My grandmother gave me this Royal Stewart scarf with matching gloves in the 60s. She also gave me the same set in black and white plaid. Made in Germany.
We had another snow storm last night. The wind was howling outside my window louder than the coyotes. The weather was not fit for man nor beast. Those are coyote paw prints in the snow to my right. Seriously, we see them sometimes, and we hear them!
In the daylight, the wind had died and the sun was shining in all its glory!
Pullover: H & M
Corduroy leggings: Fred Meyer
Boots: Germany (1982)
Scarf and gloves: gifted from my grandmother
Thanks for stopping by!

A red rose is a symbol of romance.
Romance is always fashionable.
Red is a passionate colour.
I bought this red cardigan with big black buttons at Hudson’s Bay. Looks like I’m on the Brooklyn Bridge …
I’m actually at IKEA.
Red warms up cold February days!
A little wine warms up a cold February evening!
Cardigan: Hudson’s Bay
Pants: Le Chateau
Rubber booties: Cougar

Whether you’re going out on a date with your Valentine or celebrating a special occasion–dressing up adds spice to life.
A lady in red will always be outstanding in a crowd.
I tried on this elegant gown in Le Chateau on my way home from work today. MADE IN CANADA; I love the ruching detail at one side and the bare shoulder looks sensuous and glamorous.
Long black gloves makes me feel like I’m in romantic movie scene. My little black satin purse is big enough for a cell phone, tissue and lipstick.
Gentlemen in Black look sophisticated and I have chosen two suit rentals from THE BLACK TUX that will look great with my red dress.
Ladies – which suit would you like your man to wear?
Gentlemen – which suit would you choose to impress your date?
Dress to impress!!
Linking up with Visible Monday
February – the month of hearts and roses …
Today’s outfit is monochromatic roses: everything from my top to toes.
I love the textures of this long top: black velvet roses and a chiffon hem that looks like I’m wearing a blouse underneath–instant layering. The black chiffon hem is perfect for pattern mixing
Leggings are a staple in my wardrobe because I teach dance and wear them to classes often, so I have more than a dozen pairs.
These ones are faux lace. (Is there such a thing as faux lace?) At any rate, they have a pretty lace pattern.
A close up view shows the lace print looks so realistic.
I bought my faux lace rubber boots at Target when they were closing last year (boo hoo! so sad they closed after only two years in Canada).
I have a collection of silver roses jewellery; my necklace, earrings, bracelet and ring are roses.
