A gentlewoman

Not having internet at home for the last two days has proven two things for me:

First, I really am addicted to my nightly blog reading.
Two, I am really good at finding other ways to procrastinate.

Oh well, at least I'm honest about it.

Here's an outfit I put together last week for the first day back to school after the Christmas break. (Always a hard day, mind you).

My sister was weeding through her closet and lucky for me, I scored these lovely green thrifted Armani pants.  My mum brought them with her from NYC for me.  They fit just like a pair of men's slacks.

So I went with the menswear theme and paired the slacks with my blazer, my oxfords, and my new gold men's watch.

I wanted to get a close up of my newest necklace.  It's one I mentioned I'd like to make back in the summer after I went shopping in Cat Street.  I found this ornate picture hook in a store selling brass door knobs and hooks, etc.  I thought it would be perfect on a chain.  My sister took it back to Brooklyn Charm and helped me get it strung up.  I'm so happy with how it turned out.

Now, here's a proposition for you.  One of the ideas I've been cooking up for 2012 is the possibility of opening an online shop connected to my blog, which I was thinking I'd call You're a Norbyah.  In it, I might sell some clothes that I've found in the my usual haunts in and around the city and even a small collection of treasures that I find in various markets (like this picture hook).

I've not a clue how to go about setting it up, and I'm far too busy right now to start.  But, I'll do some research and I'm excited about getting it started.  Any ideas from you experienced sellers out there are welcome.

The big question is this...Would anyone buy my stuff?

Outfit details: Armani pants (thrifted from Housing Works in NYC via my sister), H&M blazer, Cotton On top, belt thrifted from Artists and Fleas, Brooklyn, Sam Edelman oxfords, picture hook necklace, Michael Kors watch (a gift from my wonderful sisters), earrings thrifted from Salvo (in Stanley before they closed down)
