Thanks for all the kind words about my new hairdo! I am enjoying it.
I spent a lot of my weekend out and about. On Saturday, I had to venture down to the post office to pick up a package from Megan Mae! How exciting! I had to stop in at one of my favourite consignment shops while I was there.
My shopping outfit was not as well-thought-out as usual:this dress has three really tight buttons at the back of the collar that were a pain to undo when I had to try stuff on. Also, these boots chafed my ankles after walking for about 6K (I should probably break them in a bit more slowly). They also destroyed my tights.
Ah well. They look nice!
Dress (Club Monaco, consignment), tee (Plum), boots (Skagway, 70s vintage, thrifted).
Yesterday I met up with Elaine for lunch and a bit of a shop. I had to take a dress back to another thrift store because they forgot to remove the security tag. Grrr...I hate that! You can see the bundled dress hanging from the hook on my closet door in the above pictures (yes, it's pink) - have to keep it away from kitties who like to chew on bags.
I picked a better trying-on dress this time:
I had to do my yellow and turquoise combo:
Dress (Oh-Lala, thrifted), cami (Mexx), boots (Miz Mooz).
Today, I wore one of the new dresses I got (I also shopped after work on Friday night).
this zig-zag sweater.
I admit, I ended up looking like this for most of the day:
I thought it was going to rain again, so I wore my Burberry trench.
The dress was such a nice colour and looked so nice on. It was also a good deal:
Sweater (Le Chateau, thrifted), dress (Ann Taylor Loft, thrifted), shoes (Camper), necklace (gift from Megan), earrings (The Cobbler).
One of my favourite things I found while I was out this weekend were these fab sneakers:
And how much did I pay for these babies?
I double-checked to see if I had the "authentic hologram":
And do you not just love the faux fur lining?
Don't forget about Visible Mondays at Not Dead Yet Style!
What, those sneakers are lined as well? I am very impressed! My only Uggs are the moccasins I wear as slippers around the house. Especially like the last two looks. I would have thought the first one because of the cut of the shoulders would have been made of anything but wool.ReplyDelete
You must have great karma -- you attract pretty clothes like a magnet. I envy that.ReplyDelete
The "trying on" dress has such an amaxing print. So jealous, as usual!ReplyDelete
And I'm looking forward to seeing you model Megan's prezzie.
I always manage to wear something inconvenient when trying stuff on, so I sympathise. I think that Oh-Lala dress is one of my favourite things I've seen recently. The print is amazing, and those colours are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Could not agree with you more on the Uggs. I'm shocked to by how cool their sneakers are; all I ever seem to see are the awful boots.
Love your trendy new hair and the LOFT dress!! You look amazing as always!ReplyDelete
I'm 100% with you on Uggs. They are a horrible abomination. But those shoes are a great find - they look like Chuck Taylors. Nothing Uggy about them.ReplyDelete
That sweater is a great bargain find. Looks like the Moschino for Target line.
Those Uggs sneakers are so adorable - I had no idea they made sneakers. Wonderful zig-zag sweater too -- looks so much like you-know-who : > Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday, you look fabulous!ReplyDelete
I love the second dress and the striped sweater :) very cute!ReplyDelete
Sheila: I, too, like the print of the 'trying-on' dress. I like your way of 'winterizing' summer wear! Gives the wardrobe a boost!ReplyDelete
Can't believe this mild weather, but not complaining! Peg - UI
Those Uggs sneakers are really nice looking. I didn't realize they made anything but boots.ReplyDelete
I hate it when the new shoes/boots you're wearing rubs a hole through your tights! So frustrating!ReplyDelete
In other news, those sparkly Ugg sneakers are really cute. I've checked them out a few times as I've gone through the Bay, because... sequined sneakers? There is NOTHING WRONG and EVERYTHING RIGHT about sequined sneakers. I have a pair of silver Rocket Dog sneakers that I wore a few years back in my hip hop class.
Bling belongs on feet, sometimes.
LOVE the yellow jacket!!! And the ripple sweater & dress is adorable!ReplyDelete
Why were you flicking off the cat hair?? Your furbabies are covered in that cat hair and are gorgeous so why shouldn't YOU be covered in their cathair?? At least that's what my cat furbabies (all 3) tell me when they shed all over everything!
I must admit I am not a tennis shoes fan - also must admit that I dread UGGS . But I have to say these are fabulous ! I love the color and they look so warm :)ReplyDelete
AND I just have to say that you remind me of Megan Mae SO MUCH in that picture with the printed dress and yellow cami .
And there I was thinking I was the only woman who would wear shiny silver sneakers to work. Lovin' the pose with the umbrella. The hair, the bag, the fingerless gloves; it's so cool and dapper!ReplyDelete
Crap, I am waaay behind on my blog reading. That's what I get for partying mid-week! Anyway, I'm super excited you got your package so soon.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about the ankles. I could never break in my harness boots, so I sold 'em. They do really look lovely though.
I loove that patterned dress. I mentally call it your "fractal" dress.
The uggs aren't ugly at all! I like how shiny that are. Although the ugg "boots" are hideous imo. They look exactly like what they are supposed to be - house shoes!
The black bobble necklace goes perfectly with those earrings. I hope you get more use out of it than I did. I've had it for a couple years, but only wore it handful of times.
Loft is a really great store. I love their markdowns.
The star dress and yellow jacket...Yum!ReplyDelete
Love the UGG sneakers! I'm envious ... guess I should get out more LOL :)ReplyDelete
Nicely done. That zigzag sweater is one of my favorites; love it with the softer blue.ReplyDelete
