Bad hair day – can the outfit make up for it?

IMG_2870I have to admit that today was NOT a great hair day.  I tried something new and, well, I’m not happy with how it came out.  However the outfit is something of an old standby; solid and dependable.

  • Black jeans (Coldwater Creek)
  • Black knit cardigan (Alfani, purchased at Macy’s a while ago)
  • Black, blue and white tank (purchased at Marshalls)
  • Black patent wedges (Gabor)
  • Blue and gold bangle bracelets (purchased at Marshalls)
  • Blue bag (Street Level, purchased at LittleBlackBag)
  • Gold cartouche (old, gift from my father)

The bag was a great deal – I picked it up for a little more than $20 as a sale item on Little Black Bag and I’m really pleased.  It’s not leather (they are only just starting to add leather bags at higher price points now) but it has a great texture and is a brilliant blue that works well with a lot of my summer stuff.

My biggest problem with this outfit is that you can’t see much of the pattern on the tank; it’s an art deco-esque pattern, and is gorgeous.  I wore it so often last summer that it’s starting to fade.  Still fits though, so until it falls apart it is going to stay in my regular rotation!  Here‘s a better picture of the design that I posted last summer.

I remain really pleased with the find of these bangles at Marshall’s.  In fact I may have to go back and get some more in other colors.  And my hair looks better in the closeup, so that’s always nice 🙂
