Fuzzy in peach

Hi lovelies, school craziness is finally over and I can start blogging regularly again! As you can see, there's been a slight change in the setting of my photos as mother nature has surprised us with a few snow storms this month.. But hey it's Canada so what's new really?

I wore this outfit to work the other day and got so many compliments about my peach cashmere blazer!  Little did they know that it was thrifted and cost me under $10! I love that the blazer is super comfy but still has a its sophisticated appeal. I paired it with a graphic tee and a simple charcoal-grey midi skirt for a semi-casual sophisticated look!

The plaid dress: 3 looks

Plaid dress: Brandy Melville 
As if I didn't own enough plaid pieces, I recently added this great dress to my wardrobe and I am loving it for fall layering!  Here's my take on 3 ways to style this dress: 

Look 1: For this first look, I kept it simple by pairing the dress with black thigh highs and my leather jacket. It's the school girl meets rocker chick. 

 | Leather Jacket & Thigh highs: H&M | Boots: Doc Martens |

Look 2: What's great about dresses is that you can also use them as skirts so it's a 2 in 1 deal! I wore my "WTF" graphic tee and my neon jewelled necklace for a pop of colour. Really digging the pops of neon for fall.

Look 3:  A little sporty twist to the plaid dress. I wore my black stripe detail sweater and layered two of my most versatile necklaces to create a sporty chic ensemble. 

Sweater: Forever 21

All for velvet this season

| Velvet pants & Leather jacket: H&M |

|Cut-out shoes: Capezio (Jeffrey Campbell's Melina)|

Velvet is having a comeback this season and it screams glamour! I never thought I would ever be caught wearing velvet pants but hey, I seem to be trying something new a lot lately so why not. 

3 key words you should consider when wearing velvet are: k e e p i t s i m p l e. The thing with velvet fabric is that it can easily be overdone and look a little tacky sometimes. Velvet is the perfect balance of elegance and glamour on its own and it does not need much to make a great outfit. I went with a more casual look by pairing mine with a boyfriend fit jersey tee and layered my leather jacket on top.  Oh and did I mention the shoes! I just got these last week and I have never been more obsessed with a pair of shoes. Thank you Jeffrey Campbell for these beauties!

Leather overalls

Leather Overalls: H&M | Wool Blazer: Thrifted

Necklace: H&M

Floral Socks: H&M | Boots: Topshop

Neon Beanie: American Apparel

One of my obsessions this fall: Overalls! I found this great faux leather pair at H&M and I absolutely love them. I never thought I would have the confidence to wear an all leather pair but I decided to give them a try and was so pleased with how well they fit and how soft they felt.

I paired the look with a great men's vintage wool blazer I found on one my thrift adventures a week ago and accessorized with a neon beanie for a pop of colour and some of my favourite  jewelled accessories.

The Plaid Suit

Blazer: Thrifted | Plaid Trousers: H&M

Accessories: Urban outfitters | Forever 21 | Brandy Melville(top to bottom)

Middy Rings: H&M 

You probably remember this plaid blazer from one of my previous posts. Well I finally found the perfect pants for them! I have been looking for a plaid pant and blazer combo for so long and was able to get these two pieces for just under $50. Although they're not the same fabric and identical plaids, the two worked great together and complemented each other amazingly. 

I love the sophistication and chicness that a suit can carry. Inspired by men's fashion, we see more and more women adopting the look and looking extra chic while wearing it. 

I wore this look for a fashion show last week and paired the look with my staple grey beanie and some gold accessories. Simple but chic. 

Have a lovely friday!

Treasures in the vintage aisles

Sweater: Thrifted | Vegan leather shorts: Durumi | Boots: Topshop

Necklace: Brandy Melville 

Once in a while, you come across that piece of clothing where you just know you scored on and will treasure it in your possession for a very long time. This sweater is that piece for me and is by far one of my best thrift finds found in the men's aisles of a second hand store. It's hard to believe that anyone would let the one go but the saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure" couldn't be more true. 

I just love the geometric shapes on the sweater and the amount of detail that was put into it just makes it even more perfect. I paired it with my leather scalloped shorts from a small boutique called Durumi located in Downtown, Toronto(definitely check them out if you're into unique delicate jewellery) and to play things up, wore my blue denim shirt underneath so I could get the collar detail and a pop of blue. Lastly to add to the geometric theme, I added my gold 3D triangle necklace from Brandy Melville. 

Have a fabulous evening,
