What I’m Wearing

Ugh, my toes! Wearing heels those few hours Saturday, I’m still paying for it!! (I ended up changing for church that evening)

What I wore Saturday night


All things worn previously (I think)

So on to today!


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Target
Blouse: Kohls
Skirt: Kenneth Cole (purchased 5+ years ago)
Slip: Vintage “flounce” slip.
Brooch on skirt: vintage from eBay
Shoes: Miu Miu
Handbag: Coach, dark brown leather

I got the idea for the brooch from a display in Dillards, oh 8 or 9 years ago? And the slip peeking out from Legally Blonde (I adore that movie!! She is so right! About men and shoes. I have taught my husban about good shoes. Of course now he scoffs at me when I search for shoes at target, usually in vain!)

Here’s my bag


Detail on the brooch


And my sparkly Miu Mius! I really adore these shoes (excuse my swollen feet!! It’s a tad humid here this morning, I tend to have swollen joints on these days)


I think I have decided which pair of shoes I am going to strass. Now to pick a crystal color!!

And later, I will make an attempt to post my giveaway winners! Yes, there will be 3!!

Until next time,


Giveaway Update

As promised earlier, and update to my giveaway that ends tomorrow!!

Here are the brooches, both are vintage pieces


Yes, there is something else in the box! But I won’t reveal it until I announce winners!

And I’m adding a second item (so, two prizes, two winners!) two passes to AMC theatres! These are Silver Passes, so there are some restrictions


I’m not sure how many entries I’ve had, I need to sit down and count. But, if it’s over 100 (that’s not 100 different people, but 100 entries amassed the different ways I’ve spelled out), I will add a pair of Kate Spade shoes as another prize, making it 3 winners.
