Ah, Monday, my longtime foe.
*ahem* And here's my outfit for today:
All new pieces in the mix for this month's challenge: the jacket, the thin sweater, the midi-skirt and the leopard flats. I've had the sweater (3rd outfit) for a couple of years, and I wear this skirt a lot. I wish I had just done plain nude fishnets with this as the paisley tights were a little much with the leopard shoes.
I had to throw in quite a few neutrals in order to have lots of options to go with all the colour in my 30 items this month. I've done only 6 bottoms (5 skirts, 1 pair of jeans), but 16 tops, sweaters and jackets. Those tend to be the things I have run out of in past capsule wardrobe challenges. I'm sure I will get sick of the same 6 bottoms pretty quickly.
Anyway, moving on...the jacket is new-to-me:
I found the blazer at a local thrift store at the same time as my Burberry white shirt. What a day for scores! However, I did not pay $5.00 for this jacket:
The brand is David Findlay which is apparently a Canadian company; the blazer is made in Canada and it is lovely quality. When I was in the same store with Lorinda she spotted the matching lined wool/silk trousers. They fit like a dream except that they were miles too long, but you know what? I don't wear suits, I rarely wear pants, and I am supremely lazy and would not get them hemmed. It would have been a waste of the $3.00 to buy them.
Jacket (David Findlay, thrifted), sweater (Kersh), skirt (Precis Petite, thrifted), belt (Club Monaco), necklace (vintage 20s/30s, gift from L), earrings (Plum), shoes (The Bay).
The cats did not like me taking "stuff" pictures before I fed them.
They wrestle silently. It's very unnerving.
