Casual Friday - Plum-tastic!

So I am treating today as Casual Friday, business as usual. I always looked forward to having a slightly less dressy day, so here I am back to that.
Purple velvet cotton jacket (Jacob), Plum anniversary t-shirt (Plum), black cotton turtleneck sweater (Reitmans), dark grey cords (Esprit), black leather grommet belt (Plum - the one Ruth gave me is a bit more rock n' roll), black motorcyle boots (Cougar, from The Cobbler), silver multi-hoop earrings (can't remember, probably The Bay).

I love this jacket - I am a total sucker for any kind of velvet, especially in a rich colour like this. I was going to do the t-shirt solo under it, but the weather is freaking crazy (it hailed today!), so I went for warmth. Here's a shot of the t-shirt - it's one of those funky grafitti-esque designs. Plum put it out for their anniversary last year:

Hmm...I look better with the jacket done up. My boobs look flat there. Grr.

Love these boots. They need to be re-heeled, but I'm waiting until summer so I won't miss wearing them (they are a staple of my weekend wardrobe). They are waterproof and have a stretchy thick back, so they fit nice and snug. I get a lot of compliments from men on these, oddly, especially when I wear them with a skirt or dress. I guess they like that "bad girl" look.
I'm also a sucker for buckles. Bring 'em on!
