Razzle, dazzle and a little bit of jazzle

That’s life in sequins.

Found this cardigan at the antique fair where I found my men’s battledress jacket.

My jeans are Rock and Republic, but every time I wear them I think of Mr. Green Jeans. (Did you grow up watching Captain Kangaroo? Was that just a Canadian thing?)

Beezie requested close-ups of these boots (they’re the same ones as in this post, they just don’t slouch as much when I’ve tucked jeans into them). So, my friend, here you go.

Comfiest boots ever.

    And I improve my english thanks to your blog… I can’t translate “jazzle” Did you invent the word ? Nice sequins top anyway.

    Ah, I’m loving your bling! And it makes a great contrast to the earthy colors of the jeans and boots. Really enjoyed those photos of Istanbul in your last post too… the Blue Mosque was pretty much my favorite as well.

    P.S. You’re on my blogroll too. I’ve been meaning to do it forever actually… I can’t believe it took so long!

    Gerri — I’m blushing. Thank you.

    la flore — definitely made up “jazzle” — feel free to make up your own French translation.

    haute — wasn’t the Blue Mosque the most gorgeous thing in the world? I miss hearing the calls to prayer.

    Rissa — I suppose it’s only fair given how often I nab your footwear.

    Dapper — thanks man!
