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.
I love the Periodic Table of Awesome skirt. In fact, I love every skirt in this post. And that coat is a great find.ReplyDelete
Looks like you got the weekend formula down pat: Awesome tee + funky skirt + cool boots.ReplyDelete
So cool you got to meet a fellow blogger. Heading over to check out her blog.
Great score on the flats and the coat. I think that's a super cool puffer coat. It's hard to find really warm puff coats that are both visually interesting and warm.
Sheila, you are amazingly stylish. I wish I had 1% of your talent at putting things to together.ReplyDelete
Thank you for SUCH a wonderful day Sheila!! You were such a great shopping partner--I couldn't shop for 4.5 hours straight with many people! I'm so excited to see you wearing that fabulous coat right away! You can be sure I'll be wearing a new-to-me outfit tomorrow.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great weekend.ReplyDelete

If I ever find out where you live, I'm going to sneak into your closet and steal that satin coat. The bow kills me!
You and Lorinda have exactly the same shade of red!ReplyDelete
Sheila, I love the first outfits of this post so much, I have left the window open on my pc to inspire me this morning! You are so stylish.ReplyDelete
