Shelling Out For Shellfish

Blouse, Banana Republic. Skirt, Club Monaco. Necklace, Topshop. Sandals, Geox.

When I saw these photos, I felt a twinge of anger. Anger that I'd put in the effort to catch decent daylight and risked being seen by strangers whilst posing (the horror!) when I look like I've been Photoshopped into this backdrop. I was really there, I promise! Strolling through tree-lined and named-after-trees streets in Kits, checking out one menu after another, and waiting to pounce on recently vacated tables on patios...  We eventually pounced on neighborhood favorite Abigail's Party, where I nibbled on deep-fried pickles with paprika aioli ($4) and Gallo mussels & Littleneck clams steamed in coconut & chili broth, vine tomatoes and cilantro ($15). To check out the rest of their dinner menu, click here. And then book your ticket to Vancouver, of course!

Hahaha, omg, I wasn't thinking you were Photoshopped in until you said it! Maybe that's something I should try since that's how some pictures end up turning out anyway...Love you skirt!
