Hey! I'm back! It's been a busy weekend, but I'm looking forward to a quiet week and I'm feeling good. I didn't find the missing copper Renoir earring, sadly, but eh, it's just stuff. I don't get too upset about it (not even when Vizzini eats a pair of Fluevogs).
Where were we? Oh, yes, Friday.
|It's getting dark in the mornings now|
here - all I have still have from that outfit are the tights and the jewelry. I need some new tights!

I headed to the mall after work to buy tights. It's extremely difficult to find tights secondhand that haven't been worn, and it's also tricky to find basic ones that are ethically made. I sucked it up like a big girl. I really hated being in the mall, though. Ugh.
On Saturday morning, L and I went for brunch, then ventured out to power-shop for Christmas gifts for our families. We're done! We just have to get each other gifts now - we just do stockings, but we tend to spoil each other.

After a mid-afternoon nap, I got ready for my company's annual Holiday Gala - although I said I was going to wear the same outfit as I wore to the Unlimited Woman Awards, I did change up a few things.

here in April 2012 - I paid $5.00 for it at the WIN thrift store. The back of it is elastic.
The shoes are all kinds of fabulousness. I danced in them all night!
I wore my black feather fascinator instead of a hat, and wore my Grandma J's faux pearls.

Today, I walked to town to get groceries then over to Fairfield to meet Leslie of Hostess of the Humble Bungalow fame, for brunch and a shop at My Sister's Closet.
I dressed for trying stuff on: easy on/off shoes and top, minimal jewelry and a skirt that doesn't necessarily have to be removed.

here in November when I was a pirate.
Leslie and I both did really well - we both found 4 items. That's such a great store, but I only go once every couple of months because I always find too many things!
Like...my New Year's Eve dress!
This lovely teal t-shirt-y material dress was slotted in with the t-shirts and labelled a tunic.
My Sister's Closet is the best store for shoes. Leslie found a pair of red suede Geox loafers, and I found these sweet leather boots.
These made my heart sing!

I have been on the lookout for a new pair of combat boots since my beloved purple crackle studded ones were passed along.

Hope your weekend was fabulous!
