Yesterday was such a weird day. I met up with L and some friends who'd been on vacation after work. I drank too much wine (after missing lunch) and crashed when I got home. I guess I needed the sleep, though!here), and three fresh items for the capsule.
This orange-y top has beading at the neckline. It's t-shirt material and has lots of room. Very comfy for warm weather, which has finally (finally!) started to smile upon us.
I first wore it here (2nd outfit) last June 2011, thrifted at the Hospice store for $4.50 (with store tags still on it!), and since then just here in August 2011 (last outfit).

first wear). I bought them in Vancouver on a shopping trip with Ruth - they were on sale for about $199. I didn't like them until I put them on, then I was all, "Ooooohhhh....pretty!"
I've worn them a lot: here (March 2009), here (June 2009), here (Aug 2009), here (Oct 2009), here (Dec 2009), here (Jan 2010), here (Aug 2010), here (Nov 2010), here (April 2011). I guess 10 times previously is not all that much, but considering I have over 80 pairs of shoes, I think that's a pretty good average. My cost is down to under $20 per wear! And they are extremely comfortable, even for a 4" heel.
I took some inspiration from the lovely Megan and did pins on my jacket like she often does.
Jacket (Banana Republic, thrifted), top (Jana, thrifted), skirt (Stockerpoint, thrifted), shoes (Listen Up Ivanna, Fluevog), belt/wrist wrap (Club Monaco), gear cuff (SkinzNHydez), crow pin (Raven's Rest Studio), earrings (LA Express, vintage 90s).
Today, I am off to WW then to the field for a game of Ultimate Frisbee! We were on hiatus for a month due to vacations of our main players, so I'm excited to be out playing again.
This sweater is a Liz Claiborne (first worn here in January). I bought it for $14.99 on consignment.
here in January 2011 for $7.00 at the Hospice store. I last wore it in June 2011 (here), and previously here (April 2011).

Hope you have a great weekend!

The buttons on your skirt are so cool! I also love the second outfit, it is so vibrant :-)ReplyDelete
My Sister's closet has some Fleuvogs for sale but I am not sure what size they are...ReplyDelete
enjoy your weekend, I am loving this weather!
I really love the cheapy pin. It's so cute and retro. The denim skirt and the Dex skirt are both fabulous! They stand on their own without needing to fancy of a top.ReplyDelete
The buttons on the skirt are wonderful.
That denim skirt is fantastic! Yea for warm weather! I'm off to the vv boutique this morning to look for lighter tops!! how exciting. have a wonderful weekend. keep up all the fabulous color xxReplyDelete
OOOOOO you look so good in oranges!!! I am totally LOVING both skirts!!ReplyDelete
Seeing your black boyfriend jackets points out a hole in my wardrobe--I need one!!
That second outfit is socute. The colors are so rich and vibrant. You are rocking that button-skirt. I wonder how it would look with your tooled Fluevog boots for a steampunky/western vibe.ReplyDelete
Really like the pins on your blazer in the first outfit and the brights in the second one :)ReplyDelete
I thrifted a liz claiborne knit at the jumble sale I went to the other weekend, couldn't think of how I knew the name and now I realise it must have been from your blog! It's definitely not an aussie brand.
Both skirts are wonderful! I love the big old buttons on the denim.ReplyDelete
Yow! that denim skirt is pure excellence! you wear it so well it takes the sting out of my not being able to do so ;) (if that makes any sense - ha!) i love it with those strappy sandals and second Megan Mae's brilliant idea of the boots!ReplyDelete

Great buttons on the skirt. And I admire your athletic activity!ReplyDelete
That skirt has definitely caught my eye, especially with those awesome buttons! Who would have thought? So unique and wonderful. How odd to have wear weather here at last. I'm confused.ReplyDelete
Fun skirt! I love the buttons on the side!ReplyDelete
Mmmm, yummy long skirt with those cool funky buttons on the side -- I would wear the *heck* out of that. You look fab in orange!ReplyDelete
That printed skirt is gorgeous :)ReplyDelete
