...and this is what came out: Congrats to Melanie on her new hair accessory, I know she'll do it justice!
I decided to wear the bow last week before it went off to its new owner, and discovered that once again, the lovely Lili and I had some sort of style telepathy going on, as we were both sporting green bows that day.
I wasn't intentionally going for a Christmas vibe - I was really just looking for an excuse to wear my new-to-me Maple Leaf Tartan (Canada's official tartan, which incorporates the changing colours of maple leaves into the design) jacket I found on the sale rack at The Sentimentalist for $5. It's a lovely fine wool, made by the Canadian company Highland Queen, with covered buttons and flap pockets near the cropped hem.

As usual, while I went for the casual and funky, Lili went for the Chic. She found her plum-coloured cotton velvet dress in Copenhagen (yes, the one in Denmark) for $20, and accessorized it beautifully with a green leather bow belt, tassel necklace and sleek boots.
And while I'm at it, I might as well kill two birds with one stone, and get in on the Style Crone's February Hat Attack
With the weather we've been having, this is the only kind of hat that I've been wearing.
