This new top, for instance, is extremely slinky and feels marvelous to wear, however, it's just a tad big and the neckline keeps sliding down lower causing me to have to continually adjust it up to a more comfortable level. Maybe it's also because I'm not used to wearing this level of chest baring top. I think I'm usually more covered up. But I did wear this to work and so didn't want to reveal too much...so I kept hiking it up.
The shoes are another story. I liked these so much when I bought them...and still do...but, after wearing them all day, have realized that these are another pair I will only be able to wear for 1 to 2 hours and with minimal walking. Not good for all day wear. They have a taller heel that I'm generally not used to (although the heel height of these were not a problem in walking), but a couple of the straps dig in after a while.
I'll call these my "date shoes". They would be good for a lunch or dinner date out.
I was wanting to become a bit more "practical" in my thrifting purchases and only get things that are comfortable and that I would get lots of wear out of...but shoes are hard to tell about until you've worn them for several hours. I'll keep these...for now... cuz they're kinda sexy...and the taller heel makes my legs look just a bit longer.
The blazer is brown, but looks much darker than it really is in this photo. It's new also. I have another brown one, but this one is a little bit longer style (which I like on me) and a smaller size so it fits a little better.
I liked how the caramel color in the top tied in with the little dot of the same color on the earrings and in the color of purse and shoes. I will also be wearing this top with brown slacks and black slacks in the future.
I'm linking up with Patti for Visible Monday at Not Dead yet Style and Thrifter's Anonymous.
