Thank you all so much for visiting, reading, and following! I've got a logjam of outfits I've worn and photographed, so the next few posts may be brief. Or just as likely not, but one can hope.
This was a snowy day, and I put on some more really old things and layered outerwear. It's all stuff I've had for ages, but haven't combined before.
|wool hat: The Snow Lion / Tibet Shop, late '80s, last worn here|
black fun fur jacket: MBasics, Mariposa, early 2000s
olive wool cape: Dem Hats by Lou, a gift from my mother (~15 years ago)
striped wool wrap skirt: Daniel Hechter, Fairweather, mid 90s
thermal leggings: Elita, Sears
shorty cowboy boots: Rudy2, WalM*rt, last worn here
Just about everything I'm wearing has been on the "donation" chopping block at some point
- but I find myself glad to still have them.
The green cape which I've lately been keeping at work for when my desk-drawer-stashed merino wool wrap isn't enough (and which goes perfectly with the dress Beary got me for Christmas), light wool sweater with sweet button closure, and the skirt I remember from my undergrad studies.
|black collared shirt: Fred David, Giant Tiger, last worn here|
wool pullover with shoulder buttons: Tristan and Iseult, outlet store, early 2000s
ancient camel bell necklace: last worn here
Oddly, a lady at my current workplace has the exact same skirt. The fun fur jacket takes up a lot of space for how infrequently I wear it, but it appeals to my sense of humour.
The problem with developing my outfit-creation skills is that it becomes even more difficult to let go of things as I keep discovering new ways to wear them.
I have few regrets but no closet space.
