Ah, what a lovely and relaxing weekend it's been! L and I went to the pub for dinner on Friday night, then played board games. On Saturday, we went for brunch.
My studded sweatshirt gets another airing. I last wore it here (way down) at the end of December 2013.
this one), which I've had for a few years. The texture is a knit, almost a boucle. I love the deep yellow colour. I last wore it here in September 2013 in an all-yellow ensemble for Monochromania! week.

I napped for a while on Saturday while L practiced guitar, then we strolled to town to go see "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" which was quite good. We came home and had pizza for dinner (homemade), then hung out and drank wine and played more boardgames. Couldn't ask for a better time.
Today, I slept in then got groceries and then meandered down to The Patch for a browse. I don't go there too often, as it's more like consignment prices for crappy thrifted mall stores, but there are some good items here and there to be found.
My indigo sweater is layered over a cami, and was last worn here in January for Winesday. I like it as a casual piece.

I did find a couple of things at The Patch, including this cool architectural blouse:
It's beautifully-made, but someone removed the tag. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a high-end brand, though.
This skirt is one of the best scores I've found in a long time.
$16.95 isn't too bad for a black sequinned skirt.
But this is what makes it a score.
Lastly, I fell in love with this amazing piece.
It's a rigid turban-style, with gold V-trim, done in cream satin, with a decorative fan on the front. And an attached scarf for added Drama. Of course.
It's a little pricey at $24.95, but I think it's worth it.
Okay, that's it for shopping, back to napping. Vizzini has decided that the new couch is his Favourite Thing Ever.

I read on the couch yesterday while L played guitar. I took this picture because I like that Vizzini is in the background, napping in the sun.
