Happy Weekend, my friends! It's been a very chill one for me. The periodontist went well - I was heavily sedated for close to 4 hours, and it's taken most of the weekend to recover. Fun times.
My Friday was a write-off, but Saturday saw me determined to carry on.
Linking up to "Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. Get yourself over there!
It's been a little windy/rainy/chilly (typical spring in Victoria), so my jean jacket was needed. I last wore it here - it's one of the few pre-blog items I still own. I bought it in the Ann Taylor in Times Square in NYC back in 2007. According to my posts, I last wore it here (4th outfit) in April, but I've been wearing it as my outerwear regular jacket regularly since then.
here in May. I'm down to $2.00 per wear!
here in March with major pattern mixing.
here in May with flies and copper.
Jacket (Ann Taylor), top (Mossimo, thrifted), skirt (Current, thrifted), shoes (Town Shoes, thrifted), cuff (Guess, thrifted), red cuff (Rimanchik), choker (Bauxo), cameo (local).
L and I did a few chores downtown, then a quick buzz around to a few shops. I quickly scoped out the Patch while he browsed in the game store. I fell in love with this bit of insanity.
This had no label, but it's got wonderful structure.
Seriously, I'm just all over the crazy-ass 70s stuff right now. Look at this skirt!
It's a mix of silvery-gold lame (lah-MAY, darling) and red velvet. Roses!
Today, I went to get groceries and have a little shop on the way home. A little more retail therapy for my sucky Friday, as it were.
Behold, the pomp! I last wore my shiny Star Trek Smoking Lily moto jacket here (3rd outfit) in April, also as a shopping jacket.

here in May with loads of pink. They were not as good for a few hours shopping as they were for a workday, and I ended up swapping them out with one of the (spoiler!) pairs of shoes I found today.
Hat (Deluxe), jacket (Smoking Lily), top (The Limited, consignment), skirt (OptionElle, consignment), shoes (Modern Vintage, thrifted), belt (Club Monaco), earrings (Plum), cuff (About Tine), pin (Raven's Roost Studios).
So, yes, I had marvelous luck with shoes today! I popped into a shop I don't go into very often, and three awesome pairs called my name, including these Born sandals.
Also, Born sandals sell for around $100 new, so getting these for $25.00 was a good deal.
These probably won't stay in my closet too long; they are a little more beat-up than I like, and also a smidge short in the toe. But I really love the goofy style of them.
These are also leather and are nice and soft. I couldn't find out much about the brand, Anne Ross, but these were $25.00.
But these, whoa, these rocked my world, big time.
According to the shop proprietor, I'm the first person in a month who's been able to get her foot into them - I have long narrow feet and a low-medium arch. These fit me like a glove, like I'd been the one who broke them in.
One of the numbers in the style has been rubbed out, but after searching on their website and matching up the stitching, I'm sure that this is my boot - the Savannah, listed at $389.00.
I strolled up to the WIN Boutique, but nothing much grabbed me (and I was still glowing after my shoe haul). This jacket is another bit of Chinoiserie that I fell in love with.
I liked these round earrings:
And how was your weekend?
