In the Navy

I'm constantly drawn to anything navy lately. Maybe it's because it goes so well with green....and red....and orange. There's a bit of a navy theme going on with these op shop finds.

 One might think one set of navy & white beads would suffice??
But for me???? Nup.

  1. Great haul. I had a frock very similar to yours back in college. I used to wear it as part of my beatnik outfit.

  4. Navy is always a great buy, Miss V's right, it makes other others sing in a way black doesn't! The summery dress is lovely. x

  11. Funny, isn't it, how you decide you rather like a colour and then keep finding all sorts of things in that colour to add to your collection?! Love the frocks and the polka dot beads. I don't have much navy at all... Maybe I need to rectify that.
    PS. Gorgeous frock in your previous post. Trying desperately to catch up with everyone after our trip away! xxxxx

  12. I adore navy, after years of loathing it! I wear it quite a bit!
    I am crazy for the cardi, the scarf and the navy/white frock most of all, but what a grand haul of navy all up! Funny how one has a phase of picking up a certain colour! Happens to me a lot!

  14. Lovely! I've always been scared of navy - too sensible! conservative! grown up! - but our Helga has shown me the error of my ways and now I love it too!

    Can't wait to see you in the lovely chevron stripes!

  15. I love white and blue or white and navy. You have such a good eye for dresses - and white and blue beads!! You are right, different necklaces for different outfits.
