One thing (among many) I have learned about blogging is that in order to have interesting stuff to post, you have to DO interesting things. Go places, experience things, have fun. Write about them later.
- Dress - H&M, consignment; last seen here at the beginning of April
- Shoes - Camper; last worn here with ginko and a lost flower (never did find it)
Of course, I immediately abandon him to go shopping after. I had to get some supplies for Crafternoon, and well, of course I had to have a wee peek around a few of my favourite thrift stores, right?
|Coffee, the best accessory!|
- Earrings - Oscar & Libby's
In addition to crafting supplies, which I left on a counter in a department store for about 30 minutes, but were still there when I went back (phew!), I did buy a few things for me...
The first stop was The Patch, where I gritted my teeth as hipsters cooed over the
|Behold, the copper glory!|
And check out the back:
Definitely not vintage. It's by Asos and was $16.95.
Another score with another piece of leather, this time a skirt.
And it's by Mackage, and it's made in Canada! And since it's from the ".com" era, we can safely assume it's not that old either. They have a similar skirt (this one, linking 'cause I love) for $490.00 US on their site.
This is not a size 2, though. Maybe a size 6.
From there, I cruised over to the WIN Warehouse Store, where I found another pair of skinny cropped pants.
I strolled a little further afield to the WIN Boutique, where I found this lovely dark green shell.
|It came with the scarf/belt.|
I also found a brand new pair of lacy black tights.
And finally! The perfect black wedge finds me.
They are Ralph Lauren as well.
After an evening of board games with L the night before, I dragged my butt down to get groceries and then bused over to Caro's house for Crafternoon!
We made tissue paper flowers! Yvonne took all these pictures - thank you, sweetie! We had planned to throw a big surprise party for her this coming Saturday, and to make flowers to decorate the party house, but her hubby accidentally invited her...so we just rolled with it and invited her to Crafternoon with us.
|Karen, me, Caro, Cat|
|The wine had nothing to do with blurry pictures, we swear.|
|Caro, Cat and Vero|
Caro's place has a lot of original art - it all seems to go so well with the flowers.
I made a lot of them.
|"These are flowers."|
Look at all those beautiful colours!
After Crafternoon's shenanigans, I was rather tired when I got home. I barely made it through "Game of Thrones" (go, Brienne of Tarth, best character!). So, no blog last night.
And here we are at Monday morning.
- Shirt - Tabi, consignment; purchased here last weekend for $18.98
- Skirt - Chia, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here (4th outfit) a week ago with grey and black
- Shoes - Franco Sarto, consignment; purchased here in October 2015 for $24.00, and it's finally warm enough to wear them!
- Necklace - 2028
- Earrings - local
- Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
And there you go. This is the last week of my April "capsule" - I'll be doing a new one for May, with the same loosey-goosey approach of swapping things in and out if I like. There are only a few pieces that survived April all the way through; some revealed themselves to be workhorses, and some...not so much.
I'm linking up with:
Get over there!
