The Villains Win

After work, Rand and I rushed off to view another house. Now this wasn't just any house, it was a house in our price range, the size we want, in our old neighborhood. That may not sound like much, but in the last 6 months, it's the first house in our price range in that neighborhood. And I really miss our old neighborhood. Sadly, we found out it already has an option contract on it. In fact, it had one as soon as they put a sign in the front yard. Oh well, maybe another one will come up soon.

What I Wore While Getting Excited About My Old Neighborhood:

2010-05-17 combo

  • white skirt (Avenue)
  • black/white blouse (Newport News)
  • black knit top (Lane Bryant)
  • white belt (hand-me-down, Target)
  • black heels (Manolo Blahnik via Goodwill)
  • orange necklace & earrings (gift, Revente Resale)
What I Ate Before Dashing Off To Watch The Survivor Finale:

2010-05-17 food

  • breakfast: greek yogurt with apples and Fiber One
  • lunch: salad w/ 1 oz cheese, Progress Lite Soup, alternative bagel sandwich, orange
  • snack: SoyJoy, banana, string cheese

Shut up! You did not thrift a pair of Manolos! I need to visit your Goodwill!

Sheila said...

What a lovely house! It looks like Arts & Crafts era (we have a lot like it in my city).

Back on your points-counting - way to go, Tina!!

I should really send you that danged skirt...I look at it every day.

Kimberly said...

This is a great looking outfit! Love it!

K said...

You look awesome here! I love that white skirt. It was totally MADE for you!

Melissa said...

I LOVE the pop of orange in your black/white outfit! So subtle, pretty and classy.

Makes me want to go buy an orange necklace. :)

Sarah said...

I think this is one of my favorite outfits!! So classic and beautiful!!

Sorry about the house!

Love the pops of orange with the classic black and white. Very chic!

Tina said...

Kathryn - shut up! I totally did! LOL. It was the best find ever at a thrift store, I swear. I probably had a greedy gremlin look on my face as I walked around Goodwill with two pairs of Manolos in my hands. My precious!

Sheila - I love Craftsman houses. We currently live in one and they're my fave style right now. re: the skirt - I seem to be getting fatter nto thinner, so maybe you should consign it? I feel like such a loser that you offered me this lovely reward and I can't even get a little ahead. But I'm trying again, so that is good.

Kimberly - thanks!

K - thanks. I can tell that this skirt is going to be a fave of mine this summer.

Melissa - I say go for it! Jewelry is an easy area to get adventuresome with color.

Sarah - thanks!

-B. - thanks! I felt really lucky to find the Manolos.

Brooke - thanks! I felt very classy all day long.
