Airship Pirate Jacket

Thursday, February 3, 2011


The snow and ice storm has passed us and I can finally leave the house. Thank goodness, I've had a bit of cabin fever these past few days. I'm experimenting with different lighting areas throughout my house so I can find a good indoor spot for outfit pics. Pj and I are going out for date night tonight and here's my comfy, warm outfit.
The brown dress is a super stretchy, modern dress. It's made of t-shirt material so it's incredibly comfortable for a pregnant gal (29 weeks!!). Also comfortable for a pregnant gal (instead of tights that hug the belly) are these thick, brown knee-high socks, paired with flats safe for walking on ice. I really miss my heels and can't wait to be able to wear them again but my joints and starting to loosen and I have the pregnancy waddle so it's smart flats for me for the next few months.
   
My totally awesome jacket
 Tonight, I get to debut my fantabulous brown wool jacket. I found this jacket at Leo's Old Clothes in Columbia for $20! It was loaded with moth holes but I had to bring it home. Pj goes to school at night (online) so I enjoy laying in bed, darning moth holes while he works on homework in the bedroom. Darning is my Zen. I don't have ever hole darned but I'm almost finished! Most of the holes were teeny tiny pin holes but one tiny hole will be gaping in the future so I wanted to fix them now. I don't know if this jacket is from the 30's or 40's but it had kind of a steampunk airship pirate quality to it and I love that.

  14. That outfit is to die for! You look so great! The colors are perfect for you; I love a nice mustard yellow, but I can't wear it; it looks amazing on you! Enjoy your date night, I know how precious those are when you have children! I also loved the stretchy dresses when I was pregnant, I had one from Down East Basics that got me through all nine months, soooo comfortable!

  15. That coat is just fabulous! (It looks 30's to me, but what do I know...) For $20 who cares about moth holes!

    Well, actually I do care about moth holes, but haven't the foggiest idea how to go about mending them. I'm intrigued that you are so handy with a needle.
