Hey, look: it’s the same blouse from yesterday, this time dressed up for the office. Well, sort of; this was a casual Friday ensemble, so we’re talking semi-dressed up. I paired it with my new Citizens of Humanity “Rocket” skinnies, which have the perfect high waist. Why did it take me so long to embrace the comfort that is the high waisted jean? I think visions of ’80s mom jeans made me skeptical, but I’m so glad I overcame my prejudices. For someone with a long torso and pearish shape (like, say, me), jeans like these are wonderful — not only for balancing proportions, but also eliminating muffin top.
Everything here is thrifted, down to the shoes. Speaking of which, these are the old Jimmy Choos I thrifted back in 2012 for $8 — one of my first big scores. I recently saw on IG that another local thrifter found the exact same pair at a VV in town. What are the odds, huh? I usually keep this pair at the office as my “emergency black pumps”, which is why you rarely see them in OOTDs anymore, but they are still going after all these years. There is a bit of peeling around the tip of one shoe, but nothing that a black Sharpie can’t fix. (Tell me I’m not the only person who does quick shoe repairs with a Sharpie!) These and my black Stuart Weitzman pumps will outlast me in the end, I’m sure.
