I wore a thin floral summery dress anyway.

I have only worn this dress once before, last summer when it was hot and we joined Cat and Ross for dinner before seeing "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" at the drive-in.
I wore a camisole under the top, but I need more coverage.
I haven't been feeling the frilly clothes lately, but this dress makes the cut.

Flashback: Pink Velvet Sol Sana Shoes
We are lucky to have a ton of really good shoe stores in downtown Victoria, and every so often I pop into Footloose on Fort Street to see what's in the "last pairs" section. Footloose tends to carry really good quality, well-made shoes, and I like supporting my local businesses. I don't shop retail often, but when I do, it's usually shoes!
I'd been stalking these shoes for months, waiting for the original $215.00 price to drop.here), this lovely silver and black pair of sandals (pic here) and I used to have these bootie things (pic here) but they were too ugly for me (I bought them on consignment for cheap, $29.00).
I popped into Footloose on a Friday in January 2020 (here) and there they were, marked down to $79.00 in the last pairs section, just waiting for me!
Although it was still January 2020, I wore them right away to make sure they would work.
And then the pandemic hit! I'm a big fan of this April 2020 outfit. The jacket is the perfect match for the shoes.
In contrast, I loathed this outfit so much - also from April 2020. None of it felt right together.
This June 2020 look really stands out. For one thing, I have pink hair.
This outfit, I love. It's a year later, May 2021, and I'm playing with my hair colour (smoky blue).
Maybe I should pair it with this jacket? I've never actually worn them together.
Oh, I've cut all my hair off, here in September 2021. This is the last time I wore these shoes.
Mathy stuff: Today's outfit is the 8th wearing of these shoes, so we are still very early on in their tenure with me. That works out to $9.88 per wearing, and I know I'll be wearing them loads more in the future.
I've been working on the Autumn Jacket (last update here), and am almost ready for another update. As I tried to finish the front (all the blacking/linework is done) last night on the deck, I had some company.
He sat with me to cool off and then hopped back down to lay in the sun again.
