Strapless, Textured and Patterned

Okay, one more day. I can do this! 
It rained all day, and was really dark and gloomy this morning.

  • Blouse - CABi, consignment; last seen here (2nd outfit) under sequins for a theatre date with Mom in September 2015
  • Dress - Club Monaco, consignment; last worn here in August with a fruital blouse
  • Shoes - Poetic Licence; last seen here in October 2015 with my sailor dress (and the same obi!)

"Posing again? Rather full of yourself, aren't you, woman?"
I really liked all the textures visually represented here: pinstripes (the dress), paisley (the blouse), chairs and cross-hatching (the obi) and lacy (the tights). Plus, matchy colours!
"Your slippers smell like you."
My WW group loved this outfit, as did my coworkers. Mostly I just waved my floppy accordion cuffs at them.

The stuff:
Sweet Shoes of Awesome! These are my favourite pair I've ever owned (so far), and they're not even Fluevog! I know, shocking!

Red bling:
I had a dry spell with wearing obis, but now I'm feeling the pendulum shift to wearing them again.

  • Obi - Smoking Lily
  • Ring - Oscar & Libby's
  • Earrings - Tania Gleave

L has a house full of people, so now I'm going to enjoy an evening reading in the bedroom. Me, some tea and a warm kitty. This is the life.


  1. Love this - I need to add tights like these to my skirts and dresses. Ahh, your Friday evening sounds like heaven. Enjoy xox


  2. These shoes are amazing. I just realized that when I admire your outfits, they are aspirational in the sense that I want to move in their direction but they are SO FAR ahead of me that I'll never get there -- and that's okay. You're an ideal to strive toward, regardless of how short we fall in the pursuit.

  3. My fave part of this look are the tights - and the shoes.
    I wish I could have your Friday:)

  4. Patti and Lorena, that was my THURSDAY night! My Friday is busy!

  5. Ooooo that paisley blouse!

    Anna's island style

  6. Those shoes are really quite the scenestealers, Sheila :)

  7. Those shoes, those shoes, THOSE SHOES!!! :D Love them soooo much! They would be one of my favourite for sure, too, if I had a pair. Fabulous way to wind up this beautiful outfit, my friend!
