Garters and RawrManifesto

This is going to be another one of those photo filled posts. Sadia of Rawr Manifesto and I got together for a much needed meetup and seeing as she’s also a fashion blogger we left with tons of photos from our far too short date night. Being a fashion blogger definitely has its perks but there isn’t anything quite as rewarding as meeting fellow like-minded individuals who then become great friends. I’ve only known Sadia for a short while but we’ve been pretty good friends since our first encounter way back in June. 
Do you ever dream up the perfect outfit and hope for the day you can successfully pull it together? I certainly have and thankfully I finally had all of the pieces to complete the ensemble. Thankfully I had the perfect occasion to wear it to and one of my favourite people to wear it for.  
I posted awhile back that I had been eying a cheetah print pencil skirt from Domino Dollhouse. I was lucky enough to find it for a bit cheaper on Chic Star so I went with them. It felt like it took forever for it to finally get here but the day it arrived I felt like a kid on Christmas morning (or what I’d assume it feels like seeing as I don’t celebrate Christmas). The colours are a bit lighter than I had expected and the fabric isn’t what I had imagined at all. My only regret is not purchasing a size down because it is a bit too large for my liking. There isn’t any stretch to this skirt at all but its definitely cut just a bit big and well, I like my pencil skirts to fit snug. Last week I stumbled on this biker vest and I just knew I had to have it. How often do you come across such a well made and basically perfect item for $34.00? Throw those two pieces together and you have the start of something good.
I dressed a bit too warm for the weather so I didn’t get to enjoy my vest for the full day but it was surprisingly comfortable and light weight. If you’re in the market for a vest similar to this one I suggest checking out Forever 21. 
We spent the day shopping, eating, talking and just generally being hot fatties in one of the last hot days of the month. Sadia introduced me to Marble Slab Creamery and I introduced her to Toko restaurant.  It was hard to accept that our day was going to wrap up but I had a really good time just hanging out. It was the perfect way to put an end to September.
