White Out

On Saturday, I and some other Toronto bloggers were invited to Diva Girl’s 6 year Anniversary party. The event was held on the rooftop of The Spoke Club, a club I didn’t even know existed until a few days before (I am not a private club type girl), and at request, everyone was decked out in all white attire. Fortunately for me (since I don’t actually own that many all white dresses), I was given this dress from Wanderlust and necklace/clutch (featured in some photos) from Stella and Dot to wear for the duration of the event. At the end of the event, me and some other bloggers were featured in a fashion show to present some pieces by brands and designers who will be collaborating with Diva Girl in the future.

The event was pretty fun, although, if I’m being honest, not really my style. But it was nice to be invited and to meet some other bloggers I had never met before. Spending the day in the sun over looking the city I love so much was pretty awesome as well, although I did get a nasty sunburn on my shoulders, which wasn’t so nice. What a surprise, huh?! The ginger forgot sunscreen and she got burned.

Forgotten treasures

DSC_2738I am in a bit of a rut when it comes to dressing myself as of late. Owning your own shop (ps, online should be back in action in the next little while) generally means you forget to buy things for yourself (at least, for me), so after some time your closet starts to feel boring ’cause everything has been worn to death. A lot of the things I buy for the shop I would wear myself, but not all, either because of fit or it’s just not my style. So while I do get new clothes often, it never really feels like mine and I only get to wear them for a short time. I try not to become attached to something I plan to sell in the shop. All that to say, it’s nice when you go through your own closet and pull something out you haven’t worn in a loooong time, and you are able to look at it with fresh eyes. This trench and these sunglasses are a good example of that. I’ve had bangs since I was 14 yrs old, but I did go through a phase – I think when I started this blog actually – where I was growing them out. I bought these sunglasses around that time. I’ve shared them on the blog a few summers back, but when I saw the images, I hated the way they looked. However, wearing them while I have bangs, I kind of love. They now look right to me, and I’m sure they will get a lot of use this summer. The trench I’ve had for I can’t even remember how many years. I wore it to death when I first got it, and then grew tired of it. Yesterday was the perfect weather for a light jacket, and it caught my eye while I was choosing a coat for the day. I put it on and it just made sense to me. I now rememver why I held onto it for so many years. These are the reasons I will forever be a hoarder of clothing. I hate the idea of getting rid of something and then wishing you had never done so a few months, or even years down the road.
