Odette with Green and Grey

What a crazy day! I don't feel like I got anything done. 
But at least I looked good doing what I did do!

  • Sweater - Dalkeith, vintage 60s, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in February with plaid
  • Skirt - Bianca, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in July 2013 with leopard
  • Shoes - Esoteric Temptations Odette, Fluevog; purchased here a couple of weeks ago

I am hugely in love with this sweater. Such a great shape!

I'm shocked that I haven't worn this skirt in a year and a half. I think I might have been labeling it incorrectly, which messes up my searches. I'm sure I wore it last summer...but then again, I might not have.
Anyway, I like it, and I'm keeping it now.

The stuff:
There was much foot-waggling and "Look at my shooooooes!" today. Heh.

Teeth stuff:
I also pretended my necklace was teeth, as I often do.

  • Necklace - The Bay, several years ago
  • Earrings - local
  • Death Star ring - Stone Roses
  • Snake ring - homegrown vintage 1985ish; Royal BC Museum gift shop


I don't know why pictures that people take on phones won't post right side up on the blog. I know how to rotate them, I cropped them, resized them and saved them as upright. I have posted nearly 2,000 times and yet this elludes me. They refuse to post vertically.

Anyway, crank your head sideways. This is my friend Liz, and everything she's wearing was mine.
Liz works at a non-profit that provides riding therapy. Here, she is judging in the field.

And in her office.
Recognize the jacket? The shoes? The hat? The skirt is an old one that I barely remember! Thanks for giving my old stuff a good home, Liz!

  2. WOW! Odettes are fabulous on you, I love everything about them. (I was waiting and waiting!) Fierce necklace and great palette. Not only are you a snappy dresser, you're a sharp one too!

  3. I have no idea about the photo issue, but your friend looks stylish even if I did have to tilt my head, haha! :)

    For a good grey pencil skirt I'm sure you've worn it more recently than a year and a half ago. Shame you can't find it in your searches.
    How good is it being able to search back and see the last time you wore things? I do that a lot in my blog, it's such a useful resource! :)

  4. That is a great fitting grey pencil skirt … it's odd you have not worn it in so long.
    I like how the upper part of the outfit is so classic and the bottom has more character.
    Isn't it great that you can still see the items you have given away… ? even better if they are appreciated!
