Bold Shapes and Green Ruffles

Ugh, the Tuesday back after a long weekend is just the worst. Fortunately, it was fairly quiet today, so I could just look busy when people came near me. 
 It was a little too warm for a jacket, but I wore it anyway!


  • Jacket - Simon Chang, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in February in a million-dollar outfit
  • Skirt - Sandra Angelozzi, consignment; last worn here in May with green and magenta
  • Shoes - Dr. Scholl's, consignment; last seen here in June with strapless for work

 I love the double peplum on this jacket - it makes my waist look tiny!
 I wish the skirt had a smidge of stretch in it - it's a wee bit tight on me right now.

Outerwear: it's a hat!
 I'm all a blur. Must dash!

The stuff:
Awesome shoes!

I totally forgot to take the "bling" pictures, so here's the bling:


  • Cuff/earrings - Fossil, gift from L
  • Zipper rose - Victoria & Albert Museum gift shop, London
  • Shoe charm bracelet - gift from Caroline

    1. Ha, that's funny that you would think that - I'm fun, but can also be a hardass (I do run two offices of over 200 people!). At least my clothes are fun!

  3. I love your green jacket! The colour and style is really stylish. My favourite accessory is your zipper rose brooch! It is awesome and really looks great with the pattern in your skirt. I agree that the first day back after a long weekend sux! XXX Sasha

  5. I'm glad it's a short work week - it's so hard going back to the office after a long weekend (and I had Friday off too). That jacket is wonderful - it gives you a super flattering shape, and the double peplum is so cool.

    1. Thank you! I was really pleased how the mod/modern touches made the jacket less vintage-y looking.
