The work-week is over and I am glad. Tonight, Friday, we are going out, and I've just gotten up from a quick nap to clear my head of work-stuff.
- Top - Helmut Lang, vintage fair; purchased here for $30.00
- Skirt - Gianfranco Ferre for Giorgio Beverly Hills, thrifted; last seen here in January with bright red and dots
- Shoes - Channi B; last worn here in January for mojo-building with teal and velvet
- Coat (below) - Zara, gift from Dominique; first worn here in October
You'll have to wait for Sunday to see my glam outfit, though.
I do love all the draping and swooshing of it. The sleeve caught on the bathroom stall door every single time!
I didn't quite have the right coat for the outfit, and made do with this cocoon coat for outerwear.
My fur scarf is bundled at my neck, and my long wool gloves were so fine and warm.
- Scarf - Danier Leather, thrifted
- Gloves - vintage, thrifted
These shoes are wonderful to wear - I must make an effort to wear them more! The platform inside the front means the heels are less than 1.5".
- Necklace/bracelet - vintage 1930s? gift from L
- Earrings - thrifted
- Feather ring - Fossil
- Bronze ring - P. Sarpaneva, vintage 70s, vintage fair
- Spinner ring - Twang & Pearl
Here's a close-up of the dragons, guarding their stones.
Love this soft and drapey look in the muted colors,
The skirt and the dramatic cut, has drama enough..so color is not needed.
Love the teal shoes and fabulous coat,
Thank you, Elle - it's a newer thing for me to wear this neutral colour.Delete
I love the drape of that top, it's a beautiful piece! :) I'm with Elle too - the top has enough interest that it doesn't need a bold colour as well (although I know you love and look great in brights!).ReplyDelete
Enjoy your night out and your weekend :)
Thanks, Mica, I appreciate that!Delete
That Helmut Lang top looks amazing on! I love the shoes and your jewelry, especially that amazing dragon set! xxxReplyDelete
I love his draping - so fun! The dragons don't get worn enough!Delete
As always, an amazing outfit - but I want to see the glam outfit now! hahaha!! Sneaky heels are best, and the dragons, well, too cool.ReplyDelete
It's up, it's up! I love a pair of sneaky heels.Delete
I adore that Helmut Lang top and would *not* be tucking it away for warmer weather -- I'd be wearing it through the cold weather with some long sleeved tees. So many of my favorite things get used through out the year that way (or with a chunky sweater over the top for the sleeker things...)ReplyDelete
Thanks for your thoughts - I actually have a gigantic wardrobe, so I"m fine with not keeping this out. I have a lot of other fun things to wear!Delete
Wow! I love the dragon necklace and bracelet so much! I was born in the year of the dragon so I have a few items of clothing and accessories with dragons on them but nothing as fab as yours! Hope you're having a great weekend. XXXReplyDelete
Aren't they amazing? I really love them. Thanks, Sasha!Delete
Hahaha, I have a top that always gets hooked up on door handles - always makes for interesting trips to the bathroom. The cocoon coat is fab and works beautifully with the pencil skirt.ReplyDelete
I was worried I'd rip it! Thanks, Anna!Delete
Very pretty Sheila, this top looks so good with that skirt.ReplyDelete
I would even layer it and wear it over a black turtle neck sweater.
Your outer wear if fabulous.
If I owned a black turtleneck, I might try that - I loathe turtlenecks! Thank you, hon!Delete
