THIS MONTH’S BEST

fel­low kyivlanka

I’ve been a de­vout ELLE Canada reader for two years, but the story about a trip to Kyiv, Ukraine [“A Kyivlanka’s Di­ary,” ELLE Travel, Novem­ber 2016], is some­thing I re­lated to on a per­sonal level. Like the writer, I left the coun­try when I was 10 years old, and vis­it­ing home was just as nos­tal­gic for me. I have to agree with the pop­u­lar­ity of vyshy­vanky [tra­di­tional em­broi­dered blouses]. It was weird to see peo­ple who aren’t of Ukrainian her­itage rock­ing this trend, but I have a new ap­pre­ci­a­tion for its re­vival. Mariya-Kvit­lana Tsap, Toronto

DAKOTA TIME

Your Novem­ber cover re­minded me of the time Dakota Fan­ning ap­peared on The Oprah Win­frey Show and gave her a scarf she’d knit­ted. I thought it was so sweet. I al­ways wished that Oprah would say that that was one of her favourite gifts! June Rittmeyer, email

SHOP­PING TIME

I re­ally en­joyed read­ing “Fash­ion For­ward with Nord­strom” [Oc­to­ber 2016] be­cause I’m thrilled that Nord­strom has fi­nally come to Toronto. I even got tick­ets to the Ea­ton Cen­tre Nord­strom grand-open­ing gala. Score! Me­lanie Bar­nett, Oshawa, Ont.
