house coat



I have a current obsession with maxi cardigans and kimonos. I just love how it has that easy, care free vibe. I literally picked this one up from the robe section at the thrift store. ha. I don't know if I pulled off lounge wear for going out, but it's nice to throw over to stay warm and I love how it has pockets! Sometimes you got to be creative by looking in different sections of a store. For example, sometimes I like looking in the boys sections for tshirts or button ups, or the maternity section for flowy bohemian inspired tops and dresses.

 Have you tried shopping in other departments?

the "leopard coat"




I found this leopard coat on the sale rack at Forever 21 and jumped on it. I'm inspired by my style icons like Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and people on the streets. It's definitely a bold piece but something I like to dress down so that's it's not too overbearing and doesn't come off 'posh', if you know what I mean. For example, pairing it with denim, leather, boots, or a beanie. I'm not satisfied with how my outfit turned out but I thought I'd share anyways. Plus I got to shoot with my cousin Joy, which is always fun!

What do you think of the leopard coat? Would you wear it?

fur hat collection

 I have a number of fur hats in my closet so I thought I'd share. Most of these are gifts and thrifted. I hate to admit but 
sometimes I'm shy to wear them because of their boldness. But hey I'm Canadian so I should sport them to stay warm! 

Which one is your favorite look? 
Ps. What do you think of the darker lip? Have you tried it?

Last year I found this cocoon coat at the thrift store and almost fell in love. I was searching for a coat just like this but I say 'almost' because I wasn't too keen on the color. I had something else in mind. I decided to make the purchase anyway because it was such a good deal and I loved the fit of it. Now it has grown on me and I've come to love it! I'm so glad I didn't give up this treasure and it so happens to be an 'in' color right now, which is always a plus. Thrifted treasure hunting seriously is my favorite. I could totally do it for a living! It's exciting and you're always bound to find something unique, cool, interesting. 

I also jumped on the 'wear sporty sneakers with chic outfits' bandwagon and finally got a classic black pair of free runs. They are comfortable (of course) and go with pretty much anything in my books. I'm excited to wear them out. The sporty chic trend is a current obsession for me and I think it will be for a while.

On another note, my other new favorite accessory is this gold necklace that my sister got for me for Christmas. She got it from Oak and Fort. Since moving to Edmonton, it's become one of my favorite stores and it's surprisingly affordable. I love all of their jewelry pieces and admire their delicacy and simplicity. They're definitely something you can wear with anything and have become my go-to accessories. 

Have you had this too where you find something you didn't quite like at first but have come to love? 
I'd love to hear your stories and how you made it work!
