Translation: Too cold for comfort..
It was really chilly, last week! O_o o_O Summer needs to hurry the hell up and get here, already! I actually had the heater on in the house. *Sigh* Anyway, I had business to attend to, so that's why I'm looking all snazzy. ;) I was determined to avoid public transportation, so I needed something that was classy, but that would also allow me to ride my bike in relative comfort. I decided this outfit would do.
My partner was kind enough to snap these photos of me later in the evening after I got home. :P I love this red/white polka dot bow tie! It's so fun to play with. I feel so comfortable wearing ties. This is just additional proof that I should have been born a man. Haha! I'm pretty sure I could hack it. ;D
I wore an amazing gold buttoned trench coat, so the biting winds did not stand a chance. Screw you, wind! :D I got it on final sale over a year ago, but this is only my second time wearing it.
Also, I must mention that the white/black polka dot "blouse" is actually a dress! I do this kind of thing a lot. I have my reasons, though! Click here to see a different style with the same dress. It's so big on me that it looks like a hospital gown. I miscalculated when I bought it in a size large. Hehe. So, there's no other way for me to wear it, right now. I hope to replace it with a polka dot blouse and skirt, soon.
The beautiful cobalt blue elbow patch sweater is from Oasap. I wrote a detailed review about my shopping experience with them here if you're interested. I'm so happy with the quality of the items I have received from them. I also bought the cream version of this sweater and it is just as wonderful. The elbow patches are very well done and both sweaters were on sale for just under $40 each.
I got the eye-catching black and white skirt and black wingtip Oxford heels on sale. I forgot all about the skirt since I bought it back in Spring 2012. There's really no excuse. It's gorgeous and deserves to be well worn. I just have a lot of clothes. I should probably just not buy anymore clothes for the rest of the year. Hehe. Needless to say, its on my radar and I will wear it more often! The heels, on the other hand, I wear constantly! Finally, a pair of shoes that don't hurt my big old size 10 feet! Praise be to Zeus!
Oh well. One day, baby! One day. Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! <3
