Happy Friday, all you lovely people! Sorry for not being around to visit your blogs much - it's a silly season for us socially, so I have to squeeze in posts when I can. I'm multitasking right now as I dye my hair for our Christmas party tomorrow night!
I went out after work with some of my colleagues and we ended up going out for drinks and dinner.
I can't believe how dark it is in the mornings! It's going to be black out when I leave for work soon.
This is my J. Peterman white cotton blouse that I bought back in August, the day after I got my newest tattoo. I always think of "Seinfield" when I hear J. Peterman - I've never seen a piece of it in person before, but this blouse is just beautifully made. It's tailored in the midsection and the hem is all trimmed in the same gorgeous thick lace as the ruffle down the front and the cuffs. And I thrifted it for $8.00!
The vest was also thrifted, bought back here in July for $10.50. I love the double row of buttons and the rounded lapels. It's a Le Chateau.
The skirt is my lovely wool herringbone tulip midi that Megan Mae sent me back in July 2011 (shown getting a little too loose on the stairs). I last wore it in October 2011 with greens and holey tights - I'm so glad to be wearing it in a capsule, because it's the most comfy skirt and deserves more wear! I love this shape too.
The shoes are my Listen Up Mansfields by Fluevog. I found these at My Sister's Closet last September (first worn with my grey leather dress) for $60! They are a very tight size 10 and were maybe worn once when I found them. I also wore them last November with this month's grey wool strapless dress.
Doesn't Megan's buttonflower look amazing with the striped vest?
You can't go wrong with lots of buttons!

Today, I was a little tired after four martinis the night before, so I went for even more comfort: the Jammie Dress!
I've had it forever, since at least 2007. I know it can't be earlier than Spring 2007 because I weighed 50lbs more prior to then. The first time I wore it was in May 2008, for my very first Dress Week!
I last wore it here in November 2011 (3rd outfit, and yup, hungover), and previously in May 2011 (yup, tired on a Monday morning), in June 2010 (yup, feeling muzzy-headed), in July 2009 (erm, feeling like a pirate?), in Feb 2009 (posing goofily, no doubt due to mind control from Othello and Inigo), and in July 2008 (tired after seeing Judas Priest live the night before).
The black wrap I have on is the coat I bought it on consignment in November here for $42.00. It's called the Goddess Wrap and it's by Kania. They retail for $229.00 so I got a good score!
The boots were last worn here with my hot pink skull skirt.

I had some issues today. I think I'm turning into a ghost!
