Thank you all so much for your good vibes - I'm feeling much better today, well-rested, and while I'm not 100%, I am in the 80% range. Which is good enough.
- Turtleneck - Jacob, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in December 2018, over the holidays
- Dress - Romeo Gigli, vintage, consignment; first worn here (3rd outfit) over the November 2018 long weekend, with burgundy accents
- Boots - Ishshoes Chatterbox, Fluevog; last seen here in December 2018 with florals
- Leather coat (below) - Danier Leather, thrifted; last worn here in December 2018
And when you want to feel like you're in a cocoon of comfort, you wear a sweater dress. And a sparkly turtleneck under it.
Second wearing of this lovely wool dark grey dress. It's a gorgeous piece, even with that "Flashdance" neckline (hence the turtleneck - which I did not need for warmth, just coverage).
here just for fun to this listing on 1st Dibs for a similar 80s dress by him, also with really long sleeves, listed for over $2,000! Woo, and mine was only $27.50.
Where have my hands gone? Could they be hiding under these long, long sleeves?
Outerwear - it rained all day today.
- Fur boa - thrifted
- Gloves - Parkhurst
- Belt - vintage, thrifted
- Earrings - thrifted
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
- Sodalite/silver ring - Scotland, 1996
Glad you're feeling better! Love this outfit, I have been wearing my sweater dresses and suede boots quite a lot this winter. You look lovely!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Dar! It was an easy outfit, and that's what I needed.Delete
I am loving all of the blue together! Even when not feeling well, you still manage to look stylish and pulled together! :) I am glad you're feeling better and I hope you're back to 100% soon!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Mica. I'm getting there...wearing a dress is often my go-to when I'm not feeling well.Delete
you do look fab in that - I love the dress and glad you're improving. But how did the velvet boots hold up in the rain? CathyReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Cathy! Oh, I don't wear any of my good shoes outside. These did not see the rain at all.Delete
lovely and comfy outfit!, the sweater dress looks cozy and your belt and boots make it looks elegant and cool too! and love your leather jacket and accessories!ReplyDelete
Glad that you're feeling better!
Thanks, Monica! It was the coziest!Delete
I think this outfit is super, fantastic, gorgeous. Can you tell I am very enthusiastic?ReplyDelete
Now you say it is probably an eighties dress. Are you sure? As the super long sleeves are a thing of very recent years (5 years?) All your blue items thrown in work perfectly. It enhances your figure, elongate you by its length. And the blue leather jacket is so good on it. Especially with the fluffy scarf.
PS Romeo Gigli? I can only dream of such finds.
It's pretty classic - I could see you in this, Greetje. Yes, I'm sure - he was doing this extra-long arm look in 1986. Vogue.com doesn't even have runways shows listed for him - he's not a current label anymore.Delete
Thanks so much! I've found a few vintage Gigli pieces, but this has been the only one that fit me.
You know your stuff so well... Why was I question you🙄?Delete
I do my research, baby! ;=PDelete
The snakeskin reminds me of a bat - obviously, I'm So Here For It! I'm sorry I missed earlier mentions that you were feeling peaked - and definitely glad you're feeling better now. Love that dress - Flashdance neckline and all.ReplyDelete
Ooh, I see that! Thanks so much for the good vibes! I love this dress too.Delete
I wish I had the option you state in your opening sentence!ReplyDelete
Oops, I meant third and fourth sentences.Delete
Yeah, I wish you could just wear a dress, Ally. :(Delete
That sweater dress really has it all. Not only is it gorgeous, it must have comfort factor 10. I could have done with those sleeves the last couple of days. Love how you styled it with that magnificent belt, as well as the addition of blue velvet and bling! xxxReplyDelete
It's wonderful to wear - such nice quality too. I liked the really cinched belt with it - it helped it from overwhelming my frame.Delete
Oh, those boots are so beautiful! What a lovely dress. It would have been perfect for today's weather here - bloody freezing! Loved it with the belt and the blue accessories. Glad to hear you're getting better.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! I love them too. This was a very nice snuggly outfit. I'm getting there...Delete
That belt, besides being stunning, makes your waist look incredibly tiny. Love the hues of blues in this!ReplyDelete
I know, I LOVE that! Thanks, Cynthia!Delete
Wonderful cozy look, perfect for the less than that 100% feeling. Toasty. But also chic and fabulous. The belt, yeah, it definitely cinches the deal (heh). That rain was wicked.ReplyDelete
Oh, most definitely, Mel! Heh, I see what you did there! Rain is...good, but not for shoes.Delete
Oh Romeo ! I also worked for his fragrances ;) Same as Cavalli.ReplyDelete
I am loving the turtle neck peeking out under that beauty .
Did you! How cool. Yup, never thought I would love having a turtleneck! Thanks, Lorena!Delete
Hi Shiela, I love how you added the blue velvet boots and jacket to your outfit- a perfect way to make yourself feel a bit better! XReplyDelete
No better way to beat the blues than to wear the blues, Jess! Thank you.Delete
Oh! Oh! I could) would wear that dress. At least once a week! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ReplyDelete
It's a pretty snuggly dress, that's for sure, Rebecca! Thanks!Delete
