I just want to share a selection of outfits I have worn over the last couple of weeks. First up, another $1 polyester dress, from the Presbyterian Support Shop:
This vision of loveliness has an art deco feel with the straight bodice, slightly longer length, and the pleated lower. The neckline is a bit different the collar and tie create a nice v shape but for the sake of protecting my cleavage there is what I can only describe as a modesty band across the V to prevent unnecessary cleavage showing. The pattern is quite unusual too a sort of leopard print black on a dark petrol blue colour with large red flowers. As you can see I colour co-ordinated my accessories and wore off-white tights (gift from work colleague) and red shoes, a red cardigan (thrifted) and red jewellry (segmented bangles from Savemart).
Two other outfits I want to share with you I have already posted on facebook -
On a particularly cold blustery day I was very happy to wear my teddy bear coat which I got from the Hospice Shop recently. The skirt is the Indian one I found at Toffs for $2 and refashioned to fit me. The scarf I bought retail ages ago because I loved all the vibrant colours. The black boots were another fantastic find at the Hospice Shop. In comparison on the left - from a couple of Sunday's ago - I am wearing another $1 polyester dress from Presbyterian Support. Its a home-made one, in a blue and gold floral print and I have teamed it up with a thrifted belt and a yellow gold chiffon scarf worn as a head band was found at Toffs for $2.
That's all from me, I am doing something really special with my family tomorrow night and hope to post about over the weekend.
Bye bye for now,
