WIW: Art Walk

A town close to us has a monthly art walk which we love going to and having dinner after.  I wore my favorite faded and frayed Wit and Wisdom jeans, a rose brown wrap top, denim shirt dress worn as a duster, snakeskin booties and my grandmothers Art Nouveau beaded evening bag from the 20s.  It was a gorgeous night, warm with a cool breeze so we could eat outside. 

Analyzing this outfit: I like these jeans because with the darker elements in the outfit, there’s some light to connect to my white hair. After some experimentation, I’ve decided I prefer booties like these Chelsea boots that are slim to the ankle and don’t gap, not only do they elongate my legs, they help with controlling any swelling in my leg from mild lymphedema. The gold in the bag is not my metal, nor the orange color, but I think it’s far enough away from my face that it’s ok. Bronze flower earrings connect to bag and top.

    Lana, this is a beautiful outfit that matches the colours in your amazing bag. The denim duster is a perfect topper.

    An art walk…I love that.  

    And nice casual but put together outfit.  I like how the wrap tee gives you shape, but the gentle ruching keeps it from clinging.  And the color is fab!   And that bag, adds a little glamour and little boho.  Very nice

    This is an excellent example of how shoes and accessories make a fab outfit: boots, jewellery, bag, little peek of lace, and specs = ON POINT :)

    Hi Lana, nice to see you! This is a great outfit and you look terrific. Perfect for an art walk.

    Sweet! The bag is lovely and the dress-duster and earrings are cool. That bit of lace really does work well… or the outfit works well for that little bit of lace(!)

    The outfit is fabulous and perfect for the occasion. And your grandmother's bag -- it would be gorgeous as a random thrifted piece, but the added sentimental connection takes it to over the moon territory!

  • Lana replied 2 years ago

    Thank you Bijou, KK, Angie, Rachylou and Carol!  It is a very special bag. 

    Nice to see you too Janet!

    Love the idea of wearing denim shirt dress as a duster ❤️ Wonderful boots and accessories. Bag and earrings are beautiful art pieces!

    The bag makes the look for me, your color or not. Interesting point about the white fading on the jeans. Walk sounds splendid!

    The denim duster makes this outfit.  Cool bag and boots too.  YLF!

    Gorgeous bag -- how great you got an opportunity to use it. I tend to wear colours that aren't "mine" in accessories as well. Also, big yes on the booties.

    Lovely outfit. The bag is stellar.

    How did I miss the source of that bag the first time around? So cool! Love the way you continued the Art Deco theme with those earrings

  • RobinF replied 2 years ago

    Ooh I like this! The bag is beautiful and pulls it all together. Sounds like a fun evening.
