Girl on Fire

Post and run tonight - off to get myself a birthday massage! 

But I wanted to share this shirt's debut outing. Ironically covered the sleeves with a blazer today to keep warm, but at least there is one other way I can wear it besides the bell sleeve. Bonus shot from when I got home and forgot I had better pics already (kitty Elliott likes the bag). :)

Also shown are a herringbone necklace and a pretty right hand ring handed down from my mom. She said she was going to leave them to us but wasn't wearing them anyway and would rather see us enjoy them. The necklace is silver, and the ring is gold with a garnet stone and white stones on the sides.

    OMG love the girl on fire!!!  Gorgeous necklace and ring.  Isn't heirloom jewelry the best.  You just feel the love and every good memory every time you wear them.  You look fabulous.  Have a great rest of the b'day weekend!!

    A killer look for the b-day girl. Snuggle with Elliot for me. xo

    I am glad you kept the blouse, it is stunning on you. Not all sleeves have to be scrunched, you know! :-)
    Beautiful ring and will be thinking of you mom every time you wear it.
    Happy birthday once more!

    Elliott!  Hi buddy!  Love your little white paws!  Such-a-good-boy-aren't-you-yes-such-a-good-boy-you're-so-handsome-yes-you-are-such-a-handsome---oh, sorry - I kind of lost my head there!  Rae - you look good too.  ;-)

    Gril on fire indeed! Enjoy the massage. The jewelry from you mom is such a real special gift, my grandmother gave us (the daughters and granddaughters) some of her jewelry and we all tresured the memory of her giving them to us at a lovely meal and telling the history of each one nearly as much as the pieces themselves.

    Rae you look amazing -- the blouse is rich and wonderful.

    I understand it's your birthday, so I want to wish you the best of years!  Your birthday and garnet reminded me that, when I turned thirty, my mother gave me three garnet rings.  One for each decade.  One for each generation.  The first was a garnet and seed pearl lovely that belonged to my grandmother.  The second, a ring of hers that I had admired for  along time.  The third, a ring that she purchased just for me.

    Yours is strong, rich, and feminine -- just like you!

    Love it, the title of the post cracked me up, I've been listening to the CD from catching fire, all day. lol.

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeous. I loved your title and am glad to see that blouse in action. Your Mum's ring is lovely and unusual with the square cut garnet. More fire.

    Gorgeous top and beautiful ring!

  • Debra replied 5 years ago

    You look gorgeous, love the top and a beautiful ring :)

  • AJ replied 5 years ago

    Oohhh, that top is FAB!  Lovely jewelry from your mom.  What a great idea for her to enjoy you wearing it now rather that when she is gone.  The ring in particular is GORGEOUS!

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    How do you manage to look so good, every day?  And you make it look so easy.  Sorry I missed your birthday thread, but today's still your birthday, or at least for the next 33 minutes.  So -- Happy Birthday!  Hope you had tons of fun.  I'm buying you a round of birthday drinks next time I'm in town.  :-)

    You're certainly smokin' hot in that outfit!

    Love birthday girl on fire and your Trouve blazer and RR blouse together.  Elliott has great taste in handbags, too.  I think your ring is beautiful and that your Mom is very special in wanting you to enjoy it now.  Team Wear!

    Always lovely and Happy Birthday :)

  • Aubergine replied 5 years ago

    Happy belated birthday! You look lovely! And it may be just me, but the necklace looks almost like it's glowing against the background of the top -- a really cool effect.
