Framed, For The Weekend

Over the past weekend we lended a hand to one of our elder neighbours to setup their internet and new television. So, I decided to prepare a few goodies on our side after lunch. I bonded with their granddaughter as we spoke about our favourite foods and new recipes that we wanted to try for the season.

We took a moment to rest, and enjoy teatime and have coffee. Sometimes, it's easy to take the simple knowledge that we have of (doing day-to-day tasks with) technology for granted. Months ago, I recently met a woman who still has no e-mail address! Don't ask me how, even in this day that it's possible, especially if you do any type of professional business, but apparently it is!
Of course, with all of this generational gap banter, I took the opportunity to take a quick snapshot of my new sunglasses before reconvening with pimping up my neighbour's new flat-screen.

These sunglasses are my first from Firmoo. I loved the classic frame style and thought it suited my face shape best. You can expect me to wear these frames more, because they go with just about everything in my wardrobe. My apologies for the partial shots, as the photographer was not on his A game, but it's alright!

I was excited that I was able to don one of my new favourite vintage scarves that was once my aunt's when she was a teen. I'll likely be wearing this scarf often throughout the year. It also has a lovely floral print along with gold, navy, and pink hues that make it versatile to wear with any of my outfits.

The goods: Sunglasses-c/o Firmoo, Tee-H&M, Tank-F21, Denim-Topshop, Scarf-Vintage, Boots-Anne Michelle




Here's a preview of a leather bag that I handmade a few days ago, which I may be adding bottom studs and details soon. There are other bags in the works and a couple already finished, but I will probably upload them to Instagram or Facebook since it has already been quite a busy season.

  4. You made me laugh. How come she doesn't have an email address haha. Have you ever seen The It Crowd? I love this series. One of the guys ask someone: Sorry are you from the past? Maybe she is from the past too! The sunnies looks amazing on you and your new bag too. Wish you a wonderful Sunday Madison!!

  17. You look chic, as usual. My brother-in-law owns a small business (selling sports memorabilia) and he not only doesn't have Internet, he refuses to use a computer. He does everything by hand (inventory, sales, etc.) and telephone. He's in his fifties and vows to never adopt any technology.

  23. Madison, that was awesome of you to help them. More people need to do that. They need to give of their time and knowledge on things. So many elderly and young people need our help. Sometimes, they're just looking for someone to talk to. Wow! No email address. I can't blame her, sometimes I wish I could get rid of mine. HAHAHA But that would mean communicating by phone or snail mail :P Oh well. To each their own. Well you look great! Love your frames. I like the style of them and great outfit girlfriend. I love these pics. Very relaxed. I feel like I'm sitting across the table from you having a conversation. Have a great week doll.

    P.S. By the way, my hairdresser was one of those people who never used the web or had an email address... It does feel odd to me, though, I am practically an addict myself. :D

  32. Dressed with soul14 October, 2013

    Liebe Madison, Deine neue Sonnenbrille ist toll und mir gefällt es sehr gut, dass Du das Tuch Deiner Tante als Turban auf dem Kopf trägst. Du siehst wunderschön damit aus und auch Dein Outfit ist toll. Hier in Bayern gibt es viele Menschen, die noch keine E-Mail-Adresse haben. Meine Eltern haben auch keine ... Es fällt mir auch schwer, das zu glauben.

    Ich wünsche Dir eine schöne und glückliche Woche!

  56. Whoa, you made that bag! I'm super impressed. The best thing I've ever sewn was my underwear to my skirt when I was trying to take it in. Ah, memories. Props to you, lovely lady!


    Hehee, that's amazing when people don't have e-mails or lack Facebooks and stuff like that. I admire people like that, I really do.


    You look super cute, and I adore those glasses on you. Free glasses, aw yiss!
