Another week, and a whole slew of new-to-me clothes to wear! One of my favourite things is putting together new outfits right away.
- Jacket - Celia Chien, vintage 60s, thrifted; purchased here on the weekend for $26.95
- Blouse - Elite, vintage early 80s, thrifted; purchased here on the weekend for $7.15
- Pants - Banana Republic, thrifted; last worn here a couple of weeks ago with Shoes My Husband Hates
- Shoes - Prepare High Steady, Fluevog; last seen here in September 2015 with magenta fringe
Ha! I just went to look up the jacket, and I totally forgot to take pictures of it and include them in my little shopping round-up on the weekend. More pictures of the jacket below. I love it because it has open sleeves with little bridges.
I wore the cream new-to-me blouse right away as well (and sweated in it! it's warm out today!).
Here are pictures of the jacket:
The label inside says it's by Celia Chien Limited of Hong Kong.

- Pin - vintage fair
- Ear-balls - Dior
- Ring - some junky store in the late 90s
Vizzini wanted nothing to do with me this morning.

I would have definitely wrestled you for that jacket! Love the cut and the colour.ReplyDelete
It's fabulous - I can't wait to try it belted as well. It gives it a real kimono vibe.Delete
Oh, V doesn't mean it! he wants you to snuggle him all day long. Stunning jacket - love all the fine details and the color is bam! on you. xoxReplyDelete
He's a cuddle-meister - you're right, he wants me to stay home. Thanks, Patti!Delete
I absolutely adore all the colors here and it looks like the trousers go perfectly with it.ReplyDelete
That new jacket has such a different cut... it's quite a statement piece.
Thanks, Lorena! Can you imagine what the matching skirt/dress might have been?Delete
Wow, that jacket is a winner! Love the sleeves, yes. Don't you hate that? You get something new and then sweat on it. Fouling! - I can't stand it when I get new pieces. Ah well. Your shoes looks awesome with that jacket too.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I hate sweat through my clothes, but I never feel too bad since I don't pay much. Into the wash they go! Thanks, Mel!Delete
That is such a beautiful jacket and I love the firey mix of colours together. I really admire how you take statement pieces like this and make them seem so effortlessly wearable.ReplyDelete
Holy smokes, that jacket is AMAZING!! And this outfit is perfection.ReplyDelete
I have to agree with Mica T that you really have a knack for making statement pieces seem so wearable.
What an outstanding jacket and how well it goes with the shoes! Lovely outfit, Sheila.ReplyDelete
