Tweedy & Lacey

Hey Juicettes!

Happy hump day! This Momma has a lot on the go right now so I’m gonna make this quick! Not quite ready to embrace Fall fashion just yet so I thought I would style up my thrifted tweed pants with an ultra feminine lace top. I’m all garden party on the top with a touch of Autumn on the bottom. (hey that rhymes!)

Hello Audrey…are you there?

Happy Friday Juicettes!

Believe it or not I found this dress while thrifting when I was two months pregnant. It was one of those gems that I just couldn’t pass up. I took it on good faith that I would fit into it….eventually….I mean come on, how gorgeous is this Hepburn inspired masterpiece? There is something to be said about the feeling you get when you find that diamond in the rough. I get butterflies in my tummy and I instantly start dreaming about how I will accessorize it and where it will make it’s debut. Ten months later….here we are!

City Stripes meet the Country

Hello Juicettes!

Who doesn’t love stripes? I am obsessed…..pregnant or not, stripes are a staple in my wardrobe. I scored this knit maxi skirt in the sale section at Anthropology for next to nothing! My penchant for pattern mixing overtook all logic so I styled the look with this vintage cropped bolero that was stuffed in the back of my closet. The look feels very Jill Sander 2011…..I love it!!!

Yo Yo Yo!

Piggy backing on the kitsch of yesterday’s “How do you say Deee Juicy” post, with a little campy carnival vibe.  This week-end past, Ed and I decided to head over to the C.N.E., that is (the Canadian National Exhibition), for some fatty food, overrated rides and a little blog post action.  Also known as the Ex, this annual extravaganza commenced on August 19th and runs until Labour day Monday (Sept 5th). For many Torontonians, Canada’s largest fair signifies a few things….

  • a place to get hammed and go on rides
  • a place to push the boundaries of your blood/glucose levels
  • seizure inducing strobe lights
  • crazy toothless carnies
  • the end of summer and possibly your life if you dare to venture on any of the rides.

Let’s talk ’bout that last point for just a moment. A general rule of thumb, (if going on rides at the C.N.E) – do not look too closely at the Carny operating the mechanics. Not only do they have tiny hands and smell like cabbage (to quote the irreverent Austin Powers), these crazy circus folk are usually drunk and a little “Norman Bates off”…… if you catch my drift. If you are into gambling then roll the dice and ride away, just remember to ask your self how that eighteen foot roller coaster was assembled in one day.

All joking  aside, the C.N.E. is an annual family tradition for many. I mean, come on….who doesn’t love a good carnival midway with rides, games and food?  Tell me about a fair in your home city.

…..and now the fashion.
Channeling a seventies vibe. (duh)
For this trip to the fair, I kept the outfit simple.
Who wants to compete with the assault on the eyes going on in the background.
Isn’t it glorious?

Time to mainline some sugar!

Oh Miss Maggie, how we love your Candy Shoppe!
Way way way too much sugah!

Is it me, or are Merry-Go-Round horses really freaky?
