I finally have cable and wireless internet! WHOOOOO! Donovan from Rogers is a wizard! He set up the modem fairly quickly but the cable/PRV installation took a little longer. Turns out my TV is a little old and it didn't like the HDMI cable that he was using so he had to jigger something out of regular coaxial cable. I spent most of yesterday getting caught up on Game of Thrones. Go TEAM IMP! :)
I may not have been blogging but I've still been taking outfit photos. This is a long one...
Dress and belt: Anthropologie (last worn here)
Boots: Cydwoq from Gravity Pope's Toronto store
I bought these boots on a bit of a whim. They were on sale and in my size. I'm not sure about the "furry" uppers and I'm not going to be able to wear them again until fall. I do love the metal heel though.
Dress: Desigual (last worn here)
Shoes: Hush Puppies (last worn here)
You will see these shoes a lot this week. My feet were a mess from all the walking in bad footwear so I just stuck with these shoes which are very comfortable. Maybe not the best walking shoes but certainly better than what I had been wearing.
I like this dress but I think I'll be putting it aside for a while. I wore it a lot during the month I was in TO with only a few things. Plus I'm not as comfortable wearing it without tights and it's definitely too warm right now for anything other than bare legs.
YAY! "New" clothes!!
Dress: Charlotte Taylor (last worn here)
Shoes: Fly London (last worn here)
This outfit was appreciated by my work mates. I'm not sure if everyone realized they were giant ants but no one said "yuck".
I need to replace this cardigan soon. It has served me well but it's starting to pill and lose its shape.
I was glad to be reunited with these striped shoes!
Shirt: Smoking Lily (last worn here)
Belt: from Lut Boutique in Vancouver (last worn here)
Skirt: Chalet (last worn here)
Shoes: Poetic License (last worn here)
I have decided. I hate this belt. I hate the zipper, I hate that it's mostly elastic, I hate how it fits. So I'm going to purge it. Out out damned belt!
I took a back photo but it just showed how wrinkly this skirt gets after a day of sitting. DELETE!
Here's my "Canada Day" dress. It was starting to get HOT.
Dress: thrifted (last worn here)
Shoes: Franco Sarto (last worn here)
Stripes are big right now. As are asymmetrical hems so even though this is an older dress that I found in a consignment store in Halifax, it feels pretty "current".
True confession time (and a PRO TIP). I had to hold the front closed with a big paperclip. Quite a fantastic improvisation if I do say so myself.
And I quite like the back of this. Whoever designed it was thinking when they matched up those stripes into "consummate Vees".
This is a long post. I'm running out of stream.
Cardigan: Knit by me (last worn here)
Dress: forevamore on etsy (last worn here)
Belt: from a store in Winnipeg
Shoes: Hush Puppies (see above)
I like how the back drapes down.
And fishnets! Whooo!
Ok, this is the last outfit since I forgot to bring my camera on Friday.
Dress: Thrifted (last worn here)
Shoes: Hush Puppies (AGAIN!)
Black two days in a row. Must be feeling dark.
I was wearing my "I believe you have my stapler" Office Space pin. Only 1 person in the office got it.
Ok, my next post with be later today with today's outfit and the opening of the new Fluevog Store!
I apologize for how this post formatted. I messed around with it trying to fix it but I mostly failed.
