Look out! It's Dress Week!
This is an "all inclusive" Dress Week this time around. If you'd like to participate, please drop me a link by the end of the week (so, by Saturday morning, m'kay?) or email me your ONE dress that you'd like to show off to the blogosphere!
Today, I have to be brief, as I need to bus back to town shortly to get picked up in our "Caro-van" to drive out to Book Club. Our lovely hostess Kathryn lives out in what I refer to as the boonies. Hee.
here (2nd outfit), layered underneath this linen-blend coral skirt. The dress is unlined and is a slinky polyester, so it doesn't add much bulk underneath a skirt, and presto! I get a blue top in my capsule. I'm so clever.
I've had the skirt since March 2011. I thrifted it for $5.00 - the brand is Rocket. I first wore it here in a not-so-great combination (that cardigan is strictly non-public now). Aw, scroll down for a great picture of our dear Inigo...I miss him.
I've only worn it two other times: here in May 2011 (with a jacket and shoes that I no longer own), and here almost exactly a year ago, when I was trying to avoid jury duty (it was cancelled!).
I quite liked the vivid blue with the coral, the red shoes, and the bright yellow bangle.
here. These always go over well in the office. I tried to tie all the colours together by wearing this vintage 80s Adrienne Vittadini silk scarf as a belt. I bought it here for $20.00.
My company did a global fitness walk today: half an hour out for a walk, all over the world. I'm the ambassador for my office, so I led a group of 55 people on a lovely jaunt through the city, followed by a BBQ in our back parking lot. I will admit that I did NOT wear the red suede platforms for this venture!
here. They were free! They're also non-capsule, as my transportation.
