Pearl Tie, Matchy Hair and Pouffy Butt

I was lazy in planning my outfit last night, so I had to do some scrambling in the morning. It really helps speed things along when you know what you're wearing. 
Lack of planning often means a crazy outfit - like this one!

  • Shirt - Banana Republic, thrifted; last worn here in November 2015 with all the studs
  • Skirt - Quilaree, consignment; last seen here in November 2015 with Lacroix and red boots
  • Shoes - Miista; last seen here in December 2015 with rad green

It's getting lighter in the mornings! This was my view when taking the stair picture.
There's a crappy-looking movie being advertised right now, called "The Boy" (it looks like a horror movie) and it was obviously filmed at Craigdarroch Castle up there.

Anyway, back to the bizarro outfit. I built it around the pearl tie - so had to wear a button-up shirt. Of course, we must match the hair. Everyone loves it when I match my clothes to my hair.
I liked the pouffy skirt...but then needed something at the waist - the stomacher will do.
Then shoes! It's Monday and I knew I'd have to walk to the other office to take a new employee to his desk, so no heels for me. Menswear shoes in the form of my trout shoes, and oh heck, let's wear these little socklet things and take to 11, shall we?

The stuff:
I love these shoes. So, so much.

Pearly bling:
The tie got a lot of positive comments - the overall outfit in general was well-liked, but mostly by my male colleagues.

  • Stomacher - InWear
  • Belt - Plum
  • Tie necklace - thrifted
  • Earrings - Aldo Accessories

This morning as I was leaving, I did my usual check to make sure Vizzini wasn't trapped in a closet or in the library. There he was, having what looks like a serious conversation with the mousie.
"Do you mind? My deputy and I are having a de-brief."
I'm sure mousie received a mauling after I left.


  1. So here it is then, the pearl tie making its shy debut! It may have been a rushed effort, but I like it. Shirt to match hair - check. Poufee skirt with belt - check. Divine metallic flats - check. Cutest ankle socks - check. Stud pearl earrings - check. Yep, it's all good honey x

  2. Such a cool outfit! That beaded tie is all kinds of fabulous. I super want one of my own now, too. :)
