First up: thank you to my longtime blog-friend Sal for mentioning my gateway lemon/houndstooth outfit in her "Lovely Links" roundup over at Already Pretty. I've known Sal since 2009, when I gave her a "Major Award" (here).
Speaking of major...
This is of course, my fabulous 80s leather and silk crochet top, thrifted here on the weekend for all of $12.50. Get out!
here in November 2013 with rust. It's vintage haute couture, Andre Courreges, thrifted for $5.00. Really. I'm down to $1.00 per wear on it. Yowza!
here for Chinese New Year's earlier this month.
After work, I rushed off to my hair appointment. I need to find a new hairdresser, unfortunately! Mine is moving to London. Immediately following my haircut, I walked a few kilometers to Book Club. I got hit hard by allergies - damn you, beech trees and your pollen (shakes fist)! - so I didn't last too long, although I did manage to eat a bunch of chocolate and drink several glasses of wine. A girl has her priorities.
Top (vintage 80s, thrifted), skirt (Andres Courreges, thrifted, vintage 80s), shoes (Darjeeling Teapot, Fluevog), cuff (Guess, thrifted), studded cuff (homegrown vintage late 80s), rings (Wendy Brandes).
And phew! Now it's Friday! I succumbed to my sucky allergies and took a 24-hour antihistamine (much better, thank you). Now I have to get used to really short hair again.
From fairly conservative this week to right off the charts - this outfit ain't for the shy of heart.
This is my denim backless dress, last worn here in December 2013 with a magenta blouse.
here in December 2013 under a bustier. It's a great layering shirt. I like that it uses cufflinks instead of buttons, so I can match them to my outfit. L has a huge collection.
Wee! My dress is backless!
here in December 2013.
One of my tried-and-true combinations of outerwear:
Dress (Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, consignment), shirt (Club Monaco, consignment), boots (Adrian Agnes, Fluevog), cufflinks (vintage, L's), earrings (local), tie (L's).

Wishing you a weekend of sun and flowers!
