Lime Green, Pops of White and Mom's Jewelry

I attended a work event after my day in the office - my colleagues there were very entertained by my bright green dress. 
"It's very lime," said one. L said I looked like "Classic Joker" - in a good way! 

  • Dress - Zara, consignment; purchased here for $34.99
  • Shoes - Zoomies Ishshoes, Fluevog; last worn here in October 2023 with autumn whites and acid-wash denim
  • Suede coat (below) - Tadmor, vintage 70s, vintage mall; last seen here in February

The light indoors is not as accurate - the colour is closer to the neon green in the stair picture. Vibrant!
I enjoyed seeing my colleagues and even played a game of pool with Sid. He won - I am terrible at pool, but enthusiastic. I like to hit the balls around! 

This is the ultimate Jammy Dress, although it lacks pockets.
All the side gathers make it very drapey. It looks like a big droopy sack without the belt. 

I look forward to wearing it with other colours, but for today I went with pops of white. 
It was comfy to wear - I liked the nice thick fabric. 

It was very cold today, despite the sun later.

 I was glad I had this thick wind-resistant suede coat.
Aw, this makes me miss Vanity Fair Antique Mall - I bought it there, new with its original tags on! (pics here). 

This scarf was perfect with the outfit. A gorgeous Yves Saint Laurent from the 1980s - what a find. 

  • Scarf - Yves Saint Laurent, thrifted
  • Gloves - Parkhurst

The stuff: 
My feet were tired from two hours of standing and playing pool at the event, but I do love these shoes. 

Green bling: 
Mostly Mom's! 

  • Belt - Banana Republic, thrifted
  • Rhinestone bracelet - vintage 60s, Mom's
  • Glass bangle - thrifted
  • Necklace - vintage 60s, Mom's
  • Olivine/coral ring - Hawaii, c. 1976, Mom's
  • Cocktail ring - vintage 70s, Mom's
  • Earrings - Stella and Dot, consignment, Vancouver

Green is a dominant colour in my spring/summer wardrobe, and this "set" holds a special place in my heart. 


  1. More spring color! I had a chuckle when reading L’s comment. ;) The side gathers take the dress up a notch from plain to interesting. I can just picture you enjoying playing pool as you hit a ball; there’s a purpose to this game, who cares! Always special to wear jewelry that is special for the person it came from. I think your coat is teal; what a lovely deep color.
    Cheers, Laurie

  2. Very vibrant! Love the scarf too. I think this colour looks fascinating on almost every shade of green!

  3. Absolutely love this look, I love the accessories you paired it with as well! The pink glasses, add some extra spunk! Your necklaces are soooo beautiful as well! Hope you have an amazing rest of your spring!

    xoxo, Midori

  4. Never mind the lack of pockets, that is one stunner of a dress. Very lime indeed and it pairs fabulously with your hair! And you're wearing yet another one of my favourite coats of yours too. The scarf is the perfect go-between! xxx

  5. That dress has a beautiful shape. Go bold or go home as they say! I love the coat that you have teamed it with and of course a touch of YSL doesn't hurt! x

  6. That dress just screams Spring! That coat's a firm favourite and the scarf couldn't be a btter choice. xxx

  7. My, that's a gorgeous neon dress. I love how bold is this neon green colour.
    I love the 'classical Joker in a good way' compliment. I always thought his fashion sense was rather fabulous. I liked comic books as a kid.
    The green designer scarf is really a perfect pairing with this dress. A wonderful find.
    You look fantastic!

  8. I love that you broke the American rule and wore white shoes before Memorial Day! You rebel, you! You are stunning in that lime green dress...perfect acoutrements!
