We’ve had some gorgeous weather in Montreal this week- And that called for much dress styling around here!
This week’s looks began with last Saturday’s first venture…I was off to a local refuge to get acquainted with a 1 year-old pup recently brought in from Mexico.
I fell in love immediately- but had to make sure I wasn’t allergic. Everything was fine while I interacted with her (for almost an hour). But then, when I got home- Oh Dear! The allergies wouldn’t stop. What a let-down for both pup and I. I was so sad. My daughter thinks that maybe it wasn’t the pup herself, but rather that she was not washed and was amongst so many other dogs…maybe that was what triggered it all? In any case, does anyone know of any cure for this? I don’t want to keep having to go to breeders for non-shedding dogs- I really want to rescue instead. Please let me know in your comments.
The good news is though…She got adopted- so she is now in a home (too bad it’s not mine!!)
This past weekend was also Italfest! Usually we have Italian Week in August – but this year, Montreal has changed that from one week to the whole month of August! So Italians can celebrate in different areas around town. We went to Little Italy. As usual, the food, music, dancing, kiosques were all great. Here’s a pic of an Italian singer singing a patriotic song while people sang along and danced. This was very emotional for me as it reminded me of my dad…
Here’s what I wore to Italian fest:
Wednesday’s Collaboration for #wearitwednesday
The theme was ruffles, so what better than this butter yellow tiered dress by Vero Moda. This is another one of those I can wear backwards if I choose. I wore it the right way in these pics, layered over a white bralette; which was necessary as the top part is a little too floaty on me. Loved pairing these vintage glass beads with it. And gold strappy sandals from The Hudson’s Bay polished off the look.
The rest of the week and in between, here are more OOTD’s:
I’ll have to show you a better pic of this next dress that I got in Greece. It was created by a local designer there (who doesn’t have Instagram or a website- yet). It’s flowy and the straps around the collar can be worn in different ways. It also has a ruffle at the bottom.
It’s Now Time for the LINKUP!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Remember to please leave me a comment- I love those! Especially about what to do when you want another pup so bad but can’t handle your allergies! Thanks.
See you next week- Bisous!!
