I've got one hand in my pocket

I've never worn either of these pieces before. I got the 60's shift dress at a tiny church run op shop for $3 back in Feb. It had strange inbuilt bra cups which I cut out. I wasn't sure if the colours were really me, but I do adore navy so I went for it. The jacket is a brushed cotton fabric from Christchurch in New Zealand. I bought it at an op shop with Queen Helga last year. It has two pockets and a tie waist. Ir could probably be worn as a dress if I could do up the buttons. I think the real reason I put this outfit together was because of my new granny shoes. I found them last week at Salvos for $4. Full leather & never worn before with a dainty heel. I know they aren't to everyone's taste being rather 80 year old lady style, but I love them.
Oh how I love being all matchy-matchy.
