what i wore

March 17, 2010 in Fashion by alliemcc

Just tell me if you’re getting sick of outfit posts – I don’t have a lot of time for writing just now…

2 days ago, and today.

Vintage cotton dress, 1950’s, gold and cream woven stripes – thrifted about 10 years ago.  I can’t believe my tush still fits into this.  Sorry, no bullet bra.

Go-to gray wool cardigan.

Patent belt.

Black herringbone pattern tights – Target

Vintage charm bracelet – from a secondhand store on East Main St, Torrington, like, before I was in high school.  A looooong time ago.  There is a charm here from LaGuardia Airport.  Newer charms received as a gift from my friend Kryste.

Very period-authentic peep toe heels with ankle strap – from Spiegel, about 10 years ago. {I have to admit these are not the shoes I wore to work – my back has been twinging, I think from wearing heels too much, so I wore flats.}

Sorry, I’m a bit wrinkly here – I took these at the end of the day.

Just look at these style lines.  Brilliant.  I don’t think I’m going to wear this again, I’m afraid to rip it or stain it irrevocably, although it is in excellent condition.  I just want to preserve it and hang it on my wall or something… sigh…

And here’s today.

Chambray shirt – secret discount store I will not tell you about.

Vintage 70s cream kimono top dress with lace yoke.

Big old patent and elastic belt – from my old job, a Marshall’s-type chain.

Gray tights – Target

Heels comfortable and rugged enough to hike in – Tsubo Anush, I guess this colorway is not available anymore.


Red shoe or blue shoe?  Enter the Fashion Matrix.  I had a hard time deciding which shoes to wear (really, "bring to change into"), but went with the Tsubos. Best choice I think.
