Christmas Came Early

This morning, I ran out of the house in my pyjamas as soon as I found out that the package from my best friends has come! I was truly ecstatic & extremely grateful for having the friends that I do. This could not have come at a better time to cheer me up, and tear up, at the same time. Merci beaucoup mes meilleurs amis!

Nordstrom’s changeroom’s waiting room (got that?) is extremely posh! I suppose they have done right in making sure the husbands and boyfriends are waiting in comfort, or broke girlfriends like I.

Straying away from my usual black and loose fitting clothes results in this. For a more refined side of my style, I wore a bright jumper with a subtly coloured button down and a pair of classic jeans. To escape a rather ‘basic palette’, the addition of a statement necklace gives an interesting neckline. Brown, leather accessories are a must in any woman’s closet to finish off an outfit.

Camouflaging

20141013_152522For Thanksgiving, my family and I went to the park to take pictures of the beautiful scenery. Not even realizing until later, I was dressed as if intended to camouflage against the colours of nature (with the exception of my bright hat).

Brunch in Miu Miu

It’s been three weeks since I got my Miu Miu’s and it was only today that I thought fit to wear them. So what did I get? Vintage inspired sunglasses which I absolutely adore!

Since I wanted this piece to be the main point, I worked around it by wearing blue, white and brown basics. Having already worn my white tee yesterday, I used my romper to act as a tank by layering high waisted shorts over it. Classic, white sneakers was trending on NYFW but guess who bought a pair just a week before that? Moi 😉

Call me crazy but there is something magical about eating breakfast when it’s no longer morning. You can also call me clumsy for having ordered the wrong course.

What a posh bench!

Les “non

La maladie may be getting to me, enough that it has manipulated my mind to wear my “non”s. What do I mean? I have never worn leggings as pants, earrings that are mismatched and rarely on the brown and black combo. Yet, I did all that today.

I suppose that since all the pieces can be categorized as basic, I didn’t end up looking like a hot mess. As you all know, I love achieving the illusion that I’m tall. These polka dotted leggings by UNIQLO are perfect because the fabric is magical. It can be stretched effortlessly, which allowed for this high-waisted look, and hugged my body very well as if made for my proportions.

Calgarian Raincouver Ready

Waking up to heavy clouds this morning made me happy! It gave me good reason to dress up in almost all waterproof. As a former Vancouverite, I am still well-equipped for a dance in the rain: clad in raincoat, a waterproof wristlet and rubber boots. Though my bestest friends are well aware that these boots are cursed because everytime I wear them, it doesn’t rain. It held up to its title today.

Since I wanted the raincoat to be the main point of interest for its cool vibrancy and built-in cinching waistbelt, I paired it with light, cigarette jeans. Though a little more pop of colour from the addition of this functional wristlet should ease this outfit from ordinary.
SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESAs I very much adore the cute bow detail on these rainboots, I decided to cuff my jeans. Now, it even looks like I have a new pair of denim!

Lady-like in Public Transit

New York is a fashion capital and I was not going to waste my chance of pretending I belonged. I achieved this lady-like look by wearing a floral dress with lace and pearl embellishments. Since the dress is already very busy, I chose simple, yet elegant accessories. To juxtapose the softness of the dress, I paired it with a leather satchel, watch and shoes.

Nautical Tendencies

My best friends and family are well aware of my obsession with blue and white. But who can resist this classic, nautical combo? To play up the simplicity in colours, I wore pieces that each have their own unique factor: the button down frayed at the bottom, the pants that have zippers down the side, and the flats with cute tassels. I accessorized with dark coloured pieces to balance out the relatively bright outfit.

Just kidding, I could only dream. Stay tuned for the next few days because I will be posting heavily of my travels!
