I think I’ve worn this outfit 2 or 3 times now. I really like the combination of colors and textures. I wore it to a Jeeves play at Taproot Theatre in Greenwood. That time I wore it with my Maison Martin Margiela for H&M shoes, which, turns out, kill my feet. I will reserve them for special occasions. Luckily, I found these vintage silver shoes at a thrift store, which are pair #3 in my growing collection of silver shoes. Silver is the perfect contrast to the dusty salmon color of my Dior blouse. As uncommon as this color is, I’ve been lucky to find a few items in it. I was actually wearing glasses in the same color when I stumbled upon it at an estate sale a couple weekends ago. Such a buy for $3!
The second event I wore this outfit to was the Tarboo pop-up shop on Capitol Hill (hipster central in Seattle). My friend’s partner is one half of this local design team, which is how I discovered them. It’s about time I start spreading the word: they make amazing and affordable bags. I’m getting a yellow tote bag for sure and plan to get a canvas rucksack in the very near future. If you’re interested in a bag, they’ve got a great deal on Gilt City right now, but it ends in 3 days, so you better hurry!
