Happy weekend! This weekend is a long weekend for most provinces in Canada, for Remembrance Day on Nov 11th, so I won't be around too much. Well, there will be this post, and I'm setting another one for Monday, but I'll really be hanging around the house in my jeans, a fuzzy sweater and a floor length Chinese robe. And leopard slippers.
For casual Friday, I did cashmere and leather.here with cropped pants - not a favourite look). It's not a really great quality cashmere; the brand is Expression, which is the stuff they sell at Winners. I has a nice wide neckline, with a little loop and tie at the front. I didn't realize how much of my back it showed until I started getting a lot of comments on my tattoos from my coworkers!
I first wore it here, as well as Nov 2008 (with some cool red boots that I got rid of due to crappy quality), early Dec 2009 (with my painty skirt and showing off my madd assembling skillz, yo), again very casually in December 2009 (I haven't worn jeans to work in 7+ months!), and in Jan 2010 (with a pretty skirt), and in November 2010 with last month's mustard sweater.
And that's it! A basic black cashmere sweater and this is only the 6th time I've worn it in 4 years! That's just wrong.
However, let's see about this wonderful suede skirt. This is a Danier Leather maxi that I thrifted in September 2010 for $19.50 - I first wore it here with these same shoes. It's machine washable and tumble dry - and yes, I've tried it and it worked great. I think the skirt is from the mid- to late-90s, as it's super low on the hips. I had a black full-length slip on under this and that helped keep me covered in the back!
here (with shoes and blouse from last month's capsule) in January, and before that in January 2011 for a trip to see L's inlaws (check out the pic of me flying a helicopter, hee hee), and December 2010 (accented with a graphic tee and purple). Only 4 wears? Wow, it seemed like more!
The shoes are my fun Pumpkin Pies, last worn here, last Friday.
I liked the turquoise accents from my accessories, so played that up with my outerwear:
I haven't worn this Mexican ring for years:
Sweater (Expression, consignment), skirt (Danier Leather, thrifted), shoes (Unlisted), belt (Brave Belt, thrifted), black cuff (Guess, thrifted), cogs cuff (SkinzNHydez), turquoise ring (Le Chateau), earrings (Caracol), ring (gift from Mom & Dad, 80s), coat (old job swag), scarf (Marks & Spencer, thrifted), gloves (Accessorize).
It was too cold yesterday to open the deck door for the day for Vizzini. I went to see how he was taking this.
