Pale Grey , Now Vintage Sunnies

Wearing pale grey, the same colour as the sky today as the long awaited summer rain is soon to pelt down.
I have had this drapey top for some time ,not sure if the colour or shape are really me maybe it is time for it to go to a new home.

These sunglasses are by Fendi and were bought in the early eighties, making them older than my now grown children.I guess in some circles these are classified as vintage.
Both the silver flower necklace and cuff were gifts.

Raffy decided he had to get in on the action, such a scene stealer. Glad this was taken early in the day,
wet gardens and white dogs do not mix. The result a black and white dog in much need of a bath.

Even though it is really Visible Wednesday for me.

    Raffy thinks you look great in that top so don't get rid of it.Love those funky shaped sunnies. I don't think I own anything older than my kids that I can think of right off the top of my head. They were born in the 80's too.

    The magical power of glasses amuses me always. It is amazing how differently framed glasses can change the look of the person wearing them. This wonderful vintage sunglasses add some edginess to your look today, love it.

    Your choice of jewelry pieces is great! Love these funky glasses too. I like your top, and I wonder whether you'll decide to leave it. You styled it gorgeously! It's difficult for me to get rid of my clothes, for some reason, even if I don't wear it often. I need to clean up my closet though, why keep things I don't wear? Hmm. Enjoy your gorgeous garden, your cute doggy and your week, dear Jill! xxx

    Those sunglasses are a 50's frame that has become a classic! I love them… I have a similar pair, bought some years ago, which reproduce that style…Funny conclusion of your post! Having myself a dog , I know the risks of mixing dogs and wet gardens!! I hope Raffy won't mind too much the bath …
