Thrifty Thursday: Girls’ Night Out

I decided to try a more polished, less quirky look for dinner and drinks with a few of my friends. I also wanted to try another red and brown outfit, like I tried last week. So I put together this ensemble. I have to admit, I felt very sophisticated in it.

I wore red shoes and paired them with-wide leg brown pants that I found in Ragamoffyn’s, a high-end consignment shop in Kirkland. Then I thought I’d wear something else I don’t usually wear with brown: black. I added a funky silver and red pendant necklace from Macy’s.

And, as National Poetry month wraps up, I give you:

Jabberwocky
by Lewis Carroll

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

    I love red shoes!!! They liven up your outfit and brighten up dreary days!

    I bought a pair of khaki capris at Ragamoffyn’s (one of my favourite capris!) while visiting Seattle. Great little shop! It’s sunny out today, I think I’ll wear them … with red shoes!

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
