To Boldly the Dentist and for Dinner

I can't feel my chin and my tongue feels like a big fish in my mouth; I'm also woozy from the happy pill still. Have I mentioned how much I dislike going to the dentist (actually, I went to the periodontist - it's for more complicated stuff than dentists, but I hate explaining it)? I would hate losing my teeth more though. 
My post-dentist activity tonight is our annual WW dinner and drinks (yes, we eat real food and drink lots of wine!) in about an hour. I might be able to slip a nap in there...

  • Dress - Adrian, vintage 60s, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) last December
  • Shoes - Miista; last seen here in November with a purple mint sandwich
  • Coat (below) - Hilary Radley, thrifted

Edited to add - I completely zoned out on "Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. Get yourself over there!
I was okay to let the bottom half of my tattoos hang out, although a longer-sleeved ANYTHING would have been warmer. Brrrr! It was freakin' freezing today! And the word on the street is that there is more snow coming tomorrow night.

I'm a big fan of this lovely vintage dress. I love the stand-up neckline and the zigzag pattern (it's raised, 3-D!) and the slightly longer length of it.
It felt very Space-Age to me, so I had to wear my new Starfleet pin!
Also, check it out, yo! I just got Anne M. Bray's "Fashion Rainbow" book in the mail! So cool! I'm emerald, and I enjoyed flipping through it going, "I know her, and I've met her, and her, and she is wonderful!" What a lovely thing this is. You should buy one.

See, there's me.
My Christmas party and New Year's eve outfit!

All the warm things: long wool and cashmere vintage gloves (thrifted), and my Danier fur toque and scarf set. This is the warmest coat I have. 

The stuff: 
Because I only worked a half day, I wore comfy flat shoes. Also very Space-Age.

Space bling! 
Those aren't moons! They're pearl earrings!

  • Starfleet pin - MoPop Gift Shop

Ah, I just have time for a short nap, and then maybe the freezing will have worn off. I hope the restaurant has soup.


  1. Ditto on the dentist, but losing teeth is worse. Congrats on being included in Anne's book!

    1. Thanks so much, Ally! And thank you for the Christmas card too!

  2. Too bad the freezing outside won't wear off too. Man, it's cold!! Love that vintage dress - I do love a space-age collar. I ordered the notebook but wish now I got the book book. Maybe later. Keep warm. You LOOK warm in that snuggle wear. Glad they loop you out at the periodontist too.

    1. I know! And we're supposed to get another dump of snow tonight. Bah! Thanks, m'dear!

  3. lovely vintage dress, the neckline and print are particularly cool! and lovely shoes too! Glad that you're wearing a warm and fab coat!
    (snow is evil!)

    1. That's what I love about it too - the print is nearly 3D. Agreed: snow is evil!

  4. Oh crap, I know how much you hate going to the dentist.
    How cool that you were featured in that book.

    1. I really do! I know, it's so awesome to be in such esteemed company!

  5. That's such a fab dress you're wearing Sheila. Oh, and I going to the dentist too ... xxx

  6. Such a cute vintage dress Sheila. And heck some days flats are all we need aren't they? That coat reminds me of one which resides somewhere in the loft - I keep nagging hubbie to get up there and find it. One day I'll show you...

    1. Thanks, Anna! Oh, heck yes, flats are often needed. Dig that coat out!
