I'm not a particular sophisticated person, but this outfit made me feel very sophisticated. I guess that's the magic of a structured jacket.

These jeans fit perfectly, but I wish they had belt loops. Pants have a tendency to fall down on me, a curse of having a big stomach with small hips. But I ended up getting the for free so I can't complain. I ordered them from Asos when they were on sale for $25, and when I hadn't received the a month later I emailed the people at Asos to ask what happened. They replied telling me that they hadn't sent them out at all, and since they were now out of stock they refunded my money. A few weeks later, though, they arrived at my parents door step! I don't mean to look gift jeans in the mouth, but do any of you know if it's possible to add belt loops?

I love polka dots, especially big polka dots, so when I saw this top at Old Navy I couldn't say no. I didn't like the sleeves (very voluminous with elastic at the bottom) so I snipped them right off. I figured I'd regret this decision - I often act too fast with a pair of scissors - but thankfully I didn't. I love the little flutter-sleeve going on here!

Happy Thanksgiving weekend, fellow Canadians! I'm a firm believer that Monday is the holiday, but I'm sure a lot of you celebrated today. I'll be celebrating (alone) tomorrow. Who can say no to pumpkin pie? I'll have a little post about it up tomorrow.
