Dragons for the Dentist...and a Special Guest

Just home from the periodontist, and my face is half-frozen and I need to lie down. 
 You get short post!

  • Sweater - Dalkeith, vintage 60s, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) in November 2018 with velvet and gold
  • Skirt - Blind Faith, thrifted; purchased here for $19.99
  • Shoes - Channi B; last seen here in October with different dragons and more velvet
  • Coat (below) - Stop Staring!, thrifted; last worn here in December 2018

A pretty simple classic look. The solid colour of the top (matching the shoes, of course) focuses on the patterned skirt.
 And it's all comfy enough to sit in a chair for 2 hours, loopy and dozing off under a blanket, while the very nice lady scrapes my teeth.

I do love the happy pill and the mouthful of freezing I get. Could not do it without!
 The skirt did well for its first wearing. It billows well when going down stairs, I am pleased to report.

Thinking about teeth.
 Not happy thoughts.

Outerwear - the weather called for snow flurries mixed with rain. This coat is not warm enough.
 However, I wasn't outside for long between bus stops and Mom's car, so I am just being a mopey whiner.

  • Fur boa - thrifted
  • Gloves - Parkhurst

The stuff':
 These shoes always get strong reactions. They are so pretty. I like that the pink leather lining peeps out a bit (so I did pink lipstick to match).

Buggy bling:
 I pinned my scarab brooch to the sweater. I feel like it had been neglected.

  • Chain bracelet - thrifted
  • Hematite bracelet and ring - thrifted
  • Earrings - Glee
  • Bug brooch - Le Chateau

My mom had to pick up my youngest niece, Sidney, from ballet(? I'm a little foggy on the details) class, and she wanted to peek in my closet.
 Striking a pose with Monster Vest and the fringed boots. I might have to do this look soon!

And then with the velvet ball cap and the Yeti Coat.
Monster Vest liked her more. I let her keep the ball cap.


  1. You are clearly inspiring the next generation of dressers!

  2. Kid's got a good eye.

    Sometimes there's just nothing more fun than floofing down the stairs in a flouncy dress like a modern Scarlett O'Hara.

    1. Yup, she went right for the furry things! I do love to flounce about - it makes one's day brighter.

  3. The dragon skirt looks absolutely perfect with the matching teal jumper and shoes! Love your bling too! Not so keen on the dentist, though. But your niece Sidney surely has what it takes! xxx

  4. How adorable is your niece in that fabulous closet of yours! Lol, glad you like the dentist, I think I need that happy pill. Love the skirt. Always good to summon a dragon ! Happy mid week!

    1. Isn't she cute? I like that my periodontist caters to my needs. I can handle it.

      Thanks, Elle, happy mid-week to you!

  5. I love your skirt, hope your teeth calm down, and think your niece looks fab!!!

  6. I'd love to go for a walk through your closet too! X

  7. Your nice has style my dear Sheila!
    and I can see why you want to wear the Star Trek sweater with the dragon skirt. It would make a perfect pairing.

    1. She's a cutie. Yeah, I thought so too, but it didn't look right.

  8. Your niece has some mad stylin' skills! The sweater/skirt combo may be simple, but I really like this outfit. I love a skirt that billows when you walk. Hope your mouth feels better now!

    1. Wait till I teach her how to shop! Thanks, Shelley - billowing is always good. Much better now, thank you.

  9. love your dragon skirt, and I think you've worn a perfect ensemble to go to the dentist, feeling comfortable And fabulous is very important in this kind of situations!. Your shoes and accessories are absolutely lovely (as usual!!)
    And I love the pics of your nice trying on some of your clothes! so cute!

    1. It's paramount for me. Going to the dentist is so stressful! My niece is such a cutie.
