Woo, it's Friday! And it's finally time to wear my celadon suede suit. I showed this off to my coworker Milind, who asked me, "Is that olive?"
Nope, not olive, but at least he got that it was in the green family. I wasn't going to get into celadon and colours too deeply with him. Although now that I poke around online, celadon is actually more of a bluey-green colour, verging into the colours of milky jade. We called this shade "celadon" back in the late 90s, though, so I'm sticking to it.
It will also make it easier for me to find the jacket or skirt next time I wear them, as searching on "Danier" is tedious (I have a lot of Danier). Celadon, celadon, celadon!
- Suede suit - Danier, vintage 90s, thrifted; purchased here for $35.00
- Top - H&M, consignment; last seen here in July 2020 with a colour-blocked skirt
- Shoes - Lola Ramona; last worn here in June 2020 with a pattern-mixed top and yellow
- Coat (below) - Tangerine Jill, thrifted; last seen here (4th outfit) in March
I loved wearing this suit today, although hardly anyone saw me in it. Thanks for letting me twirl for you, colleague Gary!
If it had been 10 or 15 degrees warmer, I might have taken the jacket off.
I do love this top, though, and it's going to appear twice more in this post (foreshadowing).
Masked up - going with more black and white patterns.
The jacket done up. Such a weird cut - I only wore it like this under my coat.
Outerwear - more ruffles! I must have all the ruffles!
- Scarf - vintage 80s, thrifted
- Mask - Mango's
- Leather gloves - vintage, thrifted
- Cuff - vintage fair
- Lucite bangle - Alexis Bittar, consignment, Sidney
- Silver/onyx ring - Toccara, vintage fair
- Shield ring - Nine West
- Earrings - Winnie Tam, customized by me
Um, don't look at my shoddy toe "repair" on that shoe...
Flashback: Lola Ramona Dotted Shoes
I bought these lovely kicks at She She Shoes (now gone) back in March 2017 here - they were in the "last pairs" section and were marked down from the original $200 to $120. Like I was going to say no!
The sole is rubber stripes.
I wore them right away, in March 2017 - this was an outfit that I loved, right from the get-go.
I tend to let the shoes pull focus from whatever else I'm wearing, as here in April 2017.
I felt very "Disney Princess" in this yellow dress, in June 2017.
I love this fun ensemble that I wore to the September 2017 Vintage Expo.
Deja vu! When I got this cute top in May 2018, I immediately paired it with my dotty shoes. Sadly, this was the only wearing of these shoes in 2018. I wonder why?
This was my first outfit of the spring/summer season in April 2019 - I loved the pattern mixing and accessories here.
Trying to make a good outfit out of this silk top in June 2019.
Oh, here we are again with today's top - isn't this an awesome mix? This was in July 2019.
I actually wore this Stella McCartney for Adidas jacket as outerwear with both of the outfits above that feature today's top.
The return of the yellow skirt! This is from June 2020.
Mathy stuff: Well, I definitely need to ensure I plan at least three more outfits out of these shoes this season, to work on the cost-per-wear. I'm only at 12 outfits, but that still comes to $10 each, which is good. I can do better, though!
Do you have a favourite? What would you wear with these dotty shoes?
I'm off now for my weekend, and am very much hoping we get the promised sunshine! I'll be back on Sunday with tales of adventure - thank you so much for dropping by!
