It's kinda funny that we only met two winters ago because when we started to play Dutch bingo or even Hamilton bingo, it was pretty obvious that we all know the same people. Apparently Hamilton has over half a million residents but sometimes it seems like a small town...
But it does not matter that her third cousin's neighbour's ex-best friend is my husband's aunt's neighbourhood mail carrier, what matters is how it's kinda an honour to do a creative shoot with Claire. I wanted to do a really classic (and almost a bit of a throw back?), light hearted editorial against a crisp white wall, featuring the unsung heroes of the Canadian winter and Claire was right on board. And if you are thinking that snow blowers are the unsung heroes, you would be wrong. I'm talking about vintage coats. Fashionable and functional; which is more than snow blowers will ever be.
My vintage coat collection is getting a little ridiculous these days. I try to stick to the one in and one out rule or I sell them to my friend Michelle because I know I can borrow them back from her (strong business tactic... I'll borrow this red dress back too) but the number still seems to grow. And I can't even apologize because being warm and fabulous at the same time is a rare feat for fashion bloggers.
The Hudson's Bay coat with the Canada geese is already sold but I guess my next life challenge will be not keeping that leopard trimmed Pierre Cardin princess coat...
