Blue Bookends

I promised my WW group last week that I would wear my new blue shoes tonight. So here we go.
A whole lot of 80s going on!

This is the 3rd wearing of this vintage 80s top, and every time I've done a slim-cut skirt on the bottom - the last time was here in June with many animal prints. I think a slim bottom helps balance the non-structured top (seriously, it's a big square).
This gorgeous wool - yes, I said wool - skirt is another vintage 80s one. I've had it since I bought it second-hand in 2009, and last wore it in the March 2012 capsule (recap here) where I wore it 3 times. Yikes, that's a long stretch between wearings.
I love the double-slit action - great for walking!

The stuff:
Blue shoe goodness! I last wore these less than a week ago, here, with my Spanish ladies dress.

Big bling:
I love this aluminum belt - it's perfect for sitting right at the waist.

Blouse (I. Magnin, thrifted, vintage 80s), skirt (Gianfranco Ferre via Giorgio Beverly Hills, thrifted, vintage 80s), shoes (Garden of Enjoyment Rita, Fluevog), belt (thrifted), earrings (Joyce's, vintage 80s), lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia ring (Wendy Brandes).


  1. The top and the shoes are such a good match!

  2. Those shoes go so well with that top! :) Hope your WW group was impressed with your heels :)

  3. Oh yes, those fabulous shoes certainly add some pzazz! Beautiful belt, and the slim skirt definitely works well with the square top - great colour! xxxx

  4. You're so right, a boxy top like that needs a slim bottom. Awesome shoes!

  5. Love the bookends - and the color - and the shoes! fabulous all around.

  6. Love the outfit!! The cobalt blue is stunning on you!!
    Altho with shoes as fabulous as they are you could've put on a trash bag and looked FANTASTIC!

  7. I think those shoes are just pure art.
    I am wondering if you have bottoms in that same color... i'd love to see you all in blue.

    1. Ooh, I have a wool pencil skirt in cobalt blue - I love the idea of an all-blue look. Thanks, Lorena!

  8. Oh, gorgeous. I love this colour on you. I have a top exactly this cut, though sadly not silky, and same as you, need to balace it with a slim bottom silhouette...
