Casual Friday - Purple Graphic

Friday's here! Woo! And don't I look pleased?
Okay, not so much, but it's very early in the morning in that picture (nearly 8 am! shocking!).

Maybe I look displeased because I know that when I go shopping after work at Winners with my $60 gift card from the Winesday Women and can buy whatever I want (!!) I actually find NOTHING at all. Well, some tights, but they are not that exciting, nor are they forbidden to me like new shoes or a dress would have been.

Anyway, the long-sleeved purple top was acquired in my recent consignment store shop. Nice and soft, and good for layering. I thought it went well with my Plum anniversary graphic tee.

My outdoor wear was kind of fun:
Grey fuzzy beret, fingerless gloves (aside: I had purple wooly fingerless gloves in 1984. Oh yeah, I was rockin'!), corporate swag leather jacket (it has our coporate logo embossed on one sleeve, very small - you wouldn't know it was there).

No stuff picture - it wasn't that exciting. Have a great weekend!

Long-sleeved tee (Gilmour, consignment), graphic tee (Plum), skirt (Bebe Sport, swap), shoes (Be Wild, consignment), chainmail necklace (handmade), white gold hoop earrings (gift from L).


  1. I hope that the funeral for your friend went okay.

    Your corporate swag beats anything I've got from various jobs! My dad got a leather jacket as a service gift, but he had been with his company for a long time.

    Maybe you will find something next time at Winners. (Is it a thrift shop? I wonder if my friends in your area know of it.)

  2. Thanks, Kari - it was two hours of pictures and reminiscences. Heartbreaking. Over 500 people were there.

    I saved my company a lot of money so got to raid the "treasure chest" - sweet!

    Winners is a department store that sells brand names but at discount prices. I had my eye on some Nine West booties, but they were too close to what I already had. I added a link in the post to the Winners site.

  3. You're a good sport to be photographed so early in the morning.

  4. I so love that skirt. Very cool freebie jacket too!

  5. I hate it when you have the cash but cna't fina nything. I hope the day went better for you.

  6. Super cute outfit! I love the graphic tee paired with the's very jcrew :) And can I just say that I LOVE those gloves and that jacket!!

  7. Wendy, I take my own pictures (hurray for timers!), so not much of a sport at all!

    Me too, Alison. The jacket I actually did pay a small amount for ($75) - it was sold as part of a charity auction. The corporate logo is undetectable.

    Yeah, it's so frustrating! It did, Jane, thanks so much.

    FA, thanks! I don't think I have ever been in a JCrew store.
