Today was grey and rainy - a typical West Coast day, and I don't mind the rain (I was born here, after all).
I tell myself these things and it makes me feel better. The rain is my grey dress, the green is the grass buried under all the leaves, and the gold is like the leaves themselves.
- Dress - Banana Republic, thrifted; last seen here in July with weekend hair
- Shoes - Half-Truth Tanya, Fluevog; last worn here (6th outfit) earlier this month with green velvet
I like that I can inspire this reaction in people. Personally, I think it was the scarf in the hair (referred to variously as my headband, my head-thing, and "that thing in your hair"). There just aren't that many people who wear scarves in their hair these days.
Bold gold bling:
- Scarf - Vera, thrifted
- Belt - thrifted
- Necklace - consignment (one of many items in a $10.95 grab bag)
- Bracelet/earrings - vintage 60s? Mom's, liberated from her jewelry box in the early 1980s
I liked how the square shapes on the necklace, the rectangular "tiles" in the bracelet and the earrings, the squared buckle of the belt (yes, that's an elastic on the belt - I am klassy all the way), and even the squared heel on the shoes (and the buckles) all went so well together. So many parallelograms! And it contrasted nicely with the organic shapes of the not-really lace of the dress.
I like when all those details come together, even if I'm the only one who notices them.
