Hello, my friends! It's Friday and I'm so glad - it's been a physically demanding week, and I just need some chill time.
- Dress - Eliza J, consignment; last seen here in August 2019 with pops of yellow
- Shoes - Karl Lagerfeld; last worn here a couple of weeks ago for a shopping expedition
- Bomber jacket (below) - Le Tigre, thrifted; last seen here in May with the jelly-deer sweater
I spent most of my day crawling under desks (ugh, so many pairs of shoes) and putting people's personal detritus into boxes. I have one more floor to go.
Anyway, yes, the dress! Isn't it pretty? I love a classic fit-and-flare shape like this and the stripes are so jaunty.
I should really try orange or pink or emerald green with it, just to shake things up. Red would look awesome too.
I layered my bomber jacket over it for sun coverage - the navy blues matched exactly.
And pockets in the bomber jacket. This is also only its third wear - will it last and become a closet classic? Only time will tell.
- Cuff - thrifted
- Leather belt - vintage, Liz Claiborne, thrifted
- Bakelite earrings - vintage 60s, vintage fair
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
These yellow ballet flats were the result of some browsing at the Bay department store in late July 2017 (here) - I was grabbing at all kinds of things from the sale racks to try on, until I reminded myself that I would rather make most of my purchases second-hand. I stopped and put back everything, but not these.
I wore them right away, in August 2017 with my Spanish ladies dress, which is another jammy dress that I have yet to wear this year.
I wore them again in August to go draw at a sunflower farm with Mom.
For Vero's birthday party, in September 2017.
Later in September, I was looking to the weekend.
If I have to walk somewhere in the hot months, I often turn to these shoes.

This outfit was worn to the theatre with Mom in May 2018. Nice matchy purse!
On the other hand, this is totally a weekend look - very chill and comfy. I probably went shopping in this.
With my purple tiger blouse again. Another shopping outfit.
They're a perfect match. This was in August 2018.
From May 2019, again picking out a colour from a pattern.
This looks like a weekend outfit, but it could easily have been worn to work on a Casual Friday.
Going with all yellow-chartreuse-green tones here, also in May 2019.
This was an outfit I wore to the Ulti field in June 2019, and out for lunch after the game.
A pretty work outfit, in August 2019.
Getting one last wear out of them in September 2019, before I pack them away for the cold months.
So much, that I did it again in April 2020.
And here's the last time I wore them, for my last shopping trip to Turnabout earlier this month.
Mathy stuff: The current outfit is the 15th time I've worn these, bringing my cost-per-wear to $2.76. I'm very pleased with that!
Bonus cat pictures! Vizzini hid from the cleaners on Thursday morning.

Later, there was some vigorous toe-licking going on out on the deck.
|"Do you mind? I'm having a pedicure."|
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by.
