I Was a Teenaged Dress Week - Black, Grey and Purple

This is my fifth Dress Week since I started doing my blog! It follows:
Looks like I am right on schedule.
If I look vaguely annoyed it is because I had two incidents today that soured my mood. One, I dropped this bracelet IN THE TOILET after using it. Thank goodness yellow is mellow...and yes, I scrubbed thoroughly.

Two, I got a run in my tights:
Awwwwwww...these were such a good colour, and I loved the stripes down the legs. Now I have to go find more purple tights.

The stuff:
Rockin' silver booties! Oak leaf bracelet ($12 in a thrift store while on holiday), button, and silver earrings.

A close-up of the oak leaves and the button:
I love the 50s pulp novel look of the button (it was $2 at the Fair). The bracelet is not in great condition (and it opens too easily, grrrr), but hey, only $12.

Stay tuned! I Was a Teenaged Dress Week will continue!

Dress (Style & Co.), jacket (Mac & Jac), shoes (BCBGirls), bracelet (thrifted), earrings (don't recall), pin (handmade).

  2. Wonderful! I love dress weeks. I've had a couple myself.

    Oh, my gosh, that is too bad about the stocking and bracelet fiascos. Sounds like something I would do. Shame! I'm glad the bracelet at least recovered.
