My colleague Sheila (I know, I work with another Sheila!) exclaimed with glee when she saw me. "Get up and let me see this!" She loved all the brooches I wore - why wear one when you can wear three? Nothing exceeds like excess!

I remind myself, "They are just THINGS," and I (try to) move on. I grabbed Vizzini for some Purr Therapy when I got home, and felt better.
I think this is one of my favourite combinations so far! Definitely inspired by the multi-brooch approach. And what a fantastic skirt. I love to see your marvellous finds!ReplyDelete
And what a pain about the lost earring! :(Delete
I love this outfit - and yes the brooch grouping is just perfect! the skirt is stunning too. So sorry to hear about your earring though! :( I like your way of looking at it - I'd be pretty upset if I lost one of my earrings still though! Cuddles do make everything better :)ReplyDelete
You are like a fabulously sparkly Xmas tree in that stupendous skirt!ReplyDelete
What a shame about the earring. I know it's only stuff but it's still so annoying, isn't it? I'll offer up a prayer to the secondhand shopping gods to send you an ever more fabulous pair of earrings very soon! xxx
Whoa! I was going to say the same thing as the elevator gents -- you definitely look like a Christmas tree. (Must be the ruffled skirt.) Perfect choice for the holidays!ReplyDelete
The brooch groupig is the bomb. I particularly admire the pinwheel. You look festive and lovely.ReplyDelete
I didn't guess correctly, but it just had to the lah-MAY ruffled skirt, obviously! And yay for double ruffles! Love the triple brooches too. Not sure if I'd like it if I was likened to a Christmas tree, though :-)ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about the earring, and hey, it might be stuff, but it's allowed to be sad about losing stuff, surely. xxx
Maybe the earing will show up. You are a stunning vision in silver.ReplyDelete
You look delightful as always. I've fallen terribly behind in my reading/viewing of your posts but I'm determined to get caught up even though I've started with today's. And IMHO, you can never wear too many brooches. One year, I pinned all of my snowflake ones onto a denim vest and wore it for a holiday party.ReplyDelete
Vizzini might be jealous of that hat as it resembles a small British Blue kittie all curled up!ReplyDelete
That skirt is aaaa-maa-zing! You reallly do look like a Christmas tree and I love the excess of brooches! It's so nice to wear multiples!x
So Fabulously Sparkly, love this skirt and love your brilliant accessorizing (in every possible meaning!), totally agree that three brooches are Better!ReplyDelete
sorry that you lost an earring, so disgusting!
Not only is that majestic silver skirt stunning, but so is the entire chicer-than-chic ensemble.ReplyDelete
This my kind of colour palette to no end - be it during December or at any other point in the year.
Big hugs & the happiest of 4 x Christmas Eve wishes!

PS: IMO, one can pretty much never have or wear too many brooches. :)
Oh, how annoying to lose an earring! Is it worth keeping a lookout on Ebay for a replacement? I know Vix says everything turns up on there eventually.ReplyDelete
That skirt is so festive, it's lovely.
