Happy Weekend! I hope everyone's having a great time.
I have had a very busy weekend so far. On Friday night, I hosted a "Swap & Sip" at my office. I work for an IT consulting business; out of 150 people in my office, there are only 35 women. Most of them don't know each other that well, so what better than a clothing swap, some wine and nibblies for all the women to get acquainted?
I did casual, but wore clothes for trying things on.
The shirt is my denim button-down, last worn here, back in March 2011! I also wore it here in August 2010, and here in June 2010. I must have bought it some time around then - I picked up on a consignment clearance rack for less than $10, I recall.
The cowboy boots were purchased back in December for $32.99 on consignment. I last wore them here in January. And yeah, I'm wearing striped socks with them instead of tights, heh.
Here's the pattern screened on the bottom side hem:
Dress (Garden State, Smoking Lily), shirt (Mexx, consignment), belt (thrifted), boots (Two Roads, consignment).
I took two bags of stuff to the Swap & Sip (which was a great success, thanks for asking). I got 3 items back. I'm pretty fussy - I'm not going to take anything unless I really like it.
I got this coral Alfani top:
But the real score were these Airwalk sneakers:
Aren't they awesome? And they've never been worn - they were still in the box! Good thing I'm the only size 9 1/2 in my office!
On Saturday, I got up early to go work Reception at the early WW meeting:
This is my emerald green striped Banana Republic sweater. It's a cashmere blend - got it for $11 out thrifting in April 2011 (only worn once, here, scroll down).
That's my thrifted Desigual skirt, last seen here. This is only the second wear for it as well. See? All these great things in my closet and I never wear them! This is one of the reasons I'm doing this year-long challenge: what do I love enough to fit into a 30-item capsule?
Second wear of my Prepare Guides (last time here). Yes, a repeat item already - I adore these shoes. Holy smokes, they are the most comfortable shoes ever!
Jacket (Le Chateau, consignment), sweater (Banana Republic, thrifted), skirt (Desigual, thrifted), shoes (Prepare Guides, Fluevog).
After Ulty, we went for lunch (more showing off of the shoes, hee), then I had a nap, and then Winesday was at my house. Woo, a very late night! Much fun was had by all.
I got a kick out of the label on one of the bottles of wine:
