Hello there. How are you. Me? I'm tired. Verrrrrry tired. But I'm also very EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE this week's Minnetonka boot winner c/o Langstons and talk next week's fashion prize! (Hint: it's sparkly!)
So! Without further noise, congratulations to random.org chosen Good Wear Days commenter #1 Marianne! (which has NEVER happened EVER and kind of stunned me when it came up. I mean... when does #1 come up? Today it did, folks. Today it did!) who rocked the HELL out of this sassy little number and will be handsomely rewarded with a pair of 'tonks for running wild in fields of awesome. Go, lady! And thank you, as always, to everyone who participated these past few days! Loved your looks!
This week's Good Wears involved sequins and gold lamé. Also, lamé is the opposite of lame. Am I right? Anyway. Fancy a messy bun and some buttons?
dress: Anthropologie sale rack circa 2006
(It wasn't in my size but I bought it anyway and had it altered)
turtleneck/blouse: Anthropologie (I know, I know. I like Anthropologie)
tights: no clue
(which I'll be giving away as soon as they have my beige + black version in stock. Stay tuned!)
truth: this is my favorite outfit right now and I don't care who knows it.
jumpsuit: vintage wardrobe piece via sidewalk sale
necklace: gift from my mom
shoes: Gucci (purchased from consignment shop)
red lipstick: "delilah" from Stila

In Vegas I decided to channel my inner Alice in Wonderland.
(If Alice in Wonderland wandered into a discotech on the moon.)

Annnnnd back to a more casual day look:

necklaces = kid's initial necklace by Julia Failey & "Marine Layer" necklace by Moonshined Designs which is (dunt dunt duuuuuunt!) this week's giveaway!
This necklace (more pics below and here) is not only gorgeous but also happens to have superpowers. Behold the following, taken from "Marine Layer" description:
So. You see? This necklace is more than a "thing" - it has spiritual significance and healing, guiding powers for those both lost and found (oh but aren't we all!). It's a lucky charm of sorts and one that pairs beautifully with any and all ensembles.
For this week's "Good Wear Days" you have TWO weeks to participate (going to be skipping next week's Gone Style post in lieu of Thanksgiving) which means winner to be announced December 2nd, instead of November 25th. This ALSO means you have two weeks (fourteen total looks) to feature/link in the comments below.
In the meantime, a great big hug and thank you to Cate at Moonshined for your beautiful jewelry and generosity. (Browse more from Moonshined designs, here and/or become a fan on facebook.)
And another several dozen hugs to all of you who have participated these last five weeks and also for those that have not. I look very much forward to scoping your next batch of wears, specifically your festive holiday ensembs.
P.S. WWW came to visit last week. This is what she wore.
blouse: gift (from me)
jeans: Ann Taylor Loft
boots: from Millers Outpost 20 years ago.
Total GILF, this one.
Speaking of which...
