First of all, check out this awesome sketch of me! This is from the lovely Anne of SpyGirl, who's so very talented and generous!
She drew/painted my Friday outfit, seen here - love it! Thank you so much, Anne!
This is another depiction of me or my clothes that I've received from readers/bloggers/friends over the years. The last was the drawing by Mary Walker from one of last summer's outfits, and I've been the subject of drawings/doodles from Megan Mae: this one last year for my birthday, this one in August 2011, and of course the one that is in all my inside photos, of me and my dear old Inigo, who we lost just a year ago. I know that one was also a birthday present, because Inigo has a party hat on.
Today, I wore two new-to-me and not-yet-worn pieces.here in January 2013 for $13.50. I layered a bright purple cami under it - I really liked how the rusty-brick shade of the sweater popped against the purple.
The shots indoors were murky due to copious amounts of rain this morning - this sweater is more red than it looks.
It's by Corey Lynn Calter and I bought it on consignment here in March for $22.98.
I love purple and reds together. Always have. I remember wearing purple and red together in high school in 1985.

More red bits to go with the reds and oranges in the skirt.
Sweater (Bandolino, thrifted), cami (InWear), skirt (Corey Lynn Calter, consignment), shoes (Friis and Co.), belt (Plum), ring (Oscar & Libby's), earrings (locally made).
Your Anne M Bray drawing is so spot on! I love it. I'm also thrilled to see the old pictures I've done and the one Mary Walker did too. You're a well-drawn lady, Sheila!ReplyDelete
You also put together some of the most magnificent color combinations, so I'm not surprised.
Cherry and purple, one of my fave combos as well. Incredible skirt! Watch out for that wind! Love this look.ReplyDelete
PS I had to mention how fantastic Anne's sketch is too. You are certainly runway material.ReplyDelete

Love the colors of that skirt, and the shoes are gorgeous! Wonderful combination!
You really are a master of colour combinations. I'm still trying to get out of my "matchy-matchy" rut. Love the skirt! Swirly to the max!ReplyDelete
I saw that drawing when Ally linked to her blog yesterday - what a great sketch of you! It's fantastic!ReplyDelete
Purple and red is a nice color combo, but not one I've tried much before.
What a fabulous outfit--and such a gorgeous color combo!! The purple does make the red tones pop!!
