Silk and Wool






We all have one of these days. You know what I am talking about, a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear.

None of the combos amounted to something presentable.

Usually this happens on my day off, when I don't really know how to dress because I can virtually wear anything. I then get stuck in the limbo of wanting to wear everything.

Part of the dilemma was caused by the fact I just received the new Aritzia items I have ordered. This delicate silk shirt seen above is going to become an outfit whether it likes it or not.

Usually, I would pair this with dress pants for a simple yet polished work outfit. But I wasn't going to work, so I was not going to be dressed in work pants. However, a bunch of other bottoms I have tried on just didn't work for some reason. Frustration is slowly starting to creep up.

Then I remembered this vintage wool skirt that I obtained recently from Pat's Vintage, and voila, and outfit was born.

My spirits immediately went from defeated to elated.

I have definitely had days where I was not digging what I put on and it shows. My entire body language is oozing the discomfort I am feeling.

The right outfit is a powerful thing.

Creative Styling :: Wearing a Shirt Backwards

As you know, I have been taking my photos myself since I bought my own camera.

It proved more challenging than I thought at first. This is what happens when you use the remote.

It ends up in the photo because I have to aim it high towards the camera. I also have to press it many times, so my face ends up looking slightly perturbed.

Good thing those remotes were cheap, I'm going back to self timers for sure.

Let get back on track though, this post is about fearlessness.

Be not afraid to wear something in a different way. I got this Robert Rodriguez shirt from Buffalo Exchange when I went to LA.

I loved the color and the raw silk fabric.

However, after wearing it once, I couldn't handle it anymore.

It feels like it's slowly trying to choke me to death.

Maybe not to death, but it's très uncomfortable. I tried to re-sell it at a consignment shop, but no one else wanted it either. Probably for the exact reason I experienced.

The back of the shirt though, is amazing.

So one day, I just decided to turn it around.

Ever since then, I never looked back. I no longer had to, the back is now the front.

I absolutely love this shirt now. The perfect fall accent. But really it can be worn all year round. I am glad it didn't end up selling and gave me a second chance to discover its full potential.

Aritzia Online Order Unboxing

So, have you too been bombarded by these "further reductions" emails from your favourite brands lately?

January is truly the best time to shop. Too bad of our wallets are recuperating from the holidays still.

I caved recently when Aritzia sent out their Siren's call.

Seduced yet again I reduced my shopping cart from six items to three.

Trigger was pulled and the shipment showed up three days after.

Retail therapy certainly works wonders for me.

I love it when a company pays attention to detail. The outer box is immediately impressive to me.

Then the inner box showed matching designs.

The items are even encased in their iconic wrapping.

The inner box is lined with the most perfect shade of peach.

Yes, I do love being thanked.

Sometimes, I like to overdose on one extreme. Take this outfit for instance, it is as girly and soft as it will possibly get.

soft chiffon fabrics with lace and a giant flower? and a pearl necklace? Yeah, it's pretty much the epitome of romantic girly.
