Woo! Happy long weekend! I'm so thrilled to see so many of you dressed up and in your finery for my birthday party tonight! There's still plenty of time - I'll be out all day tomorrow with my niece and won't be doing the party dress round-up until Sun/Mon.
Please join me: Break Out Your Party Dress!
Please put on your best outfit, and send me a link or a picture no later than end of day Sunday, and I'll do a round-up after I've recovered from the party (heh). I want to see sparkles! Pretty shoes! Anything you think might be a bit too crazy? Not for my party!
Apparently, Saturday is Plaidurday! I didn't get the memo and wore my plaid on Friday.
This is my plaid dress that I bought when Plum shut down in February 2011 for $25.00. I first wore it here, with just simple black accessories. I've also previously worn it here in April 2011 (layered with a black wrap so that it looks like a skirt; ugh, bad stair pose)...and I can't find any other instances of wearing it! Which is shameful, as it's such a cool dress.
I'm just wearing a black graphic tee under this (not part of the capsule), with my black leather obi as belt.
|I've got pockets!|
I wore my jean jacket for walking around.
Dress (Plum), t-shirt (BCBG Max Azria, consignment), belt (consignment), cuff (Guess, thrifted), studded cuff (vintage 80s), shoes (Marc Softwalk, thrifted), jacket (Ann Taylor Loft).
Today, L and I went for brunch again (it's Birthday Weekend! we even had special coffees, yum yum). I decided to go pirate-y.
We got groceries for the party tonight: fruit (pineapple, three kinds of melon, raspberries, grapes and kiwi fruit) and veggies (celery, mushrooms, cucumber, red pepper, celery, grape tomatoes, baby carrots), ranch dip, hummous dip, lots of kinds of cheese (including local brie, goat cheese, Stilton, blue) plus crackers (including gluten-free), veggie pate, olives, prosciutto, chocolate cookies (also gluten free), dark chocolate covered almonds, sour wine gums, and about 5 kinds of chips (including baked for those who want to feel virtuous). Did I miss anything?? I think I hit all the food groups.
To drink, I have red and white wine, beer, all the hard liquors, a bunch of random liqueurs (including absinthe for the adventurous), and all are welcome to sample some of my single malt scotches.
Anyway, back to clothes! This is my green bell-sleeved sweater. I got it at Winners ages ago. I think the first wear of it is here in October 2008 (making it 4 years old! wow!). Those shoes were way too tight.
I've also worn it here, in December 2008 with a godawful ruffled blouse, here in February 2009 when I first did aikido, here in April 2009 with a similar skirt (I no longer have it), here for St. Patrick's day 2010 with a mini skirt, here in November 2010 with pants and with a skirt (in one day!), here in January 2011 in full-on whackadoo mode with my Smoking Lily cape, here again for St. Patrick's Day 2011 (2nd outfit, to go to Book Club). I last wore it in December 2011 to do some Christmas shopping (here, 2nd outfit).
here in September 2011 for my debut at my current office. The only time since then that I've worn it is here in January 2012, with an awesome suede jacket that I need to wear again soon!
The belt is a suede vintage early 90s Le Chateau, and I'm wearing my Raven's Rest Studio tile pendant, along with snake and spider rings and simple white gold hoop earrings.
It was really warm today, so I just threw on my skull scarf and cross-body bag.
Sweater (Max Studio), cami (InWear), skirt (J.J.F., consignment), boots (Marc Softwalk), scarf (Metrowear), pendant (Raven's Rest Studio).
Gotta go clean up for the party and get the food prepped! Can't wait to see all the party clothes!
