Monday, Monday, la la...
Well, there's lots to cover today, so let's get a move on.here, yesterday, 3rd outfit) has been so good to me this month. Into the drycleaning bag it goes!
This awesome silk top (last worn here, 2nd outfit) is so beautiful - I'm going to miss it.
here) has proven that you can wear leather in the summer! The shoes (last seen here) are fabulous, but we bid them a fond adieu until next spring.
I'm also wearing a new pair of earrings, but we'll get to those in a bit.
Don't forget to check out Visible Monday at Patti's "Not Dead Yet Style"!
Jacket (Banana Republic, thrifted), top (Le Chateau, thrifted), skirt (Co & Eddy, thrifted), shoes (Poetic License).
I'm really excited to get into my August wardrobe. Seriously, I feel like a kid in a candy store at the end of every month! What will I wear? Ooh, the possibilities!
The lovely Lorinda of Everyday Endeavours gave me one of her beautiful postcards yesterday:
I recovered the camera last night from L and took pictures of all my loot that I found while Lorinda and I were out. We both had good luck at the jewelry counter at WIN (pictures of the Women in Need thrift store here, from February).
I found these gold-filled earrings for only $7.50. I pulled one off the card so you can see how they just slide on.
Isn't the necklace amazing? It was also $7.50 - there are no marks on it or anything, but it has nice weight and lays nicely on. I like the multi-tones of gold/brass and the large scrolly shapes. Very me.
I found this fabulous periwinkle blue linen maxi skirt for $12.50. Its label has been removed, but it's fully lined and feels wonderful.
I completely and utterly fell in love with this skirt:
I also nabbed this fantastic double vest:
This was my major score of the day. I am so excited to wear this dress, I might not be able to save it for my December capsule!
Just feeling it, you know it's quality. It's by Robin Jordan and was only $18.50. That's insane. It had to have sold for close to $200 originally, I'm sure.
I always check out the accessory section, and was rewarded with this autumnal-toned silk scarf:
From WIN, we headed over to The Velvet Crease. Lorinda really cleaned up there - she got a fantastic INC drapey top and the most gorgeous shift dress in brown and cream. Lorinda, you have to wear that to the next Art Gallery event!
I did pretty good myself, scoring this lovely red dress:
I am sticking to my resolve to try to get more good quality basic items! I found this simple reversible V and scoop necked sweater for $16.00.
What do you think? What's your favourite of yesterday's items?
While you mull that over, here's a sneak peak at August's capsule wardrobe! The clothing:
