Thrift Pieces for Guys and Girls

Seems like awhile since I have thrifted.

The online retailing world was lured me away from my roots. It's the daily bombardment of emails and ads and facebook feeds.

But one trip is all it takes to remind me of why I fell in love with the sport of thrifting in the first place.

There is little that is more satisfying than finding that seriously amazing piece of treasure that countless people have passed up on and knowing that I have paid next to nothing for it. Oh, and part of that money I spend goes towards a charitable cause. Plus it's eco fashion. Oh the benefits! Why did I ever stop?

This haul is not as big as some of my previous ones, but it's safe to say I love all of the items. Michael came with me again, and he found some amazing pieces, too.

Gentlemen first.

He didn't make out with too much, but they are all great items.

Benetton corduroy slim fit, guess sweater, navy striped hoodie, thrifted finds, men's fashion

My favourite item would have to be those United Colors of Benetton slim fit corduroys.

That is until these amazing Florsheim wing tips.

Thrifted wing tip Florsheim shoes, burgundy wing tip shoes, dress shoes, mens dress shoes, thrifted shoes

Effortlessly, they make a great casual pulled together outfit.

I highly encourage you to visit our local thrift shop. But if that is not your thing, here's where you can find these items online.

Same shoes here.

Similar corduroys here.

Here are my spoils.

Thrifted large cable knite sweaters in red blue and yellow, large sweaters, cable knit sweaters, thrift finds

I can't wait to style out these items.

I also got some shoes.

stuart weitzman shoes, brown loafers, vintage lady shoes from france, thrifted shoes

But my favourite item of the day would HAVE to be this vintage Danier leather jacket?

My iPhone white balance is whack, the piece is supposed to be the green color you see on the top right. It fits me like a glove! I definitely can't wait to style this one out.

Oh yeah, I got an oversized wool coat and a tribal print jacket as well.

Here's an impromptu outfit pulled from the items not individually photographed.

tribal jacket, striped shirt, black leggings, golden cowboy boots, thrifted style, outfit, fashion

Similar jacket here.
Similar shit here.
Similar cowboy boots here.

I hope you too would take some time out to do some of your own hunting. Now, go forth and prosper.

I Dream in Chiffon

You are Invited to a Spring Garden Party. Browse the Wild Flowers Look on Shopbop!

I actually can't recall a day when my outfit is chiffonless.

Or maybe that is just my default name to all that is sheer and light and fabulous.

Today's funtastic Friday outfit is oh so creamy and dreamy.

All pieces are recent acquisitions, from local boutiques, to happenstance to adventures abroad. Everything comes together to make this flirty girly outfit happen.

The days leading up to this post, the pieces have been revealed on facebook and my instagram accounts.

Since I have the purse up, I will talk about the purse first.

From my previous post you guys probably already know that I got this purse on impulse while on my way to the photo shoot destination. But I am so glad I got it, it really completes the outfit.

We have been so lucky with the weather lately, even daisies are still unyielding.

It's going to be another amazing weekend this weekend. I hope you all have a great one.

Tait Boutique in Gastown

It's time to introduce another local gem of a shop to you guys.

I discovered this store while I was on my way to do a photo shoot for the next Poser post.

Just so happens, they had a purse there that went better with my outfit than the purse I paired with it. as a true fashionista, I had to snatch up that purse, and at 30% off, why not?

This is the purse and a sneak peak of next post.

I Love Jennyfleur Loves


I have already introduced Jennyfleur Loves Boutique to you guys in this post.

That was a pretty fun night at Fashion's Night Out Vancouver.

I was already in love with the mobile version of her store.

But what you guys didn't know is that the next day I went to the physical store.

Mainland Street Court, Vancouver

Inside the Mainland Stree Court, is the cute boutique filled with endless treasure.

My intention was to take photos of the store for the post. But I ended up buying more things.

They were just so amazing! The store is really something.

It's like an endless treasure trove of amazing gems. One after another, just when I thought I was done looking, I see more things that I like.

As a result, my last three outfits of the day had one piece from them.

Goddess Wing shirt.

Asymmetrical, drapey and sheer! It's a piece of heaven.

You all know I have an obsession with mustard already. So this Better B. hi lo dress was a no brainer. It looks great with a belt and wedged cork heels as well.

And then finally, my favourite piece of clothing to date.

The brand is called See You Monday and what do you know, I got it on a Monday as well.

It's so amazing I could die!! See!

Holly Boutique in Gastown

As you Facebook friends know I was defeated by the Aritzia warehouse lineup yesterday.

It went around and around!

Line up for Aritzia warehouse sale inside Canada Place Convention centre

I could have taken a better photo, but did not want to feel like a creeper. Good to see some dudes in the line up though.

Feeling dejected, there was little that could coax me out of hiding from the newest show I was watching and my egg white omelet.

But a phone call from my hunnie in need, I was off.

He needed a button for his gorgeous grey suit for today and he was not able to get to the store in time.

The button mission was alas successful. Even though I wasn't able to find the exact match, I think the options I ended up with will do just fine.

Buttons from Button Button, Code of Arms buttons, Silver Buttons, Vintage Buttons

I think the different top button adds such an edge!! He may even start a trend!

Since I'm out, might as well do a detour.

As luck would have to, down the street from Button Button is Holly.

This gorgeous gem of a boutique in Gastown.

Owned by a lovely lady of the same name I have admired this store for some time now. From the Yelp reviews and testimonial from a friend, I just had to go in!

This would be a lovely addition to the list of stores I frequent.

Lucky for me today, Holly herself was at the store. With her permission, I was able to get some photos of the interior.

I love the colours she chose for her store and the fresh and fitting logo.

The racks are well organized.

I was especially drawn to her jewelry collection.

The trip was fruitful and I did return home with some goodies.

Even the shopping bag is adorable!

I got two items.

The first is this adorable Charlotte Ronson blush crop top with embellished reverse shoulder pad detail.

As well as this amazing Plastic Island lace back little black dress.

The top though, is really what I am super excited about.

I always loved clothing that blended two opposite elements together in one piece of clothing.

The material of this top is soft and girly and feminine. While the black shoulder pads adds a dash of edge! I knew exactly what to style this with.

Since this post is long enough, I will share the style post on Tuesday.

Here is a sneak peak.

Remember those Embellished fishnet leggings from GoJane I got? Well, they make an appearance, too.
