[DIY] Pearl Collar

This is an well as a DIY. I found this shirt at good old Value Village. Although it isn't photographed,  the back is my favourite! I added all the pearls on the collar. It's not the greatest, but it's good enough for doing it myself. I'm also wearing the new lipstick, Media, that my brother got me for Christmas.

[FASHION] Layers

I simply adore this idea and look. Loose fitting button up, half tucked into a printed skirt or pair of shorts. It gives a very interesting look. I really want to attempt this look somehow someday...

[OUTFIT] The Snow Has Fallen!

There was practically no snow here right up until Christmas day! We had to drive to Belleville in a huge storm. Now it looks like there's been snow here all along. We got our white Christmas in the end. This is the new sweater I got for Christmas. I love it so much! It's a little bit itchy, but I don't really mind. I like the look of it too much.

[VIDEO] Boxing Day and Hair

A friend of mine on Facebook had a few questions, so I answered them in a video! Take a look!

[ETC] Christmas!

Here's a quick look at some of the gifts I got for Christmas! I also got a nice sweater and shirt, but will post those later. My mom was so excited about the Tiffany earrings I got her! I'm so glad she liked them.

[OUTFIT] Slightly Pirate Like?

Decided I'd put one more outfit together before heading back to my hometown for the holidays. Which happens tomorrow! And I'm really extra super excited for it! Anyway, this outfit kind of came together in my head. I didn't think it would work out, but it's not too bad. As the title says, I find it to be slightly pirate like, but not in a bad way. Not much photo alterations this time haha, just a simple look.

Bustier - Forever21
Shorts - Aritzia
Boots - Vintage

[VIDEO] Tumblr Questions - ANSWERED

I sent a message out to my Tumblr followers asking them to ask me questions. I made a video for the first 5 questions I was asked. Here are my answers! 

Don't mind my double chin....haha

[OUTFIT] Green Plaid and Blue

I've finally found a good wall to take photos on! I have to move some furniture though, but I think it's worth it. Nice bare wall! I tried to do my eyeliner slightly differently. Instead of bringing it in all the way to the tear duct, I stop about half way. It give a whole different effect. I think I'll have to do it more often. After the photos I took today, you may notice a new banner! Feedback would be gladly appreciated :)

Flannel - Aritzia
Dress - Topshop
Shoes - Steve Madden

[OUTFIT] Crouching...Leopard?

Lots of posts lately, which is pretty exciting! I'm thinking of maybe starting up a Facebook page for my blog, thoughts? Anyway, I'm waiting for a couple of my friends to come over, and thought I'd share with you what I'm wearing tonight. Nothing fancy, although this has to be my favourite shirt! Costs a fortune to get it cleaned, so I can only wear it every once in a while.

Suede Fringe Shirt - Kate Moss for Topshop
Riding Pants - American Apparel
Wedges - Forever21

[ETC] Recreating an Ad

My friend Jamie had to recreate an advertisement for a project at school. She's a photography student and takes marvellous photos! Please! Check out her Flickr.

This is the Cargo ad from a magazine.

And this is the reproduction. Getting the fingers and the hair right was so frustrating! haha Apparently I couldn't figure it out. Still though, I think they're pretty gosh darn similar!

[ETC] Christmas Wish List

This! Is my Christmas Wish List. As for the bangle, I tried one on at Holts that was black and silver, and had a bit of an oval shape. It fit my wrist perfectly! There is also the point that I would really love to get a new lens for my camera to be able to take better street style and fashion photography. That is to be discussed more in detail with my father and brother to figure out which one would work best.

I looove this embellished top from Topshop. I think it would be lovely for New Years! We'll see...

[BEAUTY] Lipstick

As some people may know, even though I don't wear lipstick every day, I still love it! I thought I'd share my oh so extensive (not) lipstick collection of mine.

1. Viva Glam Gaga - MAC
2. Rouge Volupte 17 - YSL
3. Rouge Volupte 11 - YSL
4. Brighton Rock - Lips by Topshop
5. 080 Coral - Revlon
6. 355 Tempt - Covergirl

I know I've posted a lot of looks recently with the furry vest, but I find it can give any outfit a little extra umph! And it's a great layer to have under a jacket on those colder days. It looks like in dancing with myself hehe. I just wanted the braid running into each other effect.

[FASHION] Layers

I recently reblogged this on my Tumblr, and I just think this combination is stunning! The knit with the denim, and the colours work so well together...of course...I needed to share.

[MUSIC] Buy You a Drank & Miss Officer - A+O

My friend Alex Harea hosted a matinee yesterday. There was some great music and treats! For one of his songs, he paired up with Owen and gave it a bit of a hip hop/rap twist. I thought it sounded great! Take a listen...

If you wanted to check out one of these matinees, Harea will be having one on the first Sunday of every month at the Trinity United Church on Maitland Ave, in Ottawa. There is no charge, but donations are accepted to go towards the Trinity Jubilee Foundation.

[OUTFIT] Last of City Downtown

As mentioned in the previous post, our store at school City Downtown will have it's final day on Friday. Everything in the store will be 50-70% off! Besides the necklace, I also got myself another blouse. A sort of snake skin print? But not really? Either way it's a fun top.

[ACCESSORIES] Circus-y Flag Necklace

City Downtown is coming to an end! So the sales have began. I've wanted this necklace from the beginning! We had two of them, and there was the one left for me! I was so glad we still had it, I would have been regretful for not getting it. The necklace is made by a company called Its your Life, and they make lots of wonderful vintage inspired pieces! I love this necklace because it's not too BAM! but it's still fun.
