Oct 9th - Outfit #8 - The Actual B-Day

Happy Birthday to me! For those of you who thought you missed it, today is actually my birthday. Yee haw! I am 45. Yikes. 

Anyway, this is what I wore:
Green, green! This is my new-to-me green cashmere sweater by Daniel Bishop, that I bought in June (here, scroll down) for...oops, I forgot to write down the price. I'm going to say $32.00 - that seems about right for the Velvet Crease.

This is my green tweed skirt again, last seen here this past weekend, way down past the party pictures (woo woo!)
The shoes are ones I've had for a while, and I've worn them a lot! I got them in September 2009, and first wore them here, with a whack of accessories. They're by Seychelles, and they're sized wrong (they say 8, I'm a 9-9.5), so I bought them brand new at a consignment store for $45. A little on the high side, but hey, they were new!

I last wore them here in January 2012 (with one of my old-lady chic outfits), and also in July 2011 (2nd outfit, with zebra print!), May 2011 (with ruffles and pearls), January 2011 (with contrasting hosiery!), June 2011 (with a really cool blouse that I rarely wear anymore, aw), in April 2010 (stop! disco pose!), February 2010 (with some girly florals), December 2009 (with my green lame -that's lam-ay - skirt), and in October 2009 (with my mystery skirt).

The outerwear:
I didn't really need my leather jacket and a scarf - it was so nice and warm and sunny today!

The stuff:
All vintage, all different eras!

Sweater (Daniel Bishop, consignment), skirt (Precis Petite), shoes (Seychelles, consignment), green bracelet (vintage, early 60s, Mom's), earrings (vintage 50s), silver bracelet (Coro, vintage 70s, Mom's).

    I love that outfit, so quietly chic and beautifully toned. Can I steal "old-lady chic outfit"? 'cause I think I go there a lot...lol. I also loved that outfit :)

  9. Hi Sheila...Happy Birthday to you! 45 is nothing, girl! You look fab.
    I love this outfit. It looks classic and to me has a hint of MadMen. The shoes are so pretty! I just purchase a pair of Seychelles too at a consignment shop for $14.00. I love them, they are so comfy. How the heck do you pronounce the name?
