Oh, Friday, will you ever be here? I need my wine!
Today, I went sleeveless! Oh, how daring! How brave! How cold!
Not bad for a 45-year-old broad!
Anyway, let's move on - what am I wearing? It's my Smoking Lily navy corduroy dress (last seen here with some major ruffles), with my forest green Danier Leather suede top over it. I last wore the top here, underneath my embroidered velvet blazer.
Bizarrely (or not) in both of those past wears of these items, I wore these same boots! Maybe it's just because these are the most comfy boots ever. They are probably a pair I would travel with - great style and awesome comfort. I last wore them on Monday with my turquoise fringe skirt.
I'm finally wearing this new-to-me belt that I bought for $5 at the vintage fair back in the fall.
Ms. Helga von Trollop is wearing a necklace very similar to this today! If you don't know Helga, you should - you think I do colour? No, she is the Maven of Colour.
Showing off my Scottish ring, my Wendy Brandes ring and my vintage 80s snake ring, which I did not wear on my thumb (it's hard to take a picture of both hands!).
Top (Danier Leather, thrifted), dress (Smoking Lily, consignment), boots (Gabor), belt (thrifted).
I was treated to a display of cuteness this morning:
|"You can't see me! I'm Camo Kitty!"|
|"Rub my tummy!"|
Is the furled collar on the dress? If so, it's so perfect! I also love your belt. That's a total steal. I've been loving the metal belt look myself.ReplyDelete
Hello, kitty! I swear I'd never get anything done if I had a kitty at home. I'd spend too much time kitty cuddling.
Yes, it's the ruffled neck of the dress!Delete
So great to feel good about having some muscle tone. I need to work more on my arms...but honestly I hate working them the most. Probably that's why I need it the most.ReplyDelete
I love the colours and fabrics here.
You look awesome sleeveless - reminds me of a certain North American First Lady! Must rub the tummy before you go to work, it is the law : >ReplyDelete
Really like the green and navy together, and with that belt :)ReplyDelete
Vizzini is adorable too - I would have stopped to give him a good tummy rub as well!
You ARE brave to bare arms in winter, Sheila! But then you have great arms, so why not? Love the little ruffle collar and the peek of petticoat (mine is showing today too!) and that fabulous belt.ReplyDelete
Vizzini is too cute camouflaged on the rug (and so like my b/w girl Minnie).
Ahh, Helga is the Queen of Colour, isn't she wonderful?
Enjoy your wine this evening! xxx
Ooh I am cold just looking at you! You look fabulous, but brr! It's too cold here for sleeveless!ReplyDelete
LOL Vizzini!! He sure does blend in with that rug!!
You are a brave woman in this cold but you look FABULOUS!! check out those arms!!ReplyDelete
Helga is definitely the queen of color!! She rocks it!
Curtise beat me to it, I'm loving the collar, belt, and lace-edged slip as punctuation to this gorgeous ensemble. How fabulous to be feeling strong!ReplyDelete
Who has a nice belly? WHO does? Who is furry and stretched out so long? :)
Is it Vizzini?Delete
It's VIZZINI!!! Oooh, pat-pat-pat-scritchy-scritch!Delete
I love that sleeveless vest with that amazing skirt. That is so lovely. You cat is gorgeous too!ReplyDelete
It's a dress, not a skirt, Marla! :)Delete
Glad you got your arms out and you are proud of them (down with people being self-critical, I say), but Sheila - bbrrrrr!ReplyDelete
Girl power rocks!ReplyDelete
Seriously, you didn't have to cheat and get a sweater during the day? I love sleeveless, but it's been soooooo cold recently.
