Wish You Were Here: Montreal

Howdy, pardners.  I was just away for a week (girls' trip to Montreal) so it's been quiet here, but I will have a Wartime Wardrobe Challenge update soon.  I know when I see other people post their vacation pictures from NYC, I'm always like, "Seriously, you're posting a picture of 5th Ave?  The Empire State Building that I see on my way to the subway every $%@ night?  SoHo?  Boooring."  Less so because I'm a jerk and more so because I am so desensitized to living in NY for a decade so I'm hoping some Montreal-dweller has the same reaction to the pictures below.  "Seriously?  SVP on a sign is so novel and fancy-sounding to you?"  Yes, it totally is, you jaded jerk.

I hope you enjoyed that assortment of buildings, street poles, signage and raw food from vegan restaurant Crudessence (really).  We did check out a number of re-sale/vintage places but the vintage gods weren't on my side.  (Although the cat gods were; an orange kitty greeted us at Empire Exchange.)  I spent all my loonies and toonies at Drawn & Quarterly on graphic novelsAnd to keep this about sustainable fashion:  I wore the same jeans and shirts almost every day, with the same pair of black Sauconys and my Vaute Couture Emily coatRe-wear, don't care.
