Feeling Like a Million - Green and Grape

I fully admit it, I felt like a million bucks today in this outfit. 
Everyone who saw me raved about it. Winner!

  • Jacket - Simon Chang, vintage 80s, thrifted; first worn here (2nd outfit) as a delicate f**king flower for the VFF Gala earlier this month
  • Skirt - Eddie Bauer, thrifted; purchased here for $5.00
  • Shoes - Fly London; last seen here in December 2016 with gold sparkly accents
  • Coat (below) - Danier Leather, thrifted 

This jacket is a deep forest green - and the double peplum did wonderful things for my waist, especially accented with the skinny pencil skirt.

Look at those ruffles!
The pencil skirt was great to wear - lots of stretch, even though it's 70% wool. I had great delight in telling people that both the jacket and skirt together cost me only $15.00.

Speaking of $15.00, there's that black leather jacket again. Added my purple wool beret (consignment), my purple leather Danier gloves and my fur boa (thrifted).

The stuff:
Great bouncy shoes! My feet are tired now - Thursdays are an 11 hour work day for me - but these are workhorses in my wardrobe, going into their 6th year with me (first worn here, back in December 2011).

Sparkly purple bling:
The observant noticed how perfectly my purple accents worked with the purple in the plaid skirt, and my purple hair (of course). People, these things don't happen by accident!

  • Brooch - about 12+ years old, the Bay, I think?
  • Bracelet/earrings - Myka, gifts from L

I've got plans after work tomorrow, so I'll be back later (possibly Monday, due to the Oscars on Sunday) with a wrap-up of all my fun adventures. Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
