My Look : Brights on Monday


Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great day, things are really looking up this week, I feel my creative vibe coming back to me and I could not be more content. I spent the day with my best bud from my school days, shopping for fabrics and adventures in old buildings trying to find designer treasures. What I mean by designer treasure is finding great new fabrics shops, trims and supplies for great prices ;)



These pictures were taken up on the highest floor of some random building, I really like the clinical kind of vintage corridor going on here don't you? We were stopping on every floor and checking out what was on them, so much fun ;)




Tomorrow I am going to go check out some new designs on St-Laurent street and pick up my new Gaya bag from the Volts, I am pretty excited, I was waiting for these bags to go on sale for a week now ;)
I worked on my latest design, still top secret but moving along so well, I can't wait to share you all.

-Vintage 60s coat (gift from mom)
-Vintage sheer blue blouse, Cheapopulance
-H&M mini skirt
-UO tights
-Vintage Ferragamo bow flats, Annex Vintage
-Vintage leather doctors bag, thrifted for 2$ (total score!)
-Clothes line pin, Hairy sock

Feeling Rainy






Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week, I took it pretty easy and stayed indoors most of the time, working on new designs and sewing things. I can't wait to share with you all about what I have been up to to design wise. 

I am going trough a weird time in my life, were I have no idea what to do with all the knowledge that I have in my head and all my ideas. Real life takes over and bills need to be paid and a wedding is coming up in July. I am so happy to be wed to St├ęphane I know he is the one and I can't wait to share the rest of my life with him. I can't wait for the honeymoon, I think we both really need it ;)

  Earlier this week, my mom came over and we had diner with St├ęphane and had a few laughs over cupcakes and tea. My mom did a post just about this here. You get a chance to see the inside of our place and some of the changes we did to our bedroom a while back.

My Look: Simple Denim and Stripes

my look : casual denim

Bonjour everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far. Mine has been pretty quiet, the rain took over and there is a crisp chill in the air. I forgot about these pictures my friend Kate took of me last week during one of the hot days. It was a beautiful weekday afternoon and I bared to go outside with no tights.

These pictures were taken in the plateau area, it is right near my favorite pastry and sandwich shop Les Copains d'abords. They have the best croissant turkey sandwich I ever had for under 5$.

Well on to more serious things, clothes that is, hehe, let me explain this simple denim look to you all... The jacket I thrifted not to long ago for so cheap, I am a sucker for anything vintage Levis, I really like how it looks with the sleeves rolled up. I am wearing a striped tee shirt dress as a tee shirt with this lovely vintage mini skirt I got on Etsy a while back. I was searching for a cute red skirt for the longest time and never came across one while thrifting so I found this one for the right price online. I think this is going to be my favorite skirt for Spring/Summer this year, I can come up with so many color combos in my head. I really like red as an accent color it makes any simple look that much more. 
The leather bow tie is made by Fullum and Holt a local leather company that made these for all of the guest at the Volts event last week, I love it so much. My tote is by Annabella of The Fieldguided, it has one of my favorite song names by Serge Gainsbourg silk screen on it, it is actually an album too, the sounds on that record are amazing you guys should check it out. Here is a little sound clip I found on youtube but I suggest getting the whole album.

My Look : Leather Chiffon


Happy Friday everyone! I am so glad the week is almost over, it has been quite the busy week. I went to a pretty cool event on Wednesday called theVolts. The Volts is an online shop that sells designer clothing and accessories at a discounted price. How it works is that each week they have a selected group of designers and  they curate them for a few days. This week they were featuring work from some Canadian designers. I will talk more about this event over the weekend in a special post just on that ;)


Wearing: vintage motor cycle leather jacket (new but similar),  vintage 60s chiffon dress gift from mom and mister D who found it in Paris ( here is a similar one on etsy), Anna Sui fishnet tights, Urban Outfitters black suede flats



On an other note, the weather was very nice for a couple of days and now it is back to cold and rainy, not very good bike weather ;) So this is an outfit from earlier this week, the dress is a gift from my mom, her man got it for her in Paris but it was just a little to small for her but perfect for me :)  I styled it with my favorite leather jacket that I found for 5$ at a Sherbrooke thrifth store last year, the fit of this jacket is amazing and the leather is so soft. I just love a perfect fitting jacket don't you?
