Oh, Monday, there you are again.
I am in a closet-cleaning frame of mind these days. Time to shuffle out some "not quite" items. First up on the chopping block: this pink and orange satin jacket.
I have worn it a couple of times, both in the August 2012 capsule (recap here, and actual outfit here, with a yellow dress under it). It was an "on the fence" item then, and I've had since April (when I pulled out all my spring/summer stuff again) to wear it and I just...haven't. When I tried to put together a fun outfit with it, I fell back on the easy-peasy-est of outfits: black.
here (barely) for my father-in-law's funeral in June).
Jacket (La Fee, consignment), trousers (handmade, thrifted), shoes (Enzo Angiolini, thrifted), necklace (Bauxo), Death Star ring (Oscar & Libby's), crystal ring (Melanie Lynne), earrings (don't remember).
A very exciting box arrived at work for me today!

Look what was in it!
link - they are on sale! and they come in snakeskin! Linking 'cause I love).
I am in LOVE.
John's signature plus custom Fluevog buckles.
The sizing was bang on. I have bought anywhere from a size 8.5 (my Velazquez Baroque boots) to a size 10 (my Coffee shoes and boots, and my Adrian Agnes boots), although I'm usually a 9 or 9.5. I figured that with the adjustable straps that I'd be fine in a 9 - and I was right!
Ooh, I'm so excited to wear these...
Holy hot damn those shoes. Yeah, the pink jacket isn't a wow-er in my opinion - but those SHOES, those are wow.ReplyDelete
The jacket would look great with that shade of blue you hate, so I know I won't recommend it! Better out of closet, to make room for something you and the rest of your wardrobe loves!ReplyDelete
Sheeesh, the shoes are pretty awesome. Wish I spoiled myself to a new pair of shoes! (That's mostly a hint to my husband!)
Oh well, if the jacket isn't working for you, then time to move it along.ReplyDelete
The new shoes are rather amazing, aren't they? Great colour, and oh so very Sheila! xxxx
Beautiful new shoes, even better that they were on sale! :)ReplyDelete
Shame you aren't keeping the jacket, as it is a lovley piece, but you're right to get rid of it if it's not as practical or remixable as you'd like. I wish I could do the same with my closet!
I am weak with swoon for your new shoes! Damn, you have some fantastic shoes. Love your satin trousers too.ReplyDelete
The jackets really prety but if you don't LOVE it--adios!!ReplyDelete
OMG those SHOES!!! Wow Wow wow are they AWESOME!!!
Can't wait to see how you'll style them!
It's a very pretty shade of pink, but I can see how it would be hard to work with. If you don't love it, it's time to let it go!ReplyDelete
The shoes though - those are AMAZING. It appears even Vizzini thinks so!
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I can't wait to see those shoes on. Whooooo!ReplyDelete
Wow! Those shoes are absolutely gorgeous!!!!ReplyDelete
And for the jacket. I really like it. Beautiful and elegant. Pairing with jean for a more casual style or for an elegant style with your awesome satin trousers. But if it isn't working for you then you should get rid of it.
It's a lovely jacket but I can totally relate to having an orphan item just taking up space. I like to think that when I give items away someone else will wear the heck out of it!ReplyDelete
Your shoes. Your blue shoes are SPECTACULARRRRRRRR
