Happy 4th of July to my US readers and blog friends! I hope you enjoyed your day off!
Today, I went less bright - and it was beautiful and sunny out. And here I am in a sweater, a crepe skirt and a full-length vintage slip on!
This is the sweater I bought on consignment back here in April for $26.00. It's by Precis and is a lovely and soft thin sweater. The centre of the leopard pattern is actually a bluey-grey, so I thought it would look nice with my new-to-me-but-maybe-it-was-mine-to-begin-with skirt.
I got the skirt in early June (here, scroll down) at Value Village for $7.99. It's by Tobias (a Canadian-designed and made line that Plum carries), and as I mentioned before, I think this was actually MY skirt that I gave to my friend Jeannie. I'll have to check with her to see if she donated it!
I've worn them before lots, although almost always in summery weather: here (June 2008), here (July 2008), here (June 2009), here (August 2009), here (July 2010), here (August 2010), here (June 2011), and here (September 2011).
Sweater (Precis, consignment), skirt (Tobias, thrifted), belt (Plum), shoes (Jones New York, consignment), cuff (Guess, thrifted), earrings (The Cobbler).
I met up with the classy and chic Leslie, the Hostess of the Humble Bungalow (we went shopping here, back in November 2011) at a pub in Oak Bay. That's Leslie in the centre.

The pub is called The Penny Farthing. I've always thought I would like to live in it. I bet Vizzini would like to walk along these beams.
Of course, a pub called The Penny Farthing has to have...
Thanks for the wonderful evening, ladies! You are both amazing. *hugs*
