When desperate…shop your closet.Posted: December 15, 2014
Argh! dievca got roped into a last-minute Holiday Party. she had to make a decision on what to wear and pack it to wear after work. Did dievca mention she bikes to work and she was under a time crunch? Did she mention that she’s been insanely busy and didn’t have time for a mani/pedi, wax or even working out? No open toes, sheer tights, feeling like a blob…
Earlier in the month dievca admired this outfit and color combination from http://www.ilovegreeninspiration.com:
Of course she doesn’t own the top, pants nor the boots….
So, she shopped her closet:
–Broadway and Broom Velvet skirt with pockets -navy blue
–Gap Cowl Neck Tank -taupe/pink
–J Crew Sequin Wool Cardigan -navy blue
–Vintage Beaded Collar -grey pearls,gold beads, colored crystals
–Falke Tights -navy blue
–Roberto del Carlo Suede Boots -navy blue
And she ended up with this:
Not even close to the fabulous inspiration outfit, but something that would do in a pinch. At least the colors are close and dievca owns all the items. The tank and skirt could be steamed in the shower at work — everything else doesn’t wrinkle and the choker is from her Grandmother. Master should be happy with the outfit, too.
Please remind dievca not to say, “yes” next time~
PS. Since the outfit is very conservative, what about going wild on the Coat?
–Mike Gonzalez Wool and Silk Coat -taupe
