I'm still on Monday's colour, teal. I'd probably call this cerulean, hot blue, or turquoise - my idea of teal has more green and brown in it - but I'm also calling it "close enough" for Fashion Challenge purposes. You will be seeing plenty of "close enough" colours here this week.
|scarf: gift form The Divine Aunt M, last worn here, see also here|
coat: Point Zero, local discount / overstock store (off-season score couple years ago, $35)
sleeveless grey shift dress: Joe Fresh
grey/black mini checkerboard tights: Calvin Klein, outlet store
shoes: Fluevog Mini Dollface, last worn here
Bell sleeves make me so happy.
Why don't more garments have them?
|cracking up - couldn't decide what to do with my hands as the timer ran out|
I also love this coat because a couple of layers fit underneath. The construction is exceptional - except for the buttons pulling hard on the woven fabric.
|wrist stuff: detailed here|
I've got thread and backer buttons ready to go and have promise-promise-promised myself to attend to it before I wear it again, but my mending pile and I - well, I guess we do see about eye to eye, given how tall it is. Hmm.
|jacket: George, thrifted (shh, I know)|
Not one of my body's preferred silhouettes, but I do not care about 'figure flattery' every day, and the last thing this outfit needs is a belt. I like this dress a lot - it's lined heavyweight stretchy jersey, super-comfy, and well-seamed.
|necklace: thrifted bracelets, likely a necklace to begin with, DIY re-strung|
Stay tuned for a fall colour-themed post pile-up! In the meantime, check out the other participants who have their acts way more together and are already on the correct day. Big love to my new (AND less-new) readers, followers, and commenters - y'all turn a tough and scary lady right into melty mush.
