Another fabulous sunny and warm weekend, kicked off by a quiet Friday. Here's what I wore:
The jacket is my lovely Smoking Lily one - a longtime favourite. I last wore it here in May over my Spanish Ladies dress.
here (3rd outfit) in July for a casual brunch out.
here in August with purple lace.
Jacket (Smoking Lily, consignment), dress (Coldwater Creek, thrifted), shoes (Wonders Ayers/Vizzinis, Fluevog, dyed by me), belt (Nygard), brooch/earring (vintage), earring (local), lapis lazuli/Fulvia Ring (Wendy Brandes).
I popped out during Friday to get myself a Subway sandwich; the Subway happens to be next door to a crappy consignment store. I found this on the $5.00 rack.
Friday night, L and I hung out and played games, and just had some chill time. Vizzini was up for the challenge.
|"Mmph, must you always be in my face, woman?"|
On Saturday, we played Ultimate - it was really hot and bright, but with a weird wind. I didn't feel like being too fancy on the field.
I'm feeling good about going to the gym. I like that my arms have some definition.
I need to dye my hair, but I have a haircut next week, and I want to wait until after that.
here (2nd outfit) in June again for Ulty.
here, last outfit.
Jacket (Ann Taylor Loft), dress (Planet, thrifted), shoes (Born, consignment), earrings (local).
After brunch at the diner, L and I came home and prepared for MANsday and Winesday. MANsday is Musical Appreciation Night, when all the menfolk gather and listen to each others' musical theme lists. Winesday is when all the womenfolk bring wine and food and hang out all night.
I also dyed my blond streak purple, which didn't work well, and now it's a pale pink. I don't mind it, but now I'm thinking about all-over purple-over-grey hair like Kelly Osborne. Why the heck not?
This is my Periodic Table of Awesome cardigan (you'll see why in the next picture). I don't wear this as a "good" piece any more. I feel like t-shirt materials are not part of my style any more; I prefer more structured items. I wear this cardi around the house. I last wore it here (3rd outfit) over a year ago, in August 2013.
MANsday was hosted by L at our place, so I walked the four blocks to Karen's place. My skirt fluttered delightfully.
here (2nd outfit) out for an afternoon painting session at Beacon Hill park in August with Mom and Elaine.
here (3rd outfit) in August with cream and stripes.
Homegrown vintage bling:
Cardigan (Smoking Lily), skirt (Le Chateau, consignment), shoes (La Canadienne, consignment), rings (all from the 80s), death star ring (Oscar & Libby's).
I slept in a little today, then headed to town to get groceries.
The vest is still okay - good vests are hard to find - and will work with the somewhat androgynous look that I'm liking for fall. I last wore it here over a year ago with these same shoes (and a bunch of clothing I've since given away). Hmmm...considering that, I think I may be done with the vest as well.
here in May with mushroom.
The skirt on the other hand, is still one that I like. It'll be packed away until next March.
here (ulp!) in July 2013! Again, I have to reconsider, based on the fact that I have not worn it in over a year! I am going to ponder it over the next couple of weeks before I decide if it stays or goes.
here, and last worn here earlier that month here with flowers and yellow.
Vest (InWear, consignment), blouse (no label, consignment), skirt (Y Petites, consignment), shoes (Chie Mihara).
I popped into a consignment shop after groceries to see if anything caught my eye. I found my Christmas dress!
It's by Eliza J, and was marked down to $54 from $69.
I also found these sweet black leather and grey suede shoes.
I love the squared heel, and again, the menswear vibe of them.
How was your weekend? Have any big scores?
The Fluevog Vizzinis are so fabulous, every time I see them! Love your Christmas dress and all the weekend looks too. xoxReplyDelete
Can't beat a denim jacket over a colourful skirt, so I'm liking the first outfit very much!ReplyDelete
I think the pink/purple streak looks great, and your Christmas dress is a beauty. xxxx
I think the Kelly purple hair would look really good on you! Just saying!ReplyDelete
WOW, aren't you a thrift shopper ? Able to find something worth they even in the shop next to Subway ? ;)ReplyDelete
The Eliza lace dress is fabulous. I have to sit down this week and FIND a red carpet - gala dinner worthy dress for an upcoming event in Switzerland - so you can only imagine the headache. Something like this would be red carpet worthy… maybe I should find me a lace dress.
I'd be dumbfounded by the Subway detail if I hadn't been to Canada and realized they smell good up there, as opposed to the toxic waste dump they all smell like in the States. Something about bread additives, I suspect.ReplyDelete
Regardless! Had a good laugh at you being over the one style that made me light up and go, "Ooh! I should try that again." :D
