Hello to people who might be linking here from Ephemera! Thanks to Shelia for saying such nice things about me and for giving me a Major Award. I'm chuffed beyond belief to be so honoured - as you can see, I'm in good company. It's nice to have a "twin" on the other side of the country who has such great style and a fun blog. *wonder twin powers - ACTIVATE*
I also want to say thanks to Megan Mae for the Liebster Blog award on December 21. I had every intention of reciprocating but shortly after that I flew home to Ontario to visit with family. I really appreciated being recognized as such a new blogger. Thanks Megan!
I went back to work today after a 3 day weekend, most of which was spent in bed recovering from some self-inflicted pain. My only New Year's resolution is to not drink that much ever again. You just don't bounce back at 40 like you might have at 20. GRONK!
To celebrate going back to work I put together something that totally didn't work. This
is an example of how to make you're hips look huge without even trying.
I won't be pairing these pants and top together again.
Top: From a store in Guelph. Not sure of brand.
Necklace: Pretty Chic
Pants: All Saints
Shoes: Dolce and Gabbana Thrifted from Meow
I bought these pants quite a few months ago but had to have them significantly altered to fit without looking like I was wearing my father's pants. I love them though, even if they look awful here.
At least I got to wear these lovelies. I mentioned them on the blog on December 26 but wore them for the first time today.
As a child of the 1980s, I've worn a lot of pointy toed shoes in my time. If bugs need squishing in the corner of a room, I'm your girl, though I wouldn't want to get bug guts on these babies.
Last year I bought some vintage Fluevog tapestry boots off of eBay which also have very pointy toes. Look for them sometime in the near future.
