Purple Tigers and Periodontists

Just as L and I find out we've been battling the actual flu ("it's a nasty one," said the doctor at the walk-in clinic), here comes my every 6 month trip to the periodontist. Oh, YAY.
 Dressed for the occasion: Yellow for bravery, indigo blue velour for comfort (and KLASSINESS), and flats for not falling down afterwards with a face full of freezing.


  • Blouse - Guess, consignment, Sidney; last worn here in May for Jeans Week
  • Purple camisole - not tracked
  • Skirt - Sonia Rykiel, thrifted; first worn here in June with pink and stripes
  • Shoes - Karl Lagerfeld; last seen here (briefly in July for after-work shopping, but in an actual outfit here (2nd outfit) in May with yesterday's skirt


The day flew by, as I scrambled to deal with all the chaos at work, prep for tomorrow morning, eat my lunch and then leave at 1:30pm to catch my bus. I have to get there early for my "happy pill" to calm my anxiety about actually being at the freaking periodontist for 2 hours of tooth-scaling.
 I'm always frozen up to the gills/eyeballs too. That's starting to wear off...

There's a good shot of the purple tiger on my blouse. Rar!
 I loved wearing this soft skirt again - it's a nice length. Perfect for sitting in the dentist chair (they gave me a blanket, isn't that nice?).

It's all about the yellow. Don't look at the sick, tired, and mouth-sore lady!
 Happy overall with this outfit.

The stuff:
 Another good summer for these lovely leather flats.

Matchy bling:
 First wearing of this leather/metal cuff (which you can't even see in the pictures).


  • Cuff - thrifted for $5.95 here - first wearing
  • Amber ring - c. 1996
  • Amethyst/gold ring - Frances Jewellers, c. 1965, Dad's
  • Earrings - c. 1997?


Vizzini was hovering while I did my pictures this morning.
"You should just say home with me and nap."
A nap sounds like a fine idea, buddy! On my way!

  5. I like the purple and yellow together and I'm impressed you were able to pull yourself together to face the dentist even after being unwell! I got the flu this summer (start of the year) and it was HORRIBLE. Hope you recover from everything and get a good rest tonight!

  6. You look very beautiful in this wonderful combination of mustard and purple. The blouse is beautiful. What on earth are you doing going to the dentist while you are still sick? You look very stunning for a sick lady. Please take care of yourself!

  8. Sorry to hear that you guys have been struggling with flu - you must feel lousy! And then the dental visit too, just to add insult to injury! Poor you. Am back in the loop again trying to catch up with all my blogging friends so just wanted to say HI and I'll pop over again this weekend to catch up on more from you.

    Take care,

  9. Well you look so good Sheila, that I would have not guessed you had just overcome such a yucky flu.
    I have to go to the dentist too, I don´t mind going, but I am sooo busy that I have to find time.
