Hey, it's okay, no more scary pictures of Alice Cooper, you can come back now! Hee hee! Everything's back to normal. We are even finished with the painting of our building, so now the stair pictures are all extra spiffy.

It was maybe a little warm for today, as it's a thick wool and cashmere blend. But it was so soft. I wore a vintage cami underneath to hide my bright blue bra.
Funny thing, though - last time I wore it was with a lovely burgundy wool suit jacket, which I gave away (the whole suit) along with my houndstooth suit (this one). Well, my dear friend Yvonne ended up with both of them at my last massive giveaway in the late spring. And tonight she was wearing the jacket with the houndstooth skirt and red boots, with a black top. Don't get it? Go look at the last time I wore this skirt above again (here, I'll make it easy on ya). Basically the same outfit! Ha!
Outerwear? Outer-there! (That never gets old).
- Jet necklace - vintage 60s, Grandma J's
- Earrings - local
I'd never have thought to combine lemon yellow with dove grey, but they're actually great together. I'm not very good with yellow, never knowing what to combine it with, so I might give this a go! xxxReplyDelete
Yellow is one of my favourite pairings with grey, actually. All shades! Try it!Delete
Great sweater, looks so cozy.Delete
You know last night I counted shoes, because I was doing my editing and so on.. counted 65. Before I had like 112 - its insane. It is too much. I have plans on downsizing to about 50-55. In my case the humidity takes a toll on them, wether they're leather, plastic, cheap or expensive..
I don't have the humidity issues, but I'm trying to weed out the crappy shoes that hurt, and only have good quality, comfy shoes. And I don't feel the need to weed them down any further at this time, but good for you!Delete
It's funny - the having so many clothes you rotate through them and wear them less frequently so they last longer made me smile. I used that very same justification to buy my second designer bag. As you'd only ever need two right?! And it meant I could rest one and use one, so they'd both last longer. I don't recall my reasoning for adding a third and fourth etc....ha!ReplyDelete
Clothes-wise I like the idea of having a big wardrobe I can rotate through but I also like the idea of having a small wardrobe that I really love everything in.
I like your outfit too, I like grey and yellow together so that's a nice top!
Because I thrift most of my clothes, the volume doesn't bother me too much - and I don't feel as bad about having to justify the quantity. The shoes tend to be worse for me, but better quality is always better for my feet (I tell myself!). When I feel like I need a smaller wardrobe, I do a 30-day capsule, like I did earlier this year. It reminds me how creative I can get with fewer things.Delete
Thanks so much! I really appreciate the great comment!
No, No, NO. Totally classy! Like so refined, I can't stand it classy! LOVE this look! Also love the detour it took when you added that great teal coat, black hat and gloves. I have a raincoat similar t that in orange!ReplyDelete
Enjoy this weekend!
Ha, okay, we'll go with totally classy, thank you, Elle! Cool, we have matching coats!Delete
I love yellow and grey together and your take on it is so elegant! You do elegant really well Sheila. I love that you've funked things up with the gloves and coat.ReplyDelete
