Happy Family Day to all my Canadian friends! For some reason, my province (BC) celebrates it a week before the other provinces. I would have liked a day off today!
- Blazer - Jacob, thrifted; last worn here in December 2016 with purple plaid
- Dress - Desigual, thrifted; purchased here for $5.00
- Shoes - Calvin Klein; last seen here in November 2016 with my Wonder Woman ensemble
- Coat (below) - Samuel Dong, thrifted
I adore the square floral pattern on the front of the dress - it reminded me of deconstructed poppies, you know, like Duchamp or Picasso would paint.
- Cuff - Glee
- Earrings - Tania Gleave
A few readers, including Mel-Bee (hello! thanks for the comment!) have asked me how my shoes stay so pristine. Answer: I don't wear them outside! If I do, it's never more than a couple of blocks at the very most.
I carry my shoes to work in a plastic bag. This one:
Then my shoes go into this reusable cloth bag that my mother-in-law gave me about 15 years ago. I use this bag when I go shopping (it rolls up into a little fist-sized package), and I also carry my lunch bag in it on the way to and from work.
And this is what I REALLY look like when I'm just about to leave for work. I have my walkin' shoes on - right now, these lovely thrifted white leather floral Doc Martens are my shoe of choice - my shoe/lunch bag on one shoulder, and my cross-body gold leather snakeskin print purse holding the shoe bag in place.
