The Emerald Green Culottes of Wonder

I've been wanting to wear my culottes for a while now. 
I'm not sad, this is pensive! Pensive, dammit! 
I was originally going to wear a sparkly black sequinned vest over this, but I looked too much like a waiter, so nope, no vest.


  • Shirt - LL Bean, consignment; first worn here with chrysanthemums in April
  • Culottes - Jac Dale, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here
  • Shoes - Enzo Angiolini, consignment; last worn here (4th outfit) in August 2014 for a wee shopping expedition

I only paid $4.00 for these culottes a couple of years ago - I've worn them at least 6 times, so down to less than a buck a wear.
Can't touch this
 See? Pants!
As always when I wear a white blouse to work, I get people craning their necks over my desk to see what interesting thing I'm wearing on the bottom. I hope I did not disappoint.

The stuff:
I did a super-fast 30-second pedicure this morning to change my yellow nails to green to go with my outfit. Yellow would have been okay, but green is better, don't you think?

I will be sad when these shoes die.

Shiny bling:
All the circles!


  • Cage cuff - Bauxo
  • Solid cuff - thrifted
  • Ring - Nine West
  • Earrings - gift from Lise


Of to my WW group! I only have 2 more weeks of my Tuesday meeting, and then I shift to just Thursdays. I've been doing both since March, which has felt like a really long time. I've missed my free evening - and L!

  3. STashworth, nope, but it's satisfying when it gets down to less than a dollar! Especially when I actually really like the piece.

  7. I have issues with culottes.
    I love seeing them on others but when it comes to me its s no-no, I got rid of my last pair a few years ago.
    Now I am looking at yours and I am tempted...
