Friday 21 December 2012


Big day yesterday.  Last day of work before the Christmas holidays.  Preschool Christmas party.  School Christmas concert.  Major proposal due at work.  (Well, I don't know if you could say "major."  I don't generally do proposals at work so this one felt major because of its uniqueness.)  Today was the perfect day to wear one of my favourite pieces I scored on Monday's 50% off sale - a piece that combines two of my favourite things: stripes and fireworks.
 Firework sweater $3 VV Boutique

Brown, orange, chartreuse and sparkles.  What else could a girl need?
This awesome top revealed a problem in my wardrobe, however.
Disgruntled expression due to extremely unflattering pants.

These wide leg trousers are my only brown pants.  They look better in real life.  At least I think so thought so.  They are higher-waisted, which I told myself was avante-garde.  But it's undeniable.  They look like crap in pictures and they're probably not doing much for me in real life either.  I believe it was these same pants that inspired my last pants shopping.  Looks like I'm going to have to go again and narrow my search for brown work pants specifically.  In the meantime, let's just pretend I'm not wearing a 12" rise pant and appreciate the fireworks...
Sing it with me!  Baby you're a Firework!
Come on show them what you're worth! 

The pants will be donated to VV Boutique and maybe I will wear this fabulous THREE DOLLAR sweater when I go on my next pants expedition!


  1. The pants are bad. I think you overlooked your orange pants, which I think could look cool. You must immediately purge those pants from your closet.

  2. Important update: the pants have been donated.

  3. Thanks for not donating them to me :)

  4. Haha! I love the is so cute! :)
