Two Steps Forward, Two Steps Back

The Outfit Inspiration Calendar on Fab Finds Under $50's blog served as a reminder for me that yes indeed, opposites really do attract.  (Thank you too, Paula Abdul.)  I've worn this tie-neck blouse quite a bit of late, but hadn't thought of pairing it with my almost forgotten corduroy vest.  But, as it turns out, I love the feminine, delicate top juxtaposed with the menswear vest and wingtip shoes.  The purple tights keep me from looking too somber.  And can you believe I got this denim pencil skirt for $7 at Target?  As much as I sometimes drool over designer duds, I think it's much more fun to be a bargain shopper.  Don't you? (Also, I'm heading back outside soon I swear.  It just needs to warm up ever so slightly.  As much as you love seeing close-ups of my thermostat, I'm sure.)

  1. What a fantastic combo!! I am so with you on being a bargain shopper - if I could drop all the cash I ever wanted what fun would that be? Being a bargain shopper makes shopping more of a sport.


I really appreciate hearing from you!
