Well, we made it - the week is nearly at an end. Thursday calls for a stylish but comfy outfit.

Does velvet or velour work for summer? Yes, when it's done with white/cream/lace accessories, why not?

You may have noticed my hair's getting lighter - I'm going a lighter shade of purple as I grow out my white. Yes, I have white hair under there...at least in parts.

Outerwear - didn't really need it.
|"You could let me in the hall to make up for lack of tassel-chewing."|
Gold and white bling.

I'll be back on Sunday with a party outfit! Have a wonderful weekend, my friends! Thank you so much for visiting!
Ooh, velour! I love that material. BTW, I'm so excited -- I got my first pair of Fluevogs! The boots I was lusting after before. They came in the coolest box with a handful of stickers like "Embrace Peculiarity." Thank YOU for putting this designer on my map. You're the first person to tell me about him and now I see his stores in every city I visit.ReplyDelete
It's so soft and comfy. OH! I am so excited for you!! I can't wait to see them on you!Delete
Dead classy, you are! Loving the mitchy matchy hair, dress thang going down and Vizzini eyeing up your ankle ties. xxxReplyDelete
Thanks, Vix! Aw, he and your Stephen are definitely alike kitties!!Delete
I'd never thought to wear velvet (velour!) in Summer, but you've nailed it paired with the lacy camisole and shoes! I did wonder about your lighter hair colour, but now it makes sense: I think it will look fantastic in allover light lavender! Have a fantastic weekend, Sheila xxxReplyDelete
Thanks, Ann! I kept it out to wear this season, and it just seemed right. I hope my hair comes out the way I want, ha ha!Delete
I always thought it would be too warm a fabric to wear in summer - I am regretting not getting that velvet blazer now that I saw in the opshop, haha! It's a lovely dress on you.ReplyDelete
Hope that you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you! :)
It's not too bad for our summers, which are usually around 24 degrees. Ooh, I am a sucker for velvet blazers! Thank you, hon!Delete
I love velour so much. I'd wear it if I could get away with it in this heat lolol Loving the accessories!!ReplyDelete
Yeah, it's a little too hot for your area! Thanks, Becky!Delete
It works perfectly! Can t wait to see the new Hair color!ReplyDelete
The hair colour will take time - I don't want to over-process it. It will fade gradually.Delete
Matchy, matchy perfection here Sheila!ReplyDelete
What makes this whole outfit especially wonderful is your hair color. I also love the jacket and like you, always get annoyed when a jacket clings to my dress.
Good velvet is so soft and wonderful to wear. No wonder you are smiling !
Crushing on those designer lace espadrilles!
Certainly one should wear yummy velvet all year round. I am looking very forward to seeing your party dress.
Aw, thank you so much, Elle! Party dress coming soon!Delete
Its cool : espadrilles and velvet, its like summer meets fall in one outfit, something I do all the time :)ReplyDelete
Yup, your outfits always seem to meld seasons well. Thanks so much!Delete
