Purple? Yes please!

purpleblazer Much like my beloved outfit from a few weeks ago sporting a boyfriend blazer for the first time, this purple one had me instantly. This outfit really fell into place randomly the day the blazer arrived as I do not actually have any purple in my wardrobe. This top (which I thought was very cool) did not sell at the store so I thought hmm, I wonder if that would work. I took it home, tried it out and thought it just needed one final piece.

I have created a new line of wearable art and conveniently one of them was a blend of purples! A few adjustments for length and voila a very stylish setup!

The Dress Obsession

peachdress In my expert opinion: “Ain’t nothing wrong with that!” Dresses are such a great wardrobe staple for me, when they fit great, they are easy and comfortable. Not only that they are always fun to style up with accessories!

Let me tell you about two new favourite dresses, one snatched up for under $10 at Value Village – no label mixed into the long sleeved tops… the other a consigned dress by Gentle Fawn. Believe it or not I made absolutely no alterations to the peach dress! I was as surprised as you are. It’s one of my favourite colours this season and goes perfectly with all the jewellery I own.

The only alteration required was my usual inch or so up in the shoulder straps! The necklace I’m wearing with both dresses was thrifted from Value Village for $4 (as a set) with the intent to take it apart. It was such a great style I decided to keep it!

Turquoise Fever

My coworkers are never surprised when I walk in wearing something new in this colour, usually full of wild prints and layered accessories. Naturally I have a lot of jewellery that is the same palette, both light and dark tones as well as matching sandals.
