Today's outfit is built around the silk blouse that I picked up yesterday - no time like the present for wearing something new!
- Blazer - Emporio Armani, vintage 90s, thrifted; last worn here in February with pastels
- Blouse - Zara, consignment; purchased here yesterday for $10.00
- Skirt - Trina Turk, consignment; last worn here (2nd outfit) in February to see the Beaches in concert
- Shoes - Half Truths Tanya, Fluevog; last seen here in a Christmassy outfit in December 2019
I knew I wanted to wear this ruffled-front silk blouse with a blazer.
I know they are flowers, but the pattern makes me think of big green lips! I bet you thought I was going to be wearing green lipstick, didn't you? It's not like I haven't done it before (proof).
I mostly wore the blazer done up all day.
It was cloudy and gloomy this morning, so I wore a hat just in case of rain.
- Hat - consignment
- Scarf - thrifted
- Earrings - vintage fair
- Silver/aventurine ring - consignment
- Glass bangle - thrifted
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
I bought this Italian-made viscose-blend blazer in September 2017 for $38.95 (here). I always appreciate older designer brands - anything before the 00s, mostly - because they are so much more well made. Lovely woven texture, perfect seams...but still, $38.95. That seemed high.
I was excited to wear it - here's my outfit from October 2017.
Same shirt, different pants, in December 2012.
A shockingly casual look in January 2018.
The jacket is an unusual colour and goes well with these shoes - I should wear them together again.
In April 2019 - a long stretch of not wearing it means it was probably packed away for winter.

My one and only wearing of these trousers.
In September 2019.
Autumn pastels in November 2019.
This must have been a very recent lavender colour refresh in December 2019 - my colour fades out really quickly.
And here's the last time I wore it in February.
When I bought this blazer, I thought the price was too high, but I loved it and sucked it up and supported the WIN thrift store. Now that I've worn it 10 times, $3.90 cents doesn't seem so bad!
