Crops & thigh highs

Wearing crop tops into fall is easy with a high waisted skirt & cardi. I love my crop tops too much to say good bye for the season! Also, love this trick of putting thigh highs on lace tights. When I wore thigh highs on bare skin I find that they slip down, but on lace tights they stay right up!

Thanks to the team at Every Wear Edmonton for the feature in the Edmonton Journal. It was a great day to be published as it was the launch day of the Edmonton Journal redesign/rebrand. The new website is lookin’ slick and is easy to navigate.

Later this week I put my hair up in a bun. Good ol’ Slowklap was claiming that people who don’t have enough hair or the skill to make a bun themselves don’t deserve to have buns. But I use bun shapers all the time, I said. We settled that it was OK if the bun shaper is small and not obnoxious. I can live with that.

Also wanted to send some archi-love to LeMarchand Mansion, in my opinion one of the most under appreciated buildings in the city. It’s a great place to begin a walk as it upwardly borders the river valley and Victoria Golf Course. There are a few old gems interspersed around the city, and this one is worth a bit of a detour.
