My model buddy lisa invited me out to a runway show for Vancouver's Eco-Fashion Week. "It's fashion-y" she said. "Wear heels." I wore this great little wool strapless Kenzie dress and vintage choker from my sister's closet. The dress has an empire waist, front pleat and pockets. I love pockets! Then for the shoes. I was deciding between these fantastic 4 1/2" slingbacks and my comfy stack-heeled everyday boots.
And then, from seemingly nowhere, the little voice in my head piped up and said "It's February, and you're forty-seven". I zipped up the boots. The show was great. I loved Nicole Bridger (www.niclolebridger.com).
Still not talking to the voice in my head though.

This spot is a busy one. I'm sitting at the T intersection of Beatty and Nelson. There are bikes, dogs, one million cars and busses, several passers-by, and one lady asking directions to Expo Boulevard. Traffic is racing past my toes, headed onto the Cambie Street Bridge via Nelson. Our townhouse is on the left here, obscured by the cars and trees, and that's the lovely Sun Tower Building at the far end of Beatty, on the right.
