I’ve been panting to see Tim Burton’s new movie Frankenweenie because I love short, chunky dogs …

Sparky reminds me of my dog Henry.

… and big-eyed cats with tiny mouths.

Mr. Whiskers reminds me of my cat, FitzRoy.

MrB and I went to see the movie at a theater a block away from our apartment last night — within the magic zone of invisibility — so I just threw on some lipstick and the only clean t-shirt I could find.  I didn’t realize till I left the house that the “stitches” in the middle of the button design on my shirt matched the trompe l’oeil stitching on my vintage Moschino jacket (and all of it matched the stitches on Sparky the Frankenweenie). A post-movie outfit photo was called for. I kept trying to persuade the dogs to pose nicely with me, but they were more interested in looking for potentially poisonous snacks on the sidewalk.

What Wendy Wore
Jacket: Moschino (acquired from eBay in 2009)
T-shirt: From the Fashion and Textile Museum in London (2006, probably)
Jeans: Citizens of Humanity (2011)
Shoes: Ash Shoes wedge sneakers (2012)
Necklace: My own IDGAF design 

Normally, I don’t wear any jewelry when I’m in the magic zone of invisibility, but I’m enjoying the IDGAF necklace more than ever after my gorgeous client Susan shocked the wig-hats off her more conservative blog readers by wearing hers. And here I had been worried that I’d had lost my touch to wind people up — especially after my mother thought the necklace was cute and funny. I guess mom has gotten used to my naughty ways.  Épater la bourgeoisie, Susan!

My sterling-silver IDGAF necklace is available on my website. Click to purchase, you rebels!

    OMG, Mr. Whiskers is FitzRoy’s long lost brother.

    Might go and watch it, they look cute. Funny how that necklace drew such extreme views…I think an R for Really should be slotted in on it.

    I think we are going to see it tonight. Also, our dogs look for potentially poisonous snacks on the ground all the time.

    OMG, that cat is channeling Fitzroy!! I’m looking forward to seeing Frankenweenie too. And yes, épater le bourgeoisie is a fine old French tradition! ;-)

      I swear I wanted to see the movie just because of the cat. I was talking about it for weeks. We’re obsessed with FitzRoy’s tiny V-shaped mouth.

    I’m dying to see this, hopefully next weekend when the PGP doesn’t have such a full social calendar! Your dogs look for potentially poisonous snacks, while mine just rolls around in the mud, grass, snow, you name it so that we have a Westie that looks like a Cairn terrier. (First thing she does after being to the groomer. Drives me coo-coo!) XXX

    That jacket is so cool, proper rock and roll! You look fabulous (and so do the pooches!) x

      When I first got the jacket, I wasn’t sure if I liked it but now I love it. Sometimes I have that reaction when something first arrives from eBay. It’s often a little bit of a shock!

  7. Fabulous Frankenweenie outfit – I can’t wait to see this film, it looks so beautiful. Love the necklace, think I need to commission a TNMA version!

    I like Tim Burton’s movies, will have to see it. Like your our outfit you tied everything together and you even got the stitches in.
    Tell you what, I never look as put together as you are here when I don’t want to be seen.
    I need to invest in some “non-work” clothes.

  9. I first read “snakes” then realized reading the comments you actually wrote “snacks.” LOL! Please tell the dogs one of your readers worried there’s poisonous snakes terrorizing small dogs in NYC.

    Susan did stir up quite a ruckus. Good for her!

    I’m determined to use épater le bourgeoisie in a conversation today. I think it’s my new mission in life.

      I always wish I could take FitzRoy everywhere (couldn’t take Gigi because she’s so mean to other dogs and Henry is scared of everything!)

  11. I’m dying to see Frankenweenie!

    Thanks for the puppy pic! We loved NYC in part because we figured The Corginator would never be able to find other dog’s er, leavings, to eat on the sidewalk. Foiled by concrete!

    You look so hip. I keep wondering if I buy an IDGAF necklace, how long it will take my bosses to decipher it :P

      The necklace is so delicate most people don’t notice it — and if they do, you just claim it’s the initials of your family. You know, Igor, Daphne, Godric, Aloysius, and Frankenweenie.

    I nearly flipped my wig-hat when I read “wig-hat!”

    I love the serendipitous nature of your stitch outfit.
