Bling From the Vaults

This was an outfit I wore between Xmas & New Year's Day, but didn't get a chance to post then. My husband & I went to an engagement party for one of his distant cousins who was in town from London (along with a lot of extended family). I like to dress up for these things, even when I know most people will be in jeans & tees. This is *my* dressy casual.

What I wore:
Black T-shirt with corsage detail, NY & Company | Black & white striped cardigan, Chadwicks | Hot pink skirt, NY & Company | Black tights, Calvin Klein | Black T-strap pumps, Aldo | Pink dangly earrings, gift from Sarah | Black cocktail ring, random accessory store

These earrings are super-cool but freakishly heavy. I can't wear them for a full day or they'd stretch out my ears!


  1. I've never understood why they can't make heavy earrings that are somehow better supported when you wear them.

    Love the hot pink.

    I bought a jacket (and am wearing it tomorrow) that made me think of you. It epitomizes "Goth" for me.

  2. The skirt has a very flattering cut. The earings are lovely too bad that they are heavy.

  3. I know! These earrings are solid hunks of glass, but perhaps the heaviest glass known to humankind. Weird.

  4. Thanks! I think I'll get a lot of wear of this skirt (a new purchase, mentioned the other day).
