Monday Buffet

Thank God it’s a short week! The sun is shining today in Vancouver and it’s going to be a balmy 20 degrees, which is one part awesome (totally wanna break out my new Matt Bernson sandals) and one part sucky (cuz I am stuck inside at work). Still, it’s a great sign that YES Spring is here, it wasn’t just teasing us over the weekend.

Speaking of the weekend, I went back to the yacht club on Saturday with my Nine Inch Nails (see previous post) photographer Josh and treated him to some yam fries and pinot grigio. This time I took the opportunity to look a little more nautical with my white wide-legged sailor pants and royal blue dolman-sleeved sweater. Josh was once again rocking the yellow Fluevogs.

Sweater: Kenzie Girl; Sailor pants: Suzy Shier; Flats: Marc Jacobs; Bracelet: F21; Purse: some chain store in Italy that has little crowns as their logo….



Josh brought up an interesting observation about my NIN outfit though – the coat was very Lucille Bluth. For those Arrested Development fans out there, I think you’ll agree that he’s right on the money lol. This is totally a coat she would wear when she’s ordering one too many at the country club or trying to show up Lucille Two. (fuck, I gotta watch that show again – Josh I want my dvds back!)

The Lucille Bluth Coat

I was going to do a little post on my fav new purse because it’s got so many good things going on: pastel pink, grommets, studs, tassels, fringe, lace, crochet embroidery, soft leather, chains, fun lining….but decided maybe I should do a whole “This is the inside of my purse” photo.

It’s actually very funny because I normally carry big purses around and they are full of all sorts of crazy crap yet today I just grabbed this small one instead. Fits a lot in it considering but it also makes me look kind of neat. I should do another post like this tomorrow to show what the inside of my other bags look like – freakin’ war zone.

Anyhoo, I'm off to 7/11. It seems after losing my apetite all weekend long, it's finally back and I'm craving...sour candy!

So fun! You are yachting fabulous in that first outfit, and red carpet ready in the second - divine!


Odette said...

Arg you and your balmy 20 degrees! That weather had better stick around for the next few weeks! :)

Love the purse btw! ;)

Tina { Luphia Loves... } said...

that shade of blue looks fabulous on you! and wow that coat is so so beautiful!!

ps, just added you too :)


Jordan said...

That jacket is so cool. It looks fabulous on you. I also love your new pink bag. It's super cute and great for spring! It's always a treat seeing pictures of the contents of women's handbags. I noticed that you use L'loreal voluminous mascara. I used to use it myself, but then I switched to Dior's Diorshow. It's the best mascara I have ever used, and I think you might love it. I highly recommend it. Your gladiator heels are to die for. I need to buy a pair. Were yours expensive? I think they are the perfect shoe for you! You're looking great, by the way. I hope you get some warm weather soon, or else you can come visit me in Phoenix. ;)

Love the shade of blue you are wearing.
Also, the Lucile Bluth comment reminded me that I need to hunt down some DVDs of that show and get some laughs and style inspiration. I love Portia's character--and she is stunning!

I'm so happy, your blog works for me on this computer!
You are insanely gorgeous m'dear, and I loved nosing inside of your bag.

Sour candy is the best candy, we don't get anything much decent over here, but I eat enough of it regardless!
