Today, the Senior VP for Western Canada came to our office. I thought I'd go conservative.
This jacket is extremely bling-y - it's trimmed with black ribbon and shiny gold along the collar, cuffs and pockets. It has a red stripe in the plaid. And it's covered with little gold buttons with "G"s on them. I last wore it in the March 2012 capsule (recap here), last time in this outfit. I nearly always wear this jacket with a red and black combination - in fact, the first time I wore it (here, lots of detail pictures) it was with this same skirt!
I did find when I first bought it, though, in January 2011 - I thrifted it for $14.50. So even if I don't wear it that much (and don't get me wrong, I do like it and it fits great), I still keep it.
|I'm laughing at Vizzini. He was meowing at me and rubbing all over my legs.|
Groovy tights, aren't they? I've only worn them once before, here in October 2012, with my uber-cool locally-made and designed dress. I might just have to bust that dress out for a party again soon!
The jacket was plenty bling-y so the only jewelry (aside from my usual glut of rings) were my gold hoops.here in March with green tweed and roses.
I realized while I was showing off my outfit to my hairdresser (after a quick visit at my periodontist - unrelated appointments!), that everything I wore today was second-hand. In fact, my gold hoops cost more than my entire outfit. Let's tally it up:
Jacket (Guess, thrifted): $7.50
Blouse (Lida Baday, consignment): $10.00
Skirt (Danier Leather, thrifted): $14.50
Shoes (Hilary Radley, thrifted): $24.50
That's $34.50 for the whole outfit - my gold hoop earrings were over $200 (they are real gold and locally-made - I've had them for 13+ years; they were a 5th anniversary gift from L). Love that high/low mix!
