Outfit of the Week 3: U.S.A. Red, White, and Blue

I drew inspiration for this week’s Outfit of the Week: U.S.A. Red, White, and Blue from an outfit I discovered this past spring in my closet. I  searched Etsy for an outfit similar to my closet outfit, but mid-week, I changed my mind.

It’s the middle of the summer, and who wears a suede jacket, a long skirt, and boots? Alright, there might be someone, somewhere, so, I will save that outfit for when the temperature drops.

Yea, I remember I posted an Autumn Crisp Orange outfit just last week. Well, I don’t wanna do a cold temperature outfit two weeks in a row. Besides, it’s the 4th of July weekend.  It’s a time to remember why the US of A  is the greatest country in the world. Ok, I am biased. I haven’t ever lived anywhere else. No, I take that back. I lived in Turkey when I was three years old for a few months. I don’t have any memory of it.

It is a time to remember our soldiers who have fought, who continue to fight and who have died in foreign lands.

It’s a time to celebrate with our family and friends our unique heritage of all peoples.  It’s a time to celebrate our many freedoms, while eating hotdogs, spring rolls, hamburgers, pelmeni, steak, tamales,  jerk chicken, pancit,  crispy fish,  potato pancakes, pork and beans, Polish Meatballs, ham hocks, lentil stuffed peppers, bratwurst, watermelon, anise cookies, and cheesecake, ice cream and apple pie, and guzzling beer, sipping wine, and eating more food before we flop down on a blanket, or fall into a chair, or rest at the window, and watch the dazzling display of beauty in the evening sky.

The U.S.A. Red, White, and Blue outfit starts off with a pretty silver and white metallic, and cottony, sleeveless turtleneck with a defined “squiggle” pattern. It is made of acrylic and is a size small.  SOLD!

Complimenting the “squiggle” pattern of the turtleneck is a “fireworks” pattern of a 1920’s beautiful and burned silk velvet, vintage cobalt blue scarf. Wear it at the neck, pin it to your shoulder or wear it at the waist.

    • Hi Thomas,
      Thank you for stopping by. Sorry about the link, I popped back into the account after posting which is why you probably could not access it. I will stay out now, long enough for people to read. I’ve often wondered about what happens when I go back into the account right after I post. Now, I know. Thank you. 🙂

    • Hi Thomas,
      It occurred to me what you might have been talking about. The link for the earrings is broken because the Etsy crafter has temporarily closed his store.

      I will also break a link to an item when the crafter’s/vendor’s listing has expired after four months and the vendor may not immediately relist the item. However, I do leave the link to the vendor’s shop.

      If you are interested in the earrings, click on Dorkorama99’s link to his shop which will give more information on how he can be located.
