A couple of weeks ago I picked up my husband from his long day at work at the GO station (commuter train) and he came out with a large bag from The Bay (an iconic Canadian department store that has since been bought by Lord and Taylor).
I was surprised to see he'd bought something there since it's not his regular place to shop. He prefers Ted Baker, Harry Rosen or Brooks Brothers.
When I asked him what he'd bought he said shoes.
Now if you knew my husband you would understand that this could very possibly be true. He is a shoe hoarder. As you can see this is just a small glimpse of his vast collection...
I asked him if he got them on sale and he said, "No. The salesperson says these would never go on sale."
He wanted them and that was that.
Then I gave him some flack saying he should only buy retail if it is on sale and buying at full price is for suckers. He quickly put me in my place by saying he could spend money on whatever he felt like. At which point I knew enough to keep my trap shut. If he wanted new shoes, heck who am I to say no? After all I buy new shoes... ahem...cough, cough...rather regularly.
So when we got home he brought the bag into the kitchen to show me his amazing new shoes that he just had to have to add to his collection.
He let me open the box.
Seemed to me I recognized that brand...
Shock and awe.
Before you go thinking my husband has suddenly started wearing ladie's shoes these are my size...7 and not his.
I had eyed these babies up the week before in a magazine pointing them out to my husband. That, and a scarf...which I also received : )
It has a map of the world on it. Cool right?
It is actually pretty enough to hang on a wall in my office.
But I'll be wearing it.
Not hanging it.
Let's get our priorities straight here people.
And now I present to you my first outfit with the "surprise!" radiant orchid strappy sandals.
That'd be because yesterday it was -3 here with snow.
This is what it looked like downtown yesterday...
Hence why I'm back to taking indoor photos and dressed for late December instead of Mid April.
Someone needs to reset the alarm for Spring because clearly she has overslept.
Pug photo bomb!
The day before it was 25 and sunny. This weather is bipolar.
Blazer - Mod Cloth, Boots - Tommy Hilfiger, Bag - TJ Maxx, Jeans - Mavis, Black shirt - H&M, Bird Brooch - Aldo
I got out to visit my girlfriend despite the weather. We managed to squeeze in a quickie consignment shopping spree, lunch and a movie. Oh, and I should mention that she ran 5 km yesterday morning in the snowstorm before I got there. I need to mention this because she bragged about it
I, obviously did not run. I still haven't been feeling 100% after my mould poisoning so it has been a little more difficult to get back into my exercise.
Wait till you see the new pieces I found at the consignment stores!
The movie we saw was The Grand Budapest Hotel. A quirky dark humoured little film crammed full of wonderful actors.
Catch Tilda Swinton...she is barely recognizable and brilliant!
I'm happy to report we do not have snow in the forecast for today.
I'm hopeful that we will not be hunting for Easter Eggs in snowbanks.
