There's nothing like a nice short work week - one more day, and then we're golden. Or pink.
- Silk blouse - INC, vintage 90s, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) in August 2018 with pink pants
- Skirt - Angeleye, consignment, Vancouver; last seen here in May with picnic plaid and orange pops
- Shoes - Prophecy, Vancouver; purchased here for $25.00!
It's taken me a while to figure out what to wear with these pink and white shoes that I bought in Vancouver in June.
I'm so clever!
And the blouse screams quality - look how symmetrical the fabric is!
Aside from the shoe-farts, they were awesome and much admired.
Pink and white bling:
- Leather belt - vintage 80s, thrifted
- Necklace/earrings - vintage 60s, Matisse, vintage expo
- Gold/amethyst ring - Frances Jewelers, c. 1965, Dad's
- Pearl ring - Erth, consignment
I am off for the weekend now, but I'm going to leave you by sharing some links to a wonderful friend, my OG* blogger buddy Wendy Brandes (all links because I love, of course). Wendy and I have known each other since around 2008 when we both started blogging - I never miss one of her posts. She wrote an article for the Huffington Post in 2010 about the "Leopard Week" I threw in her honour after she was a "don't" in the press over a wonderful leopard dress, and I've bought some of her jewelry (this ring, this ring and these rings).
*original gangsta = we go way back
We've always reciprocated links on each others' blogs and given shout-outs, and lately I've been enjoying her videos, especially about vintage clothing - I've learned a lot from her. I'm honoured that she's featured me (blush!) in her latest video, in her post here.
As a little thank you to Wendy for being such a cool person, here are some posts from our blogging friendship over the past decade. I hope you will check them out.
My Wendy Brandes jewelry collection: (I purchased everything, no freebies! I support art!)
This is one of the best things that blogging has brought to my life: this connection with other women who are strong, funny and creative. Thanks for the memories (old and new!) and for your friendship, Wendy.
And to all my friends, have a lovely weekend - I'll be back on Sunday.
