Happy Accident


Here's two outfits that I wore last month.  The first is a dress that I bought on eShakti.com which has recently decided to stop shipping to Canada (again). *sigh*

June 18


Dress: eShakti
Shoes: Fluevog Expectation | Motive (now on sale!)

As someone who isn't usually drawn to florals I seem to have bought a lot of shoes and clothes with flowery motifs. Like the booties I bought for my birthday.



This picture shows that the bottom of the dress is embroidered with a scalloped pattern.


And my button and necklace were of a similar theme. Apropos for moi?













June 19

This is the "happy accident" to which I'm referring in the subject.



I bought this dress at Meg not knowing that I would match some older Fluevogs that I have owned for about 5 years.

Dress: Megshops "babydoll" dress
Shoes: Fluevog Blind Faith Mid | Drew (last worn here)

My penultimate boss was all "oh Megan, your shoes match your dress perfectly" and she wouldn't believe me when I told her that it was just a happy coincidence!

I love you, Plaid Pocket


Ok, I may have bought this dress because of the pocket on the front. I wish it also had side pockets but this will do.



Dress: Kate Spade Saturday from MyHabit.com
Necklace: Coal Miner's Daughter
Tights: from the Blue Banana in Kensington Market
Shoes: Miss L Fire (last worn here)

I bought these leggings last weekend when I was wandering around in Kensington Market with the Forest City Fashionista. She's so cool. I'm glad I got to spend some time catching up with her while she was in the big city.

I seem to be addicted to leggings right now.


When I bought these shoes I thought they'd only work with a small number of outfits but they are proving to be quite versatile. Miss L Fire may be my second favourite brand of shoes!

I'm off to visit family for the weekend and Father's Day. I can't believe June is already half over.

400!

This is my 400th post. I waited until I had a few cute outfits to post rather than having my 400th post being me wearing jeans and a tunic/dress.

May 30


Dress: Vera Wang/Simply Vera (last worn here)
Jeans: All Saints (last worn here)
Shoes: Tn_29 (last worn here)

See - kinda boring. Though this dress will forever be known as my Duran Duran dress.


This was also the day before I got my hair done at a new place.
































June 2



Dress: Fresh Collective (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Prepare | Guides (last worn here)

This is a better dress for post 400.


Crazy cat lady dress!

You can't really tell here but my hair is much redder and the colour isn't fading like it has from the other place I've been going. I had to go quite far afield to get there but it was the salon experience I was looking for.

  

























June 5



Cardigan: H&M
Dress: Modcloth (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Pin-ups | Miss April (last worn here)

This is my drinking dress! 



Cocktails! WHooo!

Happy weekend everyone.

The past is just a bridge that we burnt down behind us when we left this town

The title of this post is from a great song by a Toronto band, Wildlife. It kinda describes how I feel about my recent past.


This band opened for White Lies when I saw them in February and I hope to see them again soon. Their drummer is the most enthusiastic musician I've ever seen. My friend who went to the concert with me, right a the beginning of their set said "That guy better pace himself! He'll be exhausted by the second song."  Fortunately he wasn't.

Anywhoodle, on to the outfit post.

This might even be a rerun.


Dress: eShakti (last worn here)
Necklace: from Coal Miner's Daughter (last worn here)
Shoes: Miss L Fire (last worn here)

Back to leggings again today since it's a bit cool again today after two days in the high 20s.



Not sure why I'm bothering to post this since it's just a black line. Maybe to show off my convertible bra from Victoria's Secret?































After work today I had an appointment for a CT scan of my head at the hospital near the Eaton Centre so I went to the mall to kill time. I think a part of my soul died. What a lot of wank they sell there. Ugh!


Might be headed for my third sinus surgery. I'll discuss it with my ENT next month. Double UGH.

Bohemian like you

I bought a blouse at a pop-up shop on Queen Street on Sunday so of course I had to wear it on Monday.


Blouse: Fitzroy Boutique pop-up shop
Skirt: Trapper Jane (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Writes | Simone (last worn here though I'm sure I've worn them since last January)

First of all, I don't wear separates very often so wearing a skirt and blouse is different for me. Secondly, this is quite flowery, also not a typical choice for me.

That being said, I recently bought those flowery boots and flats from Fluevog. Maybe my style is evolving? Am I becoming girly in my early-mid-40s?


It's also quite sheer and flowy (if that's a word).

And a HI to the funky woman who stopped me at Queen and Spadina to tell me she likes my blog. *waves*

Red and Gold

These photos are from May 22. I tried to take the photos in my usual space in the kitchen but every time I tried to take them someone was in there! WTF? 

So these were taken in Boardroom A.


Dress: Desigual (last worn here)
Shoes: Noa Noa (last worn here)

I haven't worn these shoes in 2 years? What is wrong with me?  I know I'm a fan of Fluevog but I own a lot of nice shoes of other brands which I should wear more often. I do love the t-straps.


The one thing I dislike about this dress is the big DESIGUAL logo on the back but I do love the patterns on the skirt.

Dots and Skulls

Yesterday was a holiday in Canada, Victoria Day. Thank you Queen Victoria for giving me a day off work!

On the long weekend I went to a craft show in the Distillery District and I bought this little pinafore.


Dress: Emily Ryan (last worn here)
Scarf: Alexander McQueen (last worn here)
Pinafore: Atelier du Presbytère from Montreal
Tights: Hue (last worn here)
Shoes: Fluevog Prepares | Guide (last worn here)

I actually wore these shoes YESTERDAY too. What's wrong with me??


I want one of these pinafores for every day of the week!

What I like it is that it will be a good layering piece during the summer...


and it has this pocket which is great for my security pass and kleenex and the like.

and it has this little secret...



An Exclamation Point on the underside of the pocket!

(and I'm wearing my mouse ring which I recently reacquired because apparently I left it behind in Halifax.)
