Groovy November

Bonjour Fabulous People!

It is a quiet Friday for me - no doctor's appointment, no physio, no massage therapist, no nothing and this good - Yesterday was busy - I had to drop papers to be filled out by the doctor for my short term disability insurance, and by the way this cost me a  $100 -! I almost choked! We have a public health care system here but it seems that the extras are very lucrative for the doctors, anyhoo, hooo and more hoooo, better not complain too much, I have a family doctor and around here this is what a good part  of the population  is dreaming to have -

What else did i do...I dropped my insurance claims downtown, made a video for Vix in the park, she wanted to ear my voice, wanted to know if i sounded a bit like Colette in Pan Am... but she could not opened my video e-mail,  too bad, but good too, i looked funny, you know when you are filming yourself and you do not know where to look but at same time you want  to look at the screen just to see how you look like, oh well...

Good News! physio is starting to work, less pain! first time in 4 weeks that the pain is endurable, but still need to do more physio...and of course, rest lots of rest!
Went to Montreal's underground city while waiting for Izzy  - For your info - it is  the longest underground city in the world -

This is what the Web says - 

Montreal's underground pedestrian network, which began beneath the Central Station complex, took off during the 1960s when Place Ville-Marie was built.
This initial core would expand considerably with the construction of Place Bonaventure. The metro, which opened in 1966, would extend it much farther still.
Here too, the transportation infrastructures criss-cross and complement each other. The elegant Place Bonaventure metro station, for instance, designed by Montreal architect Victor Prus, links the CN complex with the rest of the city and allows pedestrians to reach Windsor Station without venturing outdoors.

Did some fast fashion shopping with Izzy at Forever 21 - Yes i confess i went there!

Now today's outfit -

Sweater thrifted at Renaissance Montreal
Suede and faux fur Vest thrifted at Fringues &Cie  -YWCA
Parasuco Pants - Parasuco is a Canadian company - thrifted at Fringues & Cie - YWCA
Fish Necklace - Purchased in the underground city
Shoes - H &M

Enjoy! Have a good weekend Ladies

Je vous fais la bise xxxxx

I have been on the montreal subway back in the 70's and was very impressed. It was clean and swift.

i eliminated color from my wardrobe, slowly over the last couple of years (many reasons, blah blah blah) but i love seeing it on others, if done "right". you do it right!
there's something very appealing about milky turquoise and intense orange....so good in a cold climate. :)

Lorena said...

You had me at the vest - but, the nails.
I adore the nails !
