Ah, Thursday! This means the weekend...starts tomorrow! And even though I have to work on Friday, I've always treated Thursdays like weekends.
- Dress - Sandwich; first worn here with the most fabulous brocade boots in February
- Shoes - Chie Mihara; last seen here (2nd outfit) in September in a seriously wackadoo outfit for Urbanite at the Art Gallery
I'm not quite ready to dress up for the grocery store again, but soon! They have restarted their delivery service - I shop in person (I prefer this to online), tell them at the checkout that it's a delivery, and they bring it to my door. There's no charge; you just have to shop by 2pm and be home between 4-8pm.
When I first wore this dress, I noted that I'd need to save it for warmer weather. I've been wearing it around the house for a few hours, and I love it.
- Snake earrings and hair clip - Red Sky
- Klimt ring - consignment
I pulled the top part of my hair back and secured the clip.
Since I didn't have to lug all my groceries home myself, I noticed that Rich Rags consignment store was open! The Russian lady who runs it is friendly with me, as I've been shopping there for many years - I wanted to help support her, so I left my mask on and had a look around. There was a 50% off on everything but "orange tag" items, and I spent $129.00 on some goodies. I'll try to remember what these all cost, but it wasn't too much (I also bought something for L, but that's a surprise).
The purse looks like a Hershey Kiss from the side.
It's by Nancy Lucia of New York.
I don't have a lot of workout wear, and now that the weather is getting hotter, I've been in need of a light zip-up with pockets - I need to stash keys, ID and my MP3 player, as well as sometimes my camera.
There's a mesh insert across the top of the chest.
This dress is one of those things that looks awful on the hanger. It's a big tan, black and red sack! Oh yay!
The waist has elastic detailing at the back - this means I can wear it more long and lean, with the waist on my hips, or wear it at my waist for a blousy mini look.
That it's by Diane Von Furstenberg did cause me to take a second, hard look at it.
Look at this fabulous pleated detailing on the sleeves!
I couldn't find the fabric tag - it's been removed, but I did spot the hologram.
And noted that is authentic, and also that it's the Edna dress - that helped me determine that this is indeed 95% silk and 5% Lycra.
I'm always on the lookout for a white top. I go through one every year or two, as I wear them and slowly destroy them. They are super-versatile for going with some of the wilder patterned pieces in my wardrobe.
It's by Ann Taylor, and would have been around $80.00 new.
This scarf caught my eye. Look at these wonderful 70s colours!
I know this name! Lanvin has been around for ages! 1889, in fact (link to their history here 'cause I love).
Look at these wonderful handrolled and hand-sewn edges! And there's the label "Made in France - 100% silk."
And with my wee shop shown to y'all, it's time for me to start my weekend! This is a long weekend here in Canada - Victoria Day, which celebrates Queen Victoria's birthday - so we all have Monday off. I'll be back then with tales of adventure! Have a wonderful weekend, my friends, and thank you so much for stopping by.
