Woo, it's Thursday, and I'm taking a long weekend, so I won't be back until Monday. Quelle drag, I know, but you'll manage.here, 2nd outfit).
We start out with the brown skirt, featuring very crazy "long monkey arm pockets" as my co-worker Gord called them.
|Blown-out colour so you can see draping and details.|
The jacket is by Le Chateau and is one I coveted on a friend several years ago, then finally spotted on consignment in late January/early February 2011 where I bargained it down from $50 to $40 (because I'm a good customer, and it doesn't hurt to ask). I first wore it here for a one-week wardrobe challenge in Feburay 2011 (there's a good picture there if you scroll down of the embroidery on the front).
Since then, I've worn it in April 2011 (with a full purple skirt), then in November 2011 with a whole lot of orange and some teal, and lastly in December 2011 with the long black skirt from this month's capsule and some boots that I miss (although they killed my feet and were too high).
In summary: this jacket = da bomb.
The green top I'm wearing underneath is new-to-me, thrifted back in September (here, scroll down) for $20.50.
Stuff on a shelf:
FYI, the "socks" that everyone was exclaiming about yesterday aren't socks. They are knee-high tights aka trouser socks (because knee-highs sound like something your grandma wears). Not socks. Not knit. Tights. Only knee-high. The brand is Sox Trot, but it even says on the packaging "knee highs."
Jacket (Le Chateau, consignment), top (Danier Leather, thrifted), skirt (La Fleur de Mon Secret, consignment), boots (Gabor), wood ring (Dots), amber ring (some junky store), gold hoops (gift from L).
Have a great weekend!
