Today felt like autumn, even though it's winter. So let's dress in autumnal colours, shall we?
- Blouse - L'Wren Scott, A Tropical Conversation, FW2011, thrifted; last seen here in March 2018 with leopard pants
- Mermaid skirt - vintage 70s, thrifted; purchased here for $9.00
- Shoes - Mini QTee, Fluevog, consignment; last seen here in December 2018 with lacy legs
- Coat (below) - Danier Leather; last worn here last week
As you can tell, the red of the blouse did not photograph well indoors. It's not orange. Looks orange - but it's not. It's red.
I showed it off and twirled for my coworkers.
Such a cool blouse. I'm still boggled that I found L'Wren Scott for only $7.99! Really!
Outerwear - brrr, it's chilly, but that's west coast chilly, not east coast, where it's -15, feels like -25. I can't even conceive of those temps! Right now at 6pm, it's 6 degrees (that's around 45 for you US folks).
- Faux fur scarf/gloves - Parkhurst
- Belt - gift from Mom
- Earrings - c. 1994
- Spinner ring - Twang & Pearl
- Amber ring - c. 1996
Oh, that red is just lovely on you! Gorgeous with the rich browns in the skirt, too.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Julia!Delete
Again another home run! Love the colour palette, deep, rich, and warm. I particularly love the blouse, ruffles look so classic and feminine and gives it that kick of texture. That skirt is pretty fabulous. You look marvelous dahling!ReplyDelete
Aw, thank you, Dar! I love this palette as well.Delete
LOVE this outfit especially the L'Wren Scott blouse! XReplyDelete
Isn't it amazing? Thanks, Jess!Delete

You look gorgeous!
Thanks so much, Monica! Yes, the skirt deserves ALL the adjectives!Delete
I like a floor-sweeper when it comes to a skirt but they're so hard to find.ReplyDelete
I'm super-envious of your 70's mermaid.
It hugs your bum in a feminine fashion and looks FABULOUS!
Aw, thank you, Samantha! I knew it was special when I saw it.Delete
This SKIRT! Looks even better on the flesh and fits so well in all the right places.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Trish!Delete
That mermaid skirt is even more magnificent on! I'm swooning! Your red frilly L'Wren Scott blouse is perfect with it, and so are the belt and shoes. Just stunning, Sheila. You've made my day as your outfit put a smile on my face. xxxReplyDelete
It's amazing, isn't it? Aw, I'm glad to contribute to your mood. :)Delete
Fabulous blouse! You look gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I am loving this skirt on you Sheila! The blouse is perfect with it and it's absolutely stunning on you! :) Definitely a great find!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mica! I love this blouse.Delete
This skirt is a spectacular piece my dear Sheila and it hugs you in the right places. It just fits so well. I can imagine it with a turtle neck and also with a white button down shirt... oh I am soo looking forward to see how else you can wear this beauty.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lorena! I know, I can also see it with those items. I hope I get at least one more wear out of it this winter.Delete
If I remember rightly the mermaid type maxi skirt was big in the early to mid 2000s. I had a colleague who had an amazing array of them in all sorts of colours. It is such a flattering style of skirt.ReplyDelete
Love your blouse with the beautifully patterned skirt. And those shoes...and I love your earrings, too!
Yes, it was big then too, but longer skirts were only for formal dresses - lots of short mermaid styles in the early 00s. This piece is definitely 70s, though. Look at that pattern! I love this style. Thank you, my dear!Delete
What a skirt!!! Such a swoon thing. And indeed those shoes match like they were made for it. (The belt... I have a very similar one. Hardly ever use it. Must create an outfit around it.) I am still amazed by the prices you pay for such good items.ReplyDelete
Isn't it lovely? I'm excited to wear it again. You must wear your belt! I luck out with some of these items, price-wise.Delete
