Zapaka - Vintage Retro Style dresses

A vintage style dress is definitely one that I lean towards.  I love the fun bold prints and the beautiful shapes of the dresses.  So when I checked out the store Zapaka online I immediately loved their dress designs.  I looked around the website and honestly it was hard to just pick one dress as I loved so many of them.  I finally nailed down my choice to this Black rose printed dress (click here to see it).  The dress came fast through the mail, probably within a week or just over and arrived by DHL.  In Canada we often have duty charges but there was no extra fees when the package arrived so that was nice.  When I opened the package and saw the dress I was impressed.  The dress looked exactly like the pictures online.  The fabric is really nice being 98% cotton and 2% spandex.  The dress is only lined in the top half but the thickeness of the fabric of the dress is really great and holds it's flaired shape nicely.  I ordered my size based off of Zapaka's size chart and it was very accurate as the dress fit me exactly as I wanted when I tired it on.  Did I mention the dress has pockets?!  I know we all love our dresses with pockets!  I loved the dress so much I decided it needed to come along with me on my cruise vacation.  I think the dress was perfect and I am quite pleased with my order from Zapaka.

Golden Cruise

If you have ever taken a cruise you know that there are a few special formal dress up nights for dinner.  I always look forward to those nights as I love any reason to get dressed up.  Even though I love these fun nights packing for them can be a little difficult as pulling anything out of your cramped suitcase can come out looking like a cruppled mess.  I always try to unpack my suitcase and hang up everything as soon as I get onboard and try to work out the wrinkles.  

 

 

Two things I knew I needed to take on my vacation for a dress up evening is a Chicwish dress and a Mary Frances bag!  These 2 things are a must have for me! My cruise themed Mary Frances bag was the perfect accessory to take with me.  Every detail is perfect! Even the staff on the boat were asking about it and wanted to know more about it.   I think it looked amazing with my metallic floral midi dress (click here to see it).  The shape of the dress is really lovely and the length is just fantastic for a formal night out!  I am so happy I got to enjoy this dress in some warmer weather on my cruise but at home I can enjoy this dress now as well by just layering it over a turtleneck or putting on a warmer cardigan on top. 

 

 

Do you love to dress up on vacation too?

Winter White Coat

Sunday, January 26, 2020

One of the most important things you can wear here in the cold winter weather is a coat.  I often see in the stores that coats are quite basic and mostly come in dark colors and I really want to wear something special.  I have been looking for a dressier coat that is unique for quite awhile and this one from Chicwish (click here to see it) is perfect.  I just the love the shape of the coat with the asymmetrical frill hem and I love that the coat is a very nice winter white shade.  I think the lighter shade of the coat really highlights the details of the texture and the hem.  Even though the coat only has a one button closure it is still quite warm with the quilted lining inside the coat.  I obviously wouldn't recommend it for long periods outside in the winter but it definitely keeps me warm for short trips outside.   

 

Do you have a favorite coat that you love to wear?

HBC Stripe spotting: Hudson's Bay

It's a new year! Can't believe it's 2020! I hope your year is starting off good so far!  With a new year that means another year of fun and creative outfits from me and I hope you will stick around and enjoy them! 

 

 

Let's start off my first post of 2020 with a favorite of mine: The Hudson's Bay Iconic Stripe collection and some of the new fashion pieces.  If you are from Canada you will definitely know the iconic 4 stripe pattern.  It's been around since the 1800's and is a big part of Canada's history.  I am sure if you are not from Canada you have seen it around as well as there are a few celebrities that have been seen wearing some striped pieces.  This year the Hudson's Bay striped fashion pieces are really outstanding.  Some of the new pieces are part of a collaboration with blogger Color Me Courtney and they really are delightful.  As someone who loves to dress in color these pieces are a dream come true.  I hope you enjoy these striped pieces are much as me! 

 

 

In Canada you can check out all of the HBC stripes collection online at the Stripe Shop at Hudson's Bay (click here).  In the USA they have a few pieces at Lord & Taylor (click here).   #stripespotting

It's nearly the end of the year! Can you believe it?!  I am excited to see what the new year will bring. 

 

One thing I know is that in 2020 I will still be wearing fun outfits with some fantastic accessories!  I know my style has changed over the years but I still make every outfit unique and creative.  I always put some thought into what I put on and some times that can take a few extra minutes to get my outfit just right. 

 

Creating fun color combinations for an outfit is also something that I really enjoy doing and I really hope to push the boundaries this upcoming year.  The color combo I am wearing in these photos is burgundy and pink.  It is not a new color combination but it is definitely one that I love wearing over and over again.  The colors work so well together!

 

What is your favorite color combo to wear?
