You can always tell when I'm feeling lowest of the low - I wear the brightest brights.
I realized as I rushed out the door this morning - I forgot to take my Stair Picture! I put my shoes back on when I got home in the evening (tired, sweaty) and did it.
- Cardigan - Banana Republic, consignment; purchased here for $49.00
- Top -AWear, vintage 90s, thrifted; first worn here in June with neon tweed
- Trousers - Long Tall Sally, consignment; last seen here in September with bold poppies
- Shoes - Super Fine Cardinal, Fluevog; last worn here in August with Dress of a Thousand Nipples
Yellow is my Mental Health Colour - it always cheers me. I look pained here...6:30am is so early...
I had tons of compliments from people while wearing this - I voted in our civic/city elections today and, as with my Covid jabs, I dress for the volunteers who have to deal with the general public.
"Ma'am, that's a great colourful outfit," said the young produce manager at the grocery store after work.
Cardigan off and posing all fashion-y (with my cardigan's tag hanging out, klassy, Sheila).
- Scarf - Alexander McQueen, consignment
- Mask - Lazy Susan's
The mask pattern is spiders and webs. And glitter!
Gold shoes are so useful. Cat refers to these as "Mrs. Fluevog's shoes," as his wife Ruth was wearing this style when I had John Fluevog sign a pair of my shoes back in 2019, enjoy here, pic of her here. We're Shoe Twins!
Well, now I have a Shoe Triplet! I have been a long-time reader (since around 2007) of Go Fug Yourself (link here 'cause I love them and love seeing what all the famous people are wearing; all links 'cause I love, of course).
As I was browsing the slideshow of the "Hocus Pocus 2" red carpet (here), I found this picture of actor Doug Jones.here):
- One of the Gentlemen from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- Abe Sapien from the early Hellboy movies
- Characters (like the monster with the eyeballs in its palms) from Pan's Labyrinth
- The water creature in The Shape of Water
- Saru on Star Trek: Discovery
- The Baron on What We Do In the Shadows
Ha, that gives you a very good idea of the type of movies and TV I enjoy! Anyway, I am TICKLED to have Doug Jones as a Shoe Triplet! It's likely that he became aware of Fluevogs...because John Fluevog designed the boots worn by all of the Starfleet officers on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (link here).
- Belt - thrifted
- Brass Brutalist rings - vintage 70s, vintage mall
- Gold Brutalist pendant - Robert Larin, vintage 70s, vintage mall, gift from L

Well firstly happy birthday, and secondly thank you I am now waiting on the delivery of my new Fluevog star trek boots in grey. Your birthday but I bought myself a present!ReplyDelete
Ooops sorry that should read Lynette from Melbourne Australia, not anonymous.Delete
What a cheery outfit and a brilliant match with your McQueen scarf!ReplyDelete
Pan's Labyrinth is one of my all time favourite films, you are in good company! xxx
I've been feeling lowest of the low as wall, so thank you for wearing this brightly coloured outfit to cheer me up. That's one brilliant outfit, by the way! How fabulous to have found a shoe triplet; I'm loving that brutalist pendant very much. xxxReplyDelete
I had no idea John Fluevog went beyond designing shoes and accessories for his stores!ReplyDelete
I love your outfit; your color therapy is giving me my daily dose of happiness medicine. :-) Am oogling your top, and the entire ensemble is the perfect spirit-raiser. Mmmm :-)
Continue with the enjoyment of your BIRTHDAY WEEK!
Bigs hugs and cheers, Laurie
Belated birthday greetings, Sheila!ReplyDelete
Look at you providing a public (colour) service. Fabulous combination of colours and I adored the yellow cardigan; I could almost feel the snuggliness. Fab shoes and bling. too.
I am loving these bright together on you! I always find colour boots my mood but I don't wear it nearly often enough! I need to wear orange and yellow together more often!ReplyDelete
Weird that we don't hear or see much of Fluevog here. The heels are always so appealing. I would definitely comment on your outfit when I would see you in reel. Its not often that I admire other women's looks on the streets here. It's all jeans and sweaters, boring.ReplyDelete
You look like sunshine!!!ReplyDelete
Ah, it's lovely and cheery. Colour really does make people happier. The kids really liked all my bright pops of red yesterday.
The Fluevlogs are so cool! You've reminded me to get my Bronze laceups out! Kezzie x
Oooh Doug Jones' jacket is to die for! Those shoes are fabulous, how awesome to be shoe triplets!ReplyDelete
Very good outfit.ReplyDelete
Great outfit, always lovely yellows and bright colours but sorry you're feeling low!ReplyDelete
Those pics of your 'shoe triplet' have put a smile on my face, I'm now admiring this actor (a huge fan of Abe Sapiens!). And also admiring the Star Trek boots designed by Mr.Fluevog himself, they rock!!
What a shoe triplet to have - Doug Jones has been in so many fantastic films and programmes.ReplyDelete
I hope the colours keep cheering you and everyone else up - winter can be such a grey time.
