Sorry I was MIA this week: our home computer caught the virus and my DH was trying to get it back to health. Also the work is crazy now: we were officially asked to work extra 10 hours a week because of tight deadlines - for the next 2 months. I don't have time at work even to look at the site and by the time I get home I am completely exhausted to comment on anything. :-( I will still try to post my weekly WIW as they help me to stay out of style rut though and here is this week's one.
Also sorry for the state of my hair - I have a long overdue appointment for tomorrow!
My attempt on the white summer suit with Melanie Lyne white blazer and Express Editors. I got this black tank at Laura last weekend very marked down ($75 to $12). It is long enough but the embelishment if not attached very well: I wore it once and already some applique pieces are coming off. It is good I got it on sale!
Midi skirt with flats! I know it is not for everybody's liking and my mom told me that this skirt is not as flattering on me as the length in #3 but I quite liked it.
Spanners midi skirt via consignment, BB shirt, Born teal flats.
I blame Shannon! I wondered into the mall a couple of weeks ago and how could I pass Cleo store after seeing so many amazing dresses on Shannon? Well, let me tell you that they don't look anything amazing on me. I guess Cleo is not a good brand in dresses for pear-ish bodies. I had to size up from my usual size to get the his fit but the top part was at least 2 sizes too big on me in this dress. I liked the pattern though so I bought it and my mom did her magic.
Cleo dress, CK denim jacket, Chromia bag, Fidji nude pumps.
Another find from my last weekend in the mall: striped shirt from Suzy Shier. I don't usually shop there as the quality is not to my liking but this shirt caught my eye with its almost architectural look. I am returning the NAS houndtooth shirt (too short) and this will be a substitution for a bold graphic white and black shirt.
I hope I don't look like a prisoner in it :-)
Here is another attempt on BF jeans - less structured this time and I liked this one too. I bought this linen sweater in Madewell during my meeting with Jonesy at NAS. The color is not my best - I think you can call it taupe - but together with the texture of the knit and a sparkle from a silver lurex thread I think it is not soul sucking at me. Bonus here: polka dot knit pattern (I hope you can see it in pic 6)
I thought of wearing my nude wedges for a leg lengthening effect but then I rebelled and decided to go with bold flat oxfords. I have also added my Parisienne polka dot scarf to echo the polka dot pattern in the sweater and animal print belt - just for fun. Does this less structured BF outfit works -what do you think?
Thanks for looking and helping me to to still look presentable even if my work is crazy now!
