8-10 September 2015: Autumn!

Ridiculously hot weekend, now appropriately cool. Unfortunately, that appropriately cool came in by way of thunderstorm. That I was caught in.

Tuesday: still hot. I pretty much hid away all holiday weekend, directly in front of a fan, reading. Because it was in the 90s.

Wednesday part 1: Drowned rat. Seriously. Rained so hard that I couldn’t even keep my eyes open in the force of it. I was at the consignment store when it hit and had to try and run the two blocks to work. It didn’t go well.

I always shy away from these jeans. Should I continue to? They’re very comfy, but are they flattering?

I’ve forgotten how to dress for 60s/70s. LOL I know I did a lot this summer, but in summery ways. Now I need to do it in autumnal ways. It’s always a transition.

A better bridge to autumn, I think. 70s are still pretty pleasant. Sandals still work, I think.

Consignment fun:

I bought the skirt, $6. It’s a little too big, but it’s just so perfectly 40s that I needed it. I love the sweater, which is Kate Spade, but it’s $50 and while the fit is nice, that bow is a little odd.

I super loved the corsety/laceup of the waist, but it just fit too oddly, boo. I have been drooling over lace up everythings for quite some time. Which is why I am currently madly in love with Top Shop

Check LOOK at this amazing top:  Lace Up Top. It’s just like the one I fell in love with on Sally Draper last year on Mad Men, only not in purple. I really quite badly need it.

Let’s be honest, though. I want that whole damn outfit. I adore my JCrew button up skirt, and have been wanting to sew my own. They can’t be that hard, right?  But now they are buyable! Several here, more at H&M. I want, I want, I want.

And the shoes! Lace up shoes! I tried on ghillie style sandals last fall and loved them a lot, but they didn’t fit properly. I’ve been looking on and off since then, and now I can find some.

Also, block heels:  I don’t like the print or loafter style, but these block heels in a pump style are exactly what I’ve been wanting for over a year. Very 60s/70s.

My mom has always said I was pretty good at predicting trends and trying to find them a season or two before fashion catches up to me, ha. I am very delighted that I apparently still have the knack. But I am in a low spending period because of the Christmas/NYC in January double whammy, augh. It’s sort of heart breaking. So far, Forever 21 hasn’t picked up on this trend, but I’m definitely getting that first top, and definitely wanting to check out what cheap stuff H&M has, too. But augh, timing!!

  1. LOL at the drowned rat comment! Geting caught in a t’storm then having to go back to work, ugh!
    LOVE the blue Kate Spade sweater top – pony up the $50 or talk em down on the cost ‘cuase that top looks great on you! Dig the skirt too!
    Can’t say I like the orange & blue splatter corset tunic number. There’s just too much going on with it.
    Hey, you should do a whole post just on your Marvel jewelry. Would love some close-up’s of everything in a single post – especially with the holiday season barreling down on us! Hehe
    As far as watching your coins for your upcoming NYC trip – maybe consign or Ebay some of your lesser worn items to get newer stuff.
