Wear a Dress Monday, Plus My Louis (Lewis) Vuitton

The weekend went way too fast, and I arrived at work to find out my boss had escaped on vacation! So jealous! 
 I totally need a vacation to Mexico...even though I have zero desire to go there.

  • Dress - Desigual, vintage fair; last worn here (2nd outfit) in January with a lot of studs
  • Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last seen here in August 2017 with jungle magenta
  • Coat (below) - Danier Leather; last worn here in February

My mojo needs a jump-start. Or maybe a nap.
 An easy dress for a Monday, with matchy bits of orange.
 I wore a navy blue vintage full slip under this for warmth and extra coverage and smoothness.
 I do love a dress with pockets.

Outerwear - it's been chilly in the mornings, and warmer in the afternoons.
 I wanted to wear my new-to-me Louis (pronounced "Lewis") Vuitton fake scarf.

And my new hat!
 I loved the hat! The scarf is not silk - it's a fine polyester. Silk would have been warmer.

  • Hat - Edward Mann, vintage, thrifted - first wear ($4.50 here)
  • Scarf - fake Louis Vuitton/Stephen Sprouse, thrifted - first wear (same as the hat)
  • Studded leather gloves - Danier

I'm linking up to Judith's "Hat Attack!" over at Style Crone, and am proud to be sporting this fine example of an Edward Mann hat!
 I can totally see Diana Rigg in a cream fedora like this one! This was a pleasure to wear.

The stuff:
 I'm shocked that this is the first wear of these shoes since August! I thought for sure I'd done a Hallowe'en outfit or some outfit in the fall with them.

Silver and blue bling:
Shiny bold things.

  • Belt - vintage 80s, thrifted
  • Earrings - vintage 80s, Joyce's
  • Lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes


  1. Desigual with pattern on the back too! I love this dress of yours so much. So great that you have the perfect belt to go with those shoes.

    1. I know, a real rarity! Thanks so much, Radostin! I actually look for belts that match my shoes.

  2. Love the matchy matchy orange accessories with this, and the 'lewis' scarf! I have a LV scarf I got for Christmas and I'm just waiting for cooler weather to give it a wear!

    1. So matchy! Hee, you have a real LV? So swanky! Wear it!

  3. That Desigual dress is a perfect mood booster, especially with the orange belt and shoes. Hehe, I'm wearing an orange belt too today! I'm loving that the hem of your navy slip is cheekily peeking out ... And you do rock a fedora, Sheila! xxx

    1. It did help a lot. Love the orange belts! I never mind my slip showing. Thanks, Ann! I love the hat!

  4. That dress SUPERB and the matchy-matchy belt and shoes look amazing. That should start your mojo !

  5. Wow what a cool dress, looks like two pieces! And yes that belt it perfect!

    1. Thank you so much, Allie! I'm following you by email!

  6. You look glorious today - love those pops of orange!
    Never mind your boss, it's you that deserved the getaway! xxx

  7. Didn't I say you've got a hatface! Gal, you look fabulous in this. The dress is classy and yes, all the better for having pockets.
