Aqua brows and dizzy tulle spirographing

Jazz Fest Day 2.


Yup, nothing like those crazy spirograph circles to get in the mood. 
And my aqua brows with bright lipstick, no eye products - a face in colourful parentheses.


I met so many great people downtown today. The music was unbelievable! 
This last photo catches my mood best.


Details:
  • ballerina dress, thrifted, vintage
  • graphic top worn over dress, thrifted
  • platform sandals, thrifted
  • silky accordion-pleat underskirt, thrifted
  • green beret, gift from gorgeous Ariane at Style Sud-Est
  • magic loupe and pendant, O made them for me
  • whale airship, from friend Monique of little lamp sculptures on Etsy
  • mechanical wristwatch (I seldom mention it although I always wear it), vintage, gift from O
  • tights, retail

That's all. This is my third post in three days. Extremely unusual. 
I'll be joining Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday with this. See you there.
Don't forget to email Shelley of Forest City Fashionista to get on the Freakish Yellow Skirt travel itinerary. 
Again, thanks, Shelley!

  5. You wear tulle beautifully, and happy to see it appear once again as your choice. Every piece in your ensemble, along with aqua brows, must have been harmonizing with the music. Your 'mood photo' is contagious!

  8. You are indeed prolific with prose these days. You're always welcome in my inbox! I had to google spirograph to be sure it was what I was thinking of....YUP! Another fond trip down memory lane. Countless hours creating....what? Colourful circles, that's what!

    Happy to hear you are enjoying JazzFest! Haven't partaken in the festivities for a few years, and with your endorsement, and seeing Herbie Hancock's handsome mug in The Sun...well, I'm definitely game for if not next weekend, next year!

  26. More and more I come to the conclusion that a tule skirt is absolutely necessary. As necessary as a demin jacket at least. Yours is wonderful, flattering, having the perfect length and, as I see, together with the psychedelic top it brings you lots of fun! Can any piece of cloth do it better?!

  27. Those sandals were thrifted? Someone made a huge mistake letting those go! Lovely!

  29. Spirograph circles, but without those annoying pin prick holes in the paper! Oh the joys of the 1960-70s childhood...
    You are a joy to behold, more than any Spirograph creation, with your aqua eyebrows, amazing shoes, and twirly whirlybird tulle. I am badly behind with commenting so am working backwards, you've been prolific of late, Mel! xxxx

  30. Ah! Turquoise eyebrows! I'm agog! And in awe. Could I do that? No...I'm too chicken. I still care that people will laugh.

    I adore this outfit and I think you look magical. Magic is you.

  31. I love the contradictions in this outfit bright mod circles and gentle soft ivory tulle, those woven platforms, the green hat....your a funky vision!
    Xxxooo

  32. HURRAY!! A glorious spirographic day!! (That was one of my most beloved toys!) The shoes make me very happy too. I'm going back up in a moment to take another look at your watch and necklace. :-)

    XXOO

  33. I just saw your brilliant co-post with Rosalind on Bella's blog. Wonderfully done! And I am so happy to have discovered a fearless, colorful person in the process.

    I've roughed up my tutu with denim jackets, but your spiro is inspired! It reminds me of mesmerized eyes as drawn in cartoons. xx

  35. Lovin' your constant reminder that when "it works" no questions should be asked, and whatever it is that "works" should just be enjoyed.
    You look like music!
    And how good to have your own, in-house jeweler. You're also wearing one of my favorite of your smiles!
    Have a great week.

  41. OMG, as I stroll through your old posts, I find myself entranced. You have great style. You approach fashion as art: creative and free.

    I like the energy of your outfits and the playfulness of many of them, like this one. I've worn tutus too and know how you feel, as an adult, putting one on. I think I'm hooked on your fashion exploration!
