With a little help from my friends...







Last Saturday evening I celebrated my belated friends birthday bash with my close friends and the lovely ladies at Citizen Vintage here in Montreal, the girls were so sweet to let us use there space to host this event :)

The mastermind behind all of this was Sarah one of my bestest pals, she runs Cheap Opulence online and at many local events in Montreal and Toronto. Her first surprise as you may know was to bring me Tara-Lynn down from Hamilton who took these photos since I forgot my camera at home because I was so nervous about this event. I am a shy girl believe it or not!

The evening was filled with lots of giggles and photo taking by Citizen Vintage, Jenny and Cheap Opulence posted pictures from the evening too.

Enjoy!

Style Inspirations : Miu Miu Fall 2011







Miu Miu’s Fall 2011 collection took me a while to get use to, but I have to say I really like the proportions she used for this season and the way she made the collars over sized and unconventional.  I adore the vintage silhouette a mix between 70s and the 20s one of my favorite vintage mixes.

Overall a great collection, maybe not my favorite but different, I really like the use of novelty prints in the dresses and the burnt orange tones paired with gold and silver sparkly shoes. 

To see the full collection visit here:

Style Inspirations : Paris Vogue February 2011










As a lot of you may know I am a big fan of color and mixing it up. I came across these photos from February's 2011 Paris Vogue, I was blown away by Mario Sorrenti's photo shoot and all the different locations chosen for each photograph. My favorite is the Marc Jacobs shot with Lara Stone in a pink linen overalls and a red jacket also in Linen. It makes me want to lay in some flowers and count the clouds in the sky go by.  

When we went to New York I visited the Miu Miu store on 5th Ave and touched the amazing leather jacket seen in the last photo. A work of pure fashion art it is! That whole collection was mind blowing to see in person actually. I wish I could have taken pictures inside the store to show you all.

Wednesday's best











On this quiet Wednesday the sun woke me up and put me in a good mood, after a few days of cold grey days  we finally got some nice hot weather. It was a perfect day for a vintage cotton dress. I found this one on etsy back in the Winter. I shortened the skirt and fixed all the seams. I am happy I kept it after all, I was not sure for the longest time but now I am sold on it. 

I was wearing:

- 60s Vintage dress from etsy
-White socks from H&M
-Nude oxford shoes from XXI

Sunday afternoon at Citizen Vintage


This weekend I made my way to Citizen Vintage, Montreal's newest vintage shop in the Mile end. They are located at 5330 Boulevard Saint Laurent, the shop is perfectly curated and feels nice and cozy. I really liked the lay out of the shop and how everything has it's own place.  I was greeted by one of the co-owners Brooke who was as nice as apple pie :)

I fell in love with a Betsey Johnson lace dress with matching bolero, it had to be mine! I will wear it very soon and take a proper outfit post very soon.









If your a Montreal Citizen you must go, the racks are very easy to shop and placed by color and style, there is even clothing for men, so ladies bring your boyfriends! If your planning a trip to Montreal this Summer this is a must stop for all vintage lovers I promise. Be sure to check out their tumblr here:

Lady at Sunset








I am trying new things with my wardrobe these days, trying to be a little different and lady like. Wearing heals and long hem lines. The sun was setting and the air was warm the perfect evening for a dress like this one. I picked it up at Annex last weekend the shoes are also from there. I was attracted to the print and the Asian feel of the dress it kind of reminds me of last seasons Louis Vuitton collection. I toped the look off with a red straw hat I picked up a few Summers ago in Toronto. The basket purse is borrowed from my shop.
