Oh, Monday, you're so cruel. Rainy and gloomy this morning, so no stair picture.
But we make our own sunshine, right?here over my leather dress. I rolled up the sleeves this time to echo the shine of the top.
The skirt is fresh for this capsule, and is a long-time favourite of mine since I found it on consignment in October 2010, first worn here with reds and blacks (and I'm getting my can-can on!). It's by MNG (a branch of Mango) and was $29.99. It's a lovely rustle-y taffeta-like fabric and looks like ribbons of colour. I have always worn it with one of the colours in the ribbons: red, black, burgundy and orange. Not very creative! It was a stretch (a liberating one!) to pair it with olive.
I've also previously worn it thusly: Christmas 2011 was probably the last time, when I packed it as part of my travel capsule to Powell River; in July 2011 (2nd outfit, aw, Vizzini is so little!), in March 2011 (doing a swooshy skirt action shot!), in Feb 2011 (with orange for a change), and in November 2010 (with an ill-fitting red velvet blazer).
What? You're looking at the shoes again?
Wonders Ayers* by Fluevog - the ones that my Winesday girlfriends bought for me for my birthday in October (first swooned over here, but beware of Hallowe'en pictures, ha ha!). They were very comfortable all day - this is a wonderful heel! Despite the slightly pointed toe, there was no pinching. The double ankle straps were very soft and didn't rub at all.
*linking 'cause I love - and they're on sale and they come in lilac!!
The top is new-to-me, handmade (!!) vintage and made of silk shantung. Based on where the boobage shaping is on it, I'd say it's from the early 60s. I probably should have some vintage shape-wear on to get myself in the...er...right position, as it were. Hee! I bought this on sale for $12.99 back here when I was out doing some Christmas shopping last month.
|Isn't it a lovely top?|
The stuff, lined up on my closet shelf the night before, all ready for me to get dressed in the morning:
Jacket (RW & Co., consignment), top (vintage, thrifted), skirt (MNG by Mango, consignment), shoes (Wonders Ayers, Fluevogs), earrings (locally-made), bracelet (Plum), circle ring (Nine West), snake ring (vintage 80s), silver/red ring (Oscar & Libby's).
Bonus cat shot!
