Wearing Old and Older

Butterfly Earrings and Multi-strand Bracelet: Gifts from Hubby
Brooch and Blazer: Thrifted
Watch: Hubby's watch sized down
Dress: Macy's (clearance)
Navy Suede Heels: Gift from Mom

80s Blazer, meet 2013's Dress.  Wait, are you sure you've never met before?  You two are hitting it off like old friends!

I was pretty surprised how perfectly the Teal in the dress and blazer matched!  It might have went to my head a bit. :o)

I used the same trick as last time (Here) of layering a skirt under the dress to give it a smidge more length.  I even used houndstooth again.  How weird that I have two skirts in the same print and colors!  Usually I don't buy clothes very similar like that, but they have very different shapes so both keep passing my closet purges.  One is a pencil skirt (Here), the other is flippy (Here).

Pink Hippo Ring: Plato's Closet
Gold Hoop Earrings: Gift from Hubby
Tassel Necklace: Thrifted
Belt: Local
Diane Freis Dress: Thrifted
Butterfly Boots: TJMaxx (old)

I thrifted another Diane Freis dress!  Yay!!!  I could have worn it as it was, but I decided to remove the rather large collar.  I.Love.It!!!  I forgot to take a "before" picture though...Sorry!  I kept the collar to try to add it to a plain tee, maybe I can lay it on the dress and take a picture later.  Maybe, ...if I get around to it! :o)

I just loved the tassels on the dress, so of course I had to wear my tassel necklace too!  Because, you know, Two's company, Three's a crowd; Unless it's tassels...then it's a party!!!

My big guy got glasses!  Isn't he adorable?  I'm just a bit biased. :o)  He is just a little near-sighted, so he doesn't need to wear them all the time.  He just needs them for school to see the board at the front of the room.

Well, I can't ignore the dishes in the sink any longer...Bye!

Plaid, Plaid, Polka Dot, Plaid

 Hubby took that one without me knowing :o)

Vintage Necklace: Thrifted
Pearl Ring and Burberry Scarf: Gifts from Hubby
Coat: Thrifted
Top: TJMaxx
Belt: Local
Skirt: Thrifted
Boots: DSW (clearance)

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted!  Right after my last post we aaaallll got sick for what seemed like forever.  There was not much Dressing Up going on.  I think our church was pretty sure we had moved away. :o)

I bought this skirt with the intention of shortening it.  I still haven't gotten around to it, so I decided to wear it as is.  I like it, but I still want to make it more of a midi length.  I think it will give it more of a retro vibe.
