Sweater Weather, Part Deux

Breaking news. You don’t get to wear thick, heavy garments in Houston because the big chill simply doesn’t make an appearance in this part of the world. So, for the most part, the closest we come to wearing sweaters are those of the Cotton, Jersey or Silk variety. Given a choice (and ample wallet), here are the ones I’d very happily sport to stay toasty. Red Cropped Sweater, H&M $50 Crew-Neck Sweater, Old Navy $28 Dutch Floral Cropped Sweatshirt, J.Crew $75 Wool Intarsia-Knit Wolf Sweater, Christopher Fischer $295 Sweater With Faux Leather Sleeves, Zara $40 Striped Polar Bear Sweater, Forever 21 $19.80 Cashmere Raglan Sweater, Charter Club $120 That red cropped number is calling me like a siren song. And I have such a thing for animal prints. Oh oh oh that piece with the faux leather sleeves? SO Sheela!!! Which is your fave?   Love, Sheela

Sweater Weather

Noticed how I named this post, “Sweater Weather”? In deference to the fact that Houston does not have a sweater-friendly climate. It just doesn’t. But but but, if it did?  These would be on my list of absolute must-have sweaters. Yes, indeed. Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, Intarsia Sweater $335Maison Martin Margiela, Open Knit Sweater $870 Markus Lupfer, Hook A Duck Sweater $375 Karl Lagerfeld, Nora Sweater $395 Reed Krakoff, Leather Paneled Cashmere Sweater $1,290Moschino, Silk Appliquéd Wool Sweater $925 Is it sweater weather where you are? Or is the air-conditioner still a-cranking despite it already being October?   Love, Sheela

Hello There, Old Friend

It’s good to see you again.  Been a while, hasn’t it?  (Almost) precisely a year, I believe. It’s good having you back, Fall.  I’ve missed you. How’s your start to my favourite time of the year coming?   Love, Sheela Outfit Credits Cardigan – Zara, Top – Michael Kors, Faux Leather Panel Leggings – Babooshka Boutique, Boots – Bakers, Vintage Necklace – Atlantis Dry Goods, Wooden Horn Ring – Poshmark (also worn here), Scratches on hand – Boxing, and Equestrian Cuff – Loewe (gifted).  

Monday Mix (Yes, I’m Late But What’s New)

You know, I’m starting to think I should rename this series, “Tuesday Treats”.  Apt, yes? (from top to bottom) Medusa Cashmere Sweater from Nihan, Comic Book Strip Skirt from Vintage South Austin, just glorious Hand-Painted Wing Scarf from Shovava, Futuristic Metallic Leather Ankle Booties from Nanometer, and now, my personal fave, a Vintage Gold & Silver Articulated Mouse Necklace (the cute little thing measures 7″ long!!), and she’s MINE.  You really need to check out Story Book Vintage, Meghan has some really awesome treasures waiting to be loved. Love, SG

Bright Lights, Big City ~ Brrrrrr

I am very very VERY excited to share the news that yours truly will be attending the IFB Conference in New York City come early February!!  Right smack in the middle of Fashion Week too!!! So, being from the tropics and now living in Houston, I’m asking for tips and tricks from y’all on how to brave and survive Winter with style and panache.  To kickstart the process, I’ve, ahem, acquired these “necessities”. (from the top) Vintage 60s Reversible Mod Plaid Cape from Gypsies Rising, ultra avant garde Braided Shrug from Celapiu (love this sister duo design team), Vintage 70s Reversible Camel+Leopard Cape from Tiger Lily Frocks, and Vintage Space Bunny Tee from My Like Zoo of Hong Kong (ok, so this was an indulgence). I’ve also got the scarf and the puffy jacket and the super thick boots and ear muffs and gloves. What am I missing??? C’mon, ye worldly travellers and NYorkers alike, won’t you help a lass from Borneo who’s making her virgin foray into the Big Apple during the coldest time …
