Don’t you love a little tough edge with a feminine outfit? Me too. And all gray and black (like Gracey did here) can be exciting too – our colors can come shining from within. A bright scarf would also work nicely, or a red bangle.

I love wearing the thrifted gray shift dress (similar) for both casual and dressy days. I think today it’s a mix: gray thrifted pearls (sim), a faux-leather moto vest (sim), gray opaque hose (sim) and black calf-height boots (sim). This is not a look for my days working at the thrift store (I always get dirty), but great for a date with Sandy.

I love outfits that combine hard and soft and you do it so well. Thanks for the linkup. I’m late! But I can’t miss this weekly ritual.
Oh wow, you look so cool, or should I say, hot! Luv that moto vest. I’m just making a red one, jacket that is. But I’m stalled on having to order all the little metal zippers for the pockets and such. Hoping to look half as cool/hot as you, dear Patti.
Thats is such a charming and cool outfit Patti. Love the leather vest with and an the slightly blurred picture too! xo Sabina
Patti that vest is fabulous! I especially love it paired with the dress.
Patti l love the pairing of that wiastcoat with these pearls – so funky! Thanks for the link up again x

Loving the leather vest! Perfect color combo !
I really enjoyed both outfits, Patti – yours and Gracey’s. Great casual chic!
Oooh Patti, sassy much!!! Sassy and classy!!!
I love an edgy outfit! This is great Patti, and the contrast of feminine pearls is perfect! Great look 🙂 hugs xxx
I always feel bad ass when I wear leather. I bet you do too 🙂
Oh Patti – I so nearly broke my not buying it pledge today for a blue dress similar to yours! You’ll be glad to know I resisted!
I love your outfit and the moto vest is the icing on the cake. Lovely.
Cool outfit! You wear it well. It’s perfect for going out to have some shots of tequila and a lobster dinner. (Hey, that sounds like a good combination!) Rock on, Patti!
Oooh, I love your jacket (it looks very Clara Oswald!!!!). Yeh, I kind of hate your ‘cold spell’! Lucky you are so lovely, you are forgiven!!x
Oh yes, this is a great look. Everything, from vest to boots. And of course the pearls. I love pearls. I don’t wear them enough (and they only get better by wearing them).
Absolutely, a little edge is always that little extra something. You look fabulous, this vest is gorgeous. Love, Kirsten xx
That is one amazing vest! Plus I’m a lover off all things gray/black .. I just seem to gravitate towards it … even when I’m trying to shop for color 🙂
Oh I’m swooning over that moto vest! Looks uber cool on you Patti! Fierce! Great touch with the grey pearls.
The perfect combination – pearls & moto!!!
Oooh! Love that vest! Very chic! The addition of the pearls really mixes it up.
I’m so glad to see you wearing nylons with those boots—I think it looks fab—not matter what the young kids say!! What a great outfit! jodie
Love the edge mixed with the femininity! Such a gorgeous look.

Oh, yes! Mixing masculine with feminine is a winning strategy, especially with motorcycle-themed pieces.
