Visible Monday: Ellie Tahari edition
In the first look, I'm sporting a silk sweater with a strand of brass beads. In one blurry photo I'd added my leather jacket, the same color as the skirt, with this look.
In look number two, I thought of this silk brocade vest and drug out a green silk blouse to pair with it, a color combination I would never have come up with without the vest to suggest it.
In look number three, I'm sporting a vintage acrylic sweater with simple line highlights. I like the sweater, but think the color is too similar to the skirt. The look needs something. If I tuck the sweater in, the lines disappear and I don't like the sweater any more.
In look number 4, I've paired the skirt with a dusty rose brocade vest and casual pink blouse I often wear with jeans for a dressier look. Of all the looks, I think number 5 with a rust red sweater and belt is the look most likely to actually appear on campus one day this week. All items have been thrifted.
Today I am likely to finish the 75th of the papers I will have graded since last Monday. I get so grumpy when I have so many essays to grade that I have to do them in small batches of 5 at a time. There is light at the end of this tunnel. And I am emerging for Visible Monday, a weekly event sponsored by Patti at NotDeadYet Style. Come join us there.
