Today's Outfit and a Quick Peek at the Purchases

Like I said earlier, crazy-ish day - hubby out of town for the night, kids home from school (teacher work day - not that I'm complaining, they sure do need them!), and puppy to take care of. My biggest difficulty in getting dressed this morning was that (1) it was chilly - or at least really windy, and I really, really wanted to wear a turtleneck sweater, but (2) I *finally* got my grubby hands on a Merona Pearl Cluster necklace yesterday. Huge thanks to AnneG who posted on 3-Penny Princess' blog that she had picked some up. Yay!! Can't wait to see the necklace on my new jewelry boards, but yeah...haven't gotten to the hanging yet.

Anyway...chilly weather, but wanted to wear the pearls. Plus I was still really feeling the orange from yesterday, so I pulled out an orange BR sweater from Fall 2007, (a bit more red than what I could find on Polyvore) but I thought the shawl collar would show off my necklace nicely, even if the only people who saw it were the kiddies and the puppy. And shoes are different, but this was the closest I could find to 2 1/2-year-old Payless flats!

Here are my quick peek at the purchases, hanging on the closet door, waiting for me to go through and make some final decisions:

And the Polyvore set (I wish the molten metallic shirt showed up better, because it's gorgeous):

The only thing I couldn't find on Polyvore was the gray bangle bracelet, which I totally love and want to wear everytime I put on my gray patent flats. Like the gray bubble necklace with Joyce and ShopaholicDiva have, the bracelet has that mix of gold and medium gray that I love.

What do you think?

I love all your great *finds*, which is your favorite??

I constantly get asked by J. Crew associates how I like my necklace, and my response is always, "I like it even better because I got it at Target for $11!!!!" My personal shopper had no idea Target carried a version, and she said she was going straight there after work that day!
Your outfit looks great, BTW!

Heidi, you look beautiful. I love the pearls and I am coveting the clothes you bought yesterday. Orange looks great on you also. I can't wait to see the pics IRL.

Ooh, you got the gateau skirt! Can't wait to see that on you. I really liked it when I tried it on a while back.

Looks like you got some great stuff! :)

Orange looks so pretty on you...maybe you will reconsider the darling v-neck?


By the way, I found a gold hoop!!! IN MY CAR!!! I will e-mail you tomorrow to get your address.

I loved your write-up of the event and I am going to put the link on my post about it!!!

GingerSnap - hmmm, tough to say - possibly the atelier jacket or the molten metallic shirt. I would have to go through my re-try-on to be sure. They are the early contenders.

KatyO - too funny! I was so excited to finally get one!

ShopDiva - thank you - you are a pearl expert to be sure!!

AppGal - I was really curious about the gateau, and had no idea whether it would work on not. I believe that my height definitely worked in my favor here. I will no doubt be trying to wear it soon.

Dina - NO WAY!!! I bet I accidentally yanked it off when I was putting my hair up (yeah...not the first time I've pulled that graceful move). Darling orange vneck is still under consideration, no worries. Will let you know. I know, I know, it's the only colorful thing on there - other than the blinding glare of the metallic shirt.

S&S - thank you! Looking forward to some fresh posting material...
