We Love Colors

I am definitely no stranger to colors!

Just the other day I realized I really don't have a little black dress. Colors are such an important part of our everyday lives, it's in everything we do.

Why not celebrate them by embracing them in our wardrobe?

www.welovecolors.com know exactly what it means to celebrate all facets of life by capturing them in vivacious items of clothing.

I can't wait to "paint my legs" and go running.

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.

The Night, Concrete and Feathers

Sometimes, inspiration comes when you are rummaging through your accessory drawer. These are some old favourites and new additions. I think they went together beautifully.

Feather hair comb, dropping form design, Chanel inspired gold chain quilted cross body, hot topic tights, banana republic embroidered floral jacket, Street Style

Necklace, second hand from The Spree

Tights from Hot Topic in Bellis Fair Mall

Embroidered floral jacket from Banana Republic purchased from Talize

Vintage Fashion, Thrift Fashion, Street Style, Style, Jasmine wearing, Chanel inspired golden quilted tassel purse gold chain, feather hair piece by dropping forms design, second hand wood and metal and plastic chunky statement necklace, Street StyleThe hair piece is absolutely stunning. The artist's attention to detail is amazing. Each element is expertly combined. This particular comb blends in well with my hair. Though I also want some with different colours that would stand out. It is a super fun piece that adds a touch of whimsical to any outfit. It can also be a great steam punk accessory.


The combination of woods, plastic and metal on the chunky necklace is amazing. The colour combination makes me feel like fall. But the gold flecks resonates with a clear fall day. I love clear sunny fall days.

It is not something to be worn out without solid bottoms. But I did not want to replace those tights with solid leggings. Instead, I decided to layer the look with a black velvet tube top that I worn as a skirt. It adds more texture to the outfit as well.


These tights are super fun. I saw them at Hot Topic during a recent Seattle trip. The store was littered with Twilight posters and reminded me ever so of that South Park episode.


Talize rarely does me wrong. Every trip brings delightful finds. These boots are no different. I really like the suede and the wedge heel. Adding height and preserving comfort.

I had no idea Banana Republic made such a colourful line. The three quarter sleeves makes it a good spring and fall transition jacket. The golden thread used to embroider the flowers is the cherry on top of this fun outfit finisher.

The concrete juxtaposes this whole outfit. The soft and feminine shape and texture of the top contrasts nicely to the texture of the concrete wall. This shoot was all about contrasts.

The night engulfs the light of day.

When the party has faded away.

In the jungle of concretes, all I have are my feathers.

The gold flecks clings to life.

Hoping for the sun to shine.
