This cardigan polka dot combo was a favorite of mine when I was at the library.
I found the shirt at a Goodwill and took it in. All of these pieces are years old. When i find something that fits, I wear it out.

These are the most expensive shoes I've ever owned. They're from Anthropologie and I love the carved wooden soles. They remind me of Carmen Miranda.

Living in Colorado means layers since the weather can change by 30 degrees in one day.
You also need to carry a messenger bag to hold your layers as you peel them off.

Now this look I like. I got this sundress a couple of years ago and never wear it without a shirt underneath. Too much cleavage. I also like it belted ala Michael Kors. I tried bagging the dress above the belt, but it added more bulk than I needed. I have plenty of bulk on my own thankyouverymuch.

This one is sort of 'meh'.
I like the tank top because the pattern is Erte-like, but I'm still not sold on how it fits.
I also look really hippy in this pic. Hopefully that's just my funhouse mirror.
Let's just go with that.

I love dresses over pants. I know a lot of folks don't but I do and I'm glad that they are back in style. (Not that that's ever stopped me before)

I know I wasn't supposed to buy anything more, but I needed a white t shirt. That is a closet staple and I didn't have one. I love this sequin tank top but it needs layering. I'm also loving my Steve Madden knock off wedges from Target. I think this whole outfit, save the tank, is from Target.

I've also been Shrinky Dinking like mad lately, and cannot stop making chandelier earrings. I am teaching a dink class at the library next month so I will probably be burnt out by then.

Today's ensemble is nothing exciting. Everything old except for the sequin tank top that I got on clearance. I do like the cuffed pants with flats. It's sort of my nod to Audrey Hepburn.
I used to dress much more kooky when I was at the library. I was always striving for the 'naughty secretary' look. Then we opened a doggie daycare and my wardrobe became junky pants and a t shirt or sweater. Now I've decided that I will treat every opportunity as a party. I will dress up to go to the store and save the boring stuff for working around the yard.

Much more exciting grocery store wear.

Spring Cleaning = Refashioning

So the weather is warming up and I'm feeling the need to purge. But in the interest of cutting costs, I'm going to give my clothes one last chance before deciding if they need to be donated.

So today's refashion is a pearl button western shirt I got from a yard sale, 1969 flared jeans from the Gap, and last year's wedges from Target. It's sort of my Western Redux look.
