Hello! I am starting this post today (Saturday) because I don't want to spend all of my Sunday on it. It feels weird doing this on a Saturday.
Anyway, this is Thursday's outfit.
It will also be my entry for "Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style - go, run, skedaddle!
- Blouse - Mexx, thrifted; purchased here for $13.95
- Skirt - Firenze by Santa Barbara, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in May with cranes
- Shoes - Grotesque; last worn here in May with cartoon stripes
- Blazer (below) - GIEFFEFFE by Gianfranco Ferre, vintage 90s; last seen here in April with jungle and orange
I was greeted by a much-missed sight on Thursday morning when I took my stair picture - blue sky! You can see the smoke-line, though - the haze is still with us.
Everyone at work loved this awesome blouse - "It looks like martini olives!" said more than one person.
The skirt is a pearlized acid yellow (close to a lemon-y shade).
|Oops, my shirt is askew!|
And the jacket is a deep bottle-green, with a touch of blue, almost a deep teal.
Gold and green bling:
- Metal belt - thrifted
- Ear-balls - Dior, consignment
- Green ring - consignment
- Amber ring - c. 1996
- Green bracelet - vintage 60s, Mom's
I dragged myself to work on Friday, feeling completely stuffed up. I took an antihistamine to clear my head and that helped. Guh, I hate being sick!
- Zip top - fake Chloe, thrifted; purchased here for $8.95
- Skirt - VanessaVirginia, thrifted; last seen here (2nd outfit) in May with more coral for Winesday
- Shoes - Asos, consignment, Vancouver; last worn here earlier this month in a "try again" outfit with the brolly skirt
Yup, I did not like the look or feel of this top - it felt cheap. It's not even going to get a "Try Again" outfit. Screw it! Into the giveaway pile you go!
I had to roll the elastic waistband once to keep it from dragging on the ground.
Hand in stoopid, useless, tiny pocket.
- Sodalite/silver ring - handmade in Scotland, purchased in 1996
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
- Thermoset bracelet - vintage 60s, vintage fair
- Crystal bracelet - Coro, vintage 60s, Mom's
- Earrings - vintage market
L and I went to bed early on Friday and both slept in, before we managed to drag ourselves to town for lunch at Floyd's.
- Dress - Rachel Roy, thrifted; last seen here in May to the Ulti field
- Shoes - Michael Kors, thrifted; last worn here with the brolly skirt in July
I have an old turquoise cami on under it so that I'm not boobalicious.
The pattern is of horned larks.
Now this is how you jam your hands into you pockets.
- Ring - local
- Earrings - used furniture store
Vizzini's been snoozy too.

Oh, and here we are, now it's Sunday and I'm back (I bet you didn't even notice I was gone).
- Top - Jean-Paul Gaultier, vintage 90s, consignment; last seen here under Marni in May
- Skirt - Danier Leather, thrifted in Powell River; last worn here in May with teal satin
- Shoes - Truths Makena, Fluevog; last seen here (2nd outfit) in July to the Ulti field
- Denim duster - Plum, thrifted; purchased here for $16.95
I wore the denim duster for most of the day while I was out and about, but this is what I have on underneath.
The leather skirt is easy to unzip, ready to try things on.
I loved this fun duster.
Sometimes I wore it open with my hands jammed in my pockets, thusly:
And sometimes I had it done up (no buttons) and tied.
- Shield ring - Nine West
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
- Earrings - gift from Lise
I did very well at both stores. At Duchess and Duke, I went through everything and tried a ton of stuff on. I loved this fine sweater.
This is 100% cashmere by J. Crew.
I checked it very carefully for moth holes, especially when I realized it's 10 years old.
This is a vintage double-knit polyester (so totally breathable, har har) top.
It was only $11.00.
My heart skipped a beat at this blazer. Oh my gherkins.
It's by H&M! Colour me shocked.
Yvonne and I both came away with a full bag of goodies at My Sister's Closet. This navy blue tulle ballerina skirt is the first thing I found..
It's by Trina Turk!
The lining is 95% silk - it feels wonderful.
I am always looking for washable soft, interesting tops for layering.
It's by Dex.
I don't usually buy tee-shirts (I sleep in them, but I rarely wear them out), but I love the deep rich teal blue of this one.
I am really not a purse person, but I am going to try to up my bag game slightly.
The black pyramid studs line the front flap.
It's by Steve Madden, so not that fancy.
As I was going into the hallway to do my last stair picture this morning, someone barged in and got in the hallway.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
