Patato Masher in Old Montreal And What i Wore This Week

Hi Ladies!

Busy week for me

I had to go for X -rays this week

My shoulder is starting to  hurt me again

The doc asked for a chest X-ray and a shoulder X-ray

A bit worried about the chest X-ray -
Plus i made an appointment with an occupational therapist - I must be doing something wrong at work, posture wise  ect... I will find out - Hopefully it will help me -


Izzy and I went to Old Montreal last weekend

The pic was taken in the Old Port - What you see is Habitat 67

These were futuristic homes built in conjunction with Expo 67 


This pic was taken by Izzy on St-Jacques Street

I was shooting St-James Hotel

St- James hotel is where the big stars stay when they come to Montreal

St-Jacques street was home of  all the banks'  Head Office way back when  -


One of the Bank's magnificient entrance


My look at me outfit that day

Over the top - i know - but it is me - I would not have it any other way -  and frankly i don't care

It is all about having fun!


Now  -some outfits i wore this week ....



Street Art in Old Montreal


Potato  masher with our previous Prime Minister's face

This is not not a tribute to our previous Prime Minister

He lost his seat in September 2012

He was not liked at the end of his mandate

He was held responsible for the student crisis we had this year


Have a fabulous weekend Ladies

I will be back soon

Je vous fais la bise Ariane

Hi Ariane, I love your graphic outfit! The hot pink, black and white. Gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing photos of Old Montreal. It's always fun to see other parts of the world. And, no snow yet?! The weather looks beautiful. Here we have so much rain...Sending you positive thoughts and well wishes. Hope you feel better!

Love all those outfits. The colors are so vibrant. Just makes me happy looking at them.

Hot pink with graphic black and white is one of my FAVORITE combinations, and you look smashing!! I'm glad you and Izzy were able to get out and about together to enjoy your beautiful city.

Sorry you're having pain!! I hope you find the cause quickly, and be on the road to recovery very, very soon.

Cambria said...

Ha, I love quirky kitchen gadgets like this! What a find! Beautiful architecture too, you have an artist's eye. I'm sorry to hear about your shoulder and hope the doctors figure things out!

Hysterical! You KNOW how I feel about Masher Fashion! So sorry to hear about your shoulder. I, myself, am heading in for~yikes~ back surgery in a few weeks. Same thing, an injury that just would not get better on its own. Ugh! But I am certain that You & I will both be bouncing around like teenagers before you know it. BEST OF LUCK! Love, Connie*

Katrina Blanchalle said...

The jacket/vest combo is delightful!
I hope your doctors can come up with some new therapies for your shoulder. I know how painful and upsetting it is when it drags on for so long.

Lynne DeVenny said...

You don't look over the top at all, just fabulously, colorfully you. Love the potato masher. Hope your shoulder gets better soon!

Patti said...

The bank is indeed magnificent! All of your pics of Old Montreal make me want to visit toute de suite. Love your colorful looks, of course, and the potato masher is just hi-larious!

i'm sorry about the pain in your shoulder. hopefully the therapist can help you to find out what is the reason and shows you some exercises which give you relief.
your (and izzy's) pis of old montreal are wonderful. it is always fun to stroll through the town with an enterprising daughter, i know, her view mostly is different from ours, that's inspiring.
your outfits are inspiring too, my favorite of today is the one with the patterned pants and the striped shirt, but you look fantastic in all.
i hope your shoulder will be better soon. have a great weekend!

Melanie said...

I'm so glad you're over the top! I hope you never come down. Your colours and energy are electric. And the potato masher is superb. LOL. I want one with every politician's face. I'm am really hoping this shoulder thing is a seasonal hiccup - here today, gone tomorrow. That would be great!!

grunge-queen said...

Fabulous photos and colours, as always Ariane - you look fabulous. I have only seen those buildings on TV and in movies (they are in one of my fave flics, AfterGlow, with Julie Christie and Nick Nolte), but they look applicable even now. I wonder if the potato masher was made after the guy lost his seat? :) :) Have a great weekend. xoxo

Sacramento Amate said...

Gorgeous in every shot.
I hope it all goes well with the dc. Not nice, but necessary, lol
Happy weekend, my dear friend.

Tres chic! What a neat and eye-stopping outfit! Montreal looks so interesting; it's one place I would like to go to at some point.

Much love from England,

When I had shoulder problems it was due to having to have my arm up on my desk to move the mouse. When I got an underdesk keyboard drawer and mouse area it really helped me.
I love your outfits. Your over the top fabulous is what I love about you.

The Style Crone said...

Hope that your shoulder pain resolves shortly and that all is well in your world. Your ensembles are stunning as usual and the tour of Old Montreal has me yearning to visit you city.

Helga! said...

Bummer to hear that your shoulder has been playing up,lovey!I do hope it's nothing serious, and that just a look at how you are working can sort you out!
YAY for a bright and colourful post,your face is so cute last picture!XXX

Joni said...

I wouldn't want you to dress any other way either! I'm especially loving the outfit right above the street art shot. That little graphic tee is just great. I think that's one you just bought if I remember right.
Looks like a fun outing with your daughter!

Krista said...

Pretty colors and smile as always! I hope your aches and pains pass fast. As soon as the weather changes I feel all my pain come back. At least there is Spring to look forward too!

I hope the shoulder pain gets better - I know what it's like to have work-related discomfort. It's always fun to see what electric colour combinations you come up with.
