Today's outfit was planned around these lovely new-to-me shoes, plus an old favourite.
- Shirt - Cartise, consignment; last worn here in April 2018 with pink pants and white shoes
- Trousers - Banana Republic, thrifted; last seen here in September 2018 under a dress
- Shoes - Forever 21, consignment; purchased here in for $12.50
- Jacket (below) - Gap, consignment, Vancouver; last worn here in March
Why do a plain white shirt when you can do something with this level of detail?
Amazing, isn't it? I first bought it here in December 2015 for $24.00, and I've now worn it 8 times.
Plain bores me.
Outerwear - it's bloody windy out!
here with a plain little black dress...which - shocking! - I no longer have).
- Silk scarf - Marc Rozier
Done up. I don't mind the shirt hanging out (it's better than butt-crack-a-lackin'!).
- Gold/amethyst ring - Frances Jewelers, c. 1965, Dad's
- Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop, Florence, Italy
- Earrings - vintage fair
The shirt is beautiful, its unique and I love the textural element. Vibrant pink always rocks in my books. I who doesn't love green pants? Great outfit!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Dar! I love all these bright colours to show off the cool shirt.Delete
I love pink and green together, it's pure Bollywood! Your not-a-jacket blouse is a work of art and I completely understand why you adore your Pank jacket, I do too! xxxReplyDelete
Oh, totally Bollywood, Vix, good call. I love this shirt - it's definitely a keeper - and it's crazy how much I love the pank jacket!Delete
I like the pink and green together, and I am really loving that jacket so very much! :) I need to be more adventurous with my (plain!) green pants. I find green tricky to wear and I'm trying to make more of an effort to wear it but I seem to favour neutrals with it.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mica! Green is a great colour - mix it with your blues if you aren't sure what to do with it. Neutrals are great too!Delete
Pretty shirt. Adorable jacket. Nice mix of colors.ReplyDelete
The shoes are so pretty!!! Love pink and green and all the textures!ReplyDelete
Aren't they? I was so impressed with them. Thanks, Becky!Delete
Love the origami shirt. What a trouvaille.ReplyDelete
Your origami shirt is a show stopper, Sheila! And obviously I'm a big fan of your green trousers. Icing on the cake is your PANK jacket. Pink and green is one of my favourite combinations. Such a cheerful sight and perfect for Spring! Can't believe those shoes are Forever 21. Such exquisite embroidery. xxxReplyDelete
It's an amazing piece, Ann - people love to look at it. Pink and green were meant to go together! I know, I'm boggled at how nice the shoes are!Delete
I think I'm in love with those shoes! Fan tas tic! And what about that blouse? Never seen a blouse like that, very original.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Nancy, me too! Isn't the blouse cool?Delete
The shoes are so pretty! I must say that they seem to be a condensed version of your jacket and scarf!!! The amazing green trousers are my favourite item though. The origami blouse is really pretty too!xReplyDelete
Nice, that's exactly what I was going for, Kezzie, thank you!Delete
Plain bores me too, I absolutely understand the sentiment.ReplyDelete
Your pink shoes are gorgeous, they remind me of something Jeannie would have worn in the 60s.
I had bright pink pants, Jess, and I got rid of them because they were boring! No texture!Delete
Thanks - you mean like in "I Dream of Jeannie"? Love it!
I'm a big fan of pink and green worn together so I think this is an awesome Spring look. Of course, the origami shirt is the star.ReplyDelete
Thank you! Definitely, it's a showstopper!Delete
woww, I totally agree on textures adding a lot of interest!, and you rock textures!. Love your origami shirt, it's a stunning piece, and love the green pants and how you created a green&pink color combo around your new shoes!. Your jacket and scarf totally rock too!ReplyDelete
Textures are my thing! Thank you so much, my dear!Delete
Yay, your pank jacket is indeed very similar to my new yellow one! And those shoes are almost identical to a blue pair I bought last year. Oh goodness what great taste we have Sheila! Oh, and yes, you look fab by the way - it's always a winner that origami shirt xReplyDelete
Aren't they twins?? How funny - what similar tastes we have! Thank you, hon!Delete
Spring has certainly entered your outfits, the closet change is so very evident. This outfit makes me smile and I found a pair of trousers that could easily match the origami shirt. I will post it with the April purchases or if i get to wear it before the end of the month.ReplyDelete
I've been traveling for work and not been around that much :(
It really has! Ooh, I can't imagine what pants like this shirt would look like, but they sound cool. Aw, I hope you are home again soon - I have missed you!Delete
