What, satisfied The Man's dress code?
Wore J. Crew for the first time.
J. Crew skirt ~ eBay
J. Crew shirt ~ thrifted
Nine West wedges ~ Ross Dress for Less earlier this year
Faux multi-strand pearl necklace ~ I bought it from Ann Taylor in the early 90s when I had to wear pantyhose to work EVERY SINGLE DAY
Pearl post earrings ~ formerly my Mom's
Skinny belt ~ dunno, it's been woefully neglected in my belt drawer for years
That's how poor I normally am. No J. Crew for me. I don't even look at the catalogs. And this was kind of an accident. After I greatly admired my friend Megan's new-to-her yellow skirt, and moaned
While Megan is Mistress of eBay, I've never gotten a single item I bid on. So Megan told me how to do it, and I scored this awesome yellowy gold J. Crew skirt from a seller that was getting rid of all her size 4 stuff. The skirt is way prettier in person that it was in the eBay photo. I wish I'd bought all of her skirts, but I only got just the one.
What was really weird is I decided to pair it with the gingham button front shirt I scored at a MegaThrift 50% Off All Clothing sale for $3. I'd seen gingham shirts on other style bloggers, but I'd forgotten mine until All Buttoned Up week.
Look, y'all, NO ROOTS!
Please help me out, guys. What is up with me and Donna Reed?
