Ode to an Outfit

If I could write a poem to this outfit, it would begin, "How do I love thee? let me count the ways..." If I could write a song to it, I'm sure I would start with, "Oh my love, my darling, I hunger for your touch..." and if I could write a book, I'm sure it would begin, "Scarlett O'Hara was not a beautiful woman..." Have you ever just put something on and just felt so very much like yourself, like the style asthetic of who you are inside? It's THAT feeling I aim for in my clothes everyday!




Paula, at Fashion Over Fifty, asked the question on her blog, "What classic piece do you reach for over and over" and I replied that it's these shoes. I think a t-strap shoe is classic, retro and always looks good. I can't imagine not having these shoes and there is not a time that I wear them that I don't get compliments on them. The cherry on the sundae? I got them at a thrift store in Oregon for only $8! You gotta love it when you find something thrifted that you would have happily spent big bucks for new!

Dress......Belk($50?) gift from my husband

Sweater...... Doncaster Tanner (hand me down from my aunt)

Belt......Michael Kors via TJ Maxx ($19?)

Shoes......Thrifted a few years ago ($8)

Earrings......gleaned from Girl's night clothing exchange

An old favorite for a new favorite!
