My Style: Last Outfit of 2012

Last Outfit of 2012 taken on 31-12-12

Just a quick post for today, my camera was acting up outside and all I got was one kind of decent shot in the snow. I wanted to show you guys all this pretty snow we got this week, I guess you can see it here. It was not to cold today so I decided to venture out. I usually shoot in this alley but for some reason it looks much more different. With all that said today was perfect for wearing wool on top of wool, this Comme des Garçons mohair circle skirt is my favorite one for Winter. I thrifted it a few years ago, crazy what people get rid of no? I hope you all have an amazing NYE, I can't wait to hang out with some good friends and eat some all you can eat sushi downtown and possibly pass out before the New Year gets here ;)

Wishing you all an awesome 2013!
Wearing:

-Forever 21 dress worn as top
-Comme des Garçons circle skirt, thrifted

Daily Outfit : Black Lace Shift

My Style : Black lace shift

Yesterday evening I finally got my act together and set up my lighting in my tiny studio, I will have to shoot indoors for the next few months since I don't want to take a chance in breaking my camera outside since the temps are so low. I think this backdrop is perfect for the time being. We got hit with a historic snow storm earlier this week 45+ cm of snow yikes!! Real pretty but overwhelming. The streets have been pretty much paralyzed and so have the alley ways so picture taking in the great outdoors is a no go for the time being.

Lately I have been really into darker garments like this simple black lace shift dress with shiny peter pan collar, now that my hair is not jet black I can get away with darker clothing without looking too Gothic. I am all about these platform shoes I got last year at UO, they did not get to much wear this year, but I plan on wearing them with flared jeans in the Spring.

Stéphane and I are getting ready for tomorrow, NYE, we are going to have a fun evening of all you can eat sushi and cocktails with some close friends, I need to go hem my dress now!

Be safe kids ;)

Vintage Montreal : Christmas Edition 64 to 67

vintage Montreal Christmas edition

I came across some pretty amazing photographs of Montreal in the mid 60s during Christmas today and wanted to share with you all in the world. These make me so happy and fuzzy inside, it is snowing softly outside my window right now as I type these words. I love seeing the happy faces on the little children, it seams like everything was so simple back then. 

Merry Christmas dear readers enjoy this flashback!

My Style: Vintage Fur

Braveing the Cold

It is freezing up here in Montreal, so cold that my camera acts up on me. I quickly took these pictures yesterday but did not last very long, I am pretty happy with the end results. I was playing around with a soft filter on my lens but quickly took it off, I don't quite see the effect and my camera just did not want to focus with it on. I took out one of my favorite vintage coats, this one has a Mink fur collar that pops up perfect for really cold temps and super chic! I shortened this coat last year, I found it to be to heavy to carry around when it was longer. I wore my cat skirt underneath with a vintage green Lacoste polo with really warm opaque black tights, they are warm and fuzzy on the inside, I may need to get an other pair. I plan on staying indoors today and working on stuff at home, I am sewing up some last minute Christmas gifts. 
Stay warm kids!

Remixing : Vintage Coats

Winter Coats Remix

Outfit posts keep getting harder for me to take when the days get shorter, and my work schedule changed up quite a bit this makes it really hard since I sew 4 days a week indoors I always reach for comfy stuff when we hit the really cold temps. The great thing about getting up so early is seeing the pretty sunsets that Montreal Winters shows every morning, the sky is a light pink at the bottom and a light blueish grey on top, so pretty.

Here is a little collection of Winter outfits from the beginning of this season and last year, I love putting all these shots together and getting inspired by what I wore before. I am so happy to have a pretty nice collection of colored Winter coats, I am still on the prowl for a yellow one and cobalt blue one and maybe if I am really lucky a 60s tapestry one like this.

Have a great week everyone!
