Thrifted Treasure: Vintage Tangerine Skirt & Gold Striped Shirt

Yesterday, I went to catch a free movie screening but I arrived too late for a seat. Free movies are popular! I did receive a raincheck to come back next week for another screening. I ended up going next door to Niu for sushi, martinis, and an amazing dessert. Well everything was delicious but the Pear martinis and salted caramel cheesecake were extra special YUMMMM!!

My shirt and skirt are thrifted. I bought the shirt because of the gold stripes. It a bit boxy and I had dreams of taking in the sides but....yeah. Throw it in the "one day" pile.

The skirt is an amazingly gorgeous shade of orange. It's wool. It's vintage with the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union label. It pulls on and fits very well. This is one of my favorite pieces already.

Denim shirt - Zara Woman (I bought this years ago and I'm pretty sure I didn't get it at Zara, weird.)
White/gold striped shirt - Coldwater Creek (thrifted)
Wide leather belt w gold ribbon - Calvin Klein
Vintage tangerine skirt - unknown (thrifted)
Grey tights - Hue
Oxfords - Kenneth Cole Tribeca
My last in theater movie was The Help. What was the last movie you saw?
Have any orange in your closet?

I loved SATC 2. The fashion, the colors, the sisterhood, the fantasy..

Looking good! That salted caramel cheesecake sounds AMAZING! I think my last theater film was The Help too. Did you see Toure's recent commentary on it? I found it very interesting: http://ideas.time.com/2012/02/02/is-the-help-the-most-loathsome-movie-in-america/

Last movie was Mission Impossible. It was too loud for my liking. I am a fan of orange. I even wore it to prom. LOL

I just cleared out some room in my closet and dresser. You make me want to go thrifting for clothes! I usually go for the vintage pyrex :D.

The last movie I saw was 10 years ago. I can't even remember. Most likely hubby and I were making out, lol 0:-).

Ooh, pear martinis! That sounds good! That skirt fits nicely, I like the orange on you.

Interesting. He is by far way deeper than me. I watched the movie for entertainment purposes and didn't look at it as more than a story. A fictitious story.

Mama Violet said...

Thank you! Following back.

Mama Violet said...

Heyyy! #teamorange

I wanted to see MI. All the hype about it being best of the series.

Mama Violet said...

Wowzer 10 yrs?

Check out the clothes. There's treasure. I casually glance in housewares looking for ebayables. :)

Mama Violet said...

Thanks, Vicky. The pear martini tasted like a jolly rancher. I must recreate it.

Mama Violet said...

#teamtangerine yay!

Following you all over the place.....

I love your orange skirt! And vintage to boot - lucky girl. I sewed myself and orange skirt last year but that's the only orange I have in my wardrobe.
