March was intense
March was the month i returned to work

March put me in the creating mood again

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!

Hope you enjoyed Shelley

In The Pink

Hi Ladies!

I replied to some of you but not all, but i will!
Thank you so much for your comments!
Hope you are doing well Ladies!

The heat wave continues in Montreal

Mr D. and i went to Quartier Latin  to see a show at St-Denis Theatre which is located on St-Denis Street
St-Denis streets is one of the hipster neighborhoods in Montreal
You will find trendy shops, and restaurants
One of Montreal's best point of interest

This is where people dress like me!

Photobucket

I thrifted this coat about 2 months ago for a ridiculous $9


Photobucket


We went and see one of Quebec's best humorist at Theatre St-Denis
Big disappointment, not funny at all
It was his first show in 11 years
This humorist has been around for a while.
He turned actor, producer and is very good at it
If you can get a movie called Bon Cop Bad Cop - watch it - it is really good - shows the  clash  between the  2 cultures , french and english - Quebec and Ontario

But his show i last night...ummmm...

Photobucket


Quebec has a huge love history with its humorists
They are the equivalent of a famous soccer- football player
We love our humorists so much that we have a festival in the summer called Just for Laugh

 

Photobucket


I could not resist taking this pic on my way home this week
It was birthday party and the stairs were covered with balloons

Photobucket

 
I was wearing for this post...

Jacket- Thrifted at Renaissance
Skirt - Thrifted at Renaissance
Legging - Fringues & Cie ( YWCA)
Shoes - Retail  purchased at Winners

I will be back soon

The 8 Dollar Trend

Hi Ladies!

First and foremost, welcome new readers and thank you all you lovely Ladies for all your fabulous comments.
I will reply to everybody!

The snow is almost gone, we have been having summer like temperatures.
Our fair city is swamp with all sorts of winter garbage.
Montreal sorry to say is not a clean city, i have seen better.
Cleaning crews will surface and clean that mess but not before the end of April.

In the meantime there is sunshine in my world...

Photobucket


I called this post the $8 dollar trend because the whole outfit cost about $8 except for the shoes which are an investment- I will have those shoes for a long time and they will not go out of style

Photobucket
