Another weekend nearly in the bag, and woo, it's been a hot one! Until today, we've had temps nearly up to 30 - we're such delicate flowers, we're melting.
Without further ado, here we go - Friday's outfit!
- Blouse - Max Studio, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) in July with a jungle
- Pants - Gap, consignment; purchased here a week ago for $9.50
- Shoes - Ralph Lauren, thrifted; last seen here in December 2015 with a crocheted dress
- Cuff - Trifari, vintage, thrifted
- Earrings - thrifted
Vizzini will flop anywhere in the heat.
|"You caused this, didn't you?"|
|"I'll forgive you for the heat, if you rub my tum."|
|"I have very important work to do here."|
|"I sit here now."|
|"Are you making fun of me?"|
|"Leave me alone, woman."|
- Dress - Joe Fresh, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) in September 2015 with these same shoes for Ulti!

My capelet kept the sun off my fresh ink.
- Earrings - gift from Simar
Last night, Karen had a few of us over to her house while the men hung out together at Casey's. It was still swelteringly hot. Gimme a dress!
- Dress - All Saints, consignment; first worn here in July
- Shoes - Chie Mihara; last worn here (4th outfit) for a stroll to town in early July
Vizzini was unhappy that both L and I were out all night.
|"You better give me my kitty treats when I get home!"|
- Bracelet - Fossil, gift from L
- Earrings - Fossil, thrifted
Today, it was off to town (after I slept in, how luxurious!).
I dressed to shop for clothing...and bra shopping. I hate bra shopping; it's almost as bad as swimsuit shopping.
- Cardigan - Jacob, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) last weekend for shopping with Yvonne
- Dress - Mica, thrifted; first worn here (3rd outfit) in June to the Ulti field
- Shoes - Born, consignment; last seen here (3rd outfit) in that same shopping outfit last weekend
- Necklace - vintage fair
- Earrings - Aldo Accessories
After my grocery shop, I went to Flavour Upstairs. I always have great luck there. I spent about 2 hours going through everything in the store - it was lovely and relaxing.
I found this gloriously glittery necklace for $8.00.
This bracelet was also small enough for my wrist.
I couldn't resist this pink pencil skirt.
It was $12.99 and it's by Studio J,
This orange-y/red skirt is actually leather!
It's by J. Crew, and was only $14.99.
This called to me.
After my bra shopping, I happened to wander through the shoe department at the Bay. I probably should not have done that.
I needed a classic red pump - of course I did!
Linking up to:
- "Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style!
- "I will wear what I like" over at Catherine's Not Dressed as Lamb
I love the entire camo outfit, the capelet, and your new necklace. Also, Wonder Woman!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Danielle! Wonder Woman rules - I can't wait to wear that.Delete
You're not alone, Sheila: I love your orange-and-camo outfit too! I am also wondering how I've gotten this far without bronze snakeskin pumps — I admire these each time you wear them. Thanks meanwhile for the tip on the new red CKs at The Bay ... I popped over to the website and there they are, in my size ($10 more than you paid though)... so they're sitting in my cart now while I mull them over!ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see the new Wonder Woman tee! (If anything ever called for a new bra ... ha!)
Ooh, that's so exciting that you found the shoes in your size, Sherry! I hope you get them! They're such a great classic, as are the bronze ones.Delete
Love that orange and camo outfit so much! :)ReplyDelete
Hope it cools for you soon - as summer is nearly over and 30 is still quite hot I would have thought? We had a summer that continued into autumn earlier this year, it was a killer!
Thanks, Mica! I loved it. It's already much cooler here - 30 is VERY hot for us.Delete
Love the camo! And the silk dress ( I need a similar for our scorching summer), and the red pumps. And V. of course - my cat Skinny does the same dance on the back of the sofa. xoxReplyDelete
Thank you, Patti! The silk dress is the best - it would be lovely in Florida. Hee, Skinny does that too? Silly kitties.Delete
So many great looks and finds. I especially love the camo pants and the first dress. You styled everything beautifully!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Amy!Delete
I have been on the hunt (did I really say that?) for a camo piece (again, really?) to wear with a pair of bright pink jeans I have. What a pleasant surprise to see you pop up today wearing those great camo slacks! LOVE! And those second two dresses are such wonderful compliments to your new tattoo. I'm so happy that tattoos have entered the realm of classiness. You did again, girlfriend!ReplyDelete
Camo is awesome! I am not 100% sure about pink camo, though - it would have to be pretty special! Thank you so much for your kind words, Susan!Delete
I wasn't thinking PINK camo...it's the traditional GREEN camo I am looking for. And the pink jeans are more of a RASPBERRY pink. Tee-hee! I am definitely not a pink chick. Even the raspberry pink jeans are a stretch for me.Delete
Oh, gotcha, sorry, Susan! Ha! Those raspberry jeans sound fabulous!Delete
Camo, camo, I see it everywhere and it's sucking me in! These camo pants don't help, Sheila. It's one of those things I have been resisting and as soon as it disappears, I'll have some have some. I'm slow like that. Hahaha. I'm with you on the dresses - the best way to beat the heat which has come with our full-blast summer at last. It's almost like a mini-desert - hot in the day, cool at night. And the capelet, that's the best little thing to add interest to anything - and a great way to hide your new ink! Good job keeping up with the young'uns at Ulti. What is running?ReplyDelete
I see it, but it wasn't until I actually saw these pants that I was like, "I must have them!" I'm slow on trend bandwagons as well, but pfft, it's not like camo won't be "in" again soon enough, right?Delete
Running is evil. You should avoid it.
The camo trousers are A+, the Joe Fresh dress too !ReplyDelete
I am not sure I said it before but the hair color is dashing - you look gorgeous She.
AND I cannot believe you got that J Crew skirt for such a steal.
Thank you! The hair is fading out to a nice purple blend now, my favourite part of the "dye cycle". I know, finding J. Crew stuff so cheap is awesome.Delete
Those shoes!!! What a beguilingly beautiful pair of red pumps, made all the more special by the wee band of gold at the back of the heel. Fabulous score and addition to your awesome footwear wardrobe.ReplyDelete
xoxo ♥ Jessica
Thanks, Jessica - you see why I had to have them!Delete
Sheila I had no idea I needed camo trousers, but now I do! Great styling too with those heels. Oh how I wish I'd thought that one up. Love the dress you wore to go shopping - perfect for whipping on and off, but also really works so well with all of your artwork. And those CK heels, wow!ReplyDelete
I know, right? I didn't know I needed them either!Delete
Camo style a la tres stylish!! And a trip back to the 60's with the cotton short dress and big earrings - I love it on you, those little sleeves and the interesting neckline. xxReplyDelete
Thank you! I wasn't too sure about the dress when I got it, but it's wonderful in hot weather.Delete
The camp pants look fabulous on you, Sheila! I do love anything khaki with red or orange. It's such a great combo!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Suzy!Delete
