Monday Two-Fer: Thai Fringe and Raisin Leopard

Yee haw! I'm a cowgirl! 
Okay, maybe not, but I do love me some fringe! Drama!

L and I walked to town last night to meet up with our friends Tony and Laura (and their two kids) for Thai food. Yum, my favourite. We must have devoured 8 different dishes - it was all fabulous.
I admit, I didn't make a huge effort on the clothes. Our friends were traveling so no point in making them dress up. A sweater, a skirt, a pair o' boots and a crazy coat. All good.

  • Sweater - Steilmann, thrifted; last seen here in September while being a prepster
  • Skirt - INC, consignment; last worn here (2nd outfit) in December 2014 for some Christmas shopping
  • Boots - Prepare Guide, Fluevog; last seen here in September with a floofy going-for-brunch outfit
  • Coat - Pioneer Wear, thrifted; purchased here in August while shopping with Jane, for $42.95

"I would like to go for dinner too."
We must look at the coat again. I have to wear it in daylight now!
Absolutely no shoulder pads in it. I think that combination is pretty rare (fringe + no shoulder pads). I see a lot of 80s fringed coats in the thrift stores - none as nice as this one.

The stuff:
These are awesome boots for walking.

  • Earrings - Aldo Accessories

Today, I went with low heels - too many heeled boots this weekend, so I had to baby my feet.
When I put this outfit together, I was worried that there would be too much leopard, but I guess a belt and a pair of shoes is not really excessive.

  • Jacket - Ralph Lauren, thrifted; last worn here in September with lots o' lilacs
  • Skirt - Chloe, consignment; last seen here in September with leopard
  • Shoes - Kenneth Cole Reaction, thrifted; purchased here on the weekend for $8.50

I love the deep browny-purple of this jacket - I'll call it raisin.
Lots of peplum action in the rear.

The stuff:
These were fabulous shoes to wear all day! Not a rub anywhere and just perfect for running around the office.

Shiny bling:
All klassy, that's me.

  • Belt - Talbots, thrifted
  • Ring - some junky store c. 1998
  • Earrings - thrifted

This is such an odd week, with a stat holiday on Wednesday. It's like tomorrow is Friday!


  1. Hi Sheila,

    I am not sure how I finally found where to leave you a comment but am glad to have gotten here! Over this past weekend I started a blog and mentioned you in it. Have wanted to share the post with you, so here is the link:

    I promise this is not spam! It is a thank you. :)
    I also started a Twitter account, which is where I thanked everyone else (you'll see what I mean).

    Glad to have found a way to be in touch.

  2. Hi Sheila,

    Oh dear, think I just left you a comment but my iPad doesn't seem to confirm that actually happened so am trying one more time.

    Over the weekend I started a blog and mentioned you in my first post. I wanted to share the post with you because it is a thank you. :)


  3. Great outfits! I especially like that dark yellow sweater. Mustard/saffron is amongst my favourite hues ever and though it screams fall, I happily sport it throughout the rest of the year, too.

    I really dig your leopard print belt as well. Tres chic!

    Big hugs & happy Tuesday wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  4. Two Fridays this week! Love your fringed jacket - trust you to find it! Two great looks that make my morning happier, xo


  5. That coat is fringetastic!

    Thai food! Thanks for the suggestion. I think I have my dinner plans now!

  6. Love the fringey goodness, and the colour of the coat. The shoes and belt are the perfect amount of leopard, but I suppose there are people who would say you can never have too much leopard print.

  7. Love that fringe coat but I have to say the second outfit is my favourite - the leopard accessories are just perfect :)

  8. Yes, that jacket screams out Sheila.
    I love the mustard sweater, I need one.
