What Would Ines Wear?

 This Ines de La Fressange for Uniqlo dress purchased in Paris was sitting in my closet for a while
I was wondering at one point why I acquired it
Was it because i wanted something from Uniqlo? or seduced with the idea of owning a piece from Ines?

So that said, i pondered a long time about how to wear this dress without looking too matronly - Wear the wrong shoes and accessories and hello grandma!

Hubby  is not a big fan of the dress, you know men, anything with a pattern is a picnic tablecloth for them
 But i think if  found the right shoes / boots and accessory to wear this dress
It's classic, but at the same time, it  has a fun 70s vibe

Dress - Ines de La Fressange for Uniqlo- Purchased in Paris
Belt - Thrifted at Renaissance - Montreal
 Italian boots -  Thrifted at St-Vincent de Paul -  Montreal

If not too late i will join the Fab Ladies at Visible Monday 

See you soon

BB - Bold and Beautiful

First and foremost, let me start with Sylvia at 40PlusStyle who did a piece on 
Most Stylish Midlife Women on Instagram
As far i am concern we, I say , seniors or midlifers Ladies
require serious recognition for their contribution to keep fashion on the bloggersphere fun, stylish and out of the box
I celebrate the ones who dare to put themselves out there, no matter the style.
My priorities as far as dressing these days are, to be warm and comfortable 
We have to go through  atrocious sub -zero  months here in Montreal

 Suede Jacket - Thrifted at Renaissance
Top - Retail
Skirt - Retail
DocMartens - Retail
My Instagram widget on my blog is out of order
Too much activity,isn't crazy?

I had some questions about Korean Cosmetics 
Why do i like them so much?

They are cheaper and i feel that i have better results
My skin is more radiant and supple
It moisturizes the skin better
I love the masks, you don't have to put anything else after, the skin glows
I'm not kidding, i see the difference right away
I'm not looking for a miracle,  i know i will be wrinkled and everything will be going downwards but at least i will be super moisturized!

My favorite products are so far -  

MediHeal -  Charcoal mask and cleanser
Iope - BB cream, it's a wet spong in a compact, perfect coverage- I love and love it!
Missha- BB cream 

See you soon

It's All About the Universe

Sometimes the Universe talks to you
A girl needs at some point a sign  to go on
I got a good one today
I checked my Instagram account this morning and to my surprise i had more 2000 followers!
Non, non can't be? what happened?
I was featured on Buzz Feed as 

                15 Amazing Senior Style Instagrammers You Should Follow Right Now

Well, i will be 55 next month so it makes me officially a senior
As a senior
I will  wear  only colorful clothes
Spend my retirement funds on DocMartens
Only use Korean Cosmetics
Eat as much baklavas as  I want
And shave my head
What will you do when you are a senior?
Skirts were thrifted at Renaissance

Blind Love

Working for a non-profit organization  that defends the rights of the visually impaired makes aware of all the injustices of this world
People are  sometimes mean, judgmental and discriminating towards the handicapped
I have heard no non- sense stories from my visual impaired co-workers
All they want is lead a normal life
And sometimes we make it difficult for them
I have heard the worst terrible stories
I'm happy to work there, it makes me more aware of the issues they deal with and i will do my personal help them and educate who ever is on my path and not treating them the way they should be treated
I got blind love now!


Now the fun stuff!
I purchased that dress from the fabulous Pink Cheetah Vintage shop on Etsy
This dress is versatile, comfortable and fun
You can style in so many ways
I kid you not, vintage is the best
You get a unique look every time
Too bad my co-workers can see me!

Sorry if i'm  not around that much
Struggling with my schedule
Getting back to work after 10 months at home is not easy
Thank heavens i have the best husband who supports and helps me 

See you soon

Busy But Fabulous!

It has been a busy for me lately
This is why i was not so present on the blogger sphere but took the time to check out my favorite blogs but not always leaving comments, sorry dear bloggers!
I have a plausible excuse
I started new job this week and i loving it btw!
I'm working as an admin assistant for a small non-profit organization for the blinds
I have been learning the ropes this week
It's complete different experience for me
My boss is blind so is most of the staff
There are only 2 non-blind person
One of them is me
I have to think of stuff like, don't move crucial  things around, keep them at the same place, like the dish soap i used and didn't put it back where it was and looking at my colleagues in the kitchen wondering at what they were looking for in the cupboard above the sink and realizing oh! shit! i didn't put the dish soap back at it's right place!
They all laugh of course and said - You will get use to it!

My boss needs a signature guide and a pen when she has to signed a document
When she gets  regular mail i have to scan the letter and use a software so she can listen to  what is written on the  letter or  read the document to her

They all have earphones to listen to their e-mails
The software which reads their e-mails is called Jaws

You have to make sure nothing is their way when they move around the office
They all make jokes about their handicap
They are inspiring!
And, and... i can pretty well wear what i want cause they can see  me!
But before all that fun began 
We had to run to an emergency vet clinic the night before i started work
Leo our cat had broken his thighbone
He was such in pain
The vet told us they probably would have to amputate the leg or if not it would not heal properly, the cat was going blind....so we had to make a decision
It was so hard, we decided to put him down
Poor thing he was such a sweet cat
I'm still wondering how it happened?
We found him on his back  hollering  and panicking in the hallway 
My God! what an experience i kid you not!
I'm learning the piano, Mom is giving me piano lessons, and i'm taking another yoga class
Life is busy
Life is good
I will find time for blogging and commenting

All items are thrifted and the the bag is a gift from Christel when i was in Paris this fall , check her blog out here

See you soon!

Festive Events

2 major events in Montreal's bloggersphere this holiday season

 First - A photo shoot with my favorite fashionistas

Uncle George  soon 90 years old
Dad - 82 years old
Dearest Hubby
Fabulous Aunt Marguerite soon 90 years old
  Second - A visit to a special church in my hood

Très- Saint -Nom- de- Jésus Church was built between 1903 and 1906 and was declared unsafe and closed in 2010
The archbishop of Montreal declared that they couldn't assume the church's upkeep nor the major masonry work necessary
There were talks of demolition and sale of its Casavant organs
But it was saved and reopened on Christmas Eve
We went Christmas day and what grand sight it was!
I knew it was mind blowing but not to that extent!
I was so proud that this church was saved
 Nowadays we witness much to often demolition of historic buildings
It's a good feeling to think that a group of people cared enough to save it 
Here are some pics ,but i kid you not ,they don't give it justice
If you want to know more about the church  it click here
 Happy New Year to all 
I know! ! have been a lazy blogger
I have to check all your fabulous blogs soon!

And Yes! I have found a job
I start after the holidays
I will be working for a non-profit org for the blinds
I'm very happy and hope all goes well!

Will see you soon!
