Here we are at Wednesday - a few days to the weekend. Yippee!! I have mixed emotions as I type because this weekend will be filled with things to do that don't entail much lying in bed and relaxing (favorite pastime hehe). All I can think about is how Monday may be met with exhaustion and that causes a bit of stress on the heart. However yesterday afternoon I managed to alleviate just a little bit of that stress by putting together a very fun outfit for an event I have on Saturday that is casual, yet requiring a bit of sass. The kind where you don't want to show up over-dressed, yet under-dressed will not be a good scenario either. Long live Closet Quest 2010. (And living in the moment for Pete's sake!! Monday will take care of itself.)
Remember last week when I mentioned my closet dive? (here and here if you missed) I have to tell you I came out with some great stuff that had almost been forgotten *hangs head*. Amongst several new old treasures was a velour moto vest I got last year at Juicy Couture (along with a couple of fur pieces that made me scream out loud with glee!!). Today when it came out of the closet my wardrobe rolodex immediately clicked to a fab ruffled t-shirt and the rest was outfit history. Saturday here I come!!
Tom Ford Sunnies, Juicy Couture Velour Moto Vest and Ruffled T,
Martin+Osa Denim (RIP),
Alexander Wang Coco Handbag, Mike & Chris Boots
The fluttery goodness of the sleeves on the t-shirt makes my heart happy!
Marrying textures like velour and ruffles is simple perfection: my fave.
I threw on a Dean Davidson necklace for bit of shine against the grey,
and to bring out the zipper contrast on the vest just a bit more.
Mike & Chris boots save the day yet again.
These have held up for over 2 years and still keep bringin' the sass!
What was that? Saturday's on the phone? Okay, I'll be ready in a minute.
Truthfully though - it's tough to know you have somewhere to go and even though you have stuff in the closet, you just aren't certain the right thing is in there. So many times I am tempted to simply buy something, and then don't always wear it again. A case specific purchase can be completely justified and sometimes even necessary (wedding, important meeting, big date, just to name a few...), but when I challenge myself and find a loved solution already in the closet, now that's a jackpot!! Happy Wednesday everyone! Any recent fab closet conquests to share?
ps-day 2 of return to workouts accomplished! yay!
