I went shopping this weekend and hit all my favourite consignment stores, so there will a parade of new-to-me items all week. Today: this gorgeous skirt, these fab shoes and one of the necklaces.
The skirt is Alfred Sung and is likely early 80s (it's a size 12, which is a dead giveaway, since I'm usually in the 4 to 8 range - amazing how sizing has changed!). It was a steal at $40.
I've been keeping my eye out for a neutral "nude" shoe that had some funk to it - this pair fit the bill perfectly...and would you believe, they are never worn! Never worn! I'm flabbergasted! But I know exactly why: they are labeled size 8, but they would be huge on a real size 8. I'm anywhere from a large 8.5 to a 10 in shoes and my feet have plenty of room in these. I bet someone bought them and discovered they were way too big. They even still had the box and the shoe bag! They were $45.
Oh, here I am examining the goose egg on my knee from whacking it on the ice:
You can see the shape of the heel of the shoe well there.
The necklace with the green stones is Mom's, from the early 60s, I think. The other double-strand necklace is new - it has a key, a lock and a heart on it. It also had that big silver locket, but it made such a racket, I took it off.
By the way, I am still going to do the "what I eat" post, but maybe not till later in the week. I am just swamped right now with work...
