I had a very productive day today, and I'm feeling good. The weekend is almost here! And I have an event to go to tonight!
|It was light enough not to need the flash this morning - yay!|
I've only worn it a few other times: in January 2010 (with the same boots that are in this month's capsule, and a grey top), in September 2010 (with an ill-fitting sweater/belt combo) and the last time in August 2011, where I branched out and did a light turquoise with it.
I always struggle with what to wear with it - grey, black, blah. I haven't strayed too far from that with this outfit, but I think my pieces are more interesting now. Instead of a lumpy grey sweater, I have this nice cowl-neck sweater that is much nicer on my shape.
here. I liked how the indigo blue of the jacket and shoes went with the purple of the skirt.
I last wore the shoes here with bright blue and lighter purple. Best Shoes Ever.
My Grandma J's brooch:
Jacket (Ricki's, consignment), sweater (August Silk, consignment), skirt (Smoking Lily, consignment), shoes (Poetic License), ring (Wendy Brandes), earrings (Plum?), brooch (Pastelli, vintage 60s, Grandma J).
It is fitting to be wearing something from my Grandma J today (and tonight), as I'm headed out to the theatre (this one, where L and I went to see Janelle Monae) with my mom, my ex's mother, my ex-sister-in-law, my brother's sort-of girlfriend, and my two oldest nieces (I know, I have a complicated family) to see "The Sound of Music." It's my mom's gift to us all for Christmas, a tradition started with the same group going to see "Mama Mia!" last summer (here, in August).
I did a change-up of jackets and shoes for tonight.
|Yes, I am having a glass of wine! Wee!|
I moved the pin to my waist, over the knot from the coat's ties.
Enter arm and finger parties:
Coat (Kania, consignment), sweater (August Silk, consignment), skirt (Smoking Lily, consignment), boots (Prepare Volunteers, Fluevog), brooch (Pastelli, vintage 60s, Grandma J), earrings (Plum?), bracelets (from left: Saltspring Island, gift from L; Fossil; St. Paul's Cathedral gift shop; Club Monaco), rings (from left: Mexican, gift from Cindy; Wendy Brandes; vintage 80s; Mexican, gift from Mom & Dad, vintage 80s).
