Sochi 2014: the good, the bad and well the just plain ugly

The winter chaos of 2014 has really hit us poor bloggers. Despite the winter blues, the  Winter Olympics have really brightened days and well maybe given us an excuse to sit bad and veg. It’s the one time every four years where we can cheer for the same team–Canada.  Day one of the Games sparked an interest for us fashion lovers from Halifax.

The Opening Ceremonies have always been an exciting moment, as the Olympics showcases 88 winter looks.

The Good:

Canadian HBC swag:

Our only beef with our 2014 attire is how much it resembled Vancouver 2010. Check out the 2014 Team Canada Collection, now available at Hudson’s Bay.

My absolute favorite piece, as seen by the Canadian Olympians is the infamous starlet red Wool Duffle Coat.

Dufour Lapointe Sisters:

The three Canadian Dufour Lapointe sisters: Chloe, Justine and Maxime. How could one family produce that much beauty? Jealously in inevitable with these talented sisters. Loving the locks as well.

The Bad and Ugly:

Team USA’s Olympic Collection:

The worst part is that there are so many better looks from the Raulph Lauren’s USA Olympic Collection.

Our overall favorite moment thus far…
