What a crazy month - so much going on, and then to be sick on top of that. But it is what it is, to be trite. Let's move on.
So...I stayed home from work on Tuesday and slept all day. However, I couldn't find coverage for my WW meeting, so I actually wore this exact outfit both on Tuesday night and on Wednesday back at work.
Thank you all for your good wishes - I am so exhausted, but hanging in there. It's a weird flu; no congestion or stuffiness, no sore throat, just utter tiredness and the urge to sleep.
This is my awesome shirtdress, last worn also with red, back here in August.

The red stuff:
here in February without the ankle harnesses, with primary colours.
Dress (Talbot's, consignment), boots (Adrian Agnes, Fluevogs), belt/earrings (Plum), cuff (Rimanchik), ring (Oscar & Libby's).
After work, I met up with the Hostess of the Humble Bungalow, the lovely Leslie, for dinner and a shop at Value Village. We had good luck last time (zoiks, has it really been 2 years?), but I was the only one who came away with a couple of purchases. There were too many silly teens looking for Hallowe'en clothes at VV - so annoying.
Anyway, this skirt came home with me:
I had 3 pairs of shoes in my basket including a pair of Italian-leather orange pointy-toe pumps that I'm sure I will regret not buying (at least for a little while), but these were the ones that made the cut.
I would have liked to have shopped for longer, but I had no energy after about 2 hours. Another time, Leslie!
Today, I had to wear the new shoes:
I love this jacket - it's the Leia Jacket by local maker Bonspiel aka Ellen (Etsy shop, linking 'cause I love). She mostly does leather work now (my business card holder is by her). I ran into her at the Vintage Expo last month and told her I had the jacket - apparently she only made a few of them, so I have a cool limited edition.
here), where I wore it twice (last time here). It's a bit tricky to style, as it needs a belt and it has that wide stand-up neckline.
I last wore it here in February with pink velvet.
Wendy Brandes rings, naturally.
Jacket (Leia Jacket, Bonspiel, consignment), skirt (Tobias, thrifted), shoes (Nine West, thrifted), belt (local), rings (Wendy Brandes).
And now...off to the couch for some more rest. Ah...the weekend is nearly here. I know you are all anxiously awaiting my big Traveling Yellow Skirt appearance, but I have another busy weekend ahead. Stay tuned!
