Off to see the wizard...

Well, as the title suggests, this is the outfit I wore to see Oz the Great and Powerful last night. I'm going to try to write about it for my movie blog, later, because I forgot to do yesterday's post but we shall see if that happens! Basically I enjoyed it a whole lot but it wasn't wonderful. The costumes were definitely gorgeous, though! And my own green-themed outfit seemed appropriate for the film.

I noted on Instagram that it looked like I was accidentally channelling Faye Dunaway as Bonnie Parker (albeit in darker tones) as well. This skirt, despite being itchy, is great. It's got green flecks throughout the wool blend and I love the pleated detailing at the front. It's been in my wardrobe since I bought it as I just wasn't sure what to wear it with. It's turns out that this blouse, which has also been hanging in my wardrobe yet to be worn, was the perfect match!

And these shoes, also never worn by me before, finished it off nicely. I love these shoes but I think this skirt is the only thing I own that they actually go with - which is better than not going with anything at all!

Oh, and I keep forgetting about Google Reader ending this year - along the side of my blog somewhere you should be able to subscribe via Bloglovin' or something else. I'm not entirely certain how these things work which I'm sure makes me a bad blogger in some way. Oops.

  1. AHH that blouse is even cuter than your instagram depicted!!!

  2. Wonderful outfit - the darker hues work so harmoniously well together. Those shoes are especially fantastic. I bet they'd work splendidly with a pair of wide legged (totally Marlene Dietrich-esque) trousers, too.

  3. I love that blouse! The colour is gorgeous but the shape of it, especially the collar, is just perfect.

  4. You look great! Love the shoes and they would work great with some trousers.

  10. Skirt! I love it! I have a pattern for a similiar one, Im yet to find the right fabric for it though. xx

  11. Gosh I wish we lived close by, I would loooove to dress up and go to the movies with you! This outfit is so perfect! I haven't seen the movie yet but it was spoiled for me by someone, which I'm kind of annoyed about, so I guess I'll wait until it comes out on DVD.

    1. Oh, I wish we did, too! That would be lovely. :D Oh, phooey to them. That's so annoying! I hate when people do that. Hope you enjoy it when you get to see it, though.
