I come bringing Goodwill

I shop at Goodwill. Today's blouse I am wearing comes from goodwill. I have gotten many complements on this blouse since I have purchased it and worn it to work and I am sure that I would recieve many more if I could lose another 10 lbs or so that would make it completely comfortable around my midsection. but no one seems to notice or care, they just complement away. I am wearing it today. It is a wrap style top with a floral/paisley design in white over a black background. The neck has a band of delicate polka dots that matches the band at the waist that wraps like a sarong. (At times like this I wish I had a digital camera and someone patient to take my picture repeatedly as I am sure that I would be disappointed with the vast majority of the shots of myself that would be taken.) Actually, my boyfriend really came to the rescue! He allowed me to take pictures on his phone and email them to myself so yay! (They are a little blurry in spots, but now I have a visual!
Here is the top:

I have paired my goodwill top with a black knit skirt that has a floral pattern with velvet leaves and beads on the front. Suprisingly I found this at the place begining with W, who like Volde...ahem...I mean, is a name we shall not mention. But Walmart (oops, I said the name) even Walmart like a squirrel, a dutiful squirrel, can sometimes find a nut.

I wear my loafers every where. In the work that I do, which sometimes unexpectedly requires alot of standing I tend to wear them instead of my more fashionable uncomfortable heels. I am wearing them today. They are black and from target. The only color that I have on besides black and white, is my burgandy/red purse with a silver chain handle, that I take everywhere also from target. I have not reached the point the year where I start to wear tights (usually black or black in a pattern of some type with an outfit like this) so I have none on.

Here is another of the outfit, and me with a very silly look on my face:

Here is the purse:

And a closeup of my makeup today:

  1. I like how this top mixes patterns, as pattern mixing is one of my favorite things to do!
