Princess Dress with Dots

I have a short workweek this week - I'm taking Wednesday to Friday off to help L celebrate his birthday week, just a lovely "staycation." So I'm wearing a few of my favourite things. 
 Like this dress and these shoes...and that obi, and that flower, and that jacket...


  • Jacket - Comrags, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) in September 2016 over my fresh tattoo
  • Dress - Calvin Klein, consignment; last seen here in May 2016 with oodles of aqua (check out the cartoon bluebirds by Lorena!)
  • Shoes - Lola Ramona; last worn here in April with iridescent orange 

 I went covered up with the jacket all day. A little more professional.

And a little more rock & roll:
 Only when I have a hot flash.

Good golly, I love this yellow dress. I've had many, many yellow dresses and this is one of my favourites. It's my Disney princess dress!
 Bows on the heels! So awesome!

The stuff:
 Mostly round things, with some stripes. I walked to and from the other office today in these and they were just great. That's the perfect heel height for me.

Black and white bling:
 Bonus points for a bit of yellow in the obi. I am also pleased by the fluffiness of the flower pin.


  • Obi - Smoking Lily
  • Flower - Le Chateau? Roberta's Hats? I've forgotten...
  • Bangle - local
  • Earrings - Le Chateau


I could feel Vizzini's eyes on me as I was leaving this morning.
"I'm just waiting for you to leave so that the Man and I can sleep in."
I wish I could stay! One more day!

  5. You guys do birthdays up right! I look forward to your coverage here later. Happy Birthday, L!!

    I have a swishy, filmy, yellow Disney dress too - I love it dearly. Flouncing. And I love how you pumped it up with that humongous flower and other accessories. Your hair with the yellow is shocking in the absolutely best way!

  7. I think the shoes have to be my favourite piece here Sheila. I love the mix of spots and stripes and that little bow at the back is the cutest!

    You surely celebrate in style don't you? A birthday staycation - I need to keep that in mind for my next b'day.
