I am a mass of cosmic influences today: night sky, stars, swirls of outer space dust! They are all in my outfit.
- Vest - no label, thrifted; last seen here in March to meet a reader
- Top - Jean-Paul Gaultier, consignment; last worn here (4th outfit) in August for a shopping trip
- Skirt - Trina Turk, consignment; last seen here (2nd outfit) in November for a weekend brunch
- Booties - Coffee Kope Tiam, Fluevog; last worn here in November with cropped leather and green
- Coat (below) - Hilary Radley, thrifted; last seen here last week
I built my outfit around three things: new-to-me earrings, a new-to-me necklace and an old pair of footless tights. You can see a bit of the shiny metal discs on the tights in some of the pictures - they are all down near the ankles and lower calf, and these tights are saggy and kept sliding down, so NOPE, in the bin you go!
I love the top and its cosmic circles... it's, like, trippy, man...The colour is blown out a bit so that you can see the details of texture and pattern.
|See? Bad back definition from the vesty thing.|
The skirt is my lovely Trina Turk tulle one - it's a very rich navy blue and very floaty and fun to wear. Needs pockets.
It's such a Monday that I don't even have a face for you.
Outerwear - I was dubious that I would need the Unsafe Ocelot today, but by the time I walked home, carrying all my groceries, I was so glad to be bundled up. Slashing rain and wind!
- Headwrap - thrifted
- Gloves - Parkhurst
- Fur scarf - Danier Leather
My headwrap and gloves are navy blue too.
- Cuff - JPA, vintage fair
- Earrings - thrifted here for $5.00 - first wearing
- All other jewelry - POLY by Christophe Poly; all thrifted, vintage fairs.
The square Poly necklace is the new-to-me one, purchased here on the weekend for $14.00 in a used furniture store. It's like the universe put it there for me to find.
I love all of the metallic in your outfit Sheila - what a great way to accessorise such a fun top! Hope your Monday flew by, not long until you're on break! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mica! The days (daze?) do fly!Delete
As much as I love velvet, i think freeing that hanger was a good choice.ReplyDelete
I was looking at the necklace that you recently spotted and picked up for just 14.00! I always feel like a "winner" when I spot something and before looking at the tag can source where its from or who makes it. Great find.
Yup, I agree. I've been wanting to wear that, but it's just not been inspiring me.Delete
I knew as soon as I saw it that it was a POLY piece! That always feels great.
You're rocking several trends there in fabulous style! I drool over skirts like yours (not literally!). Have a great vacay!ReplyDelete
Am I on trend? How lovely! Thanks so much, Gail!Delete
Love the skirt and cosmic top! And it's good to see you're wearing that fabulous pendant! You just had to, hadn't you? I'm hearing you on the vest, though. Good to free up its hanger for a fabulous new item ;-) Saggy tights: oh no, that's just horrible. I hate it when that happens. I'm counting down to vacation time too! xxxReplyDelete
Thank you, Ann! Yes, I had to wear it right away! You know me well, ha ha! Yeah, the vest was just not right - I know someone else will love it. Yup, saggy tights have to go!Delete
Bring on the vacation!!
Don't you just hate saggy tights?ReplyDelete
I see why you don't like the vest; I think it's the ruching at the back but what lovely velvety material. I am loving the cosmic spacey jewellery - fabulous!
Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, Sheila, and a well deserved rest.
They are the worst, Vronni!Delete
It's got a draw-string at the waist for wearing it zipped up, but the zipper then bells weirdly - but yes, the fabric is lovely!
Aw, you too, my dear. Thank you.
Love the galaxy daze outfit! XReplyDelete
Thank you, Jess!Delete
Loving the trance vibe of the top! Your necklaces are just lovely and the unsafe ocelot takes it to another level.ReplyDelete
Gah! I hate descending gusset syndrome, it's the worst! xxx
It's so very 90s, isn't it, Vix? Aw, thank you! Gusset is such a funny word.Delete
love your metalic galactic bling! the new necklace is fabulous! and love all the metalic details!. Sorry that you didn't feel like wearing the velvet vest anymore, probably it's because of that seam in the back, I think it looks nice in the front!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Sometimes I just like gobs of jewelry. That seam in the back of the vest is a draw-string - it's just kind of odd.Delete
