We were at Steve & Celia's party last weekend and Celia dragged me into her closet to look at her clothes (not like it was hard, as I love looking in people's closets to see what kind of gems they have hidden there), and she pulled out this skirt and gave it to me! I was agog! What a sweet thing to do. I tried it on under the kimono dress and it was like it was made for me. It was super comfortable all day at work today, too - I felt like a million bucks.
Part of that is also the nice detail on the sheer shirt (it has weird little ruffly sleeves - I'll wear it in the summer with some jeans and show my arms). This was a nice find from a consignment shop that I usually don't shop in because their prices are too high, but this was on the sale rack for $20.Yup, that's a black boot.
The other part of it is these boots. Of course, last year was all about the black patent and I HAD to have black patent boots. Well, I'm not paying a ton for real patent leather, so I found these, which are the Bay's house brand for shoes. They were on sale, naturally. Can't remember how much but it was under $50. A close up:
