Happy October! This is my favourite month of the year (my birthday is coming!) and I've saved some of my most favourite things to wear this month.
So, let's get down to business (because it's 8pm, and I just got home from boot camp and I'm starving!).here last November, because I remembered wearing it with this cool skirt. I have a brown cami on under it here (not part of the capsule).
I'm linking up to Patti's "Visible Monday" at Not Dead Yet Style. Please do check out all the fabulous visible bloggers!
The skirt is new-to-me, thrifted back here in July for $14.50. It's 100% silk and is by the Gap. I am pretty sure it's well over 10-15 years old as it's a size 14.
But first, those are my Marc Softwalk boots, purchased last December (they were on sale for around $199). I wore them as part of my steampunk Wild Card outfits here in April, and also in late January 2012 here, just before I started this challenge. I am thrilled to be wearing them again - as the name implies, they are so soft to walk in!
Back to the bling:

Okay, here's my next participation happy fun thing: Break Out Your Party Dress! This Saturday, October 6th is my birthday party (my birthday is actually early next week) - all my friends will be there and there will be food, drinks and dancing. Everyone will be in their party clothes.
Well, it wouldn't be a party without all of you bloggers and readers, so please put on your best outfit, and send me a link or a picture no later than end of day Sunday, and I'll do a round-up after I've recovered from the party (heh). I want to see sparkles! Pretty shoes! Anything you think might be a bit too crazy? Not for my party!
Please join me: Break Out Your Party Dress!
Oooh love those boots! Calf-height boots have quickly become one of my new favorite things.ReplyDelete
I need to go figure out what to wear for your birthday party! So exciting. ;P I actually made you a little something, but you'll have to wait until your birthday before I post it.
So excited to see that skirt. What a find! It TOTALLY reminds me of sleeping bags... Looking forward to your party dress!ReplyDelete
Hi Sheila! Happy October! I always enjoy October as well. My husband's birthday is this month too! Love, love your cowboy fabric and belt. I remember the kind of sleeping bags you are talking about! Don't remember where I saw one, but have a memory of one from childhood as well.ReplyDelete
Ha - about the sleeping bag comment. You're right! But I love this skirt and one of my sleeping bags turned me green. I love how you mix up hard leather and sweet pattern. Lookin' good!ReplyDelete
Oh, goody! Thank you for inviting us to your party. Happy Birthday!ReplyDelete
Sheila, so much to comment on. First of all thanks for the invite to the birthday party. I've got a couple of things I've been dieing to wear and your party is the perfect excuse.ReplyDelete
The 'blinged out cowboy' look is too cool. I'm a huge fan of western, so I have nothing but love, love, love for this outfit!
Oooh Break Out your party dress sounds like fun! I'll need to have a good think, as I want to wear something appropriate to your virtual party round up!ReplyDelete
Like all of your accessories in today's outfit too :)
Oh yes, the sleeping bag! I think it made me scared. But this skirt is fabulous and so are the "Urban Western" accessories, esp that fab belt buckle. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday.ReplyDelete
Your skirt reminds me of my childhood, too. I grew up with horses, and my sister had everything horse print in her room, curtains, duvet cover, wallpaper, the works. Love it!ReplyDelete
Oh boy a party! And your birthday! And a fun party dress challenge. 'Cause I have, like, two :P
Oh how fun! I'll definitely throw something together for you! Love the idea!!ReplyDelete
The pattern on your skirt is too fun, even if it reminds you of a sleeping bag! I just picked up a vintage red cardigan and I'm excited to try styling it!
October is my favorite month, too!!ReplyDelete

Oh, Sheila, you look marvellous - fantastic skirt, and the bling shot is my favourite. Horseshoe nail ring, whoa!ReplyDelete
I'm so excited for your party, thanks for the invitation!
P.S. What "reassuring" imagery to line a sleeping bag with. I love the person who chose that. :)
Love this outfit. Your accessories are amazing!ReplyDelete
