The Day of the Pompom.

I decided, as I was wearing my new grey knit top with the pompoms today, to wear as many pompoms as possible. How many could I rustle up out of my wardrobe? I was willing to rise to the challenge …

Well, the skirt may not have pompoms attached to it, but it has giant spots that match nicely. Naturally I wore my 1940s pompom headband. The pompoms on it are almost the same size as the ones on the knit. My earrings, reminiscent of pompoms, are handmade by me with Indian beads that are themselves beaded with iridescent blue seed beads. I love those because they dangle so satisfyingly. There is a matching necklace, but this is one case where matching earrings and necklace really would be too much – plus the pompoms on the knit are in the way.

My pearl ring is big and round, and the shoes – although they are pompomless (you can’t have everything, I guess) – are a pretty spectacular cobalt blue suede and patent leather. Work ready.
