For dinner with friends on Friday, I wore homegrown vintage. I don’t think I’ve ever taken a photo of this skirt until now. Most of the clothing in this picture predates the blog, which I started in 2007. The dates below are my best guesses as to when I purchased everything.

What Wendy Wore
Sweater: MAG (2005/2006)
Skirt: Moschino (2005/2006)
Over-the-Knee Boots: Manolo Blahnik (previous guess: 2003)
Watch: Hermes (2000-ish)
Purse: Sonia Rykiel (2009)
Jewelry: All my own designs

The newest item in this photo is not the purse, but my watch band. When I got the watch’s battery changed this summer, I considered replacing the original band, which was looking pretty tattered. Then I became convinced there was a lot more wear left in it. Well, there was only a little wear left in it, because it broke this month. It conveniently did so in Las Vegas, where there was only a five-minute walk to the store to get a new one. My wrist feels all fancy now. What’s not fancy is that wall in back of me in this picture. That bitch needs some Botox.

    I love that skirt. Maybe it is time to give someone else a chance with it. I bet you would run an amazing online “garage” sale.

    You are a great inspiration for buying what you love + keeping it forever. I think the only thing I have from the early 00s are my Docs.

    Your outfit photos are proof that it always pays to spend money on quality pieces if you can. They definitely stand the test of time. I love your outfit here–simple, clean, totally chic.

    Vintage rules! And the fabulous boots are timeless.

  16. Susan Tiner says:

    I love the whole outfit, especially the skirt. It would be cool if you had an online garage sale of things you no longer want but it seems like you get such great stuff it lasts forever.

    I’ve given that wall a shot of Botox more than once!

    You look great in a full-ish skirt. I’ve never seen you in a look like this before. It’s really great!

    That wall needs some botox – LOL!
    I love your what wendy wore posts – and once again you don’t disappoint. Those boots are killer.

    Loving that the red lip and bright shirt together, yay for quality pieces you keep around until they age like a fine wine. (Maybe I need a drink, because that’s the first thing that pops to mind when thinking of vintage lately…)

  22. Lara says:

    This is the most perfect Fall outfit! I have such a hard time pulling off red but you do it so well!

  23. Sheila says:

    Fab outfit, Wendy! Dump those black sweaters and wear more of your “good stuff”! What are you saving them for? Special clothes every day, I say!

  24. Sheila says:

    And I meant to say “black t-shirts” not “sweaters”.

  25. stacy says:

    You look great! Petite and sweet!

  26. Keely says:

    Gorgeous! You always look fetching in red.

  27. Great outfit, red is definitely your colour
