First of all……disclaimer……..these pictures were taken at the absolute very end of my day. I had gone to work, hit the thrift store, grocery shopped, and picked up one of my kids at the bus stop. I feel like I should be swinging a frying pan singing, “I can bring home the bacon! Fry it up in a pan! And never never never let you FO-GET YOU”RE THA MAN…….Cause I’m a WOOOOOOOMAN! ENJOLI!!” I’m completely advertising my age here and younger readers are now scratching their heads thinking, “What the HECK is she talking about and what’s an ENJOLI?” But I said all that to say, it was a rough wonderful day and I look a bit (okay, more than a bit) harried in these pictures.
But harried or not, I stinking LOVE this outfit! If I do a end of the year wrap up with my favorite looks of 2011, this one will definitely be on the list. The stiletto heels, the necktie with a touch of silver glitter thread running through it, the wrap sweater……it ALL worked. This is just sooooo me! And if I can take a quick time out for some soapbox time; I have to tell you, the best part of this outfit is thrifted. If there are any of you out there who have not hit the thrift stores in your area, I’m asking you, “What are you waiting for?” There are treasures to be had!
