Whose Hose Is This?

Dress, Talbots. Scarf, H&M. Flats, Geox.

In the past few months, Winners outlets in the Vancouver area have been treasure troves of Talbots apparel. This is quite unusual, since the only Talbots store in Canada (that I know of) is in Toronto. The selection is limited in terms of styles and sizes, which is why I snagged this LBD in a Petite 8. I am neither petite, nor an 8, but lo and behold, this knit fits! Dressing has never been easier. What wasn't so easy? Posing with the blue hose in a ladylike manner (the term Slutty Audrey comes to mind).

I was hoping for some sort of game involving pictures of little old ladies and different brands of panty hose.

I was hoping for a firefighter standing by..lol The blue hose really brings out the blue in your scarf. :)

Very cute outfit and I really like Talbots clothing and I'm happy they make items for people under 50 now! Hooray! Beautiful! :)

A LBD is such a staple and this one is lovely! I am especially liking all of the details (including that wonderful little scarf). Beautiful! xx

That's the perfect example of why people should try things on and not go by size! You look amazing! I really love that scarf, I need more scarves.

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

LOL - I think you look VERY ladylike! I need to put Winners on my list of places to go when I visit Canada! What a great find! I love the addition of the scarf too.

Nice use of props...it matches your scarf perfectly! Your posts are always fun and I really like the dress. Debbie http://thriftygirlvintage.blogspot.com

Talbots stuff at thrift stores is gold because of one reason - the older ladies know how to treat their cardigans.

As a former surburban resident of North Vancouver, I know that there IS one Talbots store in West Vancouver (in Park Royal) for sure! So I'm sure that's where the Winners supply comes from :)
