Feeling down in the dumps... I'll admit I did go shopping today. However it was 50% off everything sale at the GW, so I made like bandit and found some major goodies. First up, I found three dresses:
A cherry red vintage dress with 3/4 length sleeves and the most fab buttons. I've been watching this dress for awhile. It has a little love on it (vintage does mean aged) so I wanted to wait down the price. It fits lovely though, and warm enough for wintery wear. I will probably style it up first thing on Monday.
Next up a Newport News green midi dress. I loved the color and the odd neckline. It's a bit long on me, but I imagine I'll be glad for it come breezy hot summer days. I'm liking longer lengths right now anyway. Still unsure how I feel about the waistline on this. I don't have the most defined waist (naturally, I do a good job faking it with clothes). But I'm hoping comfort will outweigh the iffyness. I'll give it a go and if not, it may go onto someone else.
Finally this radical tie dye tee shirt dress. I can see tossing this on with a pair of sandals or tights and boots. I nearly passed it up, but it's cut large enough through the hips and length for my taste and the colors were so awesome. Hellloooo 90s flashbacks (I was obsessed with tiedye as a kid)
I snagged a pair of loose gaucho/yoga pants in black. I'm sure you can imagine them. I was searching for some colorful ones, but the only other pair I found was in red-brown... which doesn't go with most of my closet. I was hoping to a find a pair of harem-y pants pants, but for how 'popular' they seem to be, I haven't even seen a pair of fast-fashion ones in the GW.
After finding the Sherlock coat, I realized I didn't have a Purple Shirt of Sex (okay, BBC Sherlock fans will know what I mean) so I grabbed this Express shirt. I love express shirts. And if I finally get my new coat cleaned... I can do a proper Sherlock outfit.
The pièce de résistance for today: A pair of Doc Martens!!! Dark brown, totally rugged. A little chunky, but most docs are. Shopped all day in my Frye boots, but I'm sure these docs will be just as comfortable. I'm also super obsessed with the zipper, makes them quite easy to get into. A little research shows these are Dr. Marten Gammas. They remind me of my Frye harness boots, which were decidedly TOO tough for my delicate feet. These however are much lighter, but just as rugged.
And finally I found a little bee for my Sis, Sheila. Okay the bees are on the item, but just a teaser image for this because it's going to head on up to Canada where hopefully it will fit and she will love it as much as I do!
