Skirt? Thrifted (similar on Etsy  here or here) Jacket? Zara, thrifted 
Fluffy vest? Vintage re-make from Modify Your Closet Clutch? Thrifted Earrings? Vintage, Once Again Antiques

Matt came to help me with something at the shop this weekend and I left him to shop-sit so I could do some shopping and get a last minute birthday gift. And while I was birthday gift shopping at an antique shop on the street, I saw these big ol' sparkly earrings* and I ended up sneaking them in with my other purchases. I figure if I make purchases on the street that I have a shop on, it's not really shopping, it's supporting.

The vintage digging I do at Revolving Closet is relationship building, not buying more dresses than my closet can contain. The candles I buy from my neighbour are a business expense, not an attempt to make my house smell like I've been baking cinnamon buns while, in fact, I was probably passed out on the couch. And the copious amount of fajitas from the two Mexican restaurants on Ottawa St. that I survived off of when we were setting up shop? I don't have to explain that because that was just ridiculous... awesome.

*There was one more pair similar to these at Once Again. They are blue and white, $35, for pierced ears and quite comfortable. Just thought I would share that, in case you were the kinda person who enjoys a little sparkle;)

Mmmmmm fajitas! And sparkly earrings. Loves it. I also love this outfit. A lot! But I cannot Pin it. I think it is a new thing with Flickr because I have not been able to Pin anything from blogs that upload their photos with Flickr. Do you have a Pin It button you could add or something?

I styled my maxi dress I wore this weekend very similar to this! Love it! :-)

Rebecca Jane said...

Love the sparkly earrings and the flowy plaid skirt = fantastic

Lindsay Newton said...

I wonder how my boss would feel if I took the rest of day off to go and make that remaining pair of earrings mine? Shopping emergency = legit excuse.

Floor length plaid skirt!

And don't forget "the lattes I order at Cannon bolster the business of an establishment that brings foot traffic to the neighborhood."

I do sneaky purchases all the time! Usually if I need to buy a bunch of things off Amazon, I'll also throw in a cute scarf just for me. Those earrings are lovely.

That's definitely supporting! And girl! this look is definitely editorial, you could see this on a magazine literally, love it!

Miranda- I know!!! The skirt was meant for the shop but it had holes I couldn't fix... So I just snagged it;)
Also, sadly I am a crappy Cannon supporter because I don't drink coffee or tea!!!
Lindsay- You may have to beat Lisa Hannam to get them;)
