Yellow on Yellow at the Port

Sometimes, an outfit is completely born by accident.

I usually mix my colours, evident in all my other posts.

But on one particular day, I just needed to quickly run out so I thru on my One Teaspoon yellow kimono and grabbed my Gucci and headed out. In my trusted elevator mirror, I was struck by how well the yellow and yellow worked together.

Thus, a new outfit is born. Accidentally.

The white lace, becomes the perfect pedestal to show off the brightness of the yellow.

I started to work in BC's oldest municipality recently. I love a location that is marred by history. Coming from a country with one of the oldest civilizations in the world, North America, by comparison seems like a baby.

Perhaps that's why I am drawn to things of vintage.

Since the setting feels so artistic, I have decided to put some artistic spins on my usual photos. Hope you all enjoy.

Kiss of the Golden Sun

The weather gods have been extremely generous last week, until the weekend that is.

I still had enough time to go traipse around in my new maxi statement dress.

I have this dress in two colours.

I originally only knew of the dark version until I visited the websites that carried the dresses.

You can also get it here.

At the time, the dark version was only available in L, but the white version was available in all three sizes.

Knowing that the large may not fit as well as a medium and small I decided to order both dresses. The dark in a Large and the white in a Small and hoped for the best.

They both arrived super fast.

I am so glad I ordered them in both colours because even though they are the same dress, the colour difference dramatically changes the entire look.

I will do a side by side shoot in the future.

I love how this dress is short in the front, adding some sex appeal to a sweet print.

The only criticism I have is that I have to wear this dress with a belt. Perhaps it's the way it's cut, perhaps it's the shape of my body, if I don't cinch at the waist, the whole thing looks much more frumpy.

But my trusted flower belt from Gentille Alouette does the trick very well.

I also love clothing that takes on a life of their own when I move around.

The dress seem to be dancing with me.

The glow of the setting sun highlighting my outline makes my heart jump for the joy that it will be summer very soon.

That means, the dress can be worn without the accompaniment of these tights.

Who am I kidding, I will probably live in these tights through out summer.
