Joe Fresh denim shirt and jeans, Nine West shoe, Zara jacket
There’s no better outfit than the Canadian tuxedo for Fall. It’s chic and super warm since you’re rocking a thick denim. On top I threw on my trusty leather jacket for some edge, more texture and honestly more warmth. For this outfit I wanted the shoes to speak for themselves. They’re giving me serious life with the Dorothy vibes. The Wizard of Oz was my number one movie growing up as a kid. My mother tells me she put it on at least once a day. My boyfriend recently said I don’t know how people can watch the same movie over and over, and I’m one of those people; I blame my mom haha. I saw these shoes at Winners and passed on them until two weeks later I couldn’t stop thinking about them and finally bought them and I ain’t mad!
American Eagle Sweater, Vintage Denim, Sam Edelman Loafers
You know the sweater I’m talking about when I say “that” sweater. It’s your go-to comfy sweater. Fluffy, cozy, your security blanket essentially. For me I don’t love wearing pull over sweaters but when I want to be my coziest that’s the sweater I go for. I love this one because although it looks like it would boil you up but somehow it’s very breathable. It’s slightly cropped with tiny slits at the side that I love, along with a faux turtleneck. Tiny stylistic details are what always grab me and turn basics into edgy pieces. Soft pink, cream I think is very flattering as well. I paired it with the perfect light wash vintage denim and dark green loafers for a touch of colour. Really digging this weather for “Fall”. It’s quite warm in Toronto so we’ve been able to wear just a sweater and be almost too warm in it outside. Fashion gets to live on for a while before we cover our personal style under a parka.
Thrifted Kimono, Public Butter Vintage Tee, Hidden Jeans via Winners, Zara booties
If you know me or you actually read my blog then you know how much I thrift and vintage shop. I definitely do it more than I buy fast fashion pieces and that’s because I feel like I have my basics down for the most part and now I’m buying pieces that add to my “collection” that I’m curating. Really cool, interesting, unique pieces I can reach for when I need a little something for an outfit. This shirt I could not pass up. It was $15 and tell me when you’ve ever come across a vintage dance tee, I have never in my 26 years, and atleast 12 of those years have been dedicated to thrifting. Fosse is a pretty big dang deal in the dance world so even though this shirt is very large, I had to have it. I like pairing bigger tees with something pretty and girly like this shiny kimono and tall boots. Just to give it a different edge. I would wear this out for drinks or dinner any night of the week.
Vintage T-Shirt via Vanguard Vintage, Vintage Lee Jeans Via Public Butter, New Balance Sneaks
Last weekend the boy and I took a trip to the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show. I love my man, he’s even a more detailed and slower shopper than me! Sometimes I find myself finished in a store well before him. He has such an attention for detail (it’s probably his OCD hah), bottom line is I scored a man who loves to shop and I’m not giving him up! This year I scored some pretty good finds. Last year him and I didn’t find much, but this year was a little better for me. I finally gave in and bought a vintage Coach bag that I’ve been eyeing forever, I also bought a little wooden eagle carve out for my new place in the new year and got this amazing top from Vanguard Vintage that says Toronto is Tops! Are we kidding! It’s so perfect. The cotton is so soft and worn but no holes (such a bonus) and the navy with white piping is what the best vintage tees are made of! I also got another top that is super hippie, femme from Vanguard with lace detailing and bell sleeves with a cropped at the waist finish, very Woodstock appropriate. We went to the show on the last day so I got these shirts at a pretty good deal, as well as knocked off a couple bucks on the other items that I purchased. Depends if you want to get there first and not miss out on anything, or go and score last minute deals.
