The Week That Wasn't

The cold I brought back from New York has been a nasty motherf**cker that has knocked me out for the last week.  In addition to missing three days of work, I have taken no photos.   When I am able to stop coughing for more than 5 minutes, I'll be out in the world again.  In the meantime, here are some photos that I took before my trip...

When I was at the Western Fair Farmers' Market I spotted one of London's Roller Derby Girls, Glamarchist, wearing this awesome bicycle print coat.  She said it was from Smoking Lily in Vancouver

I love coats that have a unique print or colour - such a nice visual vacation from all the black that starts coming out this time of year


 I love her whole look, especially the skulls and hearts leggings.  I took a closer look at her jacket...

her self-made statement for the day....she's got hat-itude AND attitude

  1. Hi Shelley, so sorry to hear you've got the damn plane virus. I hate getting sick from a vacation. But from the proof in the photos you must have had a splendidly gleeful time!
    Love that pin, what a great way to carry around a message. Looks like a somewhat easy project too.

    Get well this weekend!
