Winter White

Last summer I bought an amazing white turtleneck from H&M on clearance for $10, but it sat in my closet for months since it is a very warm sweater and I always feel weird wearing a lot of white in the winter. One day I wore it to a meeting and got so many compliments…

80 Years of Warmth

Two years ago, I had the find of the decade. I was visiting my dad in a small northern Ontario beach town and stopped at a vintage store. Every fall they have a huge sale because everything shuts down for the winter season. Initially I was planning on finding some wool sweaters for the winter,…

He Put a Ring On It

So ya, I have a new accessory, the best accessory that a girl could ever ask for in fact, a diamond ring. When visiting Italy in August (see my last post for some details), my amazing boyfriend of eight years became my fiancé. Not only did he plan the most spectacular proposal, but he also…

Roman Holiday

So I know I dropped the ball hard on blogging. Being a full time MBA student took up far more time than I had anticipated and I had to put this on the back burner. Now that I am finished up my degree and am starting my career hunt, I am free to continue on…

Sunday Feels

There have been some really crazy weather changes going on where I’m from. A few weekends ago, it went from a summer-like Saturday to a chilly and dark Sunday. When the weather drastically takes a turn for the worst, I always want to dress comfortably in clothes that are good for lounging on the couch…

Patterns for Professionals

This month has been so insane, I felt like it would never end. I had a ton of meetings and had to dress professionally for all of them. Normally ultra professional wear seems to equate to black, black, and more black. The winter blues hit me pretty hard though and I could not stand the thought…

Oscars Best Dressed

I wait all year for the Oscars. I love to see the glamour that Hollywood’s A-listers bring to the red carpet. This year had some definite stars for me, but overall I felt it was a little lacklustre. Personally, I was really feeling the reds, golds, and whites that were making their way to the…

Sweater by the Sea

The winter is still raging on with tons of snow still being dumped daily. I wanted to feel that much colder, so I decided to take a trip to the water. (It’s not actually the sea, just one of the Great Lakes). Anyways, my boyfriend and I went out to a small waterside town and…

Valentine’s Day

Whether you are going to spend Valentine’s Day with a partner or friends or even alone, you should look super glam. Glam on this loveliest day of love includes tones of red and pink with hair and makeup all done up in just the right way. I personally never wear warm colours (red, orange, yellow, etc),…

Foggy Sunday

Yesterday was unbelievably foggy, like Gotham city level foggy or British country side in Atonement foggy. It was nice because I was stuck inside for most of the day studying. I did go out for a coffee break though and it was unseasonably warm out. Warm enough that freezing cold me didn’t need a coat….

Winter Coats

Unfortunately it is still winter. I am one of those people that after the Christmas season is done, I am ready for winter to bid adieu and make way for spring. To my dismay, this never seems to be the case (remember I do live in Canada AKA in an igloo). I am also chronically cold…

Challenge

So, my being in the MBA program forced me out a job and my bank account has shriveled up in response to no cash inflow and lots of cash outflow from the holiday gift buying for others (and holiday sale shopping for myself). I have decided to challenge myself to not spending money on anything…
