Oct 29th - Outfit #28 - Hello, Weenie

And the month is winding down...only one more outfit before my Hallowe'en costume! 
I went full-on October theme for today: orange and brown! I felt very visible, so rock on over to Visible Monday at Patti's "Not Dead Yet Style."

This is my orange velvet blazer, which I last wore here, also on a Monday. It must be a "fake it till you feel it" jacket, good for perking up one's mood on a dull grey autumn day.

I last wore this brown skirt here with a throat full of swallows.
And last but not least, these awesome Fluevog booties were last seen here as part of my steampunk vampire slayer costume.

I hope everyone on the east coast is keeping themselves out of the storm's way - thinking of you guys!

Jacket (Jackpot, consignment), skirt (Liz Claiborne, thrifted), boots (Babycakes Minis, Fluevogs), belt (Club Monaco), mink pin (consignment).

  1. I love your attitude - fake it till you feel it. I hope you felt it later. This mantra usually works for me too. Gorgeous.

  2. Hi Sheila, I am popping over from Visible Monday, and I can't stop drooling over your Fluevog boots. I had a pair of Fluevog clogs back in the mid seventies. Sure wish I'd kept them now. Why the title Weenie, if I might ask?

    1. Hi, Sue! Thanks for visiting me! The title is a pun on "Hallowe'en-y" = hello, weenie, as in I'm looking Hallowe'en-ish.

  5. You definitely perked up my mood on this cold, windy, dreary day. That jacket is a lovely central piece. I love how you let it shine by wearing beautiful darker colors with it.

  10. Ah glad you explained the tite, I am so slow. A great spicy colour combination today. I still think you are Honorary Autumn, as you look so good in orange, and green and rust....

  11. Look at you! I like the textures and silhouette with your boots so much. Meant to say last week how much I enjoyed the steampunk version of yourself. So much fun!
