Kiss of the Golden Sun

The weather gods have been extremely generous last week, until the weekend that is.

I still had enough time to go traipse around in my new maxi statement dress.

I have this dress in two colours.

I originally only knew of the dark version until I visited the websites that carried the dresses.

You can also get it here.

At the time, the dark version was only available in L, but the white version was available in all three sizes.

Knowing that the large may not fit as well as a medium and small I decided to order both dresses. The dark in a Large and the white in a Small and hoped for the best.

They both arrived super fast.

I am so glad I ordered them in both colours because even though they are the same dress, the colour difference dramatically changes the entire look.

I will do a side by side shoot in the future.

I love how this dress is short in the front, adding some sex appeal to a sweet print.

The only criticism I have is that I have to wear this dress with a belt. Perhaps it's the way it's cut, perhaps it's the shape of my body, if I don't cinch at the waist, the whole thing looks much more frumpy.

But my trusted flower belt from Gentille Alouette does the trick very well.

I also love clothing that takes on a life of their own when I move around.

The dress seem to be dancing with me.

The glow of the setting sun highlighting my outline makes my heart jump for the joy that it will be summer very soon.

That means, the dress can be worn without the accompaniment of these tights.

Who am I kidding, I will probably live in these tights through out summer.

Deepcove, fur and my LV Multicoloured Sologne

Vancouver has finally awaken to a dusting of snow. I remember I used to be so mesmerized by the beauty of the falling flurry.

That magical blanket of white stuff always manages to make everything look that much more beautiful. But ever since I started driving, that sentiment is not quite the same.

Nonetheless, I wish I had captured the pure beauty of the white blanket. Instead, let's rewind a little to just before the snow has fallen.

I myself have something that is canvased in white.

I got her last year around this time from Ann's Fabulous Finds.

I like to wear light colours in the Winter, I find the juxtaposition incredibly refreshing.

Shirt, skirt, boots and fur scarf/vest all from Talize. Soon, I will be able to open my own.
Layered tights from various places.

Ah, the great outdoors and the amazing view of the West Coast mountains and water.

So amazing that even in the dead of winter, we can still enjoy such beautiful lush green surroundings.
