Spring has arrived, it almost seems like we skipped spring and moved right on into summer!  It was so nice to actually put on a spring/summer dress and enjoy the warm breeze outside.  This maxi dress from Chicwish (click here to see it) is perfect for just about any height.  I am petite and I love the length and the model in the picture online is tall and it looks like a nice length on her too!  The details on this dress are really nice with the crochet and embroidery.  What I really like about this dress is the full button front, but to put it on you only have to unbutton a few buttons and then slip it over your head. Since it has the full button front though you could wear the dress completely open and wear it as a long cardigan which I am definitely going to wear it as in the future.  I love when I can get a few different ways to wear a dress!

 

I hope you are enjoying the start of spring!

I am back with a new post!  It's definitely been awhile and a lot has changed since I last posted.  I think things are changing daily now with this pandemic and I hope where you are, you are safe and healthy.  Going out now has changed as well, the big outing for the entire week is now going to the grocery store or the pharmacy.  I am still happy to put on something nice even if it's just to make myself happy.  I got this beautiful Chicwish skirt (click here to see it) before this pandemic begin and I absolutely love it.  This beautiful shade of green is one of my favorite colors and I love to pair it with other bright and cheerful shades.  I know we could all use a little bit of cheering up right now.  As you can see I am social distancing in this photo with no one around so I hope to bring you some more photos that I can safely take.  I hope everyone enjoys their upcoming weekend!  Stay safe everyone!

Zapaka - Vintage Retro Style dresses

A vintage style dress is definitely one that I lean towards.  I love the fun bold prints and the beautiful shapes of the dresses.  So when I checked out the store Zapaka online I immediately loved their dress designs.  I looked around the website and honestly it was hard to just pick one dress as I loved so many of them.  I finally nailed down my choice to this Black rose printed dress (click here to see it).  The dress came fast through the mail, probably within a week or just over and arrived by DHL.  In Canada we often have duty charges but there was no extra fees when the package arrived so that was nice.  When I opened the package and saw the dress I was impressed.  The dress looked exactly like the pictures online.  The fabric is really nice being 98% cotton and 2% spandex.  The dress is only lined in the top half but the thickeness of the fabric of the dress is really great and holds it's flaired shape nicely.  I ordered my size based off of Zapaka's size chart and it was very accurate as the dress fit me exactly as I wanted when I tired it on.  Did I mention the dress has pockets?!  I know we all love our dresses with pockets!  I loved the dress so much I decided it needed to come along with me on my cruise vacation.  I think the dress was perfect and I am quite pleased with my order from Zapaka.

I am sure you will find something that you love!  Sizing available is from XS to 3XL!

Golden Cruise

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

If you have ever taken a cruise you know that there are a few special formal dress up nights for dinner.  I always look forward to those nights as I love any reason to get dressed up.  Even though I love these fun nights packing for them can be a little difficult as pulling anything out of your cramped suitcase can come out looking like a cruppled mess.  I always try to unpack my suitcase and hang up everything as soon as I get onboard and try to work out the wrinkles.  

 

 

Two things I knew I needed to take on my vacation for a dress up evening is a Chicwish dress and a Mary Frances bag!  These 2 things are a must have for me! My cruise themed Mary Frances bag was the perfect accessory to take with me.  Every detail is perfect! Even the staff on the boat were asking about it and wanted to know more about it.   I think it looked amazing with my metallic floral midi dress (click here to see it).  The shape of the dress is really lovely and the length is just fantastic for a formal night out!  I am so happy I got to enjoy this dress in some warmer weather on my cruise but at home I can enjoy this dress now as well by just layering it over a turtleneck or putting on a warmer cardigan on top. 

 

 

Do you love to dress up on vacation too?

Winter White Coat

Sunday, January 26, 2020

One of the most important things you can wear here in the cold winter weather is a coat.  I often see in the stores that coats are quite basic and mostly come in dark colors and I really want to wear something special.  I have been looking for a dressier coat that is unique for quite awhile and this one from Chicwish (click here to see it) is perfect.  I just the love the shape of the coat with the asymmetrical frill hem and I love that the coat is a very nice winter white shade.  I think the lighter shade of the coat really highlights the details of the texture and the hem.  Even though the coat only has a one button closure it is still quite warm with the quilted lining inside the coat.  I obviously wouldn't recommend it for long periods outside in the winter but it definitely keeps me warm for short trips outside.   

 

Do you have a favorite coat that you love to wear?
