Same for less

On Valentines Day, my fiancé and I watched on old classic movie, that neither of us has seen – Cleopatra. If you haven’t seen it, I totally recommend it. Elizabeth Taylor is gorgeous in it! I loved all her costumes and accessories she wore. It inspired me one evening for a night out with my girlfriends. I bought this black and gold sequin skirt a few weeks ago, and paired it was a Jessica Simpson blazer and tank. The finishing touch was a tiered black and gold necklace.

This past weekend I finally celebrated my birthday (which was over a month ago)! I wanted my party to be fun and full of sparkles – and that’s exactly what it was! I wore a rose sequin v-neck dress by BCBG – it simply amazing. Its sparkly, fun and sexy. We went to Yates Street Taphouse for towers of beer and appies followed by a night of dancing. It was fabulous!

Ps: I’m sorry for the lack of postings the last few weeks. Work has been insanely busy, and all my free time has gone into wedding planning! Can’t wait to catch-up with all of you and your blogs!

The past two mornings here in Victoria, we’ve been woken with the sun! So naturally, I had to bust out the new sunnies. Lark and Sparrow posted these fabulous shades on their facebook page and I had to go check them out! I love how the frames come to a point near the top like cat ears. This season has definitely been all about triangles and gold/silver detailing.

It was love at first sight, what can I say! Total impulse buy, mainly because I’m in love with this pale teal colour for spring. The small gold detail around the shoe gives it a nice touch too! Love the feeling of fresh shoes.

I absolutely love my boots from Aldo, as you’ve probably noticed throughout the blog I wear them quite frequently — in fact I base a lot of my outfits around them. This one is no exception. I love the look of a short skirt with ankle boots. I threw on the vest to break up the black and give off more of a street vibe.

Who says shorts are only for summer? Layer them over some cute stockings, throw on some booties, and you have a perfect winter attire! Go ahead, wear your shorts all year round — tho I’m the type of person that would wear a cute dress in the snow. 🙂

Same shirt, different outfit

One shirt. 2 different outfits. I love wearing dresses – all year round! During the colder
months I always want to wear some of my summer dresses. I started pairing my long
sleeve shirts with my sleeveless dresses, so I wouldn’t freeze. The result – “new” looking dresses! One of my favorite shirts – is a basic black lace sleeve top from H&M. Its form fitting so it fits nicely underneath a dress, but it is also flattering to wear with skinny jeans and a nice scarf. Just because it’s a top, doesn’t mean it can go with a dress… go ahead, give it a try!

Same pants for less

I’ve really been wanting a pair of leather pants lately, particularly on that was a bit high-waisted. While I saw these pair of Ralph Lauren pants, I was not so keen on that price tag.

However, with a little searching around I was able to find quite a similar pair from Plenty that fit SO nicely (really compliments my bum, big plus!). And they’re super comfy to wear too — for $89 regular price, even better I caught them during a sale and got them for $45.
