This is what I wore for a lovely October Saturday spent with the husband. We visited a few friends that had booths selling gorgeous art, books, jewellery and hair accessories at the Bazaar of the Bizarre. After I spent too much money there, we hit up a thrift shop on Queen Street West where I scored the most amazing vintage hat for $15 and ended having an early dinner with some good friends.

When I started working on the description of this outfit I realized that I physically purchased every piece in a brick and mortar store. That may not mean a lot to some people, but for me it’s an oddity. Usually my outfits consist of items that I have purchased online which is always a hit and miss. When it is a miss, I sometimes return the items, other times it just doesn’t make sense for me to do so with the cost of shipping from Canada and credit card charges. So now I have a pile of things that I need to either sell or give away.  I am hoping with the addition of Gussied Up, a newer plus size store in Toronto where I snagged this sweater, I will have the luxury of trying on purchases before I whip out my wallet. I think my bank account and closet will thank me.

      Aw! You know it’s funny, I hesitate spending more than $60 on any piece of clothing but will willingly eat ramen noodles for a month to save enough money for a pair of fluevogs 😉

      P.S. They are having a major sale right now!
