I love pink and green together - tossed on my granny cardi and a nude shoe, piled on the sparklies and I'm good to go.
I find this cardi a bit boxy, so I like to pin the back to give it more shape:
My awesome shoes, my vintage lace skirt, and a bunch of vintage jewelry. From the top: brooch from Grandma J, crystal necklace from my mother-in-law, bracelet from Mom.
Cardigan (Wendy B., consignment), sweater (Esprit, thrifted), skirt (Alfred Sung 80s vintage, consignment), shoes (Seychelles, consignment), brooch (Pastelli, 50s vintage, Grandma J), crystal necklace (50s vintage, Mother-in-law), bracelet (Coro, 70s vintage, Mom).
I'd probably kill for those shoes. No, seriously. I love Seychelles. they were once my secret weapon before Urban Outfitters started carrying them, but I still love them. Oft, I eyed those little darlings you have, but I never actually got them. Envy!ReplyDelete
I got a new Cashmere cardigan in Tesco for £12.50 last week. In the sale.ReplyDelete
I think you look very elegant - not Grannysih at all.
Such wellbehaved top part and a fantastic skirt! I love it. You look great, Nanna!ReplyDelete
How clever is THAT? Since dress clips haven't come back into style (yet), I'm totally stealing this idea!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous skirt! You look great.ReplyDelete
Due to severe pear-shapedness, I am always suffering from tops being too boxy on me....what a brilliant solution. Now I just need to find some big brooches!ReplyDelete
I swore off shopping for one year, in order to pay the tax man....but brooches clearly don't count.
Cashmere for 12.99? Insane!
I like the way the neutral shades of everything else really let the green lace dress shine. So pretty!ReplyDelete
Julia, I love that brand - it's not one I see around in store much, though. They are super comfy!ReplyDelete
Wow, that's amazing, Jane! Thank you so much. :)
Ha, Tanya, funny girl. Thank you!
Sal, I can't take credit, I've seen Kasmira do that with a pin.
Sheryln, please steal the idea! You can find lots of big brooches in thrift shops, but mine are all my grandmothers'. Good for you! that's a tough challenge.
Thanks, Kristen - that's a skirt, though, not a dress. :)
Dress, skirt, it still shows off your fabulous gams! :PReplyDelete
Ha, you're such a sweetie, Kristen. :)ReplyDelete
