Skirts & Sparrow’s

Posted on

Today I was excited to wear my new top I got from my hubby. He got it at this lovely little shop in Calgary called Blame Betty. Its awesome!  Im not just talking about my top. The store is great. They have a great assortment of ladies Rockabilly clothing as well as a great new addition upstairs for menswear.  My hubby got an awesome Lucky 13 jacket. (I will post photos this week)
I paired my top with a new grey cardigan I got from my mom for Xmas as well as a cute skirt I got in Texas a few years ago.

Happy Thursday!

A Good Day For Chanel!

So today I woke up thinking it was Thursday and the weekend was within reach. I realized that I was mistaken as I was getting ready for work :(. Normally this would not bother me but today it kind of bummed me out. So on days like today I had to bring out my “HAPPY PANTS”. I know every woman has a pair and for me they are my Vintage Chanel nautical style pants. I absolutely love these pants. I found them this spring at the Maple Cottage Vintage sale. It was amazing. I noticed them as they were being returned after an unsuccessful fitting in the change room. I quickly asked if I could try them on and BAM!!!! Fit like a glove! And…..they were a very good price. I could not resist and now they are alllllll mine! These pants are also special because they were a collection for a store called CREEDS.

Creeds was the finest women’s specialty store in Canada specializing in furs, designer fashions and accessories, jewellery (Beni Sung), cosmetics (Borghese, Chanel, Clarins, Clinique, Estée Lauder, Lancôme), fragrances, and gifts (including fine chocolate, men’s ties, and Sable & Rosenfeld gourmet foods). The 38,000-square-foot (3,500 m2) store spanned two floors and featured boutiques for Yves Saint LaurentChanelChristian DiorEmanuel Ungaro, and Sonia Rykiel. The original location opened in 1916; the Manulife Centre location closed with the firm’s bankruptcy in 1990.  (source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manulife_Centre)

Fuschia Friday’s

I dont know about most people but for me I like to dress up on Fridays for two reasons. 1) I like to end the week with a bang and 2) you never know what might come up at then end of your work day.
So this morning I came along a slight problem when I realized all the nylons I own either have snags or holes :(……….well not all I guess. After going through my nylon drawer and rejecting every pair of nylons I had I noticed a small package at the bottom of my drawer. FUSCHIA NYLONS. I have been ignoring these lovely gems for close to 2 years mainly because I was afraid of the color but as of today I finally set them free. I can honestly say I think they are my new favorite things.
Moral of the story dont be afraid of color.
HAVE A COLORFUL FRIDAY EVERYONE!
