Golden Girly-Girl

If I look a trifle ruffled here, it is because I walked to work in the rain and walked home in the wind. And I forgot to comb my hair.
I love this skirt and really wanted to wear it this week - I feel very girly and swirly in it. And these shoes (despite not being flats) are supremely comfortable. When you have contraints, you have to work within them.

The stuff:
My wonderful Art Deco necklace (yes, it is vintage 1920s/30s - L paid a lot for it from an antique shop), and 1950s clip-on earrings.

Jacket (Final Touch, thrift), cami (InWear), skirt (Nine West), shoes (Unlisted), belt (forgotten already, the Bay), necklace (vintage, gift from L), earrings (vintage).


  1. Wedges are a great compromise. And I just love you in earth tones, beautiful.

  2. Don't worry, the wind blown look is so sexy :D

    I was oogling your jewelry. Beautiful pieces!

  3. You look smashing today. Sal is right; earth tones are beautiful on you. This outfit is a total hit!

    I am lusting after your necklace. I love art deco jewlery!

  4. I always thought it was sexy too to be fully put together with rumpled hair. I don't really have a choice with the curly locks I have.

    Love the skirt. That necklace is so special, and the color is outstanding!

  5. Gorgeous! Love the skirt and jacket...the idea of which I may just steal... And of course, I'm in love with your shoes :)

  6. The necklace is absolutely superb. What a treasure to build outfits around! Thanks for displaying it so well. B

  7. Thanks, eednic!

    Aw, you're so sweet, Sal. Thanks!

    Sher, too kind, too kind. I love the jewelry too - thanks.

    Tina, thank you so much. I love Art Deco too - but it's so hard to find reasonably priced pieces.

    Alison - thanks! I always wanted curly hair.

    Thanks, Kaylyn! Please feel free to copy - the shoes are one of my faves.

    Thanks, Bonnie! You actually got to see it in person, lucky you.
