cold, I know how you are feeling. OVERDOSE ON THE VITAMIN C!! ;D

Heather said...

Secretista: Thanks, that was so sweet! I've literally been taking about 3,000% my usual Vitamin C intake-- thanks to these amazing supplement powders that taste soooo good in grapefruit juice... and I feel a lot better now. Like, I can breathe!

Debbie Shiamay said...

You rocked that dress with those boots and belt. ;)

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

I love the way you paid the boots with the socks!

Joanna Goddard said...

hope you're feeling better! xo

Blue Floppy Hat said...

What a pretty dress (and it's my favourite colour, too). Good luck blocking the pervs, I didn't know even Wardrobe Remix had its dark side :(

Bri....! said...

Cute dress. And good luck getting over your cold.

Maxwell K said...

OK, so after a conversation with a friend earlier about '90s fashion, I'd love to hear your thoughts on that era. Namely those plastic black chokers with spiderweb-like patterns that girls used to wear when I was in middle school.

Also, you're SO lucky for missing out on this flu. It's been horrid.

Much love from your ROR Blog Buddy.

Jill said...

I love your boots and the embroidery on the dress is great. Get well soon!

Aisha said...

I've never heard of that movie before =L

I do love your outfit though, specially the socks showing a little over the boots!

Luna said...

Absolutly love the outfit. :)

I've heard so many great things about Once, but I hasn't really appealed to me.

Maybe I should take a look anyway.

AsianCajuns said...

I hope you're feeling better! I always feel so bad about Mary Queen of Scots - she had a tough life. And Once is an amazing movie, but I agree the music is sorrowful.

WendyB said...

I loved Once!

gratefulgrl80 said...

you can block people from leaving comments or favoriting your pics...that's how i do it, anyways :)

aschlee said...

Camilla said...
