So, the truth is this is a scheduled post of an outfit I wore a few days ago, but my tiered, tomato-red dress seemed celebration-worthy. I found it in the vintage section of my local thrift store and was intrigued about its history - maybe B's archaeology background is rubbing off on me. I googled the brand, which led me to learn that Bretton's was a high-end department store in Canada between 1985 and 1996. It fit my criteria for being comfortable, well-made and unique. I can't wait to wear it right into fall.
On the agenda for today is a work training course that's rumoured to end early. I'm hoping to follow that up with a nice workout and then my family, B and I are going out for Vietnamese for dinner. This weekend some of my closest friends are in town so I can't wait to see them :) I'm a very low-key birthday kind of gal so I couldn't ask for a better couple of days.
How's that for a shadow?!
I can't take any photos into the sun without my eyes watering like crazy. I'm dying here.
