All that glitter

Here are the items I bought from the Chosen Ones Vintage Sale covered by in my last post.

It's funny, I have come to the realization that what I buy is heavily dictated by what I happen to be wearing the day I go shopping.

That day, I happen to be wearing these amazing pieces of accessories.

Dropping for design, dropping form design feather hair comb, sparkle and fade gold tassle shorts, sparkle and fade from urban outfitter, vintage gold scale elastice belt, multistrand forever 21 gold and pearl necklace, gold necklaces, gold accesories, feather hair comb

The feather hair comb is still one of my most prized possessions. First seen here.

It goes really well with gold flecked items. Such as these amazing Sparkle and Fade shorts.

The rest of the accessories just naturally fell into place. Like these 2 forever21 necklaces.

And this fabulous golden belt. It was a gift from my boyfriend's mother.

I have been wanting a pure gold belt for a while now.

The elasticity of the belt allows me wear it on my hip as well as on my waist, and it finishes my outfit perfectly.

Time to share what I bought at the Chosen Ones Vintage sale with you guys. Just so happens, they can totally be accessorized using these exact same accessories.

These dresses can easily be styled in many different ways.

Dresses are also extremely easy to wear and you instantly look very pulled together with little effort.

I highly recommend checking out these types of sales, not only are they easy on your wallet, you will also find one of a kind pieces that you know no one else has.

The Chosen Ones Vintage Sale

The best part of having ample sweets for your birthday party is the fact that the next day, they can be eaten as breakfast.

These The Sugah Shack cupcakes taste just as good even the day after.

Yumm!

One problem though, they are seriously too cute to eat.

After food, it's time for my favourite pass-time of all time! SHOPPING!

Graciously, Vancity Buzz informed me of the Chosen Ones Vintage Sale at the Waldorf hotel.

This vintage sale is organized by Daniel Fazio, the Director of Brand & Design at the Waldorf. Collections of clothing are brought together from vintage stores and local designers all over Vancouver. This sale actually happens every few months, and it is always at the Waldorf.

I am so glad I found out about it.

Excitement grew as I approach the destination. Inside, I am greeted by smiles and the familiar smells. Then, racks and racks of wonderful vintage finds just waiting for me to pluck, like ripened fruits hanging from fashion trees.

I can't wait to get started.

My arms were quickly filled with amazing items that I could not wait to try on.

This is a cash only sale, thus I was not able to take everything with me. Amongst them, I was the saddest to see these two items go.

First is this amazing suede cowgirl fringe jacket.

Second is this double breasted fur trimmed full length coat.

The sweetness of progressing in age

Another year in the bag, time surely does fly when fun is to be had.

I must count my blessings as I am surrounded my amazing individuals in my life.

Saturday night, close friends gathered and counted down the seconds to my birthday.

I want to thank each and everyone of you for making me feel so filled with love.

This birthday was extra sweet! Because I had two talented pastry chefs make me birthday goodies.

Nikikiu Sweet Kreantions, Tiffany and Co Box cake, Birthday cake, Tiffany and Co birthday cake, Sugah Shack cup cakes, Sugah Shack red velvet cupcakes, red velvet cup cakes, Cat cup cakes, creative sweets.

The first is a birthday cake shaped in the iconic Tiffany and Co box, in the iconic colour with that iconic bow!

This was a surprise actually, I had no idea this was coming. It is made by the delicate and talented hand of the cake artist behind Nikikiu's Sweet Kreations. I cannot get over how amazingly detailed fondant work can be. The cake also tasted really good! Sometimes, a good slice of rich chocolate cake is all you want, and this is just the chocolate cake I want!

The second is a litter of surprises!! Cats that is!!

Aren't they adorable!?!? Plopped over the red velvet (which is my favourite by the way) cupcakes like cats plopped over pillows!!!

They are made by my dear friend and creator of The Sugah Shack. I first had a taste of her Darth Vader ones at another friend's birthday. I was hooked!! I love how her delicate touch makes the perfect balance of flavours! The cake is moist and not too sweet.

She is also amazingly creative. I could not have dreamt that I will be getting 3D cats that looked so playful and adorable. Contact her if you need that sweet cherry on top to make any even that much more amazing.
