January redux

Howdie! I just got home from a weekend with my parents, am catching up on some TV (Supernatural, Intelligence), and thought "hey! You have some photos that you should upload!"

Et Voila! These pictures are all from late January.

January 27

Shoes: Zara (last worn here)

I wore this to a training session on "Effective Communique Writing". Everyone else in the meeting was dressed rather boringly; however, all the men were wearing patterned socks. That seems to be the biggest outlet for men to be creative.

This dress is a total Prada rip off from a few seasons ago.

It has Roman soldiers on it but they have deformed cartoonish faces.

I like the bright colours though.

Dress: Desigual (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Truths | Marina (last worn here)

I've got my eye on you!

January 30

More red!

Necklace: Coal Miner's Daughter on Queen St.
Dress: Diane Von Furstenburg (last worn here)
Tights: Hue
Shoes: Fluevog Kitchy Kitchy Boom Boom | Liz

I had tried on these shoes in the turquoise colour but I resisted. I'm glad I did because tomato red is more my speed.

I blew out the colour of this picture so you could see the polka-dot tights.

Love the turquoise soles so hard.

I recently had my doctor change my meds because I was suffering from excessive sweating. So very excessive. I think it's been resolved now and maybe that's the reason I got my blog mojo back.

This has been a craptastic winter but today was gorgeous and sunny, if not exactly warm. Last week I went to see White Lies again with a lovely person I met on Twitter/Instagram who runs a website called Popshifter.  It was a great, great show.

This is one of my favourite White Lies songs.


  1. Oh, so good to see you! I was just thinking about you today as I perused the Fluevog selection. Love seeing "our" dress! That first dress is awesome - Roman soldiers??

  2. Fun dresses! And the red shoes are simply amazing!

  3. How do you know those Roman soldiers faces aren't actually accurate?

    Such dress delights! Between you and Melanie's Route 66 jacket, I really really really want to get something with a big graphic print. Maybe I can rip off your ripoff Prada.

    Good to see you again!

  4. Incredible shoes. Thank you for sharing ... blogging can be a drag...but YOU make a difference.

  5. fabulous dresses, and absolutely covetable red shoes, one of my favorite of your awesome collection!!, turquoise soles!!
    besos & glad to see you again!

  6. That dress is amazing! And omg the vogs even more so. I'm all drooly over the colors of them. Have you watched the making of that style of shoe?! I love that fluevog does those.

  7. Great outfits and shoes! I love the tomato Fluevogs. The colour is gorgeous! Thinking about acquiring a pair myself - maybe in tan which are still on sale. I have the sweating issue also,possibly from medication. I might the only person in this area that is dreading the warmer temperatures. Great to see you are back!

  8. I love the Desigual dress that you are wearing. I do not have a store here in North Carolina but order things on line. I am wondering what size (36-44) that you wear. You look similar to my size and although there is a size guide on Desigual website, I know that one seller's listed size is not always the size I expect. If that is way to personal, understand completely.

    1. I looked at the dress last night and it's a 42. I usually wear a US 8. I think the 42 is similar to a UK 12.
