  • Slim, 60's knit sheath dress from Regal Vintage. It is emerald green, probably a poly-blend, and textured in what is sort or a mini-cable knit. It has fitted bracelet sleeves, a short funnel neck, and a seam above the bust. It is fitted but not tight, skimming the body, and un-waisted. The hem hits me just below the knee.

  • I scattered bright, pressed tin insect pins from Japan across the right shoulder (with one stray one pinned at the left neckline). I bought them ages ago form a shop that used to be in Univ. of Pennsylvania's International student housing building (for all I know, it might still be there), that was a splendid resource for tchotchkes and small, interesting gifts form around the world.
  • Shiny ribbed grey tights form Simply Vera

  • Russet Fluevog Rubini boot
  • 1950's faceted tangerine glass button clip on earrings from a haberdasher's-slash-vintage jewelry shop in Albuquerque. I can't think of the name, and they are not online, but they are delightful - on the main shopping strip in the hippest neighborhood (again, blanking on name but anyone in ABQ should know the area from that). They are right next to a bead shop, across the street and about a block up from Buffalo Exchange.

  • 1950's two tone, faux wood clamper bracelet, the original GlamaRuth's. This gets a lot of wear as it can go with almost anything

  • Carved purple plastic ring from Boston South End weekly, seasonal neighborhood craft market.
