What I Wore: One splash of neon with double denim
The outfit started with the 20 year old Country Road chambray shirt. The plan for the day was the movies.
100% cotton in a thick deep chambray.
20 years old bought from the Birkenhead Point clearance store. Probably for no more than $50.
I bet there's not alot of you who remember this label format?
I like the fact that the cotton has body so the collar sits nice & the curved hem.
For me this was the exciting part of the outfit. Its the first time I have worn a touch of neon with metals.
STYLE TIP: Keeping the collar closed really makes shirt necklaces pop.
1. The multi disc yellow & silver look necklace is from Belinda & I think it was about $180. It weighs a tonne.
2. The neon pink elastic is a La Loop French eye glasses holder with sterling silver lobster clasp. I think it was reduced to $90.
3. The rectangle clear bling is a $3 Target piece.
I like the way these sat - I had to adjust the closures on them so they didnt overlap.
Mania Mania snake rings in silver tone & in gold tone.
One is the head, the other the body & the other the tail.
Cute but base metal & overpriced at $70 on sale from $130.
I never go to the movies without a blanket.
Blanket = a cashmere/silk pashmina.
Even in the middle of summer, movie theatres get cold & I need a blanket.
The pashmina is from the early 90s and as far as I am concerned, they will always be in fashion in winter.
I also have an identical cobalt version I considered wearing, but in order to make the neck bling stand out, I decided to tone in the pashi rather than wear a stand out.
Paid a fortune for her but she is worth every cent.
Not Your Daughters Jeans
Double denim rules.
Rolled up at the cuffs in a sloppy way - like boyfriend jeans.
When the jeans are that sloppy, I demand a heel.
When I want a comfy heel, I seek out wedges.
I have a pair of YSL cork wedges on a navy patent with a closed round toe. I wore them so much, I went on ebay & looked for the later season cousins.
STYLE TIP: If it works, buy multiples.
These wedge loafers came up in black patent. They were the next season's version and the wedge, instead of being cork is a rubber & textured finish. I literally bounce when I walk in these.
About $120, new and that was alot cheaper than the cork version!
See you tomorrow.
