January 27, 2011

sweater: Lavish&Squalor, jeans: James Jeans, shoes: Jeffery Campbell, pashmina: unknown, silk scarf: denj + etsy


Just a quick one today! How to style a silk scarf #1

A great way to winterize a light scarf is to wear it mixed with another thicker scarf: it adds volume and keeps you cozy!

hat: H&M, jeans: James Jeans, boots: Locale, plaid shirt: Zara, necklace: LAURENELAN *photography by rsimmen


Fact: I am obsessed with this hat, the best sunday afternoons are spent reading magazines down a random aisle at chapters, and sparkles and pearls go with everything.

Have you SEEN this gorgeous girl yet? I love Cee of Coco and Vera‘s parisienne chic style, especially when complimented by a Denj + LaurenElan bracelet! If you haven’t seen her wonderful blog yet, you need to; especially because she’s about take off for Paris and become a true Parisienne for a few weeks. Jealous? I think so.

shopped: 69 vintage

January 24, 2011

I just got back from a trip to 69 Vintage on Queen Street with Leah of Little Red Purse! The store is filled with amazing finds, all perfectly selected and curated by owner Kealan Sullivan. Its so easy to fall in love with vintage pieces when you don’t have to dig through piles of junk to find the good stuff. The whole store IS the good stuff. After trying on a few sequinned tops (ALL of which I wanted!) and a perfect knitted cape complete with baubles as buttons, I settled on an amazing fur collar. (You will be seeing it in upcoming posts very soon!) If you are lucky enough to live in, or around Toronto, you need to visit!

PS. Sorry my photos aren’t up to their usual quality today. My  usual lens is getting a repair so I was using my lensbaby lens instead. It’s not really best for indoor photography, so they kind of ended up with vintage look, which I guess is actually very appropriate!

outfit du jour: snow safari

January 22, 2011

boots: Locale, dress: Zara, cardigan: Aritzia, belt: French Connection, hat: H&M. *Photography by RSimmen

My obsession with all things cheetah is getting worse. I added a blouse and this dress to my collection this week (don’t tell my mom! haha) I can’t wait to wear this in the spring – or at least not in the midst of a snowstorm! I’ve definitely noticed a few changes in my style lately , for years I absolutely hated everything brown and never wore any of it, but lately I’ve been drawn to it – even went so far as to pair it with black!

Happy Weekend!
