Summery and Shiny

For Julia who asked, the temperatures are in the low 70s here (highs of 17 or so for those of you who use Celcius). So yeah, I'm still hauling out my sweaters and tweeds:
I got the shoes in a thrift shop this weekend for only $8! They still had the Winners price tag on them: $50.00. And to top it off, the next day I saw the same pair (different size) in my favourite consignment shop for $32! Score!

The purple tank peeking out is also new. It still had the tags on it - it was $15.

The stuff:
Oh! Shiny! Caw caw! Look at all those glorious sequins!

I do love the cool colours in the shoes: yellow, green and purple.

A close-up of the jewelry:
The necklace and earrings are cheapy-cheapy, but the bracelet is vintage (Mom's).

This is the last day of the Summer Black-Out, so I'll be black (or not).

Cardigan (no label, consignment), tank (Costa Blanca, consignment), skirt (Precis Petite), shoes (Enzo Angiolini, thrifted), necklace (Le Chateau), earrings (Aldo Accessories), bracelet (Trifari, vintage, Mom's).
