Fancy Friday: Disco Vest, Boss Pants and the Six Foot With Skulls

Happy Friday, my friends! For today's Fancy Friday, I felt like being ultra-sparkly. 
Disco vest!  

  • Blouse - Bird by Juicy Couture, thrifted; last worn here in September with leather and copper ruffles
  • Vest - Nygard, thrifted, Sidney; last seen here in December 2020 for a visit to the periodontist (a great outfit!)
  • Trousers - Red Valentino, consignment; first worn here in April with Gaultier
  • Shoes - Enneagram Individualist, Fluevog; last seen here in April with angora and houndstooth
  • Coat (below) - Sarmite Wearable Art, consignment; purchased here yesterday for $200.00

If I'd been with an office full of people, I probably would have worn a jacket to hide the utterly boring back. 
Yes, because I'm not ever seen from the rear - don't bother putting anything there!

I noticed in the elevators that it made disco ball reflections, so I danced every time I had to run an errand. It made me feel happy. 
Two gents from the 12th floor joined me, and I also boogied with my Purolator delivery dude, and the security guard. Spreading a little disco joy. 

This is the first time I've worn my vintage slip-pants that I thrifted from the here Patch in August. I paid $14.95 for them. 
They were perfect under these wool trousers. They kept me warm and my pants didn't crease as much. LOVE.

Masked up. 
After work, I did some of my Christmas shopping. I'm done now, except for a few more things for L, which I'll do on the weekend. 

Outerwear - of course, I could not resist wearing my Six Foot coat...and my Alexander McQueen scarf also gets it very first wearing. 
I feel like a boss in the trousers, and totally large and in charge in this outfit while I shopped. 

It had many admirers and was a joy to wear - warm and soft. I think the black sections are cashmere and the pink is wool - they definitely feel like it. 
I did have my white Doc Marten on (I don't wear good shoes out in the weather). 

I'm visible in the gloom too. 
Can't miss me! 

I hadn't worn the scarf as it's very much in my spring/summer wardrobe colours - I'm sure I'll wear it a ton then. 

  • Scarf - Alexander McQueen, consignment; purchased here for $125.00
  • Beret - Club Monaco, thrifted
  • Gloves - consignment
  • Mask - by Mom

The stuff: 
The blue buckles on these shoes match the blue blouse exactly, and these were a perfect match for the coat. Yay, matchy! 

Bold bling: 
Isn't that massive black brooch perfect on the coat?

  • Brooch - vintage fair
  • Silver earrings - Brenda Schoenfeld, 1992, vintage mall
  • Lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes

I'm off for the weekend - this is our last quiet-ish one of the year. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend - I'll be back on Sunday with tales of adventure! 


  1. Slip pants?! I've never even heard of such a garment. I'd wear them in a New York minute. :)

  2. You are a vision even for shopping. I need to invest more in myself. That coat was made for you 100%.

  3. Disco-tastic! I bet the reflection in the lift was mesmerising, I think I';d have found excuses to keep riding it all day long.
    How fab is the back (and the front!) of the coat!
    Have a fabulous weekend, my lovely friend. xxx

  4. Fantastic outfit, Sheila! No wonder people were inclined to boogie with you. I love all the pops of hot pink, and that coat is even more stunning on! I think I need a pair of slip-pants now, how utterly frivolous! Have a great weekend, my dear! xxx

  5. I love seeing how you've worn that scarf for the first time! It is a great pop! And I really like the fact that you danced around in your sequins - just such a fun outfit! :)

  6. A seriously cool outfit from top to bottom.

  7. Haha, those slip pants are great! I would wear them under a tulle skirt too be seen. That best is fantastic! Night fever night fever....

  8. Wow.. that coat is a big statement. Love it! x

  9. The "Six-Foot" coat is one of the nicest wool coats I've ever seen, and the way the pink panels are places, you definitely look six feet tall! A great score.

  10. Pettipants!!! I've never seen them that long; they're fantastic.

  11. Three massive cheers for garments and outfits that not only spark joy but to so to the point that we cannot help but dance with glee.

    PS: Slip pants are the best!!!

  12. Woww, so fabulous to see your new coat 'in action', You Rock It!. Love your bossy pants and the amazing slip pants (cute&comfy!), love the way your shoes match the coat, and love the disco sparkliness!

  13. The Six Foot Coat is a thing of beauty - and sparkles definitely cheer up every day.
