Playin' Around

I had some unexpected free time today so I pursued my favorite hobby -- playing with clothes. I had an outfit planned with a vintage orange jumpsuit but, sadly, that didn't work out. Buying clothes at thrift-stores without trying them on yields hit-and-miss. This morning it was a wild miss.

I salvaged the jumpsuit (which doesn't fit me above the waist) by using it as wide-legged pants. I pulled a top out of my closet that kinda sorta goes with it and added white heels and a scarf-belt. Surprisingly even though the outfit isn't impressive, creating it on the fly gave me real joy. I enjoy improvising.

It's obvious to all that I'm no influencer, just a simple gal trying to find happiness where I can. This is where I aim my efforts.

  1. That's absolutely gorgeous, Ally! Your outfit reminds me of one of my vintage Barbie outfits from the early 1970s, and believe me, that is high praise coming from me! xxx

  2. Sensational look! This is such a fab take on seventies style and a welcome jolt of sartorial cheer to boot. The abundance of orange is the perfect antidote to the lingering days of dark, icy winter weather.

    Wishing you a fabulous first weekend of March!

  4. I love this! It's delightfully ABBA-esque! I can see you swanning about at a cocktail party in the 70s, sloshing your martini around.

    Playing in closet is one of my greatest pleasures! I'm so glad you experience that joy too, Ally.

  5. love the color! And I can't say it's odd. It makes me mix feelings of hippies and disco and I love both. Also your makeup is so good! You definitely outshine my makeup progress

    1. Thanks, pal. I agree about that mix. It wasn't intended but ended up as the result. With the makeup, I was playing like a child and enjoy the outcome.

  9. That was a clever idea! It is a struggle to shop and not try on, but hey, many capsule wardrobe goddesses would be singing your praises.

    To quote my fav tv chef - "no unitaskers!" And a jumpsuit as pants is a great alternative when the first attempt didn't work out. I dig how your mind works.
