What I Wore Today

Sparkles to deflect the rain

I’ve been wanting sequined leggings for a while, and I found this pair at Target in the girls section.  They’re from Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Mini line.

  • Leggings: Target
  • Sweater: vintage Adrienne Vittadini, thrifted from Savers
  • Boots: H&M
  • Earrings: Macy’s
  • Sunglasses: Tsering Jewelry on Durant

Friday!  Three-day Weekend!

And, it’s disco night at the Cal game this Sunday.

So yesterday I was running across campus in search of a Diet Coke when a young woman I didn’t recognize yelled “I love your blog!”  It made my day! I felt instantly more connected to campus than usual.   The internet is so cool.

My Disco Suit

It’s so sparkly!

I think I’ve mentioned that I can’t resist Mondrian-inspired garments, but I’m finding this top a challenge to integrate.  I kind of like the A-line shape with the wide-leg pants, but on the other hand, it’s a little Golden Girls Cruisewear.

  • Top: Charlotte Russe
  • Pants & stud bracelets: F21
  • Jacket: H&M
  • Stud booties: NewportNews.com
  • Earrings: from Kate
  • Sunglasses: Tsering Jewelry on Durant
  • Bangle bracelets: yard sale in Dogtown (STL)

Serena Glitter

Have I mentioned that one of my fashion icons is Serena from Bewitched?  She was always trying to get Sam to lighten up and go hang out with the Monkees, or party in Ceylon or something.  This dress has the Serena vibe.  And I love pink & gold together.

  • Dress: H&M
  • Jeans: Alloy.com
  • Jacket: vintage 80’s Liz Claiborne, thrifted from Savers on Geneva
  • Gold platform pumps: Buffalo Exchange in Berkeley
  • Bracelets: F21
  • Pink lucite earrings: Mission variety store
  • Sunglasses: thrifted from the Bloomington Goodwill

Fantasy Friday
The intent of this outfit was to dress down for work the newly-thrifted sequined cocktail dress.  After it was assembled, it reminded me of the end of a long fun evening at a rehearsal dinner, when you’re talking with your close friends, and then you realize you really need a Diet Coke and candy bar, so you throw on your sweatshirt and exchange your heels for your loafers to run down to Walgreens, or the corner store.
Dress: F21, thrifted at the Excelsior Goodwill
Sweatshirt: Target
Earrings: thrifted in Indiana
Stud bracelets: F21
Tights: Capezio, from SF Dancewear
Loafers: Bass, from the Bass Outlet in Lake of the Ozarks
Sunglasses: Ambiance

I Get Distracted by Shiny Things.

I love this skirt!  From a distance, the sequins look green, up close they blend with the tan chiffon, and sometimes they look lavender.  All for only 6.99 on the reduced rack.  The green sequins caught my eye across the store, but it was such a weird color combo, whatever would I wear with it?  More colors, more patterns.

Skirt: Charlotte Russe, about a week ago.

Blouse: New York & Co., two years ago.

Leggings: a variety store in the Mission.  They had lace attached which I deleted.

Blazer (worn til the fog burned off): vintage 80’s Liz Claiborne, thrifted at Savers. Shoulder pads excised.

Mary Janes w/attached socks: Lela Rose for Payless.

Bracelets: chain: thrifted; silver mini-coral: TJ Maxx; rhinestone: from Anita; blue: Macy’s.

Crystal ball earrings: from Kate.

Crest Pendant: thrifted in Evansville.

Pretty happy wearing sequins in the daytime!
