Mar 9th - Outfit #8 - Put on Your Red Shoes and Dance the Blues

Happy Friday, everyone! I don't know about you, but I'm really happy that the weekend is here. I might have time for a nap tonight, before we go to the Art Gallery.

Today's outfit features all fresh capsule items:
Another dress, this Loft one that I've worn once previously here (3rd outfit down). This jacket is a Smoking Lily piece; I've had it since last April - I only paid $26 for it on consignment. I last wore it here. The gauzy skirt under the dress isn't a capsule piece; it's sheer all the way up, so I only ever wear it as a layering piece.

I love those tights. If I ever see another pair like that, I'm going to buy them.

I really love the good stretch this jacket has.
Totally comfortable to wear.

Today was a crazy day, but I had some nice moments on the fashion front: one of my coworkers gave me a nice compliment, as did the service guy for our shredder bins. I linked them both up, so hi, Sam and Sapili!

Didn't quite make the "new" pose this time.
Stand up straight, Sheila! Shoulders back!

Aren't the labels on this jacket lovely? They make me think of hearts.
My silly fabric flower.

The stuff:
Another pair of Fluevogs. These are my Teapot Senchas. I'm tickled that Megan over at The Fashionable Bureaucrat has the same ones in black

The stuff:
Simple dangly cheapy sparkly earrings and my Wendy B ring.

Have a great weekend!

Jacket (Smoking Lily, consignment), dress (Ann Taylor Loft, thrifted), underskirt (Noa Noa), shoes (Teapot Sencha Fluevogs), flower (Roberta's Hats), earrings (Jacob), ring (Wendy Brandes).


  1. Love all your smoking lily pieces. Is there a design on the back or silk screen on the inside?

    I love the addition of the layered skirt. I hope I can get a couple more layered looks in before it gets too warm. Doesn't seem like much longer before spring will be in full swing.

    Oh! Also you made me go look at my own poses. Apparently I've been subconsciously picking the same pose where I tilt one knee in and awkwardly do nothing with my hands. >.< Oi!

  2. Love that dress with the sheer skirt poking out the bottom, it's lovely :)

  3. I love the underskirt! And the shoes! Catching up on your posts backwards...

  4. Great colour combo and fabulous shoes! I really like the cuffs on the jacket - makes it very unique.

  5. Yes, like Terri I love that underskirt. You are the best Smoking Lily scout! Excellent local label, great scores. You look beautiful!

  6. David Bowie!! Love that song--such an awesome bass line!!!
    Love the outfit!!

  7. I know, I know, I'm the worst commenter you have. :(
    I'm really sorry! Nonetheless, I'm sending an award your way - because I am still reading every single one of your posts!!! :)

  8. Those tights. Those Fluevogs. Which I'd never heard of until you, Megan Mae, and The Dashing Eccentric. And which now I'll dream about - happily :)
