I was inspired by Sal's wonderful black pants yesterday. Mine are a very dark brown crepe and were only $35 (regular $89). I love the vintage-y Katherine Hepburn vibe of wide trousers, don't you?
I played that up with the (actual) vintage blouse that I've worn several times - the last time was here, when I actually wore the exact same top, jacket, belt and knee-highs. Gee, ya think I like this combo?
My toenails are in their winter state of nakedity so I had to wear the knee-highs. They smell funny (the knee-highs, not my toes), like perfume-y. It's weird, the smell hasn't washed out - it's like they were made to smell that way. Since I wear no fragrance at all, it's disconcerting to have scent wafting up to me from my feet.
Since it's still pretty mild out, I just wore my silk tweed jacket as my outerwear:
Awesome shoes - had those for about 4 years now. Check out the great vintage pattern on the blouse. It reminds me of curtains my grandmother had in her craft room when I was a kid.
A close-up of the shiny bits:
I really like that necklace - very swoopy and swirly. I wore yellow earrings to go with the stones in it (see them? they blend in).
Oh, and if you love bright colours like I do, please go see how Kristen has styled her bright yellow sweater "a la Sheila". Love it!
