Happy June! And welcome to the first couple of days of rockin' the neutrals!
Without further ado, here's Friday's outfit.
This is my new-to-me leopard cardigan that I bought on the same weekend as these silver gladiator sandals I'm wearing, in early May (here). The cardigan was $15.98 and the shoes were $19.00.
I added a pop of colour with a red camisole. None of my camisoles count as items in any of the capsules, as they are strictly layering pieces. If I don't wear an item on its own, it doesn't count, period.
here). They're Noa Noa and were purchased on deep discount at Dots for $31.99. I've previously worn them here (June 2010), here (August 2010) and here (3rd outfit) in April 2011. Sadly, I think it has indeed been over a year since I last wore these!
I love the fit of them:
I did both of my black leather rocker cuffs with this look. Neutrals work well with my leather accessories, so I expect I'll be wearing them a fair bit this month.
As it was cold, I also wore my yellow leather jacket - more colour!

Today, I went to my WW meeting in the morning, then did a little bit of shopping, and bought food for the party tonight.
here in April 2010). Dots had one great season of Noa Noa, and I bought most of my pieces then, in the spring of 2010 - this was $19.99. I previously wore it here (July 2010), and here (November 2011). Again, not really getting good cost per wear out of this piece!
Just like with the red camisole, this turquoise one doesn't count. It's not so hard to slip colour in when you wear camis for layering!

This is my wonderful Smoking Lily mullet skirt (the back is about 4 inches longer than the front) that I thrifted here in June 2011 for $9.00. I'm deeply disappointed in myself: I've only worn this once!
It was slightly chilly so I wore my white leather jacket over top.
here) that I bought on consignment in January 2011 for $59 (they were actually new, but I bought them in a consignment store) - I first wore them here in May 2011, and last wore them here (last outfit; they've been in storage since the end of September 2011). They got worn a lot last summer, so they are starting to show some wear and tear. This capsule challenge will probably actually save them for another year, since I'll be only wearing them for this month. Yay!
These are the blue earrings I bought yesterday.

I kind of felt like buying something new for my Wild Card outfit for L's birthday party tonight, but I didn't find anything in the thrift/consignment stores that I went to today that really grabbed me. I did, however, find this completely awesome Tommy Hilfiger jacket for $20.00:
Herb Tarlek (for those of you not old enough to remember "WKRP in Cinncinnati" here's what I'm talking about), but the plaid colours are actually red, pink, pastel blue and mint green - this will fit right into my July capsule!
Anyway, I have a couple of ideas for my party outfit...but we'll see how it goes once I start playing in my closet. Anything could happen!
