Return to the Market

I truly missed the Ottawa market while I was abroad. I love the hustle and bustle, the lines of local produce stands, and the collection of unique restaurants and stores, especially the Italian Bottega. I had to pop in to the Bottega today for one of their scrumptious club sandwiches, salads, and cappuccinos. The perfect summer lunch. I then made my way to the Hudson Bay Company, who was having a HUGE sale. I lucked out and found a wonderful RL dress on sale:

I love the structure, especially the pockets. I will be very sad when dress and skirt pockets go out of style. I find them so useful.

After dinner I went to see Angels and Demons. I read the book years ago, so I can't really compare it to the original storyline, but I found the movie to be a notch about mediocre. Even my father, who had never read the book, said that everything was too obvious and overly-dramatic. However, I did see a preview for the new Julie & Julia film, which looks like it could be interesting. I love Meryl Streep. She's such a wonderful actress, and I never leave the theatre guilty for spending $11 for one of her films. Although honestly, I'm just happy to be able to watch movies in English again instead of in Polish.


  1. Hello new blogger...and I'm so happy to be your first follower on my "first month of blogging" anniversary. You will find so many readers to be so friendly, kind ...and really funny! Enjoy this and have fun as I am and only wish I started this years ago!

  2. Pockets will never go out of style. Designers know we need them ;-).

    I loved the book Angels and Demons. I don't think the movie even comes close from what I've heard. I probably won't see it.

  3. Just wanted to stop by and say hi! Just found your blog- love it already!

    This dress is SO cute- I love the pockets as well! Hope you are having a great weekend :) XOXO
