Most weekends, I'll wear jeans, a top and a scarf; but, this weekend, a bunch of us were going for a surprise birthday lunch for a co-worker who has been off work due to illness. So needless to say, I didn't want to look like a slob. It being Saturday, I still wore jeans of course.
We went to Kingsway Sushi which is part of the Top Gun restaurant group. As expected for a large group and all-you-can-eat, many of the tasty items which we ordered never arrived. I think what may have happened is that since we had 2 tables, the food went to the other table. I distinctly heard people at the other table say "What is this? ..."

But, conversation was flowing and we had a good mix of family and friends at our table. There was lots of yummy stuff which I had never tried before like teriyaki chicken roll, something crunchy and yummy inside sushi rice and wrapped with salmon, oyster motoyaki (oyster baked in a sinfully delicious, very rich egglike sauce), and all sorts of cooked and uncooked foods.
We topped it all off with mango pudding and birthday cake. These photos were taken after, thus the stuffed look.
So back to my outfit of $50. It's true, retail prices, everything bought on sale.
Today, I wore:
shortie jacket ... jessica ... $8 at sears
necktie ... ? ... $1 at dollar store
collared tee ... ? ... $3 at a liquidators
ruffle tanks ... hamilton ... $9 at winners
jeans ... kenneth cole ... $14 at costco
shoes ... reflexan laufkomfort ... $14 at army & navy
Here's a closeup of the shoes:
I really like the colour - goes great with jeans. And they are a clog, slip-on style which I love for pants.
