Today's outfit features the last "fresh" item for this month: this cool crane cardigan:
I bought it on consignment in early July 2009, and first wore it here. If you click through on these "last worn" links below, you'll notice that although I tend to wear the same colours and clothing items with this over and over, there are a bunch of items in these links that I haven't put into capsules yet - and I still have them! Interesting.
I last wore it here in January 2012, just before I started this challenge! I've also previously worn it last December 2011 (I haven't put that skirt in a capsule yet), in May 2011 (with that awesome olive maxi skirt), in January 2011 (2nd outfit), here in Oct 2010 with an awesome houndstooth skirt (haven't seen that in a capsule either), in January 2010 (ooh, haven't worn those shoes yet - good picture of the embroidery on the back), and way back in July 2009 (my hair is so long!)
Instead of going with my predictable matchy shoes, I liked how the Fluevogs (last worn here, 2nd outfit) picked up the brown of the horses in the skirt's pattern.
I have a half-slip under this thin silk skirt - I was nice and warm while I walked to and from work (although my skirt did a full rotation - don't you hate that?). I last wore the skirt here.
I'm having fun rediscovering my outerwear. Behold, the Octo-Coat!

Cardigan (Lucky Brand, consignment), cami (Smart Set), skirt (Gap, thrifted), shoes (Mini Qtees, Fluevogs, consignment), rings (snake, vintage 80s; spider, gift from Mom & Dad, vintage 80s; lapis lazuli, Wendy Brandes, silver/red ring, Mexican, Oscar & Libby's), feather earrings (locally made), "S" charm (gift from Mom & Dad from England), key (found).
That sweater is an excellent match for the skirt. I'm still supremely impressed at how well your vogs go with everything.ReplyDelete
Beautiful outfit I love the sweater and I really love the skirt!! ~Looks great Love HeatherReplyDelete
I can see why you received compliments...ReplyDelete
your sweater makes a statement.
Loving your accent pieces today.
Sheila, you've seriously rocked that skirt. I just skimmed down your blog and saw how you've styled it three ways! And I love it because it's got a western theme!ReplyDelete
Love the detail on that top, it's beautiful :)ReplyDelete
I love when embellishments are extended over the whole garment - this sweater is so lovely, and wonderful with the farm skirt! Love that fresh green of your tank as well. This outfit and the one with your parachute skirt + flower are my favourites among the many great ways you've styled this sweater.ReplyDelete
P.S. skirt rotation - AARGH! "helper"-kitty - EEE!
I like the sweater! Anything with birds on it makes me super excited. I like re-discovering outerwear too, it's kind of fun.ReplyDelete
Hello little paw!!
I can't get over how perfectly suited the skirt is with that sweater. You have so many items in your wardrobe that go perfectly together. Like if an artist was planning a painting they would imagine this particular sweater and want to paint that very skirt to go with it.ReplyDelete
That sweater is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I love it everyway you have worn it!!ReplyDelete
Your amazing figure still shines through, Sheila - I don't think you surrendered anything. You find the most beautiful and unique items of clothing, and re-mix them so creatively and perfectly for you. Of course, I'm drooling all over those shoes :PReplyDelete
I was half-expecting to see a pinky ring on Vizzini's little paw!ReplyDelete
Does Vizzini perhaps need some bling too?ReplyDelete
That is such a beautiful jumper, it looks like it was made to be with that skirt. I always appreciate detailing on a piece xxReplyDelete
One fine day when you are ready to part with the crane sweater...I'll take it off your hands.ReplyDelete
I found a key just like that one too on the ground at a fair in 1990! I just didn't know what to do with it.ReplyDelete
