Ok, I didn't blog on Monday because I had my ballet class after work. I took ballet classes in my youth and started again this summer. This fall I enrolled in adult ballet classes at Canada's National Ballet School. My friend likes to say that I was "accepted" to take classes at the ballet school. Technically that's true. They have accepted my money. :)

Monday, Nov 9

Dress: Meg
Necklace: Meg
Tights: Hue
Shoes: Fluevog Writes | Simone

Despite these shoes being wedges, I like them. Contrary to popular belief, I wouldn't wear any shoe just because it was designed by John Fluevog. Most of them, but not all of them.

It's a subtle wedge. You can barely tell!

OMG this photo is so terrible! I have forgotten what I'm doing! UGH!  But the dress is pretty.

Dress: Comrags
Shoes: Fluevog Tank | Linda

OMG and I just noticed there's paper towel on the floor.  I can't believe I'm posting this. Blame the dress.

I'm off work today for the Remembrance Day holiday so no outfit post.

I'm goingg to have to figure out a better place for these photos or get some help. I'm embarrassed!

Tattooed legs

During my blog hiatus I've been Instagraming up a storm. Maybe I'll start each of these posts with my daily shoe shot. 

Here's the whole shebang.

Dress: Meg (Bronze swing dress) (I hope I look much less bored than the model on the Meg website)
Leggings: Hue (Baroque leggings)
Shoes: Fluevog Bellvues | Ella Baker

Public service announcement for Torontonians - The Bay on Yonge St has a fabulous tights/legging selection right now on the 6th floor. Check it!

These leggings got a lot of double takes on my walk to work. I think people thought I was tattooed.

Love this bronze dress so much, though the neckline/zipper is a bit too high. I might need to have it slightly altered.

I bought this dress to attend the grand opening of the new Fluevog store at 686 West Queen West. Didn't get to talk to Mr. Fluevog himself though. He seemed a bit overwhelmed and I'm shy so I missed my opportunity (again) to tell him we share a birthday.

I've been trying to decide what to do with my hair - keep the same style, grow out my bangs, try different colour - but I think I'll stick with the tried and true for a while longer. This picture I took convinced me.

I'm wearing a slip, not just a bra so I'm not being dirty!

Blue Dress

Had this song in my head most of the day because of the dress I wore today.

Blue Dress - Depeche Mode from Violator

Dress: Eshakti (old)
Shoes: Fluevog Passage | Preet (on the sale!)

I'm wearing polka dotted tights but it's hard to see them since I have forgotten how to take photos and process them in the last year and a half.

Ok, there they are!

It was crazy warm again today in Toronto so I was able to walk to work in this light jacket that I found in a vintage shop on Monday. It's Max Studio and it made me feel very artsy or academic.

Fluevog and Comrags

Today is my last day off work post-surgery and I had a post-op appointment with my surgeon. An elderly man at my doctor's office was very impressed that I was so dressed up.

Had a lovely walk from my home to the hospital and then spent some time looking a pretty things at The Room at The Bay. Lots of pictures here on my Instagram feed.

On my way home I stopped at the new Fluevog store and they kindly let me use their new patio to take some photos.

It's November 4 and I have bare arms. And I'm apparently continuing my photo taking trend of looking for divine assistance from above.

Dress: Comrags
Shoes: Fluevog Presence | Impel 

The dress is actually brownish with flecks of green.

On the Fluevog patio there's a giant Connect 4 game. Fun!

This is a picture I took a few months ago, in the #vogvault. If you're in Toronto on West Queen West, pop in and play around.

Hello there

S'up? Just me, sitting on my front yard, contemplating the neighbourhood.

Taking a few days off work to recover from sinus surgery so I've been thinking about blogging again. Found my old camera, recharged it, and took some pictures. Found some old ones that were never blogged too.

Apparently I have no idea what I'm doing anymore with this.

Dress: Against Nudity from Coal Miner's Daughter sometime in 2014
Tights: Transparenze from Tryst Lingerie
Shoes: Fluevog Modvog | Carla 

I've gained a bit of weight, gotten a bit older, and bought a lot of clothes and shoes since I stopped blogging. Let's give this a try again. Older ladies need to band together against all the #basic black jeans with ripped out knees and black ankle booties (though I do love some of the ankle boots)!

Old stuff! No idea of the dates

Dress: Anthropologie
Tights: Fawn Boutique 
Shoes: Fluevog Daily Miracles | Stunner

Dress: Meg
Body Chain: Faire de la Mode (etsy)
Shoes: Fluevog Presence | Impel (out of stock)

Pleather dress: Meg
Shoes: Fluevog Listen Ups | Wanda
