Happy Halloween weekend, mes amis! I have so much blogging to catch up on, and the story of my life right now is just work, work, and more work. It will get better. Last weekend, I went to a Fall fair held by an upper crust private school. It's known for the great silent auction items as well as second hand (or pre-loved) fashions. I picked up some bargains: a beautiful silver sequined clutch for $4, 2 scarves for $2 and an ugly-cute handbag for $2. I can't wait to show them. I also bid on a pair of Olympic hockey tickets for 2010 but I didn't get it.
And tomorrow night, I actually have Halloween plans to go out for the first time in probably 8 years! I kid you not. I'll be hanging out with the uber stylish Teresa from Senses and Style, fresh from her Europe trip. She even picked up a couple of gorg scarves from Italy for me (I will post, but sneak peek at her blog). I can't wait to go out in my costume...it's not quite as hot as the Nutcracker getup but it's not a bad last minute replacement. We'll be doing the haunted house thing, having some drinks and dinner, and then who knows?
For now, an outfit post from a couple of weeks ago. I got this plaid shirt from Vincent Park and I love how I can dress it up with a satin pencil skirt or make it preppy countryside with jeans and my beloved Ilse Jacobsen wellies.

In case you're wondering about the post title, it's a song by Band of Skulls, who I'm really into right now. They sound a bit like a richer, more complex White Stripes.
