As the weather gets cooler, I start reaching for the black, grey and red items in my wardrobe more often. It's a colour combination that I like and feel good wearing - the red pops against the other two colours and relieves the potential gloom and doom vibe of an all black or gray outfit. I found this skirt at Silk Road, the thrift store in my neighbourhood that I mentioned in my previous post. I think it was $4, and I have got more than my money's worth out of it.
It's made of cotton and has silver sequins sewn onto the pattern. I love the fullness of a circle skirt, and I wore a crinoline underneath to add extra floof. I have the Fly London shoes in black and red and they are soooo comfortable, and I love the 1940's style ankle strap and peep toe.
The skirt has a super-high twirlability factor (very important)
It was grey and chilly on Saturday so I dug out some of my cozy stuff, including the marvelous shirt that Melanie made for me last year. These super comfy pants I got at From Mars are the closest I come to wearing sweatpants.
I may have been trying some sort of Charlie Chaplin-esque move here, and fortunately, Heather snapped the photo before I fell into the wall.
I have been trying to be very, very good and not do any thrift shopping until I finish a serious wardrobe purge, but this little shawl-collared incorporated my three fave fall/winter colours, fit really well and was under $10, so it came home with me from Value Village where I went only to look for a couple of books....really I did.
