Hello Blogland!! Man I’m glad this week is almost over. Been busy busy busy at work and the weather has turned colder and rainy. UGH.
Along with my new office digs-speaking of which a co-worker came in and exclaimed it even SMELLED better in here. It’s amazing what Lysol, bleach and an air freshener will do!! Anyway–I “inherited” the former tenants unfinished projects. Mostly because I volunteered to take them on. And wow what a mess….lolol!!! Unraveling what he did or didn’t do will keep me busy for a bit!
Wednesday’s outfit was inspired by the vintage scarf. The Brethren Mission Store in town always has the nicest vintage scarves for fifty cents each!!!
Skirt-JessicaLondon($50)/Thrifted, Cardigan-LauraAshley($60)/Thrifted, Tshirt-JonesNewYork($50)/Thrifted, Purse-Thrifted, Tights-Retail, Shoes-Retail. I would have paid about $160 if I had brought my skirt, cardigan and Tshirt retail. I paid $12 for all thrifted.
I got my shoes with a gift certificate at Kohl’s. They are Skechers On-The-Go Presta. FABULOUS!!! They are lighter than air and so, so comfortable. The picture doesn’t show the cool rainbow holographic glitter on the toe caps. I’m thinking of getting another pair in either the coral or hot pink!!!
Here’s my bling–I really piled it on!!
Todays outfit was somewhat low-key. I was busy helping setting up a new scanner/computer station and wanted to be comfortable
Top-Dressbarn new with tags ($30)/Thrifted, Trousers-LaneBryant($60)\Thrifted, Shoes-Timberland new with tags ($70)\Thrifted. I paid a total of $12 for the outfit!! The top is a nice Tshirt knit with embroidery.
What’s rather interesting about vintage St. Patrick’s Day cards is how much “en vogue” they were at the turn of the 20th century. There are ton’s of examples out there from that era. They evidently became less prominent as the years progressed. Through my research I noticed that there were several recurring “themes”.
