'The Winter of Our Discontent'

I've been dying to do a laundry shoot and these vintageish machines are really cool. 



If ever I could be in love with a garment, it would be this skirt! I wore it first here because I just couldn't wait for the winter months to debut it. It's a lovely wool faille that can be worn in any season (which, of course, was my justification for spending close to $300 for it). Ah well.


A few months ago, I got a WHIT sample-sale email, and of course, hanging on the racks was this skirt marked half off. Pissed was I? You bet! I rarely get shafted on price. However, there was the blue version of the skirt (with grey belt - to be blogged shortly), so I slyly purchased it, threw my nose in the air as if I got one over on them and marched out proud as punch!


Do you ladies have a favorite item in your closet that you have in multiple colors?












I hope this to be one of the last posts I do indoors because of the freaking cold, clad in tights and millions of undergarments!  GOODBYE WINTER!  You will not be missed! 

I'm off ladies and gents for some rest and relaxation and for some much needed sun!  Hope to return with something cool to giveaway! 

What I'm Wearing:
Skirt: WHIT
Top:  cashmere crewneck - Lord and Taylor
           Orig.: $134.00
           Paid: $49.99
Shoes:  Joan and David
Necklace:  Juicy Couture
                     Orig.: $158.00
                     Paid:  $71.00
Rings: YSLPin It

  2. This is such a great idea for a shoot! It reminds me of the early 90s when my mother, brother, and sister used to do the weeks worth of laundry. Your outfit is incredible. You remind me of Audrey from Twin Peaks.

  4. I like this laundry shoot and the lovely skirt. I do not have a garment in different colors but I have shoes- same style in different colors.
    You look great.

  5. You look so good. What a lovely shoot!! One of the best I've seen in a long time. Hey, when I see something thats been marked down and I bought it for full price I just look at it as money is here to spend because you sure as hell cant take it with you when its all said and done.
