Coral Belle

Back to our normal scheduling - a regular ol' Jammy Dress. 
I wear Jammy Dresses when I don't feel like making much effort. 

  • Dress - Cos, consignment; last worn here in November 2021 with green velvet
  • Sandals - Lucky Brand; last seen here in August 2021 with my lettuce dress

But they have maximum impact! 
Isn't this a cool dress? I love the enormous deep pockets. 

And the bell shape of the skirt. I'm a belle in a bell! 
It's a wee bit mullet-y, isn't it? 

Building colleague Emily was very taken with the shape and structure. 
We both agreed that this is coral, although it does have elements of pink, red and orange. Mix 'em all together, and you get coral. 

Masked up. 
Matching the bits of turquoise in my accessories. 

A silk scarf to keep the sun off my neck. It's still sunny, but now horrendously windy. 

I often reach for this scarf - it has a good mix of colours. 

  • Scarf - Metropolitan Museum of Art, thrifted
  • Mask - Lazy Susan's

The stuff: 
This is a very comfy heel - easy to walk in. 

Blue and red bling:
A ginormous necklace is never a bad thing! 

  • Necklace - thrifted
  • Turquoise/silver ring - Karen's
  • Copper/glass ring - vintage, consignment
  • Bronze/pearl/turquoise/crystal cuff - Myka, consignment
  • Feather copper bracelet - vintage, thrifted
  • Earrings - local


  1. You're no effort is my glam. It's a beautiful dress.

  2. Your blog is a recent and welcome find for me. I have enjoyed looking back through your archive at past outfits and wonderful clothing finds. Your Fluevog shoe collection is a wonder unto itself. I have delighted in your thrift find treasures, appreciated your knowledge of design and construction details, and felt the joy you so evidently express in your thoughtful photos of your daily outfits. It is a joy to dress up and you do it so well. Many thanks for it all!

    1. Thank you so much for commenting, Susan! What a very kind and considered comment it is, too. I'm so glad you enjoy my blog!

  3. The colour and shape of that dress are absolutely stunning, Sheila, and yay for jammy dresses for effortless dressing with maximum impact!
    I've been eyeing that scarf, no wonder you reach for it so often.
    The ginormous necklace is a stunner too, and snake print sandals are on my must have list! xxx

    1. It's such a cool dress - I love the unusual construction, Ann.

      You know a scarf is a winner when you reach for it often.

  4. Well, that is a VERY pleasing outfit. I LOVE the shape of the dresss and the colour! It looks really great on you! You accessorized it really well with the turquoise jewellery and the scarf too!

  5. I like the bell shape. Too many dresses have boring hemlines. And nice color.

    1. I agree! I am limited to shorter strides in this, though.

  6. I definitely got the jammy dress inspiration from you - you have such awesome ones that really look so stylish! :) Missing warmer days when I could just throw on a dress and call it done, haha! Have been living in jeans instead this winter!

    1. Jammy dresses layer really well with scarves, long-sleeved tops and leggings, Mica! See if you can winterize some of your fall/spring ones?

  7. Totally in love with this dress, so fantastic shape and colour!, looking gorgeous!.
    Always admiring all your jammy dresses and totally agree about a ginormous necklace! yay!

  8. Beautiful, just beautiful. The dress, the shoes, the necklace. Well done Sheila.
