Happy weekend! Hope you are all having fun!
For me, I am all tuckered out and I need a nap. But first, a post and some tea.
Friday's outfit:here (last outfit, just before the travel pictures) a couple of weekends ago with my black leather dress.
This is my asymmetrical brown skirt again (last seen here last weekend in the 2nd & 3rd outfits). Viewing that post, and seeing Vizzini's destruction of my olive shoes...arg. He got into my closet again today and chewed off some of the remaining strap on the damaged shoe. Can't look away from him for a second! That strap still does up, but these are never going to fool anyone that they're in good shape. Little monster!
This is my second wear of this lace top.
here with my blue knit skirt.
I liked all the neutrals punctuated by red - and red lipstick! - and of course, I'm never subtle with my colour, so I added more with my coat!
|Don't be fooled. He is an evil kitty.|
Coat (Danier Leather), top (handmade, vintage, thrifted), skirt (Le Fleur de Mon Secret, consignment), boots (Adrian Agnes, Fluevog).
This morning, I got up early and went to WW - I haven't been since before Christmas, so it was nice to see everyone.
here on Thursday all sleeveless and brrrrr-y!). I'm wearing my navy vintage slip under it again.
I liked the capelet (last seen here with a cream, blue and lavender mix) for keeping my arms warm while at the meeting and at lunch after, but I don't love it. It's not going to stay in my wardrobe after this month.
here again, they looked all right with lacy tights.
I also shopped and walked around in them all day and the balls of my feet are killing me now. Seriously, throbbing. They may have to go.
An outerwear shot:
I doubled-up the capelet as a scarf with my outerwear. I liked the mix of pink and orange (the umbrella) and purple (the bag and gloves) with the bright coat. I overheard someone say, "I love that coat" as I was leaving the diner. I love it too!
Oh, speaking of shopping, I finally mailed off all the little goodies that I bought before Christmas. So, Megan, Megan, Lynne, Tamera and Lorena, your packages are all in the mail!
Coat (Bebe, thrifted), capelet (Floating Gold Iceberg), dress (Smoking Lily, consignment), shoes (Aerosoles).
I went to the Women in Need (WIN) Thrift Boutique - I don't go there very often because I think they overprice most of the clothing, but I do have good luck there.
I found this really nice stretchy sweater layering top by Jones New York:
I fell in love with the colour of this sweater:
My addiction to leather and suede continues! I put back a pair of brown suede pants (they were $20) after much deliberation. I already have a rocking pair of brown leather pants.
However, I did find this amazing olive green suede skirt:
I know, I just bought a black flared nearly-maxi skirt just last weekend...but this one is a full-on maxi, and it's suede!
My biggest score of the day was a gorgeous pair of bronze-y metallic pumps:
And they're Lauren by Ralph Lauren, and get this - only $18.50! These have been worn maybe twice - they still had most of the original price tag half-peeled-off crap on the soles.
caramel Ralph Lauren pumps that I bought on deep discount at the Bay last year.
I plan to wear these until they fall apart.
I've been gradually collecting fur pins (I have this vintage one with pearls and this mink rose) on my journeys through thrift and consignment stores. Another one is added to my keep-out-of-Vizzini's-reach collection:
Anyway...rambling... this one was the cheapest one I've ever found - it was only $1.00! Yay! Score!
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
