Between the hours of 5 and 8 in the evening, the light is just perfect. It’s golden. Warm. Hugs your heart and soul. I’ve found it. Here’s to hoping it’ll stick around through the winter months. I’ll have to hunt for another golden photo spot for then.

During my high school days, I had formulated a mental image of what I projected myself to look like “when I grow up”. Fast forward to today, I’m somewhat grown up therefore somewhat able to look the way I wanted.
All white, always all white. That’s how I envisioned it, particularly with this face.

I know. It’s been a while.
A couple months ago, I graduated from university and soon after I entered the corporate world. Thus, outfits have been nothing but dress pants, dress skirt, dress shirt, dress dress. This is one of those “office” dresses that I can’t stop wearing. It feels like it was made for me.
Ever own a piece of clothes or pair of shoes that fit so well that you wish you could clone it because they don’t sell it anymore?

You might recall that once upon a time, I publicly admitted to not being fan of vintage shopping. Would you believe me if I told you that this outfit is vintage from head-to-toe?
Instead of trying to brave through racks of second-hand clothes that smell like a mixture of mothballs and old people, I’ve taken Justine’s advice and looked online for a more pleasant shopping experience. I have acquired several pieces from different eras of fashion history at the comfort of my own home and the results have been very encouraging. Online shopping does not give you the perk of trying before buying, but sellers are usually very good with providing exact measurements of their garments. As long as you are equipped with measuring tape and have a general idea of shapes that flatter your body, you can totally do online vintage. I am a believer! Justine would be so proud.
Fashion is fortunately cyclical, so let’s not fool ourselves into thinking that the coral/orange trend is somehow a new wave and that you have to buy something offered at a store today. This is a dress from the 60′s. Super en pointe for this season. I belted it because everyone belts everything these days. I am probably nuts, but I actually like the dress without a belt, which is probably the way people wore the pussybow dress back in the 60′s. Just trying to be historically correct!
Dress: Vintage from an Etsy store
Belt: Vintage from eBay
Shoes: Vintage from my aunt!
If you’ve been around the fashion blogosphere, you’re sure to have seen floating around different versions of the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch, aka RM MAC. I can totally see why the purse has skyrocketed to it bag status. The MAC is offered in so many colours, textures and patterns that there’s bound to be one for you. For a while now, I’ve had my heart set on either the black one with gold hardware or Aqua snakeskin.

In the spirit of adventure, I threw myself a curveball and got the Dusty Lilac. Ouuu a muted pink/lilac purse! I’m living life on the edge! Hey, you know I’m not usually a fan of muted colours, so this is a bit of a jump for me.
Cardigan: Smart Set
Ruffled blouse: Forever 21
Cuff: Toronto Designer! Can’t remember the name… oops.
I got this blouse from J. Crew on clearance and it is absolutely sumptuous. I’ve been wearing it nearly daily under sweaters.
