Well, it has been a Very Busy Weekend. As I want to hang out with L and play Arkham Horror, I haven't got a lot of chit-chat.
My silver and gold tee, my purple velvet skirt (and tights), jazzed up with a few rocker-ish accessories.
Of course, I wore my purple coat:
Black tee (BCBGMaxAzria, consignment), cream tee (Noa Noa, consignment), skirt (Cappopera), boots (Gabor), belt (swap from Ruth).
Later on Friday night, we headed down to G++/Limbic Gallery for the launch of Atagamaton, an interactive media installation. I was pretty tired, so I went for a comfortable but quirky mix:
olive corduroy vest, and my Smoking Lily Periodic Table of Awesome skirt.
I layered my black Noa Noa underskirt, wore heathered grey tights and my Victorian walking booties:
Gregory Ball, with whom I had an excellent chat. He's currently featured in the LAB at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. I can't wait to go check it out!
Tee (Mexx, consignment), vest (RW & Co., consignment), skirt (Smoking Lily, consignment), boots (Marc Soft Walk), necklace (The Bay).
On Saturday morning, I strolled down to my local diner to meet up with with fellow Victoria blogger Lorinda! Go say hi to her!
And the weather was nice, so I got a staircase shot in there!
I kept the outerwear simple:
Lorinda and I hit it off well - we have similar shopping methods, which was great. I would pull out stuff for her, she'd pull out stuff for me. We had very good karma! We went to two thrift stores and one consignment shop.

Check out this awesome 100% cashmere sweater she found for $32.00:
She made me promise never to wear these fabulous pearlized flats with tights.
I barely had time to have a nap after shopping before I had to run for a bus to go to Winesday. It was very chilly out, so I wore this new puffer coat that Lorinda had spotted for me:
Check out the back:
It was brand new, tags still on:
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
I have some exciting news coming in the next couple of days: I'm doing a long-term fashion challenge starting February 1st! Details to follow soon.
