Oh, Monday, you are a cruel day. Why must you last so long?
Anyway, I wore dots! And I'm visible for Visible Monday! Go check out the fab participants at Patti's "Not Dead Yet Style"!February 2010. I paid $40.00 in trade-in of my own clothes at Leche's for it. It has no silk-screening on it, but it's handmade. I wonder how many of these they made? I'm guessing not many.
I've also worn it previously here (April 2010), here (August 2010), and here (April 2011, aw, my lovely Inigo). It's a bit tricky to style due to the colours/pattern, so I'm hoping that something more creative will happen during this month!
This is also the first capsule wear of these woven gold shoes; they were also "bought" here (in Jan 2010) via trade-in of my old clothes, for $32 (of which $30 was trade-in credit and $2.00 was what I paid out of pocket).
They are the infamous shoes that I mutilated with an Exacto blade on the heels to make them more comfortable. I'm happy to report that a year and a half later, they are nicely broken in - woven leather is nice and stretchy.
They've also been worn here (July 2011, 2nd outfit) and, here (April 2011, with the same dress!), but I know I've worn them much more. It's hard to search on my blog for Aldo as I have a lot of accessories from them.
The bracelet above is vintage, probably 1960s and is one of Mom's that I "liberated" from her jewelry box when I was a teenager. Heh.
