And here we are on the last day of July! Although this yellow dress wasn't part of my first outfit of July, it was the focus of the first outfit I wore to work this month (here).here) is not part of the capsule - I've never worn it on its own, only underneath other skirts and dresses. I've had it for about 3 years. It has no label, and was $24? from My Sisters's Closet.
I last wore this dress here, the day the stained glass shoes disintegrated on my feet - also the day that my new flat red Fluevogs arrived by mail.
I'm wearing my black stomacher (last seen here) over the dress, with a skinny yellow belt over that. One of Megan's buttonflowers is anchoring the long end of the belt in place. How handy!

That's my black and white scarf that I thrifted here for $6.00.
Dress (Calvin Klein), stomacher (InWear), shoes (Jones New York, consignment), scarf (thrifted, Karin), earrings (Plum), rings (Club Monaco).
And how much of a coincidence is it that the last time I wore this yellow dress, a pair of Fluevogs arrived in the mail? Check it out - I ordered these fabulous boots online and they arrived today!
Prepare Volunteers*, in grey wool. Yes, WOOL, thick felted wool. They are fully lined in leather, and yes, they're the same Fluevog family as my most awesomely awesome turquoise Guides (seen here, this past weekend, 2nd outfit). I don't have any grey boots, and when I saw that these were marked down to $199, I jumped at them. I love getting the height from the platform without it actually being higher than a 1.5" heel.
They also have them on sale in a lovely orangey-caramel colour (but the black is still full price). I adore the slouchy ankles on them and they are SO comfortable.
I can't wait to put these into a fall/winter capsule! Eee!
*I link because I love - I got a couple of free buttons included in the box with the boots, but I don't receive any discounts or freebies for linking to Fluevog.
FYI, this month's recap post will be delayed until sometime this weekend. They take a long time to write.
