As we transition from fall to winter here in Montreal, outerwear is essential; and since most people tend to keep their outerwear through several winters, the best way to change up your look and refresh your cold-weather gear is to have fun with scarves!
I have here, a fab selection of gorgeous eternity scarves from indie designer, New Flair Accessories! I’ve used them to breathe new life into my old coat and jacket selection, and add some affordable excitement & style to my winter wardrobe this season!
Each scarf is handmade with love, out of a fantastic variety of luxe fabrics. From sheer to polar fleece, you can be sure to find the right scarf to fit your look, whether you’re style is super traditional, or more on the edgy side of the spectrum.
The first scarf is a made of a really soft jersey. I love its neutral animal print, and the way it accentuates the silver and black ensemble I’ve paired it with.
This next one is another jersey scarf, with thee most fabulous butterfly print!!! I love how bright and cheerful it is – like a little reminder that summer will be here again one day; and how perfectly it works with my royal blue wool coat!
Now, when I mentioned the transition from fall to winter, I meant it! The holiday season is upon us, so a stunning, long length infinity scarf is the perfect way to keep warm! (And a great accessory to showcase my new haircut in!!!)
And last, but certainly not least – in fact, probably my favorite scarf of the bunch, this amazing, jade green jersey scarf, lined with ribbed black velour – the perfect holiday scarf to spruce up any outfit or coat, with just a hint of sparkle.
Capes are a super hot trend this fall, and it’s not hard to see why. They’re comfortable, easy to wear, and come on! They’re capes (!!!), pretty much the coolest articles of clothing any human being can own!!!
I picked up this fabulous geo print cape from Zelie For She over the summer, and I’ve been saving it for the perfect autumn weather like we had over the weekend here in Montreal!
Since it’s a cotton cape, it works equally well over a cami, in lieu of a blazer in warmer weather; but my favorite way to wear it is over a cozy, long sleeved top, like this alligator textured sweater, when it is slightly cooler out.
Paired with some light blue jeggings, black patent pumps for a touch of glam, a stunning, handcrafted African cuff bracelet by La Caverne De Djénéba, and a great pair of sunnies from Forever 21, my cape looked fab and caught the attention of everyone in sight!
It’s officially thanksgiving weekend and I’ve been trying to get this post out all week, I swear!!!
First, the day I was supposed to do my shoot, my bestie gave birth to a beautiful baby boy (Yay!!!) annnd then I dropped my phone in the bathtub while attempting to shave my legs and binge watch Vampire Diaries at the same time (Damn you, Damon!!!). So, just add those to my list of excuses for why I don’t get posts out on time… *sigh*
Aaaaanyway, I’m super excited to finally show off this fabulous, pixelated plaid, bodycon from Toronto based, Voluptuous Clothing!!! I first saw it, worn to perfection by the stunning Fluvia Lacerda, and featured on the cover of the Fall Fashion issue of DARE Mag and fell in love! It’s the absolute perfect autumn dress, with a classic, curve hugging silhouette and this fall’s hot plaid trend, which I just can’t get enough of!
I’ve paired it with these incredibly cool, wide calf, thigh high boots from SexyPlus Clothing (Yasss!!!), another Canadian owned business (Whoop whoop!!!) and this stunning leather and bronze, handcrafted, African statement necklace, by Montreal Jewelry Designer, Djénéba Daou, for a chic fall look that works for anything from work, to turkey dinner with the fam!!!
I’ve been seeing so many other bloggers doing little recaps if their outfit posts at the end of each month, and I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon and start doing them too!
There’s something so satisfying about seeing your favourite styles all grouped together before your eyes, so here are mine:
September was a good month, but I’m looking forward to everything I have in store for October!!! So much to come!!! Stay tuned!!!
Out of their summer slumbers come the cable knits, the quilting, the tweeds and flannels, but the most exciting fall textures this hear have to be the leathers and the faux furs!
How exciting it was to finally see this Michel Studio faux fur vest in store at Addition Elle!!! I had been lusting for it ever since I spotted it in one of this fall’s video promos, and I snapped it up immediately!
I paired it with another one of Addition Elle’s gorgeous decadent, fall pieces – their Love & Legend, black pleather skirt, to really indulge my textural desires.
I opted for a risqué, strappy lace bra from Hips & Curves underneath to add yet another layer to the mix, a sexy pair of laser cut peep toes, gold bangles, dangly earrings, and my fabulous vintage clutch, for an edgy, texture-rich look that will definitely turns up the heat for fall!!!
