Eco Fashion:: Conscious Roses






I found this rose bush on the side of a street I drove by frequently.

Call it kissmet, I just so happened to have a shirt that matched it perfectly.


What's even more serendipitous, the shirt is from a previous H&M Conscious collection that I found at a thrift store.


Tonight, H&M is kicking off Eco Fashion Week edition 9 with another conscious collection.



I can't wait to see what the new collection has to offer.



I am sure it will be just as rosy.




Check out the fabulous show schedule for Eco Fashion Week Edition 9

Outfit: Thrifted H&M Conscious collection rose top
Rachel Roy pants from Mine and Yours
Mackage leather jacket from Aritzia
Second hand Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 in Damier Azure print

Happy New Year:: Thrifted Outfit



Happy New Year everyone. 2015 feels completed different from 2014. I, for one, have been hit with a surge of energy. Being sluggish was so one year ago.

However, to be fair, I was working on my other passion all year last year. Perhaps I will be sharing that with you all soon.

To kick off this year, I decided to chose quite a "boring" outfit.

All throughout last year, I found my personal style maturing slightly. Even when I go shopping I was inexplicably drawn to more professional cuts and fabrics.

Things that would stand the test of time.

Another reason I quite like this outfit is because it's 95% thrifted! All from my favourite thrift store Talize. Lucky me, all the items were another 50% off.

The entire outfit came to a whopping $20. I could probably only buy one sleeve of this Banana Republic cardigan with $20.

Venture out to your local thrift store even if you have never been before. Save yourself some money, as well as the environment.

Happy 2015!

Vintage Body Suit :: How to Style

I love the combination of almost inappropriate hemline and leggings.

The best season to wear this is from Fall to Winter.

I have waited forever to wear this vintage body suit ever since I styled it for the Thrift Chic Challenge I participated in.

The almost swimsuit level body suit looks great down the runway, but down the freeway, it will no fly.

That is solved simply by layering leggings underneath.

Finished with a jacket and scarf and purse. It is quite possibly the perfect fall outfit.

One great way to wear a lot of different pattern is to keep everything in the same color pallet.

It keeps everything muted, even though I am layering python over floral of paisley.

This faux python jacket is my favourite purchase for this season. Not your typical fall color, but the texture and shape adds some luxury to any outfit.

Shop the look

I got the body suit from my local Value Village. Often that's where you can find the most amazing one of a kind pieces. Give it a try. While you are at it, maybe you can also find a fur collar?

Stay tuned for more Fall looks.
