Dollhouse Heat Black Buckled Pointed Toe Booties

Dollhouse Heat Black Buckled Pointed Toe Booties

Dress, Aidan Mattox (Holt Renfrew). Coat, Guess. Boots, Dollhouse (Lulus) here. Purse, Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Picked up this pretty lace number from Holt's the other day and at the same time discovering designer Aidan Mattox. While on the search to find thee perfect cocktails dress; elegantly crafted lace, sophistication, and a pretty feminine cut with just enough pouf presented itself to me on a hanger. The layer of lace sits beautifully over neutral fabric and tulle layers that gives this piece that exact elegant and Victorian/Vintage feel I had been after. Chic and glamorous cocktail/party dresses; check out the Fall 2014 lineup.

Jacket, Danier. Shirt, Lulus (here). Skirt, American Eagle. Purse, Marc Jacobs. Boots, Aldo. Sunnies, Ray Ban.

Felt like mixing prints and textures; the end result was plaid over embroidered lace with a hint of neutrals to tie everything together. Was actually surprised at how well this combo worked out. What are some of your favourite prints and textures to mix?

Purple Rain

Coat, French Connection. Pants, Zara. Scarf, Garage. Gloves, Winners. Bag, KGB Co. Boots, Aldo.

When in a desperate need to look decent without putting in too much effort, go for a bold statement jacket. What I love about this French Connection coat (besides its bold magenta hue) are the exaggerated sleeves and puff collar, which doubles as a hood storage compartment in the event that you get rained on.

Thanks for dropping by

Sweater Dress

Sweater dress, belt, H&M. Lace cami, Smart Set. Sneakers, Converse. Choker, bebe.

This sweater dress is mostly used for lounging around the house with knee high socks, although the odd time it does make its way out the door. I love its versatility; it can be worn with over the knee boots for fancier outings, or simply with sneakers if you feel like stopping off at your local pond before heading out to the pub for dinner like we did. Sweater dress = Fall staple. What are some key pieces for Fall you can't live without?

White Vest

Top, H&M. Vest, bebe. Jeans, Zara. Boots, Dollhouse (here). Purse, Marc Jacobs.

The inspiration for my outfit came from Isabel Marant's Fall/Winter 2014 runway lineup. I've had this vest for quite some but it tends to get neglected even though it is a great layering piece. Not sure why I never thought to wear it belted until now.
