Wore this to church on Sunday. Funny story... I play the organ once a month and was late yesterday...but made it just in time for me to play the first hymn. As I pressed down on the keys, no sounds came out!! Elaine 0 - World 2

I was so proud of myself for wearing almost all vintage. But then my mass-produced Target clogs got in the way...like always. (JKlawl. I love 'em.)

I got this pleated skirt the same weekend I got this skirt and these shoes with my expert thrifter friend. It's from Japan so naturally I can't breathe when I wear it. Guess I'm never wearing it again.

I'm wearing a reworked vintage cream blouse (giveaway win from Raleigh Vintage), vintage tan belt ($5), vintage plaid pleated skirt ($5), and Target clog sandals (gift from in-laws) with a vintage Gucci bucket bag ($3).

  9. You are a vintage allstar!! This outfit is great. And I can't believe how little it cost.

  10. I love the length of the skirt. That's one wonderful thing about vintage skirts...they're usually a more modest/wearable length than what you find in the stores now.

  13. Did you play organ in those shoes? If so, I would high five you from across the country. My voice teacher is an organist, and he always wears jazz shoes to play.

  26. Coworkers peer into my office looking worried, as I screech out in envy at the $3 vintage Gucci bag.

  54. Where can I find me a skirt as great as that? I don't care if I can't breathe, I just need something half as gorgeous. I also can't get enough of that blouse with the little bow tie detailing. Ugh. Kills me.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love your skirt, and tie neck blouse. Sorry the organ was mad at you. Next time you will show it who's boss.
