Blue and Morange-day

All right! It's late - I just got home from getting my hair cut (yes, faithful readers, I misspoke and thought I was getting it cut yesterday, but no!).
It doesn't look like that. Much more buzz-buzz.

I loved the pops of orange in my outfit today: the shoes, the belt and the lipstick (MAC Morange).
I was awakened by the sound of pounding rain - thank goodness, as the province of BC has been plagued by forest fires over the summer due to the extreme heat and dryness we've been having. I hope this will alleviate some of that. Anyway, the outfit I'd planned was too summery, and this one had been waiting in the wings for a week or so, so out it came today.
It's a dress! A lovely cobalt blue handmade vintage 70s dress, thrifted for all of $5.00. Gotta like that. I first wore it here in June with predictable aqua.

The stuff:
I heart these shoes so much! I last wore them here with my crazyass ruffled blouse (hmmm...that needs to be worn again!) in June.

The stuff:
After I took my pictures, I realized I'd forgotten to put my earrings on. And I forgot my Wendy Brandes rings! They would have been perfect. *facepalm*

Dress (vintage 70s, handmade, thrifted), belt (vintage 80s, thrifted), shoes (Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog), earrings (white gold, local).


  1. I do the forget-the-jewelry-till-after-the-pictures too! Love this sassy color combination, and you look fab. xox

  2. Wow, what a fun look this is! I absolutely love the pops of orange!

  3. Such a cool dress, and the orange accessories work brilliantly. xxx

  4. I love that word misspoke!
    I'm glad you could pull out that little number on standby. Having the billed star go out of the commission is sometimes the only way those backups get any recognition at all. Yeah, this rain is Refreshing! Love it. In a couple of months I'm sure I'll misremember having written that. hee.

  5. Now I'm all confused! Is THIS the new haircut? It still doesn't look different to me. But it looks great, so that's OK!
    Funny forgetting jewellery after all this time blogging. I almost forget to do my hair, I'm so focused on the tiny window of time I have to take photos. And forget about makeup!XO JJ

    1. No, the post I put up a couple of hours ago is the new haircut. I'm usually better about planning my accessories, but I'm really not a morning person.

  6. I LOVE the orange accessories. I'm on an orange kick. A life long orange kick.

  7. Rain sure beats a loud sound, I was woken up at 5:30AM by a car crash :/
    And I really like the shape of those heels, blue and bright yellow/orange looks so good.
