Today's outfit features the last "fresh" item for this month: this cool crane cardigan:
I bought it on consignment in early July 2009, and first wore it here. If you click through on these "last worn" links below, you'll notice that although I tend to wear the same colours and clothing items with this over and over, there are a bunch of items in these links that I haven't put into capsules yet - and I still have them! Interesting.
I last wore it here in January 2012, just before I started this challenge! I've also previously worn it last December 2011 (I haven't put that skirt in a capsule yet), in May 2011 (with that awesome olive maxi skirt), in January 2011 (2nd outfit), here in Oct 2010 with an awesome houndstooth skirt (haven't seen that in a capsule either), in January 2010 (ooh, haven't worn those shoes yet - good picture of the embroidery on the back), and way back in July 2009 (my hair is so long!)
Instead of going with my predictable matchy shoes, I liked how the Fluevogs (last worn here, 2nd outfit) picked up the brown of the horses in the skirt's pattern.
I have a half-slip under this thin silk skirt - I was nice and warm while I walked to and from work (although my skirt did a full rotation - don't you hate that?). I last wore the skirt here.
I'm having fun rediscovering my outerwear. Behold, the Octo-Coat!
