Not Really New Shoes!

Pinstriped fitted blouse (Vero Moda, Plum), grey cropped pinstripe vest (aka the boob vest) (Kensie, Dots), mustard yellow cami (Inwear, Dots), grey wool skirt with kick-pleats (Lipton's, consignment), black sandals (JonesWear, Jones NY, consignment), gold and grey bead necklace (Anne Klein, Grandma J's), rhinestone stud earrings.
I was very pleased with this outfit - all the pieces went together very well. I love this shirt, but the buttons keep popping off; there are currently 2 buttons waiting to be sewn back on it. The skirt was a great find: 100% wool (it has the wool symbol on the tag) and I'm pretty sure it's vintage - the label looks very old. Eh, maybe 80s? It has a plastic zipper so I wouldn't put it any older than that. I did a search and found a couple of references - it's a Canadian brand.

I needed a "new" pair of shoes to continue my theme for the week. I totally forgot I owned these! They got stuffed on the shelf under my skirts and were all dusty. I got these about 7-8 years ago, wore 'em once then not again. I wasn't so into wearing dressier shoes for day back then - they were a going-out shoe. A close-up:
This is another one of my Grandma J's pieces. It's one I chose after she died, out of the pile of stuff from her jewelry box. I partly took it because it actually has the Anne Klein tag on it, and partly because, like the turquoise/copper earrings, it has wear marks from her wearing it. I like that. I don't think I have ever worn this - I wasn't very into the gold/grey mix.
Hee, you can see little reflections of me in the gold beads, taking the picture.
