Almost 60 degrees!

This look was inspired by Dirty Hair Halo. I love how she wears sheer black hose with socks on top, both shorter socks and over-the-knee socks.

I put on my sheer black hose this morning only to discover 3 large holes and a few runs. I wore them anyway, and stopped at the drugstore on my way to work to pick up another pair.

I picked up the silver nail polish (Sally Hansen Celeb City) at the Pittsburgh airport on Monday. I got there the standard 2 hours before my flight. Normally, security is crowded enough that I really do need to arrive that early. On Monday, I walked right through security; there was no line at all! With all that time to kill, I bought the nail polish, did my nails, bought a pair of boots on clearance at Nine West, and settled in to read some magazines.

This blouse doesn't button up very far, but I like it closed higher b/c the ruffles look better. This morning I stuck a bar pin on to close the blouse more and give it the look I prefer.

  1. This is a beautiful blouse! And I love it with the leather! very cool.

  2. I like the pin you used. Mimics the lines of the blouse. But if you want a more permanent solution you could use little snaps.

  3. The most cute and super lovely chic and cheap vintage clothes is here!

  4. I love the combination of the ruffly blouse with the leather jacket. I have a similar style blouse - what a great idea to use a bar pin to close the blouse - I'm definitely going to try that. The color of the blouse really makes your eyes pop - so pretty!

  5. Perfect blouse for St. Patty's Day celebrating this weekend!
