What I Actually Wore #0050

Serial #: 0050
Date: 20/10/2010
Weather: forecast 20°, a gorgeous spring day
Time Allowed: 10 minutes

I am working in the Department of Education for a couple of days, and when one has to cleared by security before one can enter the building, it seems to behove one to dress nicely.

It is a lovely morning, and I decide to wear an easy vintage 50s belted green silk dress bought from a vintage boutique in St Kilda. I was attracted by the print when I first saw it many years ago, and always receive compliments whenever I wear it.

However, this morning it turned out not to be so easy to find a jacket to wear with the dress. Nothing seemed to match. I finally went with a vintage 80s cream linen bolero style because the balloon sleeves fit nicely over the loose sleeves of the dress; both sets of sleeves are elbow-length. (It’s a trifle too yellow for the dress, so I have not included it in this photoshoot.)

The shoes are snakeskin – I pick those because their flecked pattern echoes the print of the dress. I look so respectable I make it through security without a hitch.
