One of my closest friends lives so far away! Right across the border in Buffalo, I am blessed to have a friend who travels into Toronto often to hang out. This one random Saturday, said friend Tom managed to get me out during my busy schedule for “a dinner with a bunch of church friends”. Turns out it was a fundraiser event held at one of our churches! I was a little surprised, but had a great time with a great friend.
I wore a super summer and colourful chevron-print dress with jeweled embelished neck line. It has a slight empire waist and paired it with a crochet bolero. I bought the dress on a shopping trip into the states a few years ago from Burlington Coat Factory for $20.
A green little purse turned into a wristlet holds all my necessities for the night.
I had gotten these lucite wedge mary jane heels from Burlington Coat factory for $25 during my high school years and went through a long time of hating them and wanting to sell them until I saw how prominent lucite was during the mid century and with vintage-dressing gals. I had to put them to good use. The patent yellow catches the dresses’ colours and mind you, they were comfortable too! I think I will have to get more usage out of these heels.
Some very simple gold jewellery to keep the look focused on the dress and a homemade hair flower as my signature..
It turned out to be a good surprise with a purpose thanks to a perfect friend xx
