And now it's Tuesday.
Following my weekend perusal of the September issues of some of the trendy fashion mags, here's my take on dark florals:The September Issue" (IMDB link) it's well worth it for a glimpse behind the scenes of making of the 2007 Vogue September issue).
This is the sheer floral blouse I thrifted a couple of weekends ago, here. I may have chortled to myself while removing the $5.00 price tag this morning. I do love the little black collar.

here with blood red and floral. That's not the most flattering butt shot ever, so please trust me that my rear view looked good!
It's outerwear season again, so if the mood strikes me, I'll take pictures of my coats. This is my gorgeous Danier Leather (made in Canada!) that I treated myself to last year, on half-price retail for $399. No, I didn't miss a decimal point; the regular price was $799.00.
|Also important: good walking shoes!|
here with my shiny pink and gold jacket in July (I need to wear that jacket again). These are strictly a spring/summer shoe for me, so away they will go this weekend.
Of course, I followed the floral motif in the blouse and shoes with my Flower O'Clock bracelet:
Blouse (no label, thrifted), skirt (Gianfranco Ferre via Giorgio Beverley Hills, vintage 80s, thrifted), shoes (Miz Mooz, consignment), belt (Plum), cuff/earrings (Le Chateau), ring (Oscar & Libby's).
those shoes! love, love them, as well as the new sheer blouse. The collar does give it a lovely 1940's feel. No way it's an XL?ReplyDelete
Wait - dark florals are in? YES! Sheila, I'm glad you keep me in touch with these things!ReplyDelete
So pretty! I love dark florals. I even love the sound of that term - dark florals. Like a beautiful woman with a wicked sense of humor.ReplyDelete
Those are my kinda florals. Great find!ReplyDelete
Love the blouse! I can never carry them off, but I do love a peterpan collar. That coat is a magnificent piece, well worth the indulgence. Coats are one of the few things I ever pay out money for.ReplyDelete
That blouse is lovely, I like the silhouette of loose tops and pencil skirts :) I think the addition of a belt makes a difference too - that's one thing I'm learning and trying to incorporate more into my own outfits, like you have here :)ReplyDelete
XL? Wackadoo is right. I agree with Val about dark florals - a woman with a dark side perhaps. I enjoyed the documentary. What surprised me is real people put together the magazine.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous top--making note to self I need a drk floral top!!ReplyDelete
Love the whole outfit in fact--and yes that skirt does wondreous things for you butt!
Such a pretty blouse! I love the collar on it! Dark florals are awesome.ReplyDelete
What a great blouse and it looks fabulous on you! That leather coat is to die for.ReplyDelete
That blouse looks lovely - I saw lots of floral sheer tops on my rounds today looking for something to wear for tomorrow. As always, I am drooling a little over your shoes and your coat!ReplyDelete
Thanks very much for being so encouraging, Sheila - I appreciate it. xxxx
Gorgeous blouse, and helllooo to your red leather coat! The inspiration for me buying a green leather jacket.ReplyDelete
I wish there were more conscious customers out there - like you.ReplyDelete
Picking Canada made items makes all the sense - if i tried to shop like that here my closet would be very reduced.
I have only ONE DRESS that i bought because it was made here and i hate to admit the fabric is awflul.
