Sorry for the long absence friends and readers 🙂
But November has been a busy, busy month filled with fun.
Let me catch you up with What I Did and What I Wore for various happenings this past month…
THE VINTAGE SPECTACULAR
What do you call a night where the amazing GTA Swing Band pair up with the vocal talents of Mim Adams and Lindy Hop Revolution Dance Studio?
It’s called: The Vintage Spectacular!
And what a spectacular night it was… with a gorgeous venue – The Great Hall on WQW!
It was the night I finally got to wear this adorable Russian nesting-dolls dress and fuzzy peach bolero I picked up at Tatyana’s crazy up to 90% off sale!!!
And danced my feet off!!!
Viva la Lindy Hop Swing Dancing!!! Not sure what that is? Click here to find out more 🙂
I’m embarrassed to say that this was the first year I’ve ever attended Remembrance Day Ceremonies as an adult.
Since I had the day off, I made my way to Old City Hall in Toronto and pinned my poppy to the wreath at the memorial there.
Got to see the fly-by of vintage World War II planes in ‘missing man formation’, and hear Mayor John Tory’s speech.
It was quite a moving experience to be apart of. For more pictures, check out my Instagram channel and follow me.
With the end of the month here, I usually post a new recipe that I’ve tried out myself, for the blog.
Have you noticed that I haven’t been keeping up with this since around August/September?
Well, that is because I’ve been cooking up a storm with Chef’s Plate! Here’s what I’ve made this past month:
This fantastic service has helped introduce me to so many new veggies and dishes…and has given me new confidence in the kitchen.

1940’s @ GOORIN’S HAT SHOP
The Toronto Lindy Hop Community were invited to an exclusive shopping event at Goorin Bross on WQW – these fabulous hat makers were raffling off 3 gorgeous hats.
I was crushing on this one like crazy!!!
With Xmas nearby… I couldn’t justify dropping big money on any of the beautiful hats I tried on that night.
But I did come home with an Xmas gift certificate present and feathers for a hat I picked up at the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show last year.
Which meant, I was entered into the draw. And guess who won….
Turns out in all my excitement to get this winning hat on my head for photos …. I was wearing this beauty of a 1940s propeller hat BACKWARDS.
SWING OUT TO VICTORY
And last, but certainly not least….. was the fabulous dinner dance in Hamilton called: Swing Out To Victory!!!
Last year… was my first year attending this fab event. And I ended up winning 2nd place for the BEST VINTAGE OUTFIT Contest!!!

So naturally, this year outfit planning started early…
I had picked up this nautical wiggle dress from Tatyana LAST year and have been dying to unveil it all year-long.
Dancing among the planes, to a live BIG BAND, with men in uniforms….
Um, YES PLEASE!!!
Deets on my outfit and outer wear…
