For some reason, I look especially sour in these photos. Not sure why…I really liked this outfit. The back of the blouse has some neat layering detail, although unfortunately I didn’t manage to get a decently in-focus shot.
I am ultra annoyed that today’s picks are grainy (again!). I don’t know what the issue is… At least I know yesterday’s pics are the result of over processing the images in Picasa… However, this is not the case with today’s pics – there were next to no modifications made.
Otherwise, I don’t have a lot to write. Last week was a blur of stress. Hopefully this week will be better… I have some serious Christmas shopping to do. Kevin and I started picking up gifts this weekend (‘early’ by our standards), but we are nowhere near finished.

I ordered these pants from Gap – in the United States. Unfortunately, the Canadian Gap stores only sell certain tall styles. Since I REALLY wanted these pants, I bit-the-bullet and ordered them from the American Gap website. After paying excessive shipping fees and border duties (annoying!), the pants finally arrived this week. While I am not thrilled that I paid nearly double the regular price, I am very happy with my purchase from a fit and style perspective. I do however wish that Canadian stores would sell more clothes in ‘tall’ sizes.
