Sheila Fact: I have never had a drivers' license.
As noted, my birthday present to myself was buying a whole bunch of lovely Shi Studio designs when they had a big clearance a couple of weeks ago. They're a local studio and I love their designs, so I'm shamelessly pimping them. Please check them out and order a piece! Every item features a gorgeous piece of silk behind glass, and all leather is locally done as well.
Today's outfit was built around the choker:
I also decided that, screw "What Not to Wear" and their "no mini skirts after 35" rule - I want a mini! I thought that the dark tights helped keep it more modest, as did the cardi.
Okay, so the high-heeled gladiators maybe pushed it over the edge, but what the heck.
Yup, that's stuff, all right!
A close-up of the choker:
Cardigan (Express, thrifted), blouse (H&M), skirt (Jacob, consignment), belt (Jacob), tights (eh, don't remember), shoes (Listen Up "Ivanna", Fluevog), leather choker (Shi Studio).
Ummm if anyone could break that rule, it was you. You look HAWT!! :-)ReplyDelete
ooh. I love this look. Black tights are on my wish list.ReplyDelete
No driver's license? That is an interesting fact! I'll bet not many people would guess that if you were playing "two truths and a lie" or a similar game.ReplyDelete
I hope you have a wonderful birthday in Seattle with your husband. (And wow, it's Thanksgiving for you already? I can't believe it's that time! Happy Thanksgiving too.)
You look great in that skirt! Yes, screw "What Not to Wear" what do they know!!!You go GIRL..........
Have a great birthday!
She's Got Great Legs! If you got them, flaunt them :-)ReplyDelete
I agree about the dark tights and cardi - but I think the shoes are funky enough to keep it kooky and stylish rather than tarty. Great look.
Happy Birthday! And party all weekend!ReplyDelete
I love this look...and you totally rock that mini and those gladiators!ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday! Why not show some legs on the b-day. You look great!ReplyDelete
You look damn good! Have fun in Seattle! It's only a 3 hour drive from where I am :)ReplyDelete
By the way, forgot to say 'Happy Birthday'! Hope you have a great weekend a fantastic birthday :-)ReplyDelete
You should have taken a pic of you from behind, Sheila ;) lolReplyDelete

If you have great legs - why hide them?ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend.
I'm in favor of those shoes.ReplyDelete
Many Happy Birthdays toooo YOUUUUU! /lyn/ReplyDelete
You've definitely got the legs for a mini! And I relly like the orange/grey combo. I'll have to try that out.ReplyDelete
Bianca, thanks! I did feel a little self-conscious.ReplyDelete
Jan-nini - black tights are a basic for me! Thanks!
Yup, did my learner's once, Kari, but never the full deal. Thank you! We had a great time!
Thanks so much, Chris!
Ha, thank you, kiltsnquilts! Whew, I appreciate that - I'd rather be kooky!
Thanks, Sher! I did!
Thank you, watergirl!
Aw, thanks, Lain!
Oh, so close, K! We were just there barely 2 days.
No problem, kilts! :) Thank you!
Ruth, was it that bad? Ha! Thanks!
Aw, thank you, Jane! I had a great weekend.
Wendy, me too!
Thank you, Tina! It's actually more of a tomato red and a taupe.
You've got the gams to pull off that mini, for sure! Love the choker.ReplyDelete
My goodness...you look fantastic in that skirt, and give me hope that one day I too will rock a miniskirt and it won't matter a bit that I am (well) over 30!!ReplyDelete
Sherylyn, you are too kind. As I am well over 40, I know you can do it! Don't let a minor thing like age hold you back!ReplyDelete
