And a lovely weekend has been had! I did social things, quiet things, things with friends, things with L and things on my own. Just right.
But let's backtrack - Friday!
This is my second wearing of this consignment dress, purchased here in early June and worn that same weekend with pink accents.
here in June with Chinoiserie.
Dress (Artistic Taste, consignment), shoes (Modern Vintage, thrifted), belt (thrifted), earrings (Foxy), ring (Twang & Pearl).
After work, we met up at the University theatre, Cinecenta, to go see "Only Lovers Left Alive", a film by Jim Jarmusch. I liked it as a mood piece - very beautiful. Tilda Swinton is amazing.
But I know you really want to see my buzz.
Well, nearly everyone.

I haven't worn this dress in a while - last time here (2nd outfit) in June 2013 - and it may be time to let it go. Maybe not. I haven't really decided.
here (2nd outfit) a couple of weeks ago in June, also to the Ulty field.
Dress (Smoking Lily, thrifted), shoes (Born, thrifted), cuff (thrifted), earrings (local).
L went over to a friend's to watch the World Cup finale. I stayed home and dyed my hair, after which I walked to town and got groceries and did a little poke around in some shops.
The cardigan was last seen here a few weeks ago, with turquoise strapless. It quickly undid itself, so I wore it hanging down all day.
here (2nd outfit) in May with turquoise.
here in June (along with these same sandals - also the last wear of them).
Cardigan (Bellissima, thrifted), t-shirt (Forever 21, consignment), skirt (Le Chateau, consignment), shoes (La Canadienne, consignment), earrings (vintage), ring (Frances Jewelers, vintage 60s, Dad's).
I don't shop new very much at all anymore. It's easily been over a year since I took the "Secondhand First" pledge. However, I have been in dire need to replace some of my camisoles and layering tops, most of which are 6-7 years old and are getting worn out.
I stopped into Dots to check out the summer clearance stuff, and found two pink camis.
Totally guilty. I bought a new skirt.
I like the tag.
I did stop in at the thrift stores, but nothing clothing-wise really grabbed me. I found this thing, from the line of "diamond point glassware" that I collect. I have tons of goblets and plates and things in this pattern, all thrifted or gotten very cheaply.
However, see if you can figure out what this is.
It has a hole in it!
Let's look at a piece I already have, this low small dish/bowl.
My new piece fits on top of the little bowl.
