I got an email the other day from Marie, a reader of Ephemera from way back - she was going to be in Victoria to see her mom and wanted to get together!
Of course, I wanted to meet her!
I wore this awesome wool/cotton sweater along with this fab denim skirt, both gifts that Christie sent.
I bundled up in my python jacket.
Jacket (Bebe, thrifted), bag (Danier Leather, consignment), scarf (Danier Leather, thrifted), gloves (Parkhurt), sweater (Merona, swap from Christie), skirt (Jones New York, swap from Christie), boots (Miz Mooz).
Today, I wore two of the new items I bought this weekend: the skirt and the shoes:
fringe skirt family, this one is a very orange-y red and is quite a lot shorter than the other two. It was overpriced at $32.99 on consignment, as it's not sewn very well. After wearing it all day, I noticed it has some marks on it, and the stitching is not done very well. It's not lined either. I'll probably consign it after I've worn it another time or two.
But it fit well and it was fun to wear!
Cydwoq (mine is the Rho) and those don't come cheap. There is another pair at the same store that are flatter that I also have my eye on. Maybe after Christmas?
I first saw Cydwoq (pronounced "sidewalk") on Audi and they seemed really odd to me. Maybe my eye has adjusted, because I think they are amazing now. I am in deep lust with their Victorian-style boots.
They are fully handmade and although they don't have any padding in them, they are one of the most comfortable shoes I own.
Top (Talbot's, thrifted), cami (InWear), skirt (no label, consignment), tights (Esprit), shoes (Cydwoq), coral bracelet (Plum), blue wrist-wrap (Club Monaco), black bracelet (Le Chateau), earrings (The Cobbler).
