Fuchia/Fashion Fusion

Yes! Friday! 
This calls for fashion fusion! Asian flair, pencil skirt, flowers on my toes and above all, a spring in my step.

  • Jacket - Tian Art, thrifted; last seen here in January with red and pink
  • Sweater (barely visible, but I know it's there) - Fairweather, thrifted; last worn here (3rd outfit in June to see "Mad Max: Fury Road"
  • Skirt - Smoking Lily, thrifted; last seen here in June for the Women's World Cup
  • Shoes - Miz Mooz, consignment; last worn here at the same time as the skirt, in June
This gorgeous jacket is one of the last items in my closet that I haven't worn this spring/summer yet. There are two more jackets and a dress (I think), and only one week to go. Some tough choices ahead, my friends! This jacket's a keeper, though. Look at that gorgeous detail!  

You can see in the pictures from last time I wore it that it is lined in fuscia-pink satin - I flashed the hem at my coworkers a bunch of times. Today's post title comes from an exchange with my coworker Kelly, who asked if I was wearing a fusion outfit. I took it as a compliment and punned, "No, it's a fuchsia fusion!" and flapped the hem at him.
The skirt will be packed away for 6 months - it's thin cotton and unlined and just not thick enough for winter.

The stuff:
This morning I was all, "I'm so over these shoes!" but by the afternoon I was feeling more well-disposed towards them. It may have had something to do with the elevators being out for over an hour and me having to clomp down six floors to the lobby and then back up again 3 times in that time span. They still felt pretty good, so I don't know. They are infamous as being "Shoes My Husband Hates."

Simple bling:
Double the Wendy is always good!

  • Earrings - Fossil, thrifted
  • Lapis lazuli ring and Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes

I'm going to the theatre with Mom tomorrow night - whatever shall I wear? Stay tuned and all will be revealed on Sunday! Have a rockin' weekend!


  1. That is a fantastic jacket, and I always love the Pan-Asian influences in your wardrobe.

  2. I so love that jacket. And "shoes your husband hates" can't be discarded - they must be put into an everlasting shrine. Heh. Or thrown into the moat where Vizzini can rip them into pieces. Okay, that's too violent. And not very earth friendly either. Love this outfit, Sheila.

  3. The jacket is a stunner - a must-keep, imho. Have a fab weekend and hope to see you at Vis Monday. xo

  4. I always wonder what it would be like to have two closets… you know according to season.
    I don't think I could do it! How could you survive all of this time without wearing that jacket ?

  5. That is a truly splendid jacket - it would even look great left open worn with a t-shirt, a pair of jeans and some great heeled boots.
