Ah, one more day - I know I can make it. Still feeling low, but that's okay - I know I'll come out of it eventually. I really loved this post here today, by the Bloggess. If you don't know her, give her a shot - she makes me laugh and cry, and I've also enjoyed two of her books very much.*link 'cause I love
- Suit - Part Two; purchased here as separates on the weekend for $49.99 for the trousers and $59.99 for the jacket
- Blouse - Renuar, thrifted; last worn here in March under a corset top
- Shoes - Matisse; last seen here in April with yellow and daisies
And here...is my new suit! Aren't I classy? Hello to Vizzini, who photo-bombed most of my pictures this morning.
|"A black suit? I'm wearing it better."|
I only wore it done up walking to and from work, but it has very nice lines, doesn't it?
The fabric was a dream, very light and flowy.
|"You should try being furry. Very flowy, my fur."|
It did feel like pajamas - I felt like I was cheating. That's not a real suit; it's not stiff and uncomfortable!
Check out my lining - nice piping.
|"All the best cats have white bits."|
I wore the jacket unbuttoned all day. I dressed so that I could take it off if I overheated.
I like this look too, so I will definitely be wearing these as separates. It's important for a suit to be able to have the pieces live separate lives.
It's like a good marriage.
these shoes, but opted for a lower heel and the pattern mix of these brogues instead.
- Brooch - vintage 70s, Mom's
- Belt - thrifted
- Pearl ring - Erth, consignment
- Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop, Florence, Italy
- Earrings - thrifted
And my friends, with that, it's time to slouch off to a quiet evening.

Makes me think of the Delicate Sound of Thunder suit. https://www.hypergallery.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/signed_image/1400x/17f82f742ffe127f42dca9de82fb58b1/P/i/PinkFloyd_DelicateSoundOfThunder_AlbumCoverArtPrint_StormThorgerson_full-width.jpgReplyDelete
Ah, I knew I'd missed an accessory: lightbulbs! Good catch, G.Delete
The bloggess has such a way with words and I love both of her books! I was talking to a friend and when I realised he hadn't heard of her I gave him my copy of 'let's pretend this never happened' right away, required reading I felt!ReplyDelete
I love your suit and it's great it's comfortable! I hope you have a relaxing long weekend and you get to rest and recharge.
Isn't she wonderful? I feel like we would get along in person, that same kind of geeky awkwardness. I have given away my copies of her books too - they need to be shared.Delete
Thank you, Mica! Here's to a chill weekend!
That's one classy suit, Sheila, and I love the pattern mixing with those brogues! And that's the thing with suits, whether they are pant suits or skirt suits, they offer endless possibilities! Wishing you a wonderfully relaxing, and spirit lifting long weekend! xxxReplyDelete
Thanks, Ann! I'm glad I went with a neutral suit vs. a colourful one (those are also fun). Much appreciated, my dear - and wishing the same to you!Delete
Perfect suit! And fabulous shoes! I think you will wear that suit perfectly with colors too! I have vacation now!! Yeah, off to the UK next week!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Nancy! I'll definitely be wearing it with some colour soon. Enjoy your vacation!Delete
Very classy! Loved the suit and the shoes and the white shirt was lovely with it.ReplyDelete
Hope your weekend is going well...
Thanks, Vronni! The skirt is a cream, not white, but same diff. Weekend is nearly over, sigh.Delete
That suit is fabulous, dead klassy (just like you).ReplyDelete
The BBC has been running a series on the menopause lately and although I haven't had any other symptom, there's been a run of a similarly low mood to yours. Hope you start to feel brighter soon and that your long weekend helps. Enjoy! xxx
Dead Klassy, ha! You know it. Yes, moods are up and down - having a peaceful weekend has helped.Delete
This is a fab suit, classy but edgy too!, and I love how you styled it with rocking accessories (the chain, the brooch!) and the fab shoes!. Glad that it's comfy too: Viscose is a lovely fabric to wear!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Monica! I can't wait to style it again soon. Viscose is so sleek.Delete
What a beautiful suit this is Sheila. I agree with the lines are fine and the fabric looks very beautiful. I love your analogy about marriage. Thank you for recommending that blog!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Elle. Glad you enjoyed the blog - it's one of my favourites.Delete
I don't wear suits, but if I did, they would have to be like that one - comfy, yet stylish, and both pieces able to lead fulfilling, single lives (like any good relationship). I've been following Jennie's blog for ages, and have read her books. She is one my favourite people I've never met.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry you're still feeling low. I had a shaky March and April, and fortunately, it seems to have passed, and I hope you will feel lighter soon.
I haven't worn them much in several years, but it's fun to go back and do a suit again after so long. Jenny is amazing, I knew you'd know her.Delete
Thanks, Shelley. I hope your world gets brighter soon! Not long till June!
Stunning suit Sheila ! and I totally agree, they need to live separate lives ;)ReplyDelete
You know it, Lorena. I'll definitely be wearing them with other separates.Delete
Cool threads! The suit is totally fab and of course it can lead separate lives. BTW your butt looks very pert in these trousers!ReplyDelete
Ooh, double thanks, Anna! Pert, eh? Go, me!Delete
