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.

Power pants, fur and leather

Sometimes, even when you are fully dressed, you feel half dressed.

I think I am ready to head out of the door now.

Oh wait, got to put up my hair first.

Yay road trip to Seattle!

Back to true poser fashion.

I love how they are all different shades of brown. But because of the different texture. It makes everything so interesting.

This is one of my favourite outfits. Not the easiest to wear due to the shoes. But damn does it have impact.

What makes me so happy is the fact most of this outfit is composed of thrift finds.

The fur collar was from the Value Village Hastings location. The collar is super versatile, can be clipped on to any jacket or coat to add that extra warmth and hmph.

The leather jacket, purse and the pirate shirt were from Community Thrift and Vintage.

I love this purse, I actually acquired her not too long ago. I love how they go so well together.

The foxtail looks like it was made for this purse. The tail was from Front and Company.

These American Apparel Disco pants are amazing! It just sucks everything in! I actually have them in Silver and Blue as well.

Last but not least at these shoes. They were a travel buy. During my trip to Montreal in the summer, my girls and I happened upon this amazing shoe boutique in old Montreal. The store was just racks and racks of shoes ranging from size 5 and up. Size FIVE!!! I am usually 5 or 5.5 in heels, which I can never really find here for some reason. I was so happy and ended up buying three pairs of shoes. This fierce little number was amongs that haul. Very satisfied.

With our bellies filled with Crab Pot I can finally head home happy.

Next time, must seek out the thrift stores in Seattle as well.
