Just another rainy day…

I woke up and it was gloomy out. That’s my kinda weather! I am pluviophile! Yes, I enjoy the grey clouds, the sound of rain on the windows and the smell in the air. Walking in the rain is so relaxing and peaceful. So today, I sort of didn’t make that much effort in the fashion department. I wanted to be comfy and loosey goosey; kinda translate the weather into my wardrobe.

So I own this really cute 90s vintage Smart Set dress with a massive slit in the bottom center front. It is the softest thing ever. In a very delicate cotton fabric. It kind has a Laney Boggs vibe in She’s all that  and that makes it even more cool and interesting.

I didn’t want the dress to just give me a square shape, so I added a belt to cinch it up at the waist to give myself a little more shape and curves. A little bit of curves don’t hurt anyone! Besides, curves are there for us to celebrate them. Hello hips!

Since I super wasn’t going to make an effort and be in heels all day, I wore my favorite Aldo booties. They’re so battered, it’s not even funny! I have used them so much and then some. I had a bad experience with Aldo once a like over 10 years ago and I never wanted to invest in their shoes anymore. But I was searching for the perfect flat booties that can work in both a dressy way and a casual way. So I found these booties last November and I have worn them countless times with dresses and they give me style and comfort. Yay for finding what you need!

I then added my favorite boxy shirt from Topshop which I got last summer. It has high slits and it’s striped! Ughhh! The obsession is so real guys…I’m incorrigible. I just love me some stripes. That along with sweaters shoes and fries…I’m hooked.  I seriously adore Topshop. Their sizes are perfect. They have beautiful and super creative garments to offer and the quality is definitely there. They’re a little bit expensive but it’s worth shopping there, especially if you’re looking for good quality wardrobe basics.

– What I wore –
SHIRT: Topshop ♦ DRESS: 90s Smart Set ♦ BELT: Thrifted ♦ BOOTIES: Aldo

This absolutely was one laid back outfit and I am happy I felt free all day…not constrained whatsoever. However, I’ve got this super existential question, should I put this dress up for sale or keep it? I love it so so much…but I can’t keep all these vintage items in my closet just for myself!

What do you guys think? Keep or sell?

Food Style

What we do on weekends…

Food is always a good way to share happy memories with friends and family. It’s basically one of the only times where you sit in groups and enjoy each other’s company without rules, boundaries or limitations. Food is a social activity and so we humans take this time to share our ideas and thoughts about life and share our points of views about the things we love. My friends and I are always on the hunt to trying new food and to be quiet honest..sometimes we’re amazed by how awesome the food is and sometimes we’re just meh…not too impressed. We decided that this weekend we would try Russian food. I was a little scared because I did not know what to expect, but luckily it turned out pretty good.

We went to a little restaurant called La Caverne on Côte-des-Neiges in Montréal. A homey Russian restaurant with the cutest decor. It’s small and very humble…perfect for intimate dinners. The place was filled with people and there was a live band, well a couple singing in Russian and sometimes English music. The atmosphere made me feel comfortable and cozy, it almost felt like being home.

I had Borscht soup and Chicken Kiev. The Chicken Kiev was super good. It was well cooked and super tender. The potatoes were so well seasoned and the salad sauce was super delicious. Unfortunately, we ate some much there was no room for dessert. But if you’re looking to experience Russian food for the first time and you’re in the Montreal region, I suggest you try La Caverne. It’s worth it…and the prices aren’t bad!

So I can’t just talk about food…I want to also share what I wore for this night out in town…it was rainy and a little coldish…we style wasn’t gonna be compromised by that! Not with me anyway..so here’s what I wore:
