Yesterday, the lovely Lorinda and I met up for lunch and some thrift shopping again (last time was here). We had a good time, but my luck was off - or I've gotten very fussy about my shopping picks! Not sure, but it was still a good time. Thanks, Lorinda!here, 2nd outfit), the denim skirt (last worn here) and the cowboy boots for walking (last seen here, 2nd outfit).
The outfit without my yellow leather jacket:
But I like the bright yellow. This is what I had on most of the day.
Jacket (Danier Leather), top (Limited, consignment), skirt (Smart Set, consignment), boots (Two Roads, consignment), belt/buckle (Shi Studio), earrings (LA Express, 90s).
Here's my single purchase:
Someone else found it interesting too:
Ah, last day off! But at least this will be a short week!
I'm so bad - I totally forgot to link up to "Visible Monday" over at Patti's "Not Dead Yet Style"! Be sure to check out all the visible ladies!
Hope you've had a good holiday. I go through spells of being pretty picky in the thrifts myself, but I am as curious to see you in the skirt as the cat is. What month will you wear it?ReplyDelete
Probably in July or August, Terri!Delete
Such a cute photo of your cat. I love those boots and this color combination on you! It definitely grabbed me from your thumbnail in my blog roll.ReplyDelete
Love the paint splatter skirt!ReplyDelete
Perfect outfit for being out and about. I always adore that yellow jacket. It'll sure infuse your day with color.ReplyDelete
Love the painter's skirt! Such a fun print. Heehee Inigo thinks so too!
Er Vizzini! Oops. Complete brain fart there. Sorry, Sheila.ReplyDelete
No worries, sweetie. :)Delete
Ah Vizzini is so cute :)ReplyDelete
Good purchase - even if you did only find one thing it's really pretty :) I really like the yellow jacket with this outfit too, perfect :)
Skirt was a great find. Only 1, but what a fantastic pieceReplyDelete
I wish my cat was as interested in fashion. She just likes laying on top of my clothes.ReplyDelete
I have the same thrifting experiences - some days are diamonds, some days are stones. But this skirt is a diamond I think, can't wait to see it. Hi Vizzini, you curious cat!ReplyDelete
LOL kitty! My Pippin would be doing that too.ReplyDelete
LOVE your yellow jacket! What a happy and fun color!! Looking forward to seeing your new skirt in a future capsule!
I covet your yellow leather jacket! Sometimes it makes me happy when I only find on item when I'm out and about. Your skirt is truly a find.ReplyDelete
Normally, I hate yellow on me. But the way you mixed it, I even think I could wear it! Great combo. Visit me in Shabby Apple! http://stillblondeafteralltheseyears.com/2012/05/a-mothers-jewels-outfits-modeled-by-women-over-45/ReplyDelete
Sheila: That is a great skirt, and I can see that you can 'work' the beautiful colours with your tops, jewellery, shoes and bags. Like you, I sometimes have days when there is nothing calling my name. Aren't pleated skirts in for summer?ReplyDelete
After I asked that little question, I realized that you do not follow trends, but you tend to set trends.

I just adore that jacket!ReplyDelete
i love these colors together! that jacket is pretty amazing!ReplyDelete
Maybe you're being a little more choosy with your clothing as a result of your challenge! I've noticed I've become a lot more picky about my thrifting.ReplyDelete
