Oh, it's been a long day...and tomorrow will be longer. However, I'm staying positive with the power of green culottes!
|I stair, and stare|
I also liked how they adapted to the Spring "long over long" looks that are popular now, and the wide-legged cropped pant trend. Yeah, I already got that covered! I don't need to buy anything new. And you know I found these in the vintage section of the thrift store, right? Of course I did! I found them for $4.00 (shame my shoddy memory - I was bragging about paying $7.50 for them!) back in April 2013 (here) and wore them five times last spring/summer, including the last time here with orange other and Major 80s colours.
The sequined top is one that I bought new just over 3 years ago when our local Plum store closed. It's by Dex.
here (last outfit) in August with my purple silk flutter maxi skirt. After some research, it appears I thrifted it for $3.00 back here (last outfit) in September 2011. I guess I have gotten good cost-per-wear out of it. I don't really care that this style of cardi is "out" - it serves a very useful purpose and allows me to have arm coverage (for sun and the buh-byes) and to wear a cool sleeveless top like this one to work.
I can never resist doing the MC Hammer pants pose with these culottes:

here with pouffy, copper and leather in March.
Cardigan (Alternative Apparel, thrifted), top (Dex), culottes (Jac Dale, thrifted), shoes (Ramon Tenza, thrifted), bangle (thrifted), earrings (Plum), ring (vintage 70s, Mom's).
Tomorrow will be a long day for me, so I might not have a post up, but I will for Friday for sure. And don't forget: Shoe Shine starts on Saturday!
Fabulous culottes - the best of both worlds!ReplyDelete
The splendor of the culottes! I really like your long over long silhouette. xoReplyDelete
The culottes are beautiful on you! And they really do look like a skirt sometimes, I'm not surprised you had to show off that they were pants! :)ReplyDelete
You look just like the genie I keep wishing will come out of my bottle. Boy, have I got three wishes!ReplyDelete
Yes, those culottes are still fab, they are every time you wear them! Gorgeous earrings too. xxxReplyDelete
They are pretty awesome! I don't know that I could pull them off because I'm kind of short, but they look amazing on you!ReplyDelete
Palazzo pants? they are spectacular!ReplyDelete
