Simple and Comfy

Seeing as it's one of those weeks, I aimed for comfort today: dress and shoes, with a few accessories:
I swear there were shoes there a second ago! Inigo, you darned ham.

I love this stretchy dress. It's washable, flattering and easy. I've had it for a couple of years.

Okay, here's the shoes:
I think I've only worn these once since I got them (yup, ooh, not since March! Shameful!). Inigo just flopped right down as soon as he'd blocked one shot, little devil.

The stuff:
I was happy that nothing was overly matchy.The shoes are brown, forest green and grey, the bracelet is jade green, the cami is actually a teal, and the brooch is brown, orange and teal (with a big of emerald green and blue in there). And of course, all the good gold stuff.

A close-up:
Yup, that's stuff, all right.

Dress (Suzy Shier, consignment), cami (Smart Set), shoes (Firetrap, consignment), belt (vintage 60s, Mom's), bracelet (handmade gift from Cathy), brooch (The Bay), earrings (Foxy).


  1. I love these accessories the most! Sure would enjoy seeing how you manage to store them all...

  2. Love this look - and I'm going to have to get me some stretchy dresses. You look so chic, so if you feel comfy as well I'm there! *sets thrifting goggles to 'jersey dresses'*

  3. Love this outfit! I love brown clothing, it's really flattering on you. (Hi Inigo!)

  4. That peek of teal makes the whole outfit just pop. boo-tiful! and the cat has a classic cat attitude there, it's too much.

  5. Lovely as always, beautiful Sheila!

  6. Aw Inigo! I always love a cat appearance. Those shoes are fantastic - I love the shape of the heel - and the fit of that dress is perfection on you.

  7. I realized something:

    I think I've been checking out your blog lately for random cat posing...and for your retro jewellery!

    I hope Inigo doesn't let it go to his head. haha.

  8. Anonymous - you can check out the link to "My Jewelry Collection" under "My Fashion Stuff" in the sidebar. I've done an extensive look at how I store all my stuff. Thanks very much!

    Cat, thank you - they are absolutely essential. Thank you!

    Thanks, Iris!

    Faith, thank you!

    Thanks, Steph. Inigo is such a clown.

    Thank you, Sal!

    Sara, thank you! I know, I love that he sneaks in.

    Wendy, totally!

    red, thank you so much for commenting! Welcome. :) I love retro jewelry, and I love my kitty.

  9. Love browns and teals/blues together, and I adore that brooch!
