Back in the TV news days I wore a lot of suits. Now, when one calls my name from the back of the closet, I like avoid looking too lawyered up. Mixing stripes and florals helped inject some whimsy into today’s fifty shades of grey. Blazer, Le Chateau. Sweater, BCBG Max Azria. Slacks, Veronique Branquinho. xx
Why am I smiling beside this abandoned church? Did Jesus just float by in a grilled cheese sandwich? More importantly, what am I wearing?
Earrings by Paloma Picasso. Same black coat from Paris. No idea on the hat, and scarf by my mom! I have a thousand of these scarves. Even if you’re deprived of a talented and knit-prolific mother, my point is this: you can wear the same jacket two days in a row, but a different color accent keeps it looking fresh… If you can handle fashion pointers from someone who forgets to put on lipstick before a photo. Maybe it came off while I ate the grilled cheese.
Making a style statement in Victoria Park, a neighborhood known for the historic brick buildings you see behind me. I was going to choose another picture taken ten seconds later, but decided to Keep It Real. What’s a picture of the streets of Calgary if it doesn’t include that white pickup that just rumbled by? Because while it might not always be white, there is always a pickup in the vicinity in Cowtown.
Sunglasses by Gucci. Coat from some place on the Champs-Elysées I can’t remember. Boots by Prada. Scarf with fox fur tails by my mom, with inspiration from Dolce & Gabbana, as seen on the left. Grazie mille Mom!
Is it cool to look like a sassy cabbie driver? That’s how someone described me today. I took it as a compliment, because —
- Sassy cabbies make me think of New York and I♥NY
- It’s definitely cool to wear vivid color on a dull grey day
