There's something weird going on between me and Wendy B. That's Wendy Brandes, the jewelry designer. I don't follow her blog regularly, but I should. I stopped by the other day because I saw the title: What Wendy Wore:Family Guy Epiphany and 2 Seinfeld References. How could I not look at that? I love Seinfeld, and most of Family Guy. And Wendy's post was so funny! She referenced the puffy shirt on Seinfeld, as well as the pink-striped jacket lining. You should read her post, and watch all the Seinfeld reruns if you don't know them already.
I commented that I also have a ruffly shirt, which I call my puffy shirt, and which I was planning (before I read her post) to wear today. She replied that she wants to see a picture. So yada, yada, yada, here I am with a picture.

I thrifted this Oscar de la Renta puffly shirt. I just love the double ruff on the cuff. (That phrase kind of makes me think of "I like to shop at the duty-free shop." Another Seinfeld reference. And really, don't you come across real-life Seinfeld references almost every week?)
The denim skirt is from JCP, tights from Target, thrifted shoes, belt from Fred Meyer, and necklace made by me last night while watching TV (probably not the kind of thing Wendy wants to hear). I'm going to call it "The Mulva."
Today on Wendy's blog she mentions buying stuff in museum stores. If you're reading this, Wendy, check out my post last Sunday, down at the bottom, where I mention the earrings I bought at the art museum store.
And then she mentions a children's book about kids spending the night in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg. I never read that book as a child, but I read about it on an art history blog, and I've been trying to find it at my local library. They have it in the catalog, but it's never on the shelves, even though the catalog says it's not checked out. Huh.
I'm thinking either Wendy is psychic or I am. To cover my bases, I'll be adding Wendy's blog to my blogroll. And I'll be going back to the kid's section at the library and looking – again – for that book. It'll probably be there now!
Then I'll stop at the bakery for a chocolate babka.
