Business As Usual

Business as Usual 1 Business As Usual 2 Business As Usual 3 Business As Usual 4 Business As Usual 5 Wearing:

H&M fitted blazer
Bebe basic black tee
Crochet skirt (from INC, I think.  It's super old)
Vintage quilted leather purse
Burberry watch
Linea Paolo booties/pumps
Chanel lipstick in "Desire"

I've had this skirt for about 9 years.  I bought it when I went shopping with my mom.  It was one of those crazy sales at Macy's.   In need of more business attire for my first real job, I took full advantage of that sale.  Wearing this skirt brings back memories.  Mostly bad ones, but still.   It reminds me of how far I've come and how I don't have to deal with certain things anymore.  While I don't miss working at a desk job, I do miss the pencil skirts and business attire I'd get to wear.  Last week I finally got the chance to pull this gorgeous skirt out of my closet and wear it out.

And funny thing is, 9 years later it's more "in" than it was back then.  I like it when that happens :)

  15. I feel like the "I bought this 10 years ago" is a common theme in your blog here. WHAT does your closet look like? Mine is in utter shambles right now. You guys getting rain? Finally having it here. The perfect day to go thrifting! No competition! Miss you mi azuziki.

  16. hello dear, long the look you have!

    I think it is so stylish and at the same time very feminine. I am so in love with the shoes, I am really keen on heels with ties such as yours-can both be a fit for more sporty outfit but looks amazing also the way you have paired them with a more elegant look.

    You should stop by www.fashionmemos.blogspot.com when you get the time, it will be great :)

    Many greetings from cold Denmark and hope to keep in touch.
