Talk Like a Pirate Day

Saturday was International Talk Like a Pirate Day. We love to celebrate in grand style by dressing up in full pirate garb, getting our free dozen donuts each at Krispy Kreme, and gowning grog at a local watering hole.
I'm still piecing together a pirate costume after my major weight loss a few years back.  Someday I'll have the money to make really nice one but till then I'll skirt by with what I have.

I lucked out with this corset vest, I found it at my favorite Vintage/everything shop for something like $15 or so. It is hand made from a nice brocade and fits me like a glove, and face it, anytime I don't have to sew brocade I'm thrilled. My mini pirate hat is from Etsy and my treasure chest purse is just a decorator box from Hobby Lobby at I got when a friend moved. I normally wear one of my off shoulder Renaissance chemises but I got this shirt from a friend clearing out her cosplay costumes and it just screamed pirate to me. I wore my favorite Aerosole heels and tights from Sock Dreams.

It felt fantastic just to relax, put back a few beverages, and hang out with good friends.
