Yellow and Purple with Lemon-Lime Rhinestones

Well, Monday again. Enough said.
My first wearing of this new-to-me handmade vintage jacket, and likely the last.


  • Jacket - vintage 60s, handmade, thrifted; purchased here yesterday for $9.99
  • Dress - Jacob, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in April for a stroll to the grocery store
  • Shoes - Pearl Hart Bellevue, Fluevog; last seen here in June with pink

There's nothing really wrong with the jacket. It's lovely. But it muddies out from a distance (like in these pictures), and it wasn't special enough.
I'm happier to move it along, than to keep something I don't fully love in my closet.

The stuff:
I still love these shoes, although they were a little warm today.

Lemon-lime bling:
This is one of my favourite sets that my Grandma J gave me.


  • Brooch/earrings - vintage 60s, Grandma J's. 


Tomorrow is another day!

  1. I like your quick decision to ditch the jacket. I often buy things because it's a good deal and I know I should really like it, but sometimes feel like you do - muddied from a distance. It just takes me longer to get rid of the piece. Too many maybe's, what if's, failed combos... Sheesh.

  2. Good for you for being decisive. I wait too long then wonder why I'm "never" wearing a certain piece. You have great skills in picking what you love (I have seen you in action!). xox

  3. WOW that was quick !
    However I get it - you cannot hold on to something unless you look fab in it.

  4. Your Fluevog shoe collection is fantastic. Love your grandma's set as well. I have loads of this kind of jewellery, although not from my grandmother.
