Yet another New Things installment!
Sometimes I like to add a couple cheap items to my wardrobe just to freshen things up a bit. This polka dot knit blouse was one of those. It’s a Target blouse that I got while thrifting last week for all of about $2! It’s a lovely brown with pink polka dot. I’m not sure about the tie part in the middle – I may eventually replace that with a more elegant silk ribbon.
The gray pants were a recent find at a Banana Republic Outlet. The price was good for a BR item ($45) but they’ve ended up costing me a bit more than I had wanted. I didn’t realize til I got home that they are dry-clean only (always read the labels). These were also bought pre-polyester ban, so they’ve got a good bit of synthetics in them. And I had to get them professionally hemmed, because they’re lined and I just didn’t want to mess with that.
Still, I’m happy with them overall, and they’re quite flattering.
My pearls have shown up on here before, but I don’t think I’ve really talked much about them. I debated for awhile over which strand of pearls I wanted to buy on Etsy, and I finally settled on this lovely set by CoryellDesign. She made the necklace a custom length for me and made matching earrings. I highly recommend shopping with her!
(For some reason, my polka dot blouse is making my tummy look like it has a bump in these pictures. No worry folks, I’m on the pill. I’ve just been eating a few too many cookies lately)
