Chartreuse Cheater Again?

Yes! I am totally wearing this dress again - right away! 
 I spent 4 hours wearing it in a dark restaurant the first time, so why the heck not?

  • Dress - Phoebe Couture, thrifted; first worn here (2nd outfit) last Friday for dinner out with Tammy
  • Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last seen here (4th outfit) for a late September Vancouver wedding
  • Coat (below) - Stop Staring!, thrifted; last worn here earlier this month

Most people at both works said they liked my "skirt' - nuh-uh! It's a "cheater": this is all one piece.
 I switched up my accessories, did my hair differently, and voila! All new outfit.

It's the structured version of the "jammy" dress. I love the rich chartreuse silk skirt part.
"Did you say jam? Is it time for food?"

Vizzini was lurking around. The top of this dress is a bit of a cat fur magnet, I found out.

Outerwear - I changed that up too, although I prefer the Burberry leather jacket overall.
 It's getting colder out, so a bigger (and warmer) coat was needed. I went colourful with my accoutrements: purple, pink and orange!

  • Beret - thrifted
  • Fur scarf - thrifted
  • Leather gloves - Danier Leather

The stuff:
 These shoes are so shiny! My feet are tired after a long day, though.

Gold bling:
 I built the outfit around the "sunflower" earrings. They were not too heavy, but they did swing a lot. I liked the statement they made with the black top.

  • Earrings - vintage fair, purchased here for $2.00 - first wearing
  • Bracelet - Lia Sophia, thrifted
  • Amber ring - c. 1996
  • Amethyst ring - Frances Jewelers, c. 1965, Dad's

I'll be back on Sunday - this is my last peaceful weekend before the holidays, so I'm making the...least...of it! I plan to lay low.
"Hello to all my fans. Please admire my fine moustache."

There might even be some kitty-cuddling in there! Happy weekend, my friends.


  1. I'm loving your chartreuse dress, it's a fantastic piece ans it deserves a lot of chances to shine! And it shines with the fab shoes! and fabulous accessorizing (those earrings!) I love the cool 60's vibe in this outfit!

  2. I can't tell you how much I love this dress! The whole outfit is just fantastic.
    If you ever tire of the dress, let me know!;)

  3. And why not wear this almost jammy, fabulous chartreuse cheater dress again? It is gorgeous and an instant pick-me-up! Love your outerwear too: I've admired that fabulous coat many a time, and adding colourful accessories makes it even better! Oh, and Phoebe says hi to Vizzini, but she's rather jealous of his handsome moustache! Have a lovely, relaxing weekend, Sheila! xxx

    1. I so agree, Ann! Thank you! Vizzini has amazing moustaches! Thanks, hon, you too.

  4. What a fantastic skirt.....that dress has! Very delicate. Enjoy your weekend.

  5. I am in love with the sunflower earrings! The dress is magnificent and it fooled me; I thought it was a skirt and top!

    Have a restful weekend.

    1. They were a little on the heavy side, but thanks, Vronni! Gotcah! ;-P

  6. This chartreuse dress is stunning. Fabulous details and I love the length on you. Pretty gold heels, but I am hoping you are now wearing slippers and enjoy your relaxation time! I also love your hair styled like that, I can see more of your pretty face!

    1. Thank you, Elle! I like this length too. Oh yes, off with the heels, and on with the slippers. Aw, that's so sweet of you.

  7. Shut up, that dress is so beautiful! And I love those heels too!

  8. That dress is an absolute winner, it looks so good on - the gold shoes are perfect but obviously Vizzini is the best accessory ever! xxx

  9. I love Vizzini's white whiskers and goatee - Sylvester is jealous!

  10. Chic, elegant and totally you Sheila, you look fabulous in this dress, so why not wear it again? The shoes are the perfect companions, my dear, well done.

  11. You look fabulous, this dress was such an amazing find Sheila.
    I like how the earrings and pockets just match!
