Ah ShoeMint. They make shoes I truly cannot resist. Meet Lorena, one of this month’s selections. Including shipping, my bill came to just shy of $100 CA ($79.98 in the US with free US shipping). Also available in Blush with black trim, Lorena is made from suede and has a 5″ heel with 1″ platform (ruh roh). There is a zipper up the back and lace-up front. I see this well-styled with some of my vintage flavoured dresses.
A bear pulled a corpse from a car near Kamloops, BC. He had a snack and then buried it, as black bears do. A hunter discovered the body and contacted the RCMP. In the meantime, the bear moved the body and buried it at a new location just to keep everyone awake. The RCMP found drugs and alcohol within the vehicle, and they believe the man was dead before the bear hauled him out of the car. Apparently it’s going to be one of those years wildlife-wise.
While the photo is underwhelming for me, the dress luckily stands out for me. Summer hasn’t started here yet and I’m desperate for some heat on my skin. This one reminded me of hot muggy days in the office, it seems so far away I keep reaching for fashion and shoes that are heat-friendly. The Ric Rac Dress in Clay is on Pinup Girl for $92 US in sizes Extra-Small to Extra-Large. Shipping is a whopping and unreasonable $39.92 US to Canada. I hope it’s cheaper for American shoppers.
Yesterday day I posted a news story in its early stages. The emerging story is disturbing and graphic. For those who are curious about the developing gong show and have a strong stomach, here’s a MSN news story reposted from The Canadian Press. I’m not going there blog-wise and I’m dropping this story at this point.
Yikes. An unfortunate receptionist opened up a blood soaked box (should’ve been her first clue) and found a severed foot. This receptionist works at the Conservative Party Headquarters in Ottawa, blocks from Parliament Hill. Security is evidently a bit lacking, perhaps because of a sense of security. Definitely not something I hear of every day.
I love these. They remind me of a lower heeled style that I wore in the 1980’s as a child. The shoes made me feel so pretty and grown-up. I’m having a lot of trouble resisting these. $68.99 US on ModCloth.
Seriously. A man was feeding over two dozen black bears to protect and guard his marijuana grow operation. He treated them like friendly pets and fed them over $200 a week in dog food. When the next summer after his arrest had ended, 17 bears in the Christina Lake area had to be destroyed due to aggressive and familiar behaviour. It’s not really known for sure how many of these bears are the pot bears, B.C. conservation officers suspect many of them were. Bears protecting pot… only in BC.
