I almost made it to work today with my curls intact. If you live in Southern Canada of the States you know what I'm talking about. The winds and rain were up to 90km/h today. I was walking to work very carefully and I almost made it to the door when the wind decided to turn my umbrella inside out, and the rain straightened my hair in one big gust. Glad I didn't have plans after work, I was only off to the gym :)

I hope you are all safe and didn't get caught up in any of the storms that went on across the Southern States.




Wearing: Dress: Calvin Klein; Shrug: Eclipse; Necklace: an Easter present that was designed and made for me ( I will post about it soon along with the earrings that match)

Our weekend travels took us to Perth and Merrickville last Sunday, which are very crafty areas here in Ontario. We visited boutiques, arts stores and a particularly interesting glass blowers shop where I bought the following necklace. I chatted with the shop keeper who makes the necklaces. It was interesting to hear that any piece of art in the shop that has been there for 4 months gets smashed and turned into necklaces. I wonder what this used to be :)



Happy Easter :)

I have been wanting to share these with you all for a while. they are my new babies! How i got them is a great story I think :) I went into the Felicity&Fritz boutique downtown on a Saturday just to browse and try on some shoes. They were having a 40% off boots sale, so that was my target, to look for a pair of boots. I have been looking for the perfect pair for 4 years now. I tried on the pair below and they were the last pair of that style in the store and in my size! I really liked them, but I didn't think I loved the $200 worth, so I left. I had been thinking about them my whole week at work, and on Friday after work I decided to walk back to the store not expecting to see the boots ever again. Well they were there still on the shelf. I tried them on a second time and did a little strut around the boutique. I talked to the owner about them and how I had been in a week earlier. I told her that I just couldn't do it. She hummed, and asked if she knowcked $50 off, would that make a difference? I said YES! and bought them for 50$ off the before tax price! My amazing distressed leather boots that are designed and made by a leather company call MARC in Germany are now in my closet :)




I love how the leather comes down over the heel of the boot. MARC $147.

I have been on death's door for the past week, and am only just starting to feel better. I am excited to be making my triumphant return to work after taking all of last week off. I wish I had a great story or did something neat on my week off, but sleeping for 16 hours a day felt sooo good. I'm hoping to post my new boots and a couple outfits this week for you all! I hope your health has faired better than mine!
