I had a fabulous weekend! It was entirely spent with my sweetie L, doing things like going out for dinner and brunch, shopping (with and without him), playing games (mostly Arkham Horror) and hanging out. Ahhhh...I feel like my batteries are being recharged.
I figuratively girded my loins today and wore most of what I intended to wear here last week and bailed. Thank you again to everyone who helped me "buck up" and get back on that horse.
I'm much happier with this look (I was called "pretty in pink" several times and you know I LOVE that movie). The solid pink of the dress (last worn here) helps calm down the loudness of the blazer (last seen here). I have a dark red cami (not part of the capsule) on to help make the dress less boobalicious for work.
I wore this new-to-me canvass belt, thrifted for $4.50 - it's reversible (navy on the other side).
I was highly visible so this is perfect for Patti's "Visible Monday" at Not Dead Yet Style. Go check out the other awesome bloggers!
Jacket (Tommy Hilfiger, consignment), dress (Ann Taylor, thrifted), shoes (Miz Mooz, consignment), necklace (consignment), earrings (Caracol), ring (Wendy Brandes).
I did indeed go for a wee shop after L and I did brunch on Saturday. I went to the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store. I have good luck there and it held out:
I went to the Victoria Hospice store, but the one piece I would have died for (a 80s marigold yellow silk trumpet mullet skirt - so much awesome) was torn at the hem, and not repairable. Aw...
I headed over to the Velvet Crease and found a couple of great pieces for fall, including another - yes, another - black leather skirt. It was $40 but it's Danier and is Italian leather (soft like buttah). It also has a zipper slit at the back for adjusting.
this, my other black leather skirt, this one is not high-waisted and is to the knee instead of upper calf. Totally different!
I also found this silky polyester blouse. I know, it's a lot of animal! (and what kind of animal IS that?)
While I was downtown with L, I had to go check out Smoking Lily. I got myself another obi.*
here). The reverse is black with blue and white hashing. I can't wait to start wearing this.

Pictures of Vizzini, because he is a silly cat.
For instance, he sits with this hind legs up by his head.
|Are you making fun of me?|
He's settled in very well to cuddling now.
He's been sitting on this chair a lot lately, which makes me think of Othello. It's been two years since we lost our cranky black kitty...this was his favourite chair to sit in (Inigo wouldn't go near it).
|It's my chair now.|

|I can sit this way if I want.|
