    OoTD – The Fairest of Them All

    Posted in Uncategorized by
    I meant to post this outfit days ago but I’ve been too busy to sit down and make a post. We’ve been having extremely hot weather in Toronto for the past week or so and I’ve taken to my no sleeves rule quite religiously. I’m going to admit that this was my very first time wearing a sleeveless dress in public since, well I cannot even remember when. Though it felt a little scary, I didn’t have an ounce of regret when I felt the heat hit my body.
     When I was a little girl everyone would tease me by calling me Snow White because my skin is white as snow and my lips are bright red. I used to resent the very mention of Snow White but I really grew to love and embrace the resemblance. I think Ms. White would be quite pleased with my tribute to her, even if I could (and will) go the extra mile.

    OoTD – The Summer Colours

    Posted in Uncategorized by
    I felt incredibly uninspired last night, even if all I needed to get dressed up for was a walk to the corner store. Sometimes I feel like I really don’t have many clothes at all but then I remember I’ve just gotten into the habit of wearing it once and stashing it away until months down the line. 
    Like I stated before, this isn’t a habit I want to keep. I’d like to be able to look through my wardrobe and feel like I made a smart decision with my purchases. I spend a lot of time looking for deals and getting the most for my money so I might as well continue the trend at home. So, I pulled out two items I’ve worn plenty of times and paired them together. Sometimes I forget that I’m still really new to this whole fashion thing. I really never thought I’d be the type to care for clothing but ever since I realized how much I could get from expressing myself through fashion, I’ve never looked back.

    OoTD – The Birthday Party

    Posted in Uncategorized by
    A few months ago I spotted Jennifer Lilly‘s designs on Etsy. I was instantly captivated by her simplistic and sweet designs. I found myself bookmarking each dress and picturing myself wearing them this summer. It was an incredibly hard task to simply pick one piece but I settled on this handmade cotton lace dress. When I first received it in the mail I was ecstatic to finally have my dress. I was incredibly shocked with just how quick she completed and shipped out my dress. I can honestly say I’ve never been more pleased with an Etsy designer before. Not only did she make custom, adorable clothing that I could afford but I wouldn’t have to wait over a month to be able to wear it. 
    I wanted to save this dress for something appropriate. I had a vision of me basking in the sun somewhere with a picnic basket in hand, complete with white cat-eye glasses. Being the impatient person that I am, I simply couldn’t wait any longer to wear this dress and I decided to put on my best sweet face for an 11 year old’s Justin Bieber themed birthday party. I’ll admit that the fabric is a bit heavy and I was concerned about getting too hot but I felt incredibly comfortable in this dress. I ran, painted nails, kept 12 girls from tearing apart a Justin Bieber pinata and I never once felt I was too hot. If you’re looking for the perfect vintage inspired summer dress, I highly suggest checking out what Jennifer Lilly has to offer you. I promise that you won’t regret your purchase.
