Leopard blouse $6 VV Boutique
FNO 2012 also started my
obsession quest for a mustard cardi which looks good with everything. Guess what? I finally found one at the September 50% off sale!!!!!!!!
Please ignore the hip spot light.
Is that an angel? (I see dead people.)
No, it is a 5yo photographer insisting on taking the shots from the van.
This beauty is Joe Fresh and was only $2!! TWO DOLLARS. Hall of fame welcomes you, Mustard Cardi. We've been waiting for you.
All you people who say you can't wear yellow, I once thought the same thing and I now believe this to be an an old wives' tale! I think yellow (and pink for that matter) look good on anyone; the right tone and shade brightens you. Go ahead and claim to be THE exception but I won't believe it till I see it. I have yet to meet someone who really cannot wear yellow. The end of my rant.
Red accessories add a contrasting element and round out my "rule of 3."
The red seed necklace is from my inaugural VV trip, $2.
The red seed bracelet was a gift but was also thrifted.
The black skirt is an Icebreaker early splurge item.
More on that in a couple months but I *had* to take advantage of the sale while I could.
I hereby invite thrifting enthusiasts and fashionistas everywhere to join me for "Fashion's Night Out VV Boutique-Styled" on Thursday October 10th at your nearest VV Boutique or other favourite thrift shop! If you are in the Edmonton area, I will be hitting the 34th Ave location around 6 and closing down the store, and I would love for you to join me. It is (now) FNO tradition to go out after for a bevvie and snacks to review purchases, for me to tally amounts and cost per piece and, of course, to draw for some of the goodies I will have on hand for the occasion! If you are an off-site ex-officio shopper, please post your best pics on my Facebook page!
Save the date! Thursday October 10...
Tonight's gonna be a good night!
