New Miu, Chartreuse and Copper

Even though this silk top is squarely in the spring/summer wardrobe category, I like to get at least one wearing in of new-to-me things right away. 
 And right now, the weather is cooperating with warm days. Not for long, though, I'm sure.

  • Top - Miu Miu, thrifted; purchased here for $17.99
  • Skirt - LAMB, 2005, consignment, Vancouver; last worn here in July with red
  • Shoes - Chie Mihara; last seen here in September with a striped dress and green pants
  • Coat (below) - Zara, gift from Dominique; last worn here in April

This top was a delight to wear - the silk was warm enough in my air-conditioned office.
 I layered a mustard yellow cami under it for coverage (it is sheer in the front), which worked well under the chartreuse.

I like how the waist fits snugly, but the rest is nice and loose.
 I kept this light-weight skirt out as it has a copper thread woven into it - good for matching to all my fall/winter copper jewelry.

I had planned to wear little socks with these shoes (I also have fishnets on), but it felt too fashion-y. Not quite me.
 My cocoon coat returns! I was all about the wacky shapes today.

The stuff:
 I like these sandals for fall and am looking forward to doing some tights with them. Purple? Brown? Sure!

Copper bling:
Some favourite pieces return.

  • Bracelet/earrings - Renoir, vintage 60s, vintage fair
  • Bracelet - Renoir, vintage 60s, thrifted
  • Ring - Sarah Coventry, vintage store in Powell River


  1. Love those colours together. That Miu Miu top looks great on. I'd definitely wear those gorgeous sandals with purple opaque tights. xxx

  2. Yes, it's a fabulous top and I love the colour of it with the skirt and shoes. I think purple or brown tights would look amazing!

    1. Thank you, Vronni! I agree - I plan to have fun with my exposed feet in winter!

  3. you and your elegant legs :) Looking great as usual!!

  4. Didn't have to wait long for the Miu Miu top to make an appearance, and it's just fabulous. It looks fantastic with the copper tone of that amazing skirt. And:yes to the sandals with purple tights! xxx

    1. Nope, I had to wear it while the weather's still nice. I love it with the copper too. Ooh, that's three votes for purple - I'm gonna do it!

  5. Loving this magical drapey skirt and fabulous MIU MIU applique in chartreuse. Those are the perfect sandals, as for tights, maybe purple, argyle and- or brown. Look for leopard tights too.

    1. Thank you, Elle! I like the idea of argyle - I definitely have brown and purple. Ooh, must watch for leopard tights - thanks for the idea!

  6. Fabulous pairing with this ensemble my dear! Love, love, love the whole thing - feminine top, shapely skirt and those classic sandals - all lovingly assembled. Hurrah about the idea of tights rather than socks. Good call.

    1. Thanks so much, Anna! Yeah, I like the idea of socks and sandals, but not how it looks.

  7. fabulous ensemble, I love particularly your copper bling and the amazing skirt, such a great shape and color!. And looking forward to see purple tights with your sandals! woww!

  8. All this cooper jewellery is such a great idea to bring out the shade of that new skirt.
    I can picture this skirt in the cooler months with a black turtle neck and tights.

    1. It was made for my copper collection! I don't really do that turtleneck and tights look, but yes, that would work really well.

  9. Love the orange sandals- purple or brown tights would look great with them! :)
