Witchy Shoes, White Pleather Skirt

I had to wear this new-to-me skirt - I love the pouffy fullness of it.
Green-y blue with it, and we are ready for Monday.


  • Sweater - Dalkeith, vintage early 60s, thrifted; last seen here in January with spring-y pleats
  • Skirt - Astr, thrifted; purchased here last Friday for $16.50
  • Shoes - Esoteric Temptations Odette, Fluevog; last worn here in November 2016 with stained glass 
  • Leather trenchcoat (below) - vintage 70s, thrifted



It was busy in the morning, not so much in the afternoon. I enjoyed this swooshy skirt quite a bit.
Not a single comment on it, though, but I was happy with this outfit overall.

Another rainy morning means rainy gear: my leather trench and my bowler.
Danier fur scarf and leather gloves for the win.

The stuff:
These shoes are so witchy! Even the buckles have little skulls on them.

Silver bling:
And why not a beetle brooch?


  • Chaos rose steel ring - consignment (first wear, was $14.98)
  • Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop
  • Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
  • Brooch - Le Chateau
  • Earrings - Lazy Susan's

  1. I really love leather and faux leather with any kind of perforated design going on. I read recently that it's done with a Lazer process. I guess that means it can be done more economically because I'm seeing more of it!
    This outfit is relatively conservative except for the fact that the material of the skirt has that funky edge. Really cute Sheila!!

    1. Yes, they are laser-cut, which allows for very intricate designs. I've had bad luck in the past with a laser-cut skirt, though, so hoping this one will be less snaggy than my old one. Thanks so much!

  2. Like Marilee said I really like the perforated design giving the skirt a little edge - worn with the details on the buckles of your shoes too, it's little touches like that which make your outfits so special Sheila.

  4. Very pretty Sheila, the silhouette is fab, it´s got a vintage vibe to it.
    Oh and I'd like to see a close up of the fabric on that skirt.

    1. I think you caught the skirt fabric in the purchase post, correct? Thanks, Lorena!

  5. Your "witchy shoes" are so very witchy fabulous, Sheila. I love this little short sleeve jumper, I'm remembering I have a short sleeve (very old) jumper which I must bring to life again this winter, thanks for reminding me. xx

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth - they're tricky to style, but so cute. This sweater/jumper is VERY old, early 60s.

  6. The skirt length begs heels and these ain't just any old heels! Wow, they're something else, aren't they? A very feminine look today, and so what that the compliments were unspoken. You knew you looked good x

    1. Yes, I can be overwhelmed with a skirt this length without my trusty heels. These ones are so fun! Aw, thank you.
