Ash Wednesday

I don’t plan to fast, abstain from meat, or repent, but my Mardi Gras color palette is appropriately subdued today.

Shrug, Express (via swap). Floral tank, Mushka by Sienna Rose. Turtleneck, Mossimo. Peggings, Bongo. Shoes, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Bag, Liz Claiborne. Tassell, Epcot Morocco. Arrowhead pendants, thrifted.


I’m not sure about the addition of the green bag. The effect is a little jarring. But the green in the floral tank didn’t seem bright enough.


The floral tank is one of my February purchases. It was spendy for a TJ Maxx item: $20.


I’m out of holidays now and have no idea what to title tomorrow’s post. Any suggestions?

Whoops! That's before Good Friday, not after Ash Wednesday. That's an agnostic for you!

Teresa said...

In my department we call Thursday "The Day Before Friday" and greet each other in the morning with "Happy Day Before Friday!" :)

PS. Love the blog, you're so stylish!

The 14th was Chinese New Year. It is the year of the tiger. Maybe you could celebrate that.

I love the tank. I really had to take a second look because I thought it was sheer.

That tassel necklace arrangement is Killer.

I say call the post "It's not Friday but we're close, very close" or maybe "Thriftastic Thursday" and wear something cheap.

Leslie - the top is see-through. Not too much for casual wear with a nude bra, but definitely too sheer for work without a shirt beneath!

I love the tank top. I'm pretty bad at thinking up titles myself, but I bet there's some obscure holiday you could name tomorrow's post after.

I'm positively enamored of that shrug.

How about a Thifty Thursday? Where you wear as much of your outfit from swaps and thrift stores as possible.

Wow, that flowy tank is gorgeous and I like how the bright yellow tassle sort of balances the bright green purse :)
