anyone in canada can tell you we’ve had a surprisingly mild winter so far. usually, in québec city, we can expect our first snowfall in early november. this year, however, we’ve been holding off the snow for the most part – in fact, i think i’ve only see three little snowfalls that have hardly lasted. so obviously this has had a huge impact on how i’ve been dressing! i’m always happy to stave off the winter boots a wee bit longer.
without further ado, here’s a selection of some of my favourite november outfits.
on my way to see sandro perri & ryan driver at l’agitée, a really really fantastic show. impossible spaces is definitely one of my favourite albums of 2011!
visiting a strange hotel in ste foy to celebrate my partner’s sister’s birthday
hands down my favourite outfit of the month. one of my favourite vintage dresses, paired with backseam tights, my ox-blood t-strap heels.
you’ll see a theme coming along now… i mostly wear the same coat every day, and i kind of love it. automatic glamour.
nov 9th. i wish i had a better photo of this outfit, but take my word for it, i looked badass. 1940s black dress with lace detail, paired with faux lace grey and white tights and boots. i can’t remember why i felt like dressing up but i’ll definitely put it together again.
nov 10th. this was the day a bunch of kids yelled “hé la fille gothique!” at me. definitely never been called a goth before!
highlight of my november? my babely sisters coming to visit! here we are in the oldest cemetary in quebec city. notice that a tree has grown around a gravestone?!
we went for dinner at the fanciest restaurant in town (by my account!), moine échanson, and had like a three course décadent soirée. it’s important to spoil yourself every once in a while! and this is where i like to do it.
wearing patterned tights over coloured tights is totally where it’s at.
can you guess what i’m trying to channel/what we were listening to? we were celebrating 11:11:11
the first snowfall! in front of my house.
not the best photo, but those are some fun new tights!
yup! still biking in november!
at my writing date with karina, nov 21st
new pencil skirt i scored for A DOLLAR. man i miss good thrift stores.
my fancy little suitcase, quick trip to montreal for expozine!
at expozine! fun times.
BEST TIMES EVER. hanging out with sves, simon, and a KITTEN.
you can’t tell in this photo but those tights are SO good.
this was the day a woman stopped me in the streets and insisted i was from a time travel machine.
daisies daisies everywhere.
there you go! woah! lots of photos.
