I’m in the mood for miniskirt suits too…

How psyched was I…
 when I came across an article in Lucky Magazine’s January issue...
 on the return of the miniskirt suits!!
This suit is practically vintage... as I’ve had it for close to 15 years?!
When it passed its style-prime…I couldn’t bear to let it go!
And even though it’s from Maurices…
I considered it an investment piece based on my income at the time.
I ran to the upstairs closet…
where all the “I know it will come back in someday” pieces call home…
(I may be on Hoarders some day?!)
I found it still in like-new condition after all these years!!
I may change out the buttons though.
I thought I’d update it with the textured tights, socks, and boots…
new to this trend…hope I did it ok…go easy on me?! ;-)

This necklace (purchase here) was a birthday present
 from my husband last year…
a heart engraved with a photo of my beloved Binx & Bianca.
I attached it to a sterling silver toggle-chain
as inspired by Tiffany & Co.
Speaking of my beloved…Bianca couldn’t pass a photo-op!
Once the snow subsides…I plan to brighten the suit up with a
crisp white blouse, silver-stud belt, and booties!

I do feel Lucky!!

  2. Sometimes I'm worried someone will look at my closet and write a letter to Hoarders about me!

    =)

    I love your entire outfit today. Btw, I've decided that WE are going for our project, yes? We're gonna keep it a li'l secret and announce next week, ok?

    Another note, did you see my give-away?


    Stay Happy and Positive!
