Fashion on Friday – May 31, 2013

It has been so long since I’ve done a fashion post. So I have several outfits to share. Hang on to your hats – lots of images!

This is what happens when your husband takes your pictures for you, but he’d rather be playing with his boys.

OK – I have more outfit photos, but I’ll save them for later. We’re heading into warm weather and that’s when I start to dress more boringly. I’ll try not to live in the same outfit everyday for the next couple of months.

I love the stories that clothes can tell. The memories that they can evoke.

Take this dress. Love it, super comfy, bright, fun. It also has a bit missing where a goat had a nibble when we went to a petting “zoo” at the pumpkin patch with our kids and some friends.

And the boots. These are my Moon Boots. When I was growing up, I wanted a pair of Moon Boots so bad, but we couldn’t afford them. It wasn’t the end of the world and I got over it, but when this pair of shiny pink Moon Boots crossed my path on clearance many years ago, I knew it was destiny!

And yes, that is a fabulous 80s pin featuring a rainbow, a lightning bolt and a dolphin. Wonderful!

The shirt I’m wearing in the next outfit is a custom-made shirt from eShakti. It’s an online store where you put in your measurements and they will custom make clothes for you. I found that the two things that I have had from them so far are sized a little big so when I get something else, I will drop my measurements by an inch. Anyway, I love the shirt, I will have to figure out a way to alter it so that it fits a bit better. The quality is great.

Tights with shorts is one of my very favourite looks.

This ring is one that I made by upcycling vintage cluster earrings.

I love this dress! The style, the bird print. I don’t have many things in navy blue, so I wasn’t sure what to wear on my feet, but I think my grey boots work really well.

This last dress is the other thing that I had made by eShakti. They were having a good sale and I had a discount code as well. It is amazingly comfortable and of course, I love the owl print!
