What The Hem

Jacket: F21
Wrap Dress: Thrifted
Bracelets: Thrifted & Dollarama & F21
Calvin Klein Heels: Town Shoes
Necklace: Le Chateau

I found this dress a while ago, it just took me a while to get around to ironing it. Who wants to iron after a scorching hot day, when your house is hot enough? Can you see the strange hem on this dress? It's a hankerchief style hem with the points pulled up and sewn back around onto the hem. It makes it interesting to say the least...

I have been very bad and not doing any sewing lately, I get home and it just doesn't happen. I'm going through a rut perhaps? I have a few projects on the go, so I really should get back to work and finish them!

I was thinking the other day about my Fall Wardrobe Challenge from last year and that I would like to do something along those lines again. No idea what the projects will be as of yet, but I'm sure I may go overboard yet again.

Aren't the colours on this dress amazing?

Jacket: Gift
Dress: H&M
Calvin Klein Shoes: Town Shoes
Necklace: Thrifted
Ring: Winners
Sunnies: Aldo

For some reason I didn't get a photo of this tank dress without the jacket, next time! I love all the colors in the dress, and adding the lace jacket was a fun option along with these chunky heels I recently purchased. I zipped around in this shoes all day without a problem, which as we all know is not always the case. I think they're a new favourite!

Are you watching the Olympics and cheering on your country? I've watched a fair bit the past couple days, and it never ceases to amaze me the talent that people possess!

Beautiful Blue

Jacket: The Gap
Top: Jacob
Silk Pants: Self made
Sandals: Aldo
Necklace: Thrifted
Ring: Winners
Bracelet: Ten Thousand Villages

These pants are a dream to wear, they're like pj's but a little more fitted so I can wear them out without looking sloppy!

Isn't this Alberta blue sky amazing?

Have a great weekend.

Keeping Cool

How did my necklace get under my top?

Hat: HMB
Top: H&M
Belt: Thrifted
Vest: H&M
Necklace: F21
Skirt: Joe Fresh
Wedge Heels: Nine West
Ring Made by Natasha
Sunnies: Aldo

So with all these pale colours I'm wearing you can definitely tell there's a hint of a tan there right? The funniest part is that the beau has looked at me a few times and said how tanned I'm looking,  compared to matching the pale walls of my surroundings I guess thats something! Plus the lovely warm days we've been having here and all the breaks I've been enjoying outside....

I ate some peas from my garden Friday to see how they were coming and they were delicious!

The Non-Existant Tan

Sunnies: Aldo
Dress: Winners
Necklace: Mexico shop
Belt: Winners
Boots: ?

I really do have a lovely tan coming in, unfortunately I'm impatient in my photo taking and the sun is so bright here I am glowing like a light bulb!

On a happier note, here's my garden plot, everything is growing like crazy and I've just harvested some broccoli, carrots, and lettuce.

Have a great weekend!

Practice Makes Perfect

Blouse: Thrifted
Pants: RW & Co
Heels: Nine West
Bracelets: F21 & Ten Thousand Villages
BCBG Necklace: Thrifted
Headband: Gift

This was my first time using my airbrush make up kit before work, meaning I was on a time crunch. I've only used the airbrushing a couple times, but it's been fun and practice will clearly improve my application. Foundation goes on pretty easily, it's just the blush and bronzer that have me needing to work on my precision. I can say it was a fabulous birthday gift from Natasha!

Getting Our Shop On

What an amazing weekend I had with Natasha, as you can see we got our shop on! You know usually when you want to go shopping you don't find anything, well we didn't have that problem!

Thursday, July 12, 2012


I was lucky enough to get to spend last weekend with my amazing friend Natasha, we're looking pretty calm here because the day before we had exhausted ourselves shopping!

Down By The River

Dress: Selfmade
Necklace: Sears
Shoes: Winners

It's been so hot we've been enjoying time spent down by the river, I don't even accessorize with a belt as it's just so hot! This dress is a light cotton, so for days like this it's as comfortable as I can be!

The Shoes

Who doesn't love the smell of leather? These boots and the heels below I got from Town shoes where they had buy one, get one free. The boots were originally $295 on sale for $79 and the Calvin Klein heels were originally $135 and I got them for free! 

I'm stoked to wear these beauties

These shoes look much better on...

Stripey slippers!

These last two pairs of shoes I got from Winners, that place never lets me down!

Feature Colour

Dress: Thrifted
Belt: Gift
Rings: F21
Sandals: Aldo

This was the only thing I found at the last VV sale but, I guess if you're only going to find one thing, a polka dot dress is a pretty good way to go!

I'm enjoying my new hair colour, in this outfit it is the feature colour and no I did not enhance these photos one bit.

Stay tuned for amazing photos from my weekend, which included a serious shopping marathon with Natasha!

My Long Weekend

I started my weekend with learning how to use my new Airbrush 
makeup system I got from Natasha!

I checked out the rodeo in Strathmore

Busted out my boots

My pumpkin plants had flowers on them!!!

Zellers had flowers for 99 cents, so I brought home a few more to add to my patio make over that also happened over the weekend. I just got sick of our ugly cement patio and decided to make it pretty. A side effect of not having my mum nearby to hang out in her amazing flower gardens in the summer.
