Happy Friday and a Happy Memorial Day weekend to my US friends! A very Happy Birthday to dear Bella of the Citizen Rosebud, too!
I'm linking up to Bella's "Secondhand First" today - every single thing in my outfit is either thrifted, consignment, or, if new, made in Canada or the US. Cool, eh?
It's my second wear of this amazingly well-constructed and sewn top. The HR lady who Knows Quality immediately recognized it as a very high-end piece despite its lack of a label. I last wore it here in April with all taupe-y neutrals.
The skirt is actually a really dark denim, and is super high-waisted.

It was rainy this morning and generally gloomy most of the day, but it's now brightened up to blue sky and a light wind. I love spring in Victoria!
Sadly, this is the last wear ever for this blouse.
|I am so sad|
here (2nd outfit) in April with bright yellow.
Holy samolies, I love this belt. I want to wear it more. I must try it over a dress. Isn't it a great match for my cuff?
Bowler (Andre), coat (I.N. Studio, thrifted), blouse (no label, thrifted), skirt (Nicole Miller, vintage, consignment), shoes (Aldo, consignment), belt (BCBG Max Azria, consignment), cuff (vintage), Death Star ring (Stone Roses), mixed media ring (Poly, thrifted).
Oh no, such a shame that the top tore! :( It's good you know someone who can re-use the fabric though, so it doesn't go to waste :)ReplyDelete
Oh I am sad to see that rip in your blouse...I get so frustrated when my favourite garments are spent.ReplyDelete
In a way it shoud be exciting because that means we need to replace them :-) more shopping!
What a shame about that rip! It was gorgeous while it lasted. Your coat and hat have really bowled me over this time! Haha! Someone gave me a bowler hat once, sadly, it was too big. Yours looks great!ReplyDelete
I was all like, "GO, PERFECT TOP!" so the end was quite the shocker.ReplyDelete
I do love your coat and jacket. The top was fabulous while it lasted. The sleeves were lovely! I am envious of your ability to wear belts. I have no waist although sometimes can artificially create one with puffy clothes! ;-) Your belt is magnificent, and your ability to match all "the stuff" is mindblowing.ReplyDelete
Oh no! Sorry about the blouse. At least it'll go on to live as something else. Also LOVE your hat. I need more hats.ReplyDelete
Oh its so sad about that gorgeous top - it did look so elegant and well made, but like you say at least the fabric will be reused.ReplyDelete
