70's Floral with 70's Hair

As much as I miss my red hair, I do appreciate how much healthier my hair has gotten ever since I dyed it back black.

It's a sweet spot right now when the old red is peaking through from under the black dye. At least it's not completely gone right away.

From the daily abuse I have done to my hair, I was in desperate need of a conditioning treatment.

Good thing an old friend of mine just started at a new salon that offers that. If you live in Vancouver, I would definitely urge you to check out the Heartbreaker Salon. For $25, you can get an amazing conditioning treatment while reading some cat books and enjoying a beer. As for Kimiko, she will take care of ya. Check out her Instagram Profiile, @kimikostella.

She finished my cut and treatment with fun voluminous curls.

Check out the before and after.

Wow my hair was long.

The curls went great with my vintage floral shirt so I had to capture the look.

It was another sunny day thankfully. But too bad it's still so cold!

Sometimes though, it's hard to cover up such an awesome shirt with a jacket.

Too bad those flames don't really keep me warm.

Posing in Vintage

Another year already.

Happy Birthday to me today. Why does 28 sound so much older than 27?

Today, is also the birth of something else. Of a new "identity" of sorts, or more appropriately, the evolution into the right identity. I will be migrating to a new web space very soon. The website it function now and will continue to be in conjuncture to this current one. But after I have all the technical things figured out, the two sites will be merged into one.

My new website will be called Posing in Vintage. As this year went by, I realized that my true love for fashion stemmed from my love for thrift and vintage shopping.

Reviewing my outfit posts has made it apparent to me that 95% of my outfit incorporates at least one piece of vintage/thrift item. Thus I find myself almost always be Posing in Vintage.

It describes me in a more apt way.

This blog has brought me on such a journey, it made me come into my own sense of style and with it, the new name.

Here to welcome the new site, another self portrait shoot of me, posing in vintage.

Lace has always elicited in me a sense of nostalgia.


I kept all the colours muted in this post to especially show off the red lip.

The sheerness of the back and the skirt adds another dimension of mystery.

I look forward to many more great years and even more great outfits.
