DIY Pink Flamingo Halloween Costume

Friday, October 31, 2014

Happy Halloween!  Despite being confused with a ballerina 50% of the time, this pink flamingo costume was a big hit and cute at the same time.  I hadn't planned to dress up during the day today but then I saw Veronika's adorable flamingo DIY for her daughter and it sparked an idea for myself.

Place d'Orleans Fashion Vlogger | 2014 Fall Fashion

Friday, October 31, 2014

We are in full swing Fall here in Ottawa so I've picked up a bunch of items for my favourite season.  This time of year is all about layers, dark and moody colours and natural materials like suede and knits.  Check out my newest video on Fall fashion above to see what I scored.

A Couple Outfits from Instagram

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Outfit deets:
* Old Navy jacket (old; similar)
* Accessories: Laundry by Shelli Segal fingerless gloves (similar texture, similar colour & splurge)  & Call It Spring circle scarf (old; similar, pretty grey option)
Just a quick post today on a couple outfits I shared on Instagram recently.  Not every outfit can be a 'photoshoot outfit' but I still like to share what I'm wearing (even for myself to look back for outfit inspiration!).
I've included links to similar items since a lot of my clothes are things I've had for a few years and I'm constantly re-styling them in different ways.  The boots up top I picked up in the Spring at BCBG super on sale and this was my first time wearing them--finally!  The sneakers below are the ones I picked up in Vegas back in June and something I've been rocking a ton on the weekends to run errands and shop (can't beat that comfort).
Hope you're having a great week! 

Outfit deets:
* Max Studio gauzy sweater (similar, similar, similar in black, more affordable option)
* Walmart cotton leggings
* Accessories: Forever 21 cross-body bag, seen here (similar, similar) & branch necklace (pricier option)

Affordable Find | Over the Knee Wedge Boots

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

I wanted to start a new 'series' where I share some affordable finds when I come across them.  These will be items I would genuinely purchase myself, that are on trend, and at a great price point.

I absolutely love these boots and would totally buy them if I didn't already own this similar pair, plus they have all sizes available right now!  At under $50 they are a steal and I've had great success with GoJane in the past and purchased tons of shoes from them.  

I love the wedge heel on these--easier to walk in, especially if it's snowy outside but you want to dress up a bit.  I'd pair these with leggings, skinny denim and short skirts with oversized sweaters.

A few more affordable boots I'm loving, after the jump...

Filming videos and editing them is something I love to do but it's rarely seamless so I compiled a quick video with a few outtakes from the last year to laugh at.

Thanks for watching!
