Meet Shelley

Hi Ladies!
Lets start the week with Shelley!
Another Canadian Blogger i just discovered
Shelley lives in London Ontario
She also does Street Style photography
Her blog is http://www.forestcityfashionista.com/
Another over 40ish sensational blogger
Never boring!

Here we go ....




10 facts about Shelley....

My favourite thing to do when I was a kid was to draw pictures of my favourite movie stars and then mail them the drawings. I was the only child in my small town who was getting mail from Hollywood, CA.

I performed a routine with a live boa constrictor in a friend's burlesque show

I always wanted to be a dancer, and have taken classes in ballet, tap, flamenco, and modern dance

I didn't learn to drive until I turned 40, and still don't have my license

Canadian writer Alice Munro and I went to the same high school (at different times), and we had the same high school English teacher
I always do my own income taxes
I just recently re-learned how to roller skate, and have my own pair of black old-school skates

I can recite the names of all of Elizabeth Taylor's husbands in chronological order.

I'm a very good mimic (that's mimic, not Mime!)

One of my few regrets is that I never had the patience to learn how to sew, or do any kind of crafts, for that matter



If you are a over 40ish Canadian  fashion blogger let me know!
I would love to meet you!

Hope you enjoyed Shelley

I will be back soon

Have a fabulous week!

Shelley is ultra cool, a fearless diva in the best sense! I always love her individual looks and her street style snapshots. I am familiar with her part of Canada and applaud her wildly for adding flair to the landscape there!! Thanks, Ariane, for helping us learn more about the fabulous Shelley! Snakes and rollerskates - isn't there a song about that?
