Mounties Meet the Flag? An Exercise in "Canadian Style"
So please rest assured that this quick sketch is exactly that--and I'm posting it here because I cannot log in to Flickr (why oh why?).
It's a peek at what I wore in a recent fashion show to celebrate international culture. Witty works better than pretty for me, when I'm prowling the catwalk with my young students, so I put together this "classic Canadian" look:
white wool beret from Parkhurst (with tiny Canadian flag pin for accent);
crimson 1960s long jacket from London Fog (an eBay purchase), made of heavy twill. I like the round buckle and forgot to draw the flap patch pockets in my buckle-y enthusiasm.
J Crew Minnie black pants;
J Crew black riding boots.
I was going for a Mountie/flag hybrid, just in time for Thanksgiving.
Happy (early) Thanksgiving, Canadian peeps!
