This past weekend we celebrated a family friend's wedding. It was held at a cute little chapel attached to a heritage home accompanied by a small morning ceremony and brunch.
My outfit probably was more suited for an evening affair but instead of pairing it with dark shoes; I added some bright yellow to make it the look more daytime appropriate. Even though the weather was extremely cold I wore this dress bare legged. As you can see from the sheerness I couldn't wear stockings anyway.
I recently acquired this dress from a shopping binge at ASOS. When I first saw it, it reminded me of the Stella McCartney dress. However since I thought I would only wear this look once, the cheaper option was the way to go. Overall this is my favourite LBD in my closet right now.
When I first saw this hat on the runway I almost died. I was obsessed with how this hat added sophistication to an outfit. It reminded me of a cool and sexy 60's housewife. This was also a favourite accessory for Anna Dello Russo, who wore it on many occasions during Paris fashion week. Since I am a big hat lover and as promised in my recent post, it was only appropriate for me to come up with a DIY on this amazing hat.
For this DIY you will need:
1. knit toque (any colour you desire),
2. tulle netting or hat netting (colour to match the colour of the toque),
4. sewing needle (preferably a thick one),
5. thread (same colour as the toque and netting), and
6. measuring tape
Lay-out the netting and measure out a rectangle. Depending how big or small your head is I find that 24 1/2" inches by 7 1/2" inches is a good size for most head circumferences.
Place the toque in the middle of the rectangle netting. Than take the two ends of the netting and fold it over in the middle of the toque. Overlap the netting over each other by 1" inch; this makes it easier to sew the netting together to the toque.
Take your needle and thread and start sewing 1" inch from the rim of the toque. Stitch upwards (towards the peek of the hat) for 3" inches. When wearing the toque tuck the bottom edges into the toque to secure the loose ends.
Spent a lovely Saturday last weekend catching up with my fav girl Rob. We sipped on some tea and nibbled on fresh scones, as we talked for 3 hours straight. This usually is the agenda for us when we get together because we always commit verbal diarrhea with each other! lol!
This outfit for our outing was put together from sheer laziness. Reason being that I did not have the courage to put on heels to walk 6 blocks to the Windsor Arms...I know I can be lazy sometimes...hehehe
P.S. Sorry for the fuzzy pics as I recently got an iPhone and wanted to try out the camera.
I love cleaning my closet because I always find old treasures; like this jacket and these jeans. But the Prada purse is something new in my closet. I picked it up this week from Prada after they specially made it for me in the Bluette. This makes me the only person in the country who has this colour in this style...lucky me : ) Thanks Prada!
Outfit: Coat (Vero Moda), Sweater (Marc by Marc Jacobs), Jeans (Thrifted), Boots (Vintage), Purse (Prada), Sunglasses (Valentino), Toque (Stolen from the bf)
Something to get excited about with Aldo shoes. Designer collaboration with Mark Fast, J.W Anderson and Preen available at Selfridges. But for all of us North Americans we will have to wait a couple of weeks to see them in Aldo stores early March. Ladies start lining up now!
Olympia Le-Tan verses Kate Spade vintage book clutch. Lately I have been obsessed with clutches especially the one of a kind ones from Olympia Le-Tan. But for those who don't want to get a second mortgage on their homes the Kate Spade ones are cute too.
