It has been a wild weekend! In case you missed it, I did post Friday's outfit (and post-work shop) here, not as the usual part of the weekend wrap-up. It was a suitably wacky way to kick this weekend off.
L and I headed to town on Saturday morning for our usual brunch.here (2nd outfit) in January, which is the last wears for both this sweater and for this skirt. What can I say? I had a bit of wine on Friday night, so my outfit-picking capabilities were somewhat out of order in the morning. Hee!
This is my entry for "Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. Go, run!
- Sweater - Rachel Roy, consignment; last worn here (2nd outfit) in January

- Shoes - Dirty Laundry, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) over the Christmas holidays in December 2016

I tried on lots of stuff at Flavour Upstairs but only one thing made it home with me.
|"No animals were used in this dress. Most disappointing."|
It's a PVC dress, with pockets and a funky collar. The whole thing is lined in black and white gingham print.
|"I can't eat this. It has no flavour."|
I was regaling Cat with this purchase and she started laughing. "I nearly bought that for you!"
It was only $19.99. No label, though.
Wait, what's this? An additional "stuff" picture? When I got home from shopping, I was rather tired, as was L, so we lay down for a quick nap. Next thing we know - it's 5:10pm and time to meet Cat and Ross for dinner at 5:30pm! Yikes! We overslept!
Off we headed, dinner at John's Place Diner, then a concert at the arena - we saw Elton John! He played Saturday night and again tonight (Sunday) night, and these are the only Canadian stops on his current tour.
here (2nd outfit) in February with ORANGE LEATHER SHORTS).
No, your eyes do not deceive you - the tickets were $195.00 plus a $22.75 "handling" charge. Apparently, you could still get tickets on resale for $500-1200+. Zoiks. Sir Elton is nearly 70 years old, and when are we ever going to see him again?? It was an amazing concert - he played for 2.5 hours straight, all the hits, a few deep cuts. Awesome. Review here.
We hung out at Cat and Ross' afterwards, then staggered home at 3am (danged time change!), and crashed into bed. I was up bright and early this morning to go get groceries, then meet up with Yvonne for a wee shop at My Sister's Closet in Fairfield. I wore easy shopping/walking clothes.
- Sweater - Jones New York, consignment; last worn here in January with red leather trousers
- Skirt - Danier Leather, thrifted; last seen here in January with a spring chicken sweater
- Shoes - Michael Kors, thrifted; first worn here in February with all neutrals again
- Coat (below) - Danier Leather
No rain today, yay!
- Earrings - 10th anniversary gift from L
Yvonne and I both did well at My Sister's Closet. They have a nice mix of interesting pieces.
I loved this dress.
I am pretty sure it's handmade.
I also found this lovely polyester navy blue blouse.
They have bits of bright yellow, green and orange-y red in them, which I think will go well with some of my pieces, both now and once we're into spring.
Our shop went quickly, and as we were leaving we realized, "We missed three racks!" so back we went, to comb through those. Good thing! I found this awesome leather peplum top!
As usual with H&M, you can never tell what their sizing will be like in real life. I usually wear a 4 or a 6, but this 10 fit me perfectly.
MSC seems to be cutting back on selling jewelry, but I spotted this groovy "chaos rose" steel ring and went, "WHOA."
It was $14.98, and it's lurve, all the way.
