My birthday is over for another year - the party was on Saturday night. It was great - lots of people showed (although many people who said they would be coming didn't show, which is always somewhat disconcerting).
I didn't buy this dress in Vancouver (I did buy a dress at Banana Republic, and a top at Tristan, and some shoes, though) - I got it over a month ago at the Bay. I just felt like wearing something a little more glitzy, and I love the texture on this dress.
It's got a great vintage-y vibe to it, I think, and Ilove the plum colour. The cut is also fabulous and totally flattering.
I accessorized with a mix of good quality costume (Christmas gift from L a few years back), and vintage. This bracelet is one of Gram S's. I have taken 2 links out of the bracelet part to make it fit. I have no idea how old it is, but I'd guess 1950s.
The necklace and earrings are by Myka, a Vancouver duo: http://www.mykadesigns.com/ They use Swarovski crystals and semi-precious jewels, and all of their stuff is hand-made.
The necklace (I love the thick chain).
And these are the shoes I got in Vancouver - Fluevog again! These are from the "Listen Up" collection (for the scalloped heel - 3 of my 4 dressy 'Vogs are "Listen Up"), and are called "Ivanna".
Totally fab! And so comfy!
Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Canucks!
