I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine always seem short. I'm starting off this week with my anniversary dinner outfit. Actually, a funny, or rather interesting story to go with it. We came to visit my parents and some friends in Kitchener, a city one hour away from Toronto. Both my husband and I completely forgot about our anniversary. We had talked about it couple of days earlier but the day of, nothing. Last minute he remembered it and wanted to take me out for dinner. I had nothing to wear. I had not planned to go out that weekend so all of the clothes that I packed consisted of shorts and casual t-shirts. The mall was already closed so I could not go shopping. Luckily I had this skirt which I brought with me to finish sewing (you can see here what it looked like originally). I also had brought my new Manolo Blahnik. These were one of the birthday gifts from my family and a few friends. My parents had not seen them however, so I brought them with me to show them off :). Earrings and some other jewellery I always carry in my makeup box just in case, and clutch I had forgotten at my parents last time I visited. I guess it pays off sometimes to be forgetful :). The belt, well I don't seem to go anywhere without it since I bought it. So I had to put together an outfit with what I had available. I personally love it, how about you? Thanks for your emails and comments. Ciao!
