That 70s show

I am soooo soooo soooo freaking in love, head over heels, with this pants <3 If I could, I’d wear them every single day. I love feeling unique. I have always had that in me, and whenever I would see someone else with the same piece as me, I would literally be bummed out. So vintage was the perfect gateway for me to find unique and special pieces to add to my wardrobe and ensure that no one else would have it. Vintage is not only exciting and wonderful, but it also helps the environment. Recycling and upcycling is very important to me, especially after working in the fashion industry. Anyway, I could go on and on about how vintage shopping and thrifting is super hype and cool and eco-friendly…but without making this blog post 10 pages long…here’s how I wore my favorite flared pants from Zara.

What I wore:Ā 
Sunglasses: Simmons.
Top: Vintage floral silk shirt. Label: Equipment. Now available in my Etsy shop.
Pants: Zara. Currently available online and in stores. (89.90$ CAD).
Shoes and necklace: Aldo.

You can find a lot of vintage pieces that offer style, comfort, quirkiness and personality. You have to be patient and creative when shopping/thrifting. You have to know what you want and be sure of yourself. Like this delicate beautiful floral shirt, you can get vintage pieces and mix and match them to any modern piece in your wardrobe.

Be unique but most importantly, be you!

Bloody Mary

I picked up this lipstick on a whim without even swatching it…I took a risk, purely because I loved the name: Bloody Mary. I guilty, sometimes, buy products for the packaging or the name (when used…I mostly do that with nail polish..weird, I know, but we’re all weird in our own way!!!). So I felt like wearing it today. And since I didn’t want to make an effort with my wardrobe, I went for a monochromatic street style look. This is the result of my impulse lip purchase…..

It’s a very pretty color and I am so so happy with it. It’s a hot pinkish-orangy red. Goes super nicely and perfectly with my skin tone. ANDDD, it’s matte šŸ™‚

What I wore:Ā 
Jacket: Only Leather bomber.
Sweater: Zoe Karssen.
Jeans: Rachel Zoe.
Shoes: Adidas.
Sunglasses: Betsey Johnson.

I could honestly go monochrome forever and it wouldn’t bother me. But since I want to be fair to every other color out there, I experiment.

What did you guys think of NYX’s Bloody Mary…is it a yay or a nay?

How to wear floral prints

I was excited to get some of my vintage pieces out of the closet and into the light…but if you liveĀ in Montreal, then you know that snow decided to pay us one last visit. To beat the not so winter more like spring blues…I decided to wear some floral prints to get into the spring/summer vibes a little early.

Here are 2 looks styled with vintage pieces I owned. I mixed them in a modern way for 2 completely different looks.

What I wore:
– Pink Ā burnout top
– Forever 21 skinnies
– 80s floral blazer
– Industry booties
– Vintage layered necklace

I love wearing prints. But to be completely honest, sometimes floral prints are scary..because if not worn/styled correctly, it could end up looking like a hot granny mess. The second look is definitely my favorite and I felt a lot more confident in my own skin.

Hope you enjoyed the looks. Let me know in a comment below which look you like best.
