Phew! One more day till the long weekend! I can hardly wait!
- Dress - Etro, vintage 90s, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in June for dinner out
- Shoes - Marc Jacobs, thrifted; purchased here for $29.95 last Friday
- Jacket (below) - Suzy Shier, thrifted; last seen here earlier this month with giant pants
I'm wearing a full-length vintage slip under this, plus a cotton Gap cami over that for the cleavage area.
It worked! I did get a love of love for the dress/shoe combo.
Welcome back, wispy hair - my fine, baby hair gets like this when it's longer. I clipped it up again, and needed another clippy thing (technical term) to keep the wisps from escaping. It sort of worked.
I'm feeling waffly about this blue jacket. It's certainly NOT a chi-chi brand - Suzy Shier was a Canadian mall chain (I worked in their sister store, LA Express, for about 6 months in 1994). It was a fixture when I was a teen/young adult - I remember having many pieces from there when I was in school and entering the work world.
Here's how I've worn it before:
- As noted above, here, with giant pants, and aqua and purple accents
- With pink pants and Star Wars shoes here (look how short my hair is!)
- Here with a vintage strapless dress and orange shoes
I paid $6.00 for it, and that's 4 wears, so $1.50 per wear. But still, I waffle!
Leave me your vote (keep it, let it go) in the comments, and I will go with the will of the crowd! The cut-off is by the time I finish writing my Bigass Weekend Wrap-Up(TM) on Monday (a totally arbitrary non-time-specific deadline).
I discovered the previous price tags under the $29.95 tag when I picked it off last night: it was originally $74.95, then $44.95, before $29.95. Even my thrift finds are good deals. Of course, these were $375.00 originally, back in the early 00s, I think (due to non-Internet presence of them).
Silver and blue bling:
- Necklace - thrifted
- Cuff/earrings - local
- Lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
Some of you long-time readers might remember that I won an award from my provincial Weight Watchers back in November 2013, which I wrote about it here (scroll down a ways - remember my barn skirt?). I had taken it to our centre, where I used to work, so that I could see it, but I work at a different location now and I wanted it back. My awesome receptionist Betty picked it back up for me.
Have a wonderful weekend! I have so many adventures planned, and I'll be back on Monday to share 'em with you!
