Denim Peplum and Studs

Happy mid-week Friday, my fellow Canucks! Woo, Canada Day tomorrow! Canada will be 148 years old (I know this, because I am a Centennial baby - yes, this means I will be 48 this year).
Like most of the very few people who were actually in the office today, I skewed a little casual in my dress today.

  • Top -  Monteau Los Angeles, thrifted; purchased here for $10.50
  • Skirt - Nygard; last worn here (2nd outfit, after Lindi Ortega) in November 2013 
  • Shoes - Prepare Hi Steady, Fluevog; last seen here on Day 1 of purple hair at work

I'm not really surprised that I haven't worn this skirt in a year and a half - I knew it had been a long time. And as noted, last time I wore it (which was over a year from the previous time) I always waffle about it until I wear it. This skirt is awesome.

Why? Because the pattern and all those little brass studs on it, go all the way around! I love that! I hate it when a pattern is only on the front. I exist in three dimensions, dammit!
The peplum top was great - easy and cute without having to think about it too heavily. I liked the shape of it and the twirl (oh, yes, I do twirl at the office). And note how well the little studs on the shoulders go with the studs on the skirt. Eee! Matchy!

The stuff:
Great klunky shoes of awesome!

Chain bling:
I love all my new chain bracelets, and those earrings! Love!

  • Bracelet - thrifted
  • Earrings - thrifted
  • Ring - POLY, vintage fair

A very Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians out there! I'll be back on Thursday.


  1. I like how well those pieces go together Sheila! It's matchy, but not too matchy-matchy if you know what I mean!

    Enjoy your Canada day holiday!

  2. It's. too. hot. to. type.
    I. like. your. outfit. Good. skewing.
    Holiday for you tomorrow. YAY! (See? that got the energy back.)

  3. Excellent skirt! And Happy Canada Day - I did not know Canada was that old (she looks fabulous!). xo

  4. Happy Canada Day! (And the skirt is cute.)

  5. I love it! Those shoes are truly the perfect match for that skirt.

  6. These two items are a perfect match, I thought it was a dress.
    Happy belated Canada Day !
