Daily Dose: Rust and Feathers

I've got a giant backlog of outfits, which I'm thankful for, because for the past few days, I've been meaning to snap some photos of what I've been wearing, but always end up thinking, 'Eh, I'll do it tomorrow'.  TOMORROW NEVER COMES.



Lately, I've noticed that I tend to purchase most of my items from the same few stores, but that this group of stores will change every once in a while.  Lately I've been purchasing a bunch of things from the Canadian retailer Smart Set.  They have killer end-of-season sales, and I recently picked up a bunch of studded camisoles that I love for five bucks each.  The rust-coloured camisole that I'm wearing above has lace panelling down both sides, which really adds a needed punch to a basic layering piece.  I bought it along with some other coloured siblings back when Smart Set was having its spring/summer end-of-season sale.  I think they were even cheaper, coming in at about $4 each.

Because of all this camisole buying I was doing, Smart Set decided to grace me with a $10 off card which had no minimum purchase.  I could not believe it.  I promptly went and purchased this feather necklace which cost me $4.  (Do you see a theme here?)

I have to tell you about this non-descript black boyfriend cardigan I'm wearing too.  It's not particularly fashionable, but I have worn the thing to death, and it's so pilly it really needs to be thrown away.  But I can't make myself get rid of it!  Have you ever had an item like that?


Rust camisole - size S - Smart Set - ~$4
Feather necklace - one size - Smart Set - $4 with 'gift card'
Skirt - size XS - Dynamite - ?
Cardigan - size XS - Urban Behaviour - $25
Plush-lined tights - size S/M - Ricki's - $16.50
Pumps - size 7 - Nine West - ~$50
