Feb 22nd - Outfit #19 - Capsule Day 3 - Blue, Green and Black

A "new" item in the capsule challenge appears: the leather shirt!
I wore it open like a jacket (last seen here). The black skirt (worn yesterday) and the turquoise sweater (last seen here), plus the Fly London shoes, all came together in a nice mix of blue and green - the tights really helped. Unfortunately, I blew a hole in them as soon as I arrived at work. Oh well, they were saggy anyway.

I finally - after 19 outfits in February so far! - had someone at work comment that I'd worn this skirt before. Yup, four times this month so far!
My coffee supplier delivery guy said it looked like I could smuggle things in the pouf. Ha!

The belt makes for accessory number 4 - one slot left for something else. I liked the blue stripes in it.
I kept up the nature motif of the moths with my Grandma's vintage leaf and twig necklace.

Leather shirt (Danier Leather, thrifted), sweater (Kersh), skirt (Morena, consignment), shoes (Fly London), belt (Smoking Lily, consignment), necklace (Lisner, vintage 50s, Grandma J).

  1. Love the leather shirt as an open jacket. The belt is really fantastic. It took four times for someone to notice? Then again, no one seems to notice when I get new glasses, I think people aren't as perceptive as we assume they are.

  4. Oh I love this one! Too bad those tights blew out; the skirt was a perfect fit for those tights.

  5. Love the blue and green together! :)

    How funny you've worn the skirt 4 times this month and only now someone notices!

    I worry too much over what to wear sometimes, it's good to know most people don't notice! ;)

  6. Why did I just notice the teal in your hair? Gorgeous! I've been threatening to get a purple streak but am not sure how they will feel about it at the law office! Love the outfit, too!

    You are going to get your money's worth out of that leather shirt I think!!
