Ice Skating

It’s hot today. Not like last week(thank heavens!). So, I’m taking the kids skating. My daughter is wearing my first competition costume. Over two decades ago!!

And me? I’m wearing one of my last costumes. I was 18 when this was made?

Granted I have paired it with black rights (all I had), and I threw a short sleeve sweater over the top. The dress may still fit, but I’m a little old to be showing THAT much skin in public me thinks!!


Sweater: Banana Republic
Dress: Old Skating Costume (this is where my crystal obsession started! I used to bead all my costumes)
Tights: who knows? 10+ years old
Shoes: Strassed Christian Louboutins (of course!!!)

Now to not kill myself.

On another note, I finished the Nine West shoes this morning! I call these “orange dreams”, cause they are getting me out of something I only dreamed I could get out of doing!! ❤ ya Courtney!!


The color is wild, but I kind of like it. I used large crystals on these, ss30, ss34, ss16, and ss12. So they were quick!

Until next time,
