Whenever I wear yellow, I feel happy. After yesterday's dark, I really wanted to be lighter inside as well as outside.
This is such a nice outfit: I love the shape of the cardigan and the little kick-pleat at the back of the skirt. The skirt is a green silk and wood tweed - so warm! And after a long spell of heels, time for some flats:
Well, flats for me - they're a kitten heel. I really love all the details in this outfit: the glitzy shoes (zebra, green piping, crown badge, oh my!), the mink vintage brooch, the leaf-themed charm bracelet, and the vintage cocktail ring.
The ring and the brooch are new, from a consignment store and an antique shop, respectively. When I was about 8, my grandmother gave me an old brooch of hers - it was a mink poodle with a cream velvet body and little black beady eyes. I loved it, it was so soft. But it went through the wash by accident and it was gone. I've never seen another mink brooch since.
This is my noisy bracelet - it chimes and rattles while I walk around the office.
Cardigan (no label, consignment), cami (Esprit), skirt (Precis Petite), shoes (Hale Bob), bracelet (can't remember), earrings (Avon), brooch (vintage, $7.50) and ring (Sarah Coventry, vintage, $20).

Oh I love this outfit, it's so bright and beautiful!!ReplyDelete
I agree that outfit is like a ray of sunshine and the colour suits you - I struggle with yellow!ReplyDelete
I love the silhouette you have created today - long and lean and fun!
Yet more great shoes! Love the crown detail. And I agree that wearing yellow is the perfect antidote to gloom of ALL sorts.ReplyDelete
So pretty. I love yellow. I have been trying to find a yellow cardi I can afford for a while now. Yours is lovely.ReplyDelete
Those shoes are fabulous!ReplyDelete
I COVET that mink brooch. The flower brooch against a yellow cardigan gives the outfit such a cheery, sunny look.ReplyDelete
Jane, I just love yellow, always have. But you look so good in pink and on me...vile!
Heh, Sal, I thought of you when I picked them out.
WWWYG: I found this cardi in a consignment shop for around $20.
Cat, isn't it divine? I have been looking for a hat (like your cloche) to wear it on.
I think I've said this before, but you look really good in soft yellow! It's one of my favorite colors for outfits and decorating--my bedroom is yellow and fern green. :)ReplyDelete
In the past, i bought all of my hats at the now defunct Marshal Fields. Macy's might have a good selection. I actually have quite the collection of hats. I need to start featuring them more on the blog.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Erica. Yeah, I love yellow for decorating too.ReplyDelete
Cat, we don't have Macy's in Canada. I checked the Bay (the Hudson's Bay Company, a large department store), but I think I'll need to go to my favourite specialty boutique for the right hat. I have quite a few hats - I always forget to wear them.
