Not long to go! I can feel spring just about to burst!
- Blouse - INC, consignment; last worn here in October 2016 with Valentino
- Skirt - Talbots, consignment; last seen here in January while rockin' the vest
- Shoes - Miista; last worn here earlier this month with Etro and yellow
- Coat (below) - BCBG Max Azri, thrifted
And the back is totally centred too.
Outerwear: Finally, it's slightly warm enough to wear this awesome coat again. I haven't worn it since December.
I love this honkin' big pearl necklace - I know I didn't pay much for it (maybe $20?). I first wore it here in April 2009 for Daisy's birthday, back in the days before I did detail shots. I still have that top and skirt!
- Necklace - Aldo Accessories
- Earrings - thrifted
woww, lovely lady-like spring outfit, wearing that (luxurious) shirt and pearls, with a twist of coolness! Love your shoes and love your amazing coat!ReplyDelete
Spring is coming!
Thank you! Pearls are fun to load on. I feel spring in the air!Delete
I had not noticed how perfectly the patterns on the shirt are - ha ! you've certainly got a good eye.ReplyDelete
I am trying to remember if I had seen that cool coat before - it looks like two pieces in one.
And its ok to keep the mohair skirt out, says me, who wears corduroy, velvet and wool in the summer ;)
It's a really good sign of quality, because it means a lot of fabric was wasted in cutting the pattern. I always appreciate a detail like that. You might have missed the coat - it was worn between Christmas and New Year's. Thanks, Lorena! I might have to keep that skirt out.Delete
I love your blouse and wouldn't mind having that pearl necklace, which is so pretty. xxxReplyDelete
Thank you! It's a very useful and versatile piece.Delete
Very Springlike! i love the delicate colours of the skirt matched with the beautiful shirt and of course I love your golden shoes. Fab pearls!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Veronica! I liked how the gold shoes went with the whole thing.Delete
Love the spring colors, love the blouse. My springtime strategy for the next few weeks is cheerful colors in warmer fabrics, like your skirt.ReplyDelete
Have you tried hand-washing the blouse? I just thrifted a similar, nicely made silk charmeuse blouse (leopard!). Dry-clean only, of course . . . but maybe hand-washable? Tempting . . . sigh. It's nice enough that I don't want to ruin it. I will probably shell out for the dry-cleaning.
Thank you so much! I'll probably wash the blouse on delicate in cold water, and hang it to dry (I've ruined a few silk pieces by putting them in the dryer), then give it a steam. Good luck with your blouse!Delete
Well, I may end up hand-washing--either now or on some lazy day in the future. I think it's been at least five years since I dry-cleaned a top. I hate the smell, and the cost really bugs me, especially for a $4 blouse!Delete
I used to hand-wash and steam silk blouses in the '90s. They were fine, although the texture changed a little over time. Not sure about the satin finish on this one, though.
The blouse and the honkin' huge pearls. Yeeeeah. But I love it all, as I do of your stuff, Sheila. And it's exciting to be breaking out the spring coats again, right? Hurrah! I thought it would never get here.ReplyDelete
Thank you, m'dear! I love seeing all the spring stuff again!Delete
I don't remember seeing that coat before - the illusion of two different pieces is really cool. I'd love to share coat closets with you ;)ReplyDelete
Isn't it cool? I love the two-tone white and cream. I would love to play in your closet!Delete
I'd wear this blouse in a heartbeat Shiela, it's very me too! It's quite a conservative look for you today, but the coat gives it more pazazz. Lovely as ever though!ReplyDelete
We have such similar tastes and a love for the unusual. Thanks!Delete
