Silk Obakki Floral Kimono

Noticing a trend? I love kimonos, they are the "it" item in my closet right now.

For this spring, it is a guarantee that I will reach for them time and time again.

The feeling of being hugged by amazing fabrics of the finest silk is an incredible feeling. This whole outfit is from Obakki. The craftsmanship of the garment is incredible.

Sometimes, after a long week, all you need is walk around town. Especially when the maxi skirt offers so much movement with each step I take.

Soon, we happen upon this amazing graffiti wall. The colours are the most amazing shades of pink.

Artistry is found all around us.

The innocent whimsy of the girl with the dandelion makes me yearn for summer.

I wish I too can release a flurry of life with the release of one breath.

Lazy weekend chilling

Lazy weekend.

Today's outfit is pretty special.

Here are the goods.

Diesel Moscow boy sheerling vest, sheerling vest, lace half gloves from forever21, burger socks from urban outfitters

This Diesel Moscow Boy green Shearling vest was a thrifted treasure. I found it at the YWCA thrift store. The original tags were still on there, it didn't feel like it was ever worn either.

Also, I have decided to show you guys a different perspective of my apartment.

The couch.

I forgot how effect the horizontal perspective can show off an outfit. As you get the full view of the vest, the forever21 tank top, Fidelity jeans, forever21 half lace gloves as well as these amazing oakley sunglasses, even my socks made it in.

But what to do on this lazy day! Oh I know! My alter ego needs me to save the world.

Save the world from where I sit of course.

Blankets adds some extra comfort.

This vest is absolutely amazing! I almost wish it would stay colder so I would be able to wear it more often.


Happy April Fool's everyone, I hope you all enjoyed this special men's wear edition.

Mustard kimono

As promised, here is the reveal of the entire mustard outfit.

Sorry I made you guys wait an extra day. Those suspender tights needed to be shared first.

So we remember this from 2 posts ago.

What I forgot to mention was the origin of these 2 Elsa Peretti open heart sterling charms.

They are 2 of my most valuable thrift finds. I got them at the Value Village in Burnaby. Each were only $10.00. Hard to believe I actually contemplated whether I should get both of them. Good thing I did, or else I would be kicking myself everyday.

Here is the outfit!

Wilfred Silk top from Aritzia

Woven maxi skirt from Talize

Aldo clogs

Cambridge Satchel Co bright orange Fluoro purse from Holt Renfrew

Faux foxtail from Front and Company


I think these harvest colours go so well together. There is something about an understated outfit that combines to harmoniously.

I chose to add pops of colour with my accessories, and that included these 2 hair flowers from H&M.

I love how fun these sleeves are. Added drapey volume gets me everytime, it's all style and no bulk.

My favourite thing, this kimono is totally beltable and it changes the whole look. Pieces that can be worn in multiple ways maximizes bang for the dollar.

Season appropriate outfits are a thing of the past. As I browse other blogs, I see that fashion envelopes are being stretched to the max.

Colours, pattern and texture show up year around. Even though this outfit reminds of golden bushels of grain during an autumn harvest it's also ever so appropriate for the spring time. The seasonality is show cased via the light weight and flowiness of the fabrics.

Now if it will just stop raining.
