Hello, my friends! It's been an exhausting weekend, but I'm going into this week with the lovely anticipation of a long weekend next week, followed by a short week after that.
Let's get going, 'cause I'm anxious to go watch "Outlander"! I loved the book.
It was hot and sunny for the game, so I wore this dress unbelted over one of my vintage slips (the dress is fully see-through. Both pieces are wonderful for movement, so this outfit overall looked better in person than in my somewhat rushed pictures.
here in June 2013, more than a year ago. I plan on keeping it, as I love it.
here a couple of weeks ago with trousers.
Dress (Hale Bob), shoes (Modern Vintage, thrifted), earrings (consignment).
We had a great game, and I ran my butt off! After brunch, Karen and I wandered through a couple of thrift stores. At the St. Vincent de Paul, she found a couple of scarves and a Betsey Johnson belt for $2! Great find.
We also went to The Velvet Crease where we both tried on loads of stuff. I found these fabulous Nine West shoes:
They were $28.00.
At the Hospice Thrift Store, I found one of my best scores EVER. I've blown out the contrast and brightness to show the details on this black blazer.
The rounded shoulders end in gathers:
A slightly blurred shot of the fabric in bright sunlight.
The gorgeous burgundy satin lining.
Dries van Noten (wiki)! Holy smokes! His blouses start around $700, with coats going upwards of $2,000 (Barney's New York shopping here, for info only). I looked through all of the galleries of his women's ready-to-wear clothes galleries from 2000 to present here at style.com, but couldn't find this jacket, so it is probably from the late 90s, as I guessed from the fabric.
And how much did I pay for this jacket, that certainly would have cost several hundred dollars?
Full of excitement from my awesome score, but tired from 2.5 hours of shopping, I napped for an hour before getting ready to go to Zeb's divorce party.
Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. Get over there, yourself!
Another dress with wonderful movement. I just purchased this one a week ago here for $22.98.
here (way down at the bottom) with pink plaid.
We walked from town to the party, then after the party, L and I walked home. I am really feeling it today, and am in dire need of some couch time!
Silver and aqua bling:
Dress (Nine West, consignment), shoes (Prepare Guide, Fluevog), metal cuff (St. Paul's Cathedral gift shop, London), bangle (local), leather cuff (Shi Studios), spinner ring (consignment), floral ring (Nine West), feather earring/aqua stud (both local).
But wait, something's wrong with this earring!
Vizzini, do you know anything about this?
