Turtleneck and tights: Target — Sweatervest: Thrifted [shirt-bits cut out by me] — Skirt and flats: Goodwill — Earrings: Gift from Katie!
Thanks to the recent combination of Chelsea’s sweatervest love and Gracey’s zigzag love on my Google Reader, it was basically compulsory for me to wear my good old zigzag sweatervest last Friday. Thankfully, all the layers were lightweight enough that I wasn’t sweltering by the middle of the day. (It’s going to be 68F this afternoon! Almost jort weather.)
It wasn’t until I was taking pictures that I realized that this tissue-tee turtleneck from Target (5 points in the alliteration jar!) was nearly the same shape and color as the shirt I wore the day before, aside from obvious neckline differences. I don’t think anybody noticed, though, so I wasn’t stoned to death in the town square or anything. I don’t think our town even has a square.
I have also been meaning to show you guys my new and slightly-improved jewelry storage situation. You may remember that it was previously a big jumble at the top of my chest of drawers, but no more! I picked up a cheap corkboard last time we were at IKEA and used it to hang up all my necklaces, since they tended to get tangled and suffer the most in the dogpile. It’s still not perfect (maybe I should get a second corkboard) but now I can at least see everything I’ve got and it all stays more or less tangle-free.
This has allowed me to free up the top of the chest of drawers for rings and bracelets–and if I ever think I need more jewelry, may this serve as a reminder that I already have plenty.
The earring situation has pretty much remained the same, although I gave it all a good sorting to weed out that which is no longer my style.
Have you had any good storage innovations lately?
