Well, the meeting at work yesterday went a full two and a half hours (it never should have gone that long), but after the urging of one of my friends, I decided to head up to Milwaukee anyhow. I arrived just in time for things to wrap up at Brodach, then quickly changed so that I could be in the group photos and not look extremely out of place.
The outfit I wore was intentionally casual, so that it would be easy to quickly change in and out of. I put the whole thing together the night before the meet-up, and was initially intending on wearing Sleeping Beauty again, and then I remembered I had not worn this skirt yet.
In the end, I was glad I chose the lighter colored outfit, as about half of the group decided to wander up to a local street fair for an hour or so. When we left the street fair, we went over to a little park under a bridge with ground made of recycled tires, and swings made of tires and thick chains. The four of us that remained sat on a large bench swing talking for a while.
I wish I could have made it there for the Brunch, but I am still glad I went up. Also, I received a gift from a friend of mine while I was up there.
This is a Metamorphose necklace that she saw on Lace Market. She had recently heard me say that I did not really have any brand, and she knew I loved purple, so she bought it for me. I really love the necklace, now I just need to find or make something to wear it with. 😀 This, combined with my Innocent World Mook Violin bag are my only two items of brand. Hopefully once I catch up with my bills though, I can put money aside to buy a main piece from a brand.
