I am usually pretty fast at banging out posts - I have 30 minutes before I need to leave for Book Club, so here we go.
- Dress - thrifted, handmade, vintage 80s; purchased here last Friday
- Shoes - Versace, vintage 80s, vintage fair; last seen here in May, while I was a pirate
The bottom button popped off the dress early in the morning, so I safety-pinned it back on. It popped off again (and broke the safety pin!) in the afternoon. Good thing I have safety pins in my desk.
Other than that, this was an awesome dress to wear! I love the rich pattern, the deep violet and the cut. Keeper!
A rare shot of the Sheila in her natural environment.

I had my walkin' shoes on because I trekked 4 blocks to our other office for their potluck lunch. Yay for ice cream cake!

I'm going to be lounging about, drinking wine, eating appies, and meeting Sarah's brand-new son, Charlie. I think every child needs a passel of mad aunties.
- Dress - Kensie; last seen here on a casual Sunday in September
- Boots - Ash; last worn here (3rd outfit) a couple of weekends ago, with sequins
This was my outwear today with both outfits.
Boots and belt.
[And it's time to go.]
Wooosh! Who was that masked...uh...dressed woman?!ReplyDelete
That purple really suits you, no wonder you have purple glasses.
Such a change of style for the evening. Love your snuggly furry polar bear, and those blinged out boots! The tights are pretty groovy too! xo JJ
Sheila, I am soooo far behind - I'm sorry! I've missed sequins and purple, pink silk and a naughty puss... The 80s frock is a beauty, and yes, all kids need eccentric adults in their lives! xxxReplyDelete
Ooohh, purple! And I'm sure you're efficient at making posts or you couldn't produce so many of them. I admire that industry.ReplyDelete
Love the purple dress, shame about the button! hopefully you can repair it and it stays on - having a little stash of safety pins is really helpful for wardrobe emergencies! :)ReplyDelete
I'm out of words for how much I love the purple dress - the colour, the shape, everything. A 10 out of 10!ReplyDelete
Yep, every kid needs a crazy aunt or two. Especially one that is as cool and stylish as you. Ha, I made a rhyme ;)
Gorgeous purple vintage dress. It seems the 80's are in full throttle!ReplyDelete
