All week, I've been trying to wear sort-of practical (as in MY sort of practical, ha ha) clothes with the anticipation of putting up the office Christmas decorations.
- Jacket (part of a suit) - Hettemarks from W&J Wilson, vintage early 60s, thrifted; last worn here in January while being Agent Sheila
- Top - Plum, consignment; purchased here a few weeks ago for $14.95
- Skirt - Bianca Nygard, consignment; last seen here in March for St. Patrick's day
- Boots - Miz Mooz; last seen here (3rd outfit) in October for voting
I got a few comments about looking "seasonal" in this. Must be the houndstooth skirt.
- Brooch - Victoria & Albert Museum gift shop
- Serpentine bracelet - Ellandemm, thrifted
- Chain bracelet - thrifted
- Earrings - 10th anniversary gift from L
- Death Star ring - Soul Flower
Um, I might have ordered myself some booties from Fluevog when they had free shipping on Monday...
Here's the link - linking 'cause I love - go ahead and buy them in this lovely coral-pink (they are not red, as they say on the box - lies!) or black and we can be Vog twins!
I like how some buyers have folded the top down into a wee cuff, or not laced them all the way up. I might also have to get some matchy ribbon for alternate lacing.

On the sole, they have soul.
Aw, that's so nice.
Oh love your new shoes! :) I'd probably go boring and say black laces, but then I saw the blue print underneath - maybe blue ribbon would look nice?ReplyDelete
I like your outfit with all the burgundy too - really nice.
How much do I love that musical quote on your new booties?? Oh yeah, love everything about the booties as well. You look cheery for the season, and your hair accents all the reds. xoxReplyDelete
LOVE!!! Possible lace colors: I think periwinkle, lavender, or--lime green! Or metallic...I thrifted some silver leather Jack Russell sneakers and matched them with twinkly copper metallic laces from EBay, and got compliments galore.ReplyDelete
Loving all the red and black (this post and the one before) - it's such a strong and dramatic combination, one of my favourites. And this is a super-chic outfit! xxxReplyDelete
Both boots are wonderful but I especially love the new lace ones. What fun you can have with all the different colours you could wear with them. I'm with Mica - I think cobalt blue would look gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Oh how I love these lace up booties. And what a question to ask - they would look fab with bright pink satin laces, or a dark green would work in satin too. I'm have such pangs of envy now xReplyDelete
Anna's Island Style
I had the same lace colours in mind as one of your previous commenters (blue and lime green). You could also do a grey if you wanted to be a bit more sedate ;) Those booties have a lovely shape; I so wish I could wear Fluevogs!ReplyDelete
