The skirt and top cost a total of $7. If you have good eyesight, you can see new earrings ($2).
I picked up the gold scarf at Marshall's for $8. I've never used a scarf in an outfit before but see many of you deploy them to great advantage. I hope to acquire that skill.
I normally don't buy long skirts but you guys have convinced me of their appeal. I saw this blue plaid for $5 and thought it might be fun to play with. The best part of these purchases is that they allow me to experiment and explore without worrying about money. If an outfit cost $7 and doesn't work, who cares? People spend more than that on coffee!
I like the new finds :) especially the plaid skirt. You should definetely try pairing it with some black tights and heeled boots. Good buys!ReplyDelete
I Love these finds ! I like the vintage feel of the top. I definitely agree with Brianna that the blue plaid skirt would Great with black tights and boots. Very nice for fall : )ReplyDelete
Great idea, Bri & Emma. I'm going to try it.ReplyDelete
I agree the top looks vintage. It reminds me of what women wore during the 1960's. I like the creative breadth and wild prints of that era.
My google friend connect says that I have a message from you but I cant retrieve it. My email is email@example.com. Hope to hear from you.ReplyDelete
The slim fitting skirt is very smart. It has been posted on this blog before and I'm posting it again - you have great legs! The blue plaid skirt is my favourite - I love these skirts. The make a lovely silhouette with a dark v-neck sweater and a blouse and they're very warm. They also look great with boots and (there's more!) they offer a perfect opportunity to wear cute kilt pins. Excellent scores at the thrift stores!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Baxter. I deeply cherish comments that, in some way, I physically resemble what I am in my heart.ReplyDelete
The blue plaid skirt is going to get some attention! The kilt-pin is a terrific idea I hadn't imagined: thanks for your creativity.
Gotta love thrift store finds! I love rummaging through them all and making my own outfits too.ReplyDelete
This outfit looks great on you dear.
Thanks for you comment on my blog, can't wait to see the pics of your guys' Halloween costumes.
Love your blog, it's so inspirational, Keep it up!
I like that top skirt and the blue plaid (maybe shorten it? - you can't hide those legs!).ReplyDelete
You're going to be a thrift store goddess in no time!
Like everyone else, I'm loving the plaid skirt! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing it with some tights and heels or boots. And congrats on all the recent interviews and links. I've been reading them and I think it's great you're getting your say in the fashion blogging community.ReplyDelete
I love that gold scarf! It's the perfect touch.ReplyDelete
Thanks, buddy. The best part about this new attention is how it will allow me to meet more people. I'd like to make more friends, build a bigger readership, and show people that I'm nice even though I'm different.ReplyDelete
Like you and everyone else, I love that blue plaid skirt! I'm styling it tomorrow in a variety of ways. I'll post the ones that work.
Thanks, Diana. I sought the scarf out thinking it was just what the outfit needed. I'm proud that I've learned to come up with such thoughts. I want to be a better fashion-creator.ReplyDelete
You have killer legs. *Made* for wearing skirts.ReplyDelete
Great finds. But even better outfits!!ReplyDelete
The blue plaid skirt is my FAVORITE! It's rare to find blue paid like this, lucky you. :)ReplyDelete
P.S. Is there any way you could enable Name/URL for commenting? It keeps making me sign in with my livejournal...
Thanks. I just did a new shoot with the skirt, up tomorrow, and you'll be pleased!ReplyDelete
I'll work on that second thing.
I have very very bad eyesight but what I still managed to notice is that you have gorgeous legs, so shapely and perfect. :)ReplyDelete
I actually really like how you're experimenting with various skirt lengths and both the leopard print and the gray pencil ones look amazing on you. I just realized that it has been quite some time that I experimented with various lengths. :)

Thank you, buddy, for the kind observation. It warms my heart to hear such compliments.ReplyDelete
I'm experimenting because things are new to me. Most women fall into ruts and do the same thing that worked for them in the past; breaking out of the rut and trying new lengths is a good idea and could lead to interesting results.
It would be ironic if I (a 52-year old male lawyer) prompt normal women to re-examine their wardrobe and wearing better clothes. Truly ironic. :)
I would have picked these items up too !ReplyDelete
I totally would wear every single garment you have here.... great choices :)
