Colourful Chills



Shirt, Mendocino. Cardigan, Forever 21. Pants, Zara. Jacket, Winners. Purse, Nine West. Necklace, Ralph Lauren. 
Sunnies, Celine. Jade Bardot ring, Samantha Wills.

If I were to tell you that it was -30°C/-22°F on the afternoon that we took these pictures, would you believe me? My boyfriend picked me up from work and since we didn't want this outfit to go to waste we attempted taking a few photos. I cannot tell you how cold it was! Especially with gusts of bone chilling wind. We took a few shots as quickly as possible, in between my chattering teeth. In all honestly, I wasn't going to publish these photos, because they were a write off to me. (Maybe I was just discriminating against them because of the suffering associated with them). Nevertheless, I decided to publish them in the end to make all of that suffering somewhat worth it. I am SO over winter.

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday! xo

Victoria's Dress

With flowers and leaves about to bloom, the feel of Spring just around the corner, one can’t help but think of Prom and other formal events that follow as the seasons progress. Which in turn stirs thoughts of delicate cuts of lace, beautifully detailed beading, layers of chiffon, and elegantly crafted plunging necklines. Memorable moments waiting to be created require that perfect dress, and if you have a formal event coming up then I would urge you to visit Victoria's Dress to check out some of their stunning pieces. Victoria’s Dress is an online shop that offers a wide selection of dresses for all occasions including wedding dresses, prom dresses, evening dresses, cocktail dresses, and even ball gowns!  

The feminine silhouettes of their dresses come alive with flowing chiffon covered in beautiful bead work, and for the more glamorous; pieces with intricate lace applique and just enough jewels to make you feel like a princess on your special day.  It’s pieces like this that will make their way into your most cherished memories and events. Here are some of my favourite dresses that I would love to twirl around in, that also capture the essence of their 2015 line.

Red Tartan




Jacket, Guess. Sweater, H&M. Scarf & Beanie, Zara. Jeans, Karl Lagerfeld. Boots, Aldo. Bag, Gucci.

Back to abusing the Zara blanket scarf. It's been a while since I've stuck to one item so much, but not only is this scarf super versatile for creating different looks, but it is just too easy to wrap myself in it when stepping out into the freezing cold.

White Lace with Red Plaids



 

Scarf, Zara. Shirt, Forever 21. Skirt, Hollister. Jacket, Tahari. Boots, Aldo. Sunnies, Ray Ban.

I've had enough of snow and blizzards dictating outfit choices so I decided I wasn't going to let winter stop me from wearing what I wanted for Sushi last weekend. Especially since scoring this long Tahari down filled duvet...I mean jacket; there really should be no excuses. I compromised by wearing over the knee boots instead of booties, and purposely chose a white lace skirt to play up on the fresh snowfall. And yes, I clashed red plaids on purpose.

Happy Friday the 13th!! Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead! xo
