One of my favourite people in the blogosphere is Lorena of My Every Day Wear, who I've known since around 2008/2009. Like me, she posts nearly every day, almost every outfit. She's constantly trying new things, and pushing herself to experiment with what's in her wardrobe.
- Blouse - St. Michael, vintage 80s, thrifted; purchased here on the weekend for $9.95
- Skirt - J. Crew, thrifted; last worn here in August 2016 with browns
- Shoes - Garden of Enjoyment, Rita, Fluevog; last seen here a year ago in June 2016 (and yes, I did ruin/shrink that dress when I washed it)
- Jacket (below) - Lazy Susan's; last seen here in May over birds and velvet
I love this minty-green skirt. It is covered in pearly gold circles - that's what the shine is.
Outerwear. It is warm, but still chilly in the mornings and today was windy.
- Brooch - Coro, thrifted, vintage 60s
- Earrings - thrifted
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
At the end of the day, I'd changed into my new-to-me Dunlop runners (thrifted here on the weekend for $19.95), and swung by fashionable coworker Lesley's desk to waggle my feet at her (as I am wont to do).
"Those are my shoes!" she cried. She'd just donated them to WIN, after she purchased them on sale (for 9 Euros) in London. Too funny!
|"They just want to see me - no one cares about your shoes, Woman."|
Oh how funny that your coworker donated the shoes! It's always nice when you find something in a thrift store as it has a bit of history (like your Kim Cattrall suit!) but it's even better when you know what that history is.ReplyDelete
Lorena's inspired me too with her pins - she is a wonderful blogger. I just have no idea where any of my brooches are! Half my stuff is still in storage with the in-laws after we were going to sell this place.
I know, too funny! I've seen my own clothes in thrift stores and at vintage fairs, but I rarely find something of someone I know!Delete
Oh wow Sheila I am sooo flattered and excited to actually have inspired you ! Because you are the inspiration.ReplyDelete
I love how the prints on the skirt and blouse seem to go together and the story about you buying your co-workers is waaay too cool. I would love to see where my clothes end up and how other women wear it. I do occasionally when I pass them on to friends but would love to know where the ones I send to the thrift store go.
PS. You're on my list too.
You inspire me all the time, Lorena! :) thanks so much! One day we'll meet!Delete
OH, sea green and sky blue, a fav color combo! This is so elegant, with the bow blouse and pearl earrings, and that is why I love the shoes, such a comfy counterpoint..ReplyDelete
But the very last accessory, the furry one, is my favorite! :)
And thank you for recommending Lorena!
Thank you, Elle! Hee, yes, my furry accessory is always there!Delete
I'm having a brooch/pin moment, as well!!!!!ReplyDelete
I know, right? Brooches are it!Delete
You are getting the mileage out of that awesome satin bomber jacket. I love the casual lux look of this outfit. Well done.ReplyDelete
I'm trying! I love it, though, so it's not a chore. Thanks, Kathryn!Delete
I love the mint green with the pussy bow blouse! And the brooch is fab - I'm trying to wear more brooches too; I've built up quite a collection..ReplyDelete
Those shoes are so unusual and fabulous; I think they're wonderful.
It's funny that you bought your co worker's donation. Here, many charity shops send their donations off to other shops in other towns to avoid exactly that happening. Personally speaking, I wouldn't mind if someone accosted me in the street and told me that the item I was wearing was donated by them. I'd just smile sweetly and say thank you!
Thank you! I have lots of brooches, but tend to "save" them for special - I must remember that every day is special! The shoes are awesome, aren't they? When I saw them, I had to have them.Delete
I would love that too! I get a huge kick out of seeing my own stuff on other people -it just confirms my good taste, ha ha!
So happy they ended up on your feet :) All future shoe/bag donations will be run by you first!ReplyDelete
I need to bring some in for you! I have oodles of shoes in the giveaway pile. Thanks again, my dear!Delete
I've never been much of a "blouse" person, but you wear them very well. I think you need to be able to tuck them into pants or a skirt and I never tuck anything. Very nice combination of blue and mint!ReplyDelete
Yeah, many blouses only look good tucked in, but I do see (and own) many that have finished bottom hems and look nice left out. Thanks, Shelley!Delete
The new blouse is fab my dear especially with that pin as a feature. And goodness me, how lovely are those blue sandals! And you say they're comfy too, how perfect.ReplyDelete
Talking of perfect, in a perfect world I'd be scooting off to check out your friend's blog, but am so time challenged! I'll stay here and work my way through your latest posts. I need to catch up with your world before I head off to bed.
Thank you! I love the colour of the blouse and shoes with the mint green. Yes, Fluevogs are 99% comfy (the other 1% hurt like hell, lol). I totally get that about other blogs. I can barely stay on top of them, myself.Delete
