After all the black and grey of yesterday, I wanted lots of colour today!
This is my Banana Republic tailored teal shirt that I got on consignment back here in November for $28.00. I'm wearing it underneath one of my favourite items in my wardrobe, this grey wool strapless dress. It's not only grey, and wool, but also faintly pinstriped AND it has a bubble hem AND it has pockets. This dress goes to 11. I have never worn it as a strapless dress!
I got it on consignment a few years ago - it's by Club Monaco and was around $40. I first wore it here in April 2009.
The last time I wore it was in November 2011 with another awesome pair of Fluevogs. I've also worn it here in April 2011 with a yellow shirt under it (I don't have that shirt anymore; it went a funny colour when I washed it), in August 2010 as part of "Bride of Dress Week!" (I like it with that purple shirt), in Sept 2010 with yesterday's red shoes, in Mar 2010 as part of a mini capsule wardrobe challenge (two different looks), in Nov 2009 underneath a cardigan, and in Oct 2009 underneath a mustard cami.
here, on our trip to Vancouver; there are some better pictures of them). I wore them for the Steam Con in April of last year (3rd outfit: warning, lots of pictures) and then wore them recently for a November Wild Card, here, with my flannel dress.
Off to WW!
