It's still really cold out, but at least we've seen some sun lately. Can you tell I am ready for spring?
- Coat - Paparazzi, thrifted in Vancouver; last seen here in December 2018 with a red shirt and blue velvet boots
- Shirt - J. Crew, thrifted; purchased here for $19.99
- Skirt - handmade, vintage; thrifted; last worn here in January with black and white ruffles
- Shoes - Pilgrim Truths, Fluevog; last seen here in December 2018 with a super-shiny brocade jacket
- Sleeveless coat (below) - Only, thrifted; last worn here a week ago
I planned this outfit around the new-to-me polka dot shirt - it's fairly thin and slightly see-through, so I wanted to layer it under a jacket.
I actually added the accessories next - I really wanted to wear my bow-tie with the shirt - then picked this luscious embroidered black denim jacket next.
The shoes were chosen last - I would have worn red heels, but my toe said, "Nope, not yet, please!"
|"Stop blathering and let me in the hall, Woman!"|
I'm coughing after telling Vizzini to shut up - he is a yowler, that one!
Outerwear - it was frigidly windy all day.
|"What's in this bag that I can eat?"|
I was happy to have my cashmere beret and furry scarf.
- Beret - Club Monaco, thrifted
- Fur scarf - thrifted
- Gloves - consignment
When I got home from work, I thought I'd take a picture of my necklace layered over my bow-tie, which I was quite taken with (but no one at work mentioned).
|"You should feed me. NOW."|
Cats are so helpful.
- Bow-tie - John Comfort for Harry Rosen, vintage, thrifted
- Necklace - Club Monaco

I totally love the cute bow-tie with the massive necklace, you created a brilliant accessories combo! and love how nicely your bow tie matches your shoes! matching fabulousness!. Your yellow skirt totally enhances everything!. And your embroidered jacket makes my heart beat faster.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Monica, I was very pleased with all my matchiness!Delete
The bow tie and necklace combo are fab, love them! That jacket is pretty damned special.ReplyDelete
Nothing is more Spring-like than primrose yellow, even if the weather isn't playing nice - come over here, it's gorgeous!
Cats are so helpful, aren't they? Especially when they decide it's getting up time an hour and a half before the alarm is due to go off...arghhhh! xxx
Thanks, Vix! Agreed, the jacket was worth every penny. Oh, I am so envious of your weather! It's sunny but brrrr, so cold here!Delete
Ha, yes, such helpful creatures. Mine also wakes me up early. Lovely little monster.
I am surprised that no one commented on the necklace and bow tie - I was so impressed by how well you layered them together! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mica! I knew you guys would get it.Delete
Nothing beats a bit of yellow to trick one's mind into thinking Spring is around the corner! Well, it is actually Spring here in Belgium, such gorgeous weather. I love how you added the red polka dot bow tie AND the massive chain necklace to the blouse, and I'm quite surprised nobody remarked on it! Wearing red shoes really balances your outfit, and your embroidered jacket is quite an eye-catcher. Just fabulous! xxxReplyDelete
Yes, yellow is a magic colour that way, isn't it, Ann? I am envious of your weather - stop bragging! ;-PDelete
I really liked the necklace/bow-tie combo - maybe it was too much for my colleagues.
This is such a colorful, cheerful and fun look. It's pure magic She!ReplyDelete
I see you have wasted no time and basically wore all you got during your recent thrift.
Thanks, Lorena! Yup, snuck in a wear of everything, I think. :)Delete
You're in all four primary colours if you include your blue ring! I love this outfit. The jacket is beautiful, just beautiful. The yellow skirt and red shoes are lovely contrasts and the pin striped shirt is a classic. Loved it with the bow tie and the big chain necklace. I also really like your sleeveless vest outer wear and beret.ReplyDelete
Hope it begins to warm up soon for you...
Thanks, Vronni! Actually, there are only 3 primary colours (yellow, red, blue). Green is a secondary colour (made of blue + yellow).Delete
I love this jacket too! The shirt is actually polka dots (you might need a new monitor if you are seeing pinstripes!).
Me too! I'm done with winter!
What a stunning outfit! The colors go together beautifully. Love the massive chain necklace and that coat is absolutely incredible awesomeness!!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I've had the necklace for ages, and nearly forgot about it.Delete
So into the layered necklace/bow tie!! Loving the black and white polka dot shirt and yellow skirt---so flattering and eye-catching!!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Becky, I really liked it too! I greatly enjoyed this outfit.Delete
How wonderful you look despite frigidly windy weather. That goldenrod skirt is so yummy and I really like the polkadots. I was surprised to read that that embroidered jacket is denim.ReplyDelete
Nonetheless this is a lovely outfit and certainly these colors should warm up the winter doldrums.
I’m glad you voted and opted to keep your feet comfortable. Yay, toes!
Aw, thanks so much, Elle! Yes, the jacket is a really thick dark denim, almost a twill weave. It has good stretch too. I'm so glad I got it. Yes, going more and more for lower heels these days. My feet are happy!Delete
The coat as always is the star of the show for me Sheila. I love the ornate embroidery and also love how you've styled it up. The goldenrod skirt works brilliantly with it as do those shoes - how comfy they look too! The huge necklace is awesome - what was up with your co-workers today that they didn't praise you for this magnificent neckwear? Pah!ReplyDelete
Yes, it's a scene-stealer for sure! I don't know, they must have all been too dazzled by the coat!Delete
I love how you chose to wear yellow to brighten up your Monday.
Your embroidered coat is just divine. X
You're so creative with your outfits! I love the yellow and well all of the colours you have! It goes so well together.ReplyDelete

Thanks, Radka. I am not interested in growing comments from readers who don't actually read my blog (and vice versa).Delete
Strange, I was sure I commented on this post. LOVE the jacket. Love it.ReplyDelete
I know I didn't see a comment before! I blame Google!Delete
That embroidered coat is one of my fave pieces in your wardrobe!ReplyDelete
Same here, it's a gorgeous piece.Delete
