Weekend! This is a long weekend in British Columbia - we get Monday off for BC Day. And it couldn't be a better weekend, weather-wise! The temps are currently 27 C/high 80s F and there's nary a breeze. I am so glad I planned for warm weather this month.
Friday's casual outfit:
I bought it at Winners in the spring of 2011for $29.99. It's a very fine cotton (made in India), very light, so it's always a summer piece for me. I've previously worn it here just after I got it, here (May 2011), here (July 2011), here (Aug 2011, last two outfits) and here, as part of my 2nd steampunk outfit in April.
I have a feeling I'll be wearing it a lot this month!
The blouse is new-to-me, purchased on consignment here in May.
I got the denim vest on consignment in May 2011 for about $24.99 - I first wore it here.
here last July (2nd outfit, go look at how tiny Vizzini is! Aw!).
And in the footwear department, those are my new Chi Mihara ballet flats. They turned out to be absolutely AWFUL - they have elastic on the back of the heel, and it dug and dug into my feet, causing blisters. I had to go out during my Friday workday and buy bandaids. So sad! I need to find some way to cut that elastic!

On Friday night, I met up with my former boss Tammy - we worked together at Fairweather (when it was a good store - you Canadian gals know what I'm talking about!) back in the late 90s. We get together every 3-6 months and have a fancy dinner out (with lots of wine).
I couldn't stomach wearing the flats, so I changed into much more comfy shoes: my massive gold platforms!
here) were more comfortable than flats!
That gorgeous yellow dress is new-to-me, purchased back here in May for $18.98. It is the most wonderfully thick t-shirt material, and held its shape (and stayed up) really well. I have a half-slip on underneath to help smooth things out a bit.
this necklace that I thrifted last weekend for $7.50.
Since I am getting a new tattoo next weekend, I planned a lot of wardrobe items around that - I've had my appointment for a few months. I can't wait to show off my new ink.

It was still super hot and sunny out after work, so I wore my snow white cardigan again to cover up.
here. How did I manage so long without a white cardigan??
After dinner with Tammy, I went to my friend's gallery opening, where I was joined by L - I walked home in these shoes.
A shout-out to Yvette who was out on the patio at Bastion Square last night and recognized me! Thanks for reading, Yvette!

I was a little bit hungover this morning, so I slept in and skipped WW (hey, it's a long weekend). I dressed for ultra-comfort for post-Ultimate.
This was the perfect outfit to change back into! So loose and flowy...ah...The snow white cardi makes another appearance as a cover-up. The sparkly sequined tank is not part of the capsule - I never wear it on its own. It's been an invaluable layering piece, though! I last wore it here in April's capsule.
Isn't the skirt lovely? I call it the fluttery skirt - I bought it at the same time as the denim vest above, in May 2011, for about $36.00. It's silk and is as light as a feather - it has great movement when I walk. It's a Le Chateau piece.
I've also worn it here (last outfit, July 2011), here (two outfits, scroll down, Sept 2011). I can't find any other instances of wearing it, and it's been packed away with the summer stuff.
I've also worn them here (Sept 2011, scroll down), here (also Sept 2011, 2nd outfit), here (Aug 2011, last outfit), here (also August, last outfit), here (Jun 2011, 2nd outfit), and here (May 2011).

Phew! That's a lot of outfits. Tonight is our good friend Nick's birthday party, so I'll be busting out my Wild Card outfit - yee haw! I'm off for a nap now...Sheila tired...
I'll be working on the July summary post this weekend, and should have it up by Monday. Stay tuned! Hope your weekend is lovely.
