When: Thursday March 24, 2011

Striped dress: Used to be my mom's
Black blazer: ? (Panama)
Heels: Payless Shoe Source
Bow clutch: Forever XXI
Star ring: Claire's

Went to work and also visited a fair filled with all sorts of vendors! There were so many pretty things and yummy food samples :)

Today I am wearing this fabulous black blazer that I never wear. I have had this blazer since before I can remember! My mom bought it for me about 7 or 8 years ago. It really wasn't my style back then, but she convinced me to get it by saying: "You may need it someday". Well, truth be told, I think I wore it once in the last 7 years until today. I'm so happy I kept it because it's so chic and versatile! I love it!

I thought today's black & white outfit would look good with the cat-eye make-up. I'm not that good at making the thick-black-liquid-eyeliner line on my eyes, but I managed to do it pretty good this morning! That made me happy all the rest of the day :)

Do you still have something in your closet that you bought a very very long time ago?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this striped dress:

  2. I love your dress today Marie! So cute...and the blazer just adds that finishing touch that completes it. Cute!

  3. I don't have anything from a long time ago as nothing back then would fit! I am the smallest I have ever been, which I am very happy and proud about. :)

    Cute blazer. My dad would also make me wear things like this 7-8 years ago but I wouldn't want to wear it at the time- haha. How funny time changes...

  4. I love the dress and blazer! This looks very work appropriate but is also perfect for a night out :D

  5. You have great blog a outfit :),i´m yours new follower !

  7. I have a few things from 15-20 years ago. just a few. And it is funny how I'll start wearing them again (and a few pieces I've let go that I wish I still had!) I love the pink bows on your shoes! And how polished this outfit looks.

  8. I absolutely LOVE this outfit! So chic!
