Oh, it's been a long day...and tomorrow will be longer. However, I'm staying positive with the power of green culottes!
|I stair, and stare|
I also liked how they adapted to the Spring "long over long" looks that are popular now, and the wide-legged cropped pant trend. Yeah, I already got that covered! I don't need to buy anything new. And you know I found these in the vintage section of the thrift store, right? Of course I did! I found them for $4.00 (shame my shoddy memory - I was bragging about paying $7.50 for them!) back in April 2013 (here) and wore them five times last spring/summer, including the last time here with orange other and Major 80s colours.
The sequined top is one that I bought new just over 3 years ago when our local Plum store closed. It's by Dex.
here (last outfit) in August with my purple silk flutter maxi skirt. After some research, it appears I thrifted it for $3.00 back here (last outfit) in September 2011. I guess I have gotten good cost-per-wear out of it. I don't really care that this style of cardi is "out" - it serves a very useful purpose and allows me to have arm coverage (for sun and the buh-byes) and to wear a cool sleeveless top like this one to work.
I can never resist doing the MC Hammer pants pose with these culottes:

here with pouffy, copper and leather in March.

Tomorrow will be a long day for me, so I might not have a post up, but I will for Friday for sure. And don't forget: Shoe Shine starts on Saturday!
