I wish we had one more day in this weekend - I could use it!
We started off on Saturday morning with an Ultimate outfit.
- Dress - Apple Bottoms, thrifted; purchased here for $19.99
- Cardigan (below) - Jacob, thrifted; last seen here (2nd outfit) in April for a Zentangle
- Shoes - Predictions, thrifted; purchased here in November 2014 for $3.00
My only outerwear was a cardigan.
- Belt - vintage 80s, thrifted
- Necklace - vintage fair
So, as mentioned earlier this week, I decided to get rid of a bunch of my really, REALLY high heels, including shoes that just kill my feet.
I bundled them up to take them to the consignment store, but first, let's have a little farewell to them.
- The Blind Faith Hi Rebecca boot by Fluevog - these were last worn here (2nd outfit) in April 2013. Every time I've worn them (which is all of 5 times since I got them in 2011), I've complained about how much they hurt my feet and my legs.
- The Listen Up Mansfield shoe by Fluevog - last worn here in January 2014, where I noted that they were too high for me to wear.
- The aqua and orange Poetic Licence shoes that I bought in Carnaby Street in London in 2010. I last wore here them a couple of weeks ago; these are the shoes that kicked off this little purge.
- The Memories Madly shoe by Fluevog - wow, I haven't worn these since 2011 (here) and I only wore them twice before that. I got them in 2008 when L and I went to Vancouver to see Alice Cooper in concert (go on, have a look here, you know you want to see me in my concert outfit!). They kill my feet.
- The Listen Up Audrey shoe by Fluevog - I last wore these here in the December 2012 30 For 30 Capsule Challenge, where once again I noted how much they hurt my feet and how high they were.
And the last two:
- My glorious purple suede Friis and Co. shoes - I last wore them here in August 2013, so they don't get worn as much as they should. As you can tell by all the inserts, they don't fit and they aren't comfortable. I wish they were both of those things, but they aren't. I pulled all the inserts out and gifted them to my friend Casey's wife, Helene. She has the same size feet as me and loves purple. I hope she liked these!
- My pewter leather Aldo shoe-booties - I don't even know when I wore these last. I think it might have been New Year's Eve 2010, here.
I initially took them to the Velvet Crease, but they turned down every pair, as being too high for their clientele, so I took them to Rich Rags. They jumped all over them (much younger customer base) and were totally excited about them. I will be lucky to get $100 for all of them, but just this once, I didn't want to give these beauties away.
So, goodbye, shoes that hurt and don't fit. If I miss you, I can go back and admire them here on the blog, and read about how much they hurt.
I consoled myself with a spot of shopping. I found this cool drapey sequined vest by Edit by Jeanne Bekker at Rich Rags for $25.00
I went back to the Velvet Crease after I'd divested myself of the (heavy) bag of shoes and boots, and had a good look through everything.
I really liked this linen and viscose Talbots sweater.
I found these sweet off-white Franco Sarto shoes - barely worn!
I'm totally not a fan of thong-style shoes, but these are wonderful on.
I like that they are "Made in the Mountains of Italy."
Today, L and I went to see "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" at the theatre. I had to do a semi-homage.
- Dress - Savvie; last seen here in February with black and purple
- Boots - 1883 Lucchesse; last worn here (2nd outfit) in April with brown leather
I liked the movie overall. I do wish Hollywood would make more superhero movies with women, though! Where is Wonder Woman?
- Obi - local, gift from L
- Studded cuff - homegrown vintage 80s
- Cuff - Guess, thrifted
- Earrings - local
Vizzini has been loving the warm weather. He was snoozing out on the deck before we left.
|"How dare you disturb my slumber?"|
|"You made this sun happen, didn't you?"|
|"Now feed me."|
When we got home, he'd moved to the tile deck floor.
|"Where you gone? I hadn't noticed."|
