Twirly in Grey and Turquoise

When I picked out this outfit last night, I thought it would end up being kind of boring, but it wasn't at all.
It's a twirly skirt! Actually, what kept it from being boring was all the glittery stuff I piled on. I also truly love these shoes - I will miss them when the cold weather rolls back around. They are just too open to do coloured tights with.

The stuff (edit: the sandals are black, not bronze, and the accessories are gunmetal - sorry about the lighting, cheap camera!):
Sparkly! Caw! I'm a crow!

Bonus picture: this is the new rug we got for our dining room (which does not have a dining room table anymore because we didn't use it and gave it away years ago):
It's totally kitty camo! Can you spot Othello, Inigo, a fur mousie and a stick with feathers?

Oh, and if you haven't visited Jane's blog, you must! She is doing another Capsule Wardrobe Challenge this year, starting September 28th, and I am so excited to do it again. Click here for a link to past Wardrobe Challenges from her (the Capsule Wardrobe Challenge, the Dress Like a Song challenge, and the 1 Skirt 3 Ways challenge, which I extended out to 5 days because I'm crazy like that!). She will be posting the full rules soon! I'm already planning what I'm going to wear for it.

Cardigan (I.N.C.), skirt (Tobias), shoes (Joneswear, consignment), earrings, necklace, brooch (Plum), belt (Plum).

  2. Oooh, look at the shinzy bronze with grey and turquoise. Nicely done, and with an impressive twirl to boot!

    Hee, where are the cats? I see no cats, just a lumpy rug. :)
