Hey, friends, readers and lurkers - sorry for not posting yesterday. October is my busiest month of the year, socially, and I've been...busy! In fact, I have Book Club in a little over an hour, so please forgive me if we rush a bit. Also, I hope to find some time this weekend to visit and comment on your blogs, but you know how it goes - life interferes with the best laid plans.
Here we go: Wednesday's outfit:

I last wore this jacket here in September with a skull skirt - I belted it this time due to the length of the skirt.

Tunic (Tian Art, thrifted), skirt (Planet, thrifted), shoes (Poetic License), belt and buckle (Shi Studio), cuff (thrifted), earrings (gift from Lise).
Right after work yesterday, I rushed home to change into "normal" clothes. You know, for those times when you don't want to stand out in a crowd?
The sweater is one I thrifted a couple of years ago, and is relegated now to wearing around the house. I last wore it here in November 2011 (and I noted there that it bagged out and stretched). It's by Banana Republic and it was only $3.75, so I'm totally cool with it being an in-house item.

My poor ol' feet were much happier in these flat riding boots. I last wore them here (after the Golden Disco Queen pictures) with plaid a couple of weekends ago.
Coat (Smoking Lily), sweater (Banana Republic, thrifted), skirt (Talbot's, consignment), boots (Aldo, consignment), socks (McGregor's), scarf (MetroWear), gloves (Danier Leather).

For those who've wondered, yes, I can really see my neighbour when I'm out on the steps. This is what I look at when I do my stair shots.

I adore this wonderful velvet jacket and the thick embroidery down the front and on the collar. I used to have a bit of a velvet jacket addiction and I'm still very much drawn to them when I see them. I last wore this one in the January 2013 capsule (recap here), although only twice.
here in March with plastic shoes, just before packing it away for the season (not sure why - I'll keep it out all year going forward).

here in August with pants (I know! Pants!).
The plum belt was the perfect match for my tights. Okay, so I'm a matchy girl at heart...
Jacket (Le Chateau, consignment), sweater (Jones New York, consignment), skirt (Selena K, vintage 80s, thrifted), shoes (Fly London), belt (Plum), necklace (vintage 70s), earrings (Judith Hircszy).
