It's the weekend! I'm so happy it's here - it was such a long week for me, and I am now chillin' and watching football and hanging out with L. Boo, I am disappointed that my Panthers are out of the playoffs, but will be cheering on local team Seattle next week!
I pretty much let my hairdresser do whatever she wants with my hair; I tell her what I like and we play with it, but this time it's really short in the back.Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style - get yourself over there!
I have been looking at this jacket and thinking of getting rid of it, but I decided to give it another chance. I quite liked it with the narrowness of the pencil skirt. I last wore this jacket in the February 2013 capsule (recap here) where I wore it twice (last time here over a ruffled-necked dress). This makes it the third time I've worn it, and since I paid $30 on consignment for it, I'm down to $10 per wear.

The Unsafe Polar Bear coat!
here in December with one really ugly Christmas sweater.
I liked the little touch of red in this pendant.
Jacket (Not the Same Jeans, consignment), top (Mossimo, consignment), skirt (Ocean West, vintage 80s, consignment), shoes (Jeffrey Campbell), necklace (local, gift from L), earrings (local).
Yesterday, L and I went out for brunch.
One of my black leather shirts, last seen here in late December 2013 with one of my maxi skirts.
here in October 2013 with mismatched greens, blues and teals.

For the rain, I wore the Octo-Coat:
Dress (Eric Alexandre), suede shirt (True Character, thrifted), boots (Aldo, consignment), belt (Club Monaco, thrifted), necklace (gift from Tina), coat (Smoking Lily).
And the rest of my weekend has been nothing but football, and a little Arkham Horror! It's been quiet, which I've really needed. Ah...
By request this week, following my comment about putting together all my outfits for the week on Sunday, I'm going to address these questions from reader Ann:
Hi Sheila, can you talk a bit about how you plan your outfits? Do you have a dress form, or use hangers, or throw things on the bed? Do you right things down, or hang together? Could an unorganized person do this?
I'll be taking lots of pictures of my general process, as well as talking about how each specific outfit is planned. Check back tomorrow for the first post and a look at how my 5 outfits this week are selected.
