My spirits are up with the weekend in sight.
- Sweater - Karl Lagerfeld, consignment; purchased here for $13.50
- Skirt - Mica, vintage 90s, thrifted; purchased here for $19.99
- Shoes - Leith, consignment; purchased here for $26.95
- Coat (below) - L'Atiste, consignment, Vancouver; last worn here in January
I had a lot of fans of the sweater - the colour is really nice, and the ruffles are big and swooshy.
The skirt was lovely - L liked how it fit my bum (thank you, love!).
I liked the two pieces together - it makes an almost 1920s silhouette.
Outerwear - I learned my lesson from yesterday's too-hot accoutrements.
- Gloves - Parkhurst
- Brooch - Grandma W
- Earrings - consignment
- Amethyst/gold ring - Frances Jewelers, c. 1965, Dad's
- Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop, Florence, Italy
Before I show you my blossoming neighbourhood, I must thank my colleague Kristy for the pictures she took of me yesterday, working at my desk in my safety vest and hardhat, waiting for the fire alarm to ring for our drill.
This is my "I'm watching you, and you'd better go to the right Muster Point" face.
I took my camera with me on my walk to work today (I don't have a cell phone).
This is View Street, downtown - it's known as the first street to be in full bloom, with these wonderful Japanese plum trees.
here 'cause I love) is on the apartment building behind it.
Looking back up View Street.
And now, on the way home.
The evening light on this Victorian mansion is so gorgeous.
I arrived home to my little monster Vizzini. He does this every day when we get home (it greatly amuses our cat-sitters, Ross and Cat).
|Yes, I have a gargoyle in my bathroom.|
He's in the bathroom, biting L's towel. He bites it over and over. What a weird cat.
And now, my friends, I'm off for the weekend! I will be back on Sunday with tales of adventure. Have a wonderful weekend, and thank you so much for coming by!
