Weekend Wrap Up: Ultimately Comfortable, Winesday Pomp, a Wee Shop and Mr. Lovey

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 wore this to the Ultimate field (I have my sportsbra on), and out to lunch afterwards.

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?
I love my parachute skirt! I've been wanting to wear it since I unpacked it in March. I last wore it here in September 2013 again to the Ulty field. I'm so predictable.
I like wearing a full skirt so that I can change into and out of my shorts. I prefer not to be in my workout clothes in public.

The stuff:
Heavenly comfortable shoes! I last wore them with long pewter leather 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.
The goal: be comfy and warm, and ready to walk to and from Yvonne's house.

Same outfit except for the sweater, which I last wore here in April with chartreuse and dragons.
"I'm swooshy!"
The runners are Air Walk, acquired at a swap about 3 years ago.

And yes, I tried the "pomp" on my hair.
It was fun, and my girlfriends loved it - I am excited to try it again with a little more product. It should be fun when it's a bit longer.

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.
I have owned Sam & Libby shoes before, including 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.
I love that strapping around the heel.

They were in very good condition:
And a good price at $16.50! They are a large size 8.5, since I'm usually a 9.5-10 in most shoes.

I also found these awesome neutral metallic studded flats.
So. Many. Studs!

I don't know this brand.
When I looked up their website (link for info only), I see that their flat sandals start at $195.00. Wow.

Check out the little square heel!
 So adorable!

I love how the leather is all wrapped and criss-crossed:
A peek-a-boo heel!

I guess I did pretty good for $8.50.
And real leather ("vero cuoio").

I've been looking around for nice evening/dressy bags lately.
This vivid red leather one is gorgeous.
Beautiful pebbled finish.

And a bargain!
 $6.50 by Cabrelli Canada, a company founded in 1940 and still going strong. I'd say this bag is 80s.

I continued my love for vintage slips with this gorgeous red one.
 It's got fine pleats in the boobs and on the hem.
No, your eyes do not deceive you: I bought two of them, one red and one orange. I'm kind of kicking myself for not getting the baby blue one, but they were $7.50 each.
According to this guide (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.
The uneven shapes are silver. These were $12.50.

I recognized these tights as being very high end, from the pattern.
These were probably around $25.00 new - but for me, only $1.00.

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?"
 Usually, he climbs down when I get in closer, but he was pretty mellow.
"I'm thinking of what item of yours I will eat once you're gone."
He ate 6" off of a bra strap a couple of weeks ago. I was not impressed - my bras are not cheap.

He is fond of the scritches between the ears:
"Oh, yeah, right there..."
 His purr-motor was going.
"That's the spot."
What a lovey boy!

I hope you're all having an awesome weekend!


  1. I bet I could find Vizzini's special spot...OOOER!
    Loving the hair, darling! So soft and pretty!
    I also love the idea of time some coming up myself-HUZZAH!
    Only YOU could make me fancy kakhi!!!

  2. It was fun to see you out shopping this afternoon really do have the fashion gene.
    I came home with a pie plate and a Scotty glass! Love those vintage chic.

  3. Vizzini is so cute as always! Even if he does have a habit for taking bites out of items in your wardrobe! :)

    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.

  4. 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. xox

  5. You find the best stuff, Sheila. Love the red handbag, the glitzy flats and your parachute skirt!

  6. 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.

  7. Love the hair, Sheila! Both pairs of shoes are beautiful, and I'd have snapped up those vintage slips too, they are fabulous. xxx

  8. ADORE the new flats. AND OMGOMGOMGOMG YOUR HAIR. Omg, it makes me want to go get another cut.

    Also herro happy viz. such a cute monster.
