Purple and Olive and Lacy Legs

One more day of the year to go! How exciting! I wonder what 2014 will bring?
Colours are not quite true here - still dark out!
I do like to wear my new and new-to-me stuff as soon as I get it. Let's get that jacket into an outfit, stat!

This is the first outfit with my thrifted olive jacket (purchased here on the weekend). I really liked how it fit, and the great cut. I found two little buttons under the points of the collar, so I think this once had a detachable faux-fur collar. That would have been awesome.
"I don't want you to go! Stay home with me!"
Trust me, bub, I didn't want to get up at 6am either.

I layered the jacket over my purple lace dress, which was last seen way back in July here, with leopard legs.
The tights are pretty cool, aren't they? I do love a fun tight.

The stuff:
New shoes! Also purchased in the last week.

My Myka set:
So gorgeous. It's always worth it to have high-quality costume jewelry, in my opinion.

Jacket (Ron Leal, thrifted), dress (Jacob, thrifted), shoes (Gold Button), jewelry (Myka).


  1. Those printed tights are lovely, and I like the purple and olive together! :)

    Hope you have a happy new year!

  2. I am so in love with those tights!! This is a great look Shelia...something I would wear...the jacket is a perfect fit! Happy New Year!

  3. Agree with Wendy! And your whole look is great - it has a vintage vibe but fits perfectly for modern life.

  4. Oh, those tights are amazeballs. (That was the new word I learned this year.)

    I just realized that when I see the color of your blog (orange), I feel comforted. I associate it with warmth and style. Did you select it because it matches your hair-color?

    1. I have always liked oranges/yellows, and the pattern appealed to me - nothing to do with my hair!

  5. Ooh, gorgeous combination. I had no idea olive worked so well with purple. I am way into your comment about good costume jewelry. I'm trying to invest in a few pieces, myself. Your set is so lovely.

  6. That jacket looks awesome on you. And nothing like cool tights to add a spring to the step. I just want to hug Vizzini but he'd probably bat my face, claws extended. Happy New Year to you and L, and V of course.

  7. Sheila, you are a genius! Thank you for all the delight you've given me this year; let 2014 begin, and continue to get better all the time!
