Time to throw another article of clothing to the wolves! This brown lace skirt has been in my closet since about 2007. It never made it into a capsule last year, so it's getting the same treatment as the new-to-me clothing and shoes: you get to vote!
|And yes, I am wearing knee-highs. What of it?|
I am on the lookout for another olive cardigan. This one is a great colour, but the cut leaves much to be desired. The mustard blouse got in the way much as I'd remembered, and I splashed salad dressing on the ruffles. *sigh* Into the wash it goes!
I adore the shoes. They can do no wrong.
But let's move on to the skirt. It's by Planet, a UK brand, purchased new but on deep discount at The Bay department store several years ago, just after I lost all my weight. I think it was around $39.99, but regular price was over $200.00. Planet ain't cheap! It's a lovely thick lace and is fully lined. The back of it flares and dips slightly at the hem - it is very pretty on and sexy when I'm walking (I tell myself).
January 2012, with my granny sweater (another item that didn't make it in any capsules, but that I ended up culling at some point - didn't love it). Before that, I wore it in June 2011 (with shoes that I still have - they'll be up for a vote at some point!), in November 2010 (with some seriously pointy and shiny red boots - consigned them, I think), in September 2010 (I'm showing off the back of the skirt), in February 2009 (dancing like Elaine in "Seinfeld" and wearing my kickass leopard shoes that ALSO did not make it into a capsule, that also will be up for voting - BTW, the text of a really good speech that I wrote is in that post), in December 2009 (with my lovely green tweed jacket and some great shoes that fell apart), and in August 2008 (with turquoise and my old cruise shoes, also long-gone).
So, really, this only makes 8 times worn in 5 years (on the blog). What do you think?
