January 11th - Blogger/Web inspired Look

The inspiration for today's outfit

My version

I'm not sure where I found this, but it's a picture I've saved in my 'inspiration' folder and it inspired the look for the day.

My skirt is shorter, but it took three months of looking for it.  I finally found it on Sunday at The Hub when Taryn and I went shopping and for lunch.  The T-shirt is by DH and was bought at Truworths around November last year.

My shoes were a Christmas gift from My Schatz and were bought at Contempo.  I'd seen them on a visit to Greenstone Mall last year when I'd bought a few items of holiday wear and was really surprised when I opened them on Christmas morning.  Must give My Schatz credit, he does a great job when he buys me clothes ... besides other things ;-)

I felt very much a 50's housewife ... think Mad Men.
 What do you think of this look on me? 


  1. You look assertive and sexy.

  2. Yes!! Success!!

    This is one of the best looks I've seen in a while. Everything works. The elements are perfect and their combination is superb. Great job!

    Coincidentally, I'm in the process of writing a guest-post on Fifties Fashion -- and this outfit is exactly the kind I want to celebrate. I love the fashion of that era and you rock it!

  3. You look divine! Love it.

    The skirt is just the right fullness and length. Have you read Trinny & Susannah's body bible? They say that your skirt should always end at the thinnest part of your legs - thereby showing them off. This look really really suits you. But i love stripes so that may just have something to do with it too!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love hearing others feelings and appreciate your time. Please be honest - BUT kind.

Have a fabulous day now and I'll be coming round to visit you as soon as I can.

Thanks again, Wendy
