This casual dress from J.Jill, to celebrate my anticipated (in the next week or two ) freedom from the wound vac. Because of the tube that goes from the incision to the vac, I haven't been able to wear a dress or even tuck in my tops since the surgery back in March. http://www.jjill.com/jjillonline/pro...31228&h=M&sk=M

Bought a vintage desk fan, from the 1930s. I replaced the cord and oiled it, and it runs quiet on all 3 speeds. Still needs some cosmetic work.

Huge fan of vintage stuff. Looks great!

I have a thing for the 40's and 50's though. But recently also the 70's.

Not really a purchase, it was an adoption fee: I got a new kitten today at PetSmart! Pics are in the Picture thread.

Got a Kindle for my birthday, too.

Awesome

Got a new tie as a present yesterday. Very happy about it, I've wanted a pink tie for a long time now.



I know, the shirt is kinda shitty because of the collar (too wide) and the lack of, well, fit I'll get a couple of plain white shirts tailor-made as soon as my budget allows (probably next month ).

Also, I still can't do anything more than a four-in-hand knot - kinda embarassing.

So what say you, Holdfast? Thumbs up on that tie or what?

A silver pendant:



It came with a silver chain, but I didn't care for it: it was too short, and the clasp was too difficult to manipulate. So I hung it on a leather cord instead.

Hmm...

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Love the fan -not too good to have in my house though; with the cat an' all... I did study the Dyson-fans today; very cool (if you'll excuse the pun) but also very noisy -while I was looking for an ice-cube maker -which they didn't have anywhere in town

Bought a couple of nice little boxes in stead:

See, I'm not a fan of little boxes (I know, the fairer sex enjoys having tons of little boxes to put God-knows-what in them), but LEGO-Boxes? That I can get behind
