Funky Friday - The Return of the Spanish Ladies Dress

Not to be a walking cliche but TGIF! What a long day.
This is my first "bare legs" day of the year! It was a little chilly this morning, but fine for the day. Yay! More shaving!

  • Cardigan - Jessica Howard, thrifted; purchased here for $6.00
  • Dress - Lirub; last seen here in August 2014 with weekend hair
  • Shoes - Tsubo; last worn here in September 2014 with chartreuse

I adore this dress, and I know it has its fans out there in the blogosphere - I've had it since 2010, when L, Mom and I went to London here.
Today was the first wear of this little shrug-ish cardi. It did remind me a bit of a boob-holster, but it stayed in place and I was warm without feeling I was overly covered.

I also wore my red frilly vintage slip under it all to make the skirt extra flouncy (and cover the cleavage).
I can see my bare toes!

Outerwear for morning, all bundled up.
No gloves and jacket open on the way home.

The stuff:
Ah, the Kraft Dinner shoes! I love everything about these except that they rub on my toes. But I'm not willing to give them up. Toes must get tougher!

Round bling:
I'm so predictable - I always wear the same accessories with this dress.

  • Belt - Plum
  • Cuff - thrifted
  • Earrings - Bakelite, vintage 60s, vintage fair

Tomorrow's my first day of Ultimate frisbee for the season, followed by brunch and Winesday - a busy day! What are you up to this weekend?


  1. Yey for the first bare-legged day! :) Always nice when the weather heats up enough to shed the tights.

    I do like that red belt with the dress, so no harm in being a little predictable now and then.

  2. Lovely frock(suits ya:) accessorized well(love mellow, sunny yellow:)!

  3. Oh how I love that dress. Can I be on the list of people who want it when you're done?? Love yellow shoes too. xox

  4. I love that shrug! I've been looking for similar little sweaters for the office (not that I need to anymore) because they are cute and warm against summer A/C. That dress print is just perfect.

  5. Pretty dress. Boob-holster?! This weekend, I'm excited about doing a photoshoot with someone else taking my pictures.

  6. Love this dress with a green cardi - great combination!

  7. oh yes, I'm a huge fan of your 'spanish ladies' dress and it looks particularly fabulous with those yellow accessories and cute jacket!!

  8. I'm another fan of that dress and of those hot shoes.
    Gosh they've come a long way just like mine - of course yours are in better shape - they're really good shoes.
