Blue Monday: The Houndstooth Edition

I'm excited about my week, mostly because I don't have anything major planned, but also because I have a lot of fun(ky) outfits planned with my new-to-me purchases lately. 
Like this sah-weet handmade houndstooth suit! I had a lot of "likes" in person from my coworkers on this outfit, particularly that I'd matched my tights and top.

  • Playboy suit - handmade, consignment; purchased here on sale for $22.50 at the end of December 2015
  • Top - Anne Klein, thrifted; last worn here in August 2015 with all the primary colours
  • Shoes - Diesel, consignment; last seen here (2nd outfit) in October with a cool dress

Buttoned up.

And unbuttoned, which is how I wore it for most of the day.
"I hear suspicious activity in the hallway."
This really is an awesome suit - whoever made it really knew what she was doing. I'm thankful that I'm her size, although a bit smaller in the waist. I wore the skirt fairly low on my hips, but that made the length just right for the office.
Nice tailoring! See why I had to have this?

The stuff:
Those are such cool shoes!

Silver bling:
First wear of my new earrings.

  • Necklace - thrifted
  • Earrings - Glee
  • Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes

Tomorrow, my office is full of HR people, in town for training. I have a fun outfit planned for them - but it's still classy KLASSY!


  1. Oh that suit! What a great find. You look very chic in houndstooth. And the blue tights just lift it to a higher level. I LOVE this!!

  2. What a CLASSIC is the houndstooth suit, both in pattern and style. Isn't it fun to funk up what COULD be a very boring, predictable "classic"? Great look!

  3. Thumbs up!!!!!
    You know houndstooth IS My fave pattern- and the way you added color is just grand my friend.

  4. oh the HR people! Dress code alert (not for you my stylish friend). This is a fabulous classic suit and you wear it so well. xox


  5. Not surprising you got lots of likes for this one. Very cool styling with the top/tights combo. Oh, and I love that silver necklace x

  6. This outfit is divine, Sheila, just divine. Many would have worn red as the pop of colour so that makes your choice of blue even more spectacular. I must really learn from your bold garments, so so spirited and adventurous :)

  7. Fabulously chic outfit! I adore royal blue (and similar shades) with white and black as well. I was obsessed with that very pairing last winter/early spring and don't think I'll ever stop enjoying it.

  8. Wow on everything. Of course it is a very nice suit, but I got all carried away over your shoes....

  9. You are veritably dripping in style in your suit. Then you up the levels even more with your co-ordinating top and tights in my favourite colour - blue. So far, so delicious but what I really covet in equal measure are those shoes and that necklace - oh yes, even more delicious!
