black with flecks of gold

Thursday night was Je Suis Prest's fashion show and holiday party hosted at the sophisticated Canterbury Lounge. Of course you can count on me to take pictures of all 20 dresses to be featured an upcoming post. So, don't worry if you weren't able to make it or wasn't able to get a ticket before they sold out, I'll redeliver the experience to you as best as I can in blog post form!

Before I headed out to a baby shower for a close friend last evening, I popped in to check out the newly opened Black Dog Boutique, which you will find on Germain beside the new Relish gourmet burger joint (which I still have yet to try out). This boutique is a charming space with beautiful decor and a lovely clothing selection of quality items. I have pictures of the shop and plan to share them in an upcoming blog post!

This outfit marks being 1/3 through the 30 for 30 challenge! I wore this ensemble to the Viva La Diva event Wednesday evening at Market Square. (Blog post for this event is mid production!)

The Outfit

Black long-sleeve tee- H&M (Toronto, Sept '10)
Skinny jeans- Nissi- Pseudio (SJ, April '10)
Booties- Aldo (Toronto, Sept '10)
Gold & black necklace- Banana Republic (Freeport, Nov '10)
Long gold necklace- Banana Republic (Freeport, Nov '10)
Gold bracelet- American Eagle necklace (SJ, Fall '08)
Gold headband- Splurge (Halifax, Fall '09) 
Faux fur coat- Joe Fresh Style (SJ, Oct '10)

This outfit includes the most basic of my 30 for 30 pieces. I added instant glam to the outfit by layering gold necklaces and then throwing on my faux fur coat. It's amazing how far a little accessorizing can take you.

Those necklaces are wonderful for that outfit. I'm also impressed with the vest - I could never pull it off.
