Stripes and Circles

Unlike yesterday's Forgotten Dress, I have been eagerly looking forward to wearing this dress again. 
Pow! Turquoise! Bam! Yellow!

  • Dress - Jacob, thrifted; first worn here in May with blue suede Fluevogs
  • Shoes - Prepare Guide, Fluevog; last worn here (2nd outfit) in May for Mental Health Week

I had a pretty busy day, followed by a haircut. I am shorn! And I'm re-dyeing my hair purple so that I will be just right for the blogger meet-up.
Only two weeks to go!

The stuff:
I love these shoes so much. I walked to and from our other office, to my hair appointment, and back to the bus stop and my feet are singing.

Geometric bling:
Circles, parallelograms, planes.

  • Belt - vintage 80s, thrifted
  • Cuff - thrifted
  • Earrings - vintage 50s Bakelite, vintage fair

I'm taking a quiet weekend with L, so I'll be back on Sunday. Have a lovely weekend!


  1. Love the bright accessories with this! :)

    I think stripes are my favourite print - so easy to wear and everything seems to compliment them! :)

  2. Sheila - Always love your outfits but the last 5 posts have been absolutely fabulous! LW

  3. Sheila, that dress loves you. You need to have it in frequent rotation.

  4. I love those shoes too!! There is a shop in Courtenay now selling Fluevogs but it's a small selection. I suppose that is good news for my bank account as I've yet to see a pair that have my name on them. This dress look great on you and I love the way you've accessorised it. Looking forward to meeting you in a couple of weeks! I will be getting there early on Friday too-taking the float plane from Comox to Vancouver and getting there around 9:30am. I intend to have a relaxing poke around on Robson and probably sit in a cafe for a long time. xoxo

  5. I love the stripes. I see them everything and think, oh, man, I gotta get some stripes. So far, I have not. The yellow is a great accent. I laughed at the hair thing - I need a cut but I want my hair to look its peaky best for the meetup. Heh.

  6. Hope the smoke has cleared Sheila, we've sent 100 firefighters from Australia.
    Best wishes,

    Diane from Perth, Australia

  7. Turquoise and yellow - what a fabulous combination! And with stripes? Even better! xx

  8. fabulous accessories! love that bold colorful sixties vibe!! and they look so cool on your striped dress!!

  9. Yes, yes !
    I love a good striped dress and with these colours how could I not ?!
    Nicely done Sheila.
