Gone Style: Good Wear Days (Week Five)

<span class=
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?

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.
<span class=
<span class=
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.

Style Blog of the Week:



Anonymous | 9:28 AM

You look great, but must know, are you losing weight??? Your mom is the bomb.

EazilyAmuzed~Kelley | 9:36 AM

Fab! especially loving the Slouchy Sweater, Harem(I think)pants and green polka dot scarf look. XOXO

Amanda | 9:37 AM

Yes!!! My David Bowie obsession has me obsessing over that jumpsuit! Your mom looks amazing (but did we expect anything less?) and I can't wait to participate again (feeling to lazy these last couple weeks)- TO THE CLOSET!

Amblus | 9:38 AM

Yay Marianne! That is great. And dang, that spangly bodysuit is VERY Bowie and I don't say that lightly. Fantastic.

Marianne | 9:40 AM

I WON?! Oh my goodness! And here I was, all ready to post this week's outfit!


Thank you so much, Rebecca! These posts are so fun and I look forward to them every week. xx

Liz | 9:40 AM

That gold lame jumpsuit is redonks. So much fun.

Here's my first look from the mini heat wave this week:


Glenda | 9:57 AM

you and your mom = too cute!

Alexia | 10:27 AM

Your mom is the cutest!

And I love the vintage jumpsuit, but tell me: where'd you wear it? Certainly not to pick up Archer from school?!

Sonja Streuber, PMP(R), SSBB | 10:30 AM

Love WWW's shirt--what a stylish woman. Big fan of hers!

Oh, and you, of course, too, especially that pretty grey dress.

findingmagnolia | 10:48 AM

Your mom is adorable. Tell her I'd like her to come over to my house. I mean, I am all the way in Kansas City, but...maybe she has other things she'd like to do in Kansas City?

I love all your outfits this week! The Anthro dress! The gold! THE SEQUINED PANTS!!! So fantastic.

I accidentally dressed to match Zinashi AGAIN, and this time it's even worse because I laid out the outfits last night and didn't even realize what I'd done until we were all dressed this morning. I might as well just start doing it on purpose and accept my matchy-matchy mother-daughter inclinations.


Lil Muse Lily | 11:40 AM

you are brave girl!!!! and only you could pull it off.

your mom is beautiful. like mother, like daughter.

Alex | 11:55 AM

You're mom is adorable! I love the sparkle pants. They rock! They remind of a pair I've been obsessing over at JCrew.

Anyway here's my look for the week:

Amblus | 12:23 PM

Dur, and here's my look for the week:


Anonymous | 1:02 PM

My daughter wants to play with your mom and her kids. She cannot stop talking about it! She also wants your jumpsuit (she says it is fancy). She is 2 1/2 and we live on the East coast but maybe one day her dreams of playing with your mom will come true.

kim {the non-mom blogger} | 2:19 PM

Congrats to Marianne!!!

I love the gold jumpsuit. I can't believe I just typed those words. It kind of scares me, but I still like.

Here's last week's ensembles, in which I declare my LOVE for leggings.


Stef | 3:58 PM

Your mom is so cute I can't stand it! I'll be back w/ outfit postings later.

Anonymous | 3:59 PM


Liz | 4:07 PM

LindaB | 5:43 PM

LOVE! You and your mommy are so incredibly gorgeous, it kills me. Thank you for posting the name / brand of lipstick - it's the very first thing I noticed in the pics and thought.."I MUST know what that color is and buy it right.now." Off to Sephora...

Anonymous | 6:41 PM

Althea | 7:30 PM

mommymae | 1:16 PM

while i love the gold lamé, i'd never wear it. you rock it, but it's not my style. is it itchy? i love your swing dress from anthro. and the stripe top get-up. well, i love all of it, but could see myself wearing those.

i just finished this dress:


it only took me 7 months to finish it. hopefully, the next one won't take me as long to make.

molly magill @ smmidge | 3:06 PM

super. fun. chic. and love checking out commenter-style too (now there's an idea). here is a go from long-time-fan-first-time-commenter: http://smmidge.blogspot.com/2010/11/smmidge-style-furniture-to-fashion.html

Amy | 4:45 PM

Back in college I had a pair of gold lamé pants in the same cut as those and I adored them. I wore them to class, wore them for cocktails, wore them with baggy sweaters at the cafe. They've gotten lost in my travel and my best friend and I sometimes lament the loss of the lamé. Thanks for the memories.

Katherine | 5:31 PM

Oh I really LOVE the Anthro jumper, super cute. And your Mom is fabulous! Great outfits as always.

Had to put my babes in this one this week, his Scandinavian wears were too good to pass up (if you count Hanna Anderson as Scandinavian:) I do...


little one:

Estelle Hayes | 5:53 PM

Millers Outpost. Wow, that brings back some memories. LOVE this post. You look amazing in every outfit. Especially love the Carolina Harrera 80s jacket.

P.S. I so hope you answer this question. I'm sort of dying to know if you recently saw Kathy Griffen live? Her recent special on Bravo pans to someone in the audience that looks so much like you. Anyway, just curious.

pearmama | 7:42 PM

Millers Outpost!! Get outta town!! That was my joint!

Jessica Peck | 5:08 AM

how about for next weeks giveaway, you offer up that anthro dress and orange hat! :)

Anonymous | 1:04 PM

That's alot of shiny! WWW looks bad ass!

lola + oliver | 4:44 PM

I absolutely LOVE the Julia Failey initial necklaces! Can that be a giveaway someday, perhaps? Pretty please?

Honestly, you always look fabulous Rebecca. I get the feeling that you could be wearing a burlap sack or plastic garbage bag and still look stunning!

Also - those sequin pants are INCREDIBLE and you rock them so well. I'm totally lusting after them!

Laura R. | 5:12 PM


Sarah | 1:18 AM

Sometimes you gotta spend your Saturday waiting in line, in the rain for some cheap French dishes.


judith | 4:31 AM

I've been following you for a long time now from the other side of the atlantic. never commented though, but now i am dying to know: how do you do your hair these days, major shine!! let us know!!!

Another outfit post from this past weekend http://beforethebabywakes.com/2010/11/worein-georgetown/

findingmagnolia | 2:03 PM

I'm taking Zinashi with me now to visit an elderly friend who has no living family, and today was our very first visit. I've been chronicling my outfits each week on my personal blog, and I'm really excited to have Zinashi in on the action now, so I've moved the feature to our Finding Magnolia blog as well. We'll have new outfits for you every single Tuesday. Here's the first installment of many:


Laura R. | 7:42 PM

outfit #5! this is what I wore for coffee in charlottesville w/ a friend


Katherine | 8:49 PM

Feeling inspired. Here is outfit #2:


Loving all your looks!!

Anonymous | 9:49 PM

I don't think this counts as an entry because it's not my day-to-day wear but it was fun to play dress up


Laura R. | 7:13 AM

11/25 look...going for the win!


Tasha | 7:30 AM

another one (taken last week but I forgot to post)!


Pearl | 8:25 AM

beautiful women!

k5brown | 5:06 PM

I'm digging the gold jumpsuit!


findingmagnolia | 3:47 PM

I've got another one for you, and it's my birthday style. I didn't note anything about the outfit in my post, so I'll just tell you that the fabulous skirt is from Boden, the tights are from Anthro, and everything else is from who-knows-where. I felt great on my birthday, but I think it had little to do with my outfit and more to do with a certain Ethiopian beauty that came home in time to celebrate with me.


Laura R. | 6:22 AM

still hoping to win ...
