Shades of Blue

Monday, April 23, 2012

In early February, I decided to take a long overdue trip home to Toronto. My usual weekend trips were put on pause when right before Christmas, when I took a huge fall and ended up bruising my tailbone. Not a fun time. But, gradually I got better and I drove home to spend my weekend with family and friends to rejuvenate my spirit.  I took some time to hang out with Lady S. We spent time gabbing (and shopping of course) at Vaughan Mills and sifting through racks of clothing we came across this dress. I just had to try it on and for the price-point (under $30) it was a no brainer.

Our chats led to discussions on how every experience we have can evoke a different set of emotions, feelings and thoughts and that all of us go through them with varying levels of intensity. It’s like a colour palate with thousands of hues. To me, blue could be represented as sky blue and to Lady S, blue could equate navy. While we all look at things in manner of ways, it boils down to this – What we perceive does not mean that it does not exist or is wrong, but just different shades of blue.

What I am Wearing:
Dress: H&M (Purchased February 2012 Still available!)
Sweater: Hand me Down from Cousin A
Belt: BCBG
Shoes: Nine West
Ring: Larimar Stone Ring Dominican Republic  


  1. I love Toronto!!! I always like to check out holy's last call when I'm at Vaughn mills. And you're right you totally have to sift through racks and racks but it's worth it! Love the print on that dress, so fun. Looks great paired with the red shoes!

  2. Loving the print on that dress! I don't recall seeing it at my H&M :(

  3. How true of life - different shades are different views and there is no wrong or right!  I can't wait to get back to H&M in NYC!

  6. It's interesting the conversation that you will have someone, and so true that different people experience things differently, going through all kinds of emotions. Cute dress by the way!


  7. 'Different shades of blue'- I like that, it's very true! Speaking of like, I LOVE this dress on you- sexy but sophisticated and hugs you in all the right ways!

  8. Oh no, a bruised tailbone! Sounds like a call for a doughnut pillow. Glad you got some relaxation in though! Love the black and white.
