Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to spend some time with a couple of my favourite bloggers, Judith from Style Crone and Shelley from Forest City Fashionista.
Judith was in town from Denver with her boyfriend and Shelley had taken the bus into the city from London Ontario for the day.
We went to the Distillery District in downtown Toronto which was the perfect spot to check out some fine hats…we all love hats.
Judith was visiting most of the Toronto milliners during her visit and these photos were taken at the Saucy Milliner.
Judith looks fantastic no matter what hat she is wearing.
Her spirit and energy are forever young. What a great person to be around!
Shelley makes this hat look seriously bad ass.
Shelley is easy to spend time with.
Her creative style doesn’t go unnoticed. Many conversations with strangers begin because of her personal fashion statement.
What a fun way to introduce yourself!
This was one of my favourites from the shop…a leopard fedora!
I wanted to buy it but it was well out of my budget. I always manage to find the most expensive piece in the shop it seems.
Did you spot the major faux pas in the above photo? It’s pretty obvious.
Judith had to leave the city early to meet up with her man so Shelley and I had the rest of the afternoon and part of it was spent drooling over the shoes at Fluevog and then playing around in their upside down room.
Shelley was also recognized by one of the salespeople at Fluevog who is an avid fan of her IG account. I told you she makes waves wherever she goes!
You may remember the vintage dress I’m wearing here…it is the famous “painted” dress.
See how much brighter it was before I washed it?
I did my best.
Shelley and I also found some time for thrifting.
Oh yes my friends, if there is a thrift store nearby I will be there checking it out.
Especially since that day it was 50% off.
Other bloggers are enablers when it comes to shopping. If they can’t buy it they want you to.
That is what happened with this sequinned jacket. I spotted it first and then told myself to pass it by. The bomber jacket style sometimes isn’t great for my curvy figure and I thought I wouldn’t get enough use out of it so I talked myself out of it.
Shelley spotted it, showed it to me and pointed out just how great it was. I reconsidered my initial snap judgement.
I’ve wanted a Micheal Jackson sequinned jacket for a while now and this was my opportunity to snatch one up for less than $10.
I tried it on in the thrift store near a mirror. Two people waiting at the cash told me it looked great.
Now I had to buy it.
Vanity thy name is…
Here is my ever helpful four legged assistant.
She likes me to hold her bone while she chews it.
This is just how glamorous my life is.
Obviously a sequinned black bomber jacket is the ideal outfit for this task.
Thanks for helping me find the perfect jacket for holding my pug’s bone Shelley!
I loved my day out with these fabulous women.
Having the opportunity to discover and meet up with dynamic, creative, interesting, inspiring, joyfully visible women is the main reason I continue to blog.
