Hello, my friends! Sorry I missed you yesterday, but a nasty bout of food poisoning struck me late Sunday night (it was either the pizza or the soup), and I was a wreck yesterday. I called in sick to work, and slunk back to bed where I slept all day. I'm feeling better now, but a little weak and shaky.
This is not the outfit I had planned for yesterday (that one will show up on Thursday), but it was what I was going to wear to the Vintage Fair on Friday.
- Velvet jacket - Pink Tartan, consignment; first worn here in January with ruffles, plaid and sparkles
- Blouse - H&M, thrifted; last seen here in February with Etro and plaid
- Skirt (part of a suit) - Precis Petite; last worn here in October 2018 in an all-green look
- Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last seen here in January in a Wonder Woman outfit
I was overheated by the time I got to work - walking is hard when you haven't eaten more than a cup of broth in 36 hours.
The skirt is a very old piece in my wardrobe, bought pre-blog, now close to 12 years ago.
here with the skirt, but without its detachable faux fur collar), and used to own matching trousers, but they were too short so they left my closet nearly a decade ago.
With the jacket on. I wore it loose like this all day.
The skirt is a little longer than most of my pencil skirts, but I like a) how it makes my bum look and b) those little kick-pleats in the back. So sweet.
Bundled up - yes! I have NO COAT on! It was sunny and bright this morning, and we had double digit temps today! 10-12 degrees! It feels amazing.
- Fur scarf - thrifted
