So, yes, I did not go to work yesterday. I couldn't breathe, and I had barely slept. I got up, fired off an email to HR and my boss, and went back to bed. I needed that. I'm still sick today, and I probably should have stayed home another day.

this outfit, which was one of my favourites of 2016. Same blouse/skirt combo, but this time with a cream blazer and shoes that read lighter. Through my groggy sickie stupor, I perceived that people at work liked this too.
I somehow neglected to crop my outerwear picture, so here's a wide shot for ya. Note that my white floral Doc Martens are ready for me to change into for my walk to work. They are being worn daily - my cost-per-wear is down to about $4.00 a day already! They've been a dream to wear, and I get comments on them every day, not to mention that they are highly visible when I'm walking in early morning or early evening light.
Okay, that may be the cold medication talking. *ahem*
|Makes it more fun when you know they got it on in real life, hee hee!|

On Tuesday night, I had Cat over to "test-drive" our outfits for the Big Dramatic Event happening tomorrow night. We had many giggles, much styling, and playing with Vizzini in and around my closet. Cat gave me a pair of her old boots!
I also redid my nails that night. That yellow was crap, and it's been turfed. This is my favourite nail polish. It's so GOLD.
|I see gold polish!|
It's hard to see here, but L is rocking a 10" afro of his REAL HAIR there. It was a phenomenon. People were in awe.
Anyways, this nail polish and I go way back. I'll have to see if Rimmel still makes this colour - it's nearly empty!
And with that, lovelies, I am off! Off on one grand adventure after another - it is a very busy weekend for me! I guarantee whackitude. See you on Sunday! Happy weekend!
Glad you're feeling better! I think it's good you got to wear some of your favourite pieces to give you a bit of a boost too. Enjoy your big event, hopefully you are back to 100% for it.ReplyDelete
Me too, thanks, Mica! I hate getting sick, but at least I can look half-decent while I am.Delete
But of course, you ARE a movie star. Glad you're back on your feet. And it must have been fun hanging out with your friend swapping clothes and getting ready for the big event. And the photos - you and L certainly know how to do it up right every single time. And I'm glad you haven't lost your touch. As if... Snow everywhere here today. Gaaaa!!!ReplyDelete
Heh, at least in my own mind, I am. It was a pretty short visit - I still wasn't feeling great (and missed the next day of work). Hee, I thought you would enjoy those! We've always been wacky! It's ice-raining here. Oh, joy.Delete
Love your super crazy outfits! I'm a big fan of gold polish also, but I don't use any polish very often. Hope you are back to 100% soon!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Charlotte! Be ready for at least one fun outfit! I don't usually do my nails either - this is a mini-resolution for this year.Delete
I loved the old photos of you and L - fabulous. The gold mail polish is beautiful and you have lovely nails.ReplyDelete
The new jacket looks wonderful and those shoes are just amazing - I don't think you showed us the side view before. Lovely friend's donated boots - just what you need Sheila - more boots!
Have a great weekend and hope you make a full recovery...
Thanks so much, Veronica! Feeling better! I know, I don't really need more boots, ha!Delete
Great pictures of your lovely outfit now, and the historical ones are so fun to see too. I hope that outfit gave you a lift to wear--with Carrie on your feet, how could you not be cheered, despite how you felt. Feel better soon! And have a fun weekend!ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed them, Linda, thank you. Yes, whenever I wear favourite pieces, I always feel good. Clothes are great therapy.Delete
Lovely photos from back in the day!ReplyDelete
I just cleared out at least a third of my nail polish collection, including a bunch of Rimmel bottles from 10+ years ago. They don't seem to make that really opaque one-coat stuff anymore--such great colors, too. Alas.
I saw today, as I bought a few new bottles, that Hard Candy has a gold shade that looks exactly like yours. Hard Candy is my current drugstore favorite.
I don't do my fingernails very often (mostly toes in the summer), but it is a treat once in a while. I put on some sheer shimmery stuff last weekend, and all week at work surprised myself with my twinkly digits.
Hee, I can't believe it's been so long! I've been going through my polishes and weeding them out - this is a fun little project. Ooh, thanks for the tip on Hard Candy - I haven't seen that brand here. I always do my toes in summer, but have really neglected my hands. It's such a nice pick-me-up!Delete
Aww I'm sorry to hear that you are sick :( I'm down with a cold myself right now, and it is NOT fun. I love your touches of metallic in this outfit, and that coat is so lovely too!ReplyDelete
I seem to have gotten a fairly light dose of it - I've been lucky, so thank you! I hope you feel better soon.Delete
You rock, dear movie-star lady!, and I'm glad you're feeling better!, that fabulous outfit could cheer up the day for sure!ReplyDelete
Love your shoes (as usual), the boots are fab, but those shoes are Amazing!!!
(ohhh, those pictures, sorry you didn't keep that orange wig!!!!)
Thank you so much! I know, I wish I'd kept that wig.Delete
We are all indeed stars of our own movies every day we fabulous fashionistas! The cream jacket does really change the overall tone of this outfit, but the star still has to be that wow of a gold skirt - love it xReplyDelete
Get well soon honey!
I love the gold skirt - maybe I'll keep it out for the summer and wear it a bit more. Thanks, Anna!Delete
Oh wow this look is great, the skirt, that light blue top - and look at those nails :)ReplyDelete
Fancy nails! They didn't last very well, though.Delete
