And I'm Back in Black!

Well, Sal, I enjoyed the 2010 Summer Black-Out, but it was time to have a little black come back (and it's the only black this week, so that's not so bad, right?).

I also haven't done my personal laundry for a while, so I've been digging in the closet for stuff that is clean (I save up my good pieces and do a big load of delicates every few weeks):
I actually really wanted to wear these cropped pants that I've had for ages. I got the lime green suede Mary Janes on the weekend (Circa Joan & David for $6! Score!) and they just cried out for a little Audrey pant.

I felt very 50s/60s in this outfit.
I'm doing the twist. Sort of.

The stuff:
I just so happened to have these lime green wood earrings - and they went so well!

A close-up:
Two of my "souvenir" jewelry pieces: the ring from Scotland and the bracelet from St. Paul's in London.

Cardigan (Vero Moda), paisley top (Ann Taylor, consignment), cami (Vero Moda), pants (Focus 2000), shoes (Circa Joan & David, thrifted), earrings (Le Chateau), bracelet (St. Paul's Cathedral gift shop), ring (Scotland).


  1. Capri pants make me think of Mary Tyler Moore on the Dick Van Dyke show.

  2. Gorgeous shoes for a great price! I love the capri pants.

    I totally do the same thing with special wash items. Keep them all in a separate bag until i have enough for a load

  3. Just love the mary janes ;-) Awesome look

  4. I adore this look !
    It does remind me of Audrey Hepburn.
    I have to say that YOU SCORED with those shoes.

  5. Sheila, I forgot to ask... what is a beeline ?

  6. Hahaha. Welcome back, black! You look awesome in this kicky outfit, Sheila.

  7. Utterly delicious ,and just my era lol Jan xx

  8. Wendy, oh gosh, yes! I love her.

    Megan, thanks! Yeah, I have a big pile in the bedroom. I'm so bad, lol.

    Wendy, thanks!

    Thanks, Lorena - I love the shoes. I answered your question in today's post.

    Thanks, Sal - and no more black for the rest of the week!

    Thanks, Tina!
