Vintage Polyester - Blue and Green

Blue and green and aqua are such lush colours, especially when combined. Back to work today - only 310 emails to deal with. Yikes. 
And now home after picking up L from his latest tattoo (he's crashed on the couch), and I'm hungry! So let's get 'er going.

My first wear of this lovely handmade vintage 70s dress, purchased for $5.00 here this last weekend.
I will probably wear this with red accessories next time (belt, shoes, jewelry), but this time I just took that train to Matchy-Town.
This 70s polyester is...sweaty. Although good for an air-conditioned office.

The stuff:
The aqua shoes are not quite the same shade as the rich green in the tie and pattern and trim of the dress, but close enough. I last wore them here in May with long black leather.

Blue bling:
All the Wendy Brandes rings!

Dress (handmade, vintage 70s, thrifted), shoes (Prepare Guides, Fluevog), lapis lazuli and Fulvia Ring (Wendy Brandes), earrings (local).


  1. I could not wear polyester with long sleeves, but at least you're able to jazz up your office in that dress. The rich colors are divine, and I love the matchy shoes. But next time with red? Yes, please - I'd love to see that!

  2. Gorgeous dress, and combined with these shoes... just a dream! Like your Matchy town. :)

  3. The colours are fab, blue and green is a great combination. But polyester... You're a brave woman, outside of the office it must be hot...

  4. Love the colors and the vibe! Matchy town is cool, I like to visit there. 310 emails, ugh -- a slog for sure. xox

  5. The Seventies... now you're talking! My decade. I haven't (and probably never will) outgrow my fondness for the fashions of that era. They were imprinted on me at an impressionable age.

  6. I can't go past your rings. Divine! Your not so bad yourself ;-)

  7. You're wearing the new vintage 5.00 USD dress!
    It looks even better on, what a great find.

  8. so cute dress and so Fabulous shoes (as usual!), gorgeous!
    (i'm a huge fan of trains to Matchy Town too, mwahaha)
