Faux Bow

Welcome December!
The month of Christmas, of holidays, of parties and celebrations, the eve of a new year and many, many birthdays including my mom's, my sister's and my own!

Thank you to everyone that came out to the Canadian Urban Institute panel discussion on how to live a creative life. What a wonderful evening it was

There's a style that I've been wanting to try for a while - wearing one of Chris's bow ties. When Chris and I were in Lisbon in November, I found a bow tie made out of cork! How cool is that? It was a beautiful colour and great texture and I debated buying it, for myself, even if Chris wouldn't wear it. But then we went to Colombo, the biggest mall in Lisbon, and I found this simple cotton top with bow built right in. Done! And the cork bow tie became a distant memory, although now I am kind of kicking myself for not getting it anyway. It was pretty cool. Sigh. Maybe next time.

Here's my faux bow.

I also love these boots. I was admiring them for a while in Kensington Market but never bought them because they were a size too big. But then I just gave in, did my classic thing, bought something that is too big for me. I'm not ashamed to say I'm wearing two pairs of socks with these boots.

It looks like I have shoulder length hair in this picture. Hmmm...maybe I should get a haircut?
