Woo! Friday! To reward myself for getting through the week, I had a slice of pizza and a glass of wine on the way home. That's decadence!
I kind of didn't go casual today:
This is my most-cherished black velvet embroidered jacket, last worn here (3rd outfit) in October.
The wonderful blue skirt hasn't been worn on its own for a long time! It wasn't in any of the capsules a year+ ago, although I wore it a couple of time during the capsule as a layering piece. It accidentally got tucked into the costume box, and I'd forgotten about it! It's by Noa Noa - that's a brand I really miss buying from Dots, but all their stuff, no matter how nice it is, is manufactured in China. Can't do it. Women of Victoria! Donate your Noa Noa to the thrift shops, please, so I can buy it with a clear conscience.
It's lined in blue cotton (I have a half-slip on to prevent Tight Creep), and the outer layer is a fuller skirt of stripes of sheer blue netting and cotton. It has amazing motion.
Here's how I've worn it since I got it in June 2011. It was a sample piece, with a retail price of $125.00, Dots price of $49.99, then further marked down to $18.00. The colour is called "Honor."
June 2011: one of my favourite looks: cowgirl! There is a picture of the original price tag there.
August 2011, 2nd outfit: worn as a skirt and t-shirt for a casual dinner out;
April 2012: as my first outfit of the 3 day Victoria Steam Expo, as one of many layers; and
September 2012, 3rd outfit: layered under my Spanish ladies dress for Winesday.
Here's something I don't think I've ever worn on the blog:
I see this oversized style of coat is in style again - isn't that funny? Everything comes back.
here (2nd outfit, once again there's the Spanish ladies dress!) back in July with my black shirtdress.
Jacket (Le Chateau, consignment), cami (InWear), skirt (Noa Noa), shoes (Bellevue Pearl Hart, Fluevog), belt (vintage 70s, thrifted), shark ring/earrings (local), spinner ring (Twang & Pearl).
Vizzini was bugging me to feed him while I was taking pictures of the stuff when I got home.

Have a wonderful weekend! To my fellow Canucks, peace and thanks on this Remembrance Day to those who fought and died for us.
