Woo, what a week! I'm glad it's over, but now I'm feeling the crunch of Christmas right around the corner. Thank goodness I've been distracted by....
Invasion of Dress Week!
I saved a new dress for last - I got this dress at Winners last Friday for $59.99:
jean jacket that I got in NYC a few years ago.
Here's a better look at the dress:
I added some tough details, like the grommet belt and my studded leather wrist cuff.
It has a gold zipper up the back:
Tsubo Acreas. I liked the lacy tights - they remind me of ants climbing up my legs, hee hee.
Dress (Calvin Klein), skirt (Noa Noa), tights (Esprit), belt (gift from Ruth), cuff (vintage 80s), shoes (Tsubo Acrea), coat (Planet, consignment), hat (Roberta's Hats), gloves (Club Monaco, consignment), scarf (Danier Leather, thrifted), bag (fake Tod's, thrifted).
Right after work, I had to rush home and feed the cats. I changed up my outfit a bit before I caught the bus back downtown to join L at his work Christmas party.
|You're not going out again, are you?|
And I changed into more festive outerwear:
Dress (Calvin Klein), tights (Esprit), belt (vintage 80s, thrifted), shoes (Guess), earrings (Jacob), bracelet (Birks, vintage 70s, Mom's), jacket (Le Chateau, consignment), clutch and gloves (Accessorize), scarf (Danier Leather, thrifted).
Today was spent on very pleasant things: shopping for myself, shopping for L, my mom and my nieces and having lunch with my wonderful Winesday Women!
Christie! She'd won a prize in my October Wardrobe Challenge, and I sent her this skirt. Today, she sent me a cardigan and a denim skirt, along with a lovely card. I'll be wearing the items this week! Thanks so much, Christie!
Did you notice the crazyass tights up there? They have silver threads that make the pattern, so they're quite sparkly! I got them at Winners for $7.99.
That's my 40th birthday dress (2nd outfit) that I've had for ages (coincidently, another Winners purchase back then). I don't know if I'll ever give it up; it's so comfortable.
Of course, if I had yellow legs, I had to wear my yellow jacket!
Dress (Max Studio), tights (Emilio Cavallini), boots (Aldo, consignment), jacket (Danier Leather), scarf (Danier Leather, thrifted), gloves (Parkhurst), bag (Licence), jewelry set (Shi Studio)
Hope your weekend is going great!
