One Thousand Posts

Not that it really means anything except that I have just kept on posting, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, but this is my 1,000th post since I started my blog way back in March 2008.

Wow, that's a lot of posts! Thanks to everyone who:
  • inspired me (you know who you are),
  • has ever commented,
  • reads, lurks or finds me from weird random Google searches.
You all rock, in the best way!

I had thoughts of doing a What I Learned From Blogging post or something like that, but I'm crampy, cranky and hungry, so I'm just going to post my outfit. Probably not my 1,000th outfit but close to it. Nothing really special either; just an outfit.

Here we go! The sweater is new-to-me, thrifted a few months ago and stashed away for cooler weather. I like the colour and the fit. It was all of $4.50:Although it's acrylic, it has very little wear (I alway check for pills under the arms), and acrylic is good for cold offices and chilly September mornings.

The skirt is also new-to-me, picked up last weekend:
It's another Danier Leather skirt, and was only $6.00 in a thrift store. You seldom see printed leather or suede, so the plaid really grabbed me.

The stuff:
My lovely cherry red Miz Mooz boots and the awesome necklace from Tina.

Here's a better look at the plaid print on the skirt:
Olive green printed over with darker green, and the shiny bits are a burgundy/purple (they look shiny in the 2nd picture above).

Here's to another 1,000!

Sweater (B.U.M. Equipment, thrifted), skirt (Danier Leather, thrifted), boots (Miz Mooz), necklace (gift from Tina).

  3. Wow, 1000 posts! Congratulations Sheila!

    This colour combination looks delicious on your colouring...and so perfect for your Autumn.

    Best wishes,

  4. Love the boots. You look great and have lots of personality.

  5. Congrats on your first thousand!! Thank you a thousand for turning me back on to thrifting, and sharing those wonderful kitty pics!

  6. Whoa! Congrats, Sheila! Though I'm not surprised. I'm coming up on 600 way too fast. Amazing how the days add up.

    Can I say I want to steal your outfit piece for piece? I love the color of the sweater, the PRINTED leather skirt (so cool!), and those lovely red Miz Mooz boots. I wish I had broke over and been bold getting them in red!

  7. Congratulations on reaching this milestone! I'm doing a cartwheel in your honor. And I'm very impressed with the printed leather skirt.

  8. Hurrah! Congrats, beautiful! And, of course, LOVE those boots. ;)

  9. Happy one thousand - that's quite an accomplishment! (I just passed 100, so you inspire me). That leather skirt is knocking me over (in the best way) -- I've never seen one and it's so cool. Happy Friday, fashion-lady!

  10. I just hit it will be along time to get to 1000...I understand what a commitment that is...congratulations! I also love the color of that sweater...very flattering.
    have a great weekend, Shelia!

  11. Congratulations on your 1000th post! That's awesome! Love, love, love your boots! The color is so pretty. Long time follower, first time commenter. I love your style.

  12. loving the subtle details on the boots- i would have grabbed the skirt too!!

  13. Congrats on your 1000th post! That takes dedication!! It must be interesting to look back in see how your style has change overt the years, that's one of the reason I started blogging :)

    Also in Loveloveloving your boots, the colour is fabulous! Love!

    And yes I'm a fellow Canadian, southern Ontario right here!!!

  14. Sheila, all your outfits are special - that's why I keep coming to your blog! You put so much thought and attention to what you wear, even on an ordinary day.

    Congradulations on 1000 posts and thank you for blogging!

  15. Love this post. Congratulations on the 1000! And that wine colour is definitely my favourite this fall, so those boots are perfection, in my eyes!

  16. It *is* worth noting. It *is* something to be proud of.

    When I first starting reading fashion blogs, yours stood out as the most frequently-updated. I've always admired your dedication to the forum. That you've done this over a span of years is even more impressive. I've seen so many blogs emerge, splash and then disappear. Most bloggers don't have the tenacity and will you have. I respect you for that, Sheila. Big-time.

  17. love those boots...they are gorgeous!!!

  18. Congrats on your thousandth post! What a milestone!
    I'm loving these boots. So fun!

  19. COngratulations on 1000! And those boots really are all-stars. Covet!

  20. Happy 1000 posts Sheila. I have to say, your jumper label made me smile - bum! What a child I am... :-)

  21. Sheila's first 1K!
    And I'm sorry, I can't resist this pun: You're a thoroughly modern "mille"...*groan* ;)
