An Antique Afternoon








{Wearing Salvatore Ferragamo heels, Zara tweed blazer, American Apparel pants}

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! I ended up spending yesterday by myself in a hotel in Calgary... I don't want to get into it or else my leftover Hulk-ness will just come out again. I'll just say that I'm flying Air Canada from now on.

Right before I left Justyna and I went to the Ottawa Antique Market on Bank. What a wonderful way to spend a cold winter afternoon- AND I haggled into a $25 discount for my antique cameras. It had me all giddy. I know. I'm SO Asian, and I'm SO going back there when I get back.

  11. That airline sucks!!! I'm so sorry you got stuck. I always look for a silver lining, but I'm coming up empty. I mean, you get to skip- right to enjoying leftovers, but that's a stretch.

    Those old cameras are really cool. Sellers don't need to lower the price of items like that, so you must have awesome haggling skills.

    Hope today is going better for you.
