We're still on our run of good weather - I don't want to jinx it by mentioning the "r" word! - and I'm still able to wear some of my more summery finds as autumn looks, including this soft silk dress.
- Dress - T. Babaton, garage sale; purchased here on the weekend for $30.00
- Skirt - Pink Tartan, thrifted; purchased here on the weekend for $16.95
- Shoes - Amalfi, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in August 2017(!) with a fake flapper dress
- Coat (below) - Vassali, consignment; last worn here a couple of weeks ago
I've packed this dress away now for spring, but isn't it cute? Also, no way is that appropriate dress length in an office! Maybe on a hot summer weekend for a stroll to town for brunch, but not at work. I also work a cami under it for coverage.
I bloused the top of the dress a little more above my belt to make sure the top and bottom were equal - the proportions make it look more like a tunic that way.
I still love that this dress/tunic has pockets.
Outerwear - again, nice in the morning, unneeded by 5pm.
|Vizzini was poking around in my bags|
Those bags in the background are my Hallowe'en decorations - they are really heavy (I have a couple of cast-iron pieces), so I took the bus to work.
- Scarf - gift from Mom
- Gloves - Parkhurst
Vizzini, are you poking your nose where it doesn't belong?
|"Of course not!"|
A good look at the back of this beautiful coat.
I decorated my office for Hallowe'en today - I took a few pictures, so will share those with you tomorrow. Due to a certain bitey/chewy feline, I can't put decorations up at home or they will be destroyed.
|"I resent your implications, Woman."|
Having my personal decorations up at work means I get to share them with others and enjoy them more myself. Win!
- Belt - Pringle of Scotland, vintage fair
- Chain bracelet - Club Monaco
- Earrings - thrifted
- Pearl ring - Erth, consignment
- Bronze ring - P. Sarpaneva, c. 1970, vintage expo
- Spinner ring - Twang & Pearl
Vizzini's been very discombobulated lately. L and I have been caring for our friends' cat Baxter all week, so our schedule has been disrupted. You know how cats like routine.
|"I am quite put out by all your shenanigans, Woman. Come pat me."|
I often have One Last Snuggle with him before I go.
|"Satisfactory. You may leave now."|
And now he's hiding from the vacuum cleaner. He's going to need extra lovin' tonight!
Love the snazzy shoes. I envy the small size of your feet: I can't imagine going into a shoe store and finding shoes that fit.ReplyDelete
It's all relative, darlin' - my feet are on the big side for women - but I hear ya. There are lots of options online!!Delete
Great idea to wear the dress over a skirt with a belt - must try it, I'm often put off from dresses that I think are too short. And snakeskin shoes, wow, bang on trend. The coat is super stylish.ReplyDelete
I was so pleased at how it turned out - thank you, Gail.Delete
It's such a beautiful dress even if more of a tunic - and I like the blouson effect of it belted, I do that often with longer tops as I'm petite! Works really nicely with your skirt.ReplyDelete
I know, it's right up your alley, isn't it, Mica? Thank you!Delete
I am digging your accessories, but I am not digging the need for outerwear. I refuse to pull out my winter coat.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Krysten! Ha, I need something in the mornings - it's fall! No winter coats yet, though.Delete
Thanks for visiting my blog!
I love tunics - I really need more in my life but for me plain and solid colors.ReplyDelete
Doing the tunic with the skirt is brilliant and so classy.
Thanks, Trisha! I love showing off my outfits to you in person.Delete
I just knew you'd come up with a solution to wear that dress before it's being stored away for next Summer! What a great idea to wear it as a tunic over your new skirt. Two new items in one go, too! And wow, that belt and snakeskin shoes are just fabulous, too. Would you believe I am looking forward to wearing a coat, beret and gloves? xxxReplyDelete
Thanks, Ann - ah, you're getting to know my methods. :) I believe you - I am too.Delete
Yes for snake print. I wore it today too. Lovely!ReplyDelete
Yay! We're matchy, Nancy!Delete
A very good outfit. I like anything with green. Amazing that those shoes are vintage. They look so 2018. Love your cat talk/translations haha.ReplyDelete
Everything comes around again, hey, Greetje? Thank you! Ha, Vizzini is a monster!Delete
I always love the cat photobombs and commentary.ReplyDelete
Your outfit is pretty. I like the pretty green shade of the skirt and I bet a silk blouse like that feels so nice against your skin!x
Thanks, Kezzie! I always include Vizzini pics. Thanks so much - yes, the silk felt wonderful. I love natural fibres.Delete
Always a fan of snake print! And cats!ReplyDelete
You know it! Great to see you, Wendy!Delete
cat photos - yeah!! I can waste hours of Facebook, watching the videos of a cat rescue sanctuary I follow in Greece.ReplyDelete
Love the tunic over the skirt, what a great idea. The shoes are very elegant. xxx
Aw, that would suck me in as well. Thank you!Delete
What a great way to wear that dress, which happens to be right "on trend" which by now I know you don't care about ;)ReplyDelete
I know, ooh, look at me, I'm on trend, lol. Thanks, hon!Delete
Snakeskin is always "in", in my book. It always surprises me when someone says something is on trend because I never pay attention, I just like to wear styles I like. :)ReplyDelete
Jess, I so agree! I always get a laugh when something I own already is "on trend"...AGAIN!Delete
