So Monday was a little exciting here in the big city. After work I started walking home and ended up ducking into a building to escape a rather dramatic rain storm. Turns out Toronto received 90mm of rain in 2 hours. The average rainfall for the month of July is usually 75mm. Unfortunately I left the windows of my apartment open and had a wee bit of water to deal with when I got home. Then I lost power for about 24 hours and wasn't able to deal with the water in my carpet. Today I got home and my apartment smells like a swamp.
The worst part was almost all of my shoes were stored under my bed in fabric storage cases. Many were soaked and I have yet to determine the full extent of the damage. Hopefully they will be ok.
Here's what I wore on Monday before the drenching.
Dress: Lilikoi from Chartreuse Style (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Swordfish | Postmodern Slushy (apparently sold out!)
I bought these shoes my second day living in Toronto and this is the second time I've worn them. The first time was out for drinks with a former coworker from Halifax.
I'm glad I got them when I did since they aren't on the Fluevog website anymore.
They're pretty comfortable though they did rub a bit on my right ankle. I just slapped a bandaid on and carried on with my day.
Luckily I wasn't wearing these during the extreme deluge.
I didn't take any pictures on Tuesday or Wednesday since I was looking less than camera ready.
T-shirt: Club Monaco (last worn here)
Skirt: Twig and Hottie in Vancouver (last worn here)
These shoes were thrown in the garbage when I got home. I'd only worn them about 4 times and a lot of the glittery bits from them had fallen off. Plus they made my feet sweat terribly. Life's too short to wear crappy shoes.
I love this skirt but it wrinkles easily. It has a nice drape though.
A new pair of shoes was waiting for me when I got home so throwing these ones out wasn't such a hardship.
Tomorrow is Friday! I'm in love!
