Almost Fall

It's been pretty busy since I returned from my shoot in the Kootneys, now it's the weekend. Looking forward to sleeping in.

The other night, I checked out the Comrags trunk show in Gastown.  Comrags is a Canadian fashion label - beautiful clothes.  I went with my friend Nikki, and we actually behaved ourselves. I've been to these kinds of shows before. On one occasion, I woke up the next morning to find a cute little shopping bag containing a very tiny dress, a few plastic wine glasses, and a pencil with the name of the new shop on it, beside my bed.  My memory was a bit hazy, so I gave the dress a go but I couldn't get it past my shoulders.  Let's just say the refund policy wasn't good.  This episode was the on set of my post purchase doubt syndrome (P.P.D.S.). I never drink at these things now.   I would love the following two frocks though.

Well, as we head into a beautiful weekend, I leave you with a shot of a rusty, vintage bicycle I saw while having a day in the country with my friends Heather and Midge (a.k.a. Lily).
Have a lovely weekend!

How fetching you would be in either of those outfits!!! I love the bike shot, it was fun yesterday.

Well thank you Heather! I can't tell you how much I want those frocks - and they fit too. Should I?

PPDS:I think I've suffered from that all my life (fitting rooms are so oddly lit) but never thought to label it so succinctly - is there a cure?

Pinecone Camp said...

Well, for starters I suggest not drinking while at a trunk show. Oh, and never go shopping with PMS. You can't imagine what I've come home with. Maybe it's just me.

I love No. 19 and those little socks - you would look so cute in any of those. Me, no legs, no little socks.

Yes I have gone shopping with PMS; really not a good idea. Drinking and PMS together; yes that would be a really really bad idea for me.

Thanks Margie. I'm happy you found my blog!
Pinecones are pretty much my favourite thing.....along with maple syrup.
