I absolutely loathed wearing this shirt today (as if the post title didn't give it away).
- Shirt - Frame, consignment; purchased here for $21.00
- Skirt - Max Mara, consignment; last seen here in October 2021 with a plaid oversized blazer

I've been saving this lovely bronze velvet rock-star shirt since I bought it in July, with visions of striding about like a badass in it.
I actually really liked this outfit, aside from the whole Velvet Rage thing.
But I fussed with it all day, to the point where I could not wait to get home and take it off.
Outerwear - in much happier news, today is also the debut of the Eclipse Coat, as I decided to name it. Ta-dah!
It fits like a dream (even with some Velvet Rage issues in the arm regions). I liked the big pockets.

Gold and black bling:
- Necklace - consignment; purchased here for $40.50

Rage, rage, rage against the velvetReplyDelete
Do not succumb to the Velcro’s pull
To co-worker Ngoc it will go
Experience is the best teacher
Spiffy shoes and, regardless of the velvet rage, spiffy looking outfit, though a truly super outfit feels as good to wear as it looks.
I don't know if I've had velvet or Velcro in shirt material. You still make it look fantastic.ReplyDelete
great outfit. Love the combo orange and shiny !ReplyDelete
velvet rage is real...i feel this every time i wear my velvety pjs I get stuck in my sheets.ReplyDelete
This outfit is a real stunner, Sheila, but I am so hearing you on the velvet rage! Such a shame though, as that blouse really looks fantastic. But life's too short for misbehaving clothes, so away it goes to your colleague ... Swooning over your necklace too, and ah, that coat is absolutely sublime! xxxReplyDelete
I can't wear velvet either, it irritates the hell out of me. Luckily the coat is amazing!ReplyDelete
Pretty outfit! You styled it beautifully.ReplyDelete
Even the mask looks stylish and coordinates well with your OOTD!
I especially love the appearance of that gorgeous Max Mara skirt!!!
In spite of the argument, you had with the velvet, I do love the outfit. Velvet crawls and that causes problems when sewing also. Like a caterpillars is reaches and crawls along its fibers.ReplyDelete
I've never heard of "velvet rage" but, of course, you're clear about it.ReplyDelete
I too suffer the velvet rage from time to time. Sometimes you can tell why it was donated. The coat is fab!ReplyDelete
I'll keep wearing skulls year round but I reluctantly let the pumpkins and ghosts retire for the year.
Been there, sworn and bought the tee shirt!ReplyDelete
Such a fabulous rock star of an outfit despite the rage. xxx
It's such a shame that this top was a pain to wear as it's beautiful and looks so good on you! I really like it with the red! Hopefully it works better for your colleague :) And it's good the coat redeemed this outfit for you - it really is so perfect for your cooler weather!ReplyDelete
How DARE the velvet be so difficult! Rude,I call it. Such a shame as it looks amazing!ReplyDelete
The skirt and shoes are super pretty! I like very much!
The eclipse coat is great!
You have certainly got balls!!!x
That is a beautiful coat - I love Welsh Tapestry outerwearReplyDelete
