Purse appreciation LV Monogram Multicolor Sologne

Monday, brain dead, especially since I had to work over the weekend.

Today's post is just going to be short and sweet.

I didn't realize this, but I wore the same purse with all my outfits last week.

How did that happen. Probably somewhat due to extreme laziness.

But mostly because this purse really just went with everything! The fact that it's white with multicolor monograms just made it tie in with everything.

This style is discontinued and you can only find them via designer consignment stores now, for cheaper! I just love to scour consignment stores for the unique items that once was and will never be again.

Check out these online designer consignment stores if you want your own Sologne

Ann's Fabulous Finds
Yoogi's Closet
Malleries
Portero Luxury

However, there are some other options, if being splashed with logos and brands is not really your thing.

RALPH LAUREN Laser-Cut Calfskin Cross-Body

Have fun shopping :)

Dress hemming DIY, Prada and Suspenders

Happy Monday!!! I hope most of you are cozy at home enjoying the last stat before you set out to start "real life" again.

I am at work already. Don't feel too bad for me though, I didn't have to start that early.

It's already been a pretty productive start to the year.

We made our first video! It can also be found at the right hand column. That's where all the future videos will eventually rest.



The footage for the opening sequence was shot awhile ago. Finally, we had the right topic and the video was born!

It's a tutorial video on how to hem a dress without cutting and sewing. I am pretty lazy when it comes to altering clothing. I also don't like to make permanent changes; therefore, I try to look for the easiest possible way to change something that doesn't actually require me to do anything complicated. I don't even own a sewing machine anyway.

Hope you guys enjoyed the video. The end result of my DIY hemming accompanied me to a wonderful day at Granville Island.

It was a brisk and cloudy day. Once again, this outfit is mostly "sponsored" by Talize. The velvet jacket, scarf and what's underneath are all from Talize. The suspender tights are from Urban Outfitter. Though I don't think they sell them anymore. But ASOS still has them. I should get myself another black pair and make sure I don't rip them this time. The shoes are by Rocket Dog.

I love the purse! I got it from Ann's Fabulous Finds. This amazing designer consignment store ran by wonderful people!

The briskness finally got to me, need to head inside to warm up. Hmmm, Mint Mocca!

Also a great opportunity to reveal the dress that I hemmed without sewing!! I absolutely love the way it looks, especially paired with the wide flower belt I got from one of my favourite local boutiques Gentille Alouette

Good, now I am warm enough to brave the outside without the protective layers.
