Pink Suede and Giant Pants

Everyone at work was sick today - darned cold/flu/whatever it is! I faked feeling good with a very bright pink top. 
 Pink suede - butter soft, with drapey bits. So pretty.


  • Top - Danier Leather, consignment; first worn here for Greg's party in October 2017
  • Pants - Linda Lundstrom, swap from Caro; last seen here with Monster Vest in December 2017
  • Shoes - Celestial Communication Andromeda, Fluevog; last worn here in June 2017 with classy black
  • Coat (below) - Forever 21, thrifted; last seen here in January


I was so tired this morning, I just wanted to go back to bed.
 But I slogged on, off to work, deal with new people, do more move stuff (eep, getting closer). Try not to fall asleep or lose track of what I'm doing due to cold meds.

I love these ginormous pants.
 They make me look tall (I'm not, I'm 5'4").

And they have pockets.
 Gotta have pockets.

Outerwear - Grape Ape time!
 Pink gloves, of course.


  • Gloves - consignment


The stuff:
 These are pretty high heels, but I kept close to my desk most of the day. The pants require a heel.

Simple bling:
First wearing of these new-to-me earrings, purchased on the weekend for $8.00.


  • Earrings - thrifted
  • Hematite rings - thrifted

  4. You look beautiful, nice blouse. It's better to take two days off, I went to work with the same symptoms and ended up with a temperature of 39, 5 that could not be broken.

  5. I love this, that pink top is so bright and cheerful, you'd never know you were sick. It's so hard when things go around the office, it spreads so quickly! Hope you get better soon!

    1. Yup, you'd never know I was sick. The top is so cool - I'm glad to get another wear out of it. I know, the coat was a steal too - I paid less than $10 for it.

  10. Great outfit - who can resist pink suede ruffles, and you know how I feel about wide-leg pants! The flu/cold thing has been making its way around our office too. I just finished a round of antibiotics to get rid of bronchitis.
