Hello Bloggers - hope you have all had a good week. Last Friday I wore a geometric printed polyester dress in blue and purple and I told you that I had a version in pink. Thanks to all the wonderful comments I thought I would wear the pink one for Frock on Friday:
|Pink Polyester Osti Fashions Dress $2 Toffs|
Pink Melissa Shoes bought from Melissa website
White Flower, pink bracelet and watch both retail
Knock-off Vivienne Westwood Orb earrings from Trademe
Iridescent vintage necklace from Butterflies Hospice Shop
I forget which day I wore my Diane Freis dress again - this time with orange and cream accents:
|1980s Diane Freis dress $2 Toffs|
Bone necklace and orange beads and bracelet Trademe
Cream vintage bangle Butterflies Hospice Shop
Jacket retail and leather belt thrifted
Orange Melissa sandals Trademe
I love this dress so much - it is comfortable, really well made and the fabric is excellent quality. There are so many colours in it I can team it up with lots of different accessories. Possibly the best $2 I have ever spent.
The weather is definitely changing from summer to autumn. One of my favourite plants is finally flowering - I think its called Sedum. Anyway it is magnet for big furry bumble bees.
I spotted the black necklace I am wearing on a mannequin in the Presbyterian Support Yellow shop a couple of weeks back and had not worn it. It was $6 and I think the long beads are bakelite. I am not sure that it as dramatic as the bumble bee on the sedum but I love the contrast of the shapes with the brightness of the dress.
Earlier this week I wore trousers for the first time in ages and ages and I am actually posting a picture!
Yes, I am posting a a gratuitous pussy photo as well. He just cannot resist a photo shoot. He was very suspicious about my bag on the ground. In the house he will often try and get into a bag and go to sleep. Anyway, back to the outfit. I still fit the trousers - to my surprise - and I was fairly comfortable in them too. Somehow though, I did not feel quite my normal self with out fabric swishing around my legs in the form of a skirt or a dress.
Right, thats my lot for tonight. Plans for the weekend include washing, cleaning, cooking, etc etc. Oh, and hopefully some sewing!!
