When I wear this hat I feel instantly hungry. It always reminds me of Samantha checking out the neighbour in SATC1 and shovelling back guacamole in an attempt to stay faithful... Hmmm, I love guacamole and I haven't had it in a long time... Note to self: ask my assistant to buy some guacamole, better yet, ask assistant to make some from the finest local and organic ingredients (gotta be on trend in the kitchen and in the closet...). Secondary note to self: ask Matt if there is actually room in the budget for an assistant. Cause that would be great...
And this is at least the 47th time we have appeared on security cameras while we take pictures for the blog. It doesn't really bother me, I know the tapes aren't often reviewed and if they are, I always wave at the cameras to be polite. Though part of me is mentally preparing myself for the day some police knock on the door and I am forced explain that we're the ones taking outfit picture behind random buildings, not the ones spray painting naked male body parts on the walls...

This is a gorgeous outfit. Although I love winter you're making me long for those warm days spent lazing around eating guacamole and drinking slurpees.

Liz said...

I love your dress and the hat is so glamorous! You think people would realize there is a whole world of fashion bloggers out there and would stop giving us funny looks!

i shovel guac into my mouth every free opportunity i get. avocados don't last very long in my house.

damn that winners! she giveth and she taketh away. the next time i'm in ontario, (and i have family there, so it'll be legit!) i'm putting the hamilton winners on lockdown until i find all that glorious stuff you seem to walk out of there with. my winners here has an overabundance of obnoxiously shiny baby phat and house of dereon rejects. i hope you feel my pain all the way across the country!!

You are SO adorable. Cute summer perfect outfit!

And I thought the same thing about the hat being similar in a way to Samantha's ginormous one. Mmmmm, guacamole.

Wish I could make you some. I make AWESOME guacamole. Seriously, it's the best.

Only you can peek out from under that big,floppy summer hat and pull off adorable and sexy at the same time.

The dress is gorgeous and I love the gladiators too.

Alex said...

Oh you're so much braver than I am - I have a horror of appearing on CCTV cameras. Perhaps this is due to me having to take my own pics. I think with a photographer you can get away with it a bit more.

Anyway, you look gorgeous! I love the neckline/straps on that dress.

Love the dress! Perfect for summer :)

La Historiadora de Moda said...

Shit! I hadn't even thought about security cameras. I guess that's one advantage to usually doing my outfit photos in the driveway.

I lurve that hat!

Emily Kennedy said...

My God woman! Get thyself some guacamole! I love it, and I can't imagine going for very long without it. My household devours Mexican food at least weekly.

This dress and hat are both so cute on you. I love the last picture!

Kate said...

That dress is amaaaazing! Tempted to run up to winners & see if it's still there! Gah! Love this whole outfit, pure summer perfection!

when the landscaping bidness gets their act together and decides on a physical representative for the career, you better be front and center. damn mama.


on a side note.. you'd be so proud of me. I went to the farmers market this weekend and bought 3 canna lily plants, and then later got 6 dahlia bulbs all of which I replanted into bigger pots on Saturday. I might even remember to keep watering them.. it would help if you held me accountable. Since I know you have a lot of free time and am interested in keeping tabs on someone. I appreciate it, really.

Chelsea said...

simply gorrrrgeous! the hat is fantastic, and verrrry samantha.

pass the guac!

Destined For Now said...

I love the hat...it reminds me of the beach. You should probably wear it there. I think the pictures are so much more fun now that I know they are semi illegal (?).

Emma Clark said...

I love your dress and your poses on the chairs - so fun. It cheered up my day.
