A bunch of us are going to the gala opening tomorrow night of the Victoria Film Festival - it's a movie followed by 3 after-parties, all 60s-themed. Y'all know I love a good theme - I did have a blast with my 70s-themed birthday party last year! Anyway, the themes are Andy Warhol's Factory, the Be-In and "Breakfast at Tiffany's".here), and I would love to put a fun outfit together.
I enjoyed today's outfit - I liked all the reds/oranges and got a bunch of compliments on the brightness of it (the above picture is pretty accurate). Only 2 of the reds actually match: the shoes and the red of the blouse.
here a couple of weeks ago in January with yesterday's blouse.
here with my burgundy wool sweater dress.
here in November 2013 with crazy tights.
Dress (The Limited, thrifted), blouse (Liz Claiborne), shoes (Hilary Radley, thrifted), belt (vintage 60s, Mom's), spinner ring (Twang & Pearl), silver spinner ring (consignment), gold earrings (gift from L).
Check back on Sunday or Monday for tomorrow's outfit (hint: leather and leopard), the VFF gala outfit (no hints! Which theme do you think I'll do?), and my Saturday brunch/thrift shopping outfit and haul. It's a long weekend here in BC (Family Day), so have a good one if you're off. If not, sorry, sucks to be you, hee hee.
I looove these raavishing reds. Really. So, leopard and leather I'm doubtful you'll do a Breakfasts at Tiffany's. I thinking Be-In. No matter - you'll be smashing in whatever you choose. I loved the vintage retrospective link. That vest, swoonable. Nine bucks at VV? Clearly that was a few years ago; they'd probably charge $30 for it today. But then again, we've all appreciated in value since then. No need to tell you to have fun...!ReplyDelete
You look fabulous in red. Ready for a red carpet entrance....I vote leopard.ReplyDelete
Such a stunning monochrome outfit! :)ReplyDelete
Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the movie and parties! :)
You definitely captured the '60s mod spirit. Great look. And I admire how you find so many cool events to attend.ReplyDelete
i really like the blouse!! Have a great weekend, Shelia!ReplyDelete
I love all the red. Ooooh the gala sounds fun - I'm guessing you will do the Warhol theme. Can't wait to see photos!ReplyDelete
Love that dress, and the festival of reds! Have a great weekend, Sheila! xxxReplyDelete
Thought I'd check in and get perked up by your amazing style. You never let me down. I love all these reds together, and those are killah shoes, girl!ReplyDelete
I love reds and oranges, you look super 60's fabaroo!ReplyDelete
I look forward to seeing what you frock up in for this gala...what FUN!
You are looking rather Mod-tastic!! I love all of the reds! I can't wait to see your gala outfits!!ReplyDelete
This is a gorgeous outfit, and of course in the BEST colour! I love the shape of the dress, very mod. The party themes sound like so much fun - I would have loved to been able to go just to be able to put together an outfit. I've dressed as both Edie Sedgwick and Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffanys on Halloween, so I could do either the Warhol Factory or Breakfast At Tiffanys, no problem! Looking forward to seeing what you decided to wear.ReplyDelete
Gosh you make me thing how much we suck, we have no themed nothing ! Can you imagine a 60's themed party… oh lala! you lucky gal. I like what you are wearing, the colours are deep and they remind me of the Spy who Shagged me.ReplyDelete
