Wearing Art

Wearing Art. I bought this jacket last summer at a local Art Fair. It was too warm for the summer but I've enjoyed wearing it throughout the fall and winter. And now that spring's approaching I'll probably wear it even more. When you buy art, or something hand made you assure yourself you're not going to see someone wearing the same thing; and you support the artist directly. You're not going to get a sale, probably...but I think it's a nice way to have something unique and support artists. This jacket is very well made and I wear it to dress up like above. We were heading out to dinner. This jacket paired with nice slacks can be quite dressy, or with a pair of jeans a bit more casual.
Hope you can see the beautiful brocade effect. Though the lighting made it look a bit more orange. The one above is more true to the real color.

AND speaking about wearing art, hop over to Brenda's blog and check out her 29 day give away contests!

  3. Thanks Joansie, appreciate the compliment. We were on vacation and hubby took the picture before we headed out.

    Hum...further testing, this is the full page option which is what I've been using for awhile. It's a separate page and you no longer see the blog page. Tried the embedded option which is the one I like best and had been using for a long time before switching templates. It won't work for some reason. According to settings you can't use the embed feature if you disable comments post page; but looking at that settings says it's not disabled. Anyone else having these issues?

  5. Testing further I clicked no for enabling post pages to see if they were just switched. When I did that none of these comments were visible? So that totally confused me. I posted a comment myself then to see how it worked, was going to do the enable thing again when I changed my mind since the comments were gone?? And now back to the yes for enable which I've always had and the comment I made under the No setting isn't here???

    So confused

  10. I've noticed a lot of spam comments lately. Wonder what's up with that? Love the jacket. It reminded me I have a jacket that was my Dad's in my closet. It is an artsy type thing. I'm not even sure what it was used for. I'll need to pull it out. Maybe get it cleaned and use it as a jacket. Never thought of doing that before. My friends are so inspiring!
