The top is a silk knit by Diane Von Furstenberg (classy!) and I'm wearing an olive green cami under it.
I like that they have deep pockets and a matte stripe down the outsides of the legs, which you can see near my hand in the stair pic above.
I also tend to spill on them every single time I wear them.
Vizzini was lurking around while I did my pics this morning, so I grabbed him for some forced lovin'.
"I will not look at the camera!"
He's quite happy to get a cuddle, though he kept trying to bite my long, dangly earrings.
- Scarf - fake Louis (Lewis!) Vuitton, thrifted

I was sad to discover that these shoes have ripped and have a hole in them on the back of one heel.
They are not repairable, so we'll say farewell to my little studded friends in a Flashback shortly.
I'm quite fond of all of these.

Flashback: Seychelles Studded Strappy Flats
I used to go shopping nearly every weekend in the Before Times - I've cut down a bit over the last couple of years - and found these shoes at the big WIN store here in November 2018 in new condition for $19.99.
They are leather with wee metal studs, and have some nice squishy padding inside.
The wee buckles have always been finicky - I try not to wear these shopping!
Not a lick of wear on them.
Of course, I snapped them up. Brand new shoes for 20 bucks? Duh!
Although I usually wear my new-to-me things immediately, these got stashed in with my spring/summer items, so my first outfit with them was in April 2019.
That's the one and only wearing of those pants, and I believe that may have been the last sighting of that orange top - I remember disliking this look. I still have the blazer.
I just gave away this magenta blazer recently (having paid a whopping $4.99 for it, I have no regrets).
Do I still have that dress? I think I may have let it go as well. Things are tighter on me lately (thank you, menopause/pandemic). This outfit is from May 2019.
I paired the shoes with this luscious purple velvet Betsey Johnson dress in July 2019.
I used to wear these shoes on really busy days in the office, when I was on my feet nearly all day.
Another all-neutral outfit, also from July 2019. The top was Helmut Lang and ripped when it caught on one of the office doors, sadly ruining it.
And I gave the skirt to my colleague Flavia. This outfit is also from July 2019.
I went shopping with one of my former WW members in September 2019.
You'll recognize the skirt and denim vest - the tee is long gone.
Oh, must be the pandemic - I have pink hair! This was in May 2020.
I nearly wore that Jean Paul Gaultier cardigan again today! I'm repeating the arm-party (the bracelets) today, as well as the trousers.
Later in May, I wore them for a pandemic park party - the pink in my hair faded out quickly, and I have yesterday's Lanvin scarf worn as a headband.
I love that orange jumpsuit.
I passed along this denim dress/vest in my big giveaway earlier this month - I couldn't do the snaps up in front anymore and wasn't feeling it. I also let go of the blouse (crap quality) but I still have the skirt (vintage, superb quality).
This is a work outfit from July 2020.
I last wore these shoes for a Mom-Day Adventure in Sidney in August 2021 (here, enjoy) - I remember it was such a lovely hot (26 degrees!) day.
I actually bought a replacement pair of neutral flats recently (these ones here) and was *this close* to wearing them today (I felt it was a bit too much snakeskin!), but those will be my new go-to.
Mathy stuff: Well, farewell little studded shoes! I wore them 10 times, which is a nice round number, bringing me to $2.00 per wear. Awesome.
Not gonna happen, bud.
