Outfit: Vivienne

Larkspur Vintage | Outfit: VivienneLarkspur Vintage | Outfit: VivienneI feel like a broken record apologizing for my absence from this space the last few weeks, but with everything going on I’ve decided to cut myself some slack and update when I can and just be fine with that – life will find some form of normalcy in due time.

The weather has cooled down quite a fair bit here in Toronto, so breaking out velvet in the form of the Vivienne dress  by ACT THREE. (which you can find in store and online at Victoire) did not feel too premature on this particular day. Velvet and lace are such a rich and romantic combination, unlikely to ever go wrong when paired together, and sure to make for the perfect cool weather outfit.

Outfit: Other People’s Clothes

Larkspur Vintage | Outfit: Other People's ClothesLarkspur Vintage | Outfit: Other People's ClothesSince I haven’t really been living at home lately (see this post if you don’t understand), I don’t have many of my own clothes to style outfits with. It’s been a whole lot of wearing the same few articles of clothing I have with me or borrowing Meaghan’s clothes (thnx Meg!) because I have been staying at her place while she is visiting our pal Kira in Chicago. With that being the case, this outfit feels very out of the norm for me. It consists of Meaghan’s hat and boots which I think are really great, but pretty unusual for me. The whole thing is a bit western, or like something you could wear hiking (if you don’t mind hiking in a dress), which I like, but again, not my usual cutesy, un-utilitarian styling I normally throw together. I will say, however, it was nice to give the Cybille dress by ACT THREE Apparel a different spin. You guys might remember I styled their first lookbook (and second, but you can’t see that yet!), which was very 60s french new wave, Anna Karina vibes. This seems totally different from that, and I was pretty happy to be able to share a different way to style one of Sarah’s amazing dresses (which you can now find online/in store at Victoire and this particular dress in store at Coal Miner’s Daughter). Please do check out her dresses; I feel so lucky to be able to work closely with such an amazing label.
