If you had told me months ago that I'd get caught up in Stanley Cup fever, I would've laughed in your face. But as I watched each game with the boy I became more and more emotionally invested. On the day of game 7, my feelings went from elation to disappointment, culminating in disgust and mortification at the riots. Kudos to the fans and Vancouverites who showed up yesterday to clean up the downtown core, and to those who left messages of love and support on the boarded-up windows of the BMO and Hudson's Bay Company buildings. You showed the best side of Vancouver when some despicable hooligans chose to cast this city in the worst light.
It feels trite going from talking about the riots to an outfit, but this is a fashion blog after all and life goes on. So, speaking of which...aren't the 'Abigail' sandals great? I found a pair in a light tan colour at the Dakota Group sample sale. Although I put them on for the outfit shots you see here, at the last minute I switched to flat Pour La Victoire 'Nanette' sandals before going out. One day I will wear them out in public, I promise! It's just that the thought of having to do lots of walking in 4.5" heels makes me nervous. Maybe I'll wear them on a day when the boy and I have something planned which involves me being able to sit down the entire time.
