Happy Friday! This is a busy week, and tonight is no exception.
Let's get down to business. Here is an outfit:June for $20.00 on consignment. It's Tommy Hilfiger, and the quality is superb. It has a lot of the colours for August in it, so I think I'll be wearing it a fair bit.
Underneath it is a sweater tank that I've had for a long time, at least 5 years. It's by Planet and I bought it new, although deeply discounted, at The Bay for under $30.00. It has a row of tiny buttons that go right up the back. It's dressier than a camisole (being sweater-weight cotton knit) so it's counted in the capsule.
The skirt is also an old favourite. My dear friend Caro owned this; I got it in an organized clothing swap a bunch of us went to in the summer of 2009 - I laughed when I found out later that this was her skirt! The earliest wearing of it I can find it from July 2009, here.
Here's a close-up of the plaid in the jacket:

You'll note that I'm wearing the Chie Mihara ballet flats that killed my feet last Friday (worn here). I couldn't bear the thought of a) destroyed feet and b) wasting my good money on shoes that hurt, so I got out my hobby exact-o blade. Take that, evil shoes!
I don't recommend doing this yourself - I am an experienced hobbyist! - but it was better than not having these to wear. They were about a thousand times better today! I did have a couple of slight rubbing spots, but no blisters. Yay!
Tonight, we're headed to an evening event at the Art Gallery. The artist being featured is William Kurelek (article here, from the Globe and Mail) - as one of "the most bizarre painters this country has produced" and described as a "Prairie Hieronymus Bosch," I am excited to see some of his work!
I would have liked to have created a wack-a-doo outfit for this, but I'm limited by the capsule and having already used up my Wild Card outfit last weekend, so I thought polka dot pants would do the trick.
here. The top is the same as today's outfit, but I pinned this lovely heart that Steph sent me onto it.

I have such awesome co-workers! Look what Kara gave me:
Happy weekend, everyone!
