Disco Bubble Cocoon

I owe part of today's post title to colleague Chris. 
"You're just a 60s disco bubble!" he gushed. 

  • Top - Zara, consignment, Vancouver; first worn here in April 2023 with a top layered underneath
  • Leggings - Zara, consignment; first seen here in April to see a movie
  • Boots - Powerhouse Jyoti, Fluevog; last worn here in April with art-inspired pieces
  • Coat (below) - Cache, consignment; last seen here in March

I didn't have the heart to remind him that disco was the 70s. 
"You snarked it in your head. Also, let me in the hallway."

I have been poking around in my closet to find the "just worn once" items and getting them into another outfit, like this cocoon top I picked up on the 2023 version of our Anniversary Trip to Vancouver. 

It doesn't seem like over a year since I last wore it! I changed up how I styled it quite a lot (a refresher here if you missed the link above) - I have just a camisole on here, plus I left the cocoon untucked to show its full glory.
"Did you know it was stuck to your bum? HALLWAY."

I paired it with these shiny snakeskin-textured leggings, after considering tights for about two seconds. This is not a dress! 

The colours in the top are black, dark purple, caramel and red (I know, it looks orange indoors - the Stair Pic is accurate). 
The arm-holes are odd, with one in the front and one in the back, which causes much twisting and billowing. I worried about catching it on a door in the office, but it didn't happen. 

The weather is swinging wildly these days. It was cold and windy in the morning. 
Incognito in leopard, heh heh. I totally blend in. 

I didn't show the red lining the last time I wore this light coat. There you go. 
"No one cares."

Vizzini, you are so grumpy in your old age! He did "escape" into the hallway, by the way - I indulge him and let him think he's still spry and quick (which he is). 

The stuff: 
I went for a walk mid-day to return some catering platters. I enjoyed striding about downtown in my billowy cocoon and these glorious red boots. 

Copper bling: 
I did wear copper with my cocoon again - it goes so well! 

  • Copper necklace - vintage 60s, consignment
  • Copper ball bracelet (sold with a matching necklace) - vintage 60s, vintage expo
  • Copper/enamel bracelet - Matisse by Renoir, vintage 60s, vintage expo
  • Shiny copper ring - Glee, local
  • Copper ball ring - vintage, consignment
  • Earrings - vintage expo


  1. I think I'd like to live in a 1950s disco bubble!
    that cocoon top is so fabulous, I love everything about it. The heels on your boots are wonderfully architectural.
    Naughty Vizzini sneaking off like that. xxx

  2. This is one 'helluva' outfit - love it! :) With the coat totally awesome. Lise

  3. Wow! What an outfit.

    In the immortal words of KC and the Sunshine Band,
    That's the way, u-huh u-huh,
    I like it, u-huh u-huh.
    That's the way, u-huh u-huh,
    I like it, u-huh u-huh. :)

  4. Funky, fun and flattering, not to mention interesting! You carry it off splendidly! I do not recollect the previous cocoon outfit (was so sure you’d provide a link :)). And I admire your copper bling.
    Cheers, Laurie

    1. Thanks so much, Laurie! You know I link back in the "last worn here" section, right? Click the word "here" in the list under the Stair Pic.

    2. Egads how did I miss that link! Thanks. :)

  5. You're so cool! I love how you just make joy from your closet.

  6. That's one groovy outfit, Sheila, and the boots and copper bling are absolutely perfect with it! xxx

  7. Beautiful black, red and orange tunics. I love this outfit so much.
    The red boots are a work of art.
    I love the unique design of the heels.
    Red and black is always a winning combo.
