Vintage 60s white shades, Courage my love 
Vintage 60s dress, from Hollie Point Vintage
Vintage white leather bag
Vintage wool beret in eggplant
UO opaque tights
Japanese black platform wedges

Bonjour folks, I hope you are all having a great week, I ventured out in the snow today, not an easy task but I survived, I love having snowy alley ways as backdrops, it makes colors like these pop! This green coat is one of my favorites in my collection, I really like how the bottom flares and the matching belt, it almost looks like a  Winter trench coat. This dress is pure fun, the hem line is my favorite part it feels so bouncy and fun when I wear it.

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

After the Storm

Forever 21 shades
H&M pea coat
UO chambray blouse
Vintage Coach purse
Ditto red jeans
Forever 21 nude oxfords 

I woke up this morning to a very hot apartment, the sun was shinning and the air outside was very cold. I went with a simple but yet chic me outfit today. I found these Ditto red flared jeans while thrifting, absolute luck, I have been wanting a pair for quite some time. This is my signature denim look that I wear most of the time.  As you can see most of what we got on Saturday is gone, the snow removal folks worked all weekend long. Next week is going to be warmer, I can just smell Spring.

Have a wonderful Monday everyone!

New Acquisitions

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, here is a little collection of things I acquired recently, I went a little  crazy for shoes from Japan, I can't wait to wear the yellow oxfords in this last photo. St├ęphane brought me a pretty bouquet of flowers, isn't he romantic   My wedding shoes also arrived, They look so cute and dainty  don't you just love the big bows on them?

I spoke about it in my last post but I can't stop wearing my new friendship bracelet my friend Sarah made, I think everyone needs one :) 

I scored 2 designer purses in one week, I am on a roll lately with the thrifting scores, what is your best thrift find lately?

City Slicker

Vintage 70s red wool wide brim hat
Vintage black eyelash sweater
Vintage denim shirt
Vintage 60s red wool skirt (remixed) 
H&M navy pea-coat
Cheap Opulence leather friendship bracelet, c/o Cheapopulence
Vintage 80s cutout western style boots

Today's outfit is pure city fun, I mixed basic neutrals with pops of red to coordinate these insane cowboy boots I found early last week. I love the teal cutout detail on these boots, they remind me so much of those leather jacket Miu Miu made a few seasons ago. This red skirt has got to be one of my favorite pieces to remix right now, it goes with so many looks, the pencil skirt is my favorite cut for Spring, but I prefer it in knit fabrics for movement and ease when walking, a kick pleat at the back is a must! Do you guys like the awesome friendship bracelet I am wearing? My friend Sarah over at Cheap opulence will  be selling them on Etsy very soon, they are all hand made by her with colored leather cord, I can't stop wearing mine!

Well we just got hit with 20cm of snow this morning, so it is back to layering Winter looks for a few more weeks! I can't wait for Spring and to take all my new shoes out for walks ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!
