Casual Friday - Silver and Gold

Revisiting my stalwart casual combo of stripey shirt and graphic tee, and mixing up my metals:
This t-shirt has both silver and gold all over it. Inigo is coming in for a rub.

I wore a jacket over it all day.

Heh, I look barely awake...well, it was 8am when I took that picture. Such an uncivilized hour.

The stuff:

The writing says "Glamour Campaign". Wore my studded leather cuff, my bigass gold hoops and the silver chain with a gold key, silver key and my celtic "S".

Silver and gold always make me start humming a tune from "Rudolph" as sung by this guy:That special started airing on TV 3 years before I was born, and I watched it every year. The Bumble (the Abominable Snowman) used to make me cry and hide my eyes, I'm told. He's still pretty scary.

Rar! I don't care if Bumbles bounce, I was quite happy to have him stay at the bottom of the ravine.

Tonight is Festivus! I'll post my party outfit tomorrow.

Jacket (RW & Co.), striped tee (Majestic, gift from Caro), t-shirt (BCBG Max Azria, consignment), jeans (Esprit), belt (gift from Ruth), boots (Cougar), cuff (old as dirt), hoop earrings (gift from L), assorted charms.


  1. I'm always happy to see people mix metals.

  2. Very cute! I love graphic tees but never seem to be able to make them work for me. I adore how you've paired it with the jacket here; it dresses it up a bit.

    Anyway, I hope you party is fun!


  3. I love the tee with the striped shirt. I'm going to have to try that. I hope you had a great Festivus!

  4. I used to be scared to do it, Wendy, but now I am fearless!

    Thanks, Julia - I love graphic tees, but they have to be just right for me.

    Thanks, Alison - my stripey shirt is one of my favourites!

  5. You match up the tee and the striped shirt better than anyone I know; I think I look like a dork in it, but you look so cool!

    We have 4 ornaments on our tree from that show; my favorite is Hermey.

  6. Thanks so much, Kristen! It's one of my favourite casual looks.

    Ha! How cool is that?

  7. Funky outfit :-) Love it! I've been searching for a stripey top, but can't find just the right thing anywhere!

  8. Thanks, Tat! I was lucky to have this one given to me.
