Tank: Talbot’s Outlet (one of my recent gold purchases) cream with gold foil streaks.
Wrap: Tabot’s Outlet (in the fall) it’s a heathered cream linen that’s a perfect weight for spring and fall. Very versatile.
Jeans: Walmart (shhhh … why do I end up with jeans from there?)
Shoes: Lauren Conrad leopard print ballet flat from Kohl’s. Loving these, they also go with a LOT.
Then there was the yoga capris I bought that had a foil leopard print pattern. This wasn’t actually on purpose. It was more because I didn’t like the pairs that had funky color tops and they didn’t have a plain black and I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket:
Close up of the leopard AND the Talbot’s tank’s gold stripes.
Then there are the nails.
Three coats of Essie in “A Crewed Interest” which is a Spring 2012 color.
Topped with a single stripe of Sally Hansen Crackle polish in “Antique Gold”
It’s a nice subtle effect that reminds me of gold leaf. And the peachy pink is like a less sheer version of Zoya’s Lulu. That “point shoe pink / peach” I had been looking for for years and suddenly found. Repeatedly apparently.
The gold crackle is actually a little preview of something I’m going to do a giveaway on sometime in the next month. So if you don’t normally read my blog, you might want to stay tuned by either subscribing to the rss, the emails or my twitter or youtube channels!
Are you wearing more gold lately? Is this a trend or just a weird accident that I’ve recently purchased more than one item that was gold foiled?
Next thing you know I’ll own a gold sequin mini skirt…. uhhh probably not anytime soon (though they are CUTE on other people!)
It’s spring cleaning time and what better way to get started than cleaning out your closets to make space for spring clothes as well as sort out spring clothes that you didn’t even wear last year.
Maybe it’s a great piece but a little too short on you. Maybe you even accidentally shrunk it so the size L is now a size S. Or maybe you’ve been exercising like an maniac and lost weight. Get these clothes out of your house – someone else might be able to fit into them!
I’m not going to deny that I don’t sell some of my better quality used clothes via ebay and consignment shops (the consignment shop I go to gives the unsold items to Goodwill) but this doesn’t make sense on some things and can be a huge investment of time.
When this is the case, I drop off my clothes (and other odd n’ ends) with Goodwill. It’s not just good for your closet, it’s also good for the economy because Goodwill trains people and helps them get better jobs.
