I wore said outfit to the extremely aesthetically-appealing fireworks that occurred a couple of days ago. It was China's turn in the Celebration of Lights happening down in Vancouver, and I kid you not, the whole world was there. Every inch of the beach covered with ~400,000 people, food stalls assisting in producing a tantalizing aroma, the overcast clouds threatening us with a sudden downpour of rain (which did occur!), the sunshine peeking in every now and then (mockingly so), and then, the climax of the night: explosions of glittery goodness in the sky at promptly 10 pm.

outfit commentary: This skirt was LUST AT FIRST SIGHT. I got to experience L.A.'s vintage-ness at Jet Rag's $1 vintage sale. What a fan-fawking-tastic find this was! The graphics, the colours, the prints--it's something I would doodle (on my chemistry homework, etc.)! (The label says Diane Fries--who I just googled: http://www.dianefreis.com/base/designer.htm So, whoop! Designer vintage!) Right away, I envisioned 'em with my faux-leather tights (which got me the nickname 'foxy grandma' at school, heehee), faux-leather tights that most have seemed to retire--but not me, OH NO. I'll wear these babies till they're shreds. I then needed something solid on top, ergo I added the shirt and vest. A little accessorizing and bang!--perfect for fireworks. (Okay, fine, I'll be freakishly honest--I didn't wear the red wedges (we did a lot of walking). Instead, I wore my trusty 'ol plastic, green gladiators: http://www.fashism.com/look/view/1043.)
