Big Disk

It's amazing how the clothing we wear is so attuned to how we feel, what we see and of course the weather.  I've been feeling cold even indoors so decided to go with my taupe cardi again.

Pink Calico: Bumpy Pyramid Top

I wore it with one of those stretchy tops that look like they are made of little pyramids all joined together.  These tops start off tiny - about the size of a three-year-old's shirt.  This one, although new, was quite stretched out so it was only $3; I've never worn it much previously perhaps because I usually tried it with all dark colours and it just did not work.

I think the taupe cardi lightens it up though, so it looks okay.  I also wore a new to me necklace that I found on the weekend.  It was $5 which seemed a bit steep, but I liked the big disk thing - it reminds me of a jade necklace except that the colour's all wrong.  I really should try waiting for the 50% off sales for these impulse buys, but then they wouldn't really be impulse buys would they?

It wasn't warm enough to doff the cardi until I got home, but here is what it looks like without the sweater.

I was off to visit clients again, so finished with some sturdy shoes.

  1. I've often seen those teensy-weensy tops while out thrifting, but never bought one because I was SURE it would make me look ginormous! I see that on YOU it looks GREAT! So, maybe next time I spy one, I'll give it a whirl! btw...How do you put those colored borders around your photos?

    1. Hi Susan,

      I have a couple of those stretchy tops and they look okay - they stretch a lot. I did have to sew one closed because it was button-front...

      As for the borders, you have to go into the html and add some code. It's finicky though - the slightest mistake and things could not work and you are stuck.

    1. Thanks Terri! The disk has some heft which I like, and is relatively neutral - I'm hoping it will go with lots of stuff.
