Today is L's birthday: Happy Birthday, love! You're the best!
Last night was the party, and it was a doozy! It was a "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" theme, so anyone who brought a towel (you can't forget your towel) got a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. And believe me, those were potent.
I actually stopped drinking at 9:30ish, as I had a 5K WW walk event this morning that I had to be at for 8am. Yeah. I don't think I'm going to sign up to do that anymore. It's just bad timing.
Anyway, yes! I did the Wild Card outfit for June right off the bat, only 2 days in!
I've had this vintage dress for 3 years and this is the 4th wear of it. I last wore it in April 2010 (here), previously in September 2009 (here), and got it in June 2009 (here).
It was originally $24.99. It's cotton and has no stretch, so it totally smooshes my boobs, but I love the retro vibe.

Now, where else can one wear a leather and brass bracer??
Dress (no label, vintage 60s/70s), boots (Fluevog, Babycakes Minis), bracer (SkinZnHydez), earrings (Foxy).
My dear friend Cat looked lovely (and I adore her Smoking Lily skirt!):
Karen also looked smokin' hot:
The last guests left at 2am, and I got up at 6:30am this morning for the aforementioned 5K walk. Well, I walked to town, did the 5K, then got groceries, then walked home, so it was a little more than 5K for me. I was very happy not to be hungover, but nap-time is calling to me...
We met up with our Vancouver friends, Spence and Kim and their daughter Eloise for brunch today. I was happy to get out of my walking gear and into a new outfit!
here (2nd outfit) in September 2011. I bought it a little earlier in September (here, 4th outfit), and it's been packed away with my summer stuff since then. It was thrifted for $3.00.
The tunic top has only been worn once before (here), so it was definitely ripe to be included in a capsule. I can't have closet orphans hanging around! All clothes have to pull their weight in my wardrobe or they're outta here!
This is also my second wear ever of this wrinkly maxi skirt. Dang, I love maxi skirts!
|Vizzini: not so impressed with the maxi skirt - note that the Boob Purse is back in rotation!|
I really liked the long loose vibe of this outfit. I'd wear it again!
It's the first wear ever these sandals.
this post. These shoes have never been worn.
Cardigan (Alternative Apparel, thrifted), top (Dex), skirt (Club Monaco), shoes (Clark's Artisan, consignment), necklace/earrings (Plum).
Yeah, I'm procrastinating a big on the May re-cap post (they take a long time), so it will probably be tomorrow - I'm off Monday, yay!
And now, nap time.
