My office-mate Bonnie gave me a pair of her earrings that belonged to her mom (aw! thank you so much, Bonnie! I wish you'd been there today to see it in person), so I built the outfit around them. Yellow cardi (nice and Spring-y), green cami, picking up more green in the net tights and shoes, and then the skinny brown belt to tie it all together.
I would have gone with a slight thicker belt next time (if I owned one) but otherwise, I liked this outfit.
A shot of the tights - they are a mossy green. The ribbon trim on the shoes is also a mossy green. Sorry all my shots are a little blurry...I was up rather late last night.
The fab shoes, and the accessories:
The earrings look 80s era to me. The bracelet is my mom's, liberated from her jewelry box back in about 1984 (I remember wearing it to high school).
The brooch - yes, that is a shovel - has been mine even longer. It's Mom's as well, but I got it when I was about 12 years old. I had this striped tunic top (very 70s) with a low slash neckline - this is in the Days Before Camisoles - and I was very self-conscious about my boobs, so Mom gave me this pin to hold the neckline closed. Honestly, I don't think I have worn this in 30 years.
Off to aikido!
Cardigan (no label, consignment), cami (Esprit), skirt (Suzy Shier), belt (Bianca Nygard), hose (don't recall), shoes (Hale Bob), earrings (gift from Bonnie), bracelet & pin (Mom's, 60s/70s vintage). Is it just me, or is anyone else freaked out that 60s & 70s are now vintage??
