Vintage Pierre, Christian and a Bedsheet

Thursdays feel like my Fridays now, with the extra hours I put in at the second WW meeting I do. It's a good feeling when all the tough stuff is over - bring on the weekend!
I felt smashing in this outfit all day. I am a fan of pattern matching and who knew red and white polka dot was a neutral?

  • Jacket - Desigual by Christian Lacroix, consignment; last seen here in February with orange
  • Top - Bordeaux, consignment; purchased here for $18.00
  • Skirt - vintage 80s Pierre Cardin, thrifted; purchased here for $24.00
  • Shoes - Marc; last seen here earlier this month with all the condiments

I am quite smitten with this jacket. Jacket, thou hast smote me. I wore it as outerwear (it looks wonderful done up - pic in the link up there), and also wore it in the office as my topper when I got chilly.

So much amazing!
This the first wearing of the fabulous vintage Pierre Cardin skirt, which I bought with the spectacular Melanie of Bag and a Beret. I stroked the sleek silk all day - it didn't even wrinkle! I loved the long sinuous cut of it, although it doesn't look right with flats - needs a heel.

First wear for this white blouse as well. Yes, I'm having a white blouse thing right now.
"What's in here that I can destroy?"
Note the lopsided shoulders. I really liked how it draped - it reminded me of bedsheet togas (not that I know anything about that, heh).

The stuff:
Wonderful red shoes. This is the kind of heel I can wear. Keepers.

Red and blue bling:
I love all these pieces.

  • Earrings - local
  • Red ring - Oscar & Libby's
  • Swirly ring - Scotland, 1996
  • Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes

I'm off to the ballet tomorrow night! What are you doing this weekend?


  1. I want everything you're wearing! Especially the shoes, jacket and skirt! Melanie brought you some good luck I see.

    I've been looking for some heels in red that I can actually walk in for more than 5 minutes. Where did you buy these?


  2. Suzanne, I got them on clearance at Footloose in downtown Victoria for about $199. They had the plain red version (no strap, no patent) recently. They're by Marc; you might be able to find them online. Beware the sizing; mine are marked a 7 but I really wear a 9.5!

  3. Great shoes. I'd strap these babies to my feet!

  4. Love this whole look - from your fab hair to those HEELS, yum. xox

  5. Of course red with white polka dots are a neutral, LOL! Fabulous outfits...fabulous coat, dress, shoes, get my drift, yes? You look awesome! Happy Weekend!

  6. Definitely so much amazing here! I can well understand why you are smitten with the jacket, I would be too, and it really works with the polka dot skirt. When I see shoes like those red ones it makes me sooooo sad I can't wear heels anymore.

    Might be going to an art opening tonight, and two more tomorrow night, so it's an art-filled weekend for me.

  7. I am all for this look.
    The pretty skirt, the drapey blouse and the fun jacket.
    Well I am currently stuck in the El Salvador airport .. i hope to be home tomorrow.

  8. Beautiful combination, Sheila, very inspiring! The jacket is a masterpiece, and the shoes are marvelous... again! :)

  9. Swoon worthy jacket. Love those shoes too. The strap is extra funky and awesome. I didn't know Lacroix did Desigual!

  10. That jacket, that skirt, those shoes...all so pretty but so awesome together!


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
