What a difference half an hour makes. Check it out:
I dragged myself out of bed and went to work - yes, I'm the person who tells people to "GO HOME" when they're sick, but I don't take my own advice. I worked for 5 hours and cleared the decks somewhat; dealt with a lot of things that would have forced me to work late had I shunted them aside for another day. I've been sleeping all afternoon, and have only just come up for air (and food) now.
I felt I needed to distract everyone from the sorryass look on my face with Stripes! and Red Shoes!
here in September 2013, and you can see how I fall back on the same patterns when I'm not putting a lot of effort into my outfits. Same cuff, same belt, mostly same colours. However, when you have a black, red, orange and tan striped cardi, there is only so much you can do with it. At some point when I was feeling useful, I did indeed sew the front button placket shut, so no "hello, here are my boobs!" moments today.
I'm down to $3.00 per wear on the cardigan, since I only paid $6.00 for it. Not bad. I didn't even realize my top and bottom combined were only $13.50 total. Cheapest outfit ever? It just may be.
|I liked how the stripey tights went with this ensemble|
here in early December 2013 with bright green (rather Christmassy).
When I'm feeling weak, I go for tough accessories:
*possibly not true
Sweater (Papell, thrifted), concrete skirt (no label, thrifted), shoes (Marc), belt (Plum), studded cuff (homegrown vintage 80s), leather cuff (Guess, thrifted), ring (Oscar & Libby's), earrings (gift from L).
Sorry you had to go into work when you were sick!ReplyDelete
Your outfit looked great though, even if it wasn't the most comfortable with the skirt coming undone.
I faint for those shoes! xoReplyDelete
The neutral colour of the skirt is fine, paired with some strong shades and pattern, I think, so the stripes and kickass red shoes are the perfect accompaniment. I truly believe that ring does have a laser! xxxReplyDelete
O, hell, I'm terrible for taking my own advice too, and I do the same!!! Poor baby.ReplyDelete
Looking HOT, though, despite being a sickie! Those SHOES!!! Love 'em!
