ANNIE GET YOUR GUN AND DON'T FORGET TO WEAR YOUR TUQUE...IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!











ALL OLD CANADIANS KNOW THAT WHEN THE COLD ARTIC AIR FUNNELS IN, IT IS TIME TO BREAK OUT THE TUQUES! WITH TEMPERATURES BELOW ZERO HERE IN BOSTON, THE FASHION FORWARD FASHIONISTAS ARE WEARING THEIR FABULOUS TUQUES TO STAY WARM AND LOOK WINTER CHIC!
THE DEFINITION OF TUQUE IS "A CLOSE FITTED HAT OFTEN WITH A TASSEL OR POMPOM FROM THE CANADIAN FRENCH
'! I HAVE POSTED PICS OF CELEBS WEARING THEIR TUQUES AND AS A SPECIAL TREAT, I HAVE POSTED PICS OF SOME OLD , GREAT CANADIANS WEARING THEIR TUQUES UP IN MONTREAL WHERE THEY STARTED! THERE ISN'T A BETTER SITE SEEING GUYS LIKE HOCKY GREATS, JEAN BELIVEAU AND HENRY THE " ROCKET" RICHARD WEARING THEIR CANADIAN TUQUES WITH PRIDE......SOME OF THE GREATEST TO EVER PLAY THE GAME OF HOCKEY!! TO ME THEY HAVE SUCH GREAT FASHION SENSE AND SURE KNOW HOW TO STAY WARM APRES HOCKEY!! MANY DESIGNERS HAVE JUMPED ON BOARD WITH THEIR FASHIONABLE TUQUES!
BUNDLE UP LIKE THE GREATS AND DON'T FORGET YOUR TUQUE!

  4. Patty, My mom's family is from Canada and so I always referred to knit hats as tuques but no one knew what I was talking about. I brought my kids up calling them tuques, too. Loved your blog!
