The Yelawolf concert/nor’easter on Wednesday kicked my ass. I was knocked out with a bad cold for days. Fortunately, I was able to pull myself together to go to a screening of Silver Linings Playbook last night. Knowing that I had a Stacy Lomman-styled outfit to wear helped me get out of bed.
As I previously wrote, Stacy has been doing some wardrobe therapy for me: going through my closet and putting things together in new ways. Admittedly, neither of us had high hopes for my mini-collection of rainbow-y 1990s Todd Oldham skirts. But, lo and behold, Stacy found something to go with one I got on eBay a few years ago.
What Wendy Wore
Top: Versace (pre-2005)
Skirt: Vintage Todd Oldham (purchased on eBay)
Shoes: Prada (2010)
Necklace: My own Queen of Scots design
I’ve tried this skirt on many times with a standard black top, but I was never happy with the look. I pondered giving up and sending the skirt to a thrift store, but now I’m glad I didn’t. It took Stacy to point out that the “background” color of the skirt print was red, not black. Love the new look — and it was perfect for gorgeous blogger Patti’s Visible Monday post.
If you’re in the New York area and want to book Stacy for wardrobe therapy, contact Cross It Off Your List. She’s so worth it. We’re not even done with my closet and I already have 20 new outfits. If you’re not in the hood, holla at Stacy on Twitter and set up a Skype session.
