Oh, it's so late...I went out with Elaine for dinner and to see the 1957 classic movie "Funny Face" (IMDB link) starring Audrey Hepburn, on the big screen. I found it dated overall, but the dance sequences were fun and the Givenchy and Edith Head costumes were divine!
I wore my pointy-toed kitten heels in honour of Audrey.
This stripey top is one I wore twice in the June 2012 all neutral capsule (recap here). It's lovely and stretchy and I really like the neckline.
The skirt is new-to-me, thrifted back here in November 2012 for $36.98 at the Patch. It's by Danier Leather (of course), and is just so soft. It has really cool seams on the front and back that don't really show in these pictures (there's a better look at the link above).

Speaking of stuff, here's a better look at it all.

That's my Smoking Lily obi that I recently purchased. I adore the bright lemon yellow of it, and picked out the yellow in the flower pin, which I wore on one shoulder, and the little bee pin that I wore on the other shoulder. I didn't take a picture of it (running late this morning), but I wore my bright yellow leather jacket with this too.

So fresh! I loved seeing the yellow pop up on my screen. The skirt is a Sheila classic, of course I voted yea : >ReplyDelete
As a movie-lover, I knew about Edith Head and her many Oscars but, reading about her, I was surprised to learn she had no real fashion-training. Her style was self-taught and she was prized more for her efficiency than her designs.ReplyDelete
I wore yellow and gray also yesterday, with a bit of black, and it is one of my most favorite set of color combinations to work with. I love this outfit, everything about it. I wish I could get some of your wonderful Danier leather stuff locally myself!ReplyDelete
Love this!! i'll bet it looked FANTASTIC with the yellow jacket!!ReplyDelete
Yellow! I love how cheery yellow is. It's gray and awful here again today, so seeing this outfit totally perked me up!ReplyDelete
I've been making my way through some of Audrey's movies, I haven't seen Funny Face yet though.
Th skirt is very you, and I love the yellow bits and bobs to brighten everything up a tad! I think you are truly the Queen of leather/suede, Sheila! xxxReplyDelete
I love your patterned socks with the gray skirt! I'm a sucker for monochrome. But the yellow details up top are lovely, too.ReplyDelete
Hi Shelia, I love how you chose yellow to pop this look with..and the tights are really cool!!ReplyDelete
So spring-y and cheerful!ReplyDelete
Wowee! I love the entire combo. That blouse is perfect with the grey skirt and the yellow pops are perfect for this near-spring time. I'll admit, I've never seen an Audrey Hepburn movie... or pretty much any old classic. I'm not an old movie person.ReplyDelete
This is a really happy outfit and it makes me smile!ReplyDelete
That top is one of my favourite pieces of yours. That neckline is very flattering and I'm a sucker for stripes.ReplyDelete
Super awesome obi too!
