Winter Velvet

The cold winter weather has arrived here in Winnipeg and it will be sticking around for quite some time!  I am just going to have to accept it now! LOL.   To make myself feel better about the cold weather I have put on the most gorgeous velvet dress and matching beret from April Cornell!  This time of year I think velvet is the most perfect fabric to wear!  It's warm and cozy and these 2 velvet pieces are made of the softest luxurious material!  

 

This velvet dress (See it here: click here in Canada or click here in the USA) is absolutely fantastic to layer with.  I chose to layer it with black this time just to make the gorgeous pattern stand out but I can't wait to layer this dress with some colored tops as well!  The detailing of this dress is really special.  The two front pockets are just so sweet (I know we all love pockets)!  One of my favorite details of this dress is the blue stitching at the top the pockets and also around the neckline.  I always love when a company puts in little extra special details like that.  It shows that they have put some real thought into creating each design!  I have taken some close up photos of the details so you can see for yourself!  Let me tell you this dress is top notch quality! 

 

 

The only thing that can make this adorable velvet dress better is wearing it with the matching beret (See it here: click here in Canada or click here in the USA).  As someone who absolutely adores wearing hats this is such a treat to have a matching hat to an outfit! The hat is made from the same soft velvet and it is also lined as well.  I will for sure wear this hat with many differenet outfits as well as it will go with so many different colors.  The options are endless!

 

April Cornell really out did herself with these 2 pieces!  I think everyone should have them for this winter! Perfect for going out, parties and of course wearing them everyday!  No need to save these pieces for a special occasion.

Pink Bow

It's definitely sweater season here!  At the beginning of the month here in Winnipeg we had a huge snow storm!  Most of the snow has since melted but that heavy wet snow caused quite a bit of damage.  The clean up has begun but it will for sure take some time to get things back to normal again.  I hope the weather where you are is better than here!

 

 

Since the weather has become much cooler I had to bring out all my sweaters to wear.  I always love wearing a pretty sweater but this lovely pink one that I am wearing (see it here) is definitely something special with the large bow detail at the neck.  I absolutely love that it different than most of the sweaters out there in the stores and I will not be seeing everyone wearing it!  The soft pink color is so sweet but it also comes in 3 more colors just in case the pink color isn't your thing.  I will for sure be wearing this gorgeous sweater all fall and winter long!

Mary Frances - Disney Collection

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Two of my favorite things are Mary Frances handbags and anything Disney!  I am sure you must know that if you follow my blog! LOL.  So you can imagine my excitement when Mary Frances and Disney collaborated to make a collection of handbags and small accessories!  I mean what more could I ask for?!!!  You have to check out the whole Mary Frances Disney Collection by clicking here.  You seriously will be blow away by the detailing of each piece in the collection!  I can't believe the amount of work that goes into each piece and each bag takes days to make by hand.  Some of my favorite pieces of the collection are: Castle beaded handbag (every girl needs a castle right?!), Cinderella's carriage handbag, Cinderella's glass slipper clutch/crossbody bag, Rajah coin purse, Ursula crossbody clutch, and Beauty and the Beast stained glass handbag to name just a few!  Although honestly I would absolutely love to own everything.

 

 

I had a small role in this lovely collection being created which is pretty cool!  A very lovely Disney representative discovered Mary Frances accessories because she saw pictures of me with my Mary Frances handbags.  She then contacted Mary Frances to start the magic of a collaboration between the two brands.  I think that is pretty awesome and I am so happy to be a part of such an amazing collaboration!  Even though it's a small part, it still makes me happy!

 

 

One of the bags that I fell in love with from the Mary Frances/Disney collection is called Charmed Cottage (click here to see it).  It is inspired by Snow White and her cottage.  I am just amazed by all of the design features on this bag!  There are so many details including 3D apples in a bowl set into the window sill, the wooden door, the blue bird embellishments and at the top off the bag is the most gorgeous large red bow.  The entire front of bag is completely beaded or embellished.  Even the back of the bag has perfect bead detailing too with the tree and blue bird.  Just take a look at all of my photos below to see these sweet features close up.

 

 

This handbag is a wonderful size.  I can fit my large phone in it, my wallet, my keys, my lipstick and a few other things with no problems! 

 

 

If you are able to get this bag for yourself, DO it, you won't regret it!  All of Mary Frances' handbags and accessories are made in limited numbers and are only made for a short period of time.  They are all like collector's pieces to cherish forever!

 

 

You must check out all of Mary Frances' new collections by clicking here!  You definitely will find the perfect piece for you!

Sheer layers and florals

Monday, September 09, 2019

It seems that fall has begun here in Winnipeg! Definitely a little sad about it as summer went by too fast!  The mornings are cool and then the afternoons are quite warm.  This is the time to start wearing layers.  At the beginning of fall my favorite layers to wear are very light ones.  This very sweet lace kimono (see it here) that I am wearing is absolutely perfect!  It really provides a nice amount of coverage and just the right amount of warmth for the cool mornings.  The longer length is my favorite and I can't resist the unique puff sleeves!  I have layered this kimono over a very dressy outfit in my photos but I can see this piece layered over just a simple t-shirt and a pair of jeans and look equally amazing!

 

What kind of layers do you like to wear at the start of fall?

Palm Leaf

I can't believe it's already the middle of August!  Summer has really gone by quickly and I don't want it to end yet!  I know the warm weather will come to an end soon so I must really enjoy what is left! 

 

I am sure you know my obsession with bold prints so when I saw this beautiful maxi dress I had to have it!  The palm leaf print is so gorgeous and perfect for summer.  I was a little worried that this maxi dress would be too long on my short frame but it works well and the skirt part falls to my ankles.  It seems like this dress is a great length that will work well for most heights, which is fantastic as that doesn't happen too often! 

 

There is one really neat feature on this dress that you will love!   At the back it has a small cut out part at the waist so just a peak of skin shows.  This works really well with the elastic waist at the back, which makes this dress super comfortable and quite unique.  Don't you just love a dress with little extra special details?!
