Well, my friends, I hope you have all had as relaxing a weekend as I have had.
- Cashmere sweater - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last seen here in November with fuzzy lavender
- Mohair skirt - Joy Nilsson, vintage 70s, thrifted; first worn here in December 2015 two ways
- Boots - Dirty Laundry, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in October for dinner at friends'
- Coat (below) - Vassali (consignment)
L and I chilled out on Friday night and played board games. On Saturday, we had brunch together, then split up to do some Christmas shopping, and then met up with our gaggle of a dozen friends for drinks and socializing at a pub downtown.
There was still a bit of snow, but the forecast was for -7 (Celsius), so bundling up was needed.
Linking up to "Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. Ha, I am so not in neutrals.
I am not a fan of turtlenecks, but I'll make a rare exception for this glorious blue sweater.
- Necklace - thrifted
- Pin - The Bay, c. 2002
- Earrings - local
I was shopping for L, but might have found a few things for me...like this silk shantung orange and pink iridescent dress.
The silk is slubbed and is woven of orange and hot pink (easier to see in daytime).
I'm not familiar with the brand Big Fish but the content tag says that it's made in Canada. it was $16.95.
I also went to Flavour Upstairs - I realized that my sweater, necklace and skirt that I was wearing were all purchased there! The clerk and I (they recognize me when I go there) had a chuckle out of that.
I found this lovely silk fitted blouse.
The label is Kisca by Komarov, which I'd never heard of, but apparently all of the clothing is handmade in Los Angeles (link about the designer Shelley Komarov here), and is washable. Nice!
There's a surprise on the back:
I found another dress as well:
This is by Mimi Bizjak and also has a "Made in Canada" label. It was $19.95.
So! I'm going to be doing a theme week for this coming week! Want to play along? My company is doing a "Jeans Week" and I don't do jeans, so I'll be doing "Sparkle Week!" If you wear something sparkly this week, feel free to paste the link to your post in the comments. It can be little sparklies (like a brooch or earrings) or big sparkle (like a sequined piece), whatever you like! Go for it! 'Tis the season!
