And now for something completely different

Top: Ann Taylor Loft, thrifted;
Pants: J. Crew, thrifted;
Heels: Etienne Aigner.
How I've worn the top before: here.

Thanks for all of your feedback on my last couple of posts. The Project was incredibly fun to do, but it couldn't have gone on the way it did without your interests and support, so thanks, guys.

So, what's new in my life ... I'm wearing pants today! It feels really weird to not type "Dress #X" in the title. It feels really weird to be wearing pants, too. I've missed them a little. I still cannot believe I got through 45 dresses. It makes me feel like a little overexposed, like you all know the cards in my deck after seeing most of the insides of my closet. Promise to still love me, even in pants and skirts and shorts?
About this outfit. Except for the shoes, everything is thrifted. These are the wool pants I was dying to wear during The Dress Project -- they look grey here, but they're actually more of a mint color in real life. I think they're going to get some good use, and they are in great condition considering that I thrifted them.
I made my first purchase today since the shopping ban -- it's the Target heels that I mentioned last week. It was really weird spending money on myself after not doing so for almost two months, but it felt pretty great. It sounds strange, but I think I want to continue the shopping ban for a little while longer. I'm so used to not spending money now that I feel like I don't know any other way. I'm sure this will get broken as time goes on, but I think the Project has made me want to be more frugal. 

signature1 by you.
