P.O.U.S. (Pants Of Unusual Size)

We have our VP in the office today and tomorrow, so I am classing it up - with that little bit of "Sheila" flair, of course.
 All classy in a red suede jacket and grey pants, with some nice stripey business going on. Nothing unusual here.


  • Jacket - Holt Renfrew, vintage, thrifted; last seen here with the matching skirt in April
  • Top - Cleo, thrifted; last worn here (3rd outfit) for shopping in August
  • Trousers - Linda Lundstrom, Hazel's via Caro; last worn here in February with pink suede
  • Shoes - Poetic Licence; last seen here almost exactly a year ago, here in December 2017, with these pants!
  • Coat (below) - Danier Leather; last worn here in November


I had lots of compliments on the red jacket. It is part of a suit, including this skirt I wore last Friday - can you believe I thrifted both pieces separately, weeks apart? Such luck!
 The little stripey top is just a simple piece, but I liked how it went with the shoes.

Still all classy, but have you noticed how...voluminous...the pants are?
 Those are quite the wide legs. You could say that these pants are of unusual size, in fact!

 They have seams down the front and they an odd round cut that is tapered to the ankle.
They are high-waisted too - and they have pockets!

Outerwear - leather weather!
I can't wear a hat when I clip my hair up at the back, so I had to carry my brolly. Walking home, it was far too windy for either. Gack! Weather!


  • Umbrella - Cheeky
  • Fur boa - thrifted
  • Gloves - Cejon, thrifted


The stuff:
 One of my favourite pairs of shoes, ever! Full of very versatile colours.

Blue bling:
The stripe in the sweater reads as very dark blue, plus there's a tiny bit of blue in the shoes. Why not do blue accessories?


  • Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
  • Earrings - thrifted

  7. You're certainly looking the part in this outfit, Sheila. Very Classy with a C! Those trousers are very unusual, and I'm not just talking about their size. Plus, they do look fabulous with the stripey top and red suede jacket. A triumph! xxx

  10. These are fabulous trousers and I love the wide legs. Definitely some “Sheila styling” going on. That is quite a remarkable coincidence finding both pieces of this suit separately! I love the stripes and fun proportions of this outfit.
    Yummy red suede !

    1. I know, right, Nancy? I think they must have been in separate bags, that got sorted at different times, but same donor.

  13. Totally loving those voluminous trousers my dear. I like finding these slightly odd garments - they suit our slightly quirky style don't you think?

  15. I am delighted to see you wear those trousers so marvelously well ! It's actually inspired me to maybe so my own version of this look, although I fear the rust color corduroy blazer might not fit.
