Well, I hadn't planned on posting today, so consider this a bonus! Plus, for me, it'll be one less outfit to have tacked onto my Bigass Weekend post, and that means more time to chill. It's a win.
- Dress - Max & Co., Florence, Italy; last worn here in December 2018 as festive Florentine!
- Shoes - Room 502 Entrance, Fluevog; last seen here in February on a snow day
- Leather coat (below) - Danier, thrifted; last worn here earlier this month
I'm not really sure how to take that - do I look like a caricature? I mulled over it for a while, then let it go.
I'm glad I got one more wearing out of this lovely dress. The fabric was hand-woven in Italy, the dress was made in Italy, and I bought it in Italy!
I'm glad the shininess of it shows here.
Outerwear - done up in the morning, undone on the way home.
- Belt - thrifted, Powell River
- Snake bracelet - Whiting & Davis, vintage 80s, vintage fair
- Earrings - vintage fair
- Necklace - vintage fair; purchased here for $5.00 - first wearing
- Pin (below) - Dodds, vintage 60s, vintage fair; purchased here for $2.00 - first wearing
Shall I go "Laverne" and wear my S on all my clothes?
Lovely to see you in my Bloglovin' feed this morning, Sheila!ReplyDelete
I love that dress - the colour, the sparkle and the shape, no wonder the little girl was enamoured. I bet she loved that snake, too.
I'd forgotten all about Laverne, you totally should wear an S on all your clothes.
Have a fab weekend. xxx
Thank you, Vix! Yes, the little one was quite excited by everything. I think I should definitely get in the S habit (forgot today, though - will have to move my pin into my closet!).Delete
Gah!!!! I adore those shoes too! LiseReplyDelete
I do have a very good shoe collection, Lise! Thank you!Delete
I would definitely see that as a compliment Sheila! :) You do look so stunning in purple and this is a fun outfit, I can see why your colleague and the little girl were both complimenting you! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mica! I took it as a compliment, but I did have to think about it a bit.Delete
Lovely outfit; no surprise it amazes little children. Your influence spreads!ReplyDelete
Kids love my outfits! I'm just a big kid at heart.Delete
Such a marvellous outfit to end the week, Sheila! I wouldn't mind being called the purple fairy at all. Love the shoes, and the "S" pin is delightful. Must look out for an "A" pin now ... xxxReplyDelete
Thank you, Ann! Hee, it's kind of sweet. If I spot an A I'll send it to you.Delete
What a fabulous Purple Fairy you make!ReplyDelete
I love the dress and the shoes are so fabulous. They look incredibly comfortable.
Have a great week!
Thank you, Vronni! The shoes were amazing to wear again.Delete
OOh, I would have told you I liked your outfit on the bus too! It's so shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny! I love it. So pretty and I love the teal shade! The shoes are really pretty too. Are they comfy?xReplyDelete
It's even better in person, Kezzie, thank you! Yes, the shoes are wonderfully soft and comfy to wear.Delete
I think it's a compliment! Super lovely fem shiny dress--- I can see the magical fairy vibe!ReplyDelete
Agreed, Becky, thank you!Delete
I'd take it as a compliment, perhaps he thought you looked MAGICAL like a fairy.ReplyDelete
My students love my snake bangle too, even anything snakeprint gets a gasp of delight! X
I think he did - he's one of my colleagues who loves to see what I'm wearing every day. Ha, I love the image of your students gasping at your jewelry!Delete
What a gorgeous purple fairy you make! The shiny dress is awesome and styled perfect with those shoes and tights. How fab that you'll have captured that little girl's imagination - one day she may go on to do the same... xReplyDelete
Thank you, Anna! I hope that my style can inspire a future fashionista! How awesome would that be?Delete
woww, what a fab outfit! and I love your 'purple fairy good vibes', lots of attitude!ReplyDelete
This dress is obviously a quality piece, the texture and shine are so lovely! and fits you so fabulously!. Love it with the purple shoes and jacket!, and gold!
Thank you so much! Yes, the dress is amazing to wear.Delete
Yes! wear that "S" with everything my dear purple fairy! How could you not make such an amazing impression in that dress? Italians are the best when it comes to clothing.ReplyDelete
I totally am going to do that, Lorena. I love this dress and love the quality of it.Delete
Your Purple Fairy outfit is lovely - I really like that shape of dress on you, and the length shows off your legs.ReplyDelete
I love a classic fit-and-flare. Must wear another one soon.Delete
Hi -Your outfits inspire me daily and I have a similar taste as you- the dress is amazing! I would totally wear that entire outfit to school. Thank you for posting your outfits- they do truly inspire!ReplyDelete
I lurk every day but am so in love with the room 502s that I have come out of the crypt...I'm looking at used ones but they are more than the originals because they are out of stock! Before I spend more on shoes than I've spent on clothes the past 10 years (I am a hardcore thrifter) can you tell me if they are wearable? I have trouble with heels- I can't last very long in them. But I don't spend a lot on shoes so maybe expensive ones are comfortable? :)
Hello, czaitz, thank you so much for commenting, and for your very kind words! I'm so glad to inspire you - that's what keeps us bloggers going!Delete
I think you would not enjoy the heel, to be honest - it is 3 inches, which is as high as I can go. The shoes are comfy, but if you can't do heels, don't do them. Fluevog does some fantastic flats, in some very funky style - YES, expensive shoes are more comfortable!!
Thanks so much for replying- that's very helpful. Yes, I'm about to make a $$ purchase for a nice pair of shoes but they have to be wearable so your input is valuable! I just don't live anywhere near a Fluevog store...Michigan! Thanks again- and I'm Carrie.Delete
If you decide to go with Fluevog, they do have a number you can call to speak with one of their experts, who can help you with things like sizing, width and fit. It's worth it if you can't try them on. Good luck with your new shoes, Carrie, and super-great to meet a reader. Don't be a stranger. ;-PDelete
