Top: Goodwill (H&M) — Cami: Gift (Active Basic) — Skirt: Gift (Mine) — Shoes: Swap (Jenn Yaw) — Scarf: From my friend Leah’s free pile (no label)
More pictures from
a million years ago last month. I finally wrested these from Mike’s cold dead hands so that I would have something to show y’all today.
This outfit was built on Tia’s well-worn principle that blue and brown does, indeed, make the world go ’round. In fact, I’m pretty convinced that the chocolate brown of my beloved H&M top goes with just about anything, but it goes particularly well with this skinny blue scarf that I rescued valiantly from Leah’s free pile. I really should add a “Leah’s Free Pile” tag to the tag cloud, but then I would end up tagging just about every post that way. Leah gets rid of a lot of great stuff!
Oh, these shoes. You had so much potential, shoes, when I got you from the clothing swap in June! I thought you would make a great addition to my 30 for 30 items. Then you started doing your best Talking Stove impression.
Thus, the shoes were unceremoniously chucked. Not even the liberal application of superglue could hold those babies together. A good rule for 30 for 30: choose shoes you’ve worn before.
Otherwise you’ll end up wanting to strangle yourself.
Well, maybe not. But you know what I mean.
