And right back on that horse we go, swapping out things that don't work quite right for things that do.
- Blouse - Le Chateau, thrifted; last seen here (4th outfit) in March for our anniversary trip to Vancouver
- Skirt - J. Crew, thrifted; last worn here in September 2015 with much shiny
- Shoes - Irregular Choice "I Know"; gift from Louise this past weekend, and worn here as well
- Jacket (below) - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last worn a couple of times on the weekend here
I loved this blouse in the March capsule - it's really a nice colour and cut, and I like the faux leather trim and the snap detail on the arms and back.
here - aside from the above link) I really struggled with what to wear with it. I tried it with peach, cream and gold. Not very imaginative.
When I looked at it last night, while deciding what skirt to pull into my capsule, I immediately started putting it with the blues and greens and pinks that are dominating my colours right now. And look at that. It works! I loved it with this bright saturated blue.
I wore my fluffy coat again as outerwear.
here (YouTube short clip) for a refresher.
I saw the original movies when I was 9, 12 and 15. In this movie, the romance between Han and Leia captured my 12-year-old heart, and because we didn't have VCRs then - it was well over a decade before I finally saw the movies again - I owned (and still own) the paperback version.

As you can see, I've had my copy for a long time. I am no longer much of a Garfield fan.
I haven't read this book in years, and I am nonplussed that it does not have the famous line, Han's cocky "I know." What the?
Edit: Thanks to reader Gai for informing me that Harrison Ford ad-libbed the "I know" line and it worked so well they kept it. This book was based on the story/screenplay, so this is how it was originally supposed to be (and I like it just as much as the classic line).

- Earrings - thrifted
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
It's so amazing that a piece of clothing can give you so much happiness.
Hans Solo's famous line was an unscripted, of-the-moment Harrison Ford creation. It worked, so they kept the take.ReplyDelete
That's awesome, thanks, gai!Delete
I am completely gaga for your fluffy coat too....ReplyDelete
Love the shoes. I took my children to see the Star Wars movies first time around!
Like the minty (?) green and rich blue together - beautifully echoed on your earrings.
Have a great weekend!
How cool that you have the book! I had never seen a copy.ReplyDelete
Of course you know I love the shoes and I totally agree on how garments can make your day.
Wow, I don't even remember the Star Wars story, if you can believe it. Shameful! I like that you have the book. Yes, this colour combo looks great together. Glad your shoes were a Topic at work - there are too good to go unnoticed.ReplyDelete
The green skirt is so lovely and I'm glad you found a great top to wear with it. I can imagine that your shoes would have caused quite a stir, as they so rightly ought to. Am afraid I'm not much of a Star Wars fan, but enjoy the merits of these shoes none the less xReplyDelete
