Cobalt and Fiesta! and Gold

I'm less grumpy today (and my office breathed a sigh of relief!), but yes, I do manage to be cranky, even when I have bright colours on. 
I'm so used to bright colours that they don't even phase me.

  • Sweater - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; first worn here in February with yesterday's trousers
  • Skirt - Oui Set, thrifted; purchased here a couple of weeks ago for $16.95
  • Boots - BCBG Max Azria; last seen here in February with tones of grey

Overall, I liked the colours in this outfit - I mean, who doesn't like cobalt blue and fiesta?! Fiesta! It's even fun to say! However, this turtleneck shape is everything I don't like about turtlenecks. I have all this chestal space going on. *waves airily*
I adored this skirt, though. Such a great texture and soft and a great colour. In case you're wondering, I'm kind of swapping things in and out of my capsule - I've winnowed out a few things and have put in a couple of things here and there. I'm under the number of items that I started with, but I still have a full month to go, so we'll just go with the flow and see what happens.

The stuff:
Great galloping black boots!

Gold bling:
And a bigass necklace.

  • Necklace - D'Orlan, vintage, thrifted
  • Earrings - local

One of my coworkers today asked, "Is it real?" (meaning, is the necklace real gold). "Yes, it's a real necklace," I deadpanned. No, it's not real gold, only gold-coloured.


  1. The tone on that necklace does look like real gold... its such a great statement piece.

  2. LOL @ your comeback. Love this color combination and the statement jewelry.

    PS Trump had a good electoral night last night - we are investigating condos in Vancouver should he win. Neighbors!!



  3. Sheila, your brights are brightest! I love them.
    (Much as I would love you to move to Vancouver, Patti, I hope there is no need!!!)

  4. Great skirt, in a fab colour. And I think the necklace remedied the chestal area problem very neatly - if you hadn't mentioned it we surely wouldn't have noticed.
