    Love the colours in the middle outfit!

  • Darcie

    lady, should we ever meet in real life, be very weary of letting me near your shoe closet!!!

  • kittyscreations

    I love the oatmeal bolero. It fits so well with the rest of the outfit. I’m hoping to get my first pair of Fluveogs soon. It will be the most expensive shoe purchase I’ve ever made, but I think it will be worth it.

  • Sharon Rose

    Hi there-I do love your platforms in the last post plus the Frye boots are delicious!

  • Songy

    Hey Lady. Very rich fall look. Love the full colours on the second one and the whole thing on the third. Well put together.

    You’ve gotta be kidding me!!! Please do tell him that love his work! He is genius!!!

    Those Haight platforms are the business and as I say to my clients colour loves colour!

  • a cat of impossible colour

    I love the colours you wear! :)

    And hope Rowan is recovering well, and your other kitty isn’t bouncing on her stomach or anything mean. Are you back to work today?

  • fashion herald

    love your fluevogs, and the oatmeal bolero is just gorgeous on you!

  • Skye

    I love the colours in the second one – those kind of jewel tones look so great together!

    Good to hear the kitty is home!

  • Miss Karen

    I love the brown skirt…and I haven’t been to the Mexican Shop for months! I’m sure they miss me. I should go check.

  • April

    Love outfit two! The colors are absolutely fantastic!

    And thanks for all the comments — I'm so bad at responding! <3


  • AsianCajuns

    You look lovely! I especially love the jewel tones in the second outfit- gorgeous, gorgeous!

  • enc

    Sal, this is as zingy and zippy as I’ve ever seen you! It’s all great. Especially that ginchy bolero!

  • Savvy Mode SG

    i like colors on the 2nd outfit.

  • Sarah

    you’re a pro at layering, so it seems. even though i live in melbourne and we’re notorious for layering, thats still an area that i still need to work on.

  • Imelda Matt

    It’s all about the top outfit for me…xxxx

  • lopi

    The colors in that second picture almost popped out of my screen! Very happy outfit.
    And seeing you rock that bolero in the third picture, I thought it might look even better with a dress. And then it occurred me: you don’t wear dresses very often, at least in daytime. Why is that dear?

  • Rowena

    Loving these looks. I’m taking you as inspiration on layering. I’m trying to step up the fashion after being a stay at home mom to toddlers for years. Still a SAHM, but I’m tired of stretched out yoga pants and tank tops.

  • Iheartfashion

    The oatmeal bolero is great on you.
    Hope your kitty’s feeling better…

  • Christina Lee

    Have a great day!
