Is It Black or Is It Blue Now?


~ you know,  ~






~ Wearing this reminds me of that quote. ~


I discovered the top and matching pants in the deep recesses of the archive, tried it on and it fit.  It's made out of a dark midnight navy faux suede fabric.  I cannot for the life of me remember making it, much less wearing it.  It's so, so, ultra plain, minimal even.  Because of how small it is, it must be over 30 years old.



~ it's an utter mystery ~


I dashed of the mesh damask lace under shirt to wear with it cuz it was just too darn odd without it.  I left the little toggle unbuttoned at the mandarin collar neckline to expose some lace.  And added a small antique brooch.   I didn't want to over do it either.

I'm sure if I wore it as it was you wouldn't have recognized me at all.

I'll be joining Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style and Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like when the time is right.  Come on by.

  1. Maybe you should give this girl a call. She looks pretty cool.

  2. looking fab, Pao, and yeah, the damask makes it more recognizably YOU. And you're a slim one, to be shopping from the back of the closet! xo

    1. Not even the back of the closet. Back of the archives (which is code for depths of the enclosed back porch!)

  3. This outfit fits you so well, I can't believe it may be over 30 years old. Love the deep blue, the damask is so beautiful!

    1. Thanks, Ellibelle. It was a shock all around. That I found it, that it fit, and that I had made something so plain and couldn't remember it at all.

  4. What a great find. I agree that without your stylish tweaks it wouldn't be the same. Love the Joan Didion quote--so true!

    1. I know, KimMalk, that Didion quote just struck me as right on!

  5. It is definitely a more minimalist outfit than I'm used to seeing you wear, but I like what you did with layering the lace undershirt. There's no way I could fit into anything I wore 30 years ago, so BRAVO!

    1. It really is weird, Shelley. Like I'm time traveling or something with my clothes.
