Tweedle Diddling

{Photos by Pom; wearing Zara skirt, Banana Republic tweed blazer, Jason Wu for Target scarf, bag borrowed from Pom}

When I lived in rainy Victoria, BC I had one pair of sunglasses I inherited from my sister. She bought them to cover her eye infection and later gave it to me. I never really wore them due to the stigma. Whether it was psychological, when I put them on I could feel my eye itching- Gross.

Now living in Ottawa sunglasses are great for summer and also great for pictures in the cold... if you can only see my frown while standing in -5C in a skirt (meanwhile Pom on the other side of the camera in Uggs and a giant parka). Things Canadian fashion bloggers do!!

  3. Sometimes sunglasses are necessary for the sunny, snowy days when the reflection is blinding! It snowed here last night, but thankfully not a ton.

  17. You look amazing--the snow around you should be melting. LOL, that sounds like a great cheesy pick-up line!!! But seriously, you need to keep warm. I don't want you getting sick.

  18. PS - I once found a great pair of sunglasses on the train. I washed them, then cleaned them with alcohol, but I could never put them on. I shop at thrift stores, but some 2nd hand items I just can't use.

  21. the same thing goes with vintage clothing...some comes with a certain 'old' stench. I couldnt bring myself to wear them even if i love them so much.

    Those tights look great!! Great weather & good shots! <3

  22. Okay, that's cold weather. I've been lucky with the good weather the DC area has been getting of late. Not complaining at all.

    I liked how you paired the chevron scarf with the striped dress. Really nice.

  35. Really cute outfit, and congrats for sporting it in such a cold weather! I couldn't live in Canada: between being warm and being fashionable, I'll have to choose the second, thus being sick all the time (exactly what happened during my Christmas vacation there!)
    Sunglasses are a must for me, I even wear them indoors sometimes like Anna Wintour!
