I Can See For Miles and Miles

Remember the "Miss Style.....of Course" label I showed you in my last post?  Well, here's what it's from....

The most screamingly bright peachy pink/orange coat I've ever seen - I have not tested it out, but I would not be surprised if it glows in the dark

It fits perfectly, and is a wool blend, so it will be good for these Winter/Spring days we've been having, and the colour means I will be easily seen by drivers, other pedestrians, and just about anyone within a radius of about 5 miles.  I hope I'm not mistaken for a traffic cone.
I like the seaming in the back and the little half belt with button accents, and the fact that it cost $13

Dayglo coat found at Talize, worn over vintage jumpsuit from The Sentimentalist,  accessorized with Neosens boots from From Mars and scarf from Frilly Lizard

In addition to thrifted joy, I was also gifted with a parcel from the divine maxi-dress queen herself,  Curtise, which contained, amongst other treats, this lovely painted metal necklace, which I immediately put on with the thrifted velvet top I was wearing that day.  I was honoured to be the recipient of two items of clothing that I had admired her wearing on her blog, which I will show you when they are incorporated into an outfit.  The thrill that comes with receiving packages of joy from other bloggers - priceless!

This is my last post for the week as I am heading off on a secret blogger adventure from which I will report back next week.  Y'all have a good week now, y'hear?


  1. Amazing coat! I love that color, and it's got a great shape.

    That necklace could not be more perfect with that top!! Serendipity!

  2. What a fabulous coat! I love the colour - I am always boggled that coats are black, making them nearly invisible in the twilight or dark.

    Lovely necklace!

  3. Shellery, I love the cut, colour and detailing on that coat - what a pop of spring too! The necklace Curtise sent is too dear. Looking forward to seeing the other goodies. And a secret blogger mission? Sounds intriguing!

  4. Wow, the coat is beautiful. Very cool necklace, too!!!
    Becky :)

  5. That coat looks incredible! Definitely the most unique colour I've seen.

  6. Shelley, that coat couldn't fit you any better if it had been tailor-made for you! I love the is-it-pink-orange-peach? neon colour, and the beautiful shape and style. Traffic cone? I don't think so! Traffic-stopping? Yes indeed!
    So pleased the parcel arrived safely. If you are off to hang out with darling Amber, I hope y'all have a fine time, even though I am seething with envy, positively seething! Give her the biggest hug, if she is indeed part of your Top Secret blogger mission! And another big hug for you too. xxxx

  7. Beautiful coat. Enjoy your secret adventure

Careful you don't get coat-jacked, that is the most incredible coat I've seen in ages and I'm pretty sure there will be a LOAD of envious stares coming your way - I love the button detail too and oh my it fits like a glove! Wow, the beautiful necklace from Curtise is a work of art!! Isn't she a honey? See ya next week when you spill the beans;) xoxoxoxoxo
