Woo, it's Wednesday! I worked late again (L is also still at work) and I haven't eaten, so forgive me if I zoom through this a bit.
This is my wonderful Etro jacket (a real haute couture brand, very chi-chi, dontcha know), last seen here in September 2013. My coworker Debbie has claimed it when I'm tired with it. There are very few things that really have staying power in my wardrobe, and eventually, I will pass this blazer along to her. It's not a perfect cut on me: one button + my boobular region = not a great fit in the chestal area. It's meant for someone not as curvy as me.
here). I think I have actually worn it under things and not listed it since it wasn't visible.
The skirt is the bottom half of my fabulous early 60s vintage suit, first worn here in early December 2013. I loved wearing the skirt on its own, so much that I'm actually going to put my burgundy suede Danier skirt into the giveaway pile! Its zipper snagged my tights/nylons anyway.
here in November 2013 when I was being a burgundy and purple pirate (yar).
Blazer (Etro, consignment), sweater (Hawick of Scotland, consignment), skirt (Hettermark, W&J Wilson, thrifted), boots (Miz Mooz), necklace (homegrown vintage, gift from Mom and Dad), cuff/earrings (Mom's, vintage 60s), spinner ring (Twang & Pearl), ring (POLY, thrifted).
So, outfit planning. Last night before bed I pulled the sweater to layer under the blazer. My other options were my white ruffled blouse and my cream satin ruffled blouse, but I'm tired (too many late nights working) and the sweater is less fussy than either blouse. Sweater it is!
And there's my necklace/earrings laid out ready for me in the morning.
Love this outfit! Dying over those burgundy boots and that Etro jacket - what a find! What a shame about the jacket fit as it is a stunning jacket - that's one lucky coworker.ReplyDelete
