Pending my February re-cap (which I will be doing on Saturday), here is my new March capsule wardrobe!
and 7 pairs of shoes:
This is my vintage 80s high-waisted Gianfranco Ferre wool skirt (bought back here in 2009, detail pictures), last worn here in April 2010.
I'm on a non-roll with my tights - yet another pair that popped a hole. However, I've had these for at least a year, so I know I got plenty of wear out of them.
My office was chilly today, so I ended up wearing the olive jacket all day - I last wore it here in September.
Sorry about the colour on this one, but it shows the nice hand-done silkscreen pattern:
The Smoking Lily belt worked perfectly with the top, with its gold moths and the blue lines (gee, it's like they were made by the same company or something). I went with more gold with the big leafy earrings and the chunky chain.
This is the second wear of these shoes that I got via trade-in on consignment back in November (seen here), and unfortunately, they are the first item so far this year to be removed from a capsule due to Condition Issues. I kept feeling little "rocks" inside the shoes all day, and when I finally examined them, I found that the side leather seams had split and the material inside that was holding the sides up rigid was disintegrating.
Jacket (RW & Co., consignment), blouse (Smoking Lily), skirt (Gianfranco Ferre, vintage 80s, thrifted), belt (Smoking Lily, consignment), shoes (Marina Luna, consignment), bracelet (Club Monaco), earrings (Plum)
Yea, I see my fave boots! Can't wait to see all your March goodiesReplyDelete
Eee! You got one of the 'bug' shirts. I love the insect prints of Smoking Lily. One of these days I want to buy one of their bee skirts. I love the flies though. It's creepy in the best way.ReplyDelete
So sorry about the shoes! I had that happen to my favorite yellow flats awhile back. Never found a replacement for them.
Loving this outfit - and that this capsule has a different colour pallet - looking forward to watching it unfold :-)ReplyDelete
The silk blouse is indeed fab, as is that killer skirt. And I love the colors you've chosen for the month, it should be a lot of fun!ReplyDelete
That blouse is made of awesome! Too bad about the shoes but now you can replace them with something else funky.ReplyDelete
I love the Fluevogs you chose. Are those the same teapots I have but in burgundy?
Agreed, Megan! Yes, those are the Sencha Teapots - I just love them, although these ones are getting beat up from me wearing them so much!Delete
I love the outfit , classy all the way a great combination ! DonnaReplyDelete
I am such a fan of that top. The color and the fly print are just too appealing :)ReplyDelete
I'm sorry about the shoes - what you describe is what usually happens to my bags :(
When I saw that shirt I was like, "Oh man, oh man, oh man, pleeeaaassee, let there be a close up!" Okay so they weren't bees, (I have a thing for Napoleon's bees), but hey, the flies are the next best thing. That shirt is AWESOME. High five on scoring that one!ReplyDelete
Oh yeah and a moment of silence for the shoes. : (ReplyDelete
I am amazed the top was only $15! what a great deal, congrats! :) It's beautiful.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing how you wear all your capsule pieces this month :)
Very pretty outfit. Do you think you could put some adhesive moleskin on the inside of the shoes to enable you to keep wearing them? They are so pretty.ReplyDelete
Are you pre-selecting the jewelry for your challenge? I noticed the color theme in the first photo. this blouse is beautiful.ReplyDelete
Love this--i love your capsule color scvheme!!ReplyDelete
