A Bit of Red Lace

The main focus of this outfit is a hand-me-down top which I've had for over 10 years.  It's a cotton sweater which has short sleeves, so is not overly useful in our northern climate.  But, we are now in that sort of in-between weather so it is perfect.

It has a v-patterned piece down the front, so I hauled it out for the lace which is back in vogue.  It is also an orangey-red which looks a little more current than plain red.

The scarf is one of many that I got for a $ from a vintage shop which has since relocated; unfortunately they are no longer in the downtown area, so I can't pop in at lunchtime anymore.

The bracelet is from Big J's mom and are giant pearl beads with a sparkly flat bit.

The other news is now that summer is almost upon us, Big J and I are going to walk a lot more and we are trying to go on a high fibre, low fat diet. Perhaps I can lose another 5 pounds by summer's end!

  1. You must be talking about True Value Vintage? I loved that shop! And now it's utterly gone... So sad. You look great - and could you believe that sun today? Yay!

  3. I'm really diggin' the orangey-red color that's in right now.
    I wouldn't mind losing five pounds myself...preferably by the end of the month!

    1. Sheila: IKR? But no, it's supposed to stay off if it takes longer to lose.

  4. I can see why you kept the sweater - it's really pretty and suits you beautifully. Love the bracelet too.

    1. Hey Patti: Thanks! There were so many closet overhauls when I almost chucked it.
