Today I am delighted to wear a treat – a gift from the so-fashionable Sheila of Ephemera! Sheila sponsored a contest around her birthday last month: she challenged us to choose outfits from her closet for her to wear, and she’d select a gift for us in return. How crazy generous is that?! Reverse-birthday, I’d call it.
I chose her Periodic Table of Elements skirt and she wore it. She declared me one of the winners and sent me this gorgeous Kenzie silk skirt and a similarly splendid Ann Taylor silk blouse (to be seen in the near future.) I am totally awed and delighted. Sheila discerned my taste to a tee.
I added an Ann Taylor Loft blouse, thrifted a while ago, and Gianni Bini caramel boots. A woman stopped me in the grocery store tonight just to say “I love your outfit!” Aww, thanks Sheila.
These look great together! And I have to say that your hair looks great in this picture! really soft looking.
Oh, Patti, that skirt looks amazing on you! I love it – and I'm so happy it went to such a good home. It was always too tight on me!
Thanks also for the very kind words. 🙂
Sheila is such an incredible lady. She's become one of my dearest friends and favorite people. That's a lovely skirt, and it looks wonderful on you.
You look lovely here.. the cream works so well with your complextion. Most people would be washed out but you stand out from the outfit.. hard to do!! Great stuff!!
The colors are beautiful on you and your nail polish reflects the flowers on the skirt. Sheila knows what she's doing!
Reverse birthday indeed ! I was a winner too… I am picking up my goods in a few weeks 🙂
Your skirt is beautiful, I am sure you can even wear it as a tube dress with a cardi and a belt on it. The colors are fabulous.
She definitely has a good eye! That is really lovely. Enjoy it!
This outfit is so you. It is feminine and delicate. Neutrals look fabulous on you. It gives you an ethereal look.
Sheila is so cool. I love her looks and I think I should relinquish my "she accessorizes well" title to her. I have a style crush on her.
