I just got home from a lovely afternoon at a craft show and then having pie at Wanda's Pie in the Sky with Rachel the So-so Sewer. Despite the intermittent rain and awful humidity it was a great way to spend a Sunday. Now I am sitting on my new sofa getting caught up on the last few episodes of the last season of The Walking Dead so I thought I should post last week's outfits.
Cardigan: H&M (ugh)
Dress: Anthropologie (last worn here)
Belt: Value Village
Shoes: Fluevog Integrity | Amie in Neon Orange
After being so bright at the Pride parade I had to continue with the bright loud colours.
Orange and blue is my new favourite colour combination. It was a happy surprise that this belt I had matches this cardigan perfectly. Unfortunately, I bought this cardigan at H&M but I had to replace another blue sweater and this is the only one I could find in the summer. I know I'll wear it a lot though.
Have I mentioned that I love these shoes? They're currently on sale from Fluevog. I'm tempted to go and get another pair.
More orange and blue! My coworker said that this dress reminded her of the wallpaper from her childhood kitchen. I took it as a complement since I get that same vibe too.
Dress: Meg Shops "Prison Dress" on West Queen West
Shoes: Liebling (last worn here)
The best part about this dress, other than the print, are the pockets.
I would like a zillion dresses exactly like this in tonnes of patterns. I wish I could sew better. I'm sure there's a pattern out there for a simple shift dress like this. I have some cute fabric with polar bears on it that would be perfect for this type of dress.
I didn't intend to buy this dress. I was going to buy a different one but the sales woman convinced me to try this on for fun and I loved it. I loved the other one too but I couldn't afford both.
It's a nice match for my turquoise shoes too.
I forgot to take pictures on Thursday, probably because I wasn't happy with what I was wearing. I bought a "mullet dress" a few weeks ago and finally wore it but it has an elastic waist which drove me cuckoo all day.
So skipping to Friday...
Dress: Sweet Soul (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Faiths Low | Reumah
(last worn here)
I love this dress despite the wrinkles mostly for its front pouch pocket.
I'm not sure I love these shoes though. I may put them in my consignment pile or try to sell them on the FlueMarket. They are already quite on sale on the Fluevog site though so someone might want to get them new rather than used.
I love the wooden heel but I'm not really a fan of the wedge shoe. Maybe I'll give them one more wear just to see how I feel about them.
What do you think? Should they stay or should they go?
Now that I have my couch and a place to blog I'll try to be more regular with my posts.
