Dotty for Emerald and Metallic Flounces

Ugh, what an exhausting day - it was eternal, yet flew by. It's late and I have yet to have dinner, so let's get this outfit started. 
 Bam! That's a whole lot of metallic ruffles in your face.

  • Sweater - Tatyana, thrifted; last seen here (6th outfit, way down) in September with these same shoes for shopping
  • Skirt - Mondi, thrifted, vintage fair; purchased here last weekend for $7.98
  • Shoes - Half Truth Tanya, Fluevog; last seen here at the same time as the green sweater
  • Coat (below) - Stop Staring!, thrifted; last worn here on the weekend

I had a lot of positive comments on the outfit - it's very shiny! But the bright green and the silver skirt really made people happy.
 I wish I'd steamed the wrinkles out of the sweater!
 The skirt is very swooshy (about a Swoosh Factor 8 for those keeping score), and had great movement. I danced around, moved a desk and flounced all over the office, then worked my WW meeting in it.

I was all matchy with the outerwear.
 I remembered that I had this green wool scarf (the pattern is safety pins), and the studded gloves go with the dots on my hosiery. I do like a theme. I also love this coat.

  • Scarf - Smoking Lily
  • Gloves - Danier Leather

The stuff:
 The shoes are one of my favourite pairs of Fluevogs ever. So. Comfy. I love that heel. Bring this one back, John! I want it in purple!

Dotty bling:
 First wearing of this seed-bead bracelet and the molecule earrings.

  • Bracelet - thrifted, first wearing
  • Earrings - vintage fair, first wearing
  • Hematite ring - thrifted
  • Silver/onyx ring - gift from Mom and Dad, c.1986

Aren't the earrings funky? Here's a better look at them on me.

Wait, better pose.
Fake it till you make it, baby!


  1. Spectacular earrings -- and great shoes. Your shoe collection is awe-inspiring!

  2. Wonderful skirt. Amazing earrings. And impressed at your fortitude to blog after a hard day. One question -- the location of your regular (first) pose: is that indoor or outdoor? I always assumed it was an indoor stairway but the door behind you looks like an exterior door.

    1. Further pondering... the stairs look like exterior steps, but I assume you are indoors for good lighting and protection from weather. Then again, maybe it's an indoor space that's outside your home, like a apartment-building corridor or shielded overhang. Hmmm...

    2. Thank you - I am good at slamming out a post quickly. We have an outside stairwell on my building, but it's all completely covered. That is an exterior door. I'll take a picture for you!

    3. Aaah! Makes perfect sense. Thanks for clearing this up. My mind has been wondering about it for days.

  3. Bright green and silver is an awesome combo, Sheila! Your earrings are so cool. I love them! Hope you have a great weekend. XXX

  4. Love everything about this outfit Sheila! Although I'm sorry you had a less than perfect day in it, as it really is a perfect outfit! Love the earrings on you and it's a stunning skirt.

    1. Eh, it's okay, Mica, thank you! The skirt was so fun to wear.

  5. Gawd, I love that coat! As I was reading, I wished for a close up of the earrings and voila (!) you read my mind. I could not wear them, although I'd want to-so I'm glad you wear them for us. You've had a tough autumn. Know that you have virtual friends who've got your back. Carol in VT

    1. Thank you! I love it too. Heh, yes, thought I would do a "face shot" so you could see the jewels. Thanks, Carol.

  6. I'd never have thought of combining green and silver, but it's a winning combination! xxx

  7. OOOOhhh the new earrings bring me joy !!!
    and that coat continues to be a winner :)

    1. I know, aren't they adorable? They squished a bit with my headset, though. I love the coat!

  8. BAM! That's what I love. You need a bonus for this outfit alone. I think the modelling industry as a whole hasn't had their coffee yet and doesn't bothering faking it. Hahaha. It's a pity.

    1. I do! Gimme a bonus for looking so awesome! Ha, I have good RBF.

  9. Metallic frills and emerald green ,
    Friend— You are slaying it!
    Love the earrings and the glasses, very chic and you !
    Just goes to show...
    When in doubt go for BAM !

  10. Superb! Everything about this is wonderful. I was just thinking I'd like to see those earrings on, when the extra pics appeared..

    1. Aw, thank you, Radostin! Glad I took the extra earring pic.

  11. Bloody hell, I love this look! Green and silver - who'd have thought to put that together? The skirt is divine, but I knew it would be. Love this whole shebang - totally inspired!
