Hello, my friends! Welcome back - how's your weekend going? I'm enjoying a lovely, lazy Sunday. Let's get caught up!
Jeans Week ends with casual Friday, so obviously, my 80s Versace mom jeans are required.
- Blouse - Tabi, consignment; last seen here in February with green lace
- Jeans - Versace, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) in April for spectacle shopping
- Shoes - Aldo, thrifted; purchased here for $20.65
Let's say farewell with a flashback of our time with the pajama top:
- As above, here with green lame (lah-MAY!) lace in Feb 2017
- August 2016 here with the same skirt
- With another green skirt here in May 2016
- Over a very long weekend (here, 5th outfit) with my outlaws, also May 2016
- With purple leather, here (2nd outfit) in April 2016
It was purchased here in April 2016 for $18.98, and I've worn it 6 times, so $3.16 per wear. Pretty good - and I'm fine with letting it go, regardless.
- Earrings - Stella & Dot, consignment, Vancouver
- Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
And yeah, you'll be seeing some skirts and dresses this coming week!
I'd had plans to go shopping with a girlfriend after work, but they fell through. What's a girl to do? Go shopping anyway! My excuse is that L's birthday is coming up, and I needed to look for stuff for him. Not that I need an excuse.
I found this lovely feather ring at the WIN Warehouse.
I spotted the stamp inside:
I also strolled over to the Patch for a peek around. I found another pair of sunglasses that I needed.
L and I hung out and played boardgames for the evening, then got up and walked to town for brunch. Not enough people for an Ulti game this weekend, unfortuately. It's probably just as well - I dyed my hair on Thursday night and I don't like sweating pink!
I'm linking up with "Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. I had so many comments on my hair all weekend - I was very visible!
- Dress - Armani Exchange, thrifted; last seen here in September 2016 with pearls
- Shoes - Miista; last worn here in March with paisley and lavender (now, that's an awesome version of a pajama shirt)
I love being able to wear contacts and sunglasses on sunny days. These glamourous shades feel very me.
- Brass cuff - vintage 70s, Mom's
- Earrings - Aldo Accessories
- Ring - Fossil, thrifted, first wear
I always shop second-hand first for birthdays and Christmas - you can find some amazing things. My first stop was the St. Vincent de Paul. No luck for L, but I found a couple of things for me.
These are small sherry glasses in a pattern called King's Crown.
I also found a plain black Club Monaco stretch cami for only $3.00, so I got that too.
here 'cause I love), a wonderful local giftware boutique.
I may have purchased that pair of "Bad Ass" underwear up there for $11.00.
And I found a pair of reading glasses.
I can't resist a sale section in any store. I usually love the stuff that other people don't.
I had a browse in Flavour Upstairs - they have a good men's department, but of course, I had a look around for me.
This skirt has been put into the Fall/Winter pile - I shop for all seasons, all year round.
Little grey bricks!
It's by Hucke, and was made in West Germany, so it can't be later than 1990, when West Germany ceased to be. It's probably from the late 80s, I'd guess.
I've seen this shirt a few times at Flavour. Today, it was marked down enough for me to buy it.
I've also seen this kimono a few times. I was feeling it this time (it was also on sale).
Part of the label's been hacked off, but I'm sure this is Diane Gilman, who sells clothing on the Home Shopping Network (my purple velvet stretch jeans are by her DG2 line, also thrifted).
I spotted this cool brass clutch as I was leaving. I've been on the lookout for a gold fancy purse.
It was only $9.99. Whoever owned it didn't even take the plastic protector off the label inside.
I wandered farther afield, and slightly out of town to Verve, a high-end consignment shop that has an okay men's section. I didn't find anything for L, but I found this awesome skirt for me.
I've never heard of Clover Canyon, but the salesladies squeed over it. It was $40.95, and I see it listed online as $50-240, so a good deal for me!
And that it's made in the US.
Today, Vizzini is enjoying the sun.

Oh I like your jeans dress to round off jeans week, and of course I love that beautiful kimono! What's Vizzini like with sequins and beading? Is it just laces and feathers he wants to gnaw on?ReplyDelete
Despite having a lot of pretty printed ones I don't actually have any embellished kimonos and it's a "gap" I think I need to fill in my wardrobe, haha! I've seen so many around lately.
Thanks, Mica! Vizzini is not allowed near beads and sequins (or earrings, or straps, or laces or anything made of plastic). He would chew the kimono to death. I feel very "Mrs. Roper" in this kimono, ha!Delete
The kimono! It's a beauty. Love your newly vivid hair too. Let's go shopping, xoxReplyDelete
Thanks, Patti! Yes, let's! Get up here!Delete
Not to be a weirdo... but I have those exact same undies!!! Bought them at a gift shop on holiday last summer :)ReplyDelete
Lol, I know you're not a weirdo, Erin - but I'm happy to be a fellow Bad Ass with you!Delete
How cute do you look in that sweet denim dress! The shape is so flattering and yes, just right for a little light shopping eh? Talking of which, the scuba skirt is adorable. I can't wait to see how you style this one up.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Anna! I know, I'm excited about the scuba skirt. The waist is on the loose side, so we'll see.Delete
Oh I have to keep on agreeing the Versace jeans look fab Sheila !ReplyDelete
The sunnies took SO GOOD. Great find.
Thank you! They are worth the discomfort because they look so good. Thank you! You are my sunglasses inspiration, Lorena!Delete
You got yourself some fab stuff! I loved the kimono - I can't resist them; I loved the bag and the sunglasses are brilliant and look lovely on you. I also loved the denim dress; it fits you beautifully. Fab earrings as well.ReplyDelete
You'll find something for L soon...
Thank you so much, Veronica! I don't see too many kimonos, which is strange when I think of it, as we have a huge Japanese, Chinese, and Thai population here. The denim dress is a favourite. Oh, I found lots for L, no worries!Delete
Don't know why they're called 'mom' jeans. They look gorgeous on you! I'd imagine 'mom' jeans to be very unflattering but these blue jeans are far from that!ReplyDelete
Probably from when they were last in style (when they also had pleats and tapered legs!), and only moms wore them, implying that they were unstylish and outdated. Not a nice thing!Delete
I wish I could find a denim dress to fit me - I love that one on you. Kimono-style robes are a bit of an addiction with me and I have a hard time leaving any behind if I spy one on a thrifting trip.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Shelley! It's an ongoing quest - I've had many, many denim dresses over the years. Yes, I can see how kimono toppers could get addicting.Delete
