Paint a Dress Velvet

Happy Monday! Thank you for your patience, I am posting my first of many official posts shot by the amazing Iulia Agnew.

I am modeling one of many amazing vintage pieces in her store, PaintaDress.

The dress will be available soon, in the mean time, see what else she has.

UPDATE!! The dress is now listed in her store, you can buy it here.

This dress can be dressed up to down.

We stuck with a more dramatic theme with the jewelery.

But the entire look changes if you switch up the hardware. With this simple collar, it immediately takes on a more clean, fun and casual flare.

70's Floral with 70's Hair

As much as I miss my red hair, I do appreciate how much healthier my hair has gotten ever since I dyed it back black.

It's a sweet spot right now when the old red is peaking through from under the black dye. At least it's not completely gone right away.

From the daily abuse I have done to my hair, I was in desperate need of a conditioning treatment.

Good thing an old friend of mine just started at a new salon that offers that. If you live in Vancouver, I would definitely urge you to check out the Heartbreaker Salon. For $25, you can get an amazing conditioning treatment while reading some cat books and enjoying a beer. As for Kimiko, she will take care of ya. Check out her Instagram Profiile, @kimikostella.

She finished my cut and treatment with fun voluminous curls.

Check out the before and after.

Wow my hair was long.

The curls went great with my vintage floral shirt so I had to capture the look.

It was another sunny day thankfully. But too bad it's still so cold!

Sometimes though, it's hard to cover up such an awesome shirt with a jacket.

It's all about being comfortable this Valentine's for me.

Something that I can also lounge in so to speak.

But I can't get away from adding at least some red.

The feather headband is the perfect touch.

Ohh! This color makes me look more tan.

Now I'm ready, for a picnic in the meadow. Too cold to be in a meadow? My solarium will do.

Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year's Eve. It's not until tomorrow, but it's actually already tomorrow in China.

In China, the eve is actually the night people celebrate. Everyone would have a huge family feast and watch the variety show put on by CCTV. Just so happens, it is also my lunar birthday.

When I was in china, my parents would always tell me that the whole country is celebrating my birthday. That statement sure did pump my ego.

But in reality, having my birthday on the only night it's mandatory to celebrate saves my parents a night of marry making.

Don't get me wrong, they are not against marry making, but they are also efficient people. So thus, my true Gregorian calendar birthday is erased from their minds.

It is kind of cool to know that every year my birthday is bound to go out with a bang! It's customary to set off fireworks at midnight to ward away any evil spirits.

So as we welcome in the year of water snake, what are your plans? This is a second chance to start your new year's resolutions again.

To welcome in this occasion, I am going with a less traditional outfit but still incorporating some elements of Chinese New Year celebrations.

Thank you Aberdeen center to doing half the work and providing the perfect back drop.

As for the outfit, I chose to dress in a more subdued colour.

It is the year of the Water Snake after all.

Thus I am echoing that via the Wave Leggings from Romwe. Get them here, Romwe "Big Wave" Leggings

Red and gold are also mandatory colours. Hence my red highlights are making a guest appearance again.

Red hair and gold coin top

The Gold Coin top from Forever21 offers the perfect amount of gold to represent good fortune.

My hair even matched this trendy store's decor.

They have also decided to sprinkle in red to welcome the new year.

I hope your new year be filled with happiness, joy and good fortune. A fantastic meal and red pockets filled with money is a great start
as always.

Form vs. Function

Today's outfit actually sparked some dialogue from the boyfriend.

See anything unusual?

What about now?

That's right, I am wearing two belts. The same belts in fact in opposite colours.

I put it on and boyfriend was shocked that I was serious about wearing it out.

He went on a long "rant" about how in fashion, form has long eclipsed function. These belts serve no other purpose than to decorate my mid torso.

The fact that I would layer two ostentatious belts together is a huge statement in supporting that argument.

I am also wearing two scarves, tied together to add more volume.

And also warmth, so I would say that is both form and function.

When you move south, I am wearing my leggings with my maxi skirt.

Definitely more function than form. I would much rather wear this the way it should be worn, with a pair of hairless bare legs.

I believe this is a place to blend form and function. Much like these belts, circling each other and representing both the Ying and Yang.

But then, we have these sometimes.

Now I am speechless.

Vintage DIY Fur Vest and Muff Outfit

Finally, we had a decent sunny day last Friday.

Perfect time to rock out my DIY vintage fur vest and fur muff.

I just can't bring myself to wearing fur out in the rain. Which in Vancouver is 90% if the time a fur piece is actually needed.

So whenever a cold and sunny day presents itself, I jump on it without hesitation.

I completed the outfit with a lot of layers. It's extremely cold still after all.

The amazing thing about maxi skirt for the winter, is that you can layer it over many layers of tights.

I'm quite happy with this DIY streak I have going on.

Busy hands lead to a sharp mind. What? You have never heard of that saying before? Well, you have now.
