Roof Tops and Alley Ways

-Vintage 90s gingham circle skirt dress c/o Annex Vintage 
-Vintage leather 70s motor cycle style jacket thrifted in Sherbrooke
-Vintage red leather clutch, thrifted
-Tights, Winners
-Red booties by BC found at Buffalo Exchange in Brooklyn NYC

It's been a few days since I last did an outfit post, I have been pretty busy and sick, I feel much better now, I decided to put on a fun outfit to bring up my spirits. I got this dress at Annex Vintage a local vintage shop here in Montreal and fell in love with the skirt of this dress. It reminds me of a funner version of a dress I saw online the other day. I really am not afraid to be bold in my everyday dress, it's about how you wear it and with the right attitude am so bored with all these nude colors and mixes of neutrals, but that's just me. I am in love with this leather jacket, its fitted, black and has amazing zipper details on the sleeves and the back. Don't you just love finding expectantly that one vintage piece you have been longing for when you least expect it? I sure do :) Well I am off to work now, have a nice day everyone!

YeYe Etsy shop Update! : Just Fall in the leaves!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, I took the time to put together this mini collection of vintage items that I love! I found so much amazing pieces last week, Fall is my favorite time of the year, the layering the possibilities! I have a few Mod Pull overs in this batch a piece that just caught my eye lately, I love how they can be so stylish and laid back at the same time with a colorful light scarf.

I hope you enjoy the pieces as much as I had fun putting them together, as usual all you have to do is click on the image of your fancy and you will be directly in my shop.

The week in Instagram!

I have been pretty obsessed with Instagram lately, it's like a mini flickr in the palm of my hands at all times. Snap here snap there. I like the idea of daily snap shots of things I live and see everyday. So I decided to do The week in Instagram every Saturday morning showcasing pictures from my week. I hope you all enjoy! 

This week was the arrival of my vintage wedding rings in the mail and of my wedding dress that is so superb but I will not be posting pictures of it till we make the big leap that is wedlock. I won two Shirelle's Lps on ebay for 35$ including shipping and thrifted a vintage leather Longchamp back pack for 5.99$. I have been wearing it everyday now. Fall is gently starting to show in Montreal as you can see and this weekend is Puces Pop I am so glad to have my good friend Tara-Lynn in town of Good day, night selling her amazing knits! All you locals should come and check it out.

Addition Elle Styling Event!

I am so glad to be doing this post today, I got the thumbs up to share with you all about my lovely Sunday after noon adventure in Toronto almost a month ago now. The lovely people at Addition Elle put together a styling event featuring some of my fellow Canadian bloggers from all parts of Ontario and two of us from Montreal including Robyn of Fashionista 514. You can go vote now on the Addition Elle Facebook page for your favorite looks and enter to win a 150$ shopping gift card. So our job was to style two looks with Addition Elle clothing and some clothing from a new Line Called Michel Studio that was not sold in stores yet. I scanned the store top to bottom and came up with two looks with a French 70s vibe, I am really into color blocking at the moment so that was a big part of the looks. I really like how it all came together, the colors, textures with different fabrics like knits and faux leather. My model made my job so easy, she looked good in anything I put on her and she was so sweet and fun. I had such a great time with all the other bloggers everyone was so sweet and nice. I was so sad when I had leave to catch my flight back home.

Luv this girl! she was so sweet!

Pretty shoes and jewelry for our styling needs, I had so much fun picking from these.

Me and my model she was amazing!


Look #2

I am really glad that Matchstick and Addition Elle asked me to be a part of this amazing event, I met so many great people that inspired and moved me. I never had the chance to work with plus size models and I have to say it was so easy and fun to do, the possibilities are endless, you just have to have a little bit of confidence and the right attitude and voila! I believe that  no matter what size you are you can be stylish and have fun with your clothing, the trick is in the way you wear it.

Hues of Pink

-Vintage light pink peter pan collar blouse
-Forever 21 overalls
-Emilio Cavallini tights
-Forever 21 booties

Yesterday was quite the busy day, I worked on some shop stuff, met up with an old friend who gave me a great pep talk and then got a hair trim. I decided to go back to my good old bangs, I tried the bangs on the side look for a while but this is my favorite. 

Since it was a pretty early Fall day yesterday I had fun again with layering, I picked up these hot pink tights last week and was drawn to them instantly, I paired them with a velvet burgundy pair of overalls and a light pink peter pan collar blouse I thrifted over the weekend. I wanted to keep it for the shop but could not resist keeping it for myself. I like how the outfit came together I have been having fun playing with colors in the same hues lately I find it fun and unexpected. 

Well better get back to work!
