red rum

Clearly I am compelled to make up for lost time with this jacket. I hope you’re not sick of seeing it yet. It’s just that it is the perfect topper for so many looks! Is there a jacket that you feel the same about?

ebb and flow

I bought these sunglasses last summer but I neglected to get them fitted. I hadn’t been wearing them much over the last year because they were so big they’d slide down my nose. To remedy that, this past weekend I went to visit the lovely people at Lenscrafters and got them adjusted. Now they’re a perfect fit just for me!

See? No sliding!

Jacket: Costa Blanca (Thrifted), Top: Dynamite (Thrifted), Jeans: Simon Chang (Thrifted), Shoes: TOMS, Watch: Timex (Zellers), Purse: Vintage (Thrifted), Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Earrings: Austrian Crystal (The Bay)

second chance

I love the feeling you get when you edit your closet. It’s very cathartic (my clients have said the same!) I’ve been donating/consigning pieces for years and I’d say 95%+ of the time there are no regrets. Every once in a while I might miss something I’ve given away but that is extremely rare.

Meet one of those regrets. This boxy Costa Blanca jacket. Most of my jackets/blazers are more fitted so this one was the exception. Here’s a picture of me in it in 2008 hugging a very old tree at the Capilano Suspension Bridge. After giving it away I wanted to wear it again but it was too late… or so I thought…

Fast forward to 2011 and who do I find at the Salvation Army: my old friend! You know the saying if you Love something set it free and if it comes back it was meant to be. Well, it looks like me and this jacket were meant to be together!

Jacket: Costa Blanca (Thrifted), Top: H&M (Thrifted), Necklace: Nygård, Earrings: Nikko, Jeans: Simon Chang (Thrifted), Shoes: Eüro Soft by Söfft (Winners), Bag: Elizabeth Arden (Thrifted), Watch: Timex, Red bangle: Haskell (Sears), Sunglasses: Nine West, Nail Polish: Big Apple Red (OPI), YES button: gift
