We’re your ears burning, Jake? I was on,y thinking yesterday that you hadn’t posted in a while. So lovely surprise today to see you looking so very dashing in your suit. You both look gorgeous.

I’m so glad I’m not the only one who becomes frustrated by bad driving. I’m the one in her car shouting at people who don’t indicate or indicate incorrectly on road-abouts. It’s not hard people. Oh & don’t get me started on slow drivers in the overtaking lane, going 20 below the speed limit & overtaking no one. Get out of my way!! Grrrr!!! Am also a bit of a get where I have to go, get what I need or do what I have to do & go home person BayougirlMrsS. Especially at shopping centres. Can’t stand them or all the zombie like people aimlessly wandering.

Popped into the city this morning & thought I’d do a side view pxt as well for a change. More shoulder pad & more black.

Bought a leather moto jacket today cause my old very soft & buttery leather jacket, which I love, is too big now. I just got away with it unzipped last year but not now.
Old coat - crying. It went with everything casual to formal.

New coat. I don’t love it as much. It’s more casual but it’s the best I could find. Didn’t want too many zips & studs. I may return it yet. Sigh!

You have such pretty (well-made, and expensive-looking!) dresses! Love this one.

I love the new jacket! I think it will be a great contrast to all of your lovely clothes. 😊

Ok, @Arabesque, seeing your new jacket inspired me to go looking through my basement for the old jacket that I wore when I was in high school.

Found it!

You can tell its from the eighties because of the ginormous shoulder pads (its hard to see their full-sized glory in these pics, but trust me, they are huge, lol).

Also, just goes to show how sizing has changed over the last 35 or so years...this jacket is labelled size XS, which is more like a Medium compared to my current 2021 XS jackets.

If I can get this altered to remove the shoulder pads and take it in to be more fitted (and remove those utterly useless epaulettes!) , I could consider wearing it again (or give it to the Kid). As it is, its just not for either of us. I figure the cost of getting a leather jacket altered would not really be cost effective though.

Who knows, maybe football-player-esque shoulder pads will make a comeback.

Isn’t it funny the things we keep. Does the jacket have some special meaning or memory associated with it @ms.sss which made you keep it or did you just love it?

The 80s are back just not as extreme as we remember them thank goodness. I reckon with just those few adjustments you could wear it very successfully. Maybe you only need to replace the shoulder pads with smaller ones after you remove the epaulettes of course - lol. And I love that belt. If it vanishes from your wardrobe I bet the kid has it 😆.

Well the leather moto jacket went back this morning & I bought this one instead which I discovered during a random online search last night. It’s more shaped than my original one which I like but otherwise very similar. Much, much happier. The leather is softer too.

I love the texture of fabrics. I’m the one inappropriately caressing clothing in stores while making suggestive pleasurable noises. I’ve been known to touch or examine the fabrics of clothing people are wearing. Actually did it this morning though I do ask first specially these days of social distancing. One of the reasons I don’t enjoy online shopping I think.

Naw, I didn't love it so, so very much. I think I'm just a hoarder, lol. Though this jacket was a hard earned one I remember, it was one of the more expensive items of clothing that I bought with my lowly teenage part-time job earnings, so I guess there is a bit of nostalgia to it, haha.

I like the new jacket! Is it super fitted? Can't wait to see it on you!

Working with leather is a skill & a talent @BayougirlMrsS. Don’t let her go. I’ve had a few leather pants over the years that could benefitted by someone who can tailor leather. Hope you can find your leathers.

Embrace the pale @WishMeSmaller. We who are very fair need to stick together. Those compression sleeves are fabulous & very practical to protect your legs while fencing.

lunch with my girls. We’re trying to go out to somewhere nice for lunch or dinner every 4 weeks. Look I’m not wearing all black 😆😆😆. Popped on my new leather coat as it was a bit overcast & cool today - Autumn & lunch was on a rooftop. I love my jacket. So glad I returned the other one.

Had the dress in my wardrobe since just prior to COVID last year. This is it’s first outing. Amusingly, Alyson Hannibal wore the dress to a presser in February for her movie Flora & Ulysses except it was like three sizes too big on her. Think I won the ‘who wore it best’ comp. 😜

You definitely won The Who Wore it Best! 🎉😍😍 You look amazing 🤩 I love the green shoes and the new leather jacket looks gorgeous on you. 🥰

Thank you for appreciating my pale, old lady legs, @Arabesque! 😂

I just got the compression sleeves yesterday. I have been wearing the knee high stocking socks with compression for many years, but the sleeves will be so much better for running/exercise since I can wear appropriate shoes and socks with them. They feel so good on, but they are like $40 per pair...GASP 😱😱 I bought two pair to start, so more frequent washing will need happen.

They actually look very much like mine though your super long legs are a little slimmer. 😁😁

Were you/are you a biker gal??? Methinks if you would look pretty awesome in some (well-fitted) H2T leather today.

@WishMeSmaller: You just reminded me how I LOVED to wear calf compressors during the period immediately after plastics. I stopped because I lost one of them in the wash. I need to order me some new ones! P.S. Did you guys finish putting up the fence (I have no idea how long it takes to put up a fence....)

@Arabesque: You DEF wore it better than the other lady (did you mean, Alyson HANNIGAN? lol) She needs a new stylist whoever she is, as that dress is waaaaaaaaaaay too big on her. New leather jacket looks great on you 😍
