The weekend went so fast! It was very relaxing and chill, but I seriously need more time off! Ah well.
So, I'm playing around with more shapes this week, and seeing if there's something usable or workable on my body. Today, fitted, cropped and poufy.
Following on my not-as-successful-as-I'd-hoped cropped over full look of last week (this outfit), I've tweaked it and am trying again.
here in late January with blurry florals), but a closer fit to the body instead of a boxy shape. Slim-fitting thin copper sweater (first seen here in January with a Dior-ish circle skirt).
Pouf-o-matic skirt! I liked the pouf versus the slim-fitting top and jacket. What do you think?
here). It felt a wee bit short (but heck, I like my legs, so why not) but was mitigated by the pockets. I do have sheer micro-fishnets on, so not bare legs.
here with a rampant lion), but they are keepers.
Big barnyard bling:
Jacket (Danier Couture, consignment), sweater (Main Fung, thrifted), skirt (Quillaree, consignment), shoes (Ramon Tenza, thrifted), necklace (consignment), Death Star Ring (Stone Roses), spinner ring (Twang & Pearl), earrings (Aldo Accessories).
Last night, L, Elaine and I watched the Oscars. I want more gown action on the red carpet. Stop talking to Sidney Poitier and show me that crazy dress in the background. Um, I digress.
Elaine brought over this amazing vintage suede skirt for me:
I managed to snag a picture of Vizzini on Saturday while I was writing my big wrap-up post:
|"I love you, purr purr purr."|
On Saturday night, L and I hung out and drank wine and played board games. Vizzini deigned to snooze near us.
|"Let a cat nap in peace."|
Aww, Vizzini is so cute!ReplyDelete
I like the fitted top with the more voluminous skirt, that is a great length on your amazing legs! :)
I like both looks with the leather jacket--but then I love little leather jackets! The two skirts are so different in style. You pull off both well! This new one is very spring-y in mood, isn't it!ReplyDelete
Love the shoes too.
Sweet-faced boy! Lucky boy too, like my King, so well-loved. Your skirt looks great and the elephant necklace is among my favorite pieces. xoxReplyDelete
I really like the warm, golden neutral tones on you, Sheila, and you always look great and completely put-together. And yes, you do have awesome legs! Since you asked for opinions (I wouldn't presume otherwise), I have to confess I'm not 100% sold on the pouffy skirt... I'm trying to work out why not, and I think it's because it doesn't do justice to your fabulous hourglass figure like a more closely fitted style does. But hey, just my opinion, feel free to disagree! And of course it's always good to mix it up and experiment. The vintage suede skirt is fabulous, right up your alley, and ahhh, Vizzini in lovey-dovey mode, so cute! xxxReplyDelete
Aww, I love the last picture - he just looks so darn sweet!! Pat him for me!ReplyDelete
I love the color mix of this, even though they're basically neutrals. The copper and cream is especially snazzy together. I think the skirt could do with a few extra inches for a longer line, but you've got the gams, so flaunt them!ReplyDelete
That necklace must represent a circus farm or a small dairy in Tanzania! It's cool, so no explanation necessary.
The outfit looks great and you have great legs so a short skirt is just fine. I feel very cold looking at all that exposed leg though! I'm not ready to give up on the tights yet. LOVE the shoes and I always love your jewelry!ReplyDelete
It's so weird reading familiar blogs on unfamiliar computer monitors -- I'm temporarily sidelined from the gym (mostly due to hunger) so I'm browsing blogs on my lunch break. Vizzini's eyes and your glasses are really popping in fabulous ways!ReplyDelete
That is such a cute skirt, I love the shape and I just love the shoes!ReplyDelete
I love all the items you are wearing however not so much together… btw you have some amazing legs woman!ReplyDelete
