Today's outfit:I forgot to pick out earrings today. D'oh! Naked ears!
I love this dress, but I've only worn it a few times (here, for a party, here for a Dress Week and oh, hey, this last February here). I'll be wearing it one more time this week.
I'll be wearing the ruffled shirt a total of three times. I had to plan out my 5 outfits in advance. I took rough camera shots of each combo, but will put the accessories and shoes together when I pack my clothes up the night before.
The stuff (that's Inigo's paw in the upper left corner):
I thought I should go matchy with the shoes since I was doing an unusual colour combo with the green shirt and green jewelry. None of the greens quite match. I also liked the shiny gold chains and cuff with this.
I have never worn this necklace on the blog before:
In fact, I don't even know when I last wore it - maybe 20+ years ago? It's another one of those pieces that I "liberated" from Mom's closet.
I went to see my nieces, Zoe and Hannah (hi, guys!), play soccer tonight after work, so I wore this outfit to the field. Hee! It was a little much, but I did manage to kick the ball around with Hannah in these shoes.
Anyway, I showed Mom the necklace and she was shocked - she thought she'd lost it. Her dad (my Grandad, this guy) bought her the green necklace and her sister a blue one in Burnaby while he was over visiting a relative. She was in Grade 8, so this would be around 1958. How cool.
