Goodbye Danier Leather

I am sure you have a favorite store and that it always makes you happy to go there or even just to check out what is new online.  That store to me is Danier Leather so you can imagine my extreme sadness when it was announced that they will be closing all of their stores very soon.  It truly is sad to see another Canadian company closing it's doors after 44 years.  There are many different reasons why people say that Danier will be closing but to me it doesn't matter why they are closing but that they are closing at all!

 

 

I can remember purchasing my first leather jacket from Danier over 15 years ago.  The way the jacket fit and the way it made me feel when I put it on was like nothing I ever felt.  Of course my first leather jacket was not your typical piece that most people would pick but instead I picked a gorgeous soft white one.  This white leather jacket that I couldn't live without just happens to be the one that I am wearing in this blog post today.  I thought that it would be fitting to wear it to say goodbye to my favorite store.  

 

 

I have purchased so many pieces from Danier over the years as I was immediately hooked from my first purchase.  I even have an entire closet at home dedicated to all of my cherished Danier Leather pieces.  Not only have I gotten the most amazing things from there which includes a pair of cropped leather overalls but I have also come to know some of the employees incredibly well.  Some of them I even consider to be life long friends.  It wasn't just a store to me but more like a family and that meant the world to me.  

 

 

I wanted to thank Danier for always making such beautiful things, making me look great day after day and being an overall fabulous company!

 

So Goodbye Danier Leather you will be missed!

The spring has started off slow here in Winnipeg but now the grass has begun to turn green again! Makes me so happy to see that and I can't wait to start planting some flowers.  That will be a little while longer but at least the weather is going in the right direction!  This year I think I am even going to attempt growing some vegetables! I know for some that sounds so easy but for me this may be a challenge! I will for sure let you know how that goes! 

 

I am sure you have noticed that I am a person who wouldn't style a plain sweatshirt on my blog but how about styling one made from crochet?! The minute I saw this crochet sweatshirt from Chicwish (click here to see it) I loved it.  What a wonderful idea of mixing the shape of a sweatshirt with pretty crochet material.  Honestly this top is so comfy and I like that 3/4 of the sleeves are unlined creating some interesting detail.  This top to me is perfect for spring!

Cat Collar

A white blouse is something that every lady should have in their wardrobe. It is a classic piece that never goes out of style.  I have a few different ones in my closet at all times varying in sleeve lengths, shapes and sizes. Trust me not all white blouses are the same! Some are great for wearing on their own and some are just for layering.  It is all depending on the fit.

 

The white blouse I am wearing here is definitely my most unique one. It is from Choies (click here to see it).  The embroidered cat collar detail is so special and incredibly fun!  What makes it even better is it is under $20!  That really is an amazing deal!  I think this blouse would also be fun to layer under an oversized sweater and just have the cat collar peaking out. 

 

My style is always about mixing unusual pieces together and my cat collared blouse and radio bag from Mary Frances are a delightful combination!

 

Are you like me and have a few white blouses in your closet too?

I have a really big soft spot in my heart for novelty prints and of course novelty bags! 

I purchased this adorable hot air balloon bag last year and have worn it out quite a few times but never found the perfect outfit to show it off on my blog.  That is until now!  I was so excited to see the new printed skirts that Chicwish introduced this spring and one of them was a hot air balloon printed midi skirt (click here to see it). 

Don't you just love when you find the perfect pieces to go together to make one special outfit?  I often buy unique pieces even though I know I have nothing to go with them.  I always know the perfect complement will come along!  I just have to be patient.

Spring Statement

I am sure you have noticed that fashion trends often change so fast and what was in last year is no longer in style this year.  It can be frustrating as maybe you spent a lot of money on something trendy and it didn't stay in fashion long enough for you to get any use out of it. I know when I was younger I made that mistake a time or two but now in my professional as a Style Consultant I won't make that mistake again!  My clients often ask me what is a good fashion piece that they should invest in?  My answer: Invest in great pair of quality shoes! I promise you won't regret it and your feet will thank you.  Yes a good pair of heels can be comfortable, look amazing and last forever!

 

I was super excited to see what the Spring/Summer 2016 collection from Chie Mihara had in store for me!  Every season I am blow away by how gorgeous the shoes are and this season is no different! Click here to see the collection!  The hardest decision for me is always what pair to get first!!!  The gorgeous pair that I picked first is the pair that I am wearing here called Fan (click here to see them).  What attracted me to them was that they are a classic shoe but with some interesting design features.  The patent leather print that looks like mosaic tiles mixes beautifully with the suede edging and just check out the unique cut of the front of the shoe?!

 

What is also fantastic about this shoe that I am wearing is that it come in sizes 34 (US 4) to 42 (US 12).  I don't know of many shoe designers that offer this! Chie Mihara really does cater to everyone by making shoes that are not only completely gorgeous but comfortable too!
