Trying to find some colour in the winter, I checked out the shops yesterday and made a few (ahem) purchases at Banana Republic where there's a slightly nautical thing going on with some fun punches of colours -- some citrus which doesn't really work for my colouring, but some of the newer blues as well. Tried on a great graphic-patterned black and white dress -- sheath/shift with great length sleeves, short, but not too (important at my age, even for these Pilates-toned pipes -- kidding!), but left it for now. Prices always drop so much over a few weeks at BR that I thought I'd see what happens. As well, it's very cute and quite flattering, but it's also perhaps too distinctive to be very versatile in my wardrobe -- you know, "Oh my god, is she wearing that black-and-white dress again?"
Now I'm off for a run in the drear and then we're going to see if our crèpe place is open after their long New Year's break. Have to get to the Roy Arden show at the Vancouver Art Gallery 'cause this is the last weekend it's on. Then I'm very excited 'cause I'm meeting an almost-ready-to-defend-her dissertation friend for drinks at The Sylvia later -- haven't seen her for way too long so it'll be quite the chat! And planning to see Juno this evening (saw No Country last night - whew! hard-hitting, Coen brothers!). So there's the schedule and whoops! where's my naptime?
