Sorry for the blurry pic - I need to train dear hubby on blog photog-ing! We went out for dinner last night, and, in spite of having this 70s shawl for seven or so years (I showed it to you a while back), I took said shawl out for its first public outing ever last night. The days are gloriously warm here but the evenings are deliciously cool ... perfect for shawls and scarves. I also took the vintage purse I bought at auction in the UK out for its first dinner date.
I snapped the remaining pics in my hallway to give hubby a break - so sorry, you get to see the 'ole blogger-with-camera-showing-in-the-mirror thing. But seriously, we have these great big long and well-lighted hallways in our place, and all these closets with sliding mirrored doors - they were just screaming "amateur blogging photoshoot" to me!!
I'm also showing you never-seen-before Grunge Queen content, namely, this MEXX dress I thrifted at Goodwill years ago in Canada for $6.99 if memory serves, which I've worn only twice! I love the high-waist, pleats and girly flounce - this dress would rock on so many body types.
I bought this brass and wood (?) necklace, whose era I can't quite place (1940s?) at a Toronto garage sale for $25 a few years ago. It was a lot of cash for a garage sale find, but I've worn it heaps, and I just love it. I can glam it up with a dress, or rock it out with jeans and a stylish top.
I look cross-eyed here - maybe I'm just mesmerized by my "new" sandals, which are second-hand and actually purchased in France, yay! I found another vintage shop in the Old Town, which also sells accessories and home items made by local artists. They weren't cheap (49 Euros), but then again, nothing's cheap in Annecy, and besides which, they're in mint condition: black suede Ugg cork wedgie sandals, super super comfy, with the added bonus of being stylish AND having enough coverage to protect my poor little mashed up toes on my right foot, which I keep dislocating and which now look like wee French sausages as they're perpetually swollen!
Enough toe woes. I'm getting silly here, and wreaking the image of the glamourous fashion blogger that you must have of me! Time to get out there in the glorious sunshine and do some serious summer frolicking around the lake. Hope you all have a great day! Next time you see me, I will have hopefully learned how to do the auto-shoot on my hubby's camera!
