Exit Glamour!

Wednesday, August 24, 2011
My skants are back! That's officially my new favorite word thanks to Cat. I fixed the button but it just means I have to starve myself all day to wear these. And that's never going to happen. Not when chocolate chip cookies exist.

I love the idea of tying button-ups at the bottom thanks to Jenni! This outfit made me feel old (like classic-old, not like grandma-old - actually, I can see it now..) and glamorous...like Katharine Hepburn, which is weird because I've never seen any of her movies. But I did see The Aviator. Does that count?

I'm wearing a Gap shirt ($12), vintage culottes ($6), JCPenney pumps (free), and a vintage bag ($15) with vintage earrings that you can't see ($1).

  16. Love this look so much!  I am sorry, though, The Aviator doesn't count at all! :)  I'd recommend The Philadelphia Story and Holiday for your first Hepburn movies.  You'll be glad you did! :)

  17. like how simple this outfit is but tres chic

  18. I really like the simplicity of this outfit. I never think to tie the bottom of a blouse.  I grew up watching Audrey Hepburn movies. You out to watch one. She is so feminine and classy!

  21. I love the word SKANTS!

    Even though you keep telling us that they're pants, I am still fooled into thinking you're wearing a skirt. You look gorgeous in it!

  22. Just looking at this makes me feel effortlessly elegant, and I'm not even the one wearing it. The skants are amazing.

  25. so, i read that as "my skanks are back" like 3 times, i just kept re-reading it and i knew that couldn't be right.


    i think i might need to try the tie-the-shirt trend. you look so cute!

  26. Love this classic look - def not a grandma old look! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think it looks so pretty! The tying really accentuates your super tiny waist! (im serious)

  34. I couldn't believe these were pants from the last time you wore them. I could only tell today on the behind shot. :o) You look great in them! Way to rock something "different". I've never seen anything like them before!

  35. Beautiful!!!

  36. I think this outfit is super elegant, AND it looks really comfortable! (minus the top bottom of course, I usually just let those go anyway :)

    Very Grace Kelly!

  38. I thought you were wearing a skirt - even cooler that they're vintage culottes ($6?!?!?!).  You look amazing in them.  Great shirt, too.  Oh, and don't get me started on your gorgeous hallway backdrop again...

  39. I love the skants They have got to be my favorite of all of your pieces I've seen here.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh, the glorious skants! They look fantastic with the crisp white button up. You do look old Hollywood glam in this outfit. But I was thinking more Audrey than Katherine.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I really love those pants on you, too bad they're a bit small.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Katharine would feel honored.  If you get a chance, check out Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story (you've never seen this one??? ;P), or Desk Set.  KH used to annoy me, but my wife is a fan and eventually she (KH) grew on me.

  43. I love the skants! Actually the whole outfit is pretty great. I'm always jealous of your tiny waist.
