I'm still working through my not-yet-worn items for spring/summer - I get all excited over new things, and forget that I have awesome clothes that I've had for years.
- Sweater - Kersh, print by Pina, thrifted; last seen here in May with a maxi and cowboy boots
- Skirt - Alfred Sung, vintage 80s, consignment; last worn here in June 2018 with chartreuse (love that outfit)
- Shoes - Prepare Guide, Fluevog; last seen here in July with neon brights
- Coat (below) - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last worn here a week ago
I've had this skirt since 2009 (here) when I wore it to a curling workshop (really!). Curling the sport, not for hair, ha ha!
For those of you who have not heard of Alfred Sung, he was "Canada's Yves St. Laurent" back in the early/mid-80s. There's an interesting article here from 1983, which mentions the Monaco Group (that's Club Monaco, the long-time Canadian brand, and the Joseph Mimran mentioned in the article is the founder of Club Monaco and the Joe Fresh line of clothing). It's a bit of a flashback from days when there was still a thriving Canadian (and US) manufacturing industry, and the goal was to open brick-and-mortar stores and have boutiques in US department stores. My skirt is made in Canada, and it's pre-Great Size Shift of the mid-80s (it's marked a 12, but fits like a modern size 8), so it's a fairly early piece for him.
The jelly-deer (not jelly-fish) sweater is a great staple as a fun top. It's hard to see in these pictures, but the sweater has a glitter thread running through it.
Just an easy look for a quiet week.
...and a coat! It's chilly in the mornings.
