So I could have put up the pics from the tea party on Saturday, but HeidiG said, “take your time,” and since I do want to go home and see my precious kids AND I also want to make sure I do a well-thought out post and not some hurried entry, I am going to wait till tomorrow. I am glad I got permission from someone. I am weird like that. Does anyone else do that? Ask permission for something that you should be able to decide on your own? I have been doing that forever. My old professor liked to call that me being a “junior female.” He was probably my biggest advocate for me going as far as I can…and one day, Paul, I will, I promise.
Instead I present you with the outfit I wore on Thursday, May 7, 2009. I had a lot of fun putting this one together. For those of you who look at my polyvore sets you have seen it already.
A Little Yellow to Cinch Grey and White! by dinagideon featuring Marc Jacobs shoes
This is what the outfit looks like without the jacket. I think I like it. It is very ladylike. The skirt is my absolute favorite part. I saw that skirt at Macy’s like three weeks ago and did not get it (I couldn’t pay full price…nope, not at Macy’s…they always seem to have a sale). Then, the 25% friends and family card appeared. And I went to Macy’s and tried it on (squee…an 8…yay). The fit looks like it was made for me. It is a linen-cotton combo by Jones New York Collection. The top is J. Crew’s sequined crest tee (Holiday 2007). The belt is J. Crew’s yellow wide patent leather version (Holiday 2008). The shoes are from TJ Maxx but are from some well-known designer and are grey patent slingbacks with a bit of detailing at the toe-box (Fall 2008). By the way, when I figure out who made the shoes, I will edit this post and re-publish. I promise.
Well, I love this jacket. The J. Crew white canvas Atelier jacket is really pretty and feminine too. I think it looks okay with this skirt but I bet it would look really good with some tailored pants or a pencil skirt!
Have a nice day, ladies. Soon, soon, I will catch up to real time and you will actually be able to see me with the outfit I am wearing that day. Somehow—I will make this happen! :)
