Daily Outfit: 7/1/10

Turquoise tee, American Apparel
Pleated skirt, thrifted
Red patent platform sandals, Kork-Ease via eBay
Red patent belt, thrifted at ARC’s Value Village
Red necklace, rokdarbi
Red bangle, thrifted

These shiny red platforms are my fantastically comfy, 8-hour, walking-around-at-a-summer-art-fair shoes. I had no walking to do today. They just matched my shiny red belt. (Pretty sure they’re the Ava model, if you want to hunt down a similar pair.)

I picked up this skirt on Monday while shooting a TV spot at a local consignment store. That print just CALLED to me:


All of my favorite and most-worn colors are represented. OK, all of them besides plum. But still! What a fun and versatile floral! And in my favorite, full, pleated silhouette. It looks a little circus-y from a distance, but I’m OK with that. Maybe I should try hiding a calliope under there …
