Today was an exhausting day, mentally, with a huge task assigned to me by my boss, requested by corporate. I spent the day with my head down, trying to get as much of it done as I could. I'm used to quick, multiple tasks over my day, so changing to a deep-focus, large task was tough. I did a big chunk of it, though, and now, time to relax! It's the weekend!
- Cardigan - Gap, thrifted; last seen here (2nd outfit) in September 2016 with the Spanish ladies dress
- Dress - Etro, thrifted; first worn here (3rd outfit, past the concert pictures) in October 2016 with orange under it
- Shoes - Nine West, thrifted; purchased here for $18.95
- Coat (below) - Danier Leather
Freshly re-purpled hair as of last night. Thank goodness with my hair longer, I can hide the splatty edges!
here* - they certainly love pattern! Etro was founded in 1968 and is still a family business (Etro is their last name) - they are known for their use of paisley.
*linking 'cause I love!
We visited an Etro store in Florence a few years ago, and had a wonderful experience there (bought L an awesome pair of trousers), and this is the second Etro piece I've found second-hand in Victoria, along with this blazer.
I wore a mustard cami underneath it - it's a bit boobtastic otherwise.
Outerwear. It was too chilly this morning not to have a coat on.
- Earrings/necklace - Murano glass from Venice, gift from L
- Lapis lazuli/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
I have a few fun events planned for this weekend - see you Sunday for the wrap-up!
I noticed your necklace too. It did a fine job of bringing out all the colors you were wearing. A great choice!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Gerrilyn! I was pleased with it.Delete
Shame about the shoes as they are pretty! I really like all the colours in your outfit too, although I had a giggle you were excited to go jacket-less as I was excited yesterday to get all my jeans out for the first jeans wearing of the year, haha! More colorful cardigans like this are on my wishlist to buy this winter.ReplyDelete
Well, I'll try the shoes again and see how they go. Thank you - ha, you are in the opposite mode from us with Winter coming! Bright cardis are always a plus.Delete
This ensemble says it is time to celebrate spring. What wonderful colors and perfect accessories. It also seems like it was deceivingly comfortable for work. A suggestion for the shoes is to store them with a cotton sock or two shoved very tightly in the toe. It has worked for me. I also read another blogger who put water in a sealed plastic bags then placed that in the shoes and placed them in the freezer for the water to expand and stretch the leather. May be worth a try even though I know with my luck I'd probably land up with wet shoes.ReplyDelete
Aw, thank you, Chalotalo! I like your ideas for the shoes - I have heard of a wet sock as well to stretch out toes. I think I can risk it!Delete
Such yummy colours in this outfit! Nice score on the Etro dress. I wore pointy toed flats all through the 80's and I wonder if that contributed to my current bunion situation. No more pointy-toes for me!ReplyDelete
I still giggle over good scores on my clothes. I think it was those pointy-toe shoes that wrecked our feet!Delete
A fabulous ode to spring here Sheila. And those shoes are lovely. I get the same thing with pointy shoes too. I suppose our feet really aren't shaped like that are they? I wore pointy boots to work yesterday and by mid afternoon I had to get Polly to pull them off for me as my feet had swollen so much! And no, that wasn't in her job description!ReplyDelete
Thank you! No, those pointy shoes are murder on the toes. And it only gets worse as we get older, doesn't it? Dang!Delete
ohhh, I love Etro prints!, and your dress is a gorgeous piece, fits you like a dream and has lots of colors to play with!! a winner!!ReplyDelete
They make wonderful prints. I am always happy to find such a quality piece. Thank you!Delete
That is a great dress and for 6.00 an Etro dress was a bargain ! They just opened a shop here and its always empty.. I am guessing because of the prices. This dress has a Pucci feel to it and I can also imagine it being worn with "our" Tsubo shoes.ReplyDelete
Yes, they are not cheap! "Our" shoes would have been perfect with it - I got rid of mine a few years ago, though. They had a good run. :)Delete
