Feb 25th & 26th - Outfits #22 & 23 - A Busy Weekend (and Cat Pictures)

Woo! After today, I have only 3 days left of February's wardrobe! I have to admit, I am excited to move on to another set of clothing. 

On Saturday, I got dressed for my WW meeting, with plans to meet up with Lorinda for another shopping trip afterwards.
I love all the bright bluey-purple against the neutral browns/caramels. My blue tee makes its final appearance  of the month (last seen here), as does the caramel skirt (here) and the Fluevog booties (here).

I accented the pieces with brown tights and a stretchy belt, and my leather wrist cuff.
I'm also wearing my mom's vintage amber/sandalwood choker and my homegrown soon-to-be-vintage brass earrings from the 90s.

Wore my purple wooly coat and faux fur accessories to stay warm.
It's also not too much bulk for a shopping trip, either.

Tee (H&M, thrifted), skirt (Precis Petite, thrifted), boots (Bellevues Libby Smith, Fluevog), belt (Plum), cuff (SkinzNHydz), choker (Mom's, vintage 60s), coat (Tahari), scarf/gloves (Parkhurst).

Lorinda and I have good shopping karma together. There aren't very many people I can shop with, as I'm very focussed. Yesterday, we hit this big Women In Need warehouse store - it carries lots of clothing, as well as furniture and home accessories. I always have good luck here.
 We both did really well - lots of great bargains! Lorinda got two pairs of booties for only $9 each!

One of the reasons I love this store, is that it has skylights. Natural light is awesome.
It's also very well-organized and the merchandise is nicely displayed.

Their fitting rooms are just curtained areas.
 Those are our carts - I load up everything that catches my eye then I try it all on.

Today, I walked to town to get groceries, then stopped at a couple of consignment stores after.
Sadly, as you can see, my turquoise streak has faded right out of my hair. It's sort of a light green. I'm sure that by the time my next hair appointment rolls around, it will just be a blonde swath.

This is my red sweater (last seen here), my awesome leather vest (here) and my tan pinstriped skirt (here).
My brown boots were awesome as always (last seen here).

I added red fingerless gloves and my white leather jacket for walking around.
There was a brief snow flurry (!), which made me wish I'd worn a scarf, but it got sunny again.


Sweater (Reitman's, thrifted), vest (Cabi, thrifted), skirt (Sandwich, consignment), boots (Miz Mooz), choker (Mom's, vintage 60s), jacket (Le Chateau, consignment), gloves (Parkhurst).

The cats have been very cute all weekend. This is Vizzini down the back of the couch:
"I'm really not going to leap up and attack you - really!"
 Inigo stuffed himself into a Fluevog box (L ordered this pair online - sweet, eh?).
Vizzini watches in the background.
 While we played boardgames last night, Vizzini kept an eye on everything from the top of the scratching post.
He just makes me laugh when he poses like that.

Inigo settled down beside me and gave me lovey-eyes.
His purr is so loud.

Inigo is a very floppy cat. He sat like this for a while.
Pink tum!

  2. Love the matchy match with the Fluevogs. They've really had a lot more versatility than I'd expect out of the color pairing.

    Sorry about the streak! Maybe you could find a veggie dye to touch up with on a semi-weekly basis? (manic panic and special effects are brands I'm familiar with). That's what I had to do with blue.

  3. Even the cats love Fluevogs! I am impressed by the size of this store! I too am fairly focused when I thrift, although I've thrifted enough with my daughters to know that one set of eyes doesn't always catch everything there is to see.

  5. You'll always snag my interest when your title promises cat-pictures. :)

    The depth of ingenuity in your dressing never ceases. I'd have never considered fingerless gloves but you make them seem integral. With lessons like these, I'm wondering where to send in my tuition money...
