Not Quite Spring

Blazer: Thrifted
Peplum Top: Selfmade
Velvet Skirt: Thrifted
Tights: Winners
Shoes: Aldo
Necklace: Thrifted

I'm ready for Spring and yet here I am wearing all these dark colours! Why? I'm not too sure. I will say that we have had some beautiful blue Alberta skies these days, and if the icy wind went away I'm sure Spring would come a little quicker. Hope however has returned to me since the discovery of buds on the trees yesterday!

In The Paper

leopard print evening gown, the sun newspaper, olds college, fashion program

The above photo is of a page out of The Sun newspaper and features my leopard print evening gown and the leather perfecto jacket is by my very talented friend Jesse. The college we went to is opening up a brand new facility for the Fashion program and our work was featured as recent alumni. I can't wait to see the new facility!

The Latest Sweater Addition

metallic yarn, sweater, painted denim

knitted sweater, painted jeans, plaid shirt

Sweater: Gift
Button Up: Thrifted
Painted Jeans: Done by me
Shoes: Bakers
Watch: Fossil

Isn't this sweater delightful? A lady who volunteers at my work gave it to me, I guess her daughter made it but it doesn't fit her and so here it is on me! 

Ironically the last few posts have all shown photos of me in the sunshine, but this is a falsehood, a weather sham if you will. It's been blizzardy and ridiculous for the most of the past two weeks with the brief appearance of the sun. I'd usually be okay with this but the blizzards always come when I'd like to take photos and etc. Since the window of time to take photos after work is still a rather small one this weather just doesn't help me. 

Looking on the positive side of things this has meant for some great snow in the mountains, and I'll be savouring every snowy day I do get out on my board until Spring really does decide to come in earnest.

Watch It

joe fresh, boots, spring

nine west boots, dress, tights

Dress: Selfmade
Cardigan Thrifted
Tights: Joe Fresh
Boots: Nine West
Necklace: Gift
Sunnies: Aldo

So I should of kept quiet about the weather, ever since the last outfit photos were taken it's been blizzarding and brutal and obviously not conducive to photo taking. But out the sun has come and it melted all the snow and it was a beautiful evening for a dog walk!

I must get sewing if this is to be the year of finishing things....

Feeling Like Spring

orange, coat, spring, trends

boots, headband, mixing prints, orange trench

Jacket: Gift from Natasha
Dress: Thrifted
Tights: Winners
Boots: Town Shoes
Headband: Ardene
Necklace: Suzy Shier

Okay so at the moment it feels far from Spring like but looking through Spring fashions has really gotten me into the mood for lighter layers and brighter colours. I found this dress on a recent thrifting excursion and it reminded me a lot of some runway looks I had seen from somewhere.... Plus it's mixing prints which I just couldn't resist.

Galloping Around

horse printed fabric, printed onesie

Anthropologie, jumpsuit, leather jacket

horse print, leather jacket

Leather Jacket: Danier
Jumpsuit: Anthropologie
Heels: The Shoe Company
Handband: Gift
Earrings: Gift

Whenever I wear something horse printed the beau amuses himself with continuous comments such as "and where are you galloping off to?" "Horsin' around over there?" "Whoa it looks like a stampede headed this way!" His biggest surprise is the fact that he's the only person that ever says these things.

Meanwhile I must go on a hunt for a tripod, I busted my last one and will not be risking my new camera with balancing it on random objects (Natasha) and waiting for a tragedy to occur.

Sequin Find

Sequin Top: Thrifted
Dress: H&M
Tights: Winners

I'm still thrilled at finding this sequin top, what fun it was to wear! I'm turning into a bird with my never ending want for shiny sparkly things it seems, but I like birds so I'm fine with that......
