Sunday Best Silk
Hello there readers! Is your week off to a good start? Mine has begun with my cleaning job yesterday and a little cleaning of my own house today. What better way to start off the week than with freshly vacuumed carpets, eh? ;) Please tell me I'm not the only one who cannot spell "vacuum" without spellcheck....
On Sunday, I wore one of the consignment store finds from our vacation. I've been wanting a tie-neck blouse for a while, and found this one for $4.00 - it is 100% silk! Its billowing sleeves are almost theatrical, but with the right skirt, this blouse has an elegant, retro look. Me finding a pure silk blouse for $4 is just one testament of the "little" things the Lord blesses us with.
For church, I tucked the blouse into a cute checkered skirt that Mom handed down to me. Heeled brown oxfords were the obvious shoe choice. A belt in coordinating colors pulled everything together and helped define my waist. A slick bun updo completed the classy secretary/schoolteacher look.
Outfit Details: Blouse ~ Consignment Store; Skirt ~ Hand-me-down; Shoes ~ Payless;
Belt ~ Some Store @ Mall?
Well, I am tentatively planning to post this weekend about shopping at and donating to second-hand stores. Is there any ground you would like to see covered in the upcoming post? Let me know in a comment if there is. :)
