Outfit: Mucha Feelings

Larkspur Vintage | Outfit: Mucha FeelingsLarkspur Vintage | Outfit: Mucha FeelingsIf you follow me on instagram, then you probably know I’ve been pretty sick recently, which sort of explains the radio silence around here – it’s been a whole lot of pyjamas and no makeup (and re-watching Grey’s Anatomy forever and always, amen.) around these parts . However, a truly exceptional dress by a favourite designer has a way of making you feel way less sick…or in my case, just look less sick. I don’t own many dresses that give me a very specific feeling, but this one makes me feel like I just stepped out of a Pre-Raphaelite painting, which is a much better feeling to have than the clogged ears, irritated eyes, stuffy nose feelings I am currently existing with. Another great feeling (today is all about feelings, ok!) is being able to offer $50 off this gem of a dress with the code larkspurholidays. Every holiday season Nina offers some awesome discounts on many of her designs, which is a great way to get some of her off-season products you’ve had your eye on at a much reduced price. Happy Holidays, friends.

Three Little Waves (Giveaway!)

photo 1 (15)After editing these photos, I’m now totally seeing what all the fuss was about with that black and blue (or white and gold, whatever) dress “issue”. Black, what a chameleon! Depending on where I was standing and where the sun hit my dress, this totally – and I mean completely – black dress from Three Little Waves looked golden and at other times almost completely blue. Anyways, all that aside, I love this dress, as I love all things I have received from Ellen of Three Little Waves. If you can believe it, before this dress, I didn’t really own a simple black dress. I have a tendency to overlook anything black when I’m in a store – it all just kind of blends together in a heap of boringness – but when I saw this dress, I knew it was just the right amount of simple with some fun detailing that it would end up being that LBD I didn’t know I wanted until I came across it.

Looking to find your very own LBD? Or maybe something more fun?! You’re in luck! Today Three Little Waves and myself are hosting a giveaway over on my instagram. Head over there if you would like to enter to win yourself any item of your choosing from Ellen’s shop. Don’t have an instagram? that’s okay my friend. You can head to Three Little Waves etsy shop and leave a comment below letting me know your favourite item (with your email contact) to receive an entry.

*giveaway runs until Sunday, May 10th. I’ll contact the winner privately through email if you enter here, or DM on instagram.

Holly Jolly

DSC_1753I thought since Christmas is right around the corner I’d put together a little holiday-inspired outfit. I feel like Mrs. Claus or a little elf, which is fun and fitting for the season. I likely won’t be wearing this outfit for the holidays, though. I don’t normally wear something that feels over the top Christmasy (red and white is just so obvious). Last year I had a lovely white chiffon dress and the year before it was a velvet emerald green shift dress. I’ve got, I think, the most perfect dress for the holidays this year, although I’ve had this dress since last February so I’ve become a little less enamored by it. I’ve got some Christmas shopping to do this evening, so I’m sure you’ll find me in one of my favorite vintage shops in between present-buying to see if I can find something I love. Vintage shops are the best place to find holiday dresses…you never know what you will come across and it’s usually bloody amazing.

Tie Your Scarf On Tight

DSC_0762I almost forgot about these pictures, or rather, I wasn’t actually planning on ever sharing them. For whatever reason, I didn’t much like most of the ones we took, which happens from time to time. But here we are. Ryan snapped a couple shots of me while we were on our way to Thanksgiving dinner, bundled up in our coats and scarves. I always get excited on the first day of the season when I get to wear a scarf. I have a lot of scarves, although, only the same few get the most wear. But I’m sort of a scarf fiend.  If I enter a thrift store with the intention of finding a new scarf, I usually come away with a few (they are only like $2, can you blame me!?) I used to be like this with bags/purses. Surprising right? How often do we see me with a bag/purse on this blog?! Almost never. I still own quite a few bags (some really nice ones, might I add), but I tend to only use 1 or 2 purses on a regular basis nowadays, so I often discard my bag for photographs. This is something I would like to change. I used to be able to find a bag I liked in most stores I frequented, but I don’t much care for the purses I find now. I prefer vintage purses, but they tend to be on the small side, and for me, I cram a lot of things into my purse, so a large purse is necessary on most days. I’ve been searching and searching for a large tapestry bag for quite awhile now, but to no avail. In the meantime I have bought some smaller ones, that I adore, but they don’t get nearly as much use as this faux-leather tote bag, which is a shame because I think a tapestry bag adorned with kitties is far more interesting than a plain black tote bag.

Marco Polo

DSC_0531I must admit, I am wholeheartedly excited about dressing for Fall right now. It’s really so fun to unearth pieces you have had hidden away in your closet for months (or buying new pieces, teehee). It has given me the breath of fresh air that I so desperately needed. Now, this pinafore, oh this pinafore! How do I love thee, let me count the ways. It has horses/polo players on it and is made from re-purposed vintage Ralph Lauren fabric. Cool right!? I wanted this pinafore from TLO when it came out last season, but someone snatched it up before me online. I’ll save the long story of how it came to be mine, but Casie, who was the original owner of this gem, gave it to me (we got to know eachother through instagram, and just so happen to both live in Toronto). The clothing gods shined down on me that day (or more like the angel Casie, thanks Casie! you doll!) I’m pretty excited to style this baby. I opted for a print on print look this time around. I swear to you, when people say you should buy basics to go with everything in your closet, ie. neutral colours, plain… they didn’t know what they were talking about. This thrifted Joe Fresh button up has been a god send to me, and a real wardrobe staple. It goes with so many things in my Fall/Winter wardrobe, it is silly. Anyways, this outfit feels like me. I love pattern mixing, which I barely did any of during the Summer, for whatever reason. I’m excited about this weather change right now…but I’m sure that feeling won’t last long.
