New Years Lookbook

New Years is just around the corner with only a few days left, so I thought I would bring you some outfit inspiration to ring in the new year! As many of us do, I love wearing sparkly clothes on New Years ! I was lucky enough to find some amazing pieces this year starting with this burgundy sparkly matching set from Forever 21. I Picked it up on Black Friday and I knew it was the perfect piece for New Year. What makes it more exciting is that its  also something I could wear throughout the year. I wore the set with a short burgundy (Faux) fur shawl which I think gave the look a more 1970's feel to it! Another one of my favourite pieces is the silver sequin dress, I picked it up from Zara back in the fall and I've saved it for this time of year because its perfection !!!  I Hope I get more occasions to wear it because its such a showstopper ! I love the way it looks layered over a (short sleeved) turtleneck and  with some white boots! I added some big white circle earrings to give the look a more 1960's vibe! Last but not least there is the fringe dress!  I found this dress at the thrift store for like $13, which for the thrift store its a bit pricey... but I thought it was so much fun that I couldn't pass it up!  For extra warmth I grabbed a big white (Faux) fur shawl and added a pearl necklace for a feminine touch!  I hope you like the looks !  if you want to see them in action check out the video below! And of course I hope you have an amazing new year!!

Christmas Lookbook 2018

It's the most wonderful time of the year! and of course our outfits have to be perfect! This year I am sharing three different looks varying from casual to fancy depending on your mood or festive occasion!  Starting with the most dressed up of the three, the red dress. Everyone always saying you need a little black dress in your closet, well the same can be said about a classic red dress. This dress from Metisu is my favourite !  I love the 1950's style silhouette  and the detail draping over the shoulders. It makes me feel like I'm going to the theater or the ballet (OK a little dressed up, but can we all agree that we should wear gowns to these types of performances ?) This dress is also perfect for any big fancy holiday party you might be attending, especially when paired with these heels. I opted for some smaller heels because I think it adds to the vintage vibe of the outfit.
For the second look, you may or may not believe be but this used to be my dress when I was 7!  LOL  it used to be long but I recently had it hemmed so that it would be a bit shorter (for a more 60's vibe.) I layered it over a cream turtleneck from le chateau and added some yellow tights and a matching hat. I also had to incorporate one of my favourite new jewellery pieces! This massive heart shaped locket that I found at an antique market! It's technically a music box so when you open it it plays music.
For the final look I am wearing a colourful green, red and white dress from Shein. It has a sort of  1960's "space-age" feel to it especially when paired with these silver shoes. These shoes are one of my latest purchases, they are from Forever 21 and perfect for this time of year! I also added some red tights to make it a bit more festive.  I hope you guys like these looks, let me know which look is your favourite.
