Well apparently, Guelph is the new Dundas. At least it is in my book. I went to lunch with a pal there yesterday. She is in a beautiful historic home she’s just renovated after selling the family abode in Big Smoke. After a charming lunch at Miijidaa (the crispy eggplant sandwich is To Die) I thought I recogized a certain Brora beret in the mid-distance. Sure enough, it was the Incomparable DaniBP running errands. She walks her #abroraforlife talk and looked divine as always.
All of the new spring fashions are starting to show up on blogs and on retailer emails. I really do not need any new clothes but I can never resist the siren song of the new spring line. I’d like to write a modern day version of The Odyssey where Penelope, on her way back home to Odysseus, is tempted by offerings from J. Crew and Saks. After all of those years of weaving and unweaving the same damned piece, fresh textiles would surely lure her up on the rocks.
Right now this is the soft music calling me ashore. It’s the Lady Jacket with Liberty Trim by J Crew and I think it’s simply divine. It’s 20% off right now and in the words of a any QVC host worth her salt, Girls, run to the phone… I think I’ve found where to spend my birthday money!
