Mixing Prints: Happy Canadian Thanksgiving






Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone!

A rare appearance, the outside of my humble abode.

Isn't this the cutest house ever!?

Actually, I am only wishing that it is mine. It has been purchased by a developer and is awaiting its fate to be converted to executive townhomes. Part of "growing up" for the city.

Even though I am sad to see this house get demolished, I am thankful that I was able to capture its glory one final time.

Since it is Thanksgiving, this year more than ever is a year I would like to give thanks to all the people in my life and all the experiences I have been through.

At the beginning of the year, I almost stopped blogging. However, thanks to my amazing readers, I got out of my slump and kept on keeping on.

Aside from all cliche of growth and whatnot, I really like to say that I am optimistic for what life may bring.

I live in such an amazing time, blessed with so much.

Being surrounded by opportunity to embrace fashion and beautiful things.

How to wear Crop Top for Fall

It's all about the rest of the outfit really.






I bought this dress from ShopBop.

I have been obsessed with long sleeved maxi dresses for awhile now. They are definitely the ultimate comfort item that also makes an outfit with the simple addition of a jacket.

However, this dress didn't really fit me the way I was expecting. Perhaps it's because my torso is kind of short?

In a moment of daring impulse, I cut the dress in half.

It actually turned out well!

With the addition of a blazer, I was ready for business.

These past few days in Vancouver have been unseasonably warm as well. So frolicking around in a cropped 2 piece is perfectly acceptable.

Of course being the wuss that I am, I still wore some stockings.

This might just be my go to outfit for this season yet.

Eshakti Made to Measure Dresses






Recently, I had the pleasure to review a great website that provided made to measure service on the vast array of dresses they offered.

eShakti is a women's wear website that made dresses based on your measurements.


The ordering process is very simple, you can either choose to order one of the preset sizes, or input your own measurements. Dictate the length of the garment, add or remove pockets. You can also change the design of the sleeves! A modest $7 fee is charged for custom orders.

This checkered dress is what I decided to review.

The cut and design makes it an ideal dress for the office.

The quality of the garment is very nice. Seams are lined up well and material is sturdy.

If you need something that fits to the T, and want some control in the design of the garment, do check out eShakti.

They have super fun skirts as well.


If you are going to pay over $70 for a dress, might as well make sure it fits you well.
