Harlequin Rainbow

Did you see it on Instagram? The $6 silk Ungaro shirt that I got last Sunday?
I wore it on Wednesday:
Ommmmmm. Taste the rainbow.
I wore it on Thursday:
Glowing in afternoon light.
I must walk around with my arms extended at all times.
It's beautifully made. French seams inside:
Perfectly aligned pocket and center front:
Covered buttons.

All I can say is Ooh La La!

Tomorrow my mission is obtaining the Hula Pie plate. (See last week's post)
Hula Pie is A Thing, BTW. A Kimo's of Lahaina Town, Maui thing.

Shine and Sparkle at the Santa Monica Flea

The Santa Monica Airport Antique & Collectible Market is a feast for the eyes (and a drain on the wallet). It's within walking distance of my abode, which is DANGEROUS.

I already posted these photos on IG, but not all of you go there.

First the shiny stuff:
This and the next are rugs. Um, yeah.
How would one clean this?
Another rug, more practical
Other cool things
The perfect umbrellas for the Year of the Dog
HULA PIE!!!!!!
Oh Ken with your laser eyes and man bag.
Red, white, and blue
Rim reflections and red Danskos
I bought two items, I'll show you the Ajrakh textile from Gujarat (Vix has been there!)
Here I am wrapped in it on my way home:

click image to embiggen, I didn't reduce this photo
It smells just like the Indian textiles of my youth!
