Today was an odd Monday. I felt like a pirate all day, yar!
|I've got my ruffles, my frock coat and my boots! Avast, me hearties!|
There are a few things in my closet that I won't be putting out for a vote because they are completely awesome, and this frock coat is one of them. I got it at Dots as a sample piece for $56.00 (regular $375.00). It's by Noa Noa and is 100% cotton.
I've had it since spring 2010, but I didn't wear it until Hallowe'en 2010 (check out my contest-winning Mad Hatter costume). Yes, it is a bit costume-y but I've worked it a few times for work, here in March 2011, and here in November 2011 (where I actually converted it into a steampunk type of outfit). I also wore it just before the 2012/13 Capsule Challenge started, in January 2012. The last time was for the Steampunk Convention in April 2012, in the favourite Wild Card outfit.
But hey! There's the burgundy skirt again!

I LOVE the frock coat...I'd love to have one of those myself! And it works beautifully with the burgundy skirt.ReplyDelete

Yes - the frock coat is a forever YES! Love this look, with the shorter boots and suede skirt. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.ReplyDelete
Awesome jacket! Sometimes even difficult to style pieces are worth hanging onto. Quality and uniqueness is worth it. I vote for keeping everything here! It's all very you.ReplyDelete
Also I'm super jealous of your blonde hair! It looks so cool.
That coat is amazing! If I had one, I would be wearing it every day until I went cross-eyed.ReplyDelete

Another keep vote for the skirt from me! I really like the layering in this outfit too :)ReplyDelete

Love your coat - it is so fun and very you! I like the look of it with the shorter skirt too. Very nice!ReplyDelete
OMG that jacket is something out of my dreams! How have I missed it on your blog. I must troll your archives more thoroughly.ReplyDelete
I misread and thought it was "gutsy pirate" - who's she been sparring with, I thought?!ReplyDelete
Wind is easier to deal with than a fight, so that's good! The jacket is fabulous, especially that delicious embroidery at the back. I agree with Megan, it's good to have those amazing unique pieces which can be brought out to give an outfit the wow factor. xxx
You always manage to reference period without looking costumey. That's one hell of a working personal style, Sheila. Has to be your personal confidence. Or the fact that you have excellent taste and an eye for quality. Whatever ... looking fierce, young lady!ReplyDelete
That coat is amazing! I'd totally steal it if I could :)ReplyDelete

Love your pirate outfit--that blouse has been a great piece!!
This may not be based upon completely scientific data, but your readers seem to like all of your clothes, so I can't believe we're much help to editing your closet :)ReplyDelete
You remind of Johnny Depp today. This is one of the biggest compliments I have! He is always so freakin' edgy and cool.
