Cranes and Snowflake...and an Awards Tease

Ah, this is a short week! I am so excited! 
All not-recently-worn things today: particularly my crane cardigan and my snowflake skirt.

The cardigan was last seen in the October 2012 capsule (recap here), and was only worn once (here). It was on the fence then, and I am still waffling over it. I liked it enough today to keep it another round.
The skirt is a favourite, although I tend to wear it more on the weekends for some reason. I last wore it here (3rd outfit) in April with a blue sweater...on the weekend!
I have a little red sweater on under the cardi for extra warmth and for peeking out the bottom of my cardi. I like the black diamond shapes on the back of my shoes.

The stuff:
I last wore these shoes in August here as a swap-out for a pair that hurt my feet.

Yesterday afternoon, Elaine, Yvonne, Cat and Tracy and I dug into my wardrobe and my jewelry boxes to put together our outfits for the Ultimate Woman Awards on Wednesday night. We had a blast - everyone is put together, and I took photos for reference for getting dressed (sometimes it's all blur, especially when you've had a little champagne and some white wine spritzers as we did).

I was reminded of some of my fun vintage stuff:
Oh, yeah, Mom's bracelet, and oh yeah, Grandma J's earrings.

Cardigan (Lucky Brand, consignment), sweater (Reitman's, consignment), skirt (J.J.F., consignment), shoes (Presence Impulse, Fluevog), belt (Club Monaco), bracelet (vintage 60s, Mom's), earrings (vintage 60s, Grandma J's), ring (consignment).

I took pictures of everyone's outfits, as I noted, including mind. Here are a couple of teasers of what I'll be wearing.

We'll all be wearing hats or fascinators!

And bottom:
Duh, I have to wear a pair of Fluevogs!

I'll have another tease tomorrow, and I'll likely be blogging about it on Thursday or Friday (I have both days off this week).


  1. I think the cardi reminds me of your tattoos, which are, naturally, infinitely better. If it's not rocking your socks, just rock the skin!

  2. I have to view this on my wee phone screen bit I really like the coordination of this outfit! The colors pop and look fantastic on you.

    May I add your cardigan to my covet list? Japaneeeese

    It sounds like your award dressup session was such a blast. I can't wait to hear how they come out!

  3. Best of luck at the awards! I'm sure you'll wow them all. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed!! xx

  4. that skirt is beautiful, and I can't wait to see your full outfit from the awards! :D

  5. I am so excited for you and the awards gala. If the event was in Vancouver you'd bet I'd be there, cheering you on like like mad. Your teasers make me very curious. I can't wait to see the whole gang of you dressed for the evening. I love that sweater too but shoes make me hum - they are awesome and look comfy.

  6. Teasers! Good luck at the event - I know you'll be fabulous. I really like that cardigan - email me if you decide against it and you'd like to sell?

  7. Love the sneak peek of the award stuff!! I'm so excited for you!

  8. Love the sneak peek--you will certainly look fabulous!!
    Love the outfit--you should keep the crane sweater--it fits well and is so unique-yet subtle enough it can mix with prints.

  9. Looking forward to seeing the final results and i always like it when you wear your grandma's earrings.

  10. That cardigan is totally lovely! Sad it hasn't come out to play more, but some pieces are just like that. Major congrats on your award!! (Droool those Vogs)

  11. I'm virtually drooling over that divine cardi, but it does kind of have a critter on Can't wait to see the awards ceremony outfits!
