Whew! Thank goodness for long weekends! I need today to recover from the rest of the weekend. It's BC Day (a nothing holiday), so my Monday will be spent in pleasant relaxitude with L.
But back to Friday!
Weekend hair, of course, was in order.
here in May with shades of blue and orange.
here (2nd outfit) with a vintage dress and hat in May for my nieces' dance recital - that dress ended up being one of those stinky vintage ones, so I got rid of it.
Dress (Lirub), shoes (Tsubo), belt (vintage 80s, thrifted), cuff (thrifted), earrings (local).
L and I were quite the colourful couple that night!
Not enough people for Ultimate on Saturday morning, so L and I just went for brunch on our own.
I do sunblock up the exposed parts.
L and I laughed at the "Really!" part, as if she thought I might not have believed her otherwise. Still, doesn't it seem like compliments from strangers are somehow more valid and believable?
here in February (eek!) with tights, scarf and boots - the whole shebang!
Dress (Mary Jo Bruno, vintage 80s, consignment), shoes (Born, consignment), belt (Mom's, vintage 60s), earrings (real gold, gift from L in 2002).
Mr. Vizzini has been coping with the heat by flopping in cool places.

Saturday night, L and I hung out at home and played "Arkham Horror" and listened to music. It was some much-needed downtime.
We slept in a bit on Sunday, lounged about, read, browsed the Interwebz, then got ready to head to town for Nick's annual birthday good times at a downtown pub. Just us and 15+ of our best friends! (last year's outfit here, 3rd one down, my strapless 80s dress).
We walked to town, so I had my trusty paper hand-painted parasol instead of sunblock.
I really tried to wear a hat so that I could participate in Judith's "Hat Attack" over at Style Crone, but nothing quite worked (must find a surfer!). So, I'm counting my hair as a "Hair Attack" instead. Please, go check out all the awesome bloggers and their beautiful chapeaux!
here last weekend for $13.97.
Blurry, but check out my one lavender pointer finger and pinky.
Shoe Shine! But it was so hot, and I couldn't walk to town (and back) in them, so I swapped out to these pewter gladiator sandal kitten heels. I last wore these shoes for my work quarterly meeting with a crazyass Hawaiian dress last month, here.
Wendy Brandes' innovations when it comes to jewelry. She's been championing the one-off odd earrings lately, so I put my own spin on it by deliberately mismatching mine. I figured this worked well due to the earrings being similar shapes, with the graduating drops.
Dress (vintage 60s, D'Allaird's, thrifted), shoes (Enzo Angiolini, consignment), cuff (thrifted), bracelet (vintage 60s, Mom's, Coro), long earring (gift from Lise), shorter earring (Jacob), round ring (Nine West), Death Star ring (Soul Flower).
Before we left the house, I tracked down Officer Vizzini.
|"Hey, I'm on a break!"|
He was transfixed by the reflections from my ring and vintage bracelet.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
