NWT

For those who know something about Canada, NWT means the Northwest Territories, that cold polar area up north where there are few trees and fewer people.  For thrifty fashionistas on the other hand, NWT means New With Tags and that's exactly what I got for $5 the other day: a NWT blue print tank!

I decided to wear it for the Visible Monday and Monday Mingle link-up:


Here is a closeup of the print, I really like it:

Being a matchy-matchy type of person, I then wore all sorts of other blue clothing. Tights:

and a bracelet got on the same trip for $2:

The only jarringly non-matching piece is my Spain futbol bracelet which I'm wearing for soccer:


Olé!

  1. Ole! haha I don't know how to make that little serif above my e like you did!

    Those blue fabrics are gorgeous! I love them together. I would have toned it down too by matching the rest. Too much can just be too much.

    1. Hi Joni! You have to do certain key combinations to get the e to come out like that. Thanks for visiting!

  2. That top is just incredible, I could stare at the print for hours, fantastic pattern and colours! I also love the blue/purple bracelet, it looks like semiprecious stones, but for 2 $ it can't be, or you've won the lottery with this one!

    1. Hi kaffe: I know! The blue print is like raindrops or (very tiny) peacock feathers or something.

  4. Beautiful colors in this outfit. And thanks for the lesson; I had not realized what NWT meant in either context.

    1. Hi Terri! I used to wonder too because you see it a lot on ebay (or nwot which means without) and then I just googled it one day et voila!
