Over Here

I would say that bloggers usually fall into two camps - those whose outfits get oodles of compliments in real life, and those whose ensembles warrant snide remarks from strangers. I (shockingly) usually fall into the latter camp, but today it was a pleasant surprise to get oodles of compliments from lovely people on my lace top/pencil skirt. The lace top is new/old, I won it from a giveaway that The Clothes Horse was having. It's a beautiful piece but is so scratchy to wear!

I went thrifting this morning and the haul wasn't significant, but was pretty good.

Two pairs of shoes. Granny tapestry flats and chunky boots that remind me of Margiela tabi boots, without the tabi...

Sequin top!

Long sleeve lace top, by Linda Lundstrom (a Canadian designer). It's really cozy and the lace isn't see through, which is nice for a change.

i dont know why you would get snide remarks .. its so odd .. you are basically one of the only bloggers who truly has their own unique sense of style ..

Isa, do you know that your taste in clothes is evolving? I swear.
Nice haul by any measure.

Love the little granny slippers :)

I read your comment on tavi's blog about hole and thought - you might find my post useful. I am such a huge hole fan so I collected all the official music videos I could find and put them all in one post back in March. You can find it here -

I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT THE TWO CAMPS!! There are times when I will get tons of compliments and there are other times when I get nothing but stares and smirks from people!

You had some pretty awesome finds like the long sleeve lace blouse and those granny tapestry shoes...by the way did you go to Savers? that tag looks awfully familiar!

I love all of your outfits, and this one is very cute too.

I agree with what you said about bloggers falling into two categories. Don't you feel like sometimes its easier to post an outfit online for the world to see than it is to wear it in public, like say, going to the grocery store?
I think we all have experienced snide remarks or a weird look or two by people. But it doesn't matter as long as we feel confident in what we wear.

Nice finds!

I love the granny shoes, I really think I am unnaturally looking forward to being a granny. With the cardigans, overly embellished tops, lace and tea drinking all covered I am quickly on my way! I just hope I can pull off a purple rinse when my hair goes grey!

Savannah Burton said...
