Cobalt, Dots and Cherry

Dang it, what day is it? Monday? Feels like Monday.
Wednesday is a trickster for sure, though. Thought I'd catch it off guard with polka dots.

My new-to-me vintage blouse (purchased on Saturday here for $5.00) gets its debut.
I discovered that the rear buttons open up when I'm wearing a jacket and cross-body purse. Nice. Fortunately, I have a full-length vintage (of course) slip underneath this outfit, so nothing was exposed (other than the slip). Other than that, it fit great, and I loved the vivid blue and the pussy bow at the neck.
The skirt is a nice pinky-red - I believe they are calling this "cherry" this fall. According to the little tear-out insert in my June InStyle, cherry goes with pewter, camel, heather grey and "wild card pairing" of plum. However, if I go look up the blue section, "bright blue" (really? that's the name?) goes with teal, charcoal, mustard and "wild card pairing"...cherry! Who's the clever one now, eh?

*ahem* Anyway, I last wore this skirt here on Easter Monday with crazy pink plaid and cherry shoes.

The stuff:
I like my shapes to all echo each other - of course, I had to wear these blue shoes with the round studs on them! It's been a while since I wore them to work too. I last wore them here (2nd outfit) for L's birthday with a little black dress.

Round bling:
My favourite ring.

Blouse (no label, vintage 80s), skirt (Precis Petites, thrifted), shoes (Garden of Enjoyment Rita, Fluevog), earrings (Aldo Accessories), ring (Wendy Brandes).

Very, very pretty new vintage top - and the price was quite amazing.
I like the edginess of the shoes worn with a top from another era...
