Vintage Flowers

I was in a rush to leave the city one Friday and out of the corner of my eye I noticed Starling – a new vintage store on College St. (west of Dufferin).  In a matter of minutes I found this floral dress for $20.  There’s nothing I love more than a well kept vintage shop, and this place is definitely that.  They sell really cute dresses and a lot of other eye catching items at fair prices.
I’m also wearing my grandma’s necklaces, vintage earrings & bag, lace-up boots by Bass, and my most exciting accessory – my new bike by Beater Bikes.  It’s the most comfortable ride, and I’ve been all over town with it.  I call it the green machine.  JD

Blue Jean Baby

…LA lady. Seamstress for the band. Love that song and especially this scene from my favourite movie. Must re-watch soon. I didn’t learn my lesson with the heat wave and decided to wear my white jeans yet again!  Sometimes I get on a kick and wear the same things over and over.

Jeans are from Joe Fresh, top is an exceptional find from Value Village – it’s vintage Jacob! the tag looks like it could date back to 1990.  Sweetness.  Jean jacket is also a stellar find from Value Village – Vintage Levi’s!  I can’t take credit for it though, it was a gift from my BFF.  My favourite sky high heels are from Winners, belt is from a vintage shop, and my necklace is from Anthropologie.

Floral Explosion

I’ve been gravitating towards floral print items for the past couple seasons now, and I’ve gathered quite the collection.  My newest addition is this sheer floral top from H&M.  I paired it with pleated shorts from H&M as well.  Shoes are by Cole Haan, and my bag and necklace are vintage finds.  Happy long weekend!

Casual Comfortable Cool

I just love being casual!  It makes me so happy.  For a city stroll in the sun the other day, I wore my Second Denim Yoga Jeans in black.  They’re comfortable but not bummy.  The best.  I also wore my fringe top from Urban Outfitters, denim shirt from Zara, and vintage finishing touches – Cowgirl boots from a Thrift store in Port Colborne ($10), cashmere touque from my dad, and aviator sunglasses from my grandpa…they’re from the 70s and I love them.  Hope you’ve been enjoying the sunshine and strolling around. I can’t get enough.  JD

Bold Brocade

This girly brocade dress is from Zara. It makes me feel a bit like Betty Draper.  It’s a sleeveless number, but to make it a bit more wearable I added a simple black cardigan from the Gap.  Gold belt is from Print Fine Vintage on College street, and my bag is a vintage coach purse that I picked up from a vintage pop-up sale, also on College street. It was $5!  To stick with the girly theme, I added not one but two flower corsage.  Cognac booties are from Capezio (old).  JD

Tiger Tail

Wearing an all black outfit against an orange wall reminds me of tiger tail ice cream.  I wonder if that still exists?
I’m wearing my Jason Wu for Target black pleated skirt, with a classic black turtle neck from Jacob.  To make the outfit interesting I added a flower on my neck, a gold belt, and leopard boots from Top Shop.  It’s all about the accessories.  JD

This Time Last Year

Sometimes I look at my own blog for outfit inspiration.  I wasn’t sure what to wear this morning so I took a look at what I was wearing this time last year, and voila, I’m happy with this outfit still.
It’s good to keep inventory of what you have and remember the outfits you’ve already styled so you can get dressed in a flash on days when there’s simply no time.  On a side note, I cannot believe it’s already March!! Hopefully spring-like weather will begin sooner than later.  Happy Friday! JD

Outfit details: H&M Sweater, Zara skirt, Handmade hat from The Hack, Vintage accessories and hat, Cole Haan boots.
