After what feels like jammy dress after jammy dress for my workwear, I decided to look at my backward hangers and see what else I have that's still unworn this season.
I have been feeling restless with my wardrobe lately. I know it's time to cull some of my things that have been lingering in my closet, that are infrequently worn and not inspiring me. This cape top is one of those - and we shall end its time with me with a wee Flashback at the end of this post.
We have long-over-long proportions again here - I would have belted the blouse, but I didn't have a belt that looked right with it.
It's Hiding in My Clothes.
He does. What a weird cat.
I only spotted Vizzini in the background after I'd uploaded my pics. He's been hankering for the hallway lately, always trying to get out there.
- Mask - by Mom
I love these shoes - they matched the soft blue of the skirt perfectly.
Sparkles help. I wish I'd worn bracelets to ward off negative mental vibes.
- Necklace/earrings - Sherman, vintage 60s, thrifted
- Lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
Someone is not happy about both L and I leaving!
I was tempted - he looks so cute! Aw, his little white toes...
Farewell Flashback: Navy Blue Lord & Taylor Cape Top
I found this polyester crepe blouse at the Women In Need (WIN) warehouse store on one of my formerly frequent weekend shopping trips here back in March 2018.
It was tagged at $19.95, but that flower punch meant it was half off, so it was only $10.00.
I wore it right away with my gold leather trousers, aka Space Pants, in March 2018.
I wore the top again in October 2018, with one of my many winter miniskirts.
I adore this outfit overall, but you have to admit, the top is just a place-holder. It could be any plain top or sweater.
And you know me, once I find a formula, I repeat it. Do the legs look familiar? This was in November 2019.
And that brings us to the black hole that was 2020. This is the first time I tucked the shirt in, and there are today's shoes again.
And here's the last time I wore this top, this past February 2021.
Mathy stuff: Today's outfit marks the 6th wearing of this top, and you know what? For $1.67 per wear, I think I did really well with something that was only going to be an experiment.
Seeing these outfits (and the low, low price I paid) makes it easier to let this top go. I have better tops, both in my closet and in my shopping future. I'll keep my eyes peeled for a good blue or navy top/sweater (gee, do you think I'll find one?).
Onward - tomorrow is another day! I promise to myself to wear something that makes me feel happy and bright.
