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.

Velvet & Cable Knit

It’s hard to come by a good cable knit pullover. Depending on how you like the fit, it can seem like an endless expedition to find the right one. That being said, I have a pretty great one in the shop today. If you’re not really an over-sized pullover kind of person, this one checks off all the boxes in terms of color, fit and warmth. I also listed some pretty sweet velvety softness (makes you want to touch your own thighs all day), and an amazing 1940’s dress. When I’m wearing it I honestly feel like it takes me back to the Dust Bowl days. Pairing it with the Blixen Boots, it’s like a Dust Bowl match made in heaven. And last but NOT least…the novelty print dress. GAH! If this dress fit me, it would be going nowhere. I originally bought it for myself without trying it on (stupid). I was obsessed the second I saw it. It’s just the right amount of sweet with weirdness. Its glorious! Come check out the shop today. These items want to come home with you!
