Red Poncho

Poncho, Newport News. Dress, vintage, thrifted, and shortened. Tights, Merona. Lace-up pumps, Isaac Mizrahi for Target.

(I think these are the earliest picture I’ve ever taken for this blog. They were snapped at 5:45 a.m. Someone put me out of my misery!)

This is poncho number two. I bought it to wear in the office when I got cold, but I never used it there, preferring a wrap to the poncho. I finally brought it home after two sad years of hanging in my cube. I’m hoping to incorporate it into my wardrobe, both work and casual.

Wow, that's awfully early to be up, much less not look like you crawled out of bed! My hat's off to you!

I love the red poncho - very dramatic! Also love the tights! I need some of those.

Well done, it's too beautiful to keep it hidden!

When I was a wee little lass, my favorite article of clothing was a purple and pink poncho.
I want a red one now, but really any color will do.

I like this outfit! Normally I'm not a fan of red/white/black, but you make it work! (As usual ;-)).

It's a nice poncho, but somehow this outfit just says "visiting nurse" to me.
