I told you there would be more green things on the blog, didn’t I? When I first saw this dress at the thrift store, I hesitated because it has a polyester lining (why would you do that? Make a dress in cotton and line it with polyester, thus negating all the benefits of the cotton?), but then I saw that the lining can be removed quite easily, and well, you bet that I snapped it up right away. It’s pretty much the perfect dress for me – the length, the style, the color are all right up my alley. The only demerit is that it doesn’t have pockets, but well, you can’t have everything.
If there is one color I’m navigating toward this summer, it’s green. Maybe because it’s so hot that I can only deal with cool colors, or maybe it’s just because I didn’t have a lot of it in my closet, but thanks to thrift stores, I’ve been stocking up. These pants are just one of the green things I bought recently (trust me, you’ll see more.)
The outfit is simple, but I decided to have some fun with the accessories and add my ladybird pin to the embroideries on my top. The ladybirds do love the coriander flowers in our garden.
It’s Daenel’s turn to host SIA, and here is her pick for the inspiration:
This mixed-media piece is called “Number 453” by abstract expressionist Anne Ryan. Daenel picked it because she thinks we all need something soothing after the last few challenging weeks (true that). I think the fabric pieces at the center can be easily translated into an outfit, and I’m going to have to try hard not to bring out my blue jean culottes again. We’ll see…
Remember to send your outfits to Daenel (firstname.lastname@example.org) by next Tuesday, June 30th. Have fun!
