What I Wore, Last Week of Classes
I doubt I'll ever manage IndigoAlison's wondrous feat of turning out a whole week's Wardrobe Watch at once, with commentary and analysis yet. But I did manage to catch Pater twice this week on mornings when I was dressed and ready to run for the ferry with a few minutes to spare. So two, two, two outfits in one post (two mints in one. . . does that old commercial for Certs still echo for anyone else? the joys of being a certain age, this mammoth trove of trivia in the memory bank).
Did you spot the anomaly above? Yes, I am wearing two different sorts of footwear -- does anyone else ever do this? try one shoe on one foot, a boot on the other, and then pose in front of the mirror, turning this way and then that, determining the best look?
So that was Thursday. Tuesday brought out a bit of leopard as silk chiffon trim on this knit tweedy-wool cardigan. Always fun to wear, but it doesn't get out too often as fun must be parcelled out judiciously, no? It's so cozy, though, that it might get out of the closet more often now, as winter is firmly ensconced (as it certainly is for our fellow bloggers and their compatriots in Paris, London, and other parts of Europe--brrr!).
Thursday, top photos. Dress, Sandwich; Boot, Fluevog; Brogue, Browns. In the end, btw, I substituted simple silver ball studs for those dangly earrings which just seemed too busy.
Tuesday, bottom snap. Tissue-weight olive-grey top, Wilfred (Aritzia); heavy jersey skirt (brilliant stretch, makes the pencil shape manageable), BCBG; cardigan, Simon Chang; shoes,Fluevog.
Now I have to go pack whatever I'm going to wear to the opera tomorrow night. I'll be blogging "live" from the lobby as I did for Lillian Alling, so I think I'll at least pick matching shoes. Tell me now, which ones do you think I wore Tuesday?
