What to Wear Wednesdays

This is what I wore to my husband's holiday party, every item is second hand, except the tights...

 


The shirt was given to me by a friend over 5 years ago...it has been the most versatile shirt I own. Being an older shirt circa early nineties I presume, it is very short waisted, so ideal for under dresses or with high pencil skirts. The skirt was purchased at a fabulous consignment store, Current Boutique for under $30. The mary jane Cole Haan shoes were also bought at Current Boutique and they are my current favorites, mostly because my one cat has taken a liking to chewing on my dress shoes...bad kitty!

And last, but not least the necklace is vintage and was given to me by my mother-in-law. It was a gift from my father-in-law to her 35 years ago. I am so blessed to have both her. She treats me with so much love and respect. I love her dearly! Thanks Djamilah!! 

And yes I changed Fresh Quince's background....ahhhhgain! Pink it's whats for dinner ;)!

    Loretta...I am trying to highlight my outfit and not me, I really don't want this to be about me. I just want to share with everyone that it is easy to build a wardrobe out of second hand clothes. But, maybe I'll change my mind if everyone thinks it looks silly...we'll see. But thanks for the compliment...so sweet!
