No Words



Here is what I wore today:



The pants are vintage men’s golf pants (thrifted) and the top is vintage polyester (thrifted).  The yellow peep toes are Me Too (via Nordstrom) and the yellow bangle is from the Mississippi Street Fair in Northeast Portland.  And the earrings are Nikki Jacoby "Labyrinth" (via Crafty Wonderland):


Aside from an explanation of the pieces, I really have no words for this outfit.  But, I did have some random thoughts.  They went something like this:

"Is this outfit awesome?  It feels awesome.  But, it's Friday, so I may just be tired."

“My God but these pants are comfortable.  How is it that double knit is no longer a thing?”

“I still can’t believe these pants only cost a quarter.  Best thrifting purchase ever.”

“Heh, will you look at that.  The shape of the earrings totally go with the ‘Eastern’ shapes on this top; it’s almost like I planned it.  I wonder if anyone would believe I planned it.  Probably not.”

“This top is so ridiculous that it’s come back around to awesome.”

“Butterflies?  I don’t wear butterflies.  Thank goodness they're paired with some bad-ass orchids so I still look tough.”

“Wait.  Are those orchids? “

And, finally, “I wonder if this counts as pattern mixing?”


Happy Friday, Everyone!  Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. You are a pattern mixing fiend (yes, this outfit counts, and yes, that is a compliment)! I think they're camillias or peonies or something, but they are still totally badass.

  2. I LOVE that top. I would have lost my sh!zn!t if I had thrifted it. It almost looks like a rectangular scarf folded in half, add side seams + neck opening. I'll have to try to re-create it's awesomeness.

  3. At first, I thought that was the Tory Burch logo on your top. I was like, wow, where'd you get that?? Either way, it's still a really cute top. And of course I love the yellow shoes.

  4. When you look this good, who needs words?! I love it! Both the top and trousers fit you so well, great pattern mixing, and I reckon butterflies can be bad-ass too! I often wear clothes that are so ridiculous they come back round to awesome, so I will treasure this phrase and quote it next time someone gives me side-eye. Thanks!
    PS. Thanks too for the "Manufacturing" info. Why didn't I think of that? Too busy being potty-mouthed probably! xxxxx

  7. My random thoughts:

    There are those men's pants again! They sure are versatile.
    What a wonderful top. I never would have thought. (I didn't even see the butterflies.)
    She totally planned that tie-in between the earrings and the top. And the blue toenails that go with the outfit. (I know you're laughing at that one. You're welcome.)

  11. Yes I think to almost everything. Awesome. Pattern-mixing. Polyester. Butterflies.

    Oh, and WOW, just WOW, Gracey.

  14. Gracey, if I could look as good as you do wearing pants, I wouldn't mind being a boy. The top rocks, too.

  15. I am so jealous of your ability to wear men's pants. They look SO GOOD on you, then I try them and look like a stumpy little brickhouse. Tell the truth, you did a deal with the thrifting devil, didn't you?

  16. excuse me, but this outfit is just plain awesomesauce. Wait. did you already say that yourself? Well, it's true. WHY isn't double knit more popular? I ask myself that multiple times a day. And that handkerchief top? Splendiferous. Why aren't those a thing again? For realz.

  22. Totally fashion forward! I love how you've mixed up the floral with the mens pants ... so not something I'd wear, but you're carrying it off so well. Love the trousers.

  23. That top is pretty darn awesome, it looks like a scarf but is probably a lot more secure than wearing a real scarf! Really pretty really pretty!!
