New Shoes! Vans, baby! Casual Friday

Patterned smock top (Costa Blanca, consignment), black swing jacket (Simply Manakin, Winners), black skinny jeans (Jacob), black rocker chick belt (not visible, from Ruth!), Vans slip-ons (some boardshop in Kitsilano), handmade chainmail necklace (online charity auction, locally made).
A simple casual outfit for work on a sunny but still cold Friday. One of my favourite tops, with the classic skinny jean, a funky jacket and Vans. Oh, and the chainmail necklace, which I love.

A close-up of the Vans:

We're headed over to Caro's for a party tonight. She said casual dress, so I'm wearing a vintage lace dress. No one tells me to do casual for a party! Ha!


  1. Love the outfit. Do you have any idea whether Simply Manakin is still in production. Just bought one of their jackets at a vintage store and although it is in perfect condition I suspect it may be fairly old.

  2. It was in production as of last Fall, since that's when I bought this new at Winners (a store that sells tons of discounted but new clothing/shoes/accessories/household items). I did a search on it and got a bunch of Ebay listings.

  3. Thanks for the information Sheila. The jacket I bought seems to be very well made, and it looks great. I am going to enjoy wearing it.
