Ah, another weekend nears its end - but I'm taking some time off starting next Friday, so this will be a short-ish week for me. But let's not waste time - I still have more Sunday to enjoy!
I always forget about my "soft" tops as they don't live in my closet. This one is by Talbots and it was bought on consignment a couple of years ago. Shockingly, I haven't worn it since the November 2012 30 for 30 capsule (recap here), in this outfit here. Hmmm...guess what's going into the giveaway pile?
here in September 2013 again to the Ulty field. I'm so predictable.
here (2nd outfit) in September 2013.
The earrings aren't in the stuff shot, as they bothered me - one of the servers at the diner admired them, so I gave them to her.
Top (Tabots, consignment), skirt (Cute Options), shoes (Kenneth Cole Reaction, consignment), cuff (Guess, thrifted), brown cuff (Hollyhawk, thrifted), belt (gift from Ruth).
After a solid nap, I got ready for Winesday.
Same outfit except for the sweater, which I last wore here in April with chartreuse and dragons.
And yes, I tried the "pomp" on my hair.
Sweater (Kenneth Cole Reaction, consignment), shoes (Air Walk, swapped).
Today, I was a wee bit under the weather (shall we say), and wore my crappy around-the-house clothes to go get groceries and do a little poke through the WIN Warehouse store. I had some great luck!
I've been looking for a really pretty dress shoe for a while - these caught my eye.
these 90s ones (now long gone) and have liked the quality. Eaton's department store (now also long gone) used to carry a lot of Sam & Libby.
These are black satin, with a small platform.
They were in very good condition:
I also found these awesome neutral metallic studded flats.
I don't know this brand.
link for info only), I see that their flat sandals start at $195.00. Wow.
Check out the little square heel!
I love how the leather is all wrapped and criss-crossed:
I guess I did pretty good for $8.50.
I've been looking around for nice evening/dressy bags lately.
And a bargain!
I continued my love for vintage slips with this gorgeous red one.
link for info only) Kayser Luxite lingerie was around from 1956 to 1966, so there's where these slips were born. They are in pretty good condition for being around 50 years old!
I liked these pink and purple leather feather earrings too.
I recognized these tights as being very high end, from the pattern.
And now, kitty pictures! Vizzini was chillin' on his post yesterday afternoon. Although it was overcast for most of the weekend, it was sunny intermittently, and warm out on the deck.
|"You're going out again, aren't you?"|
|"I'm thinking of what item of yours I will eat once you're gone."|
He is fond of the scritches between the ears:
|"Oh, yeah, right there..."|
|"That's the spot."|
I hope you're all having an awesome weekend!
I bet I could find Vizzini's special spot...OOOER!ReplyDelete
Loving the hair, darling! So soft and pretty!
I also love the idea of time off........got some coming up myself-HUZZAH!
Only YOU could make me fancy kakhi!!!
It was fun to see you out shopping this afternoon Sheila...you really do have the fashion gene.ReplyDelete
I came home with a pie plate and a Scotty glass! Love those vintage chemises...so chic.
Vizzini is so cute as always! Even if he does have a habit for taking bites out of items in your wardrobe! :)ReplyDelete
You got lots of great finds shopping! And I love that you tried that hairstyle, looks great on you! Hope you're feeling back to normal soon.
oh what a handsome man! I love your parachute skirt and your pomp, and I am a complete weakling when I see a vintage slip. Great find. xoxReplyDelete
You find the best stuff, Sheila. Love the red handbag, the glitzy flats and your parachute skirt!ReplyDelete
Happy Vizini! I love your parachute skirt and it looks so great with that black and white top and the strappy shoes I don't think you should get rid of that top! Love the Sam and LIbby shoes and the sliver studded flats! I am just so so so envious of the quality in your second hand shops. Those slips are beautiful! And finally, the pomp looks great. So cute on you! Definitely play with it again.ReplyDelete
Love the hair, Sheila! Both pairs of shoes are beautiful, and I'd have snapped up those vintage slips too, they are fabulous. xxxReplyDelete
