Wow, what a wickedly awesome and cool weekend I have had! So much fun!
Two things first:
Okay, are you ready? And...here we go, this is what I wore to work on Friday.
How do you do something as crazy as this skirt? You casual it up. I'm doing a denim shirt tied at the waist with the cuffs rolled up.

This is the debut of this awesome Skirt of Spectacularity, thrifted here for $19.99. I adore its over-the-top 70s vibe.

Shirt (Mexx, consignment), cami (Spense, thrifted), skirt (handmade, vintage 70s, thrifted), shoes (Enzo Angiolini, consignment), necklace (Trifari, vintage 60s, Grandma J's), cuff (consignment), earrings (don't remember).
I had a minute in the morning, so I went looking for the cat to say goodbye. Not to worry, he was walking his beat along the window ledge.

|"Roll, roll, roll on the tiles."|
|"I'm coming over for a session of leg rubbing."|
And a pre-work cuddle was had.
After work, L and I met up with Mom for her birthday present: dinner out and a night at the theatre. Mom and I have a long history of going to the theatre, and have been season ticket holders for many of the local playhouses over the years. We went to see Tom Stoppard's "Rosencrantz and Guidenstern are Dead" at the Langham Court Theatre, which is in the middle of a residential neighbourhood.
I'm ashamed to say that as soon as the lights went down, I was snoozing. Could have been the stressful work week I've had, or could have been the wine. Heh. I have no idea if it was good or not, but the outing itself was a grand time. I love going out to events.
Saturday morning, we were up bright and early for a game of Ulty! I risked doing Weekend Hair:
I'm feeling the end is near for this dress. I've had it for a few years, and didn't pay much for it, but I think I've gotten all I can out of it.
The cardigan is much more versatile.

here). The whole thing-between-the-toes is on trial; I'm not a fan of it, so these are a stretch for me. However, I am happy to report that they were excellent for my short venture.
Dress (Planet, thrifted), cardigan (Peter Nygard, consignment), shoes (Born, consignment), earrings (local).
After Ulty, we went for brunch, then came home and decorated our new hidden door bookcase.
|"What did you buy me?"|
I love how full the oak trees and maple trees get at this time of year. Happy Solstice!
|"Crows are nesting in my trees!"|
We actually did buy him something - a scratching post for the living room to help wean him off the gold chair.
|"Hmmm...what is this thing?"|
|"I will show this post who is boss!"|
Today, L and I went out for brunch and to spend some gift cards at a mall we don't go to often.
I love this chartruese-y/olive dress. Such a great colour. This is my first wear of it since I unpacked it at the end of March with the rest of my spring/summer stuff. I should really wear it more - the last time is nearly a year ago to the day, here in June 2013! And I'm wearing the same belt with it, ha!
I wonder how these boots will clean up? I have yet to polish them up. They were last seen here on Monday.
Dress (Cici), belt (local), boots (1883 Lucchese, consignment), earrings (thrifted).
I like to browse for cool stuff in antique stores. I was surprised to find these groovy shoes in an antique mall today.
Liz Claiborne...didn't know they did shoes!
The heel has a cool shape too.
Vizzini spent most of today snoozing.

|"The red boots again, eh?"|
