Okay, one more day of work and then weekend! We have a very busy weekend planned, so I'll be back on Sunday with my usual bigass post.
- Blouse - Levante, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in December 2015 under a crocheted dress
- Trousers - Tan Jay, vintage 70s, thrifted; purchased here for $8.95
- Shoes - Amalfi, thrifted; purchased here for $10.00
- Jacket (below) - I.N. Studio, thrifted
- Belt - Mimi Di N, thrifted
- Earrings - Glee
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
My fabulous Winesday women bought me a gift certificate for Fleuvog, so I finally bit and bought these online (I had tried them on in Vancouver back in March, here).
Stunningly purple. I feel like Prince when I wear these!
"Make a Fitting Entrance."
"Stand in the Liberty." I don't know what that means, but sure. These are $269.00 on the site (here, linking 'cause I love), but I had discounts so ended up paying $165.00. Thank you, to my wonderful women. I hope to do these shoes justice.
And just for fun, here's my desk at work, all decorated for Hallowe'en. I've whited-out my work name/logo and such.
Most of this stuff is mine, from various Hallowe'en, my old job (I worked at a year-round Christmas store for 11 years in my late teens/20s), and just picked up here and there.
We have two of these dumb skeletons - they're both office decorations/not mine.
Dear Simona bought me this jar of flowers yesterday "just because". I love them...so of course I stuck a plastic bug in them. The Lock, Shock and Barrel figure in the bathtub on the right is from "The Nightmare Before Christmas," one of my favourite movies. It moves and rocks along - it was a gift from my former boss.
I don't put out any candy until Hallowe'en! These two rubber spiders guard the treat bag, which is currently full of plastic eyeballs. Only the eyeballs are mine.
I'll be dressing up on Monday - will you be in costume??
Have a wonderful weekend!
OK I LOVE those purple shoes!ReplyDelete
I have velvet pants too!
Velvet pants are da bomb! Thanks, L!Delete
Ooh, Sheila, those $10 t-strap shoes! The velvet pants!! I swoon.ReplyDelete
I know, such a score on the shoes, eh, Sherry? I swoon over any kind of velvet.Delete
Sheila - I think this is a perfect outfit especially with the outerwear; elegant and classy. The trousers are fabulous; I do love velvet trousers and I love those t strap shoes.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful Halloween collection you have - I am amazed by it.
The purple fluevogs are magnificent!
Have a great weekend
Thank you so much, Veronica! I really loved this outfit. Hallowe'en is awesome and I enjoy getting into it. I have the purple 'Vogs on today!Delete
Happy weekend to you, m'dear.
Oh I'm looking forward to your Halloween costume post - you always have such well thought out ones! :) Your desk and workplace look perfect for the occasion too! We just don't get that into Halloween here :(ReplyDelete
I really like yoru outfit too - those pants are great on you. I've seen a lot of velvet arou
I'm so excited about my costume! Thanks - everyone here at work is having fun with my desk.Delete
sorry my computer sent before I was done! I was saying I'd seen a lot of velvet around lately then it posted, ha! I'm just thinking it's going to be big for next year here, when it gets to autumn/winter.ReplyDelete
No worries! Yes, velvets are huge for fall - that very elaborate Victorian/Baroque look is big. I think you should start thrifting for it now, Mica!Delete
I absolutely love your desk Halloween decor ! and velvet pants sound like a luxury I should indulge in.ReplyDelete
I have several velvet blazers that I wonder if the cut would not make them look passè-
Thanks, Lorena! You definitely need velvet pants. I think if you work the blazers you can totally do it - add some lace!Delete
The pants - swoon. The desk - double swoon. The Vogs - Triple swoon!ReplyDelete
Velvet and corduroy are no-nos with an orange cat D;
I hope you are all right with all this swooning, my dear! The black cat does shed on the black velvet, but it's not too bad.Delete
The fit of those pants is perfect, you lovely lusciousness. I have a navy and a grey pair of velvet pants waiting in the wings, but fancy that neither will rival the fit of yours, meh! The new purple Fleuvogs are mighty fine and I would certainly wear them too. Big sigh, big dose of envy xReplyDelete
Aw, thank you, Anna! I can't wait to see your velvet trousers. You will see the Fluevogs styled soon!Delete
Oh love this pussy bow blouse and that coat! I die. See you at VisMon, xoReplyDelete
Thanks, Sandy! I'll be there soon.Delete
That's a very elegant outfit, Sheila. Love the velvet pants and pussy-bow blouse combo. Wow, and your desk! xxxReplyDelete
Thank you! I really loved this outfit, so I'm glad it came across well in the pictures (they don't always). Hee, I love decorating my desk.Delete
