Whew, another late night and I am just beat. Is the weekend here yet? No?
This is actually what I wore all day. I'm a little pit-sy and this shirt shows it, so I kept the jacket on. I liked how the cropped fit offset the fullness of the skirt and framed the tie. I had tons of compliments on the outfit, although while running an errand, some guy (in paint-spattered clothes; no sartorial splendour there) felt that he had to comment that my glasses don't match my outfit.
What? You mean purple's not a neutral? Gee, thanks.
Anyway, I liked this outfit a lot too, and loved wearing the tie all day. The jacket is my wonderfully buttah-soft Danier Couture leather one, last seen here in August with striped pants.
here in February (yikes!) with a backless dress (and a tie!).
here last month.
here in April with studs.
And yes, the dudes at work were very impressed with my tie!
Jacket (Danier Couture, consignment), shirt (Club Monaco, consignment), skirt (Hourihan, thrifted), boots (Prepare Guides, Fluevog), belt/buckle (Shi Studio), tie (Tommy Hilfiger, was L's), cufflinks (vintage, L's), spinner ring (local), death star ring (Stone Roses), earrings (don't recall).
I haven't worn a watch in decades, but I got it in my head that I needed a watch. I don't have a cell phone, iPhone, iPad, laptop or other device which tells time (that part is incidental to not having a device - I choose to be unconnected except for this blog and email). I'm a bit of a control person and details person and a watch exacerbates those qualities in me, and can cause me anxiety, but I'm feeling the need to have one.
I looked around at The Bay department store - nothing really grabbed me, and I had a bit of sticker shock (this comes from thrifting everything). I remembered that I walk past a little mom & pop watch repair place every day, and decided to check there. I'd rather give a small local business my money anyway.
This is what I found!
