Random Outfit Post

Gee, haven't done one of these in a while!
Wore this a few Sundays ago, and then transitioned to something else for a meeting that night.
Here's the scoop:

pulling it all together...
Trench: Diane Von Furstenberg, via Goodwill, also seen here.
Silvery scarf: Kenya *giddy laughter*
Black satin skinny pants: BCBG, a few years old and a great buy. So versatile.
Black tank: William Rast for Target, via Goodwill. It's hard to see on here, but there's a black-on-black American flag on the front. Love!
Sequin cap-sleeve navy shrug: Nanette Lepore, but NOT for Target. The real thing, via Goodwill. *more giddy laughter*
Gunmetal satin heels: Nine West, via Goodwill
Rhinestone earrings: Boutique in Oregon
Bracelets: Forever 21 and Grandmother's crystals, restrung

Now, that evening we had a meeting-ish thingy to go to, but I loved how comfy the tank was, especially with the shimmery scarf.
So, here's what I did.

H&M gray skinnies, BCBG/Frank Azria cardi, pink Converse (via Goodwill).
All jewelry from Kenya. (Except Grams' silver ring.)
My hair was driving me nuts, so I teased the roots a bit and pulled it into a pony.

Now, if you really want to know a secret, this was the second time in just a couple of days that I wore these same outfits.
I had an event Friday night I wore the top outfit to, but with different shoes.
And after the event I pulled on the cardi and pink converse (albeit, still with the satin pants).
It worked, and I wasn't feeling very creative the following Sunday morning, and I had liked the outfit anyway...
so, I just wore it again!
There. Now you know.
(Oh, I'm so sneaky.)

An odd fact: This was the first of two high ponies I wore that same week. Both times I was asked if I was losing weight.
Thought: Do high ponies have a slimming effect on your face?

And, yes. I'm aware the bathroom mirror is dirty again. Oh, well.
