Black and Red

Did you know that Marilou gave me a scarf and gloves specifically so I wouldn't be cold in Ottawa?? How HOSTESS- Y is THAT?  I Love them!! AND I used them last night when I went for a little walk outside in the snow in my heels (no I didn't bring proper snow footwear!!).  Ottawa has alot of history (became the capital of Canada in 1857) and the parliament building and all the other historical sites are interesting to visit. The post office in particular was built in 1939 and the lions on all the architecture were meant to guard the entrance of the parliament building. Very regal if you ask me.  Thats what I feel like wearing my new scarf and little glovies!!!  THANKS ML you rock!!

Thanks for all the comments yesterday on that stoopid blue sweater I was wearing. I took it back straight away. Is good to get rid of those frumpy purchases that don't do any justice!!  And I kindof knew when I bought it that it wasn't within my "I know what suits me" guidelines, but pushed the envelope and bought it anyway.  Good reminder that INTUITION never lies!!!

  13. Hotel room curtain backdrop. Nice! Better than the metal cabinet that serves as mine sometimes. Awesome pics! Love the angles! Now I've gotta check out the blue sweater I missed.

  17. I love the sassy pose with the curtain. You look great! And yay for figuring out the sweater wasn't "you" and returning it. I've wasted so much money on "good bargains". :)
