I ♥ Spoof

Spoof Sweater This is such a unique top that is actually NOT thrift, but a serious deal in the sale department. There is a store in Toronto, downtown on Queen Street West called Spoof. A little hole in the wall with two racks and nothing but sales off their already super cheap clothing. Now you don’t go in here looking for a super fine quality – the fabrics are thin and usually not about quality but rather price.

Having said that, this particular top is a knit off the shoulder sweater with lace strips in the front. I fell in love with the colour instantly, not to mention I’m a sucker for off the shoulder tops. It was $5. Pamela was very quickly sold on the idea. Also it reminds me of Toronto and my favourite memories of living there. Its a great accent piece to go with my antique brass necklace, bracelet and earring set I made with beads from my last bead store trip. Not often to do I keep jewellery for myself but these I made specifically for me. Love!

And no, as a final note, the rolled cuff was not a fashion forward thought but rather the fact that these pants are too long.

The Wild Green Necklace

Lime Necklace It’s finally Friday and once again not trying to do anything too crazy with my outfit… except for wanting to wear this awesome lime green necklace for the first time! I picked it up a couple months ago from The Revolving Door along with a few others of equal vibrancy! Its made of all tiny (not to mention irritating) seed beads! And no, I definitely did not make this piece – I don’t have the tolerance for that!

I wanted to wear something rich in colour, potentially blue. I have a couple royal blue dresses that I often wear as tops, as well as this sheer bright blue irregular one I got for $5 at Spoof the last time I was downtown Toronto. The dresses were a failure, one is too big (I have since thrown it in the donate pile) and the other I need more time to sort out the styling of. So I elected to go with the tried and true: sheer blue with basic black tights, cardigan and tank top underneath paired with a thin black sparkle belt.
