Today, all the restaurants closed in Victoria. The schools are closed, most shops are closed. The office was deader than yesterday.

My friends, these are stressful times, aren't they? I find that blogging is actually really helpful to keep my spirits up - thank you all so much for the comments and for letting me know that it's helping you too! I plan on continuing my regular schedule, pandemic and all. Vesto ergo sum! (I dress, therefore I am).
- 2019: It landed on a Sunday. No outfit. Lame!
- 2018: here (2nd outfit), for a Saturday brunch.
- 2017: here. Huh, zero effort that year, I see.
- 2016: here, with green sweater (aw, that's the one that just died) and shoes.
- 2015: here. I still have those shoes and that skirt.
- 2014: here. That's a bit of a mess. I wouldn't wear this outfit now.
- 2013: here, during the brief period that I was blonde. I still have that skirt and those shoes, also worn a year later.
- 2012: here (2nd outfit), with barely any green. I miss those boots - I thrashed them, and gave them to my coworker Christine, so I still get to visit when she wears them.
- 2011: here, and it's two green outfits in one post! I still have the bigass rose and the jewelry.
- 2010: here, same sweater that I wore the next year, and crazy faux leather green croc boots. Those killed my feet, I recall.
- 2009: here, because I accidentally wore my green outfit the day prior, here.
Well, I guess my memory failed me - not all of those were very green!
My cream wool pencil skirt is so perfect. I'm always looking to upgrade my basics, and this one is the apex of cream pencil skirts. Zippers! Wool! Pocket! So pretty.
Outerwear - More people probably saw me in this than saw me in my un-coated outfit.
- Scarf - vintage fair
- Gloves - Danier Leather
It was chilly in the morning, and I was fully done up - my galloping horse scarf at my throat.
- Belt - Emmanuel, vintage 80s, thrifted, vintage fair
- Snake ring - BC Museum Gift Shop, 1985
- Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
- Earrings - local
L and I are taking some extra time off over this weekend - we would normally jet off to Vancouver, meet up with friends, shop at Fluevog and all the interesting secondhand shops in Van, fly home like the fabulous folk we are, just like last year (here).
|"Let me guess. It's that time of year that you leave me alone."|
No! Not this year, little buddy! We're having a stay-cation this year, which means lots of movies, reading and board games. And that means "Kitty Time"!
|"You wouldn't tease me, would you, Woman?"|
Of course I'd tease you, Vizzini - you're a cat!
He does love a tease: mousies, catnip fish, hide and seek, you name it. He loves to play.
|"It's true, I do. Are you really staying home?"|
We sure are! I'm actually looking forward to it - L and I are going to go out into our neighbourhood and do some photo shoots. Good times!
|"We're going outside??"|
Not you, Vizzini, you scaredy-cat.
Hang in there, my friends, we can do this! I'm so thankful for the wonderful blogging community of readers and bloggers. We'll be our own sunshine in this gloom.
