Petite Fashion Challenge #21: The Fascinator

Considering how I’m always about being “proper” and “lady-like,” I’m actually not much of a headpiece kind of girl.  Therefore, this Petite Fashion Challenge, hosted by KTR Style, was definitely a challenge for me.  I do have a few pieces, purchased at shows and other events, but I just never really…wore them.  For this month’s […]

A Typical Sunday: Brunch at a Local Breakfast Joint

Had brunch with my husband at a neighbourhood breakfast place, Maggie’s (they’re on Twitter, but they don’t post frequently) on Sunday morning before heading to the supermarket to buy groceries for the next few days.  We’re regulars at the comfort food breakfast-and-lunch joint, frequenting it a couple of times a month (not exactly the best […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Swirl Dress

Sorry for taking so long to post this! I’ve been crazy-busy wrapping up the DelectablyChic! Social (which was pretty  good, by the way) and just didn’t have time to take pictures.  The dress is so light weight and summer-ready and I’ve worn it out a couple of times already, including to a Father’s Day dinner […]

Cynthia’s Banana Republic Mad Men Collection Loot!

I walked into the Yorkdale store expecting disappointment, that it was going to be like last time, where there were NO PETITES AVAILABLE.  Turned out I was wrong.  Sort of.  As noted in the earlier post, there were only three dresses – two dresses inspired by Joan and one by Betty – on the racks. … [Continue Reading]

Christian Louboutin and Shoe Vanity Sizing

Yeah, I know. I neglected to mention that I’m finally a proud owner of Christian Louboutins!  The Prorata 90 mm pumps were purchased from a Christian Louboutin boutique in Hong Kong at the oh-so-hard-to-find size 34 (the similar-looking New Simple Pump starts at 35). Yes, size 34. Not 34.5 or size 35.  I don’t think […]
