Jerkin, Fruital and a Zodiac

This was a fun outfit to wear.
Many of my coworkers commented on it - everyone loved the purple suede vest. I think of this as my jerkin, a term that Curtise uses (being British and all). Go visit her here - she's awesome!

  • Blouse - no label, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) in February for a shopping expedition
  • Vest - no label, vintage 70s, consignment; last worn here (2nd outfit) in November 2013
  • Skirt - Jones New York, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here in January with sparkly blue
  • Booties - Prepare Maps, Fluevog; last seen here in December 2014 with sparkly sequins

I wasn't really feeling the vest today until I'd worn it for a while. It hugged me like an old friend.

My fruital blouse is always popular.
All the colours! And flowers and fruit! What is not to like?

The stuff:
Happy purple boots. I walked several blocks today in these. Totally comfy shoes.

Zodiacal bling:
One of my Chinese coworkers said this necklace reminded him of a zodiac necklace. Is there an elephant in the Chinese zodiac? I don't think so. But we have cows, goats, horses, a snake and a dragon!

Games Night, so I'm off to make spaghetti! Have a lovely evening!


  1. Wow! Fabulous outfit. Not only does it work well but it displays your distinctive style. You have such a signature look, Sheila.

  2. The vest and boots look like they were made for each other… and I just read that chokers are back !

  3. such an awesome vest, love that suede texture and fabulous color!, and obviously, love your boots!!!

  4. Got to love a jerkin! Actually, I think I adopted the term from Vix, I would have called it a longline waistcoat, but jerkin sounds much better.
    Yes, great colours and a fruit print, perfect! xxx
