A family event this past Saturday evening called for some fancy attire. It’s fun to play dress up from time to time. I’ve had this little number for quite a while, but I think this is only the second time I have worn it. That’s the sad part about most fancy dresses. They don’t get to leave the cupboard and play very often and they’re usually not cheap. A friend of mine had this dress in a gold colour and I loved it so much I bought it in silver. So I’m not a complete copy cat! Of course the Louboutin pumps were a no brainer. I love those things! The one area where I always find myself borrowing is in the evening bag department. I never have the right one! Good thing my mum does! Anyway, we danced the night away and had a blast!
OK. So the truth is that I’ve been hoarding outfits to post the last couple weeks. I once again had surgery to replace the expander that had an issue after my first breast cancer surgery. I’m doing well this time. Everything is in place and no infections. I’m just not in a position to be putting on cute little outfits to be photographed. In fact, I think I may just cancel Valentine’s Day this year. While my amazing husband doesn’t care if I wear sweat pants and a huge top to hide all the goings on up there, I’m just not feeling so sexy and romantic at the moment. This outfit was the last set of pictures we took before my surgery. I love the flowing cardigan that’s see-through enough to let the stripes show. I also had to include my little Lubi. I gave him a bath that morning and he was just looking so fluffy and adorable. I couldn’t resist. He’s my little rock. He’s like a real live stuffed animal. He sleeps curled up beside me and goes to get daddy when I wake up so he can help me and he sits cuddled up next to me all day long.
I promise as I heal and start to look more normal more amazing outfits will follow. See you soon!!

There’s just something ironic about wearing a nice floral top and floral jewellery during a snow storm. Why not? This winter has been crazy so you have to have fun with it. Being that I was scheduled to have more surgery to remedy this whole breast cancer thing that I’ve been dealing with I decided that I would like to go out for a somewhat special supper before I was stuck in my house for a while. It’s especially difficult to pick footwear when you know you’re going to have to walk through some kind of slop even if there is valet parking. I love these platform booties but they are quite old so I just went with it. And wait until you hear about this fabulous jeans score. I found J Brand coated skinnies in my size, on clearance at Marshall’s for $25.00! Awesome!
