Rhinestones at Work

Today's outfit was built around the necklace. I haven't had it that long - maybe a couple of years? - but I can't remember where I got it. Was it a gift? It's not Mom's...maybe I bought it? Honestly, I don't know. But I know I've never worn it.

It's not like you can wear rhinestones every day (well, I guess I could, but then people might think I'm even more eccentric - and many already think that!), so I kept the rest of the outfit down to a dull roar.
I usually test out my whacky poses in my closet mirror to see how they look. I was feeling very James Bond.
I love these wide-legged plaid pants. As you may have noticed, I'm really not a pants gal. And this jacket is my new favourite. I just love the cut. Quality!

The stuff:
The shoes are not as orange as they look there, and the blouse is not that greyish.

Jacket (Club Monaco, consignment), blouse (Tristan), cami (Plum), trousers (Vero Moda), shoes (Luichiny), necklace (?, vintage).


  1. Love this whole outfit. You really have an awesome shoe collection. Also love the jacket too. I'm looking for a short sleeve version.

  2. You could always say they are orange, it's the "in" color for now ;)

  3. Your poses are too cute!
    (And a great way to get away with rhinestones at work.)

  4. Those are some ferocious shoes ... and I love the rhinestone necklace! So glad you found a way to work it.

  5. that is a lovely necklace and those shoes, well, everyone knows i love shoes so it should come as no surprise that i love these too!

  6. Thanks, Hillary! I am very picky about my shoes - there is not a plain one in the bunch.

    Sher, I guess so, but they are much more of a caramel colour. Besides, when I do orange, it's really orange!

    Kari, thanks!

    Thanks, Sal!

    Eednic, thank you. I know you love shoes - I hope you like today's.
