Ladies Room Fashion Show. Week of February 21st.

Hello my loves!  I’m back again with this week’s work clothes line-up. Can you believe it’s Friday already? I’m not complaining or anything, but seriously, how did it get here so fast?!?

Alright, let’s get this show on the road.

Monday (On my front porch because I left work early for a midwife appointment) This outfit isn’t my favorite by a long shot, but it was super comfortable. It feels very “mom-ish” to me.

Cardigan: Forever21

Dress: Maternity hand-me-down (I forgot to check the label to see where it’s from)

Belt: This gorgeous vintage belt buckle once belong to my GodMother’s grandma. Her name was Alderetta (how fabulous!) and I sewed it to a piece of elastic and wear it constantly

Shoes: Steve Madden about a thousand years ago. The wedge, t-strap, and mixed metallics  have made them a classic go-to shoe for atleast 4 years now.

Tuesday

Booo! The cold weather came back. Seriously, did mother nature not get the memo from Mr. Groundhog. I want my spring and I want it now!

Floral Tunic: Target (an old staple from my EV maternity wardrobe)

Crochet Vest: Forever21

Braided Belt: Vintage

Jeans: Gap Skinny Maternity

Boots: Vintage Zodiac. I bought these boots in college and got into a bidding war for them on ebay. I wanted them BAD but I was making next to nothing as a waitress. With a little encouragement from my room mates, I wound up bidding all the way up to $100 for them which was WAY more than I should have spent (or could really afford) at the time but the investment proved worthy as I’ve worn them for years and years.

Wednesday This was my favorite outfit of the week. A coworker told me I looked like I could be in the movie Beetlejuice, which made me laugh. I felt very circus-y and kept wishing I could get away with wearing a little top hat.


Sweater: Forever21

Skirt: Asos

Belt: Vintage (I dug it out of a big bin of leather belts at Held Over on Haight St)

Tights: H&M - and probably the last time I can wear them until next fall. They have gotten too tight for this baby bump!

Shoes: Seychelles. My mama bought me these maryjanes for my birthday a few years ago from a little shoe boutique in the Castro. I wear them constantly!

Vintage Sailboat Pin: I’ve been wracking my brain to figure out where I got this! Was it a gift? A family hand-me-down? A little goody from our old next door neighbor Mike, who used to run a vintage shop in Lower Haight and was always giving us random trinkets? Any of the above are a possibility!

Thursday

No Photo Available! I worked from home in yoga pants and Brent’s old Che Guevara t-shirt plus a really ratty ponytail. I was such a raggamuffin last night that Brent actually said to me “Honey, you should really take a shower” hahaha. yikes!

Friday It’s nearly 70 degrees outside and I keep debating taking these tights off.

Cardigan: Forever21

Top: H&M

Vintage Flamingo buckle Rope Belt: Bluebird

Skirt: Made by Woo. Another EV pregnancy wardrobe staple that I’ve pulled out again. I bought it at a little boutique in Hayes Valley after a brunch date with some of my girlfriends. I love the color, the length,  the big pockets and the stretchy waistband.

Tights: Target. ahhhh, I can breath! Atleast this pair still fit.

Shoes: Qupid. go-to black work wedges.

Another work week on it’s way out the door!  What are your plans for the weekend?

Love,

M
