I spent a few minutes fussing in my closet last night before bed, frustrated with my clothes. It's me, of course, not the clothes. I have all these lovely new things, and I just couldn't get them to go with anything else.here last week. Nothing new, everything ready to go. No thinking involved. Ah...
- Blouse - Levante, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in October 2016 with black velvet pants
- Skirt - Gianfranco Ferre, via Giorgio Beverly Hills, vintage 80s, vintage shop in Vancouver; last seen here (2nd outfit) a year ago in January 2016 with a lavender kimono top
- Shoes - Chie Mihara; last worn here in August 2016 with pink and denim
- Coat (below) - Samuel Dong, thrifted
Adoring this VERY red blouse - silk is so nice to wear, and I love that it's washable. And a bigass bow? Yes!
here) - this bottom is NOT pants of any kind. It's a double front/back slit skirt. The last time this slit style was "in" was in the early 80s (I remember, because I had a cream skirt just like this in high school).
This skirt is one of my treasured, "never let go" items, despite it being, you know, a black skirt.
- Belt - Danier Leather, thrifted
- Earrings - thrifted
While it's nice to wear new things right away, some days just call for an easy no thinking required outfit! And you have so many lovely pieces nothing ever looks like you didn't spend any time on it!ReplyDelete
Totally! Aw, thanks, Mica!Delete
I absolutely understand why you would never let go of this skirt. It is such an unusual yet classic garment, because, well - at the end its just a black skirt.ReplyDelete
Save me from black skirts! There are just so many of them out there - but this one is so special and beautiful.Delete
That skirt is so perfect on you, thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thanks very much, JM.Delete
The quality of the skirt is visible. It's a lovely classic outfit jazzed up with the brilliant belt and those fabulous shoes. You have the most wonderful collection of shoes of any of the bloggers that I've seen!ReplyDelete
I think your hat looked great - not dorky but sophisticated...
Thanks, Veronica! Aw, thank you - I do love my shoes, and I especially love finding unique pairs like these. I appreciate the vote of confidence in the hat!Delete
great outfit, I really like the belt - just the right width and everything. Also the skirt is amazing. Funny thing about silk - I'm over here in 40 degree celsius heat in Sydney australia, and silk is also wonderful to wear in the heat, so light weightReplyDelete
Thank you, Sue! I love silk in the spring/summer as well - it's really an amazing fabric.Delete
I don't think that hat looks "dorky" on you at all! I like the feel of silk, but I end up ruining it when I perspire, so it's on my list of fabrics I don't buy.ReplyDelete
Aw, thank you, Shelley! Vintage silk can often be washed/dried on delicate settings - I'm sweaty too, so that's also a factor for me.Delete
Tres chic today Sheila! Beatiful shirt, sleek skirt, lovely shoes, but oh how I love that belt! It's perfect - great width, great pattern and will go with everything, result!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Anna! I should probably wear the belt more, but eh, I didn't pay much, and it doesn't take up a lot of room.Delete
