Vested Interest

Wow, what a weekend! Between the RFL FACES fashion shows and The Loft grand re-opening, Nic and I still managed some quality shopping time.

So, from my fashion basket to yours, here are my offerings to you on this Easter Monday!

Both of these outfits evoke a completely different fashion mood, though the colouring, and specifically the crocheted sweater vest, remain the same. I picked this fashion staple up at a new-to-us store scouted by Nic called Gbberish. It doesn’t have a huge selection yet, but there are some quality pieces to be found.

One of the things I’ve found since going to the dark(er) side with my locks, is that there is a whole new spectrum of colours I can wear, not to mention the new hair shops. At first glance the colour scheme may not seem very spring-like, but the mossy greens in the vest and the tones of browns ranging from tree trunk to sand make me think of the foliage and sunshine I am patiently awaiting outside my window.

Being as it’s back to work tomorrow, I gave the first outfit a metro, business casual feel. Hey, if you have to be there you might as well look good, right? I should mention that these pants are from the G.L.A.M. sale with prices slashed by 50%. Some items are being discontinued after the highly anticipated new release, so get these while you can!

The second look is the weekender version, perfect for picking flowers on a crisp Spring morning! I fell in love with this skirt from Creamshop while shopping around the Clothing Fair and it comes in a wide variety of colours and matching tights, which I opted out of this time for a fresh, bare legged look.

Now if only the weekend were as accessible as the weekend fashions!
