I fully intended to get up at 9am and go to my WW meeting this morning, however, instead I slept in and then L and I met Andrew and Nick for lunch. It felt very decadent to sleep in.
Today's outfit features the last of my 30 February items, this denim jacket.
In case you're interested, this is what I can see when I'm sitting outside on the steps:
I love the suck-you-in-ed-ness of this jacket. It has a lot of lycra in it.
yesterday, and this faux suede skirt last seen here in Outfit #5. Wore my walking boots (Outfit #6), because we got some groceries and stuff for our Festivus party tonight. Yeah, I know Festivus is supposed to be in November or December, but whatever. Our theme is actually "F**k Valentine's Day! it's Festivus!" We have a Feats of Strength contest (this time not arm-wrestling like at our last party), and the Airing of Grievances. Of course, we will put up the Pole.
The accessories are my locally-made silver feather earrings, and my Shi Studio cowboy buckle and belt.
Although it's cloudy today, it's not that cold, so I just bundled up with my faux fur:
While we were downtown, I had to go to Smoking Lily* because I had heard they were having a huge sale starting today on stuff that didn't sell, one-offs, discontinued styles, etc. If you looked at that link, that store is only 3 feet deep by 6 feet wide. I tried all my purchases on in the street, right there. Oh, and that second picture? That's an octopus coat...and it may have come home with me...
I have never bought a single piece of Smoking Lily new (only my yellow bug scarf was purchased for me new), but I went hog wild. The prices were crazy! Sadly, most of it will have to wait to be worn until March when I change over to a new capsule wardrobe.
I picked up a few things for friends, because that's just what I like to do. This is for Megan Mae:
I also got this belt for another friend who loves bicycles:
This is something I bought for myself that I will never be modelling!
Underlovelies" - these were $7.00 (they are regular $20). The back of them (the above picture, has blue greyhounds leaping amongst bees, and assorted floral patterns. One of the designs is a repeated keyhole:
*Just as a reminder, I link because I love. I didn't get anything from Smoking Lily for linking to them or mentioning them; I support local businesses.
