Well, that was a fun long weekend! Even though it was US Thanksgiving, I am very thankful for taking that time off and relaxing with my friends and family (that would be L and Vizzini).
More pictures below, but I'm leading with my glamour shot from last night's party.Visible Monday" over at Not Dead Yet Style (go, go, go!) and to Anne's "52-Pick-Up" over at Spy Girl - the theme is "Gold, Abundance, Friendship". I think my necklace and my abundance of friends certainly qualifies me! Oh, and mustn't forget "Hat Attack!" at Judith's Style Crone (I so love your green fascinator, Judith!).
But let's not get ahead of ourselves, we have Thursday, Friday and Saturday to get to!

|"I like the woman's skirt."|
I was a few minutes early, so I quickly scouted out Flavour Upstairs for anything good. I may have gasped aloud when I saw this skirt. I snatched it off the rack like someone was going to tear it from my hands!
Behold, the Muppet Skirt!
It's by Joy Nilsson, an Australian designed from the late 60s/early 70s who stopped making clothing in early 1974. Check this out here - it's an article from The Age newspaper from Feb 28, 1974 noting that Ms. Nilsson had shut down for good.
On Saturday, L and I did our usual brunch.
- Sweater - Vero Moda, thrifted; first seen here for a Casual Friday in September
- Skirt - Danier Leather, thrifted; last worn here (4th outfit) for a limo adventure last March!
- Boots - Marc; last seen here (2nd outfit) in September on a very red weekend

Outerwear! It was a good day for yellow leather.
- Studded cuff - homegrown vintage, 80s
- Leather cuff - Guess, thrifted
- Earrings - 10th anniversary gift from L
I wore my hair up during the day, so that it would be easier to prop it up for the evening - party time!
- Dress - Joseph Ribkoff, vintage 90s; purchased here in June for $32.00
- Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last seen here in November with the bright flowered skirt
- Coat (below) - Forever 21, thrifted
I took this shot because I did my nails! I rarely bother with them - and I hate when they are long! - but I grew them out a bit, filed them and put on a coat of navy blue quick-dry polish. I removed it today and cut my nails - back to normal!
I was so comfy all night in this dress.
And you know I love showing off my ink.
Doesn't L look awesome?
My little beaded purse.
This is a gorgeous vintage necklace that I've had for about 15 years.
It's quite a statement piece, and I don't wear it very often, but isn't it gorgeous?
- Fascinator - Roberta's Hats
- Necklace/earrings - vintage 30s, gift from L
- Green crystal ring - consignment
- Amber crystal ring - late 90s
Vizzini spotted my feather fascinator and became obsessed with finding it.
|"Hmmm...not feathers, but still possible edible."|
|"Is that the feather thing? I want the feathers!"|
One of my coworkers owns a photobooth set-up, so L and I did our pictures.
Wow! You look like a movie star in this green goddess gown! That vintage jewellery is spectacular as well.ReplyDelete
The green is so wonderful with your hair and glasses. I'm sure you were the best dressed attending.
Oh you two together - so fabulous! You each found the perfect mate, yeah? And your picador skirt is too wonderful. Thanks for linking up, xoxReplyDelete
Your pink skirt has left pink spots on my eyeballs - most awesome skirt! And the heavier the better. Stellar find. And you and L are the most styling couple at the ball. Heads must have been spinning all night to gawk and be amazed - in the best possible way. Stunning! Hats off to L for his orange pants. Ooo-ee.ReplyDelete
Wonderful! Your goddess look is heavenly! Thanks for linking.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see how you wear that pink skirt - what a wonderful statement piece! Great that you could clean it so easily too :)ReplyDelete
Your part outfit is the best - the green and gold work wonderfully together and that necklace is a beauty. L picked well!
Great post. I want a pink Muppet Skirt!ReplyDelete
Sheila what an exciting post this is. So many fabulous creations to comment on. I love, love, love the pink mohair skirt and would be swanning about it that all winter if I could. Such a lot of gorgeous leather pieces too, particularly the yellow jacket. Oh and those embossed leather boots, aren't they amazing too! But, yes the icing on the cake is your green satin gown - I have a gold one similar, but the green is outrageous especially against your hair colour. The necklace is in close competition to taking the prize too, but gown is the winner! Wonderful post. And hey, you guys looks so cute together xxxReplyDelete
Anna's Island Style
Stunning dress, you're like a green goddess!! xReplyDelete
DANG! You and L. are such GLAMOUR PUSSES!ReplyDelete
A weekend of midis and maxis, all gorgeous, but the showstopper is definitely the emerald evening dress. It has a real old Hollywood glamour about it - you look amazing! Beautiful jewellery too. xxxReplyDelete
You must have been the belle of the ball with that green gown (and, yes, it went so well with all that artsy ink). My favorite, though, was that vintage picador skirt. A real stunner!ReplyDelete
totally rockin' the style and energy SnL! love seeing these!!!!! xxooCaroReplyDelete
You two had to be the Glam-ist of the Glam at that party! Both of your outfits were fabulous. I really like when you wear your hair up - you should do "the Swoop" more often. Now that I no longer have mine, I will have to live vicariously through yours :)ReplyDelete
All the outfits you put in this post are great, and the hot pink fuzzy skirt is not just a statement piece, it's a whole damn book. Can't wait to see how you style it.
Mom and I vote for the bull fighting skirt as our favorite.ReplyDelete

Every ensemble that you wear in this post is incredible. But your holiday outfit is total glamour and I enjoyed every piece that you chose to weave your magic. Thank you so much for sharing your fascinator from Roberta's Hats with Hat Attack!ReplyDelete
Woman... you have some awefully good stuff. It is wow with every outfit you show. And of course completely wow with the emerald dress.ReplyDelete
And how nice to have a man who likes clothes as well (my husband used to like them too.... used to..). L looked very good.
