Funky Dots

Hello Lovely Ladies,

First and foremost, i would like to thank you for all your kind words, tendinitis is not an easy thing, i am off the couch but still have the pain, it will take a while I suppose, back to the physiotherapist this week hope i will not be couch bound all weekend.

My weekend went pretty well, nothing spectacular happened, but just being with Mr. D is complete happiness. We went for supper at new french restaurant in my neighborhood, it was pretty good! We  got the window replacement sorted, cleaned the mess, Mr. D put new curtains in the kitchen window.

We watched Nicholas Nickelby in bed Sunday morning, I love the classics, you can never go wrong with classics made into movies, especially Charles Dickens.

We have an  amazing temperature again today, warm enough to take some pics outside. 

The dress i am wearing is a terrific find at Salvation Army, a 60's polka dots dress, first time i see one like this.    - It was hard to style, dress it up, dress it down, should i wear a belt, what about the shoes...questions, questions....i have a small frame and this dress has a bold pattern- so i decided to keep it simple and dress it down with t funky boots and added a bold gold belt.

Enjoy!  and i will keep smiling xxxxxx
PS - I am on Not Dead Yet Style - Visible Monday

That's a beautiful dress, and I think you've styled it wonderfully, made it very you! Look at that adorable bow, it's so cute!
I hope the tendonitis will gradually improve, it's hard to have constant pain, but hang in there. Sending you lots of love. xxxxx

Hey Ariane, I hope you get some relief soon. I can only imagine. I think you did a great job styling that dress. There are some wonderful clothes and shoes at The Salvation Army. Did a post on it about a month back. They really are more organized and the selection is getting better and better. Sending healing wishes your way. ((HUG))


I love the dress mom! So good! The belt is the perfect touch!


Pull Your Socks Up! said...

EGADS!!!!!!!! Return ticket to Montreal urgently needed to unzip this baby and slip it off you without noticing. That is the most glorious creation I have seen in a very long time and you are THE styling queen!! So sorry to hear of your very painful illness - pain is all-consuming and distractions such as a lovely meal out and some Dickens are perfect ways to try and separate body and mind. My thoughts are with you xoxoxo

OMG, I love the mix and match style with the belt and the boots, look like "opulente dualité" between the luxurious belt and the urbain boots!

The key is definitely to keep smiling. Especially when you look so fabulous!

Following you back.

Dots really look good on you. I adore the gold belt and how it pops out against the dotty dress. :)

Oh my goodness, Ariane! I adore that dress so much, what a find. It looks so beautiful on you, too.
I think you've styled it to perfection, the gold belt is just bling-y enough and the lace-up boots are a funky touch.
Keep smiling, that horrible pain should go soon with all the love and good vibes your many blogging buddies are sending you.
Much love, you gorgeous woman. xxxx
