Winter Sun



Thanks again to everyone who commented in our give-away contest! Cath and I are attempting to take outfit photos as often as possible- even when our balmy Atlanta weather turns windy and cold (hence the tousled- yeah, we'll say tousled- hair and slight hunch of the shoulders... brrrr).




We're trying to be good recessionistas and "shop" in our closets. I pulled out this strapless Missoni-esque knock-off from F21 and slapped it on top of some American Apparel layers (dress and tank). The scarf in my hand is a vintage piano shawl I got a little while back... I'm obviously not quite ready to relinquish the fringe trend.

I love Cath's mix of raspberry and red with the muted sage of her pants. Simple, elegant... and acceptable in the office.

You ladies are looking so nicely colorful today!!! And very creative use of the remixed old clothing, I am a big supporter of the closet shopping spree. I have actually been contemplating a post to that effect, and this is definitely good inspiration!
