Another excuse - I've gained about 4 kg and nothing fits. I blame it on steroids (again). All my jeans are too tight except for the horse-riding ones. I feel so heavy and bloated and I don't know what to wear.
And my final excuse - the computer died. I'm on work computer now. That's why there are no photos. Yet.
By the way, did you see the new necklace by Faux Fuchsia and Red Phoenix Emporium? I think it's gorgeous.

I've never seen albino peacocks before. He had a white girlfriend too. Boy, were they loud!
And Saturday evening we went to the cat theater. It's from Moscow, they are quite famous. Founded in 1990 by Yuri Kuklachev who basically proved that cats can be "trained". But he doesn't really train them. He watches them and sees what each cat is capable of, what it likes to do. Now Yuri's son Dimitri continues the tradition. It's a clown show with cats doing all kinds of tricks, it's really sweet and fun to watch. We go see them everytime they come to Israel.
It was back to work on Sunday, with the usual elevator shot. New camera does a much better job than my cellphone. I'm in focus again!
Glam shot in the supermarket just to show you that I was matchy-matchy. The shoes somehow matched the t-shirt.

Dog doesn't look too happy. Probably annoyed that our PM didn't attend the summit...
And now for something completely different.
Here is a t-shirt I got for my birthday. Love the color.
Of course, I had to find matching accessories. Synthetic opals, very fashionable in Israel about 10 years ago. I have a matching necklace and 3 pairs of earrings too!

Another look at the necklace... And what is that white dot on my eye?
And these lovely roses were from my son.

So I wore my new skinny jeans. Took a lot of pictures in the mirror and this is what I came up with. I really need to work on my poses. Because I swear, in real life this outfit looked much better!!!
A close-up of the cyclops in the blouse...
After I returned home I changed the top, putting on my Zara "tattoo" t-shirt with a tail. And some loafers.
My summer bag, all golden and sparkly.
With pucci-esque lining (don't look at the label).

Here it is (forgive the fuzzy cell-phone picture).
I've been going through my wardrobe, trying to figure out how to wear the necklace, and then I decided not to complicate my life. Because ideally I'd have to replace everything. Like today on my lunch-break I wondered through the shops at the mall looking for tops and dresses of good fabrics. But what did I see? Lots of t-shirt fabrics and button-down cotton things. This is what's available. No silk, no decent chiffon (some chiffon but cheap looking). It's OK for the hot sweltering days, but come on!
Anyway, today I paired the necklace with an OK-quality stretchy top and black pants.
I didn't take a full length photo just because today was all about the necklace. I'm in love!

I fussed about with the balcony some more and this is what I came up with. Took two old candles and stuck them into the wire-net covering the lemon-tree pot (the net is there to prevent my older kitty from digging and doing the dirty stuff. That's how she killed two plants already). In the daytime it looks kinda naff but in the dark, when you light them, it looks OK.
See that wine glass? There's wine in it! Even though the steroids are not quite washed out of me yet, I can allow myself a drinkie now and then. I'm rehearsing for my birthday next week.

To recap last week, the outfit I liked best was this dark green twinset which is almost 11 years old (I bought it when Jack was a baby). It still looks good and fits well which is a surprise - the twinset hasn't changed but my body has. I wore it with my wide-leg jeans and black pointy-toed mules. I'm stuck when it comes to choosing shoes to wear with these jeans, I always come back to these mules. Here is a photo. Any ideas?
I put on my faux pearls - necklace, earrings and ring. All of them were SUPER cheap. The ring was the most expensive item - about 12 bucks.
Carnations in a jug. I love jugs. When we lived in Corfu I acquired a small collection of jugs. I don't really have any place to display them, so I rotate them as vases. This is my strawberry jug. And a berry candle from Ikea. (They opened an Ikea in my area, 20 min drive. Expect to see more and more Ikea stuff as we go along).
I've been trying to photograph my cats for the side-bar (Boomer's picture is already there, he loves to pose). No such luck. I should have taken a pic of Snooker as he slapped the lit berry candle, splashing red wax all over the table and himself. Pink-spotted cat. He spent 20 min cleaning himself. Dum-dum.
Right, I'm off to paint my nails now.
