Feeling a Bit Silly


Dress: Martin and Osa
Cardigan: Tommy Hilfiger
Shoes: Naturalizer

This dress makes me lonesome for good old Martin and Osa.

When Gap/Old Navy/Banana Republic announced that they would offer Canadian online shopping, I was so excited. Finally, a replacement for my old stand-by, M&O. Due to their high shipping and duty costs, J Crew was not in the running. I like that the Gap group has free shipping on orders over $50 and no duty!

I placed my first Old Navy/Gap order on September 20. But it just shipped today! I don't even remember what I ordered and I predict it will be another 1-2 weeks before it gets here. That's no good for me; I need instant gratification here folks!

Will there ever be a great clothing website that will help me get my online shopping fix in an affordable, no-tax, fast manner? Stay tuned for developments in this story . . .


  1. I thought they were suppose to be fast and furious? Did you see the shoes Banana now carries in Canada though?

    On a more positive note, I love your cardigan!

  2. 20 York, I will check those shoes out for sure!

    Jules, me too. I'm so glad that I have a huge amount of M&O that I will not doubt wear for years.

    Thanks Rose.

  3. Sorry to hear about your shipping woes...didn't realize what a pain online shopping from Canada can be.

    Love the cardi today - great black and white look!

  4. Thanks eek. I like to be really melodramatic about things sometimes. :-)

  5. I'm really enjoying the view of the woods off your deck. Very pretty!

  6. I've heard this service works well, but I don't know if the cost would be worth it...
