Worky-Work, Busy Bee

Monday again! This calls for a Serious Work Outfit:
Nothing new to see here, all repeats. The cardi was last seen here, the vintage blouse was last seen here, the lace skirt was last worn here.

The outside shot:
I love these shoes - they're so...prim and proper. So unlike me! I last wore them here.

The stuff:
Such awesome shoes.

The mink brooch:
I bought it a few years ago in a thrift shop with my mother-in-law.

Cardigan (Kersh), blouse (vintage, handmade, thrifted), skirt (Planet), shoes (Steve Madden, thrifted), belt (Plum), brooch (vintage, thrifted), pearl earrings (Aldo Accessories).

I also did another outfit this past weekend:
It's not much of an outfit; just my black sack dress (last seen here) and some sandals, and a few charms on a chain. I went thrifting with Lesley from work (yo!), and wanted to be nice and comfortable.

I did get my gold medal finally!
That's from the race I did in May (talked about it here). Yay!

Dress (Max Studio), sandals (La Canadienne, consignment).


  1. Greens and browns paired together are my favourite combination this summer!

    And yay for thrifting - especially with new work people! I'm restraining myself these days.

  2. I love the outfit with the green cardigan--vavavoom! If you ever get tired of those shoes, you know where to send them!

  3. I'm tired of always saying "I love them all"... but "I love them all"!! I can't even choose which one is better!! You give me a hard time to come up with original comments each time!! Congrats on the medal! (very stylish medal by the way). Hugs :)

  4. You are such a great role model for professional women...thanks for showing how you can use pieces we have seen before to put together new looks!! Fabulous!

  5. There's no fashion accessory more attractive than a medal! Congrats, buddy.

  6. The lace skirt is so flattering, love it with the cardi. And I've never seen a mink brooch before (I must live in Hooterville!) It is splendid. As always, you put a smile on my face : >

  7. That vibrant green cardigan makes me deeply happy.

  8. Green and leopard! Love it.The mink 'flower' is awesome. Congrats on the medal!!

  9. I love this colour combo on you...and those shoes are perfect!

    Also, congratulations on the medal Sheila! You could accessorise it into the green and brown combination perfectly!

  10. Thanks, Cara - it's a great combo. Thrifting is so fun - it allows me to shop to my heart's content and not break the bank.

    Laniza, thank you so much - ha, I will remember that!

    Dimi, aw, you are so sweet. Thank you!

    Pam, thank you - that means a lot to me.

    Ally, thank you!

    Patti, thanks so much. I bought the brooch because it reminded me of one I had as a kid (my grandmother gave it to me).

    Sal, thank you! Me too. :)

    Megan, thank you!

    Mervat, so lovely to see you - thank you!

  11. I know this is crazy, but I really like the casual black dress look. It's breezy and fun and I love the sandals.

  12. Kristen, not crazy at all - I love this casual look.
