H&M Shirt, DIY Jean skirt, OTK boots, Thrifted Beanie, Assorted rings & bracelets

Bleh. Life is hectic lately, with work and birthdays. Ended up wearing something completely different on VDay. I've bought a few more items since my last post. I'm away from my cam for the week, but I will post some pics of them soon. This one is a couple weeks old. The shirt was such a great H&M find. You can do a lot with it. And I love that it's super long in the back. Anyways, night for now!

Date Night

DLR babydoll dress, Wilfred pencil skirt, OTK socks, vintage red velvet purse, B initial necklace, oversized Victorian ring

I guess I'm a planner. Pretty sure this is going to be my VDay outfit. What do you think? You can't really see but there's some clev in there as well. And I'll probably pair it with some black heels and a red lip.

Kind of early still to be planning, I know, but I tend to figure out my outfits ahead of time when I'm excited about something. I always know my birthday outfit like two weeks in advance, haha! No actual plans yet though. We usually figure that stuff out last minute, which doesn't really work in our favour during these silly holidays. We will prob end up eating dinner in the city at our fav restaurant. I've got some good ideas for the bf's gift though. What do you have planned???


Two Looks, One Gangsta Chain

DLR oversized tee, vintage military vest, gangsta chain, my favourite OTK boots

faux ray bans, vintage blazer, gangsta chain, zippered OTK boots


Let's Not Let Our Hearts Get In The Way

sequin shoulder detail dress, pleather wrap belt, Aldo oxford wedge

Wow. Three posts in and I get lazy with updates. Couldn't really figure out the programs for the new cam I've been using though. Better pics though, eh? Love this new dress I bought. Embroidered sequin shoulder details. Loves it! I also love this belt, too. It's super long so you have to wrap it around you three or four times before it fits, but gives a cool effect.

Went thrifting quite a bunch the past week and picked up some good finds. Nothing from the list, of course. I got a quilted red velvet purse, a military inspired vest, not one but two ponchos (for some reason..) and a very warm winter hat. The hat is actually pretty practical since the buttons on my winter coat decided to abandon ship last week. So I've been wearing my leather coat. the middle of a Canadian winter. ....awesome.

The bf and I went to the Beta Shoe museum on the weekend. It was actually pretty interesting. Shoes from every period in history. The Chopine shoes were the most fascinating. They are these incredibly tall (sometimes 16 inches!) platform shoes women wore in 16/17th century. Amazing what we do to be elegant and beautiful.
