Wendy B - Owned!

I have been having fun going through my closet and looking for the warm weather clothes. I got so used to wearing sweaters - this feels like a real treat.
Of course, I was okay until the A/C came on and then I was glad to have picked up this lovely cashmere cardigan a couple of weekends ago:
It's the colour of a Siamese cat. And gee, look who's on the label:
Not "our" Wendy B, of course, but isn't that hilarious? Naturally, her name would be on quality goods, though. This was consignment for $24.99.

The stuff:
The shoes are new-to-me and are actually brand new Chinese Laundry! They even still had the Winners label stuck to the bottom! And only $16.99 - steal! It's totally worth it to troll second-hand and consignment stores for little gems like these. I love the tortoise shell.

The necklace is new and I haven't worn it before - it's a little bit overkill with the pearls, but since when am I subtle? Ha! I think not. The earrings are from my wedding - I think it's time to get some new pearl studs (really bigass ones).

Cardigan (Wendy B, consignment), blouse (I.N.C., consignment), suit skirt (Kenzie), shoes (Chinese Laundry, consignment), necklace (Aldo Accessories), earrings (c. 1996?).

  2. Beautiful print on that blouse!
    Yes, that darn air conditioning is annoying - they keep cranking it up in my building when it gets hot. I bring cardigans to work, but some of the time it's been getting so cold that I've been throwing a polar fleece on top of the cardigan too so I won't shiver too bad at my desk. It's so bizarre to be bundled up inside when it's so hot out.

  4. Thrifting cashmere feels so good, doesn't it? And it's often better quality than new!

  7. What great finds!! Love them. I think a little something over the top is fun. And you can sure pull it off. Love it all. Giant pearl studs would be so much fun!

  10. Thanks, Diane! I don't know how much I'll be able to wear the necklace for work, but I'm sure it will be good with other outfits.
