Birthday Week! Ribbon and Reptile

My birthday is this week (can you tell I like my birthday? it's not like this is a secret!), so I'm pulling out some of my very favourite clothes and shoes to wear for my week of celebration.
Hello, pasty-white legs!
Starting off: this gorgeous croc-stamped leather jacket, last seen here in September with blue and leather snakeskin.
Layered under that is my burnt orange shirt (last seen here in March with leather and turquoise).
The skirt is one of my very favourites - I wore it last in the January capsule (recap here). It was packed away with the fall/winter stuff, but I love the shape and the fabric.

The stuff:
I adore these shoes - so fun! I haven't worn them since March (here, also with this orange shirt!). They were heaven to wear all day today, since my feet were still sore from 8 hours in those gold sandals this weekend.

My new-to-me 50s/60s ring and a modern necklace that I've had for over 6 years.

Jacket (Danier Couture, consignment), blouse (Mexx, consignment), skirt (MNG by Mango, consignment), belt (Plum), necklace (Melanie Lynne), earrings (Aldo Accessories), ring (vintage).


  1. You look amazing in those colors! Love those 'Vogs.

  2. This skirt is one of my favorites on you!

  3. Such lovely colours in this outfit! Very autumnal. If that's a word, haha! :)

  4. Great colors for your ginger-iness! I love the shoes too.

  5. You should wear your favorite clothes for birthday week! I love the skirt!!

  6. Happy Birthday! Your orange-and-black colors are very appropriate to the season.

  7. You are the all-time Queen of Fabulous Foitwear!! You look amazing in orange--and is there something different with your hair?? It looks extra fabulous in this picture!!

    1. I put mousse in it and floofed it up. Thanks for noticing!

  8. Those colours are stunning on you, Sheila, and what a fabulous jacket. I'm liking that big ass pendant too! xxx

  9. Love the rich fall colours in your outfit, and those marvelous Fluevogs! I wanted to give you a head's up that you are next on the Yellow Skirt list, so hopefully the current holder will mail it to you in the next couple of weeks.

  10. I've missed that skirt! It's one of my favorites, too! Of yours, that is. It's such a lovely color.
