Everybody EveryWear: Green


This is my submission for the Everybody EveryWear challenge, and this month the theme is one of my favourite colours: Green! I picked up this green peacoat several years ago at Forever 21 in Detroit, when I was living in Windsor, Ontario.


I bought a lot of colourful outer wear when I was in Windsor, because I was TV reporting, and needed a rotation of "looks" for being on air. Although it's pretty unfair, some people paid more attention to what we wore than the content of our stories. I'll give you an example. But first, I should explain to my non-Canadian friends that on Remembrance Day, many Canadians wear red poppy pins on their lapels or jackets as a sign of respect to those who fought in wars, and for all veterans. Well, the year I was in Windsor, one of my colleagues wore her red poppy pin on the right side of her jacket, which isn't where you're supposed to wear it. It was an honest mistake, and obviously no disrespect was intended but, the amount of angry phone calls and emails we got about this 'offense' to the veterans was unbelievable.  Not a single comment on her story, but tons of response about the faux pas. 

By the way, thank you so much all of you who commented on the Cap Toe Shoes DIY, it seems like some of you might even give this a try! Hooray! If you missed it, you can see it here.

  21. It's a bit expected that people are more critical on the fashion trends even on TV shows. It's something all people who appear on tv should be aware and careful of. Nevertheless, you've done a fantastic job at coming up with a great get up for it. The green pea coat really suits you.
