Bloom(s)

Jacket? Bloom (here) Skirt? Thrifted Boots? Joe Fresh (similar leather and faux)  Purse? Thrifted 
Necklace? Clyde's Rebirth (apparently she only has materials to make a few more of these so get 'em while you can!)

I think this jacket was meant as a lesson in patience. When Kendi first ordered the jacket for her store Bloom back in February, she told me about it because... well, it's a blazer and it has beading and any good friend knows those are a few of my favourite things (along with brown paper packages tied up in string...;)). What she didn't tell me was that she was ordering it for the fall, so I then had to wait at least 6 months for the jacket to come in for fall deliveries. Patience is not my virtue. I marked off every day on my calendar with a sad face sticker until the jacket arrived. 
Apparently truth telling is not my virtue either.

And since we are speaking of Bloom(s), I got that cheerful bunch of mums for a grand total of $3 from the best little floral shop on Ottawa St. They were so cheap, I had to get my Mama some too... I call that a win, fresh flowers for my house and another step up in the family ranking. Hey, when you have four siblings you do what you need to do....

No joke Jentine, I think I actually bought this exact skirt at thrift last week. On that same trip I found a vintage sequined bat-wing sleeved sweater dress. Thrifting rocks!
