I am reading the fifth book of Fire & Ice series by George R.R. Martin. I started reading the first book of the series at the end of June and I can’t seem to put the books down. The television series “Game of Thrones” opened my mind to the possibility I could maybe enjoy a fantasy series like this. It has been described as the Sopranos of the Fantasy Genre and I have to agree. I really enjoy the character development and the twists and turns. My favourite female character has to be Dany and I have a place in my heart for Tyrion Lannister.
Besides reading my summer has been full of swimming pools and parks, very typical for this season. To be honest fashion has been toned down in my every day. It’s just easier when you take four kids for a swim that everything be simple. I usually live in cotton dresses and shorts (I am still wearing shorts) that are comfortable but today I am featuring my newest love and a very big trend – my lace dress. Anything lace is very popular and I am really enjoying it – its feminine and soft. Today it is all about fire and summer…just like the weather in Fire & Ice…but like the Stark’s say “Winter is coming” and with that being said in a few weeks I will be partnering up with a Toronto boutique to show you looks for fall. I know fall…
I bought this dress at Macy’s in NYC while I was touring the city on foot with my four kids. I was alone and needed some retail therapy. Thank God for large change rooms. It was an interesting day, I would recommend it, just to see how long you can keep your patience with children…or because misery loves company!
I bought these sunglasses at Costco. Yup! They are Burberry and they are fabulous. I have seen Fendi Mia Borsa bags on-line and they have Longchamp available in store. We won’t even get into their jewellery. I purchased a pair of Tom Ford sunglasses on-line and they broke before a year, Costco gladly took them back and returned the money to my credit card. You cannot BEAT that service.
I just wanted to switch up the shoes so you can see that you can add a pop of colour with this dress.
