My apologies - I hadn't intended on skipping my regular bigass weekend post, but by the time I got home from shopping with Yvonne, our "recovery drinks" had done me in. I conked out on the couch for the evening.
So today, you get the bigass wrap-up, plus Monday's outfit, PLUS a ton of cat pictures. If this is what you came for, read on. (If you came just for the cat pictures, then scroll down).
Let's start with Saturday's Outfit for Ulty.
- Dress - Cici; last seen here (3rd outfit) in July 2015 with magenta
- Shoes - Modern Vintage, thrifted; last worn here a week ago with mustard and leather
- Belt - thrifted
- Necklace - Givenchy, vintage 80s, vintage fair
- Earrings - thrifted
After brunch, I rushed home and got ready for the theatre. Mom and I had our Saturday matinee of "Puttin' on the Ritz" at the Belfry Theatre (review here).
- Dress - Stop Staring; last seen here (3rd outfit) in September for Elaine's birthday dinner
- Jacket - H&M, consignment; last worn here in February with houndstooth
- Shoes - Sencha Teapot, Fluevog; last worn here in October 2015 with pastel plaid
I actually got a shout-out during the show - one of the female performers was doing a little interaction with the woman in front of me (putting a feather boa on her), and said, "Nice fascinator!" to me.
A dress like this requires a dramatic jacket, don't you think?
Vizzini was very excited about the fascinator.
|"I'm sure I saw some feathers around here somewhere."|
Simple red bling:
- Purse - vintage, thrifted
- Fascinator (in pictures above) - Funk Shui
- Earrings - Tania Gleave
After dinner, L and I chilled for the evening with Vizzini, some wine and a board game. Vizzini wasn't too interested in us.
|"Can't talk. On patrol."|
|"I heard reports of suspicious activity."|
|"Aha! I spot a perpetrator!"|
|"What is this? Could it be...?"|
|"That cat is sleeping on the job! I'll have to report this."|
- Jacket - Club Monaco, thrifted; last seen here last week with baby blues
- Sweater - Lacoste, thrifted; last worn here a couple of weeks ago with plaid pants
- Skirt - Melanie Lyne, consignment; last seen here at the same time as the jacket
- Booties - Dirty Laundry, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) for a casual weekend earlier this month
- Earrings - local
I was early to meet Yvonne, so I quickly zipped into Flavour Upstairs - and what do you know? I scored a new red pencil skirt!
Yup, it's wool. And made in Vancouver!
It's got pockets, it's a great length, and even better...
We both had fabulous luck at My Sister's Closet. It's a consignment store (where sellers get a percentage of their goods sold), so I expected to spend a little more than when I'm out thrifting. However, I spent just over $100 and got all this stuff below.
I scored these Betsey Johnson tights for only $4.00.
I was thrilled to find a replacement for my black leather pencil skirt that's too big.
It's by Tribal. I love the zipper detail.
I made squee-ing noises over this dress.
This blouse is nearly identical to my "fruital" blouse, but it's floral. So...uh, floral.
I was skimming through some fashion mags at the spa where we had our brows done, and saw that "pajama dressing" is a thing. Sure, why not? I remember wearing an actual pajama top of my grandfather's back in the 80s (it was pale yellow flannel and I loved it).
It's by Tabi, and was $18.98.
*ahem* Sorry, must get control over myself.
I also found a pair of shoes. Hey, Wendy, what is it you say?
Never is the next new thing"? Did I ever think I would own a pair of chunky black hidden-heel runners?
Nope, never. But I love them. I wasn't sure what brand they were - apparently, this says "Ash".
And here we are at today! I promised Ann I wouldn't keep counting my hair as purple in her theme this month for "52 pick-me-up.
- Jacket - Comrags, thrifted; purchased here for $14.99
- Blouse - Jacob, thrifted; last seen here in August in a truly awful outfit
- Skirt - Chia, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here with just a smidge of colour
- Shoes - Gentle Souls; last seen here in February while adamantly amethyst
- Cuff - thrifted
- Earrings - gift from Lise

- "52 Pick-me-up" over at Ann's SpyGirl
Go see what everyone's wearing! Run!
Hey, Vizzini, you're a star in "Visible Monday", you monster. What do you have to say for yourself?

My ABSOLUTE FAV is that black and white polka dot dress. Its AMAZING on you! its gorgeous, love it!!ReplyDelete
I'm reading and learning so thanks for your great sharing on here about fabrics and brands. I am soaking it up :)
Thanks, Jodi! The dress is an ethically made one (just try and NOT order one off their website!), and it's a very dark navy background.Delete
i love prints, polka dots, flowers, unique textures and patterns....LOVE IT!!! you rock!......i have an all black cat with a white splotch on her belly. she is sitting here looking at your blog with me, little four legged DIVA!ReplyDelete
Aw, she recognizes a fellow diva (can a male cat be a diva? Vizzini sure is).Delete
Oh, olive you in olive! And in your going-to-the-theater outfit, fabulous. Great shopping as per always, love those new earrings. Thanks for linking up and give Viz a kiss from auntie Patti, xoxReplyDelete
Thanks, Patti! Viz is not much for kissin'.Delete
That second outfit is why I want to be your friend. Such elan! Such flair! Such zest for life!ReplyDelete
You just want to borrow it...right?? ;-PDelete
Four marvelous looks and did you hear my scream ? I LOVEEEEEE the Zara dress and the button down blouses, great finds dear Sheila.ReplyDelete
I thought of you when I found the Zara dress!Delete
Lovely outfits! I love the spotty dress - very Roland Mouret! Loved the red jacket with it, too. The chartreuse dress is fantastic and the yellow jacket looked perfect with it. Loved the monochrome look as well. You have scored some great finds.ReplyDelete
I'm with you on the coloured tights - snap them up!!
Vizzini makes a very good sentry...
Have a great week.
Thank you, Veronica!Delete
I see that Officer Vizzini is still in love with "his" new furniture ;) Why haven't you been wearing those marvelous grey wedges? If I could get my bunions into those shoes I would wear them with EVERYTHING - the shape is fabulous!ReplyDelete
LOVE your "Puttin' on the Ritz" outfit! The dress is so flattering on you, and you accessorized it perfectly.
Oh yes, we have named the long benches the Cuddle Benches. He loves them, lolls about on them all day. I know, right? I need to wear those grey shoes more.Delete
Thank you, m'dear!
I don't get to go to the theatre often, but when I do, I always dress for the occasion - why, it'd be rude not to. Your red jacket over that spotty dress looked perfect, posh, smart and very you. Shopping for you is such an easy pastime which does make me a bit envious. Yes, I know I've just done a mega shop, but it has to last me for months. Glad you found a replacement for that big ol leather skirt xReplyDelete
I so agree - everyone should be dressing up! I didn't realize that about your shopping - I am lucky to be able to shop whenever I like.Delete
Holy crap, major score on those sneakers. Also love the last photo of VizReplyDelete
I can't wait to wear them!Delete
Thoroughly admiring the entire ensemble you wore to the theatre with your Mom. Retro and sexy and fun and cool! Cheers, LaurieReplyDelete
Thank you, Laurie! I felt like a million bucks in it!Delete
