HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY, LOGAN!
|"Wait, isn't this about me?"|
Wednesday was my favourite person's 50th birthday! However, since 2020 is not turning out to be quite the year we planned, we're going to save the annual Day of Indolence (last year, here) and massive Birthday Bash (last year - here - I wore 3 different outfits!) till 2021, when hopefully we'll be able to have all of the celebrations L both wants and deserves!
However, it was still a gorgeous day out, and we're not dead (yet), so we strolled to town for a look-around, and just to get out. Maybe a pub would be open!
- Dress - InWear; purchased here for $20.99
- Shoes - Enneagram Individualist, Fluevog; last seen here in March with PANK in the gloom
- Jacket (below) - Dolce & Gabbana, vintage 90s, thrifted; last worn here in May with last-chance black (a reprieve was earned)
The two shades of pink looked better in person, but I was still the dressiest person
Jacketed up for sun coverage (I still am fully-sunblocked).
I nearly went with a matchy blue purse.
- Purse - Aldo
- Belt - Lady Foot Locker, vintage, thrifted
- Necklace/earrings - Sherman, vintage 60s, thrifted
- Brooch - vintage, vintage fair
- Bracelet - Coro, vintage 70s, Mom's
- Lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
Here's the Birthday Guy with our little monster, Vizzini.

L got a lot of compliments on his shoes and his band tee, which is from the hilarious pirate metal band Alestorm, a gift from me, shipped all the way from Austria last Christmas.
We discovered that the Garrick's Head, our favourite downtown pub, had just reopened, so we stopped in for a pint and lunch. Hooray! I missed their fries!
|Rock on, sir.|
You can see that every other table is X'd off, and people are distanced. There were also plexiglass sections along the bar, and we had to give our names/contact numbers for contact tracing in the event of an outbreak.
Fortified by our lunch success, and reminded of our missed 23rd anniversary trip to Fluevog in Vancouver where we buy each other a new pair, we thought we'd check and see if our local store was open yet...and it was!
We had a lovely time trying on a bunch of shoes (I have my eye on some that I'll stalk when they eventually go on sale), and after much consideration, this is what L bought me!
here, and all links 'cause I love), and were $449.00 (yes, you read that right - good shoes are not cheap). I sized up to a 10 and then tightened across the vamp to a perfect fit.
This style was first created in collaboration with Anna Sui for her Fall 2019 runway at Fashion Week (link here).
The entire sole and heel are rubber, very squishy and comfy. Due to the platform, these are about a 1.5" heel, very walkable!
Look at that gorgeous buckle! It's two angels, and is very Art Nouveau looking to me.
I've got soul/sole, baby.
here. I also bought him a gift certificate for his birthday, so please convince him to buy the Dios, here!
We also stopped by my ex-coworker and good friend Tammy's shop, Catawumpus Fudge & Funk, and bought fudge, some cloth masks, and a present for a friend. I also found this awesome pendant.
Vizzini, don't you want to wish L a Happy Birthday?

There's been a lot of napping in the last few days. I hope you're all having a great week!
