Okay. The pictures suck. I'll work on that. Mr. Diva wasn't home when I needed the pictures taken so I made it work. Got to love camera timers. Heh.
In outfit #1 I'm wearing a great pair of trouser jeans from Old Navy from about 3 years ago. They were under $20. Old Navy is an awesome place to go jean shopping. Or for whateveryouneed shopping. This week (at least still on Monday) they were having additional 50% off clearance items. I picked up tons of women's nice t-shirts for $1.50. They will be awesome for my Etsy site. My shirt came from I believe JCPenney 2 years ago. It has an empire waist, which rocks the bulge hiding and is super comfy. My blazer is from the Simply Vera Wang line at Kohls. I purchased it for $10 on clearance. You can't tell, but the lapels have a lovely satin trim (hmm, another reason to take better photos.) My necklace is a vintage costume jewelry piece from the Grandma Collection. (As in came from my grandma...but how cool of a name would that be for a vintage line.....)
May I point out the "rock it" factor of a good blazer or vest. They provide coverage for us lumpier ladies and can give curves to those who don't have much. They are a woman's best friend. Repeat after me: I love blazers. I love vests! They are the best, best best! (Cheerleader I am not.)
Please ignore the sour expression. I was fuming about something I can't remember yesterday. Would it be better if I photoshoped in a smile? That would make me laugh. And possibly snort my Diet Coke. Hmmm, let's simplify the clothes list here......
Shirt: Shamed to say, a long sleeved Liz Lange Maternity Shirt. It's a magic shirt. It fits whatever size you are! AND it was less than $10.
Skirt: Old Navy, summer line, saw some on the clearance racks on Monday. I paid $10
Vest: Target clearance. Men's section. Purchased yesterday for $12
Leggings: New York & Co - purchased last week on major clearance. They are no longer available on the internet, but these are awesome and only $3. I like leggings. As tights. Not pants. My ass would not approve as pants. I love the pop of color the magenta leggings provide what would otherwise be a boring outfit. Do not be afraid of color! Color is your friend!
Boots: White Mountain. Ordered them at DSW. One of my most expensive purchases, but I usually pay a bit more for shoes. They last longer. My feet need to be happy. I refuse to believe that old saying that you "suffer for fashion". No thanks. Needless to say, these boots are well worth the $70. LOVE them!
Little Fashion Maven would like to point out that she is my best accessory. Whatever. Did she see my boots?
So, what's in your closet this week?
