… dancing shoes, that is …
Dance Plus in Toronto has a yearly sale for top quality dance shoes, some made in England. After trying on several pairs that I liked, I almost bought these but they had a 3-inch heel and I prefer 2.5-inch heels. They look very elegant but 2.5 is more comfortable and safer.
The store has a fabulous collection of ballroom music CDs!
A stop at Ikea to buy veggie balls (but they were sold out!). I’m lovin’ these new HUE pants!
They remind me of Rupert, the storybook bear who wears trousers like these in yellow.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fantastic Friday!

Something old …
This little scarf is almost as old as I am. It belonged to my mom; little scarves were her trademark.
something thrifted …
My unique shirt is recently thrifted, (Parsley and Sage) 100% cotton. I love the tie-dyed effect and the dazzling trim on the front and back.
something vegan …
This red crossbody purse is top quality, soft nonleather, bought during our winter vacation in Seattle (on Whidbey Island). It has a compartment for everything and goes great with these booties.
something gifted …
My daughter Jean gave me these cute little red booties, I’ve worn them more than she did. She doesn’t wear leather anymore (here’s why). I don’t buy leather anymore but I still wear the ones I have.
Do you shop at thrift stores and wear pre-loved clothes?
If you’re one of my followers, you’ve seen this jacket already a few times. This shade of blush pink is almost a neutral because it goes with so many things I wear. I’ve worn it with blue jeans, white jeans, black pants, pink floral jeans, shades of magenta leggings and here with black floral pants.
I promote slow fashion and ethical clothing. Getting use out of what’s in our wardrobe and having versatile clothes that you can mix and match for different looks is key to stretching our dollars. These floral pants are a recent purchase at a thrift store when my fashionable friend Maggie and I were in a fashion show and we decided to go thrift shopping afterward.
You might think you’ve seen me wearing them before because I have another similar floral pair. They’re a little different but I bought these ones, planning to cut them shorter and make capris. That way I’ll have pants and capris with a lovely floral pattern. So next time you see these, they’ll be capris.
My Favourite Spring Jacket
I have a collection of little flower purses in various colours, so handy for my cell phone and keys, lipstick and a tissue.
Do you fancy florals?

Pink Panther Earrings
We started the day off having a delicious breakfast–tofu scramble made by Chef Douglas. Luanne and I had a pleasant discussion about fashion and women over 50. Can a woman over 50 wear Pink Panther earrings? What about a woman who’s almost 70 (in three years)? Well, you already know my opinion because I’m wearing them. Luanne (50) has gingerbread man earrings. Fashion is fun!
Our Day Trip
New Dundee is a sleepy little town, the kind you’d miss if you blink your eyes passing through. With only a little over a thousand residents, it sure draws a crowd every year for the town’s annual community garage sale. The park if full of vendors selling new things and I was so happy to find the perfect straw hat for my blush pink jacket.
I bought the scarf in St. Jacobs recently and I love the silver butterflies on it. I’m so pleased it all matches.
Luanne and I both bought straw hats: I chose pink for my outfit which will go with several of my summer clothes and she chose blue for hers. The blue hat is perfect for jeans and her sporty look.
Fashion is fun and even more fun with friends!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fantastic Friday!
