I love walking into Gigi’s high school art room…it is a banquet for my senses. I can sit in her room and visit Rome, France, Italy, and LA, all at the same time. I leave each day creatively challenged. This is why I have been doing my Outfit-of-the-Day (OOTD) looks in her room…so much more fun than mine. Like comparing a newsroom to a museum….depends on the mood you are in…do you want to feed your curiosity or your creativity??
I try to enter my closet with the same sense of wonder. At the moment, shopping must occur within my wardrobe….no funds for hitting After Christmas Sales! If you are a new reader, you should know that many of the pieces I showcase on the blog have been in my wardrobe for years…seriously, years. The most shopping I am doing currently is at Goodwill, provided for me by Goodwill!
Today’s look was a long shot…but I like it. The red zipper jacket is a garment I purchased at Marshall's perhaps four years ago and one I wear in the summer because it is very lightweight. But, here I am wearing this jacket as a blouse underneath another jacket. The reds, brown, and green just seem to go together. What I like most about it is the flattering fit. Because of the zipper and the form fit of the striped jacket, the appearance is slimming…my favorite way to look, of course!! I also like the fact that these two jackets together cost $18....I bought the striped at a Macy's Red Apple Sale for $5...the other for $13! The olive green denim is last fall from Lane Bryant.

This is the most colorful outfit I have worn since we started back to school. Tomorrow I will show you where my wardrobe has been a little stuck since the weather turned cold.
