H is For Halston, Plus Corduroy and Leopard

It's about time I wore my super-Klassy JC Penney Halston shirt. 
Layering a turtleneck under it was a game-changer.

  • Blouse - Halston III for JC Penney, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here in January 2022 with ORANGE LEATHER SHORTS
  • Skirt - Suvremena Zena, thrifted; first seen here in November 2022 with 90s colours
  • Shoes - Banana Republic, consignment; last worn here in November 2022 with Prada and plaid
  • Coat (below) - Hilary Radley, thrifted; last seen here in December 2022

It also felt groovily appropriate for the late 70s/early 80s vibe of this puffy blouse. 
It's covered in tiny H's - for Halston! This line was produced for JC Penney - it's great quality. 

I loved wearing this thick corduroy skirt again. 
Such a vivid colour. 

Slice of life.
Steaming my scarf in preparation for its first wear.

The Unsafe Ocelot!

I showed off my vintage Celine scarf to my colleague Jessica, who was very impressed and nearly fell over when I told her I paid 97 cents for it. 

  • Silk scarf - Celine, thrifted; purchased here for 97 cents
  • Gloves - thrifted
  • Mask - Lazy Susan's

The stuff: 
I do like my leopard! 

Brassy bling:
Love that necklace. Why yes, I do have balls. 

  • Belt - Talbots, thrifted
  • Necklace - consignment
  • Earrings - Sidney
  • Brutalist rings - vintage mall

Done with the earrings - off you go! 


  1. Loving the earthy tones in your outfit, Sheila. that skirt is fabulous and it's always good to see the Unsafe Ocelot!
    I'm ogling your steamer, I've been meaning to buy one for years and there's so many to chose from my head nearly explodes and I can't decide. xxx

  2. I love that skirt! I have a thing for corduroy and orange always lifts the spirits. I haven't yet found my perfect corduroy skirt, but both you and Ann (Polyester Princess) have featured fabulous examples in your latest posts. x

  3. Definite 70s vibes here, Sheila, and layering a turtleneck underneath takes me right back to some of the outfits I wore back then. Love, love, love the skirt, and very deep pockets are definitely a plus! Loving the pops of leopard, and - obviously - the Unsafe Ocelot! xxx

  4. I really like the combo of that shirt with the skirt together! I don't have any cord in my wardrobe but I do have a bit of orange and it's such a fun colour to wear.
