And since things have been a whirlwind this weekend (I'll have a full post on the Bloggy award from Ally of Shybiker when I think I have some words. You should check her blog out in the highly unlikely event that you did not find my blog through hers.) here are some older outfits that got left behind for one reason or other this last month.
Spoiler alert: the reason was usually lighting. Stupid time change. Stupid sun not putting in enough hours at its job.
Laguardia Cloche: Goorin Bros. sample sale (available here)
Long cloak hoodie in blue suede: Prairie Underground (old, more colors)
Purple knit top: Elie Tahari (thrifted)
Cotton godet skirt: Free People (old)
Floral gauze square scarf: Old Navy (available here)
Boots: Two Lips (thrifted)Waiting for Godet one except with a different top and a scarf. (Scarf is no longer on sale for $6. Boo.) Got skipped due to lighting, made a very similar outfit to photograph later, but I was super excited at the time because it was the first time I'd managed to coordinate an outfit, scarf, shoes, and a hat. Unfortunately also the last.
Dress: Treasure Rock (Treasure Rock on eBay)
Top: Treasure Rock (old)
Sandals: Eastland (old)way back in June, when my dear friend Diana was visiting. Since I never wear it, I hacked the bottom off and turned it into sleeves as a topper for this sleeveless dress, also by Treasure Rock. Well, formerly sleeveless. I also added straps to the dress as it was driving me crazy.
Happy rest of the weekend, folks, especially for those who have a long weekend for Remembrance Day. I have my own strong feelings on war, military, and authoritarian power pyramids in society, but I do recommend checking out the history of the 442nd Infantry Regiment from WWII. It was composed almost entirely of Japanese American soldiers who volunteered despite their families being imprisoned in internment camps. I'm sad there was a schism between those who served and those who angrily refused the draft (some of whom were deported to Japan, a country they'd never lived in,) because of the loss of their and their families' rights. I think both courses of action took such incredible bravery.
