A quiet weekend was just what I needed, and a quiet weekend was had.
- Sweater - Smart Set, thrifted; last seen here (6th outfit) way back in October 2014 with the first wearing of the picador skirt
- Skirt - Tommy Hilfiger, thrifted; first worn here in September 2015 with a chunky cream sweater
- Boots - Ash; last seen here (3rd outfit) for some shopping in October 2015
This weekend, we did the latter and I went for a thrift shop after brunch.
However, they were both easy layers for taking on and off for trying on clothes.
- Studded cuff - homegrown vintage, 80s
- Leather cuff - Guess, thrifted
- Earrings - gift from Megan Mae
Before I show you what I bought, it's time for...
|"Really? Now? Can't you just leave me alone, woman?"|
He is a very chatty cat, with a wide range of chirps, merps, meows, yowls and grumbles. L and I both talk to him and he answers us back.
|"What can I say? I'm a good communicator."|
|"I demand play-time! Bring me my mousie!"|
Anyway, cat interlude over! Here's what I found at my first stop, the St. Vincent de Paul store.
Hey! It's a blue sweater! Whattaya know?
This top is by Eric Alexandre (probably purchased at Dots, I would guess), and has never been worn - there's the spare thread packet, still attached to the label.
I really like this tropical patterned pencil skirt.
Fabulous laser-print pattern.
It's by Mario Serrani, and was $6.00.
I popped into Head Over Heels (link here 'cause I love) on the way to the WIN Warehouse store - they have some of my favourite local jewelry.
From there, I strolled over to WIN for a long browse in the Warehouse Store. I was flabbergasted to find this dress in the regular section and not in the Boutique section.
It was only $8.00!
I also found a dress in the Boutique section, and it's a stunner.
The only piece that isn't two-dimensional is two sections of embroidered and beaded leaves.
And it's Desigual by Christian Lacroix!
If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you'll eventually notice that I go through white tops at an alarming rate. I am brutal on white tops and blouses - spills, stains, sweat, lipstick, pen, dirt. They are magnets!
This one's by Tommy Hilfiger.
This is a pretty basic white tank, but it still has special detail to it.
This is Club Monaco, and by the content tag's state, this has had a lot of washing and wear.
I lucked out in the lingerie section with this lovely burgundy vintage slip.
|"Is this edible? Those straps look tasty."|
I had good luck at the WIN jewelry counter. Yes, this is a pearl tie! I think it's vintage 80s - I was able to make out a faintly stamped "Hong Kong" on the clasp.
There was a ton of really nice costume earrings. I might have to go back.
Right down to the settings on the back.
I found this silk tie in the vintage section.
I couldn't find out anything online about John Comfort of London, but $3.95 is a good price.
I already have a leather handmade obi belt, but this one was thin leather with satin backing.
$8.95 for Banana Republic - and real leather! - that's a great deal. I am going to take this into work tomorrow and see if one of my coworkers is interested in buying it (for the same as what I paid, of course). It was too good to pass up, but not something I need, and I know someone will want it.
And my friends, how about you? Any scores this weekend?
