style blogging... more closet challenge

i honestly cannot believe the closet challenge is nearing 100 - and more to come!!

day 82

vintage pieces...

 this vintage shirt is one of my all time favorites.  it has ladies in loud hats with mirrors on it, with blue and light orange stripes with a textured background.


paired with a large cocktail sapphire pendant from an estate sale, a purse Nana made, and slipper flats.


day 83

i think this top looks like ice cream sherbert. it's probably the loudest top i own.


it's a tube top, so normally i wear it in the summer, but here i've paired with a shrug and long pants so i'll stay warm. rocket dog flats, hoop earrings.

day 83

walking billboard.


this shirt is from the 2010 vision walk supporting Foundation Fighting Blindness. this is one of the charities dearest to my heart, due to my bunny's eye disease. we walked last year and were team captains for The Thundercats (ho!) and will do the same this year. i'll post more information about this as i have it, but we've got a lot to live up to - raised several thousand bucks! 
as for this shirt, the color always makes people notice it, but i really want to fix the fit on it a bit- it gives me no shape. this year, i may get a really big one and try to turn it into a dress... what do you think?

I LOVE your shirt from Day 82! It looks amazing on you and it is so pretty. Wonderful colors. That is so awesome that you are walking in the Foundation Fighting Blindness charity (cool team name!). I love charity walks/runs, I just have been so strapped for time lately!
