Are ya ready? Let's get 'er done!
L and I were up early for brunch, and DROVE to Pluto's, which felt very decadent indeed. Vroom, vroom, take us to town, Vlad!
- Sweater - Maison Scotch, thrifted; last seen here (2nd outfit) in February 2020 to see the Beaches in concert
- Skirt - H&M, consignment; last worn here (3rd outfit) in June 2020 (Flashback there on it)
- Shoes - Truths Makena, Fluevog; last seen here in September 2020 for brunch
- Leather blazer (below) - Danier Leather, thrifted; last worn here in December 2020
We had to run an errand (exchange a belt I bought for L), and wanted to get home quickly to make sure we didn't miss too much of the games.
I love this wool sweater - it has a really wide neck, and I often go "full Flashdance" and wear it off one shoulder.
The skirt is fun. I love that it has pockets and it is very swooshy - I chose a full skirt for clambering in and out of the bucket seats in the car.
Outerwear - we had a lovely sunny day.
- Purse - Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac, thrifted
- Necklace - Zsiska, gift from Mom
- Sparkly cuff - Swarovski, consignment, gift from L
- Fang bangle - Alexis Bittar, consignment, Sidney
- Volcano ring - vintage 70s, Mom's
- Blue ring - vintage 70s, Mom's
- Silver/onyx ring - Tocarra, vintage fair

After a bunch of couch-surfing/football-watching (none of which went the way we wanted, sigh), we got ready for our Winesday/MANday Zoom Happy Hour in the evening.
Zoom call outfit requirements:
- Upper body interest
- Below the waist surprise (visual interest)
- Easy to sit in
- Dressy! I have so many dressy clothes, and I consider this "almost a real party", so I'm working to integrate some of my party clothes.
Remember: Life is Short; Wear the Clothes!
Check it out - KLASSY! I have my Roots lumber socks on (a Canadian classic!). *snort*
Mixed metals bling:
I went more with echoing the shapes in the embroidery on the skirt than for any other cohesive metal matchiness.
- Necklace - All Saints, gift from Dominique
- Copper cuff - Karen's
- Pewter cuff - Robert Larin, 1960s, vintage mall, gift from L
- Earrings - consignment
- Volcano ring - Mom's, vintage 70s
- Silver/smoked topaz ring - Anneli Neuman, Sweden

Flashback: Truths Makena, Fluevog
Over the past few years, I've been leaning more towards flatter heels - some of that is age (oh, my poor feet, how I mistreated you for decades in high heels), and some of that is wanting to have nice shoes to go shopping in or to walk around in that don't kill my feet.
These were my first pair of shoes from the Truth Family of Fluevogs - since I bought these here in November 2017, I have also purchased the Pilgrims (Flashback here) and the Teah boots (Flashback here). I know how this shoe last fits, so I know my size in any other shoes or boots in this same Family now (9.5).
I wore them twice right away in November 2017, the first time with my striped Dries Van Noten skirt, which we shall see again.
My "chicken" top was passed along last year.
A week later, still in November 2017, I wore them in an outfit for brunch, a vintage fair, and to see a movie with Elaine (on Dries Van Noten, which is why I'm wearing my Pirate Skirt by him).
This was a shopping outfit in December 2017.
This outfit is also from December 2017, when Mom, me, Cat and her mom went to see "Chicago" at the theatre. I froze in this outfit, but don't I look fabulous? Jacket Flashback here.
The only thing left from this January 2018 outfit is the shoes (and the belt and jewelry).
Another shopping outfit from January 2018.
Here's my stiped Dries skirt again, in February 2018.
This is the same grey skirt as above (this was the last wearing of it - it had moth-holes).
This outfit is from when Ally came to visit in April 2018.
See how nicely the metallic shoe goes with all these shades of grey?
I wore the shoes to the Ultimate field in July 2018. I don't know when we'll be able to resume playing Ultimate Frisbee - maybe next August? Fingers crossed - I really missed playing in 2020.
I have a circle theme going on here in August 2018.
I also let go of this lilac and silver vintage dress - I wore it a ton and just got tired of it.
Another simple outfit from October 2018 (dress Flashback here).
I wore these shoes frequently to the theatre with Mom, as I did here in November 2018, as they are good for walking to and from the venue.
I love this funky outfit from December 2018, which features this weekend's skirt.
This is a fun look from January 2019.
I wore this colourful ensemble to Vancouver in March 2019 - this was our last anniversary trip over, as we had to cancel the 2020 one due to the pandemic lockdown.
I'm just showing the outerwear look here in October 2019 (I must have packed the shoes away for the summer season that year).
This is a work outfit, also from October 2019.
Another theatre outfit with Mom from December 2019. I think I wore my teal Desigual coat over this.
I haven't worn my Thousand Dollar Sweater yet this season - this was the last time, in February 2020.
I wore this outfit for our first Pandemic Book Club meeting, in May 2020.
That same grey metal dress again, in July 2020.
And this is the last time I wore these shoes, for a stroll to town and brunch with L and Nick in September 2020.
Mathy stuff: From the $199.99 sale price, we are down to $7.41 per wear over 27 outfits. That proves that buying good quality shoes is worth it! These are still in excellent shape (I've added a comfort insole to them for my long shopping trips), and have many more wearings in them still.
Do you have metallic shoes in your wardrobe? What's your favourite outfit here?
Back to my football-watching now, folks! Thank you so much for visiting!
