This dress is jade green but looks more aqua. I started with a tee shirt under a basic jumper style dress, added socks and leggings, a cardigan and then a second skirt. The scarf is also wearable as a shawl....
Just like in this picture above, where I have not yet put on the second skirt and thus found that I felt a bit naked.
I am quite pleased with these arm thingies, which we can call gauntlets, arm warmers, fingerless gloves, or old tights which I cut up. The tights were thick cotton with a nice texture to them but would never stay up so I re-purposed them.
The next supposedly green ensemble was also a combination of blue-greens and black. As the owner of two black vests and a dark grey one, I could not quite decide which I liked better with this outfit and wore them each at various times during the day trying to decide. I must clarify that I wore them separately and did not at any time wear two vests.
I have officially recovered from my guilt about my wardrobe size and thrift shop habit and I shall tell you why. Thrift shopping is in my genetic makeup, I am quite certain. My parents have long done it and were also once very avid attenders of the weekly garage sales. The popularity of garage sales has dropped off and Mum and Dad don't attend them any more but they are just as, if not more so, addicted to thrift store shopping as I am and I think it is now possible that Dad has found more trousers at the thrift shops than I have skirts. Add that to his golf club finds and not only do I see that I cannot help having great thrift shopping skills, but clearly I am also not the only one with a full closet.
