It was fate: one of the good employees of the local 7-Eleven said my outfit today was "so lavender-y!" and there we go, post title done.
- Blazer - Talbots, thrifted; purchased here in May for $10.00 (a very good shopping dash with Lesley!)
- Sweater top - Dana Buchman, thrifted; last seen here in December 2015 with purple sequins
- Skirt - Chia, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) on a post-Crafternoon Monday in April
- Booties - Feud; last seen here in November 2015 with more grey-lavender
First wearing of the blazer - it's wool, it's made in Italy, and it's quite a boxy cut - a shorter, curvier blazer would have complemented the curvy longer skirt better.
- Necklace - thrifted
- Earrings - local
- Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop
- Gold ring - Dad's, early 60s, Frances Jewelers
Three more wonderful gifts from my awesome coworkers!
Vizzini was being a total sulky kitty today - he wanted to snuggle (that usually means he's cold), so I made him a little hidey-hole with a blanket on the couch.

Oh, those booties!!!! You always find the most gorgeous shoes.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Cynthia!Delete
I agree with your suggestions on how this outfit could have been improved. It's good; with those tweaks, it could be even better.ReplyDelete
It felt fine on, but once I saw the pictures, I was all, "oops," not a good one today! It's always a learning experience!Delete
I get what you are saying about the proportions. Which teaches us, readers, how to improve our own outfits. Thank you. And I still like it on you.ReplyDelete
You're welcome! I liked it too - just not in the pictures!Delete
That lilac leather skirt is a knockout!ReplyDelete
Isn't it fab? And it has pockets!Delete
I looooved this lavender dream look. If anything I would have belted the blazer and added thin heeled shoes.ReplyDelete
I tried that, but the blazer is a little too bulky - didn't look right. And I didn't have lavender thin-heeled shoes!Delete
You're a vision in purple! Oh, and those booties. I doubt if I would be able to walk in them, though ... xxxReplyDelete
Thank you! They are walkable, but not for long. Easier for a desk job on a slow day!Delete
Oh I knew you were my kinda woman! (Been lurking for a while, sorry) Aberlour and Lindt SeaSalt - that's a good combo. Happy belated birthday. LesleyReplyDelete
Lesley, thank you and welcome! Yes, I've been a single malt (Islays preferred) for many years. And chocolate + salt = food of the gods!Delete
This lavender look is like your instagram filter has gone crazy, but oh how I love it. Sometimes it's great to go completely over the top, and yes, we'll all jump on you if you start to do this every day honey. Lovely friends and workmates to give you all of these treats.ReplyDelete
It was fun to play with - thanks for keeping me honest, ha! I have some awesome coworkers.Delete
