Ever hit the wall large style?
It was my turn last week so I switched my brain off, slept and read news updates.
In my PJs.
Today I finally got it together to do the Paper Doll Project.
I was paired up with the gorgeous Kelly of My Orange Stilettos, from Wellington, New Zealand.
I asked her to help me style this top and the little honey didn't fail to impress me with her choices.
I bought the 1960s lurex shell top from a flea market for a buck one month ago. What's special about it is it's lined in cotton which is rare. Most of these garments are lined in nylon fabrics which is the equivalent of wearing a sweaty electric blanket. Not ideal for the Queensland climate, even in winter.
Kelly asked me to try out the green kilt with the top and I had one of those "duh why didn't I think of that?" moments.
I had a play around with tights and shoes and decided on thrifted purple tights layered with purple fence-nets and my new VW Melissa flat three straps that the beautiful Suzanne of Idee Fixe picked up for $20 (!!!) at the NYC Melissa sample sale recently.
I couldn't find my leopard-print bag recommended by Kelly, so I chose the gorgeous velvet hat Nelly gave me when she came to visit.
I cannot believe how often I reach for this hat - I love it so much!
The 1930s Persian lamb cape was just right for keeping out the chill:)).
You can hop on over and visit the scrumptious Kelly to see how I styled her beautiful 1960s blue coat.
Hug yourself today:).
