Muppet Mohair Skirt Two Ways: Casual Brunch and Christmas Carol

Ah, what a lovely weekend! And I feel like I've spent it wrapped in a cocoon of snuggly pink. 
Gee, I wonder why?!

  • Sweater - August Silk, thrifted; last seen here in September with mod
  • Skirt - Joy Nilsson, thrifted; purchased here for $17.99 last week
  • Booties - Dirty Laundry, thrifted; last worn here (3rd outfit) in November for a casual Winesday

"Is there something around here to eat?"
It's quite a glorious skirt. Magnificent!
"Perhaps the Man will feed me?"
I felt like I was wearing a cozy blanket all day!

Outerwear-ed up.
L and I went for brunch, then hung out at home...until the power went out! It was a very blustery day.

The stuff:
Comfy boots.

Lacy bling:
I love that cuff.

  • Cuff - locally made in Nashville
  • Earrings - Glee

Since the power was out and it was still light, I gathered all the candles and matches and our flashlight just in case.
I also put on my outfit for the evening and did my stair pose, in case the power wasn't back on by dark.

  • Sweater - Adrienne Vittadini, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here in July 2014 with yellow
  • Boots - Marc; last seen here (3rd outfit) last weekend with leather

Fortunately, only 20 minutes before Mom arrived, the power was back! Quickly, reset all the clocks and take pictures - it might go out again!

Mom and I went to the Belfry Theatre's production of "A Christmas Carol" (linking here 'cause I love). We walked down, then had dinner at the pub afterwards. The play was excellent; I always tear up a bit at the end. Ah, perhaps there is good in people after all.
This sweater top hasn't been worn that much - it's a very heavy piece! Each of those silver sections is made of hand-sewn glass bugle beads and silver thread. It's a true work of art!

Bundled up for the wind and chill.
The Unsafe Polar Bear goes with pink very well, I think. My skirt did pick up assorted twigs, burrs and garbage on the walk to and from the play - I'm glad I found out I can wash this, as it's going to need it every other time I wear it!

The stuff:
Easy walking boots!

  • Ring - Soul Flower
  • Earrings - Jacob

I hope you had a warm and snuggly weekend too!

I'm linking up with "Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style, as well as Anne "52 Pick-Up" theme this week - "Reflection/Integration" over at SpyGirl.

I definitely felt visible in my skirt (I was mobbed by 3 of the staff at Floyd's Diner who had to touch and feel my skirt!), and I tried to make both outfits reflect my personality and style, while integrating this crazy statement piece skirt into my wardrobe!


  1. I want to touch your skirt too! You look fab, and I adore that black dressy sweater. xox

  2. That skirt is WILD! Looks great, both ways.
    Thanks for linking!

  3. The danger of snuggly clothes is people want to pet you. Of course I would like a feel as well - that's a truly awesome skirt! Sounds like you had a fun weekend. I'm glad you power is back.

  4. That skirt is just stunning on you Sheila! I was looking forward to seeing how you would wear it and you haven't disappointed - it really goes look magnificent!

  5. Oh wow ... I have not seen anything like it - it looks lovely.
    I can imagine it worn with a snug black turtleneck too.
    Oh and here its warming up even more.. we're about to enter summer.

  6. If I wore that skirt I'd never leave the house it looks soooo snug. But what a fab skirt to wear to the theatre, even if you picked up a few extra bits and bobs along the way!

  7. Oh Sheila, that skirt is divine! I love both ways you've styled it and want to put my name on the ladies in waiting list in case you ever tire of it (highly improbable, I know!) I can just imagine how majestic you felt swishing about in this magnificent maxi (big sigh). You look wonderful and I know the two of you will be very happy together (for a long time).

  8. You know you've found the perfect cold-weather clothing item when it can also double as a blanket. I would definitely want to touch the skirt.

  9. I agree, it is a fabulous skirt. And again those booties... so nice.
