'A Plague on [All Our] Houses'


As soon as I saw these wool slacks at JCrew in this yummy fuchsia color, I knew I had to have them! They are just so bright and fun! Perfect for Fall; perfect for grey Winter days! Dying for them in this, this and this color!

Paired them with my favorite Zara skimmers and this checked shirt that Victoria of Thrift Juice was nice enough to send me!  I met her back in the summer and on the aside mentioned how hard it was to find a black check shirt and back in Toronto a couple of weeks later, I got the tweet that she had found said shirt! Thanks for looking out, Vic!!

Um, of course now I'm seeing the damn shirt everywhere but isn't that always the case?








Couldn't end the month of October without wearing something pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Any form of cancer (which I consider our modern day plague) is absolutely devastating and I have lost a few loved ones to this horrible disease, most recently my beloved cat, Samantha, of 15 years.

Until there's a cure...
What I'm Wearing:
Pants: JCrew
           Orig. Price: $118.00
            Paid: $90.00
Shirt: Joe Fresh (similar one here)
Vest: JCrew
Necklaces: Lord & Taylor, Forever 21
Bracelets: Jade Bangle (Hong Kong), JCrew, Name Cuff (Bali)
Rings: YSL
