Hey!

Sweaters are always important, but they are really trending this season. Its a trend for women to wear them with mini and maxi skirts, as well as with shorts! I am starting to really appreciate a warm cozy sweater, especially for the fall and winter seasons. Wearing a sweater doesn’t have to be boring, there are plenty of really neat textured knitted sweaters, funky printed sweaters, and slouchy or fitted sweater dress’ to be enjoyed by everyone.  I’m trying to figure out what I want to invest in for winter.. :)

Hey there, its feeling more and more like autumn and I love it! :) I got this jacket at H&M a few weeks back, for only 24, Its great quality for the price I paid. I had to have it, it is so me, and I realized I don’t have any military style coats any-more, so I’m happy to be collecting a new one.

Why You Will Fail To Have A Great Career – Larry Smith

Hey there,

This is wonderful Ted-Talk, it is a must see for anyone who doesn’t know yet what they want to do with their lives, and its a wake up call for those of us that are sacrificing our interests and passions for the sake of our excuses and fears.This video teaches those of us that don’t have a passion, how to find one.  Once you get past the negative title and get used to smiths way of wittily shaming his audience to attention, it gets really interesting. Smiths intensity and satirical way of speaking really demonstrates how important this topic really is, and how contrary it is to the pressures derived from what our society teaches. The video is below the photo. Enjoy :)

Layer It

Now is the time to go overboard with your jewellery. Don’t feel the need to edit yourself down to one bracelet or necklace. If you can’t decide, just wear them all! Lol, but no really, try it!

I personally think continuity looks best. I may not mix silver and golds unless they match pretty well, but as you can see in  some of these photos, the people those wrists belong to, didn’t think like that and it looks pretty cool. Although chunky is in, when layering your jewellery it doesn’t have to look chunky, you can also layer a few delicate necklace chains, and that ends up looking really sweet, and still classic. This go big or go home trend is not to be missed!

Rusted Scissors

ImageImageImageImageImage

Hey there!

This necklace was a fun piece that I put together recently. The necklace is made with some old children’s scissors that I found, and then I rusted the scissors myself over the course of the year using sea-salt and a little water.The scissors are later varnished to protect the rust from coming off. You can check out my etsy listing here. The earrings are made with antique watch faces that are de-constructed from old watches. These are some top-selling pieces that I sell at the market.

The ankle bracelets were a fun thing to try out. I had bought them a while ago on ebay, but only tried them recently. I think they are fun way to make a boring yet comfortable outfit more interesting. and they work great to hold your pants to your legs if you are riding a bike… as my colleague at the market humorously pointed out. ;) however, I don’t have any flared jeans right now, so I am not sure how frequently I will be using them to fulfil that purpose!

Kimono Class

2013-09-18_0016 2013-09-18_0015 2013-09-18_0013These darling articles at first glance may look to some like something that came from a women’s closet in the 1920s, or better yet, maybe something that dressed a geisha, or to some they may just look like lingerie housecoats.  Never-the-less they are really ”in” right now. I have seen them in many cool clothing stores, and I have seen countless fashionistas and bloggers wearing them. I think there is something quite beautiful about these. They have such a luxurious feel when wearing them, and they look so neat billowing or waving while walking into the fall breeze. Although they look luxurious they have a casual and effortless feel, probably because they are so comfortable.  You can get the ready-to-wear shorter ones, the more elaborate versions with prints and tassels, or the lengthy statement kimonos. I’ve seen some really nice ones at Forever 21 and H&M..

Hey,

So as you may be able to tell from recent posts, I really love maxi and midi skirts, aaaaannd I really love mixing prints, and making them work! A lady came up to me the other day when I was wearing this outfit, and she asked me where I got my dress from. I was a little confused because I wasn’t wearing a dress, and when I explained where the skirt and the top were from, she was so surprised. She explained that the prints, although they were different, matched perfectly together. So I guess that goes to show, when you do things right, it will look great. This is what you can do when you mix prints. you can be extreme, like in this post here,  or subtle… as long as you tie the outfit together with a few common colours, and add some continuity with the accessories, (ex- all the same style accessories ) or with the make-up, then things should work. Have fun and play with prints :)
