Autumn Camo, With Purple!

Nothing new in my outfit today - I was feeling uninspired, even though I have approximately a billion pieces of clothing (being the maximalist I am!).
 And what do you do when you're uninspired? Wear a dress!

  • Dress - Dept, thrifted; last seen here (4th outfit) in January (same vintage slip under it)
  • Shoes - Mini Qtees, Fluevog, consignment; last worn here for Valentine's Day in February
  • Coat (below) - Danier Leather; last seen here last weekend

 I've put this dress in the donate pile, then (when you readers cried, "NO!") pulled it out again. A couple of times! I've resigned myself to it. This dress looks great on me, and that's that.
 I love the abstract camo pattern, and now that my hair is that colour (which I'm refreshing as I type), it's even better. For once, I didn't plan it, but it still worked out.

Outerwear - yeah, I wear this coat a lot. I love it, and since it was $400 new (several years ago), I do want to get my cost-per-wear down.
 I can't see it ever going out of style entirely. Red leather? Nah! Not going to happen!

  • Scarf - Metrowear, San Francisco, 2006
  • Gloves - Danier Leather

The stuff:
 I forget when I don't wear these lovely shoes how darned comfortable they are. Unlike many shoes that are comfortable...for heels...for being a bit know - these are REALLY comfortable. Like runners!

Minimal bling:
Who am I kidding? Nothing about that belt is minimal! It's Fendi, for goodness' sake!

  • Belt - Fendi, thrifted
  • Ring - c. 1997
  • Earrings - 5th anniversary gift from L

My friends, I will be back on Sunday, with at least one glamourous party outfit! See you then!


  1. I love your dress. Definitely a keeper! It looks fab with that belt and shoes. Have a great weekend, Sheila! XXX

  2. Love the camo dress, it is inspiring, even if you do not feel it.
    Love the vintage slip peeking out, and th gorgeous red leather coat topping it all off,

    1. Thanks, Elle! I do love it - it's an easy piece to throw on.

  3. The belt, dress, red leather coat!!!! Just gorgeous!!!!! Giving me inspo headed into the weekend!

  4. Your uninspired is most people's OMG OMG!!! I love this dress and the outfit. And the shoes and bling, always the perfect accessories.
    Oooh, a lovely party outfit coming up. I look forward to it!

  5. Brilliant and the shoes are so beautifully co ordinated.

    Have a great weekend.

    1. I was pretty chuffed at discovering how nicely this pair of shoes went with the dress - thanks, Veronica!

  6. I'm glad to see you keeping this dress as it's beautiful!

    And I had a giggle when I read the line about wearing a dress when you feel uninspired! I felt in a bit of an outfit slump coming back from Sydney as the people there are SO stylish and I felt after falling into a bit of a jeans rut I've got out some pretty dresses to help me feel good again! They are the perfect thing when you're feeling uninspired and while I'm not jumping with joy into the rest of my wardrobe, I'm enjoying the minimal thinking they require!

    1. It's such an unusual pattern and colour combo - I had to keep it. Good for you for digging out some dresses! They really do lift your spirits and make you feel so good. Yay!

  7. Thank goodness you've kept this dress. It would be a sin to get rid of something so stunning. Yes, the belt is fab too and together you could conquer the Universe in this!

    1. Thank you, Anna - yes, I have given into this dress. Universe conquering - on the way.

  8. A very good choice to keep the dress, it is fab ! And you look like a million bucks faaaar away from uninspired.
    The belt, you know I am a fan.
