I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend! It's been very relaxing Chez Us, although we did go out yesterday for a few chore-y things.
We went out for lunch with our friend Chris, so I wore something swooshy.here a couple of Mondays ago.
I'm linking this outfit up to Patti's "Visible Monday" over at Not Dead Yet Style - I was very bright and visible in this!
these gold shoes), whether it's slitting the backs of the heels to make them less sharp on my feet or removing unnecessary elastic (like in my Chie Mihara flats).
Dress (Coldwater Creek, thrifted), cardigan (Bellisima, thrifted), shoes (Aerosoles, thrifted), earrings (locally made), Fulvia ring (Wendy Brandes).
L and I went to Sears after lunch and bought a new dishwasher (our current one is over 20 years old and sounds like a jet plane), which we'll be getting in a few weeks. We browsed around, looking at furniture, and all I could think was, "I could find good stuff so much cheaper second-hand!" I talked L into stopping at one of my favourite second-hand furniture stores, Charmaine's Past and Present (linking 'cause I love).
Now that we have paid off our mortgage, we're looking to replace some of our decades-old furniture with quirkier, cooler pieces. And we scored! We found a beautiful Bombay Company couch (this one) that was regular $1999 for only $799! And it's made in Canada and is in new condition. We get it tomorrow - exciting!
Vizzini was not as impressed with our shopping.

The shoes are my Kenneth Cole Reaction flats that I wore back in March (and froze my toes!) here (scroll waaaaay down).
