30 for 30: Day 23 (12/09/10)

This outfit is a total reincarnate of the one I actually put together last night and planned on wearing today. Sometimes outfits work out and sometimes they don't. This one became something I really liked after I tweaked the original outfit some.
30 for 30: Day 23 (12/09/10)
Vintage Polka Dot Tie Neck Top: Solo's by Country Set, Thrifted: $0.99
Black Dress: Karen Kane, Thrifted
Tan Vest: Worthington, JCPenny, $5.97 (clearance)
Black Skinny Belt: ??
Ivory Knee Socks: Apt 9, Kohl's, $5 (sale)
Black Boots: Franco Fortini, Ebay
Glasses: SEE Eyewear

I initially planned on wearing the polka dot top with the black dress, over the knee socks and my black heeled oxfords. It was a no go. The oxfords looked terrible with the socks and the rest of the outfit was missing something. I switched to the boots, added the vest and the belt and I was good to go! And still made it to work on time! This is an amazing feat for me. :)

I think I have worn the heck out of these boots! I find myself going back to them day after day because they go with everything so well. Plus, it is freezing here in Michigan now so my legs appreciate a little coverage when I wear dresses and skirts - which I refuse to give up.
