Just as my cold (or whatever it was) seems to be waning, I have come down with my February allergies. The streets here are lined with beech trees, and all we need are a few warmer days for them to start spewing pollen all over the place.
- Cardigan - Theory, thrifted; purchased here in January for $6.00
- Dress - Talbots, consignment; last worn here with a beaded cardigan in December 2017
- Boots - Matisse, consignment; last seen here (2nd outfit) in December 2017 with my Christmas tree skirt
- Coat (below) - Denny Rose, consignment; last worn here in January
I built the outfit around this fabulous new-to-me belt that I bought on the weekend. After being "off" belts for a while, I'm now back on the belt bandwagon, and wanting to wear them more. Good thing, as I have quite a collection.
The dress is a favourite, full of swoosh and swirl.
Outerwear - a little overcast and drizzly today. I bused to the dentist for my 7-month check-up, then walked home in the grey misty droplets.
- Fur scarf - Danier, thrifted
- Gloves - Parkhurst
But wait, what is this? Could it be? The elusive Pocket Sextuple?
|This is my "I hate being sick" face|
Tan and brass bling:
- Belt - Sand Castle USA, thrifted - first wear, was $14.95
- Frida cuff - thrifted
- Poe cuff - Jezebel Charms, gift from L
- Wood/acrylic picture ring - consignment
- Spinner ring - Twang & Pearl
- Earrings - thrifted
Oh no! I hope you get some relief from it all soon Sheila! A cold, allergies and then the dentist are not a happy day. Pockets are though, I didn't think I've ever worn so many pockets in an outfit before, but of course now I'm curious to try count next time I'm wearing something with pockets! Pocket-less dress today.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mica - when it rains, it pours, eh? I laughed when I realized how many pockets I had on!Delete
That's no good, Sheila! Hope you feel better soon. I love the way you've styled your red dress with that cardi and fab belt! Love the tan and brass bling and the boots too. XXXReplyDelete
Thanks, Sasha, I'll get there.Delete
It's only a matter of time and I'll be sneezing too. Just reading about beech pollen is making my nose itch. But I'm glad to see that neither your allergies nor your impending visit to the dentist is affecting your amazing style. What a fabulous dress: swooshy AND pockets! I love how you styled it with that cardi and your new belt. Only two pockets for me today ... xxxReplyDelete
Gah, the pollen here is just awful. Thanks so much, Ann!Delete
Oh, those coat pockets in the colour-block seam! So glorious! Wishing you better soonest.ReplyDelete
I know, aren't they fabulous? Thanks, Radostin!Delete
That coat with that dress. Ooooh, deadly good. AND with six pockets in total. Too bad we don't have six hand sometimes to help out with the multitasking, but then I guess I'd need three brains, one for each pair. Sigh.ReplyDelete
I need to get to the dentist too. Guh.
So many pockets! You're right, I need more hands. Dentists, eee...Delete
lots of fabulousness and six pockets! woww!! And such an awesome color combo, love how your coat matches everything!, and your boots! You totally rock (once more!)ReplyDelete
I know - so many pockets! Thank you so much, Monica!Delete
This is so matchy matchy and fabulous at the same time.ReplyDelete
I recently came across a Theory garment (the brand makes amazing stuff) on sale but... it was too tight :(
You know I love my matchy-matchy! I can't help it. I used to have a Theory blue wool wrap skirt - I loved it.Delete
Love you sick face! So sorry you've been ill, but can only imagine that you must be on the mend by now (hopefully). You and I could share dentist stories for a hour or so, but let's not bother.ReplyDelete
It's great to see that wonderful coat again my dear - it's so classy or do I mean klassy?
Thank you so much, dear Anna! I'm sure we could go on for hours about our teeth, but let's not, eh? Thank you! It's a classy coat on a klassy gal??Delete
Sorry to hear about the cold, and the allergies. I'm convinced there is something in the air in my office that I'm allergic to, as I will sneeze multiple times in a row and then end up congested. Only happens at work! Love the swishy red frock.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Shelley! That is weird about your office!Delete
Love your style, lovely outfits! KissesReplyDelete
