I want to thank everyone for their help with regard to the previous post. I really do appreciate it-you guys are great. I know there's a lot of junk on the internet, but as a tool for bringing people together with similar interests, experiences, etc. it is a wonderful thing. I don't know how I survived before the internet.
Vintage Pendleton wool suit (I'd guess 80's by the jacket, shoulder pads, etc.)-Goodwill .99 cents! It was "colour of the week" tagged.
Gap blouse-Thrift World
Belt-Had it since the 80's (I think it was Outback Red but the stamping inside has long since worn away)
Brooch-Either Hand-Me-Ups or Et Cetera-I can't remember
Italian glass earrings-had them for ages
Beret-K Mart a few years ago
Fragrance-(I'm sure Mim guessed it) Caron En Avion (I had to with this outfit. I really should have gone all boots and goggles though. Next time)
The dress is a mauve-ish colour that really doesn't photograph well. It has considerable fading, though it already had that years ago when I purchased it. I'm not certain what colour it began life, but now it is a brown-grey-pink hue. It was originally purchased to be my wedding dress, but then I found a mauve taffeta number form the 50's that I wore instead. We had a courthouse wedding, so it really didn't require anything formal.
Say, what's this attractive nuisance? not me, silly, the bell! Don't worry, I didn't ring it-I don't want to get myself banned from Big Lots. I wonder how many times a day that button gets pushed by passersby?

The colour in this photo is closest to life. Some clothes are really tricky to photograph.

I'll leave you with a sneak peek at some fabric I brought home this week.
There's a few hours left to Sunday where I'm at. I hope you had a lovely weekend and that the following week treats you well.
