What I Wore

Here's what I wore on Tuesday:

Man, it was chilly. Gorgeous, sunny, crisp and clear!

That's a skirt you've seen before ($28.00, vintage from Apt. 909). The top is from Loehmanns. It cost about 20 bucks, if I remember correctly. It was a few years ago. The belt is one of the oldest things in my wardrobe. It's at least 10 years old and I can't remember where I got it, but somehow I remember it cost $19.99. You can't see the black quilted flats from Century21 (I got them for $30.00 when I was in NY last summer. And no tax in Manhattan!)

Now the lingerie cost a living fortune, but the rest of my outfit comes in under $100.00!


  1. Great outfit!
    Love the combo and again it shows your great figure.

  2. Oooh. I absolutely love your outfit! You trendy lady!

  3. Uh, K, I think you have a monkey in here!

    This outfit is super cool, vintagey brilliant. I love it.

  4. Looking good :) I am soooo looking forward to the cooler weather! Especially since by now I have all the fall runway shows practically memorized!

  5. Miss Curruthers, Can you take dictation, meets Catholic Schoolgirl in trouble.
    I like it!

  6. The skirt is truly awesome!

  7. The print on the skirt is great, and is that sweater as soft as it looks?

    By the way I posted the locations at the bottom of the Jen Kao post, but yes, you were right!

  8. Thanks W!

    Dr. Monkey: How kind. I love your new house, btw. It seems to be in a style I've seen in the Southern US...

    Dai / Ria: I love that skirt! THanks for finding it.

    Seeker: Thank you for your lovely compliment. The skirt makes me feel quite confident.

    Thanks for your comment Tea Lady. Don't think I've seen you on the blog before (have I?)

    E: Hammie totally has my number. I am totally going for bad catholic girl/sexy secretary!

    Y: Me too, and today's return to the heat wave is almost too much. But cuz it's not raining, I'll keep my mouth shut.

    Hammie: I can't believe you said that because I so feel that way wearing this outfit. Needless to say, I love it :-)

    Hey thanks N. It's the kind of thing you might wear, I think.

    Jill: Sorry I missed that part of the post (I think Reader cut it off). They were great photos, btw. Oh, and the top is soft, but not like cashmere. Like a very soft cotton knit.

  9. Oh yes love the skirt - the whole outfit is a bit retro, but with a very updated-modern twist.

  10. I share your ability to remember, to the cent, how much I've paid for things. Bless Century 21, I love it so. I'm a little taken aback at tweed so early, but you're certainly working it!

  11. Lovely! Chic and do it so well.
