As someone so thoughtfully reminded me, the solstice is coming and soon it will start to get lighter in the morning. But for now...
This is my lovely hand-sewn sequin and beaded skirt that I bought back here in July for $19.99 at The Patch (there's a much better picture of it in natural light at that link). It's by Beaded Drama (hee hee) and it's from the 80s. I got a lot of compliments on it today - it really sparkled up the office!
I'm wearing my lovely grey wool boots again, last seen here on Friday (2nd outfit) with my mullet coat and green dress. I have purple tights on, which are visible in the top photo.
here with a red plaid skirt) for $38 at My Sister's Closet. I wore it again in January 2011 for my very first WW meeting as a leader...and I think that's it! Wow, I'm really shocked. Of course, it's a fall/winter only item, but to have this amazing basic in my wardrobe (in a neutral) and to not even wear it!
This sweater is the reason I did this year-long capsule challenge: to rediscover some of the basics in my wardrobe, and to get more wear out of the superb quality items I do have.
Off to WW!
Sweater (Land's End, consignment), skirt (Beaded Drama), boots (Prepare Volunteers, Fluevog), necklace (consignment), earrings (Le Chateau).
Shiny! Navy is such an underrated color imo. I love both shots of the skirt, but how cool are those sparkles in the second one! Wowza!ReplyDelete
I don't wear my 'basics' enough. I've been working on it.
I am all for daytime sparkles!ReplyDelete

It may be dark, but you glow. The boots and the skirt are 'killer.'ReplyDelete
