Ah, a nice quiet weekend. As we are in the NFL playoffs for the next few weeks, most of our weekend time is spent watching the games (my beloved Carolina Panthers are in the hunt!).
On Saturday, L and I went out for breakfast to our favourite diner.
This is my black shirtdress, last worn here (3rd outfit) for a pre-Christmas shopping day with Elaine in December.
here with my space-y jacket and this same obi.
|"Hey, are you leaving again?" wonders my photobomber.|
Dress (Talbot's, consignment), shoes (Neosens), obi (Smoking Lily), earrings (local), coat (Renuar, consignment), gloves (Parkhurst).
On Saturday night, we met up with our friends Chris and Alison for dinner, followed by a concert at the local arena. Since it's still hockey season, they just cover the ice with a flooring, so I was anticipating a cold venue.
Order of Canada last week! (that's a big deal). Here's the local paper's review, and you can also read L's review of their new album and the concert over here at his blog.
I wore my unofficial concert sweater, last seen here when we went to see Lindi Ortega in November. Coincidentally, Devon Cuddy, who opened for Lindi, also opened for Blue Rodeo.
here, 2nd outfit, for the November Winesday), my Docs (last seen here on our trip to PR), and my crackle leather coat, along with fingerless gloves and a silk Ralph Lauren scarf.
Sweater (Wilfred, thrifted), skirt (Animale, consignment), Doc Martens (consignment), coat (Danier Leather, thrifted), scarf (Ralph Lauren, consignment), gloves (Parkhurst), earrings (local).
And now, back to the games!
Sheila, any time you wear that black shirt dress, I want to wear mine (which isn't as great as yours, but nonetheless). However, you have to stop wearing it when it's way too cold here for me to copy you! Brrr -- if I cuddle next to your darling cat can I come live with you in the land of nice temperatures?ReplyDelete
You are my fellow football fan! I like the Panthers but I've been a Dolphins fan (therefore, sad) for many years. I will switch to Panthers in the playoffs, in honor of you : > Love the shirtdress with L's cufflinks.ReplyDelete
You're wearing men's cufflinks?! You crazy cross-dresser!ReplyDelete
That maxi skirt in your concert outfit is wonderful! I love the belted knit over the top. Going to have to try that one when winter kicks in here. I might be waiting a while though, haha!ReplyDelete
Really like the obi belt with the shirt dress too, every time I see you wear yours I wonder if I could pull it off....glad you had a great weekend!
So happy to see your Docs again. You gave me the confidence to wear mine to work on Friday. As I told Y, "If Sheila can do it, I can do it!".ReplyDelete
Your obi and your new shoes look made for one another! You look great in a simple shirtdress.ReplyDelete
Blue Rodeo takes me back...ReplyDelete
I love that first photo of you, such vivid colours and those crazy-asss tights.
Ooo, look at you, showing off your slip and camisole! saucy minx!ReplyDelete
How I long for a quiet weekend...back at work one day and I'm knackered! Speaking of work, that awesome shirtdress is just the ticket for a go to work frock-I must look out for one, or something similar!
I wore my Docs yesterday; they are just perfect when I need a rest from heels!
I'm going to see Blue Rodeo here in Halifax at the end of the month - it will be the second time for me, and I've also been a fan for many years! Love Jim Cuddy and his velvety voice... :) Glad you enjoyed it!ReplyDelete
Those flower shoes are just freaking amazing. Fabulous with a simple black shirtdress!!!ReplyDelete
Those Doc marten's are certainly getting lots of play in your wardrobe!1 love them with the maxi skirt!!
