We start off with me barely awake Friday morning. I did bare legs and man, they were chilly. I rocked the booties, though!
This is my wonderful stripey top (worn many times!) layered under another tee, and my acid-wash skirt (last seen here). I used to own high-waisted acid-wash jeans back in the day - they had pleats too!
I'm having fun introducing my co-workers to my own special brand of Casual Friday; first the Gothy side, then the Indie side, then the Leather side, and now my Rocker side.
It's really interesting to see how a new group of people reacts when all they know of me at first is my appearance. There are definitely different reactions.
This is my new purse again. It's my third Matt & Nat bag (one, two) - I really like their quality and that they're vegan.
I wore my boyfriend blazer for outerwear during the day:
This is a belt I bought at the Gap last week - it was marked down to $24. I am a sucker for a cool leather belt.
And it goes perfectly with the boots!
That strap on the heel makes me paranoid. I always think I'm going to walk on it or trip over it. Last seen here.
I had an impromptu gathering with some friends on Friday evening.
Jacket (Banana Republic, thrifted), striped tee (Majestic, swap from Caro), tee (Plum, gift from L), skirt (Cache, thrifted), belt (Gap), boots (Libby Edelman), brown bag (Matt & Nat, consignment), black bag (Licence 71195).
I walked to the bus stop and realized within 10 minutes that I'd missed the bus - had to catch a cab instead. At least I got a couple of good pictures on my little jaunt:
The city has been full of these beautiful blooming treeslately. There are species that bloom at different times over a two-month period, some with white blossoms, some with deep pink. They smell heavenly, but make me sneezy.
Check out this awesome Victorian house:
It's all spooky looking with the oak looming over it!
On Saturday, I worked reception at WW for the morning:
This is the second wear of this cool Bodybag dress (first seen here) and a repeat of the belt from the day before.
These shoes were pretty good but after a long day of work, lunch out, dashing a couple of blocks and back for a quick eyebrow wax appointment, my feet were tired. Last seen here.
Dress ("Love Dress O" by Bodybag by Jude Clothing, consignment), belt (Gap), shoes (Aerosoles).
My mom had her cataracts done recently and now she doesn't need to wear glasses anymore - which is awesome, but made her face feel naked. I've been bugging her for years to let me get her brows done and do all her make-up and this time she gave in! Mom, thanks for letting me give you this! You looked beautiful - Happy Early Birthday!
Because I knew I'd be walking around a lot (I also had lunch out with L and got groceries), I gave my feet a break and did flats.
This is my first blog wear for the top - I got it a couple of months ago on a thrifting trip for $11. It's hard to tell but it's actually a fine cream and emerald green striped cashmere-blend sweater.
These are my awesome Noa Noa sail pants (seen here, here and here). Of course, they got dirty immediately. Immediately! What is up with that?
I did my jean jacket for outerwear:
Jacket (Ann Taylor Loft), sweater (Banana Republic, thrifted), pants (Noa Noa), shoes (Kenneth Cole Reaction), bag (Matt & Nat, consignment).
My dear friend Sherylyn is moving to Vancouver, and gave us her most amazing cat scratching post:
Someone was not too sure about it at first:
The black stick is Inigo's mortal enemy.
And the nice view out the window:
