Infinity Scarf :: Autumn Must Have

The ever ending sunny days are now a distant memory. Good thing I was able to stack up some photo shoots while the going was good.

Today is also #throwbackthuursday and I am throwing back with my favourite infinity scarf in the whole wide world.

This amazing piece instantly gives anything an immediate autumn look. But before then, lets reminisce a little about those beautiful sunny days we used to have.

Vancouver always looks so glorious in the sun.

Today's hand bling is thanks to FreedomGen.com. They have the cutest knuckle rings and delicate feminine baubles to bedazzle your hands.

Check them out on Facebook and Instagram as well for updates. The pricing is amazingly reasonable, you can mix and match to create dynamic looks at a steal.

Perfect for accenting what you already have, or be amazing as standouts on their own.

The teapot ring accented by FreedomGen knuckle rings makes this whole look feel very picnic-y.

With this scarf, the look quickly goes from summer to fall.

I guess another 180 days until this comes back.

Have fun shopping for some infinity scarves, or search on your closet for your own regular scarf and just sew the ends together.

Creative Styling :: Wearing a Shirt Backwards

As you know, I have been taking my photos myself since I bought my own camera.

It proved more challenging than I thought at first. This is what happens when you use the remote.

It ends up in the photo because I have to aim it high towards the camera. I also have to press it many times, so my face ends up looking slightly perturbed.

Good thing those remotes were cheap, I'm going back to self timers for sure.

Let get back on track though, this post is about fearlessness.

Be not afraid to wear something in a different way. I got this Robert Rodriguez shirt from Buffalo Exchange when I went to LA.

I loved the color and the raw silk fabric.

However, after wearing it once, I couldn't handle it anymore.

It feels like it's slowly trying to choke me to death.

Maybe not to death, but it's très uncomfortable. I tried to re-sell it at a consignment shop, but no one else wanted it either. Probably for the exact reason I experienced.

The back of the shirt though, is amazing.

So one day, I just decided to turn it around.

Ever since then, I never looked back. I no longer had to, the back is now the front.

I absolutely love this shirt now. The perfect fall accent. But really it can be worn all year round. I am glad it didn't end up selling and gave me a second chance to discover its full potential.
