Waiting for spring to come

Tis mid March already and the dreaded spring daylight savings time has come and gone.

However, the erratic weather has not made leaving winter an easy process.

It almost as if Vancouver is undecided, just last week we had a day that was sunny, hailing, raining, cloudy and sleeting and back to sunny again.
I can’t wait to retire my winter coat, but right now, it is the only thing keeping me from freezing to death.

From the trends on the streets, looks like this spring will be a very bright, cheery and flowery one; which is great news to me.
I am a year round psychedelic in terms of the way I dress; does this mean I will finally be able to blend in for once?

Pause and think… Well since the weather is protesting plumage, why not celebrate with what I am hoping is the last few days to dress in fur.

We were blessed with erratic weather once again this past weekend. I am willing to put up with it if it means amazing sun sets at dusk time.
My Obakki over coat is doing its job to keep me warm. Though I could have worn thicker tights.

My favourite thing about colder weather is the fact that I can be draped in luxurious fur. This fur collar is really one of my most favourite Salvation Army find.

The H&M hair flower and the hair feathers from Little Burgundy adds a nice touch to the whole look.

I like how I am accented by three different colour of fur in this outfit. Somehow, they work harmoniously well together. The orange sheen on foxy mage purse, the multi tonal brown hue of the boot add ons and the rich auburn of the fur collar all tie in with each other.

For a second, I am mesmerized by the beauty of the setting sun. What is it about earth colours. This outfit was pulled for me by the forces of nature.

Time for me to go perhaps, as should winter, so a cycle can begin anew with the birth of spring.

Flowers

Where I come from, it is called the city of flowers. The mild weather all year round has made it an ideal place for plants to grow. Though I have since departed my birth place, but the flowers have always followed me.This time, it is in the form of this gorgeous dress from Gentille Alouette.

I practically live in cowboy boots. What a great way to wear something so masculine with something ever so feminine. This pair is vintage and a gift from a friend.

This is a fun summer dress. Maybe a little formal for everyday wear. But I don't follow rules.Jasmine Zhu wearing Convertible floral tube dress purchased at Gentille Alouette, Vintage Fashion, Thrift Fashion, Street Style, Style

Gentille Alouette is a beautiful boutique in the historical Gastown of Vancouver, BC. I have passed by many times outside of their business hours. The window display is unique and captivating. I have always wanted to go in. Finally, during one of my trips wondering around town, I remembered that this little store is on Carrall street. The visit proved to be fruitful. Just my luck the owner, Eliza Lau, was in. Her taste matches mine almost exactly.

She has many unique feather accessories, as well as pieces designed by past participants of Project Runway Canada.

Well worth anyone's time of day.
