I was in such a good mood all day! It's Friday!
|I like the long chain that dangles from the belt - it's fun to swing|
The top and skirt were both purchased, on consignment, a couple of weekends ago, here. The top was $14.98.
I adore this top - I have liked the shoulder cut-out look since it first came in in the 90s. Seriously, every single woman has lovely shoulders - this hides the "buh-byes" and is so pretty in how it drapes. Comfy comfy too, but sized wonky: a 12 (I am about a US size 8 on top). Always try things on!
It was cloudy and windy this morning, so I wore my red leather coat.
here in May with green culottes, baby!
I realized halfway through the day that two of my accessories were gifts from Mom: my belt and my necklace.
Top (Simpli, consignment), skirt (Nicole Miller, consignment), shoes (Faith Low Reumah, Fluevogs), belt/necklace (gift from Mom), cuff (SkinZnHydez), ring (Twang & Pearl).
L is out for the night, so I decided to treat myself to a quick run through the WIN store after work. I found a couple of gems, including this classic 90s denim chambray dress:
See? In the 90s the sizing changed to closer to today's sizes.
I promise I will not wear it like that. Heh.
I also scored in the lingerie, finding this lovely probably early 80s half-slip:
I always look for one particular brand in vintage lingerie: French Maid Lingerie. It is also a Montreal company, founded prior to the 60s. Today, I scored this gorgeous slip for only $5.50.
I wasn't sure about these but I threw them in my cart anyway. One I got to the fitting room, I knew I had to have them.
And they have these perfect little elastic pieces that keep the leather from rubbing your ankle (a major peeve about sling-backs - ow!), and keep the sling-back from sliding off the heel. Genius.
|They are called the "Slagra" - could you pick a worse name?|
Look how cute they are on:
The WIN store had an extra 25% off everything today, so all of my purchases only came to $26 plus change. Why would I ever shop retail?
Well, off to have some wine and watch a movie! Have a lovely weekend, my friends.
