(No, I didn't eat the 'r'... see the cupcake on the top right with the flower? It didn't last long after this picture and it was delicious... )
I took my bestie 'M' with me to the party. She has an eight month old daughter at home so I don't see her as often as I used to.... Is it bad that I was so glad to have her all to myself? Well, I had to fight for her attention with a rack of clothing but I can expect that... And guess who bought the most? That's right.... 'M', who's shopping habits have been curbed by the arrival of her baby, went all out and bought twice as much as me. And I was her proud enabler, encouraging every purchase...
'M' and I have been best friends since I was in Gr. 12 and she was in Gr.11. I broke highschool social code for her by forming a relationship with an individual from outside my grade level. As punishment they threw slushies at me...oh wait, wrong life. Actually it was good being her best friend, she worked at Gap for a while and life couldn't have been sweeter... but it was. Not only did I get to borrow all her fancy Gap clothes (my favourite 'designer' clothing in highschool, though I couldn't afford it), I also finally had a friend who was taller (! I'm 5'11!) than me.
Jacket? French Connection, Filene's Basement
Tank? ?, Winners
Cute peeps toes that can't be seen? Primark
'M' was totally a good sport and posed for the blog. She said she felt awkward posing and didn't know what to do. I should have told her to imagine that she was Sasha Fierce... Regardless, she looks beautiful and I'm going to stalk her until I have an opportunity to steal that colourful necklace.
Bustier? Sonia Rykiel for h&m
Tee? Joe Fresh
Jacket? French Connection, Winners
Boots? Modern Vintage, Winners
Bangles? Thrifted and Primark
Awesome necklace? Just purchased from The Last Hurrah, I wore it immediately...
And wow... I'm posing like I'm soo bored with it all. Not true. The bustier just gave me some attitude. This was one of the only times that Matt has vocalized his confusion over my choice of wear. He didn't understand the whole bustier as outerwear thing... I am by no means Miss Modesty 2010 (though 1998 was a good year for me) but I do like to keep it clean. I tried to balance out the sexiness of the lacey top by wearing a tee and some heavy duty cargos. Thank-you cotton! And thank-you The Last Hurrah and 'M' for a lovely night!
