It's Like It's My Birthday...But It's Not

Almost everything in today's outfit is a gift from someone:
Got this new-to-me suede jacket for $7 while on holiday, using my Christmas money from my mother-in-law. I think it might be a bit big to wear over a blouse - it feels like more of a light outdoor jacket for spring. I'll probably wear it as outwear once the weather gets better.

Second wear of the Heather Skirt, a gift from my lovely coworker.

And two Fluevogs in a row? Yes! My "Listen Up" (forgot the model name, some movie star) gladiators, my 41st birthday present to myself last year.
The earrings are a gift from my friend Elaine and the necklace was a handmade gift from my friend Cat.

I didn't even think of that when I picked out today's outfit. How weird is that? People must like me or something, ha!

Jacket (B.U.M. Equipment, thrift, $7.50), blouse (Do & Bee), cami (Esprit), skirt (Suzy Shier, gift from Heather), tights (Hue), shoes (Fluevog), earrings (H&M, gift from Elaine), necklace (handmade, gift from Cat).


  1. That heel is very shapely. So are you, of course!

  2. I love the way the brown jacket works with the blue blouse.
    Happy (un) Birthday!

  3. Might have to challenge you to a Fluevog-off. (Have I said this already?) Fess up: How many pairs do you own? I'll go home and count. ;)

  4. OMG I LOVE the shoes!!! And I can't think of a better way to spen 7 bucks, what a steal!!!!!

  5. I was curious about Fluevogs, and I stumbled upon your heels. They're called Listen Up Ivanna:

  6. Love your shoes! And that blue shade is gorgeous!

  7. Wendy: I love the champagne-glass shape of the "Listen Up" line.

    Jane: brown and blue is such a great combo, thanks!

    Sal: I only have 5 pairs. But every time I go to Vancouver, I go into the store and usually buy another pair. I'm planning making my husband buy them for me this year, heh heh. How many do you have?

    HCS: Hey, good to see you! Aren't they the best shoes?

    Cat: Thanks, that's it! I can never remember the names. Don't Fluevog have the best shoes?? They are all handmade.

    Lady D: Thanks!

  8. Sheila, wanted to ask you if I do a copy cat post on one of your outfits? I'll surprise you with which one...just email me if you don't want me to use your photo or link...K

  9. Karen, please feel free! I'm flattered you'd want to copy any of them. You can use my photo and link.
