Day 5 Time to Wash Those Clothes


Well today's outfit kind of came out by accident. You see, when I picked my 30 for 30 pieces about 1/3 of them were in the dirty laundry. So here's my excuse...I'm sort of lazy. I postponed the laundry duties for over a week due to not remembering to buy laundry detergent for 10 days in a row. So, this dress and blazer were about the only clean items I had left until tomorrow's laundry day. I'm glad it worked out though. Nothing is worse then being completely discombobulated with a closet full of 2 items. So I was left with this dress and this blazer and came up with a nice little outfit with my hints of brown. I don't know about you, but I think navy and brown just seem to go together so nicely.


Oh and you all will be so proud of me! I took a trip with my hubby to the thrift store and didn't buy a lick of clothing. I was tempted, but I resisted the urge. So instead I lived vicariously through my trooper of a husband. He found a great Marc Echo shirt and a nice zip-up sweater and both items actually fit him perfectly. He usually has little to no luck at thrifting so I was jumping for joy for him. Then I made my way through the homewares section and was in Kitchy Christmas Heaven!! So many vintage/antique Christmas goodies just calling my name. Everything from lead tinsel to vintage Santa Clause figurines. If I didn't have my wits about me I would've bought all the stock, but instead I walked away with the tinsel, some vintage ornaments, and a couple of dishes for my Thanksgiving dinner. All in all a good Saturday.

  1. Lead tinsel?
    Good for you for resisting the thrifting temptation. I had to hit the Goodwill today for books and was tempted by the Target goodies they just got in. I don't know if it's like this everywhere, but the Goodwills around here get the stuff that didn't sell on clearance at Target. Sometimes its really good stuff, too.
    You lucked out by not doing the laundry. This looks great!

  2. Yay for not doing laundry! You look amazing, i love the outfit! XOXO,

  3. It's always amazing to me how fabulous thrifted outfits look and show TONS of creativity! This is beautiful and looks wonderful on you! ~Serene

  4. I'm glad you made it to the thrift store and found some cool holiday goodies! I can't believe it's almost that time again :) Very cute outfit, as well!


  5. YOU ARE SO CUTE! the blue/brown and belted dress really really work for me.

    and i feel you on laziness. believe me, it takes a lot to bring ourselves to get up and dress up. and laundry's a whole-nother issue haha.

    hope you're having a good weekend!

  6. Gosh for being the only two items left you sure lucked out. They look great together.

  7. proud of you, this outfit is very nice I love the brown and the blue togehter very pretty.

  8. Brown and Navy work so well together! You are indeed lucky your last 2 clean items went so well together. I'm enjoying your 30by30 challenge. I'm hoping to get my act together and join in on the next one, perhaps by springtime. Right now I don't think I could handle it.

    Thank you for your kind words. Like you I am so over What NOT To Wear, for some of the reasons you cited. I'm not into looking like everyone else, and sorry Stacy and loud woman, NOT everyone looks good in pointy shoes. AND being rude because you don't personally like an outfit doesn't do anyone any good. As you can tell, I'm a big fan of eccentric dressers! xo. -Bella Q

  9. This is definitely a happy accident :) I love that navy blazer so much! These photos are wonderful!
