Jane over at The Small Fabric of My Life has done a round up of all the Capsule Wardrobe Challenge participants from a couple of weeks ago, and I won the "spot" prize! I'm not sure what a spot prize is, but woo hoo! I won! This is so exciting. I hope it's a pony.
I went to the Art Gallery this past Friday night with my friend Elaine for a martini/music night to celebrate their contemporary Japanese artist exhibit. My favourite things were objects covered in glass beads - the deer head was wild! I would hang that in my house.
Of course, I had to wear something artsy:
I could have gone way more over the top (i.e. a hat, a cape, something really flamboyant), but I was tired from a stressful work week, and because we walked to the Art Gallery, I had to wear semi-sensible shoes. I was also one of about a hundred women in black, haha.
This is my Kitchen Orange dress that I've only worn once (here). Because of the major industrial zipper down the front of it, I felt it needed some major accessories. I finally used my giant clutch that I got on consignment ages ago:
Here's a better shot of the awesome neckline on this dress:
I love that.
The clutch is much more of a burgundy shade (and it's lined in pink satin!). It's by Nine West and was $16 on consignment months ago.
I stopped downtown on the way home after work on Friday and popped into Aldo Accessories for some trendy bling:
All the bracelets came together, and were $15.00. The earrings were $10.00. The bracelets are made in India - I love Indian brass. Isn't that massive cuff awesome? It has a mix of grey and brass studs. I will definitely be working that into my rocker looks.
And I know no one is really that jazzed about my painting hobby, but it's my other artistic outlet (other than fashion), and it's been months since I finished a figure. This guy's been a major artistic block because he's so boring:
I'll put him in the Christmas village. I think I'll name him Johnny Big Hand. He's actually only an inch tall, so cut me some slack for the ultra-surprised look on his face - eyes are hard to paint!
Off to dye my hair!
