Outfits #16 -18 - May 18-20th - Long Weekend Part 1 (and Vizzini Pics)

I'm meeting up with the gorgeous and shopping-compatible Lorinda today for lunch and some thrift shopping! I'm so excited - this is our second lunch/shopping expedition together (last time was here).

I'm enjoying my extra-long weekend most thoroughly. On Friday, I headed downtown to meet up with Ange for lunch and to give her a little birthday present. I ran into L shortly thereafter and we went for lunch. I did a little b-day shopping for L in the afternoon. 

This is what I wore:
It's the second wear for my Smoking Lily dress (last seen here). I have a long navy vintage slip on under this (you can see a bit at the neckline).

Added my vintage 80s Le Chateau leather belt:
...and my aqua Prepare Guides Fluevogs (last worn here). L said he will be happy when this month's capsule is over so that he doesn't have to see these anymore. Ha!

I'm sad that I won't be able to wear them again until this challenge is done.
The pattern on the hem is very subtle.

It's cooled off a bit, so I added my white leather jacket.
With my red purse, I felt very nautical.

I got this in Vancouver at the Aldo outlet:
It's Mat & Nat and is vegan. It has a fuzzy texture. It was around $40.

I got the necklace at my company's recent Swap & Sip - the beads are stone and glass.
I like red and aqua together!

Jacket (Le Chateau, consignment), dress (Smoking Lily), shoes (Prepare Guides, Fluevog), belt (vintage 80s, Le Chateau), necklace (swap), cuff (Shi Studios), earrings (Plum), ring (Wendy Brandes).

I met L and Nick back downtown for a drink - I had to change.
This may actually be one of my favourite outfits this month. I wanted it to look a bit like a fancy dress, so I kept all the colours pretty close. 

I last wore the blouse here, and the skirt here (with the same shoes). 
I really love the fit of that blouse. It's a keeper.

I did a bit of walking around as we met up with Karen, then went for dinner.
I liked the contrast of the chartreuse with the orange. I last wore the jacket here (2nd outfit).

Jacket (Alison Wonderland, consignment), top (Michael Kors, consignment), skirt (Talbot's, consignment), shoes (Hale Bob), belt (Club Monaco), cuff (SkinZnHydez), earrings (Plum).

We played Ulty yesterday, so I wore just this dress on its own to the field and for lunch afterwards.
This is basically a more relaxed version of this outfit, when I wore the dress last.

We had friends over last night to play board games. Fun times!

Dress (Desigual), shoes (Prepare Guides, Fluevog).

Vizzini has been very cute lately.
He likes to hang out on the post on the deck when it's sunny.

He's purring away here:
I love his little white soul patch.

He seems like he's made of rubber: he contorts into the strangest positions.
 He spots the string on the camera:
I had to hide it quickly or he would have attacked.

He's still very easily distracted.
 Then he spots someone on the sidewalk and goes into "vulture mode."
Happy weekend, everyone!


  1. Aww Vizzini is too cute!

    Out of all your outfits, I like the outfit you wore to drinks the best. The top and skirt pair perfectly together :)

  2. Vizzini is protecting you! And that orange/rust blouse is a winner. L. wouldn't hide those shoes from you would he?

  3. All three looks are great but the orange rust tonal combo is to die for! Give Vizzini a hug from me :-)

  4. I just discovered your blog a couple of weeks ago and I love it!!! I am now reading all of the blogs in the archives. You have given me such great ideas. I will be reading every day.

  5. Too bad that L doesn't have good taste in shoes. (haha) Silly man doesn't know fabulous when he sees it! I think they look wonderful with both dresses.

    The orange outfit is my favourite too. It's so perfect with your hair and your skin tone. The drape of the blouse is perfect - not too bulky and not too low.

    Love those Tuxedo kitties. Dougal says "merow" to Vizzini!

  6. Vizzini is a cutie, and I like the teal shoes!

  7. That is one precious little boy; love! Did I mention you look great in that shirt? You look great in that shirt. : )

  8. I just want to hug Vizzini - he is the cutest !
    and that blue dress is perfect, i can imagine that fabric being thick and it just gives you this great fit.

  9. Awww I love your Guides, but they are definitely a divisive shoe! Oh well, L will live. ;)

    I love the out-for-drinks not-dress. The orange shades are gorgeous. And oooh that green jacket just pops with the orange.

    Aww Silly Vizzini! He's grown up so fast. His rubbery ways remind me of little York (who I am beginning to suspect might be double jointed in his front paws by some of the weird contortions he does). I love Vizzini's little beard and white toes, such an adorable tuxedo kitty.

  10. So far behind in my RSS feed reader and am reading posts backwards, but by the time I reached this one, I'm thinking it's definitely time to hunt for a Smoking Lily dress!
