Yay yay yay! My red is back! I feel like myself again. Lots of compliments today (and surprise by newer coworkers who'd never seen me red).
Have you figured out my week's theme yet?
Another neutral outfit for me! The top half is a repeat of this outfit from the all-neutral November 2012 capsule (recap here), where I wore this sweater 4 times and the jacket twice. The shoes are my lovely Pearl Hart Bellevilles, featured in the April capsule (recap here) 4 times.
The skirt is one I've had for ages. I bought it at Plum new in 2010 - it's made in Canada - for $35.00 on sale. It's unlined and is cotton with a titch of Spandex, so it causes major Tight Creep when I do tights.
Here's how I've worn it before:
- July 2010 with emerald green and Manolos
- August 2010 with pink and Fluevogs
- October 2010 with cream and teal
- July 2011 with marigold cashmere
I think it was packed away with summer clothes as of September 2011 due to the no-tights issue, and then it sat in my closet patiently waiting for a summer capsule to fit in...and alas, it never made it in a 2012 outfit. And now here we are in 2013. Where does the time go?
|Eeep, my slip is showing|
My inclination now is to keep it. It's got pockets, I love the pattern, it's a great neutral. I think I need to do some more colour with it - I can't believe I've never worn it with red or turquoise!
I didn't do a "stuff" picture as I'm dashing off to Book Club shortly, but I'm wearing a long necklace (fair trade, thank you, Mom!) done up shorter and gold hoop earrings.
Jacket (Alison Wonderland, consignment), sweater (Hawick of Scotland, consignment), skirt (Plum), shoes (Pearl Hart Bellevilles, Fluevogs), necklace (gift from Mom).
We have two parties to go to this weekend, so I'll be doing an update on Sunday - happy almost-Friday!
