My office is full again; everyone's back from vacation, and there are work events going on in my city and in Vancouver this week. None of this is a surprise to me, but I had to plan around all these VPs and guests popping into the office.
- Sweater - Club Monaco, thrifted; purchased here for $17.95
- Skirt - handmade, vintage, thrifted; last seen here in February 2018 with leopard
- Shoes - Hispanitas; last worn here in December 2018 with my $1,000 sweater
- Coat (below) - Denny Rose, consignment; last seen here in December 2018
Okay, my sweater does have "wings" on the shoulders, that's a bit wacky still. I can't go completely Professional Sheila or people will wonder what's wrong!
The skirt is a little on the snug side. I probably shouldn't eat popcorn and chocolate for dinner too often...
I know we were all squee-ing about how this could go with this dragon skirt, purchased the same day as the sweater, but they didn't get along when I tried them on together.
Outerwear - it's dry, grey and cold. This will do.

I really wanted to!
- Hat - vintage, thrifted in Vancouver
- Fur scarf - Danier Leather, thrifted
- Gloves - Parkhurst
He had to settle for a quick cuddle before I dashed off.
|"What is this small creature you are wearing? It needs a bath."|
Vizzini immediately spotted my fur scarf and tried to lick it to death.
Black and white bling:

- Silver ring - gift from Mom & Dad, c. 1987
I love the white trimmed ruffles at the shoulders and at the hem of that black peplum top and the complementary contrast with the pretty yellow pencil skirt. I also like the red hat and colourful coat - it's a very lovely outfit!ReplyDelete
I like those too - it's the little details that make an item special. Thank you!Delete
Hi Shiela, I find having a unique style is a good conversation starter, I'm sure the new co-workers already think you're fabulous! XReplyDelete
Ha, it really is, isn't it, Jess. :)Delete
I really like that yellow skirt with the fun statement top! I would love more classic bright pencil skirts like this, I don't have anything similar, my plain ones are grey or black.ReplyDelete
They are handy to have in a few key colours, Mica. I think you would get a lot of wear out of a blue one.Delete
I keep imagining you giving a group of new people a tour of the office. Even if you're not totally "crazy Sheila" here, I'm sure that your yellow skirt, winged sweater, spotty shoes and cameo necklace are crazy enough for some people! Crazy in a positive way, of course ;-) I totally love this outfit, and I'll be on the lookout for a winged sweater now. Yours is so cute! xxxReplyDelete
Oh yes, even this outfit is way more dressed up than most people in my office! I love crazy in a positive way, how did you know? ;-PDelete
Reading this on a gray day in NY so seeing your cheery yellow skirt brings a smile. I like this outfit mucho for all the reasons you mention and would easily wear it myself.ReplyDelete
You are very lucky to have reasons to get up and about at work. Aspects of my job have changed whereby most of my teaching is in the space where I am located. This means much less walking around for me and I am struggling with getting myself up and moving enough during wintry school days. Almost contemplating a Fitbit to remind me to move and track my paces...
Aw, glad to hear that, Laurie, thank you! I love being able to move around a lot at work - I could not stand being tied to a chair all day.Delete
I think your new co workers are lucky to have such a stylish woman at the office. I would look forward to see your outfit every day!ReplyDelete
Aw, thanks, Nancy! Some people do come visit me every day to see what I'm wearing!Delete
Very cute outfit and I love your cameo necklace. Your mum has such good taste!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much! She does!Delete
I love this skirt. Its color and design really appeal to me. If I could wear this in public, I'd be a happy camper.ReplyDelete
Thank you, hon! I think you would look smashing in this!Delete
I can see why you love that sweater -it fits perfectly ! Is it just me or does it give off a Star Trek vibe?ReplyDelete
It totally does! I will have to wear it with my communicator badge!Delete
The sweater is wonderful - I like the mini wings and the white piping trim. Your Mom has great taste in gifts!ReplyDelete
I love it too. She does!Delete
