One of these days I'll write a full and complete post where all loose ends are tied up and all questions answered, and the next time I won't have to write, "In my last post…" But until that day comes -
In my last post I profusely used the word "topper." This is the word used by Soft Surroundings to describe the Torija topper I won, and they use it for their loose, jacket-y tops. It's a handy word, one I hadn't used before, but I hope it catches on. In a comment, Curtise told me a topper in the UK would be a top hat, but in using the word for a top she said, "It is certainly easier than saying a floaty drapey non-structured jacket/cardigan made from a thin, non-knit fabric. So topper it is!" Hear, hear!
Last Saturday I went out with my family to celebrate an abundance of April birthdays. We went out to lunch at one of those places that lure you in with food, desserts, high tea, and an explosion of antiques and vintage paraphernalia. The name of the place is Indulge (which I keep typing as Indugle), but they should just say Women's Porn Warehouse.
Mr. Sparkle, my brother-in-law and step-nephew fled as soon as was polite after eating, but my other nephew (my niece's husband) was right there with us as we looked around the complex. He's so sweet and effortlessly fashionable.
Kenji has such a sense of style. If I saw him more often I would include pictures of him in every post.
Not to be outdone by Kenji's little crown, the ladies had a chance to try on our own tiaras.

A good time was had by all, and I actually bought very little except some little key charms for earrings, a rusty bird for our fence to stop the squirrels from chewing up the post...
And a pretty little dish just because it's such a pretty little dish.

I know, I'm not stimulating the economy enough. I really need to shop more and get some spring and summer clothes. Maybe tomorrow...
