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.

Almond milk and silky flow

What is it about liquid forms of solid items??

I love easy consumption. The less I have to do to actually get something into my stomach the more I will like that thing.

Well, it's probably not always the case.

But in this instance of almond vs almond milk, the liquid form wins hands down.

with out further adieu, my almond milk inspired outfit..

One week ago, March 2nd to 3rd, Obakki had their warehouse sale again. I can never resist designer items at non-designer pricing.

I scored many amazing items. This silk shirt and sheer maxi skirt are amongst them.

Since we are still in transition of the seasons, these Aldo clogs are the perfect foot wear. They are actually really warm, yet doesn't really feel too wintry because the back is open.

This is an effortless outfit, so comfortable to wear and drapes so nicely. Low maintenance and comfortable.

The colours definitely remind me of almonds and the delicious liquid, even the flowy skirt reminds me of the free flowing liquid when poured out of the carton.

Thus, here, a moment captured in eternity.

Only in motion, can the beauty of this skirt truly be captured in full.

Current Obsessions

Whew what a week has it been.

Sorry for the lack of posts last week. I have been fairly busy at work, training has just commenced for my new project.

But enough about that.

To help me get through last week, these three things were crucial. You could say I am somewhat obsessed with them.

First is Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook.

After three weeks of trying, I have finally landed on the top spot amongst my other much more skilled friends.

Second is almond milk.

I love the nutty but subtly sweet flavour of this cool liquid. I also appreciate the extra injection of calcium it provides me as well.

Finally, I am obsessed with watching Youtube hair tutorials! The girls that make them are absolutely amazing! After getting the ideas from the following 2 videos, My hair has never turned our better.

First, I learned how to curl my hair properly from this video.


Her channel is not really purely dedicated to hair tutorials, there are many fun videos about fashion and shopping. Check The Coolios out.

Second, I got the idea for this hair style from this video.


Her channel is purely dedicated to hair tutorials. 3X haha is this young and cute girl that is amazingly creative when it comes to hair. I have tried out 2 of her hair styles already, and loved both of them.

Even though the outcome of my hair really looks nothing like either of their tutorials, I am still happy to have expanded my horizon of self grooming.

The curls ended up staying all day, which never happens pre-hair-tutorials. It's like I am having an ultra amazing hair day.

Alas, this is a fashion blog, I have decided to pull 2 outfits inspired by my first two obsessions to go with my self assumed "amazing" hair day.

First outfit is inspired by Bejeweled Blitz.

I love all jewel tones, and I have the perfect dress to embody them all.

This rainbow sequence dress is from H&M.

I chose to go gold on gold with this Aldo clutch.

I love how playful it is, and just so happens I have shoes that matched it exactly. I don't remember where I got these vintage rainbow flats, I want to say Talize.

As if the outfit is not interesting enough already, I have decided on these tights. They are from Aldo as well, I just love the chain link back seam.

One outfit down, one more to go.

Stay tuned to see the almond milk inspired outfit in the next entry.
