I have here some pics of my latest secondhand haul. It's been a couple of weeks and I was thirsty!
This red dress is very fine corduroy. Long and lean.
Great for my don't-touch-my-stomach grouchy days.
I will also wear this as a long line jacket.
(It doesn't count as another jacket in my jacket stuffed closet if it can be worn as a dress;-)
Here I've paired it with a linen jacket I had problems finding a use for. And it feels great with this. You just never know, do you!
Of course the shining jewel is this silk scarf. Made in Italy for Tie Rack. Stuck in a scarf bin with all the other polyester disasters. But my little fingers and eyes rooted it out.Very triumphant! Ha Ha!
I'm on a mission to fill my wardrobe with more natural fibres and more solid colours, since I've gone mad with fun prints, and now have nothing to wear as a foil.
So here is a linen shirt which fits beautifully. with a mandarin collar.
This is a hemp shirt which is gloriously soft with interesting splits in the sleeve ends.
This is a gorgeous colour blue rayon shirt.
This scoop necked dress is cotton. Navy blue see through, so will need a slip.
This scoop neck dress is fine knit black wool. Will be interesting to style this with my skin sensitivity to wool!
This suit I grabbed at the last minute for $8. It's beautifully handmade with lining. It fits the top with sleeves long enough!!!! The skirt will need to be taken in a smidge.
But the fabric is lovely. Maybe a little wool and silk? Will need to add colourful accents as this colour washes me out.
Interesting buttons too. The fabric colour is the same as the buttons as above.
Nice texture in the fabric. I'll feel very grown up in this!
And of course the piece de resistance, the silk scarf!
Very rich red and gold...mmm...mmm!
I do have a veeeeery slight love affair with silk.
This was $3. Oh yeah! Score!!
Hope you enjoyed my boasting post :-)
'Til next time, keep creating!
