As CM mentioned, we were recently invited to a taping of the hit CBC show Battle of the Blades. For those that don’t know what the show is about – it’s kind of like Dancing with the Stars but with professional figure skaters and ex-NHL hockey players. The show has gained a lot of attention and is aired in the US as well. Go Canada! The performances were great, and I especially loved the Bollywood Slumdog Millionaire routine performed by Shae-Lynn Bourne and Patrice Brisebois. The outfits were vibrant and fun, and Patrice was the nicest to look at of the male contenders. You can catch Battle of the Blades every Sunday and Monday at 8 pm on CBC.
I wore my new Roots socks to the show and I was quite impressed by them. Yes, even socks excite me! I like the look of great socks poking out the tops of boots, and not only did they look good but they were extremely warm too. Perfect for the studio arena we were in.
I also wore:
* Denim jeggings, Costa Blanca
* Denim shirt, Zara
* Chunky knit cardigan, DEX (Winners)
* Old man driving cap, Kensington Market
* Lace-up boots, H&M
And this is my deer caught in headlights look (wasn’t ready for the camera!)….. JD

Things were all fine and dandy at The Ceili Cottage until…the wind changed and the camp fire smoke blew right into my eyes! And here we thought blogging was all fun and games – this is dangerous stuff! Last weekend, while hanging out in the East end, I wore a Liz Claiborne blazer that was an old Christmas gift from my Mom; a striped turtle neck dress from Zara on Bloor for $20; belt, Costa Blanca on Bloor belt for $6; Silks stockings; Roots messenger and H&M on Bloor lace-up boots.
And you caught me without my nails painted.
Love detailing like this. CM
Knowing I was going to pack up all my Winter coats this weekend, I decided to rock this faux fur number in my concrete jungle one last time. Julie refers to it as my “Wild Thing” jacket and I think she is dead on. I found it last summer at a flea market in Owen Sound, Ontario and I just love the bulky sweater-like arms. It was priced at $5 and I snatched it up before anyone around me heard the sellers price. The only problem is that it had that flea market smell and was quite dusty. Dry cleaning charges are the same for faux fur as they are real fur. I was dinged with a $55 bill. Ouch!
My messenger bag was a purchase made at the start of my first year at Western. It is from Roots and so far it has proven to be timeless. The classic leather brown belt is also a University oldie and it is from American Eagle Outfitters. Goorin hat is from their men’s collection but that suits me just fine. Leggings are from Zara on Bloor and boots are from Aldo online.
Have you seen the movie yet? I just loved it! CM
