This morning at 715 the Man came back in the bedroom and said "hey, what are you doing" I replied "it's Saturday" with his humor in full swing he said "are you high? Get up! It's Thursday and you've got to be at work in 45 minutes!
So that's how my day started. Thinking it was Saturday yea! and finding out I had two more days to work boo!
This is what I wanted to wear to work today. My brand new poncho was gifted to me by my little friend at the lake. She told me she bought it in Tuscon 30 years ago and just feels like it's to much on her. It is hand woven, wool and still has the artists tag inside. I was so happy. My newest addition to my poncho/cape collection! It was poncho love! But I wasn't sure if my work buddies were ready for this. They pretty much ignore what I wear (I'm sure there are some rolled eyed looks behind my back) as they march in everyday wearing their little uniforms of jeans and sweatshirts.
The next step was trying to style it where I didn't look like the abominable snow man. I tried it loose, full belting and finally came up with what I'll call the half belt. I left the back flowing and just belted the front for shape.
I think it came out pretty good.
So tell me would you wear this to work? Or save it for the weekend?
I'm linking up with Dawn at Spunky Chateau for Thursdays are for Thrifters This is one of my favorite link ups and I look forward to it every week.
This week my outfit star is of course the poncho...........but take a look down, yep, all the way down. See those little caramel beauties on my tootsies? Those are my newest thrifted designer booties! I love them.
They are made by Etienne Aigner and are a wonderful soft leather. They retail for $55.00 and I paid $3.70.
The price tag was still on them and they are truly barely worn.
I was actually surprised that the retail price wasn't higher. The leather is incredible and there is some top stitching as well.
I will admit I took them to the shoe shop for a little stretching and even the clerk said "nice boots"!
I am so glad I found that place. When you get to be a "Silverstyle" age all kinds of hinky things start happening to your feet!
I picked them up tonight and they feel wonderful. I say that was $7.00 well spent!
These jeans are old friends to me now they were thrifted, new with tags for $5.00
The scarf is also a new thrifted piece. I think it softens up the poncho.
And the bag is a Walgreen's special for $5.00
Well, happy preweekend to all. I'll be putting up a Trending link up tonight or tomorrow.
To those of you who participated this week, thank you! Sometimes I feel like I'm just spinning my wheels, this week made it feel worthwhile!
