Diamonds and Polka Dots

Tomorrow is my Friday because I have the real Friday off (I'm going to the dentist, which is traumatic for me), so I rushed around a bunch today, trying to get everything tied up.

And of course, today was the day all the VPs showed up. 
Bam! In your face! Of course, all the VPs know me and expect whackitude of this magnitude from me. They'd be more shocked if I were in a suit.

I have been craving another wear from this 80s crochet and leather V of awesomeness:
I haven't worn it since the first time here in February, and that's a shame. It's too much awesome. Like, totally awesome, you know? Considering I only paid $12.50 for it, I think I'm doing pretty good at my cost-per-wear.
I adore these polka-dotted pants too! I last wore them here in March with black and white stripes.

The stuff:
I last wore these here in April with aqua and paisley. My toes are still healing from my wipe-out last Friday, so I'm trying to be good and not wear too many high heels this week.

Solid bling:
The white earrings are actually stone - you can see the end of the pin threading them on the earrings. It looks like they have eyes and are checking out my ring, hee hee.

Top (no label, vintage 80s, thrifted), trousers (Tara Jarmon, consignment), shoes (Darjeeling Teapot, Fluevog, second-hand via FlueMarket), cuff (Guess, thrifted), ring (Oscar & Libby's), earrings (Plum).


  1. I have a scaredy cat approach to my teeth too...good luck tomorrow.

  2. Fantastic outfit - got to keep those VPs on their toes with a Sheila sock-it-to-them!

    It's my Friday, too, and who knows how long my weekend will be!

  3. Anyone who knows you expects "whackitude of this magnitude" from you. Can I steal that phrase, please?!

    I love this outfit. Not only are the pants awesome, pairing them with that bold top is genius. You're like the creative master whom we all look to for inspiration and entertainment. You never fail to provide both!

  4. I hope the appointment goes well! I have to admit, I'd rather go through childbirth again than have work done on my teeth!

    Love those pants!!

  5. I love the top with those fabulous polka dot pants, a perfect combination!
    I hate going to the dentist too - I do it, but I HATE it! Good luck. xxx

  6. Love those polka dot trousers! I found a crocheted leather top with same shape, but three-quarter sleeves, and all black, at a thrift store several years ago. I wore it a couple of times, but it's going into the sale I'm having next weekend.

  7. I love those patterns together! Way to break in the VPs.

  8. Ha! i see you're in to surprise them and feast the eyes.
    I think this look rocks - it just works sooo well together i would have never imagined it.
    Those trousers are perfect.

  9. I LOVE the way your shoes echo the pattern in the top. As for being a crazy dresser - I had dinner with our two biggest bosses in the company and didn't bother completely hiding my tattoos or style. They know we're totally capable of performing our jobs even dressed a little kooky. Then again, I don't leave the office or go on client visits. It's just me running around like a chicken with its head cut off. I can do that equally well in a cute dress as I can a suit.
