Saving as much money as I can has been my goal.
I'm not too good at being frugal...but I have been quite prudent with my spending.
My daughter and I ventured out on a bleak and grey afternoon to browse the shops...
"browsing" being the operative word!
Lovely daughter bought several things...
a soft dove grey wool coat, a cute black felted Fedora, several tees and some jeans.
She works in an office downtown and likes to dress well...she loves fashion and mixes vintage, and thrifted items with new garments. I love her sense of style...and may I remind you, she is my fashion advisor!
I browsed too but kept reminding myself that I already own a basic core wardrobe at home,
and it meets my "needs."
I'm drawn to the various shades of grey, especially when it comes to clothing...
I like how it fits in with the black palette that I have chosen for my wardrobe.
I tried on this soft tee top in Forever 21...
and at almost 60 you'd think I would not find a thing in a shop with that name!
There were oodles of young women trolling the aisles, coffees in one hand and cellphones in the other.
"Fast Fashion" are two words that come to mind when looking around and scrutinizing the stock...
this simple top filled a void and the price was reasonably priced
the garment looked well constructed and the fabric is super soft
as I have only two other long sleeved tees in my closet
one in white and the other a blue grey
this will be a staple
I'll be pairing this with my black Barbour quilted vest for starters and layering it with my cardigans.
I have three scarves that will work with it too...
the grey and banana Pashmina, the new black, grey, and cream felted one and the Hermes white a grey silk square.
Window display at Uptown Mall.
It's looking decidedly festive in the parking lot!
I spied a pure white Hellebore blooming in a planter...
such a cheery display, a harbinger of Spring!
I found this vintage jug on the boulevard free pile...
I'm already imagining it filled with our limelight hydrangeas...
or perhaps a bouquet of roses.
In other news, Mr. HB and I watched this very entertaining film...
a couple return to Paris to celebrate their anniversary.
It's a fast moving film that comments on the highs and lows of a marriage.
Like life, it has both joys and sorrows...
I originally mentioned that it was "non stop fun"...and upon careful consideration I have amended my comment...
which was misleading.
(Thank you Duchesse)
I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the acting is superb.
Speaking of fun...I hope you are having some!
