When I take a vacation I am always looking for the perfect souvenir to bring home with me to remind myself of my wonderful trip.  I am not one for bringing home logo t-shirts of the places I have visited (not that there is anything wrong with that) but that is just not my style.  I usually get a piece of jewelry and I did this time as well, a carved cameo ring from the cameo factory in Honduras and I will be showing that piece to you in an upcoming blog.  I decided this blog is all about the fabulous coat I purchased In Tampa, Florida in a store called Tatyana. Walking by the store I was drawn to the vintage looking clothing in the window.  I found this coat near the back of the store and the minute I saw it I knew I needed it! It is full of color and the pattern is so unique!  I purchased it immediately and it made me so happy that it was on sale as well! What made me laugh is that it is a winter coat and that is something I would not expect to buy in a warm place! I knew it was perfect for me and perfect for the winter back home here in Canada! This coat was an unexpected treasure to find in an unexpected place!

 

 

Have you ever found something to buy that was very unexpected?

Faux Fur & Sequins

Since being back from my warm and sunny vacation I have had a hard time getting used to the very cold temperatures back here at home in Winnipeg.  One thing that makes me feel a little warmer is putting on some faux fur.  I love faux fur as it adds just the right amount of glamour to any outfit without having a big price tag.  I own many pieces of faux fur myself and I like that you can either wear it as a cute jacket when you are inside or as a coat when you are outside. The options of faux fur pieces in the stores are endless! So have fun and get a piece for yourself! 

 

Since the day was so cold and dreary I decided that wearing my faux fur over some sequins would add a little bit of light to my day! Don't you just love the iridescent shine of my sequin skirt! Probably one of the coolest skirts I have seen in awhile!

 

How are you keeping warm this winter?

Carnival Cruise Vacation Style

Monday, December 29, 2014

I have been a little absent from posting this past little while as I have been on a wonderful vacation which included a fabulous Carnival Cruise!  The cruise boat we were on was called the Carnival Pride and it sailed out of Tampa, Florida and stopped in Cozumel, Belize, Honduras and the Cayman Islands.  I have been kept so busy with the fun daily excursions and I really enjoyed all the fabulous and exotic cruise stops! The highlights of my trip were going in a submarine to see all the beautiful sea life, visiting a cameo factory to see the carving of traditional cameos made from shells (of course I bought a gorgeous ring) and I even got to swim in the ocean with very large stingrays on a sandbar!  So much fun!

 

For me packing is always a challenge as I want to take so much stuff with me and I have to make sure to leave a little room in my suitcase as I need to bring home some souvenirs too! I think the most important pieces of clothing to take on vacation are pieces that don't easily wrinkle.  There is nothing worse than putting on a beautiful outfit and all anyone can see is how wrinkled it is.  I find rolling my clothing when putting it in my suitcase helps a little to stop some wrinkling.  This dress was a wonderful piece to take on my trip as it looks unique with the attached cape and it doesn't wrinkle easily.  It was a great choice to wear to one of the formal dinners on the boat! As my accessories are always something that makes my outfits stand out I think my cruise boat clutch bag from Kate Spade was the perfect finishing touch!

I am not much of a winter person as I hate the cold and most of the time we are in total darkness.  The sun rises so late in the morning and the sun sets so early in the evening.  The one thing that cheers me up the most is dressing in color.  I even find when I dress in color that it makes other people happy as well.  When I was out wearing this outfit you wouldn't believe all the smiles and compliments I received.  It is amazing what the power of some color can do! 

 

I styled my whole outfit around the colors of my fantastic bag from Choies that I am wearing in this post! (click here to see it)  I really like the pretty mix of colors and different patterns and the bag fits all of my things inside perfectly.  I also really like how affordable the bag is and I am sure it fits into everyones budget. Who doesn't like a good deal?!

Winter Apple - Cape Blazer

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

One of the new trends I have been seeing this year is the cape blazer and I love it! From the moment I saw one I wanted it.  It is something that is completely unique and that is what I look for in clothing!  I tried on a few different ones but this one from BCBG Maxazria turned out to be the best one.  The quality of this cape blazer is amazing compared to some cheaper versions as it held it shape better especially in the shoulders.  What I love about a cape blazer is that it 2 things in one.  I love blazers as they are great to add to any outfit to dress it up but the fact that this one looks like a cape from the back really adds the coolest detail.

 

What do you think of a cape blazer?
