This lovely toile-patterned dress was due for another wearing.
- Dress - Part Two; first worn here (2nd outfit) for Mom's 75th birthday in May
- Jacket (below) - Dolce & Gabbana, vintage, thrifted; last seen here in June for a birthday stroll
- Shoes - Effortless Vivian, Fluevog; last worn here in September 2019 with baby blues
It also gave me the opportunity to wear these lovely shoes, which have been languishing in my closet this season.
I'm also rather fond of all the ruffles on this dress.
Outerwear - I could have gone without a coat, but it matched the shoes so well.
Silver and blue bling:
- Acrylic cuff - thrifted
- Filigree cuff - St. Paul's Cathedral gift shop
- Shield ring - Nine West
- Silver/sodalite ring - Scotland, 1996
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
- Earrings - Vancouver
I bought these lovely Effortless Vivian Fluevogs in Vancouver on our anniversary trip here in March 2016 - actually, L bought them for me, because that's what we do as gifts for each other.
This is my first "real" outfit with these shoes, in April 2016.
I didn't have a lot of baby blue in my closet when I first bought these, so I wore them with this same blue blouse multiple times.
With another cheap patterned dress in April 2016 again.
The shoes went well with the dress, but what was I thinking with a red jacket? Nope, nope, nope.
A fun and colourful combination in June 2016.
My beloved "stained glass" dress (and that same blue blouse!) in April 2017.
I like this outfit, also from April 2017.
A month later, in June 2017.
My cashmere tee makes an appearance in July 2017.
I love this outfit and wore a variation of it four our Spring Tea in 2019 - this outfit came first, and is also from July 2017.
Pondering whether I should keep this top and/or my culottes, in August 2017.
That baby blue blouse gets one more outfit, and it's a good one.
Showing off my pink crystal articulated salamander brooch (it's on my shoulder) in this look from June 2018.
I have all these pieces still, from this August 2018 ensemble.
Looking wistful here in April 2019.
I paired these shoes with my Lifesaver dress the first time I wore it, in July 2019.
Mathy stuff: Including today's outfit, I've worn these shoes 18 times, which brings them down to $16.67 per wear. They're in excellent condition, so I expect to double that eventually!
