Two outfits for Saturday

Finally posting yesterdays outfits! I got so delayed because my typical Saturday night is spent in front of my computer, but last night I actually went out, and not just out to dinner home by ten - but out to a bar and danced on a balcony until last call. It was fun.

So without further ado;

This week is my style challenge to wear the clothes I haven't worn in ages, or ever.

Day Six: Shattered Glass Skirt
Last worn: Never
Shattered Glass Skirt

This was a Target clearance find from last August, and it had quite a few negative reviews because of the pleats on the rear and girls getting upset about how it made their bums look big - I however, saw it as an opportunity to fit mine into a juniors sized skirt. I think they are cute.


I love layering necklaces, and I took the chain necklace which already has seven chains, added the long pearls and then to top it off, attached a cameo I grabbed on clearance at Joann Fabrics and hooked it on with a stray lobster clasp I happened to see on the floor.

I did style this skirt a few weeks ago for Eyeliah's virtual Birthday party, but I didn't actually wear it that day.

Later... for an evening out I went to my grey bubble dress, which I wore last time I went out in Amsterdam.

Day Six and a half: Grey Bubble Dress
Last worn: September 2009 (yeah, I haven't been out to a bar in five months)
Night Out

I can't help but to be a little sensible when going out into the frigid winter evenings. I wore my tights and my boots, I even put my little cardi-vest on for an extra layer. I also wore my wool coat -- I would rather deal with a bulky coat inside than get hypotherma outside without one. And I saw quite a few girls in mini skirts, tanktops, stilettos and nothing else freezing outside. What are they thinking?

Since I'm a day behind now, the winner of pencil skirt showdown tomorrow! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

You do look amazing in that last photo! You work color so well, but the tonal grey/black is an understated and elegant change.
