After reading Patti of Not Dead Yet Style's posts on 80's and 90's fashion, I was inspired to haul out an old blouse from that time period (80's methinks) for today's outfit.
I've always liked this blouse and could never bring myself to donate it. It's a double-breasted blouse with tucks in a lovely colour combination of charcoal, black and red. The print almost looks cartoony. And it has nice covered buttons.
I was trying to not wear a scarf today and instead did a mish-mash of necklaces at the neck. I think it looks okay.
I wore it with my New Year's skirt, the grey jacket from Sears, and the same shoes from the swanky lunch. The shoes are actually Naturalizers! I know right? lol-shoes. They are from the N5 line which are supposed to be contoured to the natural shape of a woman's foot making them more comfy I suppose.
They are part of the haul from the A+N Shoe Sale that happens once a year. I am not one for outrageous heels or super fancy shoes, but people have gotten $800 shoes there for 19.99. I think these ones are only about $90 normally.
I found a video featuring Jacqui Cohen (of A+N) talking about the sale from last year and you can see some of the fabulous shoes that are available. This year, they had 100,000 pairs of designer shoes!
