Black and Red Classics

I don't think I could be called a classic dresser - I definitely am a maximalist, as opposed to a minimalist, when it comes to clothes. 
For me, these are classic pieces. It's only the little dashes of crazy that make my look not quite what other people might wear.

  • Sweater - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; purchased here for $15.50 on the weekend
  • Skirt - Gianfranco Ferre from Giorgio Beverly Hills, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in January with neutrals-o-rama
  • Shoes - Mini Qtee, Fluevog, consignment; last worn here in February for a brunch out

This sweater was the perfect weight for chilly mornings and warm days. I have a vintage camisole on under it for coverage.
Double-slit action on this amazing quality skirt. This is one of my treasured pieces, that I look forward to wearing every year. It has a very high waist.

The stuff:
The V-patterned tights are meant to pick up the triangles in the scarf and set off the cute shoes. No wonder they call these the Qtees!

Simple bling:
Someone classier than me would probably not wear ginormous orange hoops with this. This is the first wear of these wooden earrings, purchased for $2.00 at the Vintage Expo on the weekend.

  • Scarf - thrifted
  • Wrist wrap - handmade
  • Earrings - vintage fair

It's also the first wearing of this lovely silk scarf. I adore the colour mix.

A thank you to Lorena for making my Disney Princess dream come true! Check it out here!


  1. Fantastic outfit. I love your blog, gives me ideas about how to work my own collection into outfits. Cheers!

  2. Classic with a Sheila spice - love the hose with this look, and the new hoop earrings too. xo

  3. Hahaha! Lorena is cool - I love that she Disneyfied your outfit. This is a great ensemble - especially with those tights that make my eyes go all pinwheeling. The tights and hoop earrings, this is why you are Sheila, unique and awesome.

  4. I think you're pretty classy and that the orange hoops were the perfect choice. Shoe ENVY..those Qtees, oh my.....this outfit is one of my favorites so far!

    You've got style lady!
